This is not satire; I’m just reporting the news. The following are the first two paragraphs of the President’s official proclamation this morning. I’ve begun to really look forward to these every month. The title indicates that the month is dedicated to “Women’s History,” but in fact, no history is mentioned except to memorialize hypothetical women “not recorded in our history books.” Perhaps ours are Common Core history books. Rather, every sentence of the statement declares the inherent superiority of women to … the alternative. Note especially the second line of the second paragraph:
Did you catch that? Women have “prove[d] they were capable of doing all that a man could do and more,…” So, women are exactly equal to men except that … they’re better. Isn’t that what this says? That’s pretty impressive! We should proclaim all 12 no… 14 months of the year in honor of these superhuman creatures. But I’m only partly kidding. I know lots of women, like my wife, who are superhuman. Though she rarely goes around claiming to be better than every man on the planet. Even Sally Kohn claims that it’s only the white men who are sub-human pigs.
