And Kamala? Nothing to say?
"On social media, women have expressed relief at the end of the Trump era. The Canadians also posted pictures of Kamala Harris and Jill Biden in clothes that represent progress. No true feminist would wear a black suit and red tie, after all. What America needs now are those jewel tones.
I can't understand what trauma we suffered from seeing an egomaniac tweet himself in Internet prison ... If anything, it offered us the cue for four years of dedicated progressive posts. Now what's next?
In any case, I am glad that all this division and polarisation is finally over. Both Canadians and Americans will have to come together to find something new to distract themselves with. Maybe this time it will be the mass surveillance and the end of free speech? Wait, no, I have a good one: the end of women's sport and gender-based protection?
The first thing US President Joe Biden did the day after his inauguration was to sign 15 executive orders including rejoining the Paris climate agreement and reversing a policy that blocks US funding for programmes abroad if they are linked to abortion. Not bad. He also enacted the obligation to maskerine throughout the federal territory, as well as on buses, planes and trains.
But the brave 100-day mask challenge (oh funny! It's like a game!) was not the only decision that allowed us to breathe a sigh of relief. Biden also signed a executive order to implement certain aspects of the Equality Act , il that sounds like a great thing, unless you are a woman hoping for equality under the law in 2021. Sorry, Karen. Equality is not for you. Put your mask back on.
The ordinance ensures that "federal statutes concerning sex discrimination prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity"and bypasses the tedious legislative process normally required to pass a law
But hey, we're talking about equality, boys. And who would ever vote against it! As far as I know, democracy only means that other people can decide what is good for you. Those who vote against things that are not 'good' are fascists.
Lest we be fooled into believing that an 'equality act' could be at least partly about combating sex discrimination, given that women make up half the population that has spent the last 100 years fighting for equal rights under the law, we are reminded that our status as a 'woman' is only important if you are the kind of woman who is a man.
LEquality Act of the origins, introduced in 1974 from Bella Abzug, actually sought to ban discrimination on the basis of sex (as well as sexual orientation and marital status), but as we all now know, thanks to Twitter fact-checkers, human beings have gone far beyond sex. Today we are a mass of amorphous 'them' (thes) whose rights are determined by the type of porn we prefer.
L' Equality Act of 1974 did not become law and was reintroduced in various forms over the years until today, when equality is still necessary, but not for chicks.
Today, the important thing to ensure equality is that mediocre male athletes are allowed to compete against girls and women so that they do not have to live with their male mediocrity. As such this 'Equality Act' guarantees that individuals cannot be discriminated against on the basis of their 'gender identity'. Which sounds good, because no one should be discriminated against: but in this case We use the term 'discrimination' to defend the right of men to claim to be women and to be treated as such.
You might ask yourself why men would want to be treated as 'women'. Well: to begin with, to have the guarantee that they will not be denied theaccess to abortion should they become hallucinatingly pregnant. But there are also other good reasons. One of which is that if these men found themselves accused of sexual violence they could avoid being locked up in prison with a bunch of violent guys. Right. Nobody wants that. The problem is that, as 'women', these men now have the right to be incarcerated in women's facilities, which means that female prisoners will be subjected to that male violence that nobody wants to deal with. Seems unfair, doesn't it? Too bad, Karen! This is equality!
What is really important in this act of equality, however, is create a playing field at the level of males who are not good enough athletes to compete with other male athletes. È fairer for them to compete against women who, due to their biology, are not as strong or as fast as male athletes. In fact women's bodies are different from men's bodies, but we are no longer allowed to explain howas material reality is not very polite and rudeness kills.
Men now not only can legally access women's facilities - including bathrooms, and changing rooms - but as 'women' they can also win sports competitions, competitions, scholarships and awards previously reserved for girls and women. Recognition they fully deserve, because the hardest thing about being a woman is being a man.
In October Biden has promised which would promulgate the Equality Act during his first 100 days as president. He is a good guy (that's why you voted for him, right?) And good guys keep their promises. So, he kept. None of this was a surprise, and now we can all celebrate this brave new world, relieved of the burden of free thought.
Personally I am relieved that the Americans no longer have a madman as president! Imagine if the leader of your country believed that males could become women by a simple declaration, and then enacted a law about it! LOL!".
