Pussy hats are sexist.

Pussy hats, in case you've been living under a rock, are those pink knit caps with cat ears. Feminists wear them to equality marches to show their support for women's rights.

But now a critic has come along to say that those hats are actually offensive to transgenders because they are “reproductive system-focused" (which is horrible because men who dress as women don't have those parts and, well, that's just offensive).

Taylor Griggs writes in the Daily Emerald, the school paper at the University of Oregon, that "The reclamation of sexual objectification and historically objectifying words is a cisgender white woman’s game," whatever that means.

And she quotes someone named Marie Solis, who wrote a piece titled, How the Women's March's 'genital-based' feminism isolated the transgender community. In the piece, Solis said that "pussy hats set the tone for a march that would focus acutely on genitalia at the expense of the transgender community. Signs like ‘Pussy power,’ ‘Viva la vulva’ and ‘Pussy grabs back’ all sent a clear and oppressive message to trans women, especially: having a vagina is essential for womanhood."

Yes, the feminist is objecting to the use of pussy hats for the poor "women" who don't have, well, those.

"While transgender women certainly should not be left out of any definition of womanhood, there definitely needs to be a conversation about the female reproductive system and I think there is some merit to taking back what the government seems so privy to taking away from us," she writes.

Who's to blame? Of course, it's President Trump, says Griggs.

"Some of this genitalia-centered rhetoric is a direct backlash to President Trump’s attacks on the female reproductive system, especially his now-infamous 'grab ‘em by the pussy' comments and his ongoing fight against abortions that was solidified in January when he signed an executive order 'banning foreign nongovernmental organizations that receive certain kinds of American aid from counseling health clients about abortion or advocating for abortion law liberalization.'"

In her piece, Solis quoted a trans "woman" as saying she skipped the Women's March in January because she felt excluded.

"The main reason I decided not to go was because of the pussy hats," 28-year-old Jade Lejeck said in an interview Sunday night. "I get that they're a response to the 'grab them by the pussy' thing, but I think some people fixated on it the wrong way."

Lejeck, a trans woman from Modesto, California, said the hats signaled to her that there would be other trans-exclusionary messages at the women's marches.

Yes, for liberals, the silliness never ends. If you celebrate womanhood, you leave out ... those who aren't women but wish to be but can't be because they don't have ovaries but they wish they did so isn't that good enough to make them honorary women?

For Griggs, “transgender women certainly should not be left out of any definition of womanhood.” And nor should men. Some transgender men “have vaginas and uteri that cause significant psychological pain for them that is rarely addressed,” Griggs said. But wait, they could still wear the pussy hat, right? Ugh, it's all so complicated.

Griggs wraps up with this mouthful. "We need to advocate for the rights of people with vaginas and uteri. We need to stop the objectification of femmes. But we also need to realize that not everybody feels safe or wants to do that by wearing pussy hats, and change some of our rhetoric to reflect that. If we’re going to wear pussy hats and participate in 'slut walks' and free our nipples, we’ve got to also have some 'Protect Trans Lives' signs in our hands, and we need to show up at Black Lives Matter rallies and lift up women of color who don’t benefit from the same privileges that we do," she wrote.

You gotta' wonder if the Black Lives Matter folks like being pulled into this mess.
