I blogged, yesterday, about a politically turbocharged ad, which NRA gun nuts have shamelessly crafted for the express purpose of kissing Donald J. Trump’s ass… i.e., to help get said ass re-parked in the Oval Office for 4 more years. Or will that actually wind up being for an UnConstitutional 25 more years? I suppose only time will tell, huh?
Anyway, my having seen the ad only a couple of times, I was discussing it only from memory and, as such, I wound up incorrectly recalling the off camera announcer’s condescending voice as being male… wound up calling “him” out for mansplaining to the NRA’s main targeted audience… i.e. the women they intend to fear monger and demean.
Soon afterwards, I discovered that the gender of that ad’s announcer, in actuality, is female.
A sure sign my memory is falling me?
Or perhaps not.
I cannot help but believe that that ad’s overall, overpowering, odious vibe… i.e., the female announcer’s tone of voice, itself, had… at least to me… sounded too much like a mansplaining man.
Then again, why would it not? Consider the misogyny of those who breathed the hydrogen sulfide* into this ad.
I do deem it possible for women, employed by sexist men, to mansplain to women.
But, let’s momentarily set aside what I think…
How would you diagnose my blogging boo-boo? The NRA’s H₂S plume or my brain fart?
