There was an idea in the early 20th century that the so-called liberation of women was going to significantly improve human society. After all, they made up half the human race! Surely unlocking all that untapped potential couldn’t help but have incredibly positive results, right? As it turned out, that isn’t exactly what happened.
With Intersectionality ascending to an unquestionable dogma lately, the establishment press has come to believe that it is immensely important to find out what young women of color have on their minds. They must have come up with some incredibly great ideas during their 400 years of marginalization.
So, the media have increasingly turned over their platforms to young women of color.
And what messages do they have for us?
After having read hundreds of their op-eds and the like over the past few years, I’ve discovered that the No. 1 topic young woman-of-color journalists want us to listen to them talk about is…their hair.
They definitely have a lot to say about their hair.
Well, first of all, because they are young women. Looking nice is very important to young ladies and it takes up a lot of space in their brains.
Forget the anti-suffragists. If most of the early suffragists had any idea how utterly humiliating the consequences of their grand cause have turned out to be, they never would have pursued it in the first place.
But it’s not a bad thing for young women to look nice and be concerned about looking nice. Quite to the contrary, looking nice is extremely helpful when it comes to accomplishing the only two things young women absolutely must do for the good of their society and their species, which is get married and have children.
The future belongs to those who show up for it.
