You read that headline right: “Feminists are angry that Kermit the Frog’s new girlfriend is young and thin”
Despite being a caricature of the loud, abrasive, violent, bullying, self-centered actress type, something went dreadfully wrong with pop culture and a generation grew up mistaking Miss Piggy as some kind of a role model, simply because she was tough, female, and got what she wanted. Nevermind that she usually got it by whining and throwing temper tantrums while being a nuisance and a danger to those around her.
Why Miss Piggy became a feminist icon in the last 20 years ought to be beyond me, but for some reason i can kind of see it.
Maybe Helena Horton is a professional troll. Given her job as Trending News Journalist for the UK Telegraph, sounds fairly plausible. But more likely she’s been trolled by twitter because of wanting to pursue the narrative that’s been fed by all of the BS awards and accolades Miss Piggy has been given by the actual feminist community.
Best part that a lot of the tweets being used as supposed ‘evidence’ of feminist backlash are coming from accounts I recognize as individuals associated with Gamergate. Most folks seem to be getting a kick out of the fact that Kermit was dumped by the violent bullying ‘feminist’ and is now dating an ‘attractive’ pig who’s probably a hell of a lot nicer to him.
