Don’t patronize me

To the editor,

I had watched news clips of the Women's March where Madonna, the Flower of American Womanhood, expressed her fond wish to blow up the White House.

I don't know if she was investigated by the FBI, but if she was, that would do it. Had a man said the same thing, and was dumb enough to say it in front of a TV camera, he certainly would have come to the attention of the FBI too. The response to her comment has nothing to do with gender discrimination. 

However, I don't think any of the celebrities who make absurd comments should be taken seriously. They are more grandstanders than threats to anyone, Madonna (A misnomer if I ever hear one, wasn't a comedian, but her mother sure was.)  

And don't forget the president made Barbara Streisand fat.    

As for Kathy Griffin, I have no idea how anyone could find a replica of the president's severed head, dripping with blood, mimicking ISIL executions, funny. I can tell the difference between humor and viciousness. When the inevitable backlash occurred she played the Woman's Card by tearfully blaming the president for destroying her career.   When 11-year-old Barron saw Griffin's replica of his father's head, he was very upset. When this was mentioned, instantly another female personality made fun of the child. If this has become this country's idea of liberated womanhood, where do I resign.    

The letter writer also referred to the president as the Liar In Chief. Apparently he is unfamiliar with Hillary's whoopers, or maybe he  just holds women to a lower standard. Chivalry is not dead after all.    

I am a woman and I demand equality and respect, but I do not want to be patronized. Men are not the enemy, our loss of our moral compass is.
