THE WEEK IN PICTURES: INT’L WOMEN’S DAY EDITION
Thursday was International Women’s Day, which sounds like something Austin Powers, the International Man of Mystery, would have thought up. What—just one day? Blacks get an entire history month. This sounds like the beginning of a bad Jewish mother joke that ends: “Never mind, I’ll just settle for one day.” And I have a further confusion: if gender is a social construct, isn’t having a “Women’s Day” problematic? Whatever, the obvious Trumpian response is to have a National Women’s Day. And by the way, today is Chuck Norris’s birthday, so you can already guess who our gun guy for the week is going to be.
