The list of things that outrage feminists seems to grow longer and longer by the minute, with many of the items featured so ridiculous it almost makes you wonder if these folks aren’t really just trolling us all.Then you see them at protests, wearing vagina hats and costumes and throwing soiled menstrual pads at folks passing by and realize they’re deadly serious.
So what has those lovely, cuddly feminists all up in arms now?Remember the MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) we dropped on ISIS?
Yeah, that’s sexist.
And insane.TheBlaze reports, The United States dropped a 22,000-pound bomb on Islamic State forces in Afghanistan Thursday, reportedly killing 36 ISIS fighters. The bomb was the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat.
The bomb, a Massive Ordinance Air Blast weapon, is often referred to as “MOAB.” The acronym led to its nickname “mother of all bombs.”
Liberals were quick to hash out their thoughts on social media, but one criticism of the day’s incident was particularly puzzling.
“MOAB is the epitome of lethal patriarchy,” one Twitter user said:
It's grotesque to call a killing device, the “Mother of All Bombs.” The #MOAB is the epitome of lethal patriarchy.

Others even singled out BBC News and asked them to stop using the term on their broadcast because it was offensive:
Please would you stop using the term `mother of all bombs` on your programme? It is sexist and offensive.

BBC, 'mother of all bombs' is sexist language. Why is sex/gender relevant to size of a bomb? Ask BBC why is some sexism gone but other not?

Thankfully, not everyone in this country has lost their minds:
@washingtonpost Would "Father of all bombs" be equally sexist, or is it just sexist because "mother" is in the title?

Tomahawk missiles were offensive and now mother of all bombs is sexist. If we go to war I hope your PC skills help you in the field

Here’s the irony of all this feminist outrage. The term “mother of all” has always been used to describe something as the best of the best, or the biggest of an item in existence.
Generally, it’s used in a positive manner, not a negative one, thus proving these fine individuals, as usual, have no clue what they’re actually upset about and are just looking for some new cause to add to their hashtag activism repertoire.
Like when a business says “this is the mother of all sales,” it means consumers are in for massive, awesome deals and low prices on goods and services.
If only these feminists would get a clue. Because you know if it were instead “the father of all bombs” they’d find that sexist as well.
