Celebs with Pussy Hats vs the Young Ladies of the 3rd shift: Advantage Shift 3

Yes that’s what the women of the View appar­ently believe and even more dis­turb­ing their audi­ence is appar­ently excited about it.

These ladies are all well known and their celebrity is such that peo­ple who might nor­mally know bet­ter have embraced this silli­ness as a rea­son to cheer.

I con­trast this to some­thing that hap­pened at work yes­ter­day. I was work­ing with three young women between the ages of 21 and 30 all sin­gle, one mar­ried, another with an 8 year old daugh­ter. The younger two were dis­cussing their future and the older of the three was giv­ing advice and per­spec­tives, that, in my opin­ion, was excel­lent and insight­ful and to her credit far beyond her years and the other were, to their credit, were giv­ing that excel­lent advice the atten­tion it deserved.

There was no stu­dio audi­ence sim­ply me but I was likely just as impressed as the view­ers of the view were of their pussy hats although I was too busy to work to bother to applaud.

Now I should point out that polit­i­cally I’m aware that at least one and maybe all three of these women of these women dis­agree with me, another was impressed by Meryl Streep’s speech and the third isn’t very big on Catholi­cism and I’m a VERY pub­lic catholic.

How­ever despite these facts none of these ladies seem to have embraced the pussy hats of the View or any of the insan­ity that Robert Stacy McCain can demon­strated can be yours for $50,000+ a year tuition nor seem to believe that work­ing a 3rd shift at a ware­house is either beneath them or a sign of oppres­sion. Sim­ply as a means to what­ever end they have, either catch­ing up on bills, sup­port­ing fam­ily or maybe earn­ing the funds for a degree.

You won’t find any of these women on day­time TV talk shows, nor will you find any of them tak­ing a day off to travel to Wash­ing­ton and appear­ing before reporters blam­ing any prob­lems they may have on either Trump or het­ero­nor­ma­tive patri­archy. It is very likely none of you will ever know who they are and I’m cer­tainly not going to repeat any­thing they said yes­ter­day morn­ing as we worked.

How­ever I will say that from my con­ver­sa­tions with them I sus­pect that they will in the long run turn out much bet­ter than those who are pay­ing a fifth of a Mil­lion dol­lars on a woman’s stud­ies degree who wouldn’t be caught dead work­ing with us. Fur­ther­more if I had my choice of any of these three women or any of the young ladies described by Stacy McCain or march­ing with pussy hats on Wash­ing­ton to be intro­duced to me by my sons as a poten­tial future spouse there is no ques­tion which I would pre­fer to see stand­ing there in that situation.

Nor do I have any doubt which set of ladies has a bet­ter future ahead of them.

Update: Turns out the youngest is in fact mar­ried, wasn’t wear­ing her rings yesterday

Yes that’s what the women of the View apparently believe and even more disturbing their audience is apparently excited about it.

These ladies are all well known and their celebrity is such that people who might normally know better have embraced this silliness as a reason to cheer.

I contrast this to something that happened at work yesterday. I was working with three young women between the ages of 21 and 30 all single, one married, another with an 8 year old daughter. The younger two were discussing their future and the older of the three was giving advice and perspectives, that, in my opinion, was excellent and insightful and to her credit far beyond her years and the other were, to their credit, were giving that excellent advice the attention it deserved.

There was no studio audience simply me but I was likely just as impressed as the viewers of the view were of their pussy hats although I was too busy to work to bother to applaud.

Now I should point out that politically I’m aware that at least one and maybe all three of these women of these women disagree with me, another was impressed by Meryl Streep’s speech and the third isn’t very big on Catholicism and I’m a VERY public catholic.

However despite these facts none of these ladies seem to have embraced the pussy hats of the View or any of the insanity that Robert Stacy McCain can demonstrated can be yours for $50,000+ a year tuition nor seem to believe that working a 3rd shift at a warehouse is either beneath them or a sign of oppression. Simply as a means to whatever end they have, either catching up on bills, supporting family or maybe earning the funds for a degree.

You won’t find any of these women on daytime TV talk shows, nor will you find any of them taking a day off to travel to Washington and appearing before reporters blaming any problems they may have on either Trump or heteronormative patriarchy. It is very likely none of you will ever know who they are and I’m certainly not going to repeat anything they said yesterday morning as we worked.

However I will say that from my conversations with them I suspect that they will in the long run turn out much better than those who are paying a fifth of a Million dollars on a woman’s studies degree who wouldn’t be caught dead working with us. Furthermore if I had my choice of any of these three women or any of the young ladies described by Stacy McCain or marching with pussy hats on Washington to be introduced to me by my sons as a potential future spouse there is no question which I would prefer to see standing there in that situation.

Nor do I have any doubt which set of ladies has a better future ahead of them.
