A self-described feminist, Joan Walsh, accidentally told the truth on MSNBC Wednesday... and it was as horrible as you might imagine the inner workings of a liberal mind are. She criticized Ivanka Trump’s outfit during the G20 summit, saying she believed the male members of the Trump administration should've walked out after realizing that a woman was in the place of honor instead of them.
You read that correctly. If you ever need proof that feminism is not about women at all, prepare to be amazed at the neatly packaged segment Walsh provided that shows much that's wrong with feminism. You might want to pop some corn.
Viewers could tell that she knew she was saying ridiculous stuff, but she plunged ahead anyway:
The fact that she sat in for her father, in a dress that was so incredibly ornamental was such a contradiction in terms. In patriarchal, authoritarian societies, daughters have great value. They're property. And the message that she is sending about her own value, about her place in the White House, and the place of women in this administration are pretty frightening.
It's a pink dress with big bows on the elbows. That’s not a dress that’s made for work, that's not a dress that made to go out in the world and make a difference. That is a dress that is designed to show off your girliness.
You know feminism has lost if one of its main advocates gets on television, complains that a woman has a position of prominence, and then believes it's her job to dole out fashion advice. As Kimberlee Kay wrote, "feminism is the new sexism."
