Garlic Bread

Once-peaceful Garlic Bread fan page attacked for ‘transphobic’ meme

So delicious... Or is it? Garlic Bread Memes

The Garlic Bread Memes page. It’s intended to be a safe space for garlic bread aficionados to meet other, like-minded garlic-bread aficionados in a compassionate, non-judgemental environment.

But now, all that has changed. The page, which has over 250,000 followers, has been torn asunder by a controversial meme that’s left many followers feeling oppressed and misunderstood.

As Pink News reports, the page is usually home to lighthearted, only slightly terrifying memes such as these:

Garlic-bread-3

 

Garlic-Bread-2

But ever since one meme decided to confront gender identity, garlic bread has lost some of its considerable savor:

So now, the transgender hysteria that’s not so convincingly sweeping the world has moved out of the bathroom and into the kitchen.

“I posted it because I find it funny,” said the 18-year-old who runs the page, in an interview with Buzzfeed. “The meme is not transphobic, in my opinion at least. I honestly think that there are two genders. Trans people are not a gender –- they are people that move from gender A to gender B.”

One transman said the meme is all in good fun, albeit in a way that allowed creative use of the term “butthurt”:

And there’s “butthurt” aplenty. Many members are upset that this garlic-themed meme not-so subtly argued that there are only two genders in the whole known universe.

And then, some people insisted on asking completely reasonable questions.

So. How much do you feel like caring about this?
