The Saturday edition of the Wall Street Journal usually has an entire section of columns, book reviews, and other such stuff. Some of the columnists, like Joe Queenan, are interesting, funny, and/or entertaining. Others, like feminist Holly Finn, are just utterly moronic. Ms. Finn previously told us that because the maid in the now-unraveled Dominique Strauss-Kahn case was a “devout Muslim,” we must believe her phony rape allegations against DSK and should also feel sorry for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s maid (who slept her way into a nice house and life). But the best was this past week, when Finn called American parents who don’t want to give their nine-year-old girls the HPV vaccine (Gardasil), “the new prudes,” and said they should do it because 40-year-old Muslim men forcibly marry 11-year-old girls. HUH???? Oh, and no worries, she didn’t use the word Muslim because, ya know, that would offend Muslims. (No surprise that Finn is your typical limousine liberal, who went to a fancy boarding school.) Don’t you just love this “sharia fiat by feminist capitulation?”
WSJ Liberal Columnist Holly Finn Thinks US Should Vaccinate 8-Year-Old Girls to Accomodate Islamic Child Brides
Read this utter BS:
This is the new prudery. . . .”But we don’t want them to think sex is safe,” say some adults. They are being overprotective—common in recessionary times—but also adolescent. . . . Politicians and government agencies, amazingly, are the ones really acting their age on this.
Let’s put this in perspective. I’ve just seen a wedding portrait of Faiz Mohammed, 40, and Ghulam Haider, 11, in rural Afghanistan. He is turbaned, tanned, manly. She looks like a dazed girl scout, wrapped in a pretty pink shawl. When Miss Haider was asked how she felt that day, she said: “I do not know this man. What am I supposed to feel?” According to Girls Not Brides, there are 10 million child brides world-wide, at significantly higher risk of injury and death due to sexual activity—it’s a routine kind of rape. Our job is not to control children or another country’s traditions. . . .
The adventurous and the innocent shouldn’t be damned, wherever they live. So let’s put aside all prudery.
HUH? A parent’s job is “not to control children”?! On which planet is this idiot living? That’s exactly what a parent’s job is. Parents shouldn’t “damn” their kids for being sexually “adventurous?” This woman is a piece of crap and has exactly the kind of attitude that is the problem with “parents” today–that they aren’t parents at all.
And because Muslim adult men rape and marry young girls just coming out of toddlerhood, we in America should vaccinate our eight- and nine-year-old girls so they can have sex??? Oh, and we shouldn’t be opposed to “another country’s traditions”–which is how she soft-pedals a 40-year-old raping an 11-year-old girl.
Uh-huh. That’s what passes for opinion, these days, in the Wall Street Journal. Remember, this isn’t an op-ed some random nutjob submitted and got published. This woman is a regular, paid columnist by the Journal. Maybe they should change it to “Wall Street Urinal.”
