House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today said the most sexist, awful thing I can imagine. Speaking about the president’s decisions related to the coronavirus, she said he is like a man who refuses to ask direction:
Observing his behavior, I have concluded that he is like the man who refuses to ask for directions. All of the answers are there. The scientists have the answers . . . And yet, the president continues to go down the wrong path and refuses to ask for directions from scientists who know better than any of us.
This is a grave insult. Just because Donald Trump was assigned “male” at birth does not mean he would refuse to ask directions. It is sexist stereotyping, and it has GOT. TO. STOP. NOW.
I too was assigned male at birth, and continue to stick with that assignation. Fortunately for me, I never need to ask for directions, because I always know where I am going. My wife may think otherwise, but she is wrong. And it has nothing to do with my gender.
Nancy, please “woke” up – it’s 2020, for goodness sake.
