The vulgarity of women on the left never ceases to amaze me. In this case, Gwyenth Paltrow’s Goop store is offering a 10-ounce $75 candle called “This Smells like my Vagina.”
Before you ask yourself who would buy such a ridiculous thing, Business Insider reported that the product sold out within hours. Seems a lot of people want to know what Paltrow’s vagina smells like.
According to the Goop website, the candle has notes of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar, and should put a vibe of “fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth” into the minds of those who smell it.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to read the reviews. As of today, there were none.
Paltrow is of course the woman who brought us the phrase, “conscious uncoupling,” rather than just saying separation or divorce when she split from former husband Chris Martin.
Then there was the time when the pretentious star talked about its harder being an actress than a mother. “I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”
According to Paltrow, being a mom is so stressful it requires drinking a lot of alcohol. She told Redbook in a 2012 interview, “I drank like crazy [when the kids were babies]. How else could I get through my day?”
She may be narcissistic, but anyone who can sell out a candle with that name in an hour, is probably enjoying a great laugh at all the “little people” who bought it. In fact, Paltrow told Business Insider that the fragrance started off as a joke between her and her professional perfumer.
Paltrow also has a new Netflix series—The Goop Lab—premiering January 24 on some of the pseudo-science holistic wellness she trades in as part of her business.
So though the candle name is cringe, today’s feminists are completely desensitized to the vulgarity they project, so why not a “pussy” candle? After all, this is the same group of women who seem to be obsessed with their own sexuality, proudly wearing their pussy hats and participating in Free the Nipple campaigns.
And let us not forget former stripper Amber Rose, who hosted the first “SlutWalk” in order to create a “completely inclusive space” with a “zero-tolerance policy on all hateful language.” This, of course, was to defend a woman’s right to be vulgarly promiscuous.
In a 2015 acceptance speech for Glamour’s Trailblazer of the Year award, Amy Schumer said “I’m like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a d*** whenever I want.”
Comedian Michelle Wolf, who is known for equating vulgarity with female empowerment is probably the most distasteful feminist. Wolf’s brand of comedy isn’t just in poor taste, it isn’t actually even funny. Discussing coat-hanger abortions and period equity in her Netflix comedy “Joke Show,” isn’t entertaining for those who believe in the sanctity of life.
Sadly, what these women miss when discussing female power is that it need not be vulgar. Rather, women should recognize and embrace the power that comes from being a truly feminine woman.
Femininnity doesn’t preclude independence and self-sufficiency, it owns it. We don’t applaud men for talking incessantly about their dicks, so why are we lauding women with vagina obsessions. #Reignwell
