Mom calls for boys to be removed from public playground for ‘girl-only time’. The Washington Post responds.

An anonymous feminist mother writing in to an advice columnist submitted a question earlier this week so preposterous that even the equally left-wing, feminist media felt compelled to slam her.

In her question to The Washington Post’s advice columnist Carolyn Hax, the anonymous mother wrote that she has a daughter and that she and a group of other mothers with daughters recently began “getting together at a local playground at a set time each week.”

“Recently a mom of a boy brought her son to the playground at the same time we were there. I asked her (nicely, I thought) if she would mind leaving because we had wanted it to be a girls-only time. She refused and seemed angry at me,” the mother wrote.

“If she comes back, is there a better way I can approach her?” she then asked, arguing that it’s imperative the other mother be made to realize “[w]e live in a world where boys get everything and girls are left with the crumbs.”

“I would think this mom would realize that, but she seems to think her son is entitled to crash this girls-only time. I know I can’t legally keep her from a public park, but can I appeal to her better nature?” her question concluded.

Because the mother wrote in to The Washington Post, you’d expect her to be praised for her feminism, right? This is the same outlet that ran a column earlier this month in which avid feminist Victoria Bissel Brown literally argued that all men are evil. But that didn’t happen.

Instead Hax ripped into the mother for her own brand of entitlement, writing, “[I]f you’re going to accuse anyone of being ‘entitled,’ then ask yourself who just asked the world to bend to whom.”

“Shooing off the mom and her boy was terrible. And justifying it as a cosmic correction, for which an innocent child bears the weight? And still trying to do this even after you’ve had time to think about it? Wow,” she opined, adding that the boy “is a human being … with feelings, period.”

“Perhaps even a disposition that fits better into your idea of girl behavior than some of the girls there,” she added, referencing the belief that there’s no such thing as gender — let alone gender-linked behaviors and attitudes — meaning boys and girls are the same.

“People are not widgets. And the adult you shooed off is a mom, possessor of the same crumbs you’ve been fed, no? So don’t you think she would have just liked to hang with some fellow moms in the park? I mean, maybe not now. I’d avoid you thereafter if it were my kids you boy-shamed . . . for wanting to play with girls, by the way. As if they were fellow people or something. (How are you with irony?)”

Save for the columnist’s insinuation that the boy might be as much of a girl as the mother’s daughter, she nailed it, or so most on social media appear to think:

The last tweet was a reference to the left’s no-genders rule, which by the way Hax appears to buy into hook, line and sinker. But remember, she too is human, and humans sometimes believe in silly things.
