Gender Traitor: Daytime Confessions
Gender Traitor: Daytime Confessions
The “Gender Traitors” are out in full-force. The left’s temper tantrum is far from over. And yes, they uh, “won’t be silent”:
Especially when it comes to anyone who supports Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Yesterday, Senator Mazie Hirono had this to say about Senator Susan Collins”:
“She said that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, which is even more insulting than saying that she gave a very credible account What is that? Is [Ford] mistaken?”-Mazie Hirono
Hirono insinuated yesterday that Collins’ decision to confirm Justice Kavanaugh was an “insult to survivors“, as the headline was crafted by CNN. Note: She did not say this, the news outlet did. Regardless, we all know Hirono’s stance.
HuffPo called Susan Collins “fraudulent”.
“In the most drama in which she played a critical role, Collins joined two other Republicans in calling for what turned out to be a rigged FBI inquiry. She then voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court ― not with ambivalence but almost giddy enthusiasm.”-Robert Kuttner, Huffington Post
Salon said Democrats did not do nearly enough. They “melted over his white rage”.
Susan Collins “melted” over Kavanaugh’s “white rage”…but journalists and liberal bloggers alike are not just going after women like Senator Collins. They are out for all women who don’t fall in line.
I remember sitting in a “journalism” class with a former “journalist” from The New York Times. She would harken back to the glory days of working there and I thought that class was a snooze fest then. In truth, I was coming into my own, starting to think for myself and these people seemed dull, pseudo-intellectual and boring. If I were sitting in that class now, I would probably need to stifle my laughter or a good, strong cocktail…or perhaps, a combination of both.
This is where the icing on the cake comes in. The New York Times is simply not laughable anymore as some of the “reporting” coming out of its doors has been downright disgusting as of late. Take the latest opinion piece from Alexis Grenell, for example entitled, “White Women, Come Get Your People“.
After a confirmation process where women all but slit their wrists, letting their stories of sexual trauma run like rivers of blood through the Capitol, the Senate still voted to confirm Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. With the exception of Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, all the women in the Republican conference caved, including Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who held out until the bitter end.
Grenell goes off in her epic rant, calling women who believed Justice Kavanaugh to be innocent “gender traitors” (borrowing from The Handmaid’s Tale”). We’ve made standing by the “patriarchy” a full-time job. We “upheld the system of whiteness” in November of 2016. (Last I checked, Hillary Clinton is also as white as they come). We “reproduce whiteness” all while “minimizing violence against our own bodies”.
What do you expect from a paper that proudly defends hiring and keeping a racist like Sarah Jeong? #RacistNYT

But…but…gender is a social construct. Also there are 87 of them.

Like, what is this even supposed to mean? Can someone find me an intellectually honest liberal anywhere willing to admit that some women — white or otherwise — actually support Kavanaugh for reasons other than, I don’t know, *a blood pact with white men*?! pic.twitter.com/ZTp3DREoeR

Racial privilege? Second-class gender status? Like the chants of “shame” coming from the streets of Washington D.C. this past weekend, I must confess. If Grenell’s argument to some rings true, then, according to them, I am a “gender traitor”. I am a white girl, who married a white guy and I have a white kid (the only combination I can see in the picture seeing as we are both, um, WHITE). I am so privileged. I am so down with the patriarchy. I am a little woman of insignificance. And because of this, I sold out my fellow females. Guilty.
You see, what Grenell does not take into account here is that women who are not racist do not see “racial privilege”. Nor do they see their gender as “second class”. It is not because we have been brainwashed or are “oblivious”, as they like to say we are. These women, of which I am a part, don’t cave to the pressures of women who like to be bullies. They likely did not act like or look like everyone else in high school and cave to peer pressure and they are not going to do so now. They don’t capitulate to popular opinion and intimidation tactics. These are free-thinking, American women who love our republic. They are of all racial and socio-economic backgrounds and they refuse to be victims and believe things because somebody tells them to. They do think some women need to grow up, as Lindsey Graham said. And they do fear for the young men in their lives because of the toxicity of new-age feminism. They have no problem calling out men who are pigs. They also have no problem with calling out those of their own gender for bad behavior. We don’t bond with each other because of our “stupid uteruses” nor do we base our political decisions on them. We have NOT made standing by the patriarchy our “full time job” nor have we left our every day lives as wives, sisters, daughters, mothers and friends to protest and whine about how unfair life is. This is NOT us.
Now, step aside, oh ladies of the #Resistance, we’ve got some actual work to do. Don’t worry. We know it’s Monday morning, We’ll work for you while you nurse your rage headache from a weekend’s worth of protesting.
Believe women, they say. Sadly, some of these women are just unbelievable.
