Women of the Year

I don’t find it the least bit ironic during Women’s History Month that a man (Rachel Levine) has been named Woman of the Year by USA Today or that a man (Lia Thomas) has beaten a woman olympic medalist at an NCAA swim meet.

Irony stems from a disconnect between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result. We’re getting what we (allegedly) voted for. What should we expect when, for example, we allow cowardly men to bully women at sporting events?

This is disgusting but not ironic.
