Breakfast Cereal Contributes to Rape Culture -- Hilarious Video Mocking Feminism

Maybe it IS possible to parody modern feminists.

Frosted Flakes and feminism? The two don’t seem to go hand-in-hand but a new video parody brilliantly shows how liberals could make anything an issue of sexism. The cheeky video uploaded to Youtube Nov.11 mocks the feminist tendency to overanalyze everything, by complaining about sexism in an unexpected place- breakfast cereal commercials. 

The video entitled, “Tropes vs Women in Breakfast Cereals” is a play on feminist activist Anita Sarkeesian’s Youtube series, “Tropes Vs. Women,” which complains about how women are portrayed in video games. 

Feminist host Evan Delshaw introduces the topic like so: “Today we’re going to carefully over-analyze various cereals and tell you why you’re a horrible person for enjoying them.” 

Delshaw has a lot to say about how “sexism is alive and well in cereal commercials.” He talks about the wage gap and catcalling in a Lucky Charms commercial; domestic assault against women in a Corn Pops ad and “the normalization of sexual assault” and “rape culture” present in a Cinnamon Toast Crunch ad. 

This is user Evan Delshaw’s first video but let’s hope he makes more videos mocking the overly analytical tendencies of feminists.
