The state of Washington thinks the dictionary is a bit too long and has made efforts to shorten it by eliminating words such as "penmanship" and "freshman" because these words can hurt the feelings of women and, oh my goodness, we can't have that. "Penmanship" will now be called "handwriting" and "freshman" is now "first year student".
What they forgot to do, or maybe they just overlooked it, was ban the word "women" for the very same reason but then they would have to replace it with "toots" or "babes" and that would be sexist. I think they should cut across the grain and invent a new word, perhaps "woshees". I'm open for suggestions.
One sexist writer from Yahoo News doesn't get it though when writing about Texas State Senator Wendy Davis who was successful in filibustering a bill in her state that would make it against the law to abort a pregnancy of a 20 week old fetus (photo above):
Man, that was some good old politics last week! Senator Wendy Davis’s tumbling platinum coif, at a squint, could have been a powdered wig. The hot Davis, filibustering in white before the Texas state legislature, could have been, for all the world, the hot, bewigged Alexander Hamilton, delivering his own flights of semicolonic rhetoric almost exactly 225 years ago, before the New York Ratifying Convention in Poughkeepsie, New York.
Bold face added.
Wendy Davis is the next big thing with Liberals today because she took on conservatives or just men in general and nothing is more important to the distorted thinking and depraved ideological cult of what we mistakenly call "Liberalism".
There seems to be a bit of irony here in all the accolades bestowed upon Davis by her leftist admirers. For instance it really matters what Wendy Davis was wearing during Senate proceedings and they seemed to be enamored by it to the extent that in some corners her fellow travelers want to emulate her clothing as a show of support. This from Jessica Bennett writing in the fashion section of New York Magazine:
Alycia Burton laced hers up this morning with a silk blouse and pencil skirt — then headed to her job at a Forth Worth electrical distributor. Carol Moss, a Utah state representative, snapped a shot of hers propped up on a coffee table. Melissa Pierce, a Chicago entrepreneur, managed to get kicked out of a club in hers — pink sneakers peeking out from a sleek navy cocktail dress.
That is soooo Cute!
Sorry, but if I were a women I would think this as condescending, even the idea that I would be somehow offended by "penmanship" would infuriate me. But the travesty of it all is what Davis is fighting for and that is the right to choose to stick some sadistic instrument into the head of a baby such as the one pictured above in order to suck out its brain.
Yea, this is the banality of evil.
