I think the fallacy is to think that Women's Liberation meant that men and women would become interchangeable. That has not happened, and most men and women would not want it to happen. - Christina Hoff Sommers

Megan Rapinoe to Model Victoria’s Secret

It is because of moonbattery that we can’t have nice things — or even look at anything nice. Liberal social engineers are so vicious, they would force people to look instead at Megan Rapinoe in her underwear:

Victoria’s Secret has sent its angels packing in a monumental rebranding that replaces the supermodels with a group of seven “women famous for their achievements,” including U.S. soccer star and activist Megan Rapinoe.

Rapinoe is best known for her belligerent lesbianism and extreme left-wing views. The seven or eight people who watch women’s soccer may know her from that. She is not known for her pulchritude. But of course, beauty is an oppressive construct of the sexist patriarchy:

Martin Waters, former head of Victoria’s Secret’s international business and its new CEO as of February, explained to The Times of the company’s rebranding, “When the world was changing, we were too slow to respond. We needed to stop being about what men want and to be about what women want.”

A guy with Waters’ job ought to know that a lot of women want to look attractive. Only those twisted by moonbattery would want to look like a harpy from hell.

Whereas Rapinhoe shrieks about her sexual perversion, former Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima is a devout Catholic who attends Mass every Sunday, does charitable work, opposes abortion, and holds that “Sex is for after marriage.”

To let liberals win the Culture War is to trade Adriana Lima for Megan Rapinoe.

Dem Demands Equity for Crash Test Dummies

You can see why Democrats want to ram through statehood for Washington, DC, even if it means openly contravening the Constitution. What leftist would not want to give more power to officials like DC delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton:

Norton introduced a bill Tuesday that would require car crash test dummies to use both male and female models.

Norton’s interest in dummies is understandable.

“Women have achieved equality on the road when it comes to driving, but when it comes to safety testing to keep them safe on the road, they are nowhere near achieving equality,” Norton said in a statement.

True enough, the typical dummy was modeled off a normal American man in the 1970s, who was 26 pounds lighter than now but still slightly heavier than today’s average woman. Weight is of course distributed differently in men and women. However, these days it is regarded as transphobic to acknowledge biological differences between the sexes. Good thing Norton has intersexual qualifications that make her immune from cancelation.

Crash test dummies are often white, revealing racism as well as sexism.

Eleanor Holmes Norton is encouraged to mitigate both sexism and racism by making her way to Detroit to volunteer her services as a crash test dummy. Even Democrat politicians have the potential to make themselves useful to society.

Liz Wheeler Debunks Gender Pay Gap

A favorite Democrat ruse is to squawk righteously about a gender pay gap, which they promise to repair by micromanaging private employers. It is already illegal to pay women less than men for the same work. To the extent there is a pay gap it is because they do not do the same work. Liz Wheeler has the stats:

However, according to the ideology summed up in Democrats’ favorite word “equity,” it doesn’t matter if men work more hours, take more dangerous or tedious jobs, et cetera. Equity entails everyone being compensated the same regardless of what they have earned.

To impose equity requires a government with absolute control over every corner of society, which explains the appeal for Democrats.

The World’s a Dangerous Place

The apparent murder of Sarah Everard, a 33-year-old London woman, has provided moonbats with a pretext to indulge in sexist bigotry directed at the male gender. Jennifer Helen Jones (aka Baroness Jones) of the Green Party even declared before the House of Lords that there should be a 6 pm curfew for all men.

Countermoonbats are likely to take the tragedy as confirmation that law-abiding citizens must be allowed to defend themselves with firearms or at the very least pepper spray, particularly in a world where law and order are in decline due to liberal policies and general moral decay.

Paul Joseph Watson reports from the UK:

A Metropolitan Police officer has been arrested for Sarah Everard’s murder. This emphasizes that self-defense is a fundamental right that cannot be denied at an individual level, no matter how vehemently progressives oppose the concept of individual rights.

Pepe le Pew Gets Canceled

They came for Dr Seuss. Now they are coming for Pepe le Pew:

The scariest thing about leftist blowhards like Blow is that, having no sense of humor, they lose all critical perspective. Anyone deranged enough to regard Pepe le Pew cartoons as a promotion of rape culture is deranged enough to impose a culture no reasonable person would want to live in.

As noted at Not the Bee,

When you bring an adult’s eye to a cartoon, and all the baggage and damage and neuroses that come with it, you will come away with a perspective that bears no resemblance to how it is perceived by a child.

If progressives had any respect for the innocence of children, they wouldn’t push them to become transsexual. They see children as pawns, whose cluelessness can be exploited to advance the leftist agenda. Ironically, Charles Blow’s employers at the New York Times probably see him the same way.

Former Redskins Drop Cheerleaders

Once you start giving in to the moonbat mob, too much compliance is never enough. The Washington Redskins wimped out and changed their supposedly offensive name to the Washington Football Team, because inclusivity requires the exclusion of references to Indians. Not enough. Now they are getting rid of cheerleaders, no doubt because feminazis consider them sexist. Instead, they will offer an unappealing but politically correct “coed dance squad”:

Petra Pope, the club’s newly hired senior adviser, told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday that the new dance squad looks to become more modern and diverse…

Pope says the dance squad will emphasize “inclusivity.” Presumably whites can still apply though.

The Redskins Football Team was recently in hot water after employees allegedly created videos of calendar shoot outtakes featuring cheerleaders who were not fully clothed. A settlement was paid.

Comments Not the Bee,

Pope also said that the future dance squad will not participate in calendar photo shoots. At least we have that to be grateful for.

If there is still any reason to sit through football games, the NFL will find and eliminate it in the name of woke politics.

Petra Pope promises a “different vibe.”

USA Today: Riot Caused by White Male Supremacy

The Capitol Riot was a catastrophe for the Right, associating it with maniacs in the public mind and providing Big Tech and the Democrat Party with a pretext to crack down on free speech. But it was hard on moonbats too, as USA Today whimpers:

It wasn’t just masculinity, or entitlement, or supremacy. It was all of it that made the Capitol attack possible and often allows us to overlook the quieter attacks on our everyday lives, said Kristen Barber, a sociology professor at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, and editor of the journal Men and Masculinities.

“Watching these images are triggering for people who experience the everyday violence of white male supremacy, whether that’s Black men who are patrolled by white police officers on the street or women who feel threatened by white men in their spaces on a daily basis,” Barber said. “It’s a reminder of the everyday stresses that come with living in a world that’s shaped by white masculinity …”

In contrast, the literally hundreds of Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots that took place over the past year, costing $billions and destroying innumerable lives, were not caused by white male supremacy, which must be why the liberal establishment generously supported them.

Experts say demonstrations of white masculinity have mental health impacts on everyone, but especially women, and can create stress, anxiety and trauma.

Blacks commit rape at a far higher rate than whites. Yet black masculinity is not a problem, because blacks are not required by liberal ideology to be effete Robert Francis O’Rourke types.

Symptoms of having been triggered by white masculinity can be severe. Reports Texas Woman’s University psychology professor Debra Mollen:

“After the riot, one of my former students told me she couldn’t get out of bed. I’ve heard lots of accounts of women I know who have been uncontrollably crying. I’ve read several accounts of people who vomited, they were so upset and distressed by what they were witnessing.”

It is unclear whether any snowflakes were traumatized by the white femininity of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot to death by Capitol Police during the riot.

If all you have is a hammer, every problem is a nail. All some moonbats have is their precious victimhood and their hatred of white men.

Amen and A-Woman

Political correctness has reached the last extreme of absurdity in Congress. Democrat Representative and ordained United Methodist pastor Emanuel Cleaver delivered the opening prayer on Sunday to start the new session. Instead of the traditional “amen,” Cleaver ended it with the more inclusive “amen and a-woman.”

Seeing is believing:

“Amen” is Latin for “so be it.” Gender has nothing to do with it. But if “history” can be deformed into “herstory,” why can’t “amen” become “awoman”? Since moonbattery is a totalitarian ideology, it applies to everything, including all words.

Good thing Cleaver pulled this before today, when new House rules presented by Nancy Pelosi are to be voted on. All gender-specific language has been stripped out, including “man” and “woman.” Because inclusion.

Transsexuals, Lesbians at Each Other’s Throats

The Cultural Marxist alliance is like a wrecking ball: only good for demolition, useless for building anything. Civilization is still partially standing, but already favored identity groups are at each other’s throats, prominently including lesbians and guys who say they are girls.

The Telegraph reports:

Lesbian are facing “extinction” because of the “disproportionate” focus on transgenderism in schools, a controversial campaign group for gay rights has claimed.

The LGB Alliance, which has been branded a “trans hate group” by Pink News and other vocal critics, was set up in October 2019 amid concerns that Stonewall, the UK’s leading gay rights charity, had become too fixated on gender identity.

Its founders, Kate Harris and Bev Jackson, claim to have been “cancelled” for questioning gender identity theory and airing their concerns about the erosion of women’s rights in the face of the transgender movement.

According to transgender militants, there is no concrete difference between men and women. You are whichever you say you are, or rather, you are wherever you say you are on an imaginary spectrum between them.

This dogma renders the term “lesbian” virtually meaningless, as it does the term “female.” Feminist who resist being redefined out of existence are denounced as TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists).

LGB Alliance’s Just Giving and Go Fund Me pages were taken down after homosexual Scottish National Party Member of Parliament John Nicolson proclaimed it to be “transphobic.”

So far, the more aggressive transsexuals have the whip hand, characteristically demanding obeisance and canceling those who refuse to kneel. But some feminists are pushing back. If this breaks into a shooting war, we should arm both sides.

Moonbattery Applied to American Womanhood

Maybe we should have gone out in a blaze of glory by having a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. At least it would have been over with quickly, and it would have spared us the degradation of watching moonbattery rot our country to death.

Behold American womanhood under the influence of moonbattery. Sorry about the characteristic obscenity:
