#TrigglyPuff: This is What a Social Justice Warrior Looks Like


What #TrigglyPuff Means : The Other McCain

The phenomenon of #TrigglyPuff — Cora Segal, the angry feminist who disrupted an event at the University of Massachusetts this week — deserves extended analysis, and I’ve got a 4,000-word draft in queue, awaiting the final touches. Spending two days analyzing the social significance of this comedic phenomenon was perhaps too much, but that’s my job. You need someone to totally overthink it? I’m available.

Anyway, while working on that brain-straining endeavor, it dawned on me what a small world radical feminism actually is. Cora Segal became notorious in March 2014 for a “Fat Justice” event at Swarthmore College that I blogged about, and here she is two years later, notorious again.

Even a single dandelion seed has a purpose in life. What in the hell is hers?

When I was eighteen I wanted to go to college, but I couldn't. Two of my friends went to Hampshire College. I would take the bus West to visit them whenever I could. What a place, people sitting around naked posing for paintings. Halls of the dorms clouded with pot smoke, and the girls! I got laid by a girl who thought it was so cool that I couldn't or wouldn't go to college. A dark haired, dark eyed beauty that wandered the dorms was rumored to be the Shah's daughter. I wanted to live there, because there were people who did just that. They just hung out. Nobody gave a damn, and damn near anything went. What a place.

Is there a rule that a person has to look ugly and disgusting in order to be a part of one of these movements?

Secondly, is this movement she's in similar to a bowel movement?

Didn't your parents teach you not to mock a person's appearance?

"Didn't your parents teach you not to mock a person's appearance?"

Yes, but they had never seen or listened to a bitch like that in their entire lives.
