As an outsider, a Canadian and a conservative, it's been interesting to watch the snake of feminism eat its own tale in the race to be the democratic nominee for the presidency of the United States.
Hillary Clinton lost the New Hampshire Democratic Primary to avowed socialist and Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders. Senator Sanders beat the machinery of the Clinton campaign and really, the entire Democrat establishment with 60% of the democratic vote.
It's been fun to watch the Democrat party, that party that claims to be the party of diversity, twist itself in knots trying to decide which old white person will be their nominee for president.
It's been fun, as someone who is neither left wing nor feminist, watching left wing feminism dividing on itself into 2 camps. I call them the sugar babies and the angry old bra burners. The millennial sugar babies want the government to pay for everything, like Mom and Dad do. They are Bernie Sanders’ loyalists. The angry old bra burners are middle aged women who refuse to admit their revolution is long over. They are the Hillary faithful.
And through all of this, the glaring hypocrisy of modern feminism reigns supreme. The sugar babies are fighting for free stuff instead of exercising their equal rights to independence by earning their own way. The bra burning old ladies are voting for ovaries while demanding to not be judged for having them. Neither of these groups are talking about real issues, like debt, unemployment and national security.
While these two groups fight their girl power cage match, somewhere in Northern Iraq, a Kurdish woman is taking up arms against ISIS so that her daughters can go to school and vote and drive and wear whatever they want.
