Seriously, who says that feminists don’t have a sense of humor? Brooklyn Museum’s Sackler Center gives out their “First Award” to a female trailblazer. Joining the ranks of Sandra Day O’Connor and Toni Morrison? Miss Piggy.
Yes, the Muppet.
Personally, I can see a few issues here. The first is that Miss Piggy has spent about 40-50 years chasing around the same frog trying to get him to wife her. There were two movies made about it, and in “The Muppets” Kermit was straight up verbally abusive. And I quote:
“Piggy, why do you have to always be so overdramatic about things? You know, it leaves me no choice but to do things that hurt you.”
The other is that her name is “Piggy.” Why are feminists giving an award to a self-loathing body shamer? It’s going to be standing room only in the “safe space” when she gets the award, while the more brave will stay in the auditorium doing jazz hands while screaming “Microaggressor” at her.
But hey, better a fictional character than Hillary Clinton.
