Pink Pussy Hats Dropped due to Non Binary Non-White Triggering Fears (Not a Parody)

I’m old enough to remem­ber when see­ing a piece on Pink Pussy Hats being con­sid­ered exclu­sion­ary and offen­sive to left­ists like this was a sign that you were read­ing a par­ody or com­edy site

Not any­more. From The Detroit Free Press

But this time when marchers take to the streets in cities from Lans­ing to Las Vegas, there could be fewer pink pussy­hats in the crowds.

The rea­son: The sen­ti­ment that the pink pussy­hat excludes and is offen­sive to trans­gen­der women and gen­der non­bi­nary peo­ple who don’t have typ­i­cal female gen­i­talia and to women of color because their gen­i­tals are more likely to be brown than pink.

“I per­son­ally won’t wear one because if it hurts even a few people’s feel­ings, then I don’t feel like it’s uni­fy­ing,” said Phoebe Hopps, founder and pres­i­dent of Women’s March Michi­gan and orga­nizer of anniver­sary marches Jan. 21 in Lans­ing and Marquette.

Of course I’m also old enough to remem­ber when a story about thou­sands march­ing in Wash­ing­ton hats resem­bling vagi­nas would have by def­i­n­i­tion been con­sid­ered parody.

The hat was so polit­i­cally cor­rect that it’s sud­denly polit­i­cally incor­rect. Con­grat­u­la­tions pro­gres­sives, you’ve out­done yourselves.

The world is out to prove my pined tweet correct

I’m old enough to remember when seeing a piece on Pink Pussy Hats being considered exclusionary and offensive to leftists like this was a sign that you were reading a parody or comedy site

Not anymore.  From  The Detroit Free Press

But this time when marchers take to the streets in cities from Lansing to Las Vegas, there could be fewer pink pussyhats in the crowds.  

The reason: The sentiment that the pink pussyhat excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.

“I personally won’t wear one because if it hurts even a few people’s feelings, then I don’t feel like it’s unifying,” said Phoebe Hopps, founder and president of Women’s March Michigan and organizer of anniversary marches Jan. 21 in Lansing and Marquette.

Of course I’m also old enough to remember when a story about thousands marching in Washington hats resembling vaginas would have by definition been considered parody.

The hat was so politically correct that it’s suddenly politically incorrect.  Congratulations progressives, you’ve outdone yourselves.
