Women are sending this Tory MP cake-eating selfies after his comments about feminists who want to have their cake and eat it


A Tory MP is facing a backlash over comments he made at a men's rights conference.

In a speech that has emerged online, Philip Davies said politically correct males are pandering to "militant feminists".

"In this day and age the feminist zealots really do want women to have their cake and eat it", he said at an event last month for Justice for Men and Boys, an anti-feminism party.

He also complained about the drive for "so-called equality" that favours women. And some Twitter users have responded in the best way possible.

This #feministzealot movement has seen women sharing pictures of them eating cake - proving that actually, they will have their cake and eat it, and they'll enjoy it, thanks very much.

Honestly, some of the tweets are just so inspired.

Oh, and there's a Facebook group too - simply called "Feminists eating cake".

FYI, Justice for Men and Boys, whose event Davies was speaking at, suggested in their 2015 election manifesto that men should receive their pension earlier than women because they work harder and die younger.

Oh, and it also says the Government should scrap schemes which attempt to increase the proportion of girls and young women studying science, technology, engineering and maths subjects.

FYI, since the speech emerged online, Labour said Philip Davies should have his Tory whip withdrawn for showing open contempt for women, while the Liberal Democrats said his comments are "astonishing" and "truly ignorant".

Meanwhile, The Fawcett Society, which campaigns for women's rights, has suggested the MP should start working for the Donald Trump campaign.
