Testing the Limits of Non-Judgmentalism
Laughed my way through this article on a supposed trend in TikTok videos where women put down "Pick-Me Girls". These latter gals are the shot and a beer type, and the women putting them down are annoyed at them for hitting on their boyfriends in a rather unsubtle manner.
What's the problem, you might ask. Well, in today's feminism, you cannot put down women for anything, even for hitting on your boyfriend. It's the equivalent of slut-shaming (reportedly one of the arrows in the Pick-Me Girl's quiver). Fortunately there is one type of person you can put down in today's feminism, and predictably this is where the writer goes:
Pick-me-ism has, in other words, become a never-ending cycle of toxic
behavior that, whichever way you spin it, ultimately leads to women
putting other women down. Instead of criticizing women for liking or not
liking beer, perhaps we should shift our focus to the ways in which
men, consciously or not, encourage and validate pick-me behavior.
