This Is What a Feminist Looks Like

Barb Wire

My apologies. I meant, this is what two feminists look like:

WNBA superstar Brittney Griner — and her WNBA star fiancee Glory Johnson — were both arrested for allegedly attacking each other in Phoenix yesterday … TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to Griner’s home around 4:30 PM on Wednesday . . .

Both women were arrested and booked by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office for assault and disorderly conduct. Griner and Johnson were released around 4 AM on Thursday.

Griner plays for the Phoenix Mercury.

The two got engaged last August and had been planning to get married next month in Phoenix. No word if the wedding is still on. . . .

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Brittney told cops the two had been fighting for days and were having serious “relationship issues.”

As for the specific incident, cops say there were several people at the home when Brit and Glory began to argue — and the fight turned physical.

Cops say Brittney admitted to throwing a dog bowl at the wall — and then the two began fighting.

Glory’s sister eventually called police because people “couldn’t get them pulled apart” and she didn’t want anyone to get hurt.

When cops arrived, officers say Brittney had several cuts — and a bite wound. Glory was bleeding from the lip.

Celebrity lesbian damage control:

WNBA superstar Brittney Griner says her engagement to Glory Johnson is STILL ON … despite their domestic violence arrests this morning … TMZ Sports has learned.

Griner’s attorney Michael Cantor tells us … “The last few months have been an extremely stressful time for Brittney and Glory. They will continue to work through these hardships together.”

As we previously reported, both Griner and Johnson — who’s also in the WNBA — were arrested for assault in Arizona this week after cops say they attacked each other during a heated argument.

The couple has been engaged since last year and are scheduled to get married on May 8th.
Griner’s attorney did not say if the two will be pushing back the wedding date in light of the arrests — but says the two are determined to “handle this family matter.”

Cantor adds, “Glory and Brittney sincerely apologize for the distraction this has caused their families, respective teams, the WNBA, sponsors and fans.”

You will notice that the word “lesbian” does not appear anywhere in TMZ’s reporting about this (alleged) crime, for the same reason that news coverage does not include the word “lesbian” when female teachers molest their female students. That is to say, “lesbian” and “gay” are words that are only ever used by the media in a positive context, or in stories about gays and lesbians being victims of homophobia.

According to the liberal media, all homosexuals are virtuous and innocent and thus, when they commit crimes, the magic words “gay” or “lesbian” are never to be used. This rule was stretched to the limit last year, when Walter Lee Williams, a Ph.D. in anthropology who was “an eminent professor of gender and sexuality studies” at the University of Southern California, pleaded guilty in federal court to traveling the world to pursue sex with boys as young as 9. You see, Professor Williams was co-editor of a 1997 book, Overcoming Heterosexism and Homophobia, and also co-edited the 2003 book Gay and Lesbian Rights in the United States: A Documentary History.

Common sense says: “Hey, there’s a dot here and a dot there and over here’s another dot, so maybe they’re . . . connected?”

In 2015, however, common sense is a hate crime, so feminists — who demand stringent enforcement of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) as a way to punish men — are notably silent about violence against women when this involves two celebrity lesbians. We are not supposed to notice this, just like we are not supposed to notice how prevalent lesbianism is in the world of female athletics. (Really, are there any heterosexual women playing NCAA Division I sports?) Meanwhile, the reality of lesbian domestic violence has some lesbians straining to claim that this isn’t like, y’know, the bad kind of domestic violence that men do. No, what happened with Griner and Johnson “is fairly common and much less likely to include sexual or emotional violence and is not about controlling a partner.”

Also, while male violence against women requires its own federal law with special punitive authority, “Communities, Not Police, Are Our Best Bet for Ending LGBTQ Domestic Violence.” In other words, don’t call the cops when a lesbian is beating up her girlfriend, because that might make the “community” look bad. Remember this 2012 headline?

A Victim of Racism, Sexism, Homophobia and Her Violent Lesbian Ex-Girlfriend

WNBA star Jennifer Lacy was the victim of a frightening attack by her former teammate and ex-girlfriend Chamique Holdsclaw.

Well, how dare you notice that they are both black, female and gay? In terms of feminist “intersectionality,” these women are both oppressed victims, and therefore neither of them can be responsible. Blame the white racist heteropatriarchy!

Nobody has suggested banning crazy lesbians from the WNBA because that would pretty much be the end of the WNBA. Finally, a few inspirational words from Toni Morrison:

“I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back. And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman.”

That’s some Nobel Prize-winning feminist inspiration, my friends!
