As illegal immigrants celebrate their crimes in the street and gay weddings are being officiated from coast to coast, the only apparent downside for many in the left-leaning media is a dearth of bigotry about which to stoke outrage.
A recent Huffington Post article, for example, served as both an advertorial for a feminist coloring book obviously not aimed at the medium’s typical audience and as a warning against sexist bathroom signs. The book, Badass Feminist Coloring Book, includes black-and-white sketches of notable feminists along with selected quotes.
Hari Konabolu’s entry includes the observation: “We live in a world that is so sexist that women still can’t wear pants on public restroom signs.”
Ignoring the obvious fallacy of using identical silhouettes to distinguish two separate facilities, Konabolu’s comment was roundly attacked by many Huffington Post readers.
“Its [sic] called telling the difference between mens [sic] and women bathrooms,” one critic wrote. “If that is feminism I guess I missed the boat.”
Feminism in general was the object of ridicule among many readers, including one who wondered why a coloring page featuring a “torn apart fetus” and a “happy, smiling feminist” wasn’t included in the book.
For author Priscilla Frank, however, this crass and deeply ideological work is the perfect gift for “the powerful ladies in your life.”
A few of the pages included in the article ranged in subject matter from an image of a breastfeeding mom to a depiction of Wagatwe Wanjuki alongside a sign declaring: “F—k what you heard.”
Author Ijeoma Oluo described the intention behind the unorthodox coloring book in its motto: “You’re never too old for coloring books & you’re never too young for feminism.”
She went on to explain that she spends “a lot of time neck-deep in misogyny and racism” – a charge notably difficult to quantify or disprove. Her story and the resulting book, however, did serve to win Frank over as a fervent supporter.
“Needless to say,” she wrote in her review, “we love everything about this project.”
