All dapper old New York Senator Marty Golden wanted to do was help dames get jobs by teaching them how to walk up and down stairs in an elegant manner, because apparently New York Senator Marty Golden is a real swingin’ daddy and knows what’s missing in female job applicants these days. Like, sure you have an advanced degree, li’l missy, but can you stand and sit like a model? But wouldn’t you know it, then a bunch of dumb women’s libbers started in with their moaning and their bra-burning about “this is 2012″ and “maybe we could have equal pay laws instead of ‘etiquette’ classes” and also “go screw!”
Other goals of the “Polished Professional” summer series were to teach women “posture, deportment and the feminine presence,” as well as how to “correctly introduce self and others to: religious leaders, politicians, military and other socially prominent officials.” [...]
A spokesman for Golden told City & State the goal of the event was to help young women land a job.
But were the ladies grateful? PROBABLY NOT.
“The actual issues women face aren’t addressed by special classes on ‘the art of feminine presence’ and how to ‘walk up and down a stair elegantly,’” [Feministe's Jill] Filipovic said via email. “Our political leaders should be focusing on necessary policy changes to make sure that all women are paid fairly and are able to succeed professionally, regardless of their ability to walk with a book on their head. A 1950s-style etiquette class focusing on feminine charms rather than actual business acumen is insulting, regressive and wasteful.”
Well of course a feminist would say that. But what about a normal woman, like maybe the kind who would marry Rush Limbaugh? Sorry, we don’t know any of those.
And now poor old Sen. Marty Golden has had to cancel his class on feminine etiquette and deportment and posture, because chicks ruin everything.Related
