One of my fellow FaceBookers, Miss Ellen, found this little gem for me in FitsNews. It’s a perfect response to the immature pouting and scowling demonstrated by the leftists dressed in white last night. (Apropos of nothing whatsoever, what other radical group used to dress all in white and scowl at other folks who weren’t like them?)
State Representative Nancy Mace, Republican from the great state of South Carolina penned an excellent article regarding those shenanigans. From the article:
“I’m a mom, a businesswoman and a state legislator serving South Carolina. At a young age, I was determined to forge my own path through life. And nearly 20 years ago I became the first female graduate of The Citadel after following in my father’s footsteps. I also have experience starting my own business and in 2017 ran for – and won – a seat in the state legislature, on my own terms.
As women we make a fundamental mistake when we make our identity as women the WHOLE story.
The point of breaking glass ceilings is so that, after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore. The American experiment is built on the premise that if you set a goal, show up on time and work hard, then success is within reach. We can ALL achieve the American dream regardless of our gender.
The identity politics being overplayed by liberal women in Washington, on display last night during the president’s State of the Union last night, further sets women back rather than advancing our futures. Acting like we just earned the right to vote and are held back strictly because of our gender is an enormous disservice to women everywhere.”
It would be worth your while to read the entire article. Time definitely well spent.
Late Edit: When I asked Miss Ellen If I could credit her with turning me on to this article, she responded, “Absolutely and you can notate that the article represents my kind of American, my kind of feminism too!”
