‘Girls will be boys and boys will be girls .It’s a mixed-up, jumbled up shook up world” The Kinks in Lola-1968,
When the Kinks wrote that song in1968 about a guy who meets a transvestite in a bar little did they know what the world would be today. The words still ring more true today than then and the world is truly a mixed-up,jumbled up,shook up world.
Recently a Mother said she wants to be a father and her son said he wants to be her daughter. Parents want their sons to be daughters and daughters to be sons. People are changing their sexes. It’s crazy alright.
When women on the women’s march wore what they called pussy hats it was to represent women power and an attack on Trump’s comment 11 years ago about grabbing a woman’s private part. It was supposed to be them striking back. Now the transgender crowd is attacking them saying they are now oppressed because wearing a pussy hat means equating womenhood with having a vagina.
The author of the 790-word jeremiad, Taylor Griggs, trains her invective on “‘free the nipple’ campaigns” and, especially, the perky, neon-pink-yarn “pussy power hats” with which many participants in the January Women’s March on Washington festooned themselves.
Griggs quotes Marie Solis in Mic for the proposition that signs at the Women’s March reading “Pussy power” and “Pussy grabs back” deliver “a clear and oppressive message to trans women.” That oppressive message is: “having a vagina is essential to womanhood.”
Solis goes on to quote a transgender woman who was offended by feminists holding “signs that equate womanhood with having a vagina” — and even more offended by a subset of feminists who point out that “trans women are actually men in disguise trying to infiltrate their spaces.” ‘Pussy Hats’ Oppress Transgender People Now | The Daily Caller It’s fun to watch the left turn on itself.
Now feminists have taken to wearing hijabs in solidarity with their Muslim “sisters” saying they are all one when we share diversity. USA Today recently ran an article on this with a picture of Hillary wearing a hijab when she was in a Mid-East country
The USA Today article makes two points about an alleged increasing willingness of young, Western Muslim women to don hijabs which they may have previously shirked because of ties to oppressive religious themes.
First, the article says, the hijab is experiencing a re-birth as a symbol of resistance to President Donald Trump’s hardline policies involving travelers to the U.S. from heavily Muslim nations. Those policies, combined with some of Trump’s previous statements, have been used as proof that the current administration has deeply rooted Islamaphobic ideals.
The article then relays that the hijab is ripe for use as a symbol of empowerment in Western culture because no one in the U.S. is forcing women to wear the head coverings.
From the piece:
Since the election of President Donald Trump, the debate around Islamic dress has taken a new turn: The hijab has emerged as a symbol of resistance to Islamophobia amid policies from the Trump administration targeting Muslim immigrants.
Scores of non-Muslims have donned hijabs to express solidarity with Muslim women, too, though some criticized the move, arguing that the garment represents oppression of womenYoung Muslims like Sameeha disagree.
“I do believe hijab support feminism,” she said outside the Muslim prayer center at her school’s College Park campus. “The way you look at it from a religious perspective, it empowers you by strengthening your relationship with God. It’s a step you are taking to further yourself within your own religion.”
“No one forced me to dress this way,” she added. No Joke: Because Trump, hijabs are ‘feminist’ – Personal Liberty®
I think that the women who are trying to pass off the hijab as a sign of protest for women’s rights should think about the girls that were forced back into a burning building because they did not have a hijab on. If I am not mistaken a true hijab covers not just the head but the face as well except for the eyes.
Tuesday, singer Alicia Keys – who performed at the 2016 Democratic National Convention – posted a tweet about diversity saying in diversity we see ourselves with a picture of a woman in a complete body covered Muslim garb.
This is just the sort of empty-headed virtue signaling you’d expect from a member of the political far-left who obviously knows nothing about the way radical Islam treats women. It’s the idiocy of modern feminism in action. It’s one thing to defend the hijab, the Islamic head-covering that virtually all religious Muslim women wear. It’s another to defend the niqab, the face-covering into which many religious Muslim countries force women.
Here’s the fact: in the countries in which women typically wear the niqab, like Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iran, a woman who exposed her leg the way the woman does in the photo would be criminally prosecuted. In Sudan in 2015, nine women were flogged for wearing pants. In Indonesia last year, a Muslim woman was flogged for standing in close proximity to her boyfriend. A few months ago, Saudi Arabia arrested a woman for taking a photograph without her abaya. Alicia Keys Posts This Incredibly Stupid Tweet, Then Deletes It | Daily Wire . See picture here.
Women have had acid thrown in their faces for not wearing a hijab or not having their head and face covered. Some Muslim women in this country have spoken out against these feminist using the hijab to protest Trump as exploiting them and their culture.
Yes the hypocrisy of the libs knows no bounds. Recently Bill O’Reilly made a comment on his show saying he was distracted by Maxine Water’s James Brown like wig so he didn’t catch what she said about Trump .Well that drew the Ire of Maxine and her followers calling for Bill to be fired so Bill caved and apologized also being a gentleman. Meanwhile Maxine has a history of making nasty comments about Trump and conservatives none of which have seen apologies. “I oppose this president. I do not honor this president. I do not respect this president,” Waters said during her speech Tuesday in which she bashed President Donald Trump. “And my mission and my goal is to make sure that he does not remain president of the United States of America,” she continued. Hypocrite Dems Call For O’Reilly Firing Over Maxine Waters Hair Comments But S
She also said democrats are more patriotic than republicans. She is so mean in her comments to Trump and republicans that she is the one who should be impeached.
Yes the left says you can’t mock Maxine’s wig but you can compare trumps kids, Ivanka and Jared Kusner working for him, to Saddam’s kids like Chris Mathews did on MSNBC last week.
Thousands of unhinged libs signed a petition saying Melania should move out of Trump Tower and move into the white house or pay for her own security. They can’t wait another three months for Barron to finish school. She is moving into the white house when he finishes and they are painting her office for her and she goes there on week-ends. But these same unhinged libs didn’t complain about taxpayers money when Michelle Obama and her 20 person entourage went all over the world with her and when we paid for security for her mother who lived with them and their super expensive multi-million dollar vacations at Martha’s Vineyard.
Yes as the Kinks once sang, it sure is a “missed up, jumbled up shook up world.”
