We Heart: Feminist Hulk

Twitter seems to reveal an endless capacity for creativity.  The Hulk, that comic book icon of exaggerated masculinity and brief sentences, is a natural fit for some Twitter satire. The Hulk has several online personas, including Drunk Hulk, Cross Dressing Hulk, and of course, The Real Hulk. Our latest favorite Twitter feed is Feminist Hulk, who’s been posting for less than two weeks, but already won over our hearts.

What does a feminist Hulk do, you ask? Feminist Hulk smashes the patriarchy, of course. Here’s a post from May 11.

HULK’S PENIS DOES NOT WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO MASCULINIST HEGEMONY.

Feminist Hulk manages to talk about some complex gender issues in less than 140 characters.

HULK QUESTION CULTURAL PRIMACY OF SEXUAL DIFFERENCE, BUT RESPECT FREEDOM TO SELF-IDENTIFY IN CONVENTIONAL WAYS.

Twitter has room for other progressive-minded Hulks, as well. Cross Dressing Hulk is the pro-gay rights, high-heel wearing, nail-polish-chipping incarnation of the Hulk. Cross Dressing Hulk tweeted this on May 15:

FEMINISTING LOVE @FEMINISTHULK – HULK FISTBUMP IN RADIOACTIVE ANTI-PATRIARCHY SOLIDARITY:http://bit.ly/aMNShU

To which Feminist Hulk responded:

HULK GRATEFUL TO @xdressinghulk FOR LOVE. HULK SUPPORT @xdressinghulk IN WEARING HEELS, GOOD FOR REACHING PATRIARCHY ON HIGH SHELVES.

Funny and feminist. We love Twitter’s Hulks.
