Is It 'Brave' For Women To Wear Pants?
Is it brave to wear pants while female? Apparently, Hollywood thinks it is.
On Sunday, Actress Evan Rachel Wood wore an expensive pantsuit to the Golden Globes. When asked about her allegedly daring look, the "Westworld" actress explained her heroism: Courageous Wood wore her pricey pants to send a message to young girls seemingly mandated to wear dresses that they too can wear pants—not that there's anything wrong with dresses, quickly added the actress far too "woke" to slip up and offend the Dress Lobby.
“I’ve been to the Globes six times and I’ve worn a dress every time,” Wood told E! News. “I love dresses — I’m not trying to protest dresses — but I wanted to make sure that young girls and women knew that they aren’t a requirement, and that you don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to. And to just be yourself, because your worth is more than that.”
#Hero. Someone get this chick a presidential Medal of Freedom, ASAP. (Rumor has it, they are just giving them away at the White House anyway.)
Is this what Hollywood feminism has come to? As noted by The Federalist's Inez Feltscher, is Wood so out of touch that she doesn't even realize that regular women wear pants all the time, like all day, every day? Further, are feminists really going to pretend that women are victims because they are somehow magically "forced" into wearing insanely expensive dresses at an insanely expensive award show full of self-congratulation?
Give me a break. The struggle is not real.
"Just be yourself, because your worth is more than that.”

Feltscher even complied a list of women who have worn pants to previous award shows to drive home the glaring this-is-not-heroic point; Marlene Dietrich, Barbara Streisand, Diana Ross, Diane Keaton and Madonna all made the list. They should all receive bravery points too, apparently.
Can't feminist feigning victimhood just find another Everyday Feminism brainwashing course to take in their alone time and shut up already?
