Nevermind the Wage Gap . . .

From the ever amusing The Onion, an oldie but still appropriate parody of feminism being co-opted by various market forces:

“Women Now Empowered By Everything A Woman Does”

As recently as 15 years ago, a woman could only feel empowered by advancing in a male-dominated work world, asserting her own sexual wants and needs, or pushing for a stronger voice in politics. Today, a woman can empower herself through actions as seemingly inconsequential as driving her children to soccer practice or watching the Oxygen network.

You know that saying, “it’s funny ’cause it’s true?” This is a case of “it’s funny . . . oh shit, it’s true.”
