Two of our all time favorite women got together for a day of sandwich-making, quilting, and girl talk about Ryan Gosling and which Pinterest recipes were worth it! Just kidding, Hillary Clinton and Lena Dunham got in front of a camera to
talk lie about feminism. Yeah, it really is as bad as you’d imagine, but we’re here with you, holding your hand. It’s only because I care.
Hillary is stunned, STUNNED that women, particularly young women do not want to identify as feminists. I feel like I’m speaking to blank walls sometimes about feminism… No, actually, blank walls would be better. At least I could project some personality on the wall with nothing but my imagination and soprano singing voice. “Feminism” as a movement has changed over time. I wrote about it here, you should go read it after you read this. Original feminism isn’t even close to the same as the “trigger-warning butch haircutted chain-gang that we have today. That’s the cliff notes version, Hillary and Lena.
But here’s the real “trigger” for my conservative sensibilities, “Feminists believe women have the same rights as men: politically, socially, economically, that’s what it means.”
One of these days I’m going to write a book about what is a RIGHT and what isn’t a RIGHT. To be clear, you do not have a right to something you think you deserve. That’s called being a brat and it’s not the same as a right. You do not have the right to be liked, listened to, approved of, employed. You actually do not have the right to drive, get married (gasp), or eat as much pizza as you want without gaining weight. I’m super bummed about the last one. That means “social rights” isn’t really a thing. Sorry, Hillary. Neither are “economic rights.” Do we really have to bust the pay gap myth thing again? It’s getting old… Look it, if we had those “rights” we’d all be driving Bugatti Veyrons and sitting pretty nomming on pizza and not getting fat. Alas, tis not so.
YOU DO have the right to say whatever you want, thanks to freedom of speech. Ironically enough, this is the right most often attacked by SJW feminists themselves who want to see it done away with in the name of “hate-speech” laws. You have the right to LIFE (which the liberals think isn’t a thing until a few hours after you’re born). You have the right to pursue happiness (but not to BE happy). You have the right to freedom and liberty, to peacefully assemble, to practice your religion (unless you’re a Christian and believe in the wrong stuff), to keep and bear arms, to a speedy trial before a jury of your peers…etc. See The Bill of Rights for more on what rights actually are.
Everything else you have to work for and earn. Or in the case of love, be in the right place at the right time and meet “the one.”
And I’m still sorry about the pizza…
