So today is some Day Without Women crap, in which always-useless feminists encourage women NOT to go to work. Aren’t they always insulting housewives for staying home from work? I wish they’d get their stories straight.
But I’m sure the working class women who can’t attend any of these women’s rallies because they would lose their jobs for blowing off work will be comforted to know that lazy feminists will drink an extra Starbucks latte in their honor while marching around shrieking about unequal pay for the gender who didn’t actually go to work today. Or that day last month when they went to the anti-Trump women’s rally instead of work (I personally know people who blew off working that Friday in order to travel to D.C.). Gee, all this blowing off work to march around with women dressed as walking labia…
… makes me think it’s actually men who are doing more work for less pay.
Guess who else won’t be sipping Starbucks, or even eating breakfast or lunch today? The millions of American children living in poverty who rely on their schools’ free breakfast and lunch programs.
As you may be aware, organizers of the Women’s March on Washington have called for “A Day Without a Woman,” a one-day demonstration on International Women’s Day (Wednesday, March 8) to include taking the day off work.
Throughout Prince George’s County Public Schools, a high number of school-based and support staff have requested leave for tomorrow, which would compromise our ability to transport students and provide safe, productive learning environments. As a result, schools will be closed Wednesday, March 8 for students. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Please note that our leave requests significantly increased today, leading to this decision.
Based on our policies, PGCPS and the Prince George’s County Board of Education have no political stance on “A Day Without a Woman.” Schools will open Thursday, March 9 on a normal schedule.

I did a little research on Prince County schools to see if it’s the sort of place where the families’ nannies can just run the kids out to Starbucks for muffins and hot cocoa for breakfast:
According to the Washington Post:
The number of students who are eligible to receive free and reduced-price meals while attending public schools in Prince George’s County has gone up in the past year, according to recently released enrollment numbers.
The percentage of students who are eligible to receive free and reduced-price meals, a federal indicator of poverty, rose from 61.49 percent in October 2013 to 64.67 percent this October.
Of the 127,866 students in Maryland’s second-largest school district, 82,696 of the students come from poor families.
Ooh, sorry poor kids! No breakfast for you! No lunch either! Your female teachers and support staff were apparently too busy running about with the Vagina Suit and Lattes Crew to make sure you learn to read, write, or even get to eat today.
Feminsim: bad for working-class women and poor children.
