If ever you find yourself having eaten something that you need to vomit up quickly I can recommend a recent article in Time Magazine that you can find by clicking on the image below.
No surprise then, that the sycophantic piece features that pair of self-absorbed mediocrities, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The cover photograph shows the couple carefully positioned to make a statement. Meghan is standing in front and Harry, playing a subordinate role, supports her from behind.
The really nauseating stuff however, is the puffery written by José Andrés that reveals the total lack of self awareness of Meghan and Harry. It was so bad that some have wondered if the article could even be a parody? Of course, it couldn’t because neither Harry nor Megan have anything approaching a sense of humour. Nobody with any sense of irony would consent to this sort of self indulgent crap.
So, where does the toxic-feminism come in? Well, Meghan, we are informed, ‘has long been active in humanitarianism‘ and she shows this by being a ‘powerful advocate for women and girls‘. Putting aside that it is for other people to judge if she is a powerful advocate, being an advocate for women and girls means you only have an interest in about half of humanity. Just in case you think this was a mere verbal slip elsewhere is stated that ‘they (Harry and Meghan) give mental health support to Back women and girls.’
There is a certain sort of self-righteous person who thinks that showing compassion to women and girls is more suggestive of virtue than showing compassion to everybody regardless of biological sex. Meghan is exactly that sort of person.
