Pink pussy hats: The transgender, non-binary problem

JUNEAU – Juneau resistance rally participants didn’t get the memo.

The pink “pussy” hats were fashionable when President Donald Trump was sworn in. But no more. The hats were not welcome at many of the second annual resistance rallies taking place around the nation.

“The Pink P*ssy Hat reinforces the notion that woman = vagina and vagina = woman, and both of these are incorrect,” the Facebook page of the Women’s March in Pensacola, Florida states.

But in Juneau, there were a hundred or more of the hats on display today during the rally in shocking defiance of non-binary people and women of color. The hats are the knit symbols of lady parts, and are now considered politically incorrect.

It seems that transgender people don’t have pink lady parts and neither do many non-Caucasian women.

The hats and the people who wore them gathered at the Alaska Capitol for music, speeches and a cathartic anti-Trump tribal experience. Participants even dressed the statue of William Seward in a pink hat, and draped him with a pink blanket.

Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott spoke at the Juneau “resistance” rally and was warmly applauded. The emcee reminded the crowd that “behind every good man is a woman telling him what to think.” So true, so true.

Legislators attending included Reps. Scott Kawasaki, Geran Tarr, Sam Kito, Harriet Drummond, and Justin Parish. Also, former Rep. Beth Kerttula was present.

Meanwhile, in New York City, Anchorage Assembly member Eric Croft donned his pink pussy hat, which essentially meant he is wearing a replica of a vagina on his head today, and attended the rally rather than going to the museum, which had been his original plan.

This photo provides Must Read Alaska with too many inappropriate thoughts. We are blushing.

John Aronno, who works as an aide to Assembly member Chris Constant, held down the men’s solidarity (can we say that?) fort in Anchorage, but chose a reddish color for his vagina hat for the rally:

In Detroit, women were discouraged from wearing the offending hats, so they would not make uncomfortable the “transgender women and gender non-binary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.”

“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. I care more about mobilizing people to the polls than wearing one hat one day of the year,” said Phoebe Hopps, who founded the Women’s March Michigan.

In Juneau, the rally was large, not surprising considering the demographics, and appeared to be a great catharsis for a multitude of angry women and gentle men, who clapped and had spurts of cheering, while carrying signs that “virtue signaled” their moral superiority.

Rep. Scott Kawasaki, bright green jacket, who is known around the Capital City for his dating activities with young and impressionable females, attended the resistance rally today. His menu choices were varied, but the odds were in his favor.

The music was loud and uplifting, some of the signs were funny (“Free Melania”) but many of the faces in the crowd were belabored.

The men who participated wore a submissive “beta-male look,” and didn’t smile much. They did get a lot of estrogen-fueled approval for being there.

The women were taking lots selfies and looking at pictures of themselves on their phones. Facebook will be filled with their images soon. For the grandkids, you know.

  • Wonder if the citizens of Anchorage picked up the “tab” for Croft to New York?

  • Well, it is certain that behind Mallott there is somebody telling him what to think because he sure has never done it himself. The scary part is that people like Mallott think they’ve actually done the jobs that their titles have represented.

  • YUK!

  • From the sublime to the ridiculous.

  • “It seems that transgender people don’t have pink lady parts, and neither do many non-caucasian women.” You seem to be taking some liberty with this statement IMO.
    Perhaps you could give us some pictures!?

  • The Left will eventually start feeding on its own because the game they started playing in the late 80s / early 90s with Political Correctness, Moral and Cultural Relativism and Deconstruction is a no-win, and the only way to postpone the inevitable collapse is to cannibalize everything, very much in a Ponzi Scheme-like fashion. You can’t promise everything to everyone and actually deliver it. So the Left has to constantly be on the lookout for new investors, so to speak. Thus they pander to every imaginable demographic and whichever oddball sub-group of (for good reason) marginalized and dismissed goofs they can find. The Left sells victimhood, they groom their special interest groups by catering to and enabling their weepy ineffectualness, and reap the benefits by championing their self-defeating and ultimately anti-human interests.

    So yes, I’m not at all surprised to learn that LGTBQ People of Color are upset that they lack representation due to the dearth of Mocha-tinted Pussy Hats, and that pink Pussy Hats are a heteronormative CIS-gendered crocheting Hate Crime.

  • More like a Pepto Bismol article.

  • I would say, “Unbelievable” but that’s not quite accurate these days…
    Thanks for the excellent perspective on absurdity taking itself seriously.

  • Psalm 2

    2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

    2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,

    3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

    4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

    5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

    6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

    7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

    8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

    9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

    10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

    11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

    12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him
