Ok leftists assclowns, liberals. Let’s chat. I know we don’t see eye to eye on everything. We like guns and red meat. You like kale and hatred toward anyone who has a different opinion than you. We’re a little bit country and rock and roll. You’re a little bit “hey hey, ho ho, something something, rhymes with ho.” We call such things “disagreement,” and you call us “Nazis.” But what’s the deal with these videos lately (see ‘Mic’ Video Claims EVERYONE is Racist and Pompous MTV Demands White Men Abide by These New Year’s Resolutions), like Mic having little girls cussing about (all disproven) feminist talking points?
Really, I’m asking seriously. Who are you appealing to? What heart and/or mind are you hoping to change by having little girls cursing like Hillary Clinton on Election Night? How exactly does that video celebrate women?
Because if you really think being called “pretty” is more offensive than saying “****,” it’s probably because you were never called pretty. Because, you aren’t pretty. See how that works?
Another macro-point with which to beat your idiot faces: there’s a reason girls like dressing up and playing princess. Every time you tell a girl she shouldn’t play princess, you’re insulting her imagination, telling her the feminine fantasies she’s playing out are wrong. So don’t feign surprise when she grows up angry at the mythical patriarchy you pushed on her by selling her a bushel of fake “facts.” Or perhaps that’s your goal.
There’s nothing wrong with femininity or expressing femininity by wearing a dress or wanting to be called pretty. As it’s also not wrong for a boy to dress handsomely and be called “handsome.” It’s alarming how early we’re pushing the idea that young girls shouldn’t be praised for their beauty, if they want to be praised for it. Why can’t we do both? Call a girl pretty (and a boy handsome) and praise her (and him) for their accomplishments? And if a girl longs for praise for either her looks, her accomplishment, or both, where’s the harm? Isn’t telling girls they shouldn’t want to be pretty eliminating their right to choose? Shouldn’t a young girl be allowed to be a princess if that’s how she wants to play?
Let’s stop the war on girls who want to embrace girly things. While we’re also stopping the war on boys for doing boyish things. Can we find common ground there?
