New Leftist Grievance: Adele's Hit 'Hello.' Yes, Really...
Unless you live under a rock with no access to a radio or a music streaming serivce, you've heard of Adele and heard her newest single "Hello." YouTube won't let us embed the song but if you actually haven't heard it, listen here.
It's a great song and she's a great talent. Lot's of people like Adele. Also, sorry if that song is stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Don't be angry and set fire to the rain. Just roll in the deep of your subconscious to pull out another song. Rumor has it there are tons of great songs out there. Someone like you can think of a solution.
So of course Rule 69 applies...if there's something Americans like, there are liberals somewhere who to want to ruin it. Behold, people with too much time on their hands and a shortness of brains:
The University of Oklahoma’s Gender + Equality Center says Adele’s song “Hello” helps “normalize sexual harassment." In a series of posters distributed on the university's campus, the group cites the hit single's verse: "I must have called a thousand times."
Kathy Moxley, Director of the Gender + Equality Center, explained the song was chosen in order to direct the attention of students during “Stalking Awareness Month” to an issue they may have otherwise ignored.
“To begin a much needed conversation about harassment on college campuses, the University of Oklahoma Gender + Equality Center used popular songs that students listen to, to attract students’ attention and to bring awareness to subtle messages in popular song lyrics," Moxley told FOX411. "The music examples were used to demonstrate how aspects of popular media could be interpreted to normalize unhealthy relationship behaviors."
I mean, as far as ridiculous SJW outrage goes, I wouldn't put this at the top of the list. It's not at the level of white guilt month, or these fliers.
But seriously? Adele? ADELE? The singer, song-writer, smash hit, grammy-winning, badass woman of the MUSIC WORLD has been attacked by SJW morons for promoting stalking?
This is the end. Hold your breath and count to ten. Feel the earth move and then, hear my heart burst again.
Okay, so before I lay into these idiots about figures of speech, let's hold a brief moment of silence for these amoebas who are so out of ideas, they've had to pick on Adele, who should actually be lauded by women for her sheer talent, success, and body positivity, not dragged down into the feminist weeds of desperate insanity. Isn't that what feminists rail on about all the time? Women rocking the world with their awesomeness?
"I must have called a thousand times," the line they take issue with, is hyperbole. That's fancy talk for "exaggeration." It's a figure of speech, yo. It's like me saying "It's a million degrees outside," when it's hot or "I could eat an entire cow," when I'm hungry. Got it?
Also, SJWs, European women are being more than stalked by Muslim migrants. They're being raped. Maybe you can lay off Adele and, like, fight for the women with actual problems. Just an idea.
