The Morning Rant

"Remember when progressives squealed like stuck pigs when John McEnroe observed that Serena Williams would be ranked about #700 if she competed against men? They were all, like, wetting their panties, and You Can't Say Things Like That, because "grrl power". Well, I was thinking about this grrl power hooey a couple of nights ago when I was watching the pairs figure skating finals. It suddenly occurred to me that you never see the girl hoist the guy over her head with one arm and spin around a bunch of times. If grrl power was *really* a thing, pairs figure skating would be very different: we'd be watching itty-bitty women tossing the men around like sacks of flour, right? Just like the movies where the kick-ass female beats the stuffing out of 3 Special Forces guys at the same time. Let me put it this way: the first time I see a woman figure skater lift her male partner up with one hand and skate around on the ice, I'll eat a damn bug."
