CNN tweeted one of the dumbest headlines of the year, so far.
They were mocked on Twitter because, of course, statues don’t move in the snow.
I couldn’t care less about that.
I’m concerned about the wording of “stands her ground against the Wall Street bull.”
So this girl is standing defiant against a strong, positive financial outlook. Do I have that right?
The statue was put up by State Street Global Advisors to promote more women in Wall Street and on corporate boards. You’d think that a multi-trillion dollar investment firm would be in favor of a bull market.
Feminist virtue signaling is ad odds with good economics. Just ask the New York Daily News: “You go, Fearless Girl staring down the big, bad bull.”
The big, bad bull? What? The big, bad good market in which people are making money and have a positive outlook on the economy?
Not a single one asking why the Fearless Girl is opposed to the Bull.
The lesson that I learned here is that it seems like Liberal Feminists don’t know the difference between a bull market and a bear market, they don’t really care how the economy performs, they just want to make big show of girl power strength, regardless of the consequences; and if that is the case, that’s the perfect reason to keep feminists off of Wall Street and out of the board rooms. The last thing this country needs is a bunch of Social Justice Activists standing on top of the burning wreckage of the American economy, cheering “pussy power.”
