I caught up with Benjamin’s assistant Alli McCrack at the screening and asked her whether dressing up as a female sex organ is really a good way to gain respect for women. She said yes.
“We’re not trying to take ourselves too seriously, we’re trying to have fun and be creative,” she said.
I also asked her whether dressing up like a female body part helps to erase the 40 year feminist fight to get men to see women not for their body parts, but as equals.
“I think that the GOP’s view of women is bringing us back 40 years,” she said.
McCrack said Code Pink doesn’t believe women should be censored by men, so I also asked her why Code Pink found it appropriate to interrupt Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan during his speech last night. She said they weren’t censoring him and that they were exercising their First Amendment Rights, to which I replied, “By trampling on someone else’s free speech rights.”
Yep, that sums it up. They are so intellectually bankrupt that they think dressing up like that gains them respect. And screeching at others demonstrates their brainy thoughtfulness.
What it reveals is their utter cluelessness. No, actually, they’re clueproof. They cannot understand how their antics accomplish nothing but their own beclowning.
