[TRIGGER WARNING: ANTI-CHOICE FUCKERY, TRANSPHOBIA, HOMOPHOBIA]
It's become entirely predictable for Lord Dampnut's pick to any department of the government being entirely against what that department is supposed to promote. So it's practically mundane yet still infuriating that this is happening:
Trump’s Likely Pick to Empower Women Is Mad That Disney Movies Don’t Feature Enough Strong Male Leads
Oh my god this lady are you serious but of course you are but seriously are you serious oh my god.
The position is tasked with overseeing State Department programs to end gender-based violence and empower women and girls around the world. So, naturally, President Donald Trump is reportedly considering Penny Young Nance, a far-right Christian activist who opposed reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act; recently cheered on an attempt to block a pregnant teen immigrant from an abortion; and has called on Hollywood to write more scripts featuring strong male leads.
But it just keeps getting worse!
At the CWA, Nance has called to defund Planned Parenthood and promoted the false idea that abortion is linked with breast cancer. Her organization argued that transgender kids shouldn’t have the right to use school bathrooms matching their gender identity, and it opposed a federal bill that would ban workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Nance has even taken aim at the Disney mega-hit Frozen, which featured two strong female princesses. Nance went on television to criticize the film’s portrayal of men. “Hollywood in general has often sent the message that men are superfluous, that they’re stupid, that they’re in the way,” she said on Fox & Friends.
No way. Kinda like.......... the way women are treated in every other kind of movie?????
It's like they found one of those anti-feminist for money women who just lays into the internalized misogyny and repeats MRA talking points on YouTube to rake in the views, praise, and cash from misogynistic men. Only I'm sure Nance was born rich so what is her deal?? Oh right, rich people can never get enough money and will do anything to get it.
I also think it's kind of hilarious that her last name is like the nickname of the horrible rich soccer mom/neighborhood bully named Nancy in movies.
Fuck you, Nance.
