In case you somehow missed it -- and yes, I've manage to remain ignorant of this celebration for the past 56 years -- today is International Women's Day. I hope you'll join me in celebrating the accomplishments of screeching harridans everywhere.
These, folks, are "empowered" women. Obviously there's been a Prozac shortage (doubtless due to the evil male patriarchy) that needs to be addressed.
Now compare this to truly great women I admire:
• My mother, who overcame brutal childhood poverty and starvation, educated herself, married a good man, raised four kids, and did it all with dignity, class, and humor.
• My daughters, who demonstrate young women can be ethical, moral, responsible, hard-working, and overall terrific examples for anyone.
• Millions upon millions of ordinary women who stayed faithful to their husbands, raised great kids, and contributed to their communities without becoming shrieking harridans in the process.
By the way, if you look at the Wikipedia page for International Women's Day, it makes no bones about its communist origins. In fact, it depicts a poster from 1975 which bears an eerie resemblance to all the Soviet Communist propaganda posters of the time. No accident, of course.
So here's an idea: If you want to help empower women, ignore the shrieking harridans and work toward saving ISIS slaves, women caught up in sex trafficking, or common-sense charities that go a long way toward lifting women out of poverty.
