“Toxic masculinity? We need a name for a feminist version.”
A conservative blogger on Sunday suggested a new term for out-of-control feminism: “mad cow disease.”

Musing on Twitter, Lori Hendri lamented that that the name was already in use to refer to bovine spongiform encephalopathy, a neurodegenerative disease of cattle. So she solicited alternative suggestions.
We need a name for a feminist version because mad cow disease has already been taken.

Twitter users embraced the idea of a female counterpart to “toxic masculinity”: The tweet was liked nearly 9,000 times and got over 2,000 retweets. Hundreds of people weighed in with comments and suggestions.
Many of them stayed in the cow category, with proposals like “Angry Heifers,” “Bovine Bitchery.” and “Udder Madness.”
But other offers included “Going Rosie,” in apparent reference to President Donald Trump’s onetime nemesis Rosie O’Donnell, the Rush Limbaugh classic “Femi-Nazis,” and simply “PMS.”
It goes to show: From the “fake news” outrage over the Covington boys to Gillette’s Super Bowl ad, conservatives have tired of the growing vilification of men by feminists, and the culture more broadly. Meanwhile, women can seemingly get away with murder under the banner of feminism.
