Although we live in 2021, sexism and misogyny are still very present in our everyday lives. When you put it into perspective, it’s usually only people who are not cis-straight men that haven’t been on the receiving end of an inappropriate comment or something worse at least once in their lives.
However, it’s not important what people say to us or about us, but how we react to it. And is there a better way to react to something bad but reacting to it with wit and sarcasm?
Today we’ll present you with some of the most hilarious responses that feminists have used on the internet to make a point and clap back at sexist and misogynistic trolls on the internet.
Scroll down, check out our list, and feel free to share your own examples in the comment section down below.

Telling a woman to get back in the kitchen is a weird insult to lob on Twitter. We can still tweet from kitchens. We have wifi & data plans.
