    The article on ‘feminism’ was interesting. I think the major reason people won’t call themselves feminists is, all the ideals feminism initially espoused by the first wave, like Gloria Steinem, have pretty much been achieved here, but in the rest of the world (Muslim countries, totally not shitholes like Africa and Central America, and Mexico, looking at y’all, here) they are just a bad joke. Why aren’t our feminists here marching against the Muslims who hack up their women’s genitals and force them to wear tents? Why aren’t they marching against the machismo Hispanic culture of smacking their women around and forcibly having their way with them? Kim Ogg recognizes the problem, but the pink hat brigade? Radio silence.

    These ‘feminists’ we see out marching with their pink hats don’t actually care about any of that, rather, they are just another group of useful idiots papering the streets to ‘resist Trump,’ just like Code Pink was there to resist Bush. Once Obama was elected, turns out they really didn’t care about the Iraq War. At that point, it was just the libertarians who were truly against it.

    Why aren’t these feminists ditching the Muslim, Linda Sarsour? Her good friend, the anti-American Imam in NY just had his kid along with others, busted for running a training camp for kids, to train them as school shooters. ….not the feminist role model I’d want my daughters to emulate.

    They aren’t because they don’t care about that.

    Finally, in the interest of equality, why aren’t feminists clamoring to close the ‘death gap?’ The most dangerous occupations, where the most people die…..virtually all men. Why aren’t women insisting on taking those dangerous jobs?
