Women’s March “Pussy Hats” are OUT for Feminists for Being too Transphobic and Racist

Nothing is safe from the social justice crowd, not even the very symbols of the social justice crowd.

The knitted pink pussy hats made famous by the women’s march are now being labeled as transphobic and racist, meaning that you won’t see them in the upcoming Women’s March next week, which will celebrate the one year anniversary of the first women’s march.

According to the Detroit Free Press, feminists are reporting that since “trans women” don’t have vaginas. What’s more, women of color typically have brown genitalia, and since the hat represents female genitalia, a pink color is highly exclusionary.

“I personally won’t wear one because if it hurts even a few people’s feelings, then I don’t feel like it’s unifying,” said Phoebe Hopps, founder and president of Women’s March Michigan, according to DFP.

“I care more about mobilizing people to the polls than wearing one hat one day of the year,” she added.

Of course, the creators of the hat hold that the only reason pink was chosen was because it represents femininity:

The color pink was chosen “because pink is associated with femininity,” the Pussyhat Project posted on its website. “We did not choose the color pink as a representation of some people’s anatomy. Anyone who supports women’s rights is welcome to wear a Pussyhat. It does not matter if you have a vulva or what color your vulva may be. If a participant wants to create a Pussyhat that reflects the color of her vulva, we support her choice.”

However, the Pensacola chapter of the Women’s March sees the hats as “eurocentric” “knee-jerk” reaction to Trump:

“The Pink P*ssy Hat reinforces the notion that woman = vagina and vagina = woman, and both of these are incorrect. Additionally, the Pink P*ssy Hat is white-focused and Eurocentric in that it assumes that all vaginas are pink; this is also an incorrect assertion,” it posted to its Facebook page. The post has been shared more than 1,200 times.

“The Pensacola Women’s March organizers understand that this idea was a knee-jerk reaction to the heinous, sexist, misogynistic Trump administration, but it is also just that: a knee-jerk reaction, not fully thought out. Therefore, we ask that march goers refrain from wearing this hat and instead, pick an alternative headwear that focuses on collective women’s liberation for ALL women: transgender women, multinational women, disabled women, queer women — the most marginalized. It is only through the centering and leadership of these groups that women will be liberated — not through exclusionary white feminism, which the Pink P*ssy Hat is indicative of.

It’s interesting that the Pensacola chapter of the Women’s March called the creation of the pussy hat a “knee jerk reaction,” because that’s exactly what the Women’s March was a whole.

The women who participated in the march knew only a few things; that Trump was President, he was a Republican, and he beat Hillary. The suffering this caused the left launched a million and one protests ranging from non-violent to very violent, and all of them were a lashing out from the left. Hilariously, each of them thought they were really doing something good, and that would change the course of the future.

Narrator: “They didn’t.”

Whether for or against the hats, the Women’s March has a larger problem on its hands, and that’s the fact that the marches aren’t accomplishing anything. In fact, the entire Resistance movement hasn’t, and that’s by the admission of its own analysts.

Furthermore, the “pussy hat” has only served as signal for others that the person under it isn’t to be taken seriously. For one, the left’s insistence that it wear genitalia in some form or fashion has never helped anyone not on the team to understand ideas or positions any better. It’s only acted as a hindrance to serious conversation. Combine that with the fact that the social justice and feminist crowds have been highly unreasonable and overly dramatic, and you have what only amounts to a circus sideshow in the media.

But watching the leftist social justice groups turn on its own is always delicious to watch. Today it’s pussy hats on the chopping block. Tomorrow it’ll be references to vaginas at all. Then it will be the type of clothing people wear, or messages on the picket signs, or banned words, or who knows. Eventually, as most social justice centered things do, it’ll devolve into a dictatorial bit of asinine nonsense that no one but the insane will want to attend.

So long pussy hats. If you ask me, your death signals the beginning of the end.
