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.”

She is standing up against the bull?  The Wall Street Charging Bull being “the symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity,” as a reference to a Bull Market.

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?


Of course, other feminists have gotten in on the action putting pussy hats and Moms Demand Action hats on the statue and taking pictures.

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.”

  1. I get what you’re saying.
    The statue is supposed to be about a call for more female hiring in stock market firms; but the message may be lost and the image is confusing


    1. There’s a wonderful mariachi song about the rodeo, with a line that translates as: “I want to ride a bull for you to watch, my love!” Sounds just about perfect when sung by Linda Ronstadt.
