there are laws that make no sense.
at the top of the list is the fact that men (in america) can walk around with no shirt on but women cant.
how is that not sexism?
isnt that the dictionary definition of sexism? lets see:
Definition of SEXISM
1 : prejudice or discrimination based on sex; especially : discrimination against women
2 : behavior, conditions, or attitudes that foster stereotypes of social roles based on sex
other day i was at wrigley field. holiest place i know. also, despite its proximity to Lake Michigan, a park that can get hot in the summertime especially if youre sitting in the sun in the bleachers.
so just like all my heroes: harry caray, bill veeck, and martin luther king jr., i took my shirt off
BECAUSE THATS WHAT YOU DO WHEN ITS HOT AND YOURE A MAN
but if you’re a woman, you just look on longingly and think about the olden times when women were equal to men.
people are all up in arms about comedian adam corolla saying something thats sexist, but they’re totally cool with the u.s. government being sexist. not sure i understand that.
in eurpoe they have this figured out. just like health care. just like summer vacations. just like long lunches. just like the quality of beer. and i dont know about you, but as a proud American, i hate being second to europe at anything. but apparently the lawmakers are all, “europe? lol. as if.”
sure at first people would be all omg look at that lady with no shirt off. but they said that when they first saw a black man with a white woman holding hands. they said that when they first saw bob dylan with an electric guitar. they said that when they first saw barack obama at the podium that said prez of the world.
and superfast we got over it.
i yearn for a first day of summer when all of God’s children, blacks and whites, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, men and women, will be able to join hands and say, let me help you take that shirt off, its too hot.
and no one will get arrested for a sexist law.
