About

Triggered Feminist, also known as Angry Feminist and Ficki Fiona, refers to a photoshop meme based around a still image of a woman with short hair and glasses appearing angry during a confrontation with supporters of Donald Trump. Online, images of the woman are often used in image macros, photoshops and animated GIFs in jokes about "triggering" feminists and left-wing activists.

Origin

On June 1st, 2016, The Alex Jones Channel YouTube channel uploaded a video titled "Trump Supporters Shut Down Protesters" (shown below). In the video, a woman with short hair wearing glasses is shown arguing with a man about statistics about SA against women. The original video was removed following YouTube's ban of all InfoWars channels in 2017.



Spread

On June 2nd, 2016, screencaps of the woman were submitted to /r/The_Donald,[1][3] introducing her as "Ficki Fiona." The following day, a thread about the woman was submitted to 4chan's /pol/ board, where many nicknamed her "Ficki Fiona."
