Miss Piggy to receive feminist award from the Brooklyn Museum, presented by Gloria Steinem

29 Apr

Yeah.

“For more than 40 years of blazing feminist trails with determination and humor, and for her groundbreaking role inspiring generations the world over,” Miss Piggy is set to receive an important honor from the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

The Museum announced that Miss Piggy will be honored with the Sackler Center 2015 First Award, and will appear in conversation with Gloria Steinem, herself already an honoree, on June 4. Kermit the Frog is also scheduled to attend.

Previous recipients include Julie Taymor, Sandra Day O’Connor, and Anita F. Hill. Tickets to the private event are available for purchase.

When reached for comment, Miss Piggy only had this to say:

giphy
Actually, apparently ‘she’ ‘said’:

“Moi is thrilled.”

So, the woman who said that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle, is going to give an award to a fictitious character, portrayed by a marionette…

We truly are living in transparodistic times, alas…

Winning comment goes to Arch:

Congratulations, Miss Piggy, your physical and emotional abuse, as well as your consistent control and emasculation of the passive, meek, beta, Kermit the Frog, embodies the feminist movement. Appropriate for a pig to be the face of the cause. Congrats again!

Hear, hear! 🙂

    A (feminist) woman needs a man like a pig needs a frog—-LOLOLOLOLOL

    For once the femihags found an appropriate icon for themelves. Most of them are fat sows, being pulled around like marionettes!

    Ha! And the corollary: a man needs a feminist like a frog needs a pig! 😉

    Indeed, they were surprisingly spot on, in this case! 🙂

    Do the award-givers know that Miss Piggy puppet has always been voiced & controlled by men?

    Apparently not. 🙂

    Or they don’t care, because it’s all symbolic, ephemeral, not based on anything real and substantive and truthful.

    Much like feminism itself. 🙂

    Seriously, they must be trolling themselves? Certainly feminists lack self-awareness, but crikey, this is just hilarious. An overweight, screeching sow – the perfect representation of the feminist.

    … that was known for obsessing over a MALE frog.

    Priceless. You can’t make this shit up.

    The Brooklyn Museum and its Elizabeth A. Sackless Center should be fumigated and turned into a shelter for homeless men. Instead of a shelter for empowered pigs.

    Last time the King ran into pigs, he dropped some demons into them, and the pigs ran off a cliff.

    At least those pigs had some sense. And a sense of civic duty. ;O)

    Cheers.
