Libertarian activist Theresa "Darklady" Reed drew ire recently after unwittingly stumbling upon the number one misstep that a politically-minded woman can make in America. (Well, the number two misstep, maybe. Number one is not looking like a model in a Sears catalogue.)
When it came time to drap herself in the U.S. flag, she did it literally instead of figuratively…
The photo, originally taken for a calendar of female libertarian politicians but never used, employs a 52-foot-long nylon American flag that Reed took from the Oregon Libertarian Party headquarters…
Reed says she has received some messages of support for the image, which appears on a number of social networks. But veterans have also expressed anger, telling her she is dishonoring a flag that people have fought and died for.
A woman wrapping her unclothed somewhat-overweight body in an American flag?! Gah! According to the unenforceable U.S.Flag Code, the U.S. flag "should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery," so that is a clear violation, and as such this woman deserves every bit of disdain she receives from patriotic Americans.
That said, I don't even want to think about the vitriol that is hurled at these women here. Their lives must be a living hell of constant bombardment with righteous anger and indignity. It makes me cry just thinking of what these poor women must go through on a daily basis at the hands of testosterone-filled America-lovers.
And let's not even think of how much this woman is hated by veterans for her blatant disrespect of Old Glory.
