New York City Marathon marriage proposal deemed “misogynistic” by online mob

It should have been a Kodak moment at the New York City Marathon when Dennis Galvin hopped over the spectator barrier, dropped to one knee, and proposed to his long-time girlfriend Kaitlyn Curran as she approached Mile 16 near the Queensboro Bridge.

Curran received a most welcome surprise as Galvin proposed to her. The New Jersey nurse enthusiastically said yes, and with her ring finger now adorned with a diamond, she bolted off to finish the marathon.

CBS News covered it, and everybody lived happily ever after, right?

Well, no, because even though Curran and Galvin are the only two people with skin in this game, social justice warriors, feminists and all the like-minded took to the internet to vent, claiming Galvin had no right to interfere with Miss Curran’s marathon moment because his stunt added precious seconds to her time.

Apparently, this makes him a misogynist.

A Yahoo article took inventory of all the online outrage, in which commentators called the proposal “selfish” and “thoughtless,” even if the soon-to-be married couple disagreed.

Today, we have entire battalions of SJWs out there who subscribe to the mantra of, “I exist therefore I am offended.”

This brings to mind the ongoing controversy over the Washington Redskins nickname and logo that we’re told must be eradicated out of respect for natives, yet, a 2016 poll commissioned by the Washington Post revealed that 90 per cent of American Indians disagreed.

Whether it’s a surprise marriage proposal or a football team nickname, the underlying message from the SJW set is clear, namely, if you and I and the majority of reasonable people are too damn stupid to know when we’re being offended, well Generation Snowflake will get offended for us.

Thanks, guys. How can we ever cope without you and your moral compasses!

Funny how these NPC’s can stick their nose in everyone else’s business but have a cow if you even have an opinion on such things as abortion that is not aligned with theirs.

I wonder if any of these clowns have considered that maybe , just maybe , he knows her better than they do and knew this would make her happy.

Deborah Graupner yep and the fact that they are joyless NPC’s that hate others having joy and love in their lives.

Being offended on behalf of others is the foundation of the far left.

The Generation of kids who are, right now, becoming of age and entering adulthood, will go down in history as one of the most useless generations ever. All of them showing the efficiency of the Marxist educational system that has skewed their brains.

I wonder if the negative commentators ever get off their asses and actually go outside other than to shop for food (or is it ordered online)? “Precious seconds”, so instead of finishing at, say, 3500th she finished 3501 in the race.

She was happy. He was happy. For a few minutes they thought they had a happy moment to remember until old age, but the fun loving SJW had to destroy that, didn’t they. The antifa/happiness police.

With all the negative comments, are they still getting married, and if so, will there now be a dark cloud over their marriage?

Has anyone seen what these feminists look like???? Yikes………..no wonder none of them have a man in their lives.

Who cares what those bullies think! They are really offended because this couple had a romantic moment, and they didn’t seek the gang’s permission for it.
