I might be going out on a limb here, but judging from the output of every TV station and newspaper in the country, I'm starting to think there may be some kind of sporting competition involving women in the offing.
Seriously though, watching how the MSM reports on 'wimminz's football' is enough to make you yearn for the snarky irreverence of North Korean TV.
Hey, the folks producing Pyongyang Today have the threat of a firing squad hanging over them. What's our media's excuse?
Curiously enough though, despite glowing coverage 24/7, there still seems to be a distinct lack of evidence that 'wimminz's football' has any actual women supporting it, outside of the usual freak show collection of feminazis. I mean, I'm just putting this out there, but in so far as there is absolutely no evidence that these freaks represent normal women, wouldn't it be more accurate to start calling it something else? Say, 'creepy loser football' or 'damaged wierdo football'?
Oops.... my mistake: they've broken the code. The reason why normal women don't want anything to do with them is that their sport just doesn't have enough deranged misandry.
Yep, that's the answer. They just don't hate men enough.
Of course, you may wonder why such supposed supporters of the sisterhood are ripping off a song by male writers in the first place. Aren't there the odd one or two girl writers out there?
In fact, I have just the song for them!
Meanwhile, back in the real world, taking a fun song by some guys and turning it into a celebration of feminazi lunacy is exactly the point. As ever with these people, they don't want it, they just want men not to have it. Don't believe me? Consider this:
The new tune and accompanying video references past successes of the England team in the same way as the original song. But the names, and footage involved, have been switched. Substitutions include Jade Moore for Bobby Moore; Nikita Parris for Gary Lineker; Steph Houghton for Bobby Charlton, and Jordan Nobbs for Nobby Stiles.That's the feminist definition of achievement in a nutshell: take something men did, and demand everyone pretend women did it.
I want to say something snarky, but like Ann Coulter said, the left's big advantage is their resistance to parody. Give it twenty years and children - at least the non-aborted ones - will be reading about how Everest was first climbed by Hillary Edmund and Sherpa Tanya.
For those of you keeping score at home, this means that the Refectory at Wokeingham University serving chilli and burritos on 'Mexican Day' is cultural appropriation, but digitally erasing high achieving males and inserting wimminz is perfectly reasonable and anyone who objects is probably a rapist.
All of which takes me back to my original point. Can you imagine if we had actual journalists in the MSM?
Actually, I can. I'm thinking the interviews would go something like this:
INTERVIEWER:I'm here with Millie Tant, newly crowned wimminz footballer of the year. Milli, congratulations, what does does wimminz football mean to you?
MILLI: It means we're going out there and sticking it to the Patriarchy. We're telling girls 'you don't need no man', embrace your girl power and stick it to these pigs. You don't have to live your life according to what some phallic oppressor says. We're here, we're free and we don't need nothing from no man.
INTERVIEWER: OK, so how does wimminz football differ from men's football?
MILLI: Well, they're basically the same...
INTERVIEWER: But you have a Wimminz FA, right?
MILLI: Not exactly...
INTERVIEWER: Your own clubs?
MILLI: Not really.
INTERVIEWER: How about your own pitches?
MILLI: Nope..I'm not sure where this going...
INTERVIEWER: But I bet you design your own shirts, right?
MILLI:......Yes, indeed. They're sticking it to The Man... just as long as the man continues to subsidise them, offer them free use of his facilities and pretend to take their loony cult seriously.
This is the real evil of it all. It's not just that these are horrible people pushing a vile ideology - it's the demand that people pretend that their awful, appalling appropriation of football is anything other than garbage.
As the great Theodore Dalrymple noted, the point of pushing obvious lies is not to convince anybody, it is to humiliate them. Once people have been forced to repeat absurdities they have been in both sense of the word, demoralized. The demand that people pretend that this parody of football is actually good is a demand that people ignore the evidence of their own eyes and their own reason. It is an attempt to outlaw reality. No healthy society should tolerate such a thing.
