Translation:Women need men like fish need bicycles.
Notwithstanding the fact that it's kind of absurd to call this a "SJW" sentence (considering it caught on in the 1970s, long before modern Internet culture), if you really have that much of a problem with it, replace the nouns with whatever you want, and voilà! You have learned Grammar.
This is what some of us have to do for every sentence that starts or ends with "my wife" -- which is a LOT more frequent, on Duo and other language courses always -- and it works out just fine.
Just wanted to say that I like those quirky sentences ... but jeez - calm down people!
OMG Duolingo mentions gay marriage or now and then a light-hearted sentence like this one! And on the other side there are sentences like "the girl likes pink" -
Get the pitchforks! Or wait - maybe just breeeeze?
Even if I wouldn't like some of those sentences - still so much better than all the other boring language courses. So I guess I just wanted to say that I do not feel preached to. I'm sure if one would want to one could find almost in every sentence "a preachy meaning" . Kind of says more about those people who react to those sentences than the sentence itself...
It's because in the late 80s Guinness had a famous TV ad in which all the men disappeared from the world. It was going rather well...until the camera turned to a maternity ward in which all the cradles were empty. Then, in the last shots, the quote came up followed by the fish laboriously pedalling along the street on its bike.
I don't know what it had to do with beer, but it was a pretty cool commercial for the time!
I just love how people first post something that clearly violates community guidelines and then try to tie it to "freedom of speech" and "SJW mods". Freedom of speech does not and has never meant that you can say whatever, whenever, wherever. And by no means it overrides local standards. Leaving aggressive comments that are bound to start a flame war and then acting all surpised when mods do their actual moderating job - oh my gosh, democracy is definitely in danger!
