McDonald’s Sucks Up For International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day. Apparently, every year March 8th is International Women’s Day. According to TimeAndDate.com:

International Women’s Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace.

and-

The UN drew global attention to women’s concerns in 1975 by calling for an International Women’s Year. It also convened the first conference on women in Mexico City that year. The UN General Assembly then invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace in 1977. The day aimed to help nations worldwide eliminate discrimination against women. It also focused on helping women gain full and equal participation in global development. International Men’s Day is also celebrated on November 19 each year.

I am so happy that men get a day too. Aren’t you?

McDonald’s has traditionally shown support for Black History Month by focusing on, naturally, black history and contributions by important African-American persons. And, really other than marginally celebrating Christmas, by staying open, and the Fourth of July, McDonald’s doesn’t generally virtue signal.

Guess what McDonald’s is doing for International Women’s Day 2018? They are flipping the Golden Arches (Trademark, All Rights Reserved) upside down. Like this:

Ah, isn’t that sweet. McDonald’s Twitter Page Cover

Behold this explanatory video from CBS News:

If you read the captions, the C-Suite that the “Chief Diversity Officer” was talking about means everyone at the top whose title starts with “C”. You know, the Chief Marketing Officer, the Chief Information Officer, the Chief Financial Officer and so on.

Nowadays, it’s not just enough to make crispy fries that the masses are clamoring for. It’s not just enough to make a Filet-O-Fish sandwich that will heal the lame. It’s not just enough for McDonald’s to make that deliciously minty Shamrock Shake. Let the foodies and Nutrition Nazis shake their heads and tsk tsk at me. I love McDonald’s. Isn’t it enough that the Breakfast Burrito is filling and nutritious? Isn’t it enough that a McGriddle Sandwich makes the angels sigh after one has had one’s first colonoscopy? No. McDonald’s must suck up and virtue signal in order to show what great corporate citizens they and their franchisees are. Bah!

So, McDonald’s flipped their Golden Arches at one California franchise and bought special uniforms in one hundred stores to show how they support women. Their online presence is covered with large and small flipped arches of every size. Because not everyone likes large arches. Some prefer small arches.

Social media noticed something that all the geniuses in McDonald’s marketing didn’t notice.

Flipped Golden Arches look like saggy boobs. You see it now, right?

Our friends at Twitchy captured a few thoughts:

Oh, dear. Those darned unintended consequences.

Nothing sucks up to women and shows support of women like a big ol’ pair of saggy boobs. Way to go, McDonald’s. Could you forget International Women’s Day and just keep making the delicious fruit pies? Thank you.

    I’m not sure I want to eat anything prepared by an organization that is so clueless.

  • MikeyParks says:

    I’m fine with women being women – as long as they don’t insist that men be women too.

  • CaptDMO says:

    This just in.
    In celebration of International Women’s day, Taco Bell offering limited edition pink taco.
    (no, not really)
    And recognizing that it’s International Women’s Day, and that the word for adult female isn’t universally “Woman”, yes, it must be boobs.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
    Can’t wait for Wattaburger to invert their “W” for men’s day.

    • Toni Williams says:

      Captain – I don’t want Whataburger virtue signaling. I love them just the way they are.

      • GWB says:

        But wouldn’t that be funny? They could do something like “Every man gets a Whataburger half-off today! And, because we know that our men love women, they get one half-off, too!”

        And, when they doctored their social media pics (which is mostly what McD’s did) they should turn the whole sign upside down, not just the W.

        (Of course, since there IS no “International Man’s Day”, this won’t happen anyway. But I think it would be fun.)

  • CaptDMO says:

    November 19th I think

    “I am so happy that men get a day too. Aren’t you?”

    That’s sarcasm right? Didn’t the SJW’s tell you that every day is men’s day?

    They forgot the ones before 1975:
    The Socialist Party of America held the first Women’s Day demonstration in New York on February 28, 1909, at the urging of Socialist Party leader Theresa Serber Malkiel. The International Socialist Women’s Conference expanded the observance the following August to inaugurate the general meeting of the Socialist Second International. German socialist Luise Zietz, alongside communists Clara Zetkin and Kate Duncker, established the event as an annual Women’s Day, moving the date to March for the following year.

    By 1917, Russian communists joined the festivities, which elevated International Women’s Day from a leftist eccentricity to the inciting event for the destruction of the twentieth century. On March 8, women textile workers launched a demonstration for “bread and peace” in the Russian capital of Petrograd. The agitated ladies demanded no less than the overthrow of the Russian constitutional monarchy, kicking off the Russian Revolution.

    I like Stilton Jarlsberg’s take on the issue:

    The inverted arches does look like a women laying on her back with her legs in the air. Not all that empowering, depending on your power of view.
