Lauren Silberman Kicks the Patriarchy!




So a woman tired out as a kicker for the NFL. Below is Good Morning America's discussion of the topic. This is the standard for journalism in America. Notice that no "journalist" questioned her lack of experience. Or the fact that she stated that playing football video games was one of her qualifications. Instead they went into the usual  propaganda mode of stating how "amazing" and "incredible" she was.

On a side note, the new "journalist" is pretty cute. Although she looks White her last name end in a "z". So diversity points for that!



Here is the heroic Lauren Silberman trying to kick a football. Honestly, this is one of the funniest videos I have ever seen.







Take that Patriarchy!

  1. What's most amusing is that she tried out for kicker. She didn't try out for the more demanding positions pretty much monopolized by black players.

    Since she tried out for a position that is all white, the implication is that white male = white female.
