Feminist Mad Max is a single topic blog which posts image macros of screen captures of Max, the male protagonist of the 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road, and pairs them with feminist texts in the style of Feminist Ryan Gosling.


Early reviews of the Mad Max film received praise from feminists and others for plot points and female characters that were well-written and well-rounded. This, in turn, raised the ire of Men's Rights Activists, who called the film feminist propaganda.[6] Feminist Mad Max is possibly a response to this allegation.

Feminist Mad Max created its first post on Tumblr[1] on May 18th, 2015. As of May 27th, the post had over 13,000 notes.



On May 22nd, 2015, four of the images were taken from the blog and uploaded to the subreddit /r/trollxchromosomes by poster Hotnonsense. The post received 1,088 votes (96% upvoted) as of May 27th, 2015. [5]

The Daily Mail wrote about the Feminist Ryan Gosling Tumblr on May 25th, 2015, and thereafter it was featured on the AV Club, UPROXX, and USA Today. [2][3][4] As of May 27th, the blog's most popular post continues to be its first post.

Long story short: the movie had multiple female characters who were well written, relevant to the plot, could get shit done own their own and came to the male characters rescue instead of vice versa.

And this made a lot of dudebros angry, because its a "mans movie, why are all these women doing the cool stuff". But despite this the movie has been really well received, both as a film piece but also as a refreshing depiction of women as strong characters.

Thus, in the footsteps of Feminist Ryan Gosling memes, this one was born.
