Gillibrand’s Own Sons Have No Place In Her ‘Future’
Karol Markowicz, New York Post
“The future is female.” It’s a favorite slogan of the identity left that has now gone mainstream. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted it on Wednesday, adding that the future is also “intersectional” and “powered by our belief in one another.”
But if the future is female, what happens to our boys? And what message are we sending our present-day girls?
Gillibrand is one of about 30 Democrats considering running for president in 2020, and the tweet suggests she’s seizing some strategic left-wing ground (in a primary field crowded with lefties) by appealing to the Dems’ identity-obsessed base.
Her mentioning “intersectionality” is a nod to that base. Born in the ivory tower, intersectionality is a theory that various forms of oppression overlap and compound the suffering of minority groups. Thus, a woman might be oppressed; but a black woman is more oppressed; a black, gay woman even more so; and a black, gay, disabled woman is the most oppressed of all.
