Ah, the female wave “conquering” American politics is indomitable isn’t it?
Shrieking, overconfident aggression, histrionics, virtue signaling of every sort. The women are in town. A lot of socially indignant self-righteousness abounds. As if the ascendant female paradigm in American politics will make a difference.
Keep on dreamin’, girls.
I suspect we are trading in the devil we know for the witches we might.
And the feel-good, smug symbolism, the signaling, so abundant; our society, thanks to women, is engorged with virtuous platitudes of every stripe, color and gender self-definition.
For instance, Jennifer Wexton’s contribution reads like yet another tired diatribe of the most modern motif.
Newly elected Rep. Jennifer Wexton, D-Va., started her term with a statement of transgender equality by hanging the trans pride flag outside her office in Washington.
Abby Carter, Wexton’s chief of staff, confirmed that Wexton — the aunt to a transgender child — hung the flag to make a statement about trans inclusion.
“This is personal for me. We’re talking about my family and friends,” Wexton said in a statement to NBC News. “I want everyone in the trans community to know that they are welcome and loved even in the face of this administration and its attacks on who they are.”
“I didn’t think putting it up would be a big deal, but I’ve received a huge outpouring of support and appreciation from the LGBT community in the past two days,” Wexton added. “We’ve been receiving messages from across the country and they’ve been telling me how much it means to them to see that in the halls of Congress.”
Blah, blah, and blah.
The litany of good will is tiresome and reeks of bullshit. Who cares about the transgendered and the homo’s? I sure as hell don’t. I’m not a moralist…in fact, I’m an atheist. Still, I’m sick of listening to fringe members of our population insist on equal time in the collective cultural dialogue when in fact they deserve 5% or 10%, at the most. They surely do not deserve to be heard incessantly, their demands mean little, and they aren’t entitled to flag representation in the halls of government.
Live your life, shut up, and let us live our own, unencumbered by your rampant deviancy.
