Women in 'Pussy Power Hats' to March on Washington After Inauguration

Liberalism is a mental illness.

Donald Trump isn't even in the White House yet and progressive lunacy is already off the charts. The latest example is a Women's March on Washington planned for January 21, the day after Trump’s inauguration. The march isn't the crazy part, which is that there are plans for a large number of those women to be adorned with pink, knitted, “pussy power hats,” according to the Daily Caller.

The organizers of the Pussyhat Project -- yes, the Pussyhat Project -- hope to make “a powerful visual statement” at the Women’s March with home-knitted caps that feature "cute" little cat ears. That statement has something to do with Trump’s notorious “grab them by the pussy” comment.

“If everyone at the march wears a pink hat, the crowd will be a sea of pink, showing that we stand together, united,” a mission statement on the Pussyhat Project website explains. “Pink is considered a very female color representing caring, compassion, and love — all qualities that have been derided as weak but are actually STRONG. Wearing pink together is a powerful statement that we are unapologetically feminine and we unapologetically stand for women’s rights.”

It's unclear which women's rights are going to be rolled back by Trump and his fascist regime, who haven't yet announced any gender-specific policies, but that hasn't stopped the left from fear-mongering about it: “The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us — immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault — and our communities are hurting and scared,” the organizers of the Women's March say.

“At its core, this project is about creating a form of representation for those who cannot be there, developing connections between people who care about women’s rights, and creating a framework for community and personal agency from the local to the national level,” the organizers say. It's also about completely undermining the seriousness of your message by making yourself look like a clown.

As the Daily Caller reports, one organizer on the group's blog writes, “In my personal experience, wearing my pussyhat around town has led to countless conversations.” They “usually begin with, ‘Whoa, nice hat! I love it!’ It gives me an opportunity to connect with the hat-admirer on topics concerning women’s rights and delightful fashion.” Sounds like someone needs to get a life.

For those inspired to participate in this anti-fascist fashion statement, the video above demonstrates how you, too, can make a pink pussy hat and spark social justice conversations around town.
