Women, And Their Breasts, Have A Place In PoliticsMay 29, 2011 No Comments
Outside of being a senator’s daughter, the two things Meghan McCain is most known for are her breasts. She knows her cup runneth over, and frankly, she doesn’t mind.
“I wake up every morning with large breasts, and it doesn’t affect me,” she told the New York Times.
“But people had a meltdown when I posted a photo of myself on Twitter. I found such extreme sexism in it. I’ve spent as much of my career having my weight and body commented on as my writing and politics.”
While she’s hardly a political heavy-weight, it’s not her ideas that are being attacked, but her breasts. But she makes no apologies for having the qualifications of a woman in her 20s, and the dress sense to match.
Politics have been known make even the sexiest of women dress like nuns, covering up every female part of their bodies in order to fit in with the men in grey suits. They are made into separate entities simply because they have breasts and a uterus, not exactly accessories they can choose to leave at home. So they can cover up the goods (and be attacked for looking frumpy) or dress fashionably (and be turned into a sex object). It’s the Madonna / Whore complex, or in this case Hillary / Palin.
Sons of politicians do not fall under the constant scrutiny of the daughters, simply because they are men. Sure, their sex lives come into play when they make a mistake, but women like Meghan are not making any mistakes. They are simply living a feminine life.
Meghan just so happened to be born with the gift of curves. Women are new and scary to men in the political world, and nothing is more terrifyingly female than a nice pair of knockers. But they better get used to it. Women, and their parts, aren’t going anywhere.
