Ah Taylor Swift. The level of restraint I’m exercising in order to not type lyrics from TSwift’s many hit singles, all for the sake of puns, is award-worthy. Applaud me. But seeing as how Tay-tay might be a lost soul, newly baptized in woke culture, I shall skip right to the point: the Netflix documentary “Miss Americana” is just sad. If you haven’t yet watched it, spoiler alert: a whiny feminist whines about a great many points most of us in the real world have understood for years. Here, let Steven Crowder explain in his review:
Third-wave feminism, an offshoot of modern leftism where victim culture thrives, has left many women feeling as if they’re poor, put-upon little ladies just because they’re ladies. As Steven points out, no. Related: War on Women: Here’s How Feminism Just Cheated These Formula One Women Out of Jobs.
The sad thing is, anyone with a modicum of worldly understanding knows reality is quite different than what leftism says it is. Women and men face daily struggles because life is just tough. Women do not have a monopoly on victimhood anymore than leftists have a monopoly on empathy. As such, no amount of leftism, feminism or any other kind of -ism is going to make Taylor — or anyone else — happy.
Except maybe a hottie boyfriend with six-pack abs. I’m just saying. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
