If you saw the latest trending feminist tattoo on the street, would you have any idea what it means? Liberal protesters are often difficult to understand, and this latest anti-Trump trend is a mind-boggler. Can you spot the hidden message?
Thanks to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, feminists have a new rallying cry, though it requires knowledge of the background story and history to truly understand it.
Many are familiar with the running feud between Senator Elizabeth Warren, the Democrat from Massachusetts, and President Donald Trump. During the Election of 2016, Trump referred to her as “Pocahontas,” a reference to her alleged misrepresentation of herself as a Native American. Naturally, liberals and feminists were outraged over Trump’s comments.
More recently, Warren was warned, on the Senate floor, not to read a letter that impugned the reputation of fellow Senator Jeff Sessions. The document, written by Coretta Scott King, accused Sessions of abusing his power to intimidate black people and prevent them from voting in the 1980s.
In a heated discussion during a Senate meeting, McConnell informed Warren that she was in violation of Congressional rules and told her to sit down. As reported by CNN, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted,” he said, enraging feminists.
With a rallying cry in place, the tattoo craze is now underway. Take a look:

The snowflakes are an interesting touch, but if you saw this one the street, would you get the reference? Not likely.
One woman says that she is “bleeding for the cause.” That is a bit dramatic, don’t you think?

Some of the tattoos are more subtle.

Evidently, the craze is picking up steam. Reuters described a Minneapolis tattoo shop overwhelmed with demand for the tattoos:
The tattoo has proven so popular that the Brass Knuckle Tattoo Studio is booked for the month and temporarily ceased taking new appointments.
“Every single women has had a Mitch McConnell or 10 or 20 in her life trying to tell her how to be and what to do,” said Nora McInerny, a 34-year-old author and blogger who triggered the tattoo trend with an accidental public Facebook post.
“He said that to insult her, and really he just pointed out a fantastic trait of hers.”
So, when you see one of these tattoos on the street during your daily life, knowing what it means, you’ll have the choice to comment on it or just keep walking. Either way, one thing is for certain, it’s a nice way for the liberal snowflakes to make themselves so easily recognized by others. Unfortunately for them, should they come to their senses, this isn’t as easy as taking a safety pin off of their shirt.
