An "Anti-Feminist Bake Sale" held by the College Republicans at Bowling Green State University caused quite the stir Monday, triggering a fervent protest of the sugar-packed demonstration, the BG News writes. Along with cookies and brownies, the bake sale participants distributed "Radical Feminist Agenda" fliers, featuring quotes such as "All men are rapists, and that's all they are" and "The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Protesters—who eventually outnumbered the College Republicans—condemned the bake sale's message, saying it misrepresented the feminist movement and reinforced old stereotypes. "They've taken quotes from first and second-wave feminists and provided no date, time, or context." These demonstrators fired back with their own rhetoric ("Anti-feminist is half-baked sale" and "Feminism is about choice") and, eventually, they persuaded the College Republicans to change the event name to "Anti-Radical Crazy-Feminist Bake Sale."
