I did not attend any of the counter-protests as I was in front of the Spring Street Planned Parenthood. This is in Silver Spring, MD which is just north of the DC-MD border. Spring Street runs east-west. Earlier in the morning we saw quite a few people walking south on both First and Second Streets to the Silver Spring metro to attend the march. I caught a few of these on the video below.
According to Yes magazine, the fad is ostensibly to "make a collective visual statement". That it certainly is doing, but they may be making some Freudian slips with those statements. Even the article's title, "What's Up Pussy Hat?" probably tips their hand a bit. As you can see, the thing features ears that resembles cat ears. But who are we kidding? The term "pussy" is an obvious double entendre and a deliberate one at that, as the term "pussy" is a vulgar term for female genitalia.
I'm old enough to remember when feminists hated being viewed as "sex objects" and that they wanted not to be valued as a sum of sex parts but for their intellect. No more! With gimmick like "pussy hats" they clearly if unconsciously communicate that they believe their identities are to be found as, well, sex objects!
As I say in the video, Betty Friedan must be spinning in her grave. However, unless these women (and their ilk) repent and convert to Christianity, they greatly increase their chances of spending eternity in hell.
