Liberal feminists are losing their minds over Kylie Jenner’s “Handmaid’s Tale” themed birthday party she threw for her friend Anastasia Karanikolaou. According to Jezebel, there were “Handmaid costumes, ‘servants’ at the entrance and inside that claimed ‘under his eye’, and an interior decorated like a house in the fictional Gilead. There were also themed drinks like “Under His Eyes tequila” and “Praise Be vodka.”
The theme majorly triggered feminists, who said the influencer completely ignored the oppressive themes behind the book/tv show and criticized them for failing to recognize the reproductive health crisis poor women are facing.
Kylie Jenner throwing her friend a Handmaid’s Tale themed birthday party complete with robes, Gilead flags, “Praised be” vodka and “Under his eye” tequila is so tone deaf, at any time, but especially when women’s rights and autonomy are particularly under attack. Disheartening.

I honestly believe Kylie Jenner did NOT understand The Handmaids Tale if she’s throwing a themed party about it.

Things I never thought I would tweet:
Kylie Jenner hosted a Handmaid’s Tale themed birthday party AS A JOKE.
Don’t @ me about the Kardashians unless you’re prepared to talk about privilege, whiteness and how the loss of freedom is so fucking funny.
Fuck her & her lip kits.
