Last week, Portlandia made headlines when the staff of Portland’s real feminist bookstore cut ties with the show with a very angry blog post titled “Fuck Portlandia,” so the sneak peek from season 7 IFC released today – titled “What About Men?” – is a case of perfect timing. Any regular viewer of Portlandia will tell you that Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen punch up rather than down, and that’s also the case in the clip, where the two play frustrated men’s rights activists who want a safe space of their own. “The only place I feel safe expressing myself is on social media,” Fred says, to which Carrie replies: “My safe space is Reddit.” “You’re on Reddit? Yeah, me too.”
Catch the rest when season 7 of Portlandia premieres on IFC Thursday, January 5th at 10:00pm.
