Sonia Sotomayor Goes On Sesame Street And Ruins Every Little Girl's Dream (Watch Video)
Business Insider ^ | 11/13/2012 | Abby Rogers

Posted on 11/13/2012 6:53:43 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor stopped by Sesame Street last week to essentially dash Abby Cadabby's hopes of having a career as a princess.

"Abby pretending to be a princess is fun, but it is definitely not a career," Sotomayor told the pink puppet in a clip that gained prominence on BuzzFeed, the Washington Post, and TIME .

Instead, the justice recommended little girls go to school so they can be a teacher, lawyer, or "even a scientist."

Yeah, a princess got where she was by something other than talent, probably has the IQ of a certain incumbent president, and has never had a real job.

Sorta like Sotomayer.

Shove it Sonia, you’re a bimbo and you know it. Thanks for removing what little respect I had for the law profession.

NEW YORK (AP) - The puppeteer who performs as Elmo on "Sesame Street" is taking a leave of absence from the iconic kids' show in the wake of allegations that he had a relationship with a 16-year-old boy.

Puppeteer Kevin Clash has denied the charges, which, according to Sesame Workshop, were first made in June by the accuser, who by then was 23.

So a supreme court justice (an unqualified nitwit) goes on sesame street in her judicial robes? These pinhead LIBs have no sense of propriety. To top it off she attempts to quash the motivation of little girls everywhere. What a clymer!

She’s (Sotomayor) is just another affirmative action appointee from our affirmative action guy in the White Hut.

Pretending to be a princess is not a career but being a queen can land you one.

The message is a good one. I’m sick of fools, both male and female, that think they’re owed something by others just because they exist. However, they could have picked a better spokesperson. Sotomayor has had everything given to her because of her heritage, just like a princess.

In other words, “Abby, no fat, ugly wallflower like me ever got to be the princess, so I don’t want you or any other girl to have fun, either.”

It saves her having to say to people: "Do you know who I am?"

Abby Cadabby should have told Sotomayor that “dreaming she's qualified to serve on SCOTUS is no different than dreaming to be a princess only the princess dream is less dangerous to America”.

The message is a good one. I’m sick of fools, both male and female, that think they’re owed something by others just because they exist.

The message is a bad one. A little girl's fantasy about being a princess has nothing to do with a sense of entitlement or the idea that she's going to lie around on silk cushions all day ordering people around, and it has even less to do with inner-city entitlement.

When a five-year-old girl says she wants to be a princess when she grows up, she's not talking about some adult image of a princess shaped by history and politics, or even by images of Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge. She is referring to Disney heroines, who are the only princesses she sees regularly.

She means she wants to be beautiful and feminine, like Disney princesses, with long thick hair and gorgeous gowns.

She means that she wants to be spirited and independent, engaging in risky but ultimately triumphant adventures, as Disney princesses do.

She means she wants power, which is something little girls do not have.

She means she wants love and marriage.

There is not one thing in this list of dreams that is in conflict with conservative goals or principles. They're normal female psychological desires, and are not to be discouraged. What has to change as the child matures is her idea of how she is to get these things. Since she's not going to get the gowns, carriage, and loving husband by inheritance, she's going to have to work for them, one way or another. That could mean having a job, starting a business, or just being such a wonderful, loving conservative woman that some fine man will want her to be his wife and the mother of his children.

But to have a homely middle-aged woman dressed in black, a woman who never had that handsome prince, nag little girls about choosing an appropriate career path is disturbing. Do we have to start the pressure in the Sesame Street years? Can't kids go through childhood unencumbered by worries about their careers? The continual drumbeat to Have a career, Work, Perform, Dedicate, Work more, Sacrifice conflicts with the traditionalist belief that it's fine for a woman to be a wife and mother caring for her children.

Wow, post of the month. I have copied to a file so that I have intellectual ammo for the unhappy and lefy feminists I inevitably encounter. Thanks.

What kind of acting was that? She had all the enthusiasm of Ben Stein in the Dry Eyes’ commercials. Couldn’t they have had her be more animated and upbeat? Maybe not; maybe that’s how she is.
