Brooke Hogan Colluder Of The Week

image As part of my goal to fight sexism one of things that I am dedicated to doing is fighting the colluders.  Just like every social institution, patriarchy is dependent upon women to function.  When women participate in our denigration it limits our ability to succeed. 

In a clip that can be seen at Jezebel, Ms. Hogan states the following.

"I am not actually into voting. I think that it is kind of crazy that a woman is running because I think that women (sic) a lot of emotions, menopause and PMS and stuff. Like I'm so moody all the time, I know I wouldn't be able to run a country because I'd be crying one day and yelling at people the next day."

This mental idiot even has her own show.  Spewing this kind of nonsense and rhetoric publicly gives credence to the claims of the hateful misogynists  that certain characteristics are inherently female, and others inherently male.  By reifying this nonsense Ms. Hogan is participating in her own marginalization, and as such has earned Womanist Musings first Colluder Of The Week Award.   We are no more subject to our biology than men and further, even if we were to give credence to these ridiculous claims, it is problematic in that traits assigned to masculine identities are privileged over those assigned to female. In a world that is actively engaged in destruction and war, why is it that nurturing and love is considered a negative?  Perhaps if we were tackle the problems that plague our little blue planet from the position that everyone is equal and worthy of respect, there would be a lot less pain and suffering.

I couldn't believe this sh!t when I saw it. It's clear her roommate and the woman being interviewed both disagreed with her.

When I heard her say that, I had a complete disconnect with reality, like--that just couldn't have come out of her mouth..but the way Hulk seriously gendered his kids, I don't know if I should be so surprised

LMAO..!!!! They even had her on Larry King live the other night for what reason I don't know

Someone needs to explain to this woman that she doesn't act that way because she's a woman, she does so because she's not very bright.

Incidentally, my husband just walked past, and seeng the picture asked "Is that a man?"

Faith said...

Why is anyone surprised? She's a spoiled privileged white girl. Yup I said it. She has no clue about the real world. Look what her family did to the man that was involved in the car accident. They are totally selfish and self-indulgent. So from her perspective she's right. SHE is NOT leadership material and she thinks ALL women are like her. She has gender bias.

Does she have metal on her teeth?

Scott said...

Can she really be labled as a colluder? Perhaps she just doens't know any better?

I agree with Faith said. I totally believe that a woman can run a country and that she won't let the country down by crying etc. Just look at the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel. She is doing pretty well.
I would just like to say that I like your blog and will be visiting it a lot.
