Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is an out and proud feminist, and when he’s not making people shoot out a geyser of maple syrup foam into their pantaloons by throwing them a Sweet Valley High cover model smile, he’s making people shoot out a geyser of maple syrup foam into their pantaloons by supporting women’s rights. But there was a time not too long ago when Justin Trudeau didn’t know that men could be feminists. But then while watching a video of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 2014, PM Trudeau learned that it is okay for men to say they are feminists. His mind was blown the same way my mind was blown when I learned that cats aren’t only girls and dogs aren’t only boys. No, I didn’t just learn that last week. It was last month, you stupid asshole.
As the audience sprinkled crushed Valium into their panties to keep their crotches from loudly and wetly howling over the sparkle twirling out of the orgasm-inducer orb that Trudeau calls an eye, he had an onstage conversation with Melinda Gates at an event for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in NYC yesterday. Melinda gave Trudeau a gold star for empowering women, and he talked about how when he was a student at McGill University, another student told him that only women can be feminists. So he went through life thinking he was feminist-adjacent. But then in 2014, he walked into the kingdom of knowledge (YouTube) and the kid from 3rd Rock from the Sun became his guide to ultimate wokeness.

“It wasn’t that, ‘Oh, I’m going to follow his lead.’ It was like, ‘Oh, OK, it’s OK for men to say that they are feminists in a public sense. Great, I’m going to finally do that,'” Trudeau told the crowd.
By calling themselves feminists, the prime minister said, men could help be part of the solution and to realign the balance between the genders.
“That’s why I will keep saying I’m a feminist until… it is met with yeah, ‘OK, we know that. Move on. It’s not a big deal anymore.'”
You may have rolled your eyes at it taking a celebrity man to tell him it’s okay to call himself a feminist, but I’ll just say the same thing I tell a Craigslist Casual Encounters hook-up whenever he asks me what I want to get into and how I want to bust: Oh, it doesn’t matter how we get there, just as long as we get there.
