OMG, Rita can’t just grab her crotch like that! This is a bald-faced example of cultural appropriation if I am not mistaken, and I do not think that I am. Self-crotch grabbing is something that men have been doing ever since the first man’s testes dropped and his thumb was developed enough to cup them just so.
Rita mimicking us is patronizing at best, and sexist at worst—an unforgivable crime. How would she feel if men kept pulling at their chests, trying to adjust imaginary bra-straps? Yeah, that’s what I thought. It is insulting to belittle our struggle so. We deal with these massive packages of ours on a daily basis, and there is no relief at the end of the day like there is with bras.
See, if only we all took the time to empathize with the other person’s point of view then these atrocious aggressions would be few and far between. We could put our efforts to more beneficial causes, like inventing windshield wipers that last for more than three uses before turning to complete shit. I swear, seeing my new wipers leave streaks across my windshield will be the cause of me going postal.
