Feminism Is Bullcrap and Chelsea Clinton is Proof

Feminism, I thought, meant that men and women would receive equal treatment and through hard work and merit both men and women can succeed.

I’m beginning to think this is a load of crap, given the feminist celebration of Chelsea Clinton.

I’m sure Chelsea is a wonderful person. She seems kind and caring and a good mother and loyal, loving daughter. But her singular accomplishment is being in the lucky sperm club.

Her father was President of the United States and her mother was a First Lady who rode her husband’s coat tails into the United States Senate before trying to ride her own accomplishments into the White House and failing spectacularly.

Now that Hillary Clinton has cratered and just as some Democrats are starting to admit her campaign was terrible, her speeches were terrible, her staff was terrible, and her strategy was terrible, the left is trotting out Chelsea Clinton as some sort of feminist hero to distract everyone no longer bitterly clinging to Russian conspiracy theories.

She has a book out for girls that liberals are falling all over themselves to buy.

She is now on the cover of Variety’s “Power of Women NY.”

This is not feminism, but aristocracy and cult. Chelsea Clinton has done nothing of her own merit. Even her hiring by NBC was more about her last name than her talent. She received ample critical reviews, but NBC renewed her contract and was paying her $600,000.00 in salary.

If Chelsea Clinton is some sort of feminist role model or hero, which she is being touted as, then feminism really is superficial victimology, readily worshipping at the door of the lucky sperm club so long as the right egg is fertilized and does not get aborted.
