'The Princess Bride' Just Got A Hilarious Feminist Makeover

'The Princess Bride' Just Got A Hilarious Feminist Makeover

On Nov. 12, Canadian writer Anne Thériault took to Twitter to respond to Time Magazine's decision to include the term "feminist" in their "words that should be banned in 2015" poll.

Her reaction was a perfect mix of humor, feminism, wit -- and of course -- "The Princess Bride" references.

Then Thériault's lightbulb moment:

And #FeministPrincessBride was created:

"You mean you and the patriarchy wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept." — #feministprincessbride
