Feminist Site Offers Advice Guaranteed to Ruin a First Date

First dates are pretty stressful. You've met someone new, someone you find yourself attracted to, and you want to make a good impression. It's that moment when the whole world is open to you. The other person is like Schrodinger's Date: at once "the one" and a complete train wreck in the making up until the moment the date starts.

So the site Everyday Feminism has some advice for you.

But it's not the usual advice about being yourself because any man worth having will respect that, or anything else sane. Nope. They are offering "10 Things Every Intersectional Feminist Should Ask On A First Date."

Before you ask, no, I'm not completely sure this isn't satire. Because it seems too awful even for a site like Everyday Feminism.

The column includes awesome advice like interrogating your date about Black Lives Matter and divestment from Israel. Because nothing gets romance started like those topics.

And I understand the desire to find someone who shares some of your opinions, but it's a first date, so you probably shouldn't be demanding the person's exact positions on sex work or illegal immigration.

When my wife and I met, we found out we both love science fiction, Italian food, and Celtic art. We laughed at each other's jokes and enjoyed each other's stories.

You know what we didn't talk about? Politics.
