The Naked Empress

Whenever someone posts a comment on any radfem-dominated forum on the internet that is critical or even merely questioning of radical feminism and gets the inevitable response, "Fuck off, this is not a 101 space, don't come back here until you have cured yourself of your ignorance of feminism", I think of PZ Myer's famous "Courtier's reply". Perhaps it's time for an update:
I have considered the impudent accusations of Mr Dawkins with exasperation at his lack of serious scholarship. He has apparently not read the detailed discourses of Count Roderigo of Seville on the horrific tortures of the Empress in the elevator, nor does he give a moment’s consideration to Weepy Amy’s masterwork, On the Dehumanization and Traumatization of Seeing a T-shirt I Don't Agree With. We have entire schools dedicated to writing learned treatises on the oppression of the Empress, and every major newspaper runs a section dedicated to the evil rapist nature of all men; Dawkins cavalierly dismisses them all. He even laughs at the highly popular and most persuasive arguments of his fellow countryman, Lord D. T. Mawkscribbler, who famously pointed out that for the Empress, a privileged western white woman, to be on the receiving end of a clumsy pass is an infinitely worse atrocity than for a Muslim woman to be a victim of female genital mutilation.
What do you think, will it catch on?
