Greetings, my fellow port swillers, and happy International Talk Like A Woman Day!

You know, where you talk through your nose? And end every sentence as a question? Up-talking, anyone?

Wait…that can’t be right.  Oh, maybe it’s:

International Preserving The Ability Of Women To Kill Other Unborn Women Day!

Spot on sub-text no doubt, at least in the West, but not much acknowledged outright.  Um, how about:

International Anybody’s A Woman Who *Believes* They’re A Woman Day!

Actually, I’ve read that there’s a real civil war in the fever swamps of the Left over this issue.

Well.

So just what the heck is International Women’s Day anyway?  According to Wiki:

March 8 was suggested by the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference to become an “International Woman’s Day.” After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.

I think that one paragraph pretty much sums up everything you really need to know.

At any rate, whatever it is, I’ll just take the opportunity to note my gratitude once more that my three daughters have grown up thoroughly despising Cultural Marxism, identity politicks, “Third Wave” feminism, and all the emotionally and psychologically stunted creatures with permanent Daddy-issues who live by such wretched codes, and instead are traditionalists, rational, skeptical, and self-aware.

(Oh, and as I was typing this, one of them came to me and asked me to get a jar open for her because the lid was on too tight.  Heh.)

UPDATE:  RBJ’s mention of Marie Curie in the comments reminded me of an apropos story:  One day, when Ol’ Robbo must have been about 13 or so, I said something to the Mothe to the effect that it didn’t seem fair that many more men went to med school than did women. (I don’t recall what prompted this.)

“Goddamit!” the Mothe snapped, “The first woman to get a medical degree in this country, Elizabeth Blackwell, did it in 1849.  Since then, any woman who’s really wanted to go to med school hasn’t had a single, bloody excuse not to!”

I didn’t pursue the thought any farther.
