Kick Ass Movie Scares Men

What's all the hub-bub about this movie Kick Ass? The movie is set to hit theaters April 16th and it looks great! But alas, there is much controversy over the 12 year old girl with the purple hair who kicks every one's ass. Some news organizations say it goes too far... having a 12 year old girl say the C word and partake in violence. Well I say you go girl!!! Who are the nay-Sayers? Oh...I know! Men. Yup. It's simple. Men don't want to see women...let alone girls...have power. That's why Hilary Clinton isn't the president. And that's why this awesome empowered young lady is getting a bum rap. How embarrassing for men around the country to watch their fellow boys get their butts kicked by a girl. It's not about the violence or the foul language, it's about the uneasy feeling the male gender gets when women make the slightest bit of headway in the physical strength department. It really is the last arena left that men use to oppress women. So I will bring my daughters to see Kick Ass! And I will tell my daughters that it's not appropriate to say the C word. And I will tell my daughters that it's not appropriate to assault people. And I will tell my daughters that it's the coolest thing ever to be a girl super hero in a movie! And I will tell my daughters what Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman to be nominated as Vice President of the United States said, "We've chosen the path to equality, don't let them turn us around."
