Can a fart be misogynist?

Top feminist academics that have respectable diverse doctorates from medieval art, 6th century English to Women’s Studies gathered at the University of Toronto meeting center to discuss if human flatulence could be sexist.

Ashleigh Ingle a proud feminist and an anarchist argued that because of patriarchal gender norms women were not allowed to release gas in public because of men’s unreal expectations of women to be clean and feminine. Furthermore she articulated that if a woman was to fart in the presence of a man and the man responded by farting louder than the woman, than that would be rape.Untitled-1

“By farting louder the man is using passive aggressive violence to position himself as dominant, this intimidates the woman to subconsciously not release as much flatulence and thus the woman fearing for her safety doesn’t fart as loud as a sign of submissiveness, this in turn contributes to rape culture and women being oppressed.”

Most women who experience #FartRape are too intimidated to report the sexual violence.

The discussion boiled down to women’s bodies once again being controlled by society and women being told what to do.
Local activist Steph Guthrie a feminist advocate and community organizer who specialises in social media and interactive events proposed an online campaign to tackle this misogyny that “keeps women down and trapped in their own bodies. I just find it horrific that the patriarchy has been controlling women’s flatulence this whole time and we have just realised this now, it is time for feminist worldwide to re-educate women on how they are being discriminated against.

Guthrie’s twitter hash tag #FartRape has started to trend as women are taking control of their own bodies by naming and shaming men guilty of fart rape. Guthrie hopes the guilty men will be identified and then their workplace will be called up and their employer will be notified the type of person they are harboring in the workplace.


But Ingle argues that it simply isn’t enough, “Don’t tell women to fart louder tell men not to fart so loud” This is clear victim blaming and government should pass laws to make male farts above a certain decibel illegal to make human flatulence equal and not discriminate against women.

Science advocates have argued that because of sexual dimorphism men are larger, need a higher protein intake and thus can relieve more flatulence, but the speakers at the conference were adamant that it was a socially constructed gender norm that oppressed women to the point that they physically do not release equal amounts of gas as men.

  1. This is why they are the perpetually offended. When you have no other problems to complain about, you invent problems; if you have no struggles on your day to day lives, live a life of privilege and are not threatened by anything which cannot be dismissed as a 1st World problem, then you have to sink this low to pretend you’re relevant.

  6. yeah some really big dude sticking a tube up his butthole, forcing the other end of the tube into your butthole, and then pumping long massive & gassy farts out of his cavernous bowels into your colon would be pretty traumatic.
    oh, that’s not what “fart rape” is?

  8. Feminism is a mental disorder. It really should be listed in the DSM. Treat with lithium and a nice healthy man fart to the nasal appendix, several times per week for no less than 2 months.

  9. This woman is obviously insane. So we should pity her. Except she has a soapbox. So we need to destroy her soapbox. And then pity her. And get her the help she so desperately needs.

  12. Um… just got this link belatedly from a friend. This IS A JOKE…. right?? I mean, there is nobody that could be this stupid in real life. This has got to be an internet version of Saturday Night Live. Somebody…. anybody…. looking for some assurance here. This is a joke, right? This Ingle ninny doesn’t really exist, right?????

  13. I blast my farts on Feminist’s all the time! They even burn upon release, so you can imagine the level of toxicity, but it’s ok because i don’t think the toxicity level of my farts will top that of a typical feminist in her very being.

  14. I have celiac… I didn’t get diagnosed until after my 20s…
    I have cleared man a room & out gassed many men….

  15. As an anarchist, I find this to be such a draconian topic for “feminists” to be discussing, when they should be discussing issues like child sex slaves in america, or anyone who is brainwashed to stay with an emotionally crippling person/people. Or worse yet, how about the fact that governments and corporations are working together and constantly suppress everyone who isn’t rich or white and target middle and poor class citizens? Seriously, this woman who calls herself an “anarchist” really doesn’t have a clue what true suppression is. A fart is a natural function of many species, whether it be human or animal. So saying that you were raped by a fart is like saying that you were raped by a burp. People like her make me sick because everytime they say something stupid, they give actual anarchists not just a bad name or a bad reputation, but also make anarchists look stupid.

  16. My wife can, and does, fart way louder than I do. It’s silly to assume she’s raping me! I thought this article was a joke at first. Now….I’m just shaking my head:(
