Feminist Site MedusaMagazine.com Shutting Down -- Founder Admits It was Satire
I've never heard of the site, but this was a pretty elaborate troll job:

Quote:I created “Medusa Magazine” and I am shutting it down because Feminist stupidity has surpassed satire.

Maybe Jezebel is also an Onion site!

The key line in the article:

Quote: “We are shutting down our rather hilarious project because we can no longer compete with our competition. We have come to realize that our competition is not other satirical websites, but rather the people we are trying to satirize.”

When satire and reality have become one of the same, you reaching levels of new insanity.

THEM. TO. EVEN. -I cannot even make a joke because it is all so seriously stupid, but seriously serious....or is it? I am serious, unless I am kidding.....no really, I am seriously kidding. Right?

Not the first time a feminist parody blog has shut down for the same reason. From memory someone created a parody of Feministing, a blog for young feminists. That site went off the rails so much it was almost satire. You can't parody something that has completely lost the plot.

I'm pretty sure it's owned by the same guy who owns Age Of Shitlords.

I can't see any evidence of the left being successfully trolled by this site, only condemnation of its articles from the right, like:

Medusa is a terrible name for a feminist site because we all know that none of them are making any man rock hard ever.

Good troll job though Smile
