During his audition for ABC’s reboot of American Idol, 19 year-old Benjamin Glaze happened to mention he liked his job as a cashier because it provided him the opportunity to meet cute girls. When Luke Bryan asked if he’d kissed a girl and liked it – a play on Katy Perry’s hit single – Glazer confessed, “I have never been in a relationship and I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship.” Kind of sweet and refreshing in this day and age, right? Enter Katy Perry. WATCH.
In case you missed it, the false prophets of feminism have their panties in a collective wad. Again.
In summary, Jourdan Rodrigue, a reporter for the Charlotte Observer, asked Cam Newton a very specific question about his receiver’s ability to run routes, revealing an arresting knowledge of football. Cam smiled and said it was funny to hear a female talking about routes because, let’s be honest, women generally do not talk with such specificity about football. Yeah. Yeah, I know Rodrigue is a sports journalist and it’s her job, but Cam Newton’s comment, punctuated by a smile, was neither offensive nor sexist and it certainly was not disparaging. Dare I suggest Jourdan Rodrigue, et al. over-reacted?
I know. I’m late to the party, but I recently watched the best movie I’ve seen in a long time, Hidden Figures. The film, a biographical drama based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly, is the story of three brilliant African-American mathematicians, Katherine Goble Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson who worked at NASA, each leaving her own indelible mark on history. Katherine Goble Johnson calculated trajectories for Project Mercury, Friendship 7, Apollo 11 and Space Shuttle missions. Dorothy Vaughan was NASA’s first African-American supervisor and Mary Jackson attended graduate school at night to become NASA’s first female engineer. These women sought to achieve equality by challenging unfair labor practices and discrimination at NASA in 1961. Their story, and others like it, sparked what historians call “the second wave of feminism,” marking the 1960s as a decade of profound cultural transition which forever altered the role of women in American society.
Shame on me for wishing the fate of the Pussyhat would be the same as those hideous brides maids dresses we wear once and shove into the dark recesses of our closets. Alas, feminist whack-jobs in cities across America are slapping those pink puppies, I mean pussies, atop their heads once again and playing hooky from work because today is NOT just another ordinary day. Today is A Day Without a Woman.
According to the organizers…
If you think NOT showing up for work or NOT caring for your home and loved ones is NOT the best way to shed light on the importance of women in society and the workforce, CONGRATULATIONS! You are a normal, rational person. C’mon, you might be thinking, that’s not all A Day Without a Women is about, and you’re right. A Day Without a Woman is also about Reproductive Rights (of course it is!) and Gender Justice, which evidently is something to which gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, Two-Spirit – whatever THAT is – and gender nonconforming people are entitled, but not straight males who were born that way. I could share more of this idiotic manifesto, but you’d need a Pepcid, so I’ll just hyperlink to the official A Day Without a Woman page (SURPRISE! It’s on The Women’s March website) and let you troll at your own risk.
I contemplated attending the Women’s March on Washington for about a nano-second before I figured out it was not my march.
On Friday, January 13 – a week before the march – New Wave Feminists, a Texas-based pro-life feminist group, was added to the event’s official list of partners. Wow, I thought, maybe this is a sign that modern feminism is beginning to acknowledge that a moral opposition to abortion and a desire for political, economic and social equality of the sexes are not mutually exclusive.
