Waning pussy power.

Last January the symbol most closely associated with the Women’s March was a pink knit hat with ears, called the “pussy power hat”. The headline at Time’s Motto announced:  Women Will Wear Pink ‘Pussy Power Hats’ to March on Washington.  The headline at Women in the world read: Women knit thousands of ‘pussy power hats’ to support the Women’s March on Washington  As Huffington Post explained:

Hundreds of thousands of protestors are expected to flood Washington D.C. on January 21, 2017 to take part in the Women’s March on Washington, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration.

And thanks to a knitting project that has gone viral, thousands of them will be wearing bright pink and cat-eared “pussy power hats.”

Other feminists felt that this was too subtle, and elected to dress as giant vaginas.

Over the last year feminists seem to have reconsidered the wisdom of so openly stating their case for power.  The original term pussy power hats seems to have disappeared in favor of the more subtle pussy hat, although you can still find it in news articles from last year and on archives of the pussy hat website.

But the news is even worse for the pussy power hat.  Not only is it being stripped of its power, but it has now been deemed politically incorrect.  As the Washington Times explains:

Women’s March organizers are moving away from the iconic “pussyhat” because it may be offensive to trans women who don’t have female genitalia.

She said several state and national organizations have tried “to move away from the pussyhats for several months now” and are not using the hats in promotions because there are “a few things wrong with the message.”

“It doesn’t sit well with a group of people that feel that the pink pussyhats are either vulgar, or they are upset that they might not include trans women or nonbinary women or maybe women whose [genitals] are not pink,” Ms. Hopps said.

I suspect an even bigger problem with the messaging is that the women trying to capitalize on the power of the pussy are making the very image seem ugly, not to mention downright frigid.

    And that’s how easy it is to defeat them…have an even bigger victimhood group be offended by their antics.

    ^ I laughed for a full ten minutes after reading this. And they have the nerve to call our great president crazy. We know who the crazy ones are and it is not us nor our president. It is them. They are the crazies.

    That’s what happened after the Pulse nightclub mass shooting….the gays found out, to their shock and dismay, that Muzzies outrank them in the pozzie-victim taxonomy.

    It was once said, I think, by Ronald Reagan, that the Communist system wasn’t sustainable and would collapse under the weight of its’ own dysfunctionality.
    History proves him right regarding political Marxism.
    From the looks of it, so too goes Cultural Marxism.
    Sit back, relax and watch, gentlemen. It will tie itself into knots of convolution, much like The Creature in Sci Fi, before dying a horrible death

    They’re victims searching for an oppressor.

    “Wild thought: We may be seeing Darwinian regression. The intellectual nanoparticles waving placards, the sobbing talking headesses  may represent the return of the procaryote IQ. They give us a living paleontological record of what life looked like before it evolved. Think “Cambrian Implosion.” I imagine Rachel Maddow with twelve body segments and compound eyes.”

    The marchers last year left a huge mess for the taxpayers of D.C. to clean up. There was another march a few weeks later which V.P. Pence spoke at and there was no garbage. Of course the lefty media didn’t give it hardly (if any) mention. Wonder how the march will work out if someone runs in the middle of it a screams Aloha Snackbar!

    I would call them ass hats, which was a popular insults from leftists some years ago.

  17. One interesting aspect of Trump’s Media Strategy is that it’s accelerated all of the rest of the media cycles. Pre-2016, Media cycles went about 3-4 days. If they got their hooks into something, they could drag something out for months.

    Now? If you’re away from the news for 3 days you’ve missed 7 news cycles and 10 memes. This matters because the Cultural Left gets their “orders” from the propaganda organizations that call themselves “News”. What we’re seeing is that they’re rolling through so many news cycles, at such a pace, that they’re rapidly increasing the speed at which they’re trying to shift the culture in the Marxo-Feminist direction.

    This has moved the speed at which they’re trying to normalize every evil to weeks rather than years. This issue with the hats is a just a very notable version of what is happening. We’re seeing a speed of attempt at moving the culture that just isn’t possible. It’s not actually been a full year since that event, yet what was supposedly a Feminist Signal is now anti-Social Justice.

    Think about that. Less than a year. If symbols have no staying power and if lines of Acceptable in a culture are moving that quickly, their entire movement will shatter fairly quickly. This is a fascinating thing to watch play out. By 2020, no one will know what is actually acceptable among the Cultural Marxist set. We’ve entered a Virtue Signaling Spiral so rapid that the suicides should start getting more notable soon.

    You know, for a group of persons that claim all men do in their spare time is look at porn and talk about bewbs, their fixation with genitals and breasts is astounding.

    Feminists – and Western women in general – are realizing that that’s all they have to offer. That’s why so many of them are panicking over sexbots.

    And I say let the Feminists and trannies duke it out like Thunderdome – although hopefully no one leaves.

  20. Front page of cbc on the horrors of having a fifth child

    http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/opinion/chip-joanna-gains-pregnancy-1.4481165

    “But we don’t often hear arguments for alternatives to motherhood. Women need to be presented with options for a fulfilling life that don’t involve taking 20 years of their lives to care for offspring. Changing the narrative around motherhood should help to offset some of the cultural conditioning we receive throughout our lives.”

    “Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision. So when people do irresponsible things like having five children, we absolutely need to be calling them out.

    And if the birth rate in Canada declines, so what? As old You-Know-Who cuts off aid to not-for-profits that educate on abortion, restricts immigration and stops sending money to countries that need it, we will have a steady supply of smart and talented immigrants. Their loss, our gain.

    Anyway, here’s wishing Chip and Joanna the best!”

    This was inevitable — the fashion industry is pushing skirts for men: https://nypost.com/2018/01/12/are-skirts-the-next-mens-fashion-trend/

    “In an era during which rules seem meant to be broken — and more and more people are calling for gender equality — it should surprise no one that the fashion world is the head cheerleader for change. Case in point: the Fall 2018 Menswear designers presenting a variety of skirts on their runways.”

    Too bad Kristen Pyszczyk’s mother didn’t make a good choice for the planet and abort Kristen at 39 weeks 6 days.

  23. If those are “pussyhats” aren’t their heads penetrating them?

    I guess all that talk of women getting college degrees and careers was just a figment of our imaginations.

    I hardly ever hear motherhood as an alternative to going through the college/career meatgrinder.

    Contest. First one to see some guy wearing his skirt into a church sing out. No fair claiming a Kilt wearing True Scotsman.

    Our sympathy.

  29. Lumpen dyke-ish creatures who hate men, loathe children and want to have sex with women even more than men do, doubling down on the inanity? Yes, please. And double down some more.

    (genitals and breasts)

    “Feminists – and Western women in general – are realizing that that’s all they have to offer. That’s why so many of them are panicking over sexbots.”

    That line of reasoning has way too much…reason. Women aren’t realizing anything about themselves at all. They’ll just blame away.

    They’re not panicking over sexbots as much as they’re instinctively hating the fact that men are leaving the plantation. They hate the fact that men are finding something that can make them happy, even in a small, pitiful, surreal dose. It’s more joy than women can feel though, and that’s why it enrages them.

    I think it’s the men who are realizing that genitals and breasts are all that women have to offer. The romantic idealization of women and their benevolence, instinct, morality etc was just our own projection. They’re down to genitals and breasts and even then it’s a small percentage of otherworldly youngsters that have that to offer anyway. I’m speaking as a middle-aged man. A twenty something’s gonna twenty something anyway.

    Gawd, no, NOOO! Find a gym, you chicken-legged soyboy fags! You shame your sex chromosome! Only real men get to dress like that and they’re kilts, not skirts!

    The trans and feminist war is hilarious.

  33. Lovekraft says:

    The middle-class women’s voting block is crucial for any future election it would be wise to observe the various ways this demographic is being cooed. There are the hard-left feminists/cultural marxists who use shaming, lies and control (backed by media, academia, courts, gov’t) but will this be enough?

    I believe the veil has lifted and many sensible women are repulsed by their so-called movement’s leaders (Ashley Judd, Beyonce, Madonna etc) and realize these people are not going to provide any long-term stability.

    What we have to be on the alert for are ways the left will falsely portray the right (whatever you define it as is fine) as being anti-women, pro-control etc, or out to take women’s economic perks away. The left won’t attempt to provide an alternative economic structure for these women, just more redistribution, expanding government, appeals to groupthink.
