Step by step, inch by inch, one little bite at a time, by first corrupting language itself until common—even foundational—words, concepts, and perceptions are rendered meaningless.
For 26 years, Glamour magazine has reserved the “Women of the Year” award for, well, women.
Previous proposals for a male nominee were rejected “on the grounds that men aren’t exactly hurting for awards in this world,” the magazine writes. But this year, the glossy broke with tradition and named Bono as its first Man of the Year.
Bono was recognized for establishing a campaign called “Poverty is Sexist,” which is “specifically aimed at helping the world’s poorest women,” Glamour writes.
“I’m sure I don’t deserve it,” Bono told Glamour after he was told of the award. “But I’m grateful for this award as a chance to say the battle for gender equality can’t be won unless men lead it along with women. We’re largely responsible for the problem, so we have to be involved in the solutions.”
The gesture of giving a Woman of the Year award to a man was also inspired by the woman-friendly actions of other men, including President Obama identifying as a feminist and “super-cool actors” endorsing the United Nations’ #HeForShe campaign, Glamour says.
But of course. Guess this gives Bono unlimited ladies-room privileges, as long as he’s willing to put on a dress and claim to “identify” as something he clearly is not. And hey, why not? The more confusion these people can sow around definitions and societal boundaries, the happier they’ll be…and the closer to ultimate victory over Western civilization.
