It's way past the point of saying Canada's radicals are so ridiculous they have to be seen and heard to be believed.
Now I'm prepared to believe at least the possibility of anything, no matter how preposterous it sounds.
In the video below, an "anti-racism activist and feminist macro-thinker" alleges she is the victim of "sexist oppression" because when she goes to a hardware store on College Street in Toronto, she is ignored.
The "macro-thinker," May Lui, who has an M Ed. from OISE, apparently doesn't have a macro-thought that enables her to conceive of an explanation for being ignored in a hardware store other than "sexist oppression." I can think of quite a few possibilities..
Our "macro-thinker" also doesn't seem to have much experience with the unique species from which hardware store employees are drawn. The whole point of working in a hardware store is to get a feeling of superiority over the hapless and helpless customers who venture in for assistance. I get ignored in hardware stores until I go to the counter and say, "Hey! Got any 3/8" steel-plated acorn nuts?" and then I'm lucky if I get pointed to the right aisle with an index finger instead of a middle one. Maybe I too am the victim of sexist oppression! Perhaps I can get a lifetime supply of WD40 with an HRC complaint.
What is hard to believe is that these perpetually aggrieved people may actually take themselves seriously. One is also left to wonder if they realize how they devalue the meaning of the word "oppression" by using it so frivolously.
Check out the 3:30 point of the video below:
