Imagine a situation where a scientist works on a project and then he and his team manage to land a spacecraft on a comet traveling 41,000 mph hour. Imagine that the comet is 311 million miles away from the earth. Imagine that during celebratory interviews after the mission’s success that a bunch of feminists freak out over said scientist’s shirt — made for him by a female friend — and soon afterward he cries into his own hands and apologizes for ever daring to wear the “sexist” piece of cloth. Now imagine that all of these things take place on the same day Kim Kardashian’s butt and breasts are plastered all over the internet.
The Washington Examiner reported Friday:
One of the scientists responsible for successfully landing the Rossetta probe on a comet millions of miles away on Friday responded to outrage directed at a shirt he wore earlier this week during the televised landing.
“I made a big mistake and I offended many people and I am very sorry about this,” the scientist, Dr. Matt Taylor, said during a press briefing, choking back tears and struggling to speak.
As news of the probe’s successful landing shot around the world, so did outrage directed at Taylor’s shirt, which featured images of provocatively dressed women with guns.
“No no women are toooootally welcome in our community, just ask the dude in this shirt,” The Atlantic’s Rose Eveleth complained in a tweet.
Ask yourself what has become of Western Civilization when a grown man who just helped land a spacecraft on a comet allows himself to break down into tears because a bunch of irrational women are upset over the kind of clothes he likes to wear when he makes history.
Now imagine a world where feminist rage wasn’t directed at physicists who unlock the secrets of the cosmos because of so-called “micro-aggressions,” but at women who capture world-wide attention by constantly finding new and creative ways to objectify themselves.
A man who likes cartoon drawings of busty cyborg-women in skimpy outfits wielding guns becomes Public Enemy Number One for feminists just moments after he makes a key contribution to all of humankind, but Kim Kardashian’s Photoshopped butt and boobs and waistline garners a collective, “That’s Kim for you.” Telling.
European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission and its ability to land a robotic probe on 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko will likely pay scientific dividends for years to come. It won’t be long before most people forget all about the “shirt storm” over Matt Taylor’s attire, but the selective feminist moral outrage displayed — and his reaction to it — is worth remembering.
Western Civilization is spinning out of control like a malfunctioning rocket lost in space. The reason is because “mission control” is housed with modern day feminists, moral relativists, and the kind of individuals who get excited any time a celebrity like Ms. Kardashian lowers the cultural bar already hovering just above our toes.
Hopefully this incident will be a wake-up call for a number of people, just like Gamer Gate was for those who grew up thinking Stephen Colbert, The Huffington Post, Jon Stewart, and MSNBC were actually unbiased sources of news.
