‘F*ck Portlandia!’ Real Life Feminist Bookstore Blocks Filming Over Transphobia — Do YOU Agree??

You go, humans!

While Portlandia may not seem like the most offensive show on television at first glance, according to one Portland-based business, that’s simply not the case.

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein‘s comedy is currently filming Season Seven… but it’s looking like they’re going to have to find a new feminist bookstore for their famous Women and Women First sketch!

That’s because IRL book shop In Other Words is boycotting the IFC series for being trans-antagonistic, trans-misogynistic, racist, cheap, and plain ol’ not funny.

Apparently, Fred and Carrie’s crew has not been the most accommodating of IOW’s progressive principles. In fact, they allegedly tried to make the store remove a Black Lives Matter poster from the window for a shoot just this past Spring… so a volunteer for the store responded with a “F*ck Portlandia” sign instead (below)!

While that’s just one example, the literally outlet believes the Saturday Night Live alum’s Candace character is a mockery of the transgender community, and is standing behind their decision to block filming, writing in a blog post:

“Several months ago the In Other Words community agreed to discontinue our relationship with Portlandia. This was a direct response to a particular egregious filming of the show in our space which saw our store left a mess, our staff mistreated, our neighbors forced to close and lose business for a day without warning, and our repeated attempts to obtain accountability or resolution dismissed. It was also a direct response to a show which is in every way diametrically opposed to our politics and the vision of society we’re organizing to realize. A show which has had a net negative effect on our neighborhood and the city of Portland as a whole.

The current board, staff, and volunteers were not involved in the decision, made six years ago, to allow Portlandia to film at In Other Words. We stand behind our collective decision to discontinue our relationship with the show. And we f*cking love the sign.”

Put a bird on that, Fred.

D-d-do U think Portlandia is in the wrong??
