What happens when you put “I’m a feminist” in your Tinder profile? Laura Nowak found out, and she has been posting the absolutely ridiculous messages she’s gotten since she started the @feminist_tinder profile. The responses range from grody to downright combative.

Here’s a fun drinking game as you peruse the screenshots (and comments!) posted on the @feminist_tinder Instagram account: take a drink for every time someone says they’re a meninist. Take a shot every time someone says “bitch.” Finish your drink for every guy who suggests reverse racism exists and that white men are under attack.

We’ve got some aspirin and water for your inevitable hangover on the other side. Good luck, friends.
