Sweden actually has a 'feminist' snow-plowing system and it's a total failure

What were they thinking?!

Leave it to Sweden, the most pathetic country on the planet, to launch a 'feminist' snow-plowing system. We're not making this up. And as expected, it resulted in a total failure.

Basically, how the system works is, instead of clearing roads in Stockholm, they had snow plows diverted to areas said to be used more by women such as sidewalks and cycle paths. Men, meanwhile, as more likely to drive to work, so apparently they were unfairly benefiting from snow plows.

As Heatst reports, “the inevitable consequence was that other spaces – like main roads – were clogged up for longer, and it became impossible to get around.”

Daniel Helldén, the city’s Green Party transport head told the Expressen newspaper “Gender equal snow-cleaning is not to blame here.” He added, “There is a lack of gender equal snow-clearing now, according to the reports I’m getting. It’s still difficult to walk on the pavements — and it is important that snow-clearing prioritises walkways, public transport and cycle paths.”

Because this system was in place, during the major snowfall last week, buses and trains were cancelled and major motorways blocked.

“It’s obvious that it hasn’t worked, and the question is why,” Helldén asked.

Probably because sidewalks and cycle paths were cleared instead of roads used by large vehicles. Duh.

The result of the feminist policy is even resulting in 1,700 public transit passengers planning to sue. It's hard to believe they actually thought something like this was a good idea.

I’m pretty sure everybody uses the roads. Even if you don’t have a car, all of the supplies you buy is transported by road.

If Vancouver’s Bicycle Mayor Gregor Robinson saw this, he wouldn’t sleep at night until he implemented it. He and his Council banned Doorknobs on new houses. A complete idiot!

Seriously folks but doesn’t the rape capital of Europe have more important things to worry about than something as stupid as feminist snowplowing? And besides, other than the real diehards, how many people ride their bicycles in the winter? If you have to resort to that, then your fuel prices are way too high.

Please do not publish stuff like this. If Trudeau sees this he will want to implement a similar system in every major city, especially when he finds out it doesn’t work.

I’m sure this will impress some of the feminist lefty city councillors in Canada and they’ll be quick to adopt it…
