    Default Hasbro debuts new feminist version of Monopoly

    Hasbro announced that it has created a pro-feminist version of Monopoly called Ms. Monopoly, where female players start out the game with a monetary advantage over male players.

    Give me a break.

    I first heard about this on Jimmy Kimmel Live either last night or the night before.

    As Kimmel joked... they took the "bro" out of Hasbro...



    The Misplaced Feminism of Ms. Monopoly

    Ms. Monopoly underscores an effort by Madison Avenue to champion feminism as a branding gimmick...



    This week, Hasbro, which sells Monopoly, announced the latest incarnation of the game: Ms. Monopoly. According to the press release.... the new title character, a smiling chestnut-haired woman in a blazer wielding a travel coffee cup, “is an advocate whose mission is to invest in female entrepreneurs.” The company claims that it’s the “first-ever game where women make more than men.” In this version, female players start out with nineteen hundred dollars in their coffers and male players receive a mere fifteen hundred. Women receive two hundred and forty dollars for passing Go, but men are stuck with the same two hundred dollars as in standard Monopoly. In a promotional video, featuring soft piano background music and scenes of girls soldering, sketching, and kicking ass in white lab coats, Hasbro notes that only ten per cent of patent holders are women.

    I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions and comment on this latest kiss on the ass of political correctness.

    We're going off the deep end if you asked me and I hope Hasbro takes a real bath on this idiotic idea.

    I would hope "feminists" would find this offensive.
    Its like saying blacks cant compete for college admissions because theyre black.
