The Syndrome Mag


Do you suffer from a frequent tendency to write jokes and funny articles?
Are you in need of an outlet so that you don’t take a flame-thrower to the patriarchy or key its car?
Do you grapple with alarming urges to collaborate with other funny feminists who can make you laugh AND make you think?

If you experience any of the above symptoms, ask our editors today about what The Syndrome can do for you.

Here at The Syndrome we’re always looking for writers who want to help educate, enlighten, and promote feminism through comedy and humorous story-telling. We’re a multinational nonprofit organization that has been around for seven years. We’re committed to providing witty and insightful articles to crack readers up while cracking through the glass ceiling. We love to laugh and believe laughter can be one of the most effective ways to make the changes we want
to see in the world.

If you’re an author who believes in pay equality, fair distribution of labor (including emotional labor), stopping mansplainers in their tracks and making manspreaders give you your space, standing up to sexual abusers, fighting a system that convinces women they’re not enough, and empowering women one joke at a time, we’d love to hear from you.

At The Syndrome, we cover a broad list of topics from a feminist’s perspective, including those that directly address gender equality issues such as reproductive rights, pay equity, #MeToo, the glass ceiling, and women in politics (because we REALLY need to laugh about these things) and those that are lighter-hearted and focus on what it’s like being a woman in the world today, like how to put on a sports bra or why random people want to touch your belly even when you’re not pregnant. Funny is who we are and what we’re looking for, no matter the topic.

For some ideas, stories are organized by topic and sub-categories on our homepage.

Health & Beauty: body perception, aging, mental health
Work: sexual harassment, pay gap
Relationships: parenting, family, friends, marriage, dating
Equality: feminism, LGBTQ, racial justice, allies
Culture: travel, politics, entertainment, immigration, holidays

We accept first-person experiential essays, satirical takes on hot topics, and funny lists. We only accept completed articles, not concepts, abstracts or pitches
