I am really just stewing over something that has been bothering me for nearly a month.
Have any of you members of the sisterhood noticed that the patriarchy controlled weather service tends to name the biggest and worst hurricanes after women?!
First, we had Katrina and then Rita. Why did they name both of the storms after women? Well, I think it is sexist. Especially so considering the fact that hurricanes hit women the hardest.
In fact, just the name “her-i-cane” is upsetting. These storms should be called “himmicanes,” reflecting the violence they commit against women.
In the future, these himmicanes should be named only after men. Men are violent and abuse women and so do himmicanes.
