Feminism Has Weakened Women

Here’s a joke:

“Every girl is bi. You just have to figure out if it’s polar or sexual.”

This joke was retweeted last week by Dave Weigel, a Washington Post reporter.

He retweeted it because he thought it was funny.

He thought it was funny because it is.

But, of course, unless a joke is at the expense of straight, white males, such humor is banned by the Left.

A real brouhaha at the newspaper started when a colleague of Weigel’s, Felicia Sonmez, complained that the tweet was misogynistic. On The Washington Post’s internal website, she wrote that Weigel’s retweet sent “a confusing message about what the Post’s values are.”

The Post’s chief spokesperson, Kris Coratti, then issued a statement condemning Weigel: “Editors have made clear to the staff that the tweet was reprehensible and demeaning language or actions like that will not be tolerated.”

The newspaper’s national editor, Matea Gold, wrote, “I just want to assure all of you that The Post is committed to maintaining a respectful workplace for everyone. We do not tolerate demeaning language or actions.”

The Post’s executive editor, Sally Buzbee, added: “The Washington Post is committed to an inclusive and respectful environment free of harassment, discrimination or bias of any sort.”
