Mark Steyn on how the pussyhat became a symbol of oppression

From Mark Steyn:

Unfortunately, the Women’s March in Pensacola is having no truck with celebrating divulvaversity, as they explained in a post helpfully labelled…

Trigger Warning and Content Warning for comments: Transphobia, Cissexism, Racism, mention of Sexual Assault, Genital Mutilation, Misogyny and Trans-Misogyny.

They’re not kidding:

The Pink P*ssy Hat reinforces the notion that woman = vagina and vagina = woman, and both of these are incorrect.

Exactly. These days it’s entirely random. You never know what you’re getting into. As I noted a couple of years back, since the two sexes became multiple genders, and “transsexuals” became “transgenders”, and “sex change” became “gender fluidity, some 60 per cent of transgender persons now retain their original genitalia. For example, my compatriot Gabrielle Tremblay won a Canadian Screen Award for Best Supporting Actress for a film in which she showed her penis.More.

Reality check: But how swiftly! Less than a year ago, the pussyhat was big Big BIG. The left eats its own, as so often in the past. But today, it gulps its own without even tasting them. Getting involved with leftism isn’t so much like getting fattened for slaughter now as like rushing madly over a cliff.
