I occupy my days working on a PhD which includes a hefty chunk of taxonomy development. This blog is half procrastination and half catharsis from said day job. Unfortunately, sometimes they meld together. While looking through the search terms which lead to this blog, I happened upon something worrying: I was mentally taxonomising search terms.
I hereby present a taxonomy of search terms used to find this blog. They are all real search terms.
I. The relevant (these are, unfortunately, slightly boring)
A. “Straw feminist” statements: “all men are rapists”, “feminists hate men”.
B. General searches for information about feminism: “what is misogyny?” “how many people identify as feminists?” “feminists and equal pay”
2. Psychology concepts
A. Relating to ambivalent sexism: “reverse scored items in the ASI”, “how to measure misogyny”, etc.
B. Relating to evolutionary psychology: “evolutionary psychology”, “evolutionary psychology critique”
C. Relating to Nudge: Only one of these so far, but it made me the happiest woman in the world: “nudge- worst book of the year”. Yes. Yes it was.
3. Names of people mentioned in this blog: Dorries and Roger Helmer MEP. I am glad.
4. This blog- searches for “Another Angry Woman” or “stavvers”. Meta.
II. The irrelevant (In which I extend an apology to all those who found this blog looking for porn, and instead ended up with feminism)
1. Searches for porn
A. Knicker-based porn: “british woman flashes knickers”, “world’s sexiest woman giving you a glimpse of their knickers”, “upskirt orgasme [sic]“
B. Porn involving belly buttons: “fucking beautiful navels”, “sex with navel”.
C. Porn involving hairy women: “hairy woman in the world naked pic”, “big cock fuk hairy cunt [sic]“
D. The quest for fanny: the top referrer in search terms to this blog is “female fannies”. More so than searching my name.
2. Sex advice for fanciers of angry women
Invariably pertains to sex with angry women, for example, “how to make an angry woman calm by fucking”, “learn how to fuck angry woman”. For the former, I would say that fucking isn’t always the best approach to making an angry woman calm.
3. The downright bizarre
Some absolute blinders here:
“islamic view of wisdom teeth”
“drawing or picture of an angry woman with a tray full of fruits”
“black bloc badminton” I do hope this tactic is adopted at future demos. I am not sure the police would know how to react if a black bloc showed up and started enthusiastically volleying a shuttlecock.
The vast majority of searches were of the not-relevant variety, which leads me to ponder a new tagline for the blog:
“Another Angry Woman: Sorry. You probably weren’t asking for it.”
Accompanied, of course, with a drawing or picture of an angry woman with a tray full of fruits.
