PAT: International Women's Day I guess is kind of like the Day Without An Immigrant. They're trying to give us a day without a woman to see how much we should appreciate -- I already appreciate women. I love women.
JEFFY: Me too.
PAT: I have one in my house, who is -- who I'm pretty fond of.
PAT: In fact, there's four. Two of them are out on their own and out in their own houses now. I mean, the Day Without Immigrants should be renamed the Day Without Illegal Immigrants. Because that's a great day. We should do that every day. Let's -- let's have every day be the Day Without Illegal Immigrants, and then everything would be as it should be. The Day Without Immigrants, nobody wants that. I mean, I don't know what the point of -- almost everyone I know, literally everyone I know is for legal immigration. So they leave off the illegal part, but that's what it's really about with the Day Without An Immigrant thing.
PAT: And actually the Day Without An Immigrant thing just means less traffic in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
STU: I will say, I did not notice any reduction in traffic today.
PAT: You didn't? Oh, today. Yeah, no, today.
STU: Today. So I don't know if there's no women that work in Texas. Or maybe people in Texas think this is really dumb.
PAT: I hope so. I hope so.
STU: I guess is the second one. But, yeah, I was -- I did not notice. In fact, it seemed like there was more traffic than usual today. Maybe guys were like, you know what, I'm going to go in just because I don't think any of those women will be there. I mean, that's what sexist men are like, right?
PAT: Yes, yes.
STU: That's what I heard. No, it's sort of a really silly idea. Again -- there are people, a lot of them, looking to ban illegal immigration. I know of no one who is looking to ban women. I think there's a zero -- there's a 0 percent level for banning women in America.
PAT: Well, maybe not ban women, Stu. But there's certainly a war on them.
STU: Is there?
PAT: Yeah. And I guess today would be a cease-fire because they would be around to shoot at today. The perception is they make, what, 78 cents or 87 cents on the dollar for every man or whatever. And I don't know how many times that has to be debunked. Even the Washington Post has debunked that nonsense every year since 2012, when this first started to become such a big issue again. And Obama used the War on Women to try to bash Mitt Romney over the head with it.
And so, you know, when you compare apples to apples, instead of apples to oranges, men and women make about the same. And in some fields, women make more than men. But I think that's what this is about, the perception that they don't make as much, that they don't have the equal rights, all of those things.
STU: Is it? I kind of get the sense that it's just Trump-related. I get the sense that because Donald Trump has said a couple of offensive things about women and they're just taking -- despite the fact that, again, he's offered a 600 billion-dollar maternity leave.
PAT: Right. Right.
STU: By the way, something Barack Obama did not push hard. He did talk about it a couple of times. He's doing a lot of things in that realm as well. His daughter is obviously big on women's rights and likes these larger programs. So it seems as if at some point, some of that stuff could be reality, if women didn't -- I mean, constantly -- seemingly try to antagonize Donald Trump. You know, again, I understand that we are just on teams now.
STU: I think that's just where this comes from. They don't care what policies he's promoting. They just say, well, he's evil. The new health care plan does look like it would defund Planned Parenthood if passed as constructed at this point.
PAT: You mean a private agency might have to raise their own funds and not take mine and your money? What?
STU: Yeah. I know. It's crazy. It's crazy. That could be part of it I guess.
PAT: Yeah, it probably is.
STU: They're not going to like everything the guy does. But I think it's more about his personality more than anything else.
The women's pay thing -- remember, the Democrats had the House, the presidency, and a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and did nothing about this issue.
PAT: Super majority.
STU: They did a giant zilch. What did they pass? The Lilly Ledbetter Act or something. Remember that thing? And they bragged about that for years.
PAT: We passed the Lilly Ledbetter Act. Oh, I don't know what that is, but nice job. That's really good.
STU: Yeah. Is that a Pearl Jam song?
PAT: Yes. Yes.
STU: Okay. So I get that -- that they're going to -- you know, I think the standard response to any Republican in the way that we have our politics right now is just to protest anything that they do.
PAT: Lilly Ledbetter was passed.
Remember that song? That was really good.
STU: I do. I do. I'm actually really interested in the -- the new symbol of international of feminist protest that I hope you guys are on top of. It is -- it's basically the diagram of a woman's lady parts.
STU: And then it's flipping you off.
STU: I don't know how to describe it. Jeffy, how would you describe this exactly?
PAT: Yes. The hoo-ha. And part of the hoo-ha has . . the fallopian tube just comes up and flips you off.
JEFFY: That's fantastic.
PAT: Nice. That's very classy.
STU: First of all, there's a site writing about this. It says how Jezebel -- the website -- unknowingly created an international symbol of feminist protest. The author of the article Jezebel.
So they've now said that they created this. And it's an international symbol. But I love this because the reason they created it is because they wanted women to take a stand I guess. And they were discussing how women were taking a strong feminist stand by saying F you to the CDC about drinking while pregnant.
They will not live under your guidelines about staying away from alcohol while pregnant. Darn you.
JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.
STU: And if you try to squash a woman's right by not allowing her to get plastered in the eighth month or the third month or the fifth month --
JEFFY: Whatever month, Stu.
STU: -- right, whatever month! Then you are a monster. And a horrible, horrible violation of women's rights.
JEFFY: That is amazing.
STU: What a great story to launch a movement on. We want the right to be able to get sloshed when we've got a kid inside.
PAT: Which, by the way, they have. It's just that most women care about their babies inside the womb and don't.
STU: Yeah. Yeah.
PAT: But there's no law that says you can't drink when you're pregnant.
STU: Right. That's why you have the signs everywhere. Guys -- we would request that if you're pregnant, you don't have nine shots of tequila every evening in ever restaurant. Because I go to classy restaurants obviously.
But they do have that all the time. Like the warning for alcohol. One of the main ones they would post or put on a bottle of alcohol is pregnant women should not consume this product because of, you know, some side effects. It's not necessarily a good thing for the baby.
You know, there are obviously parts of -- there's lines to that. But it's still an amazing thing that you launch an international symbol of women's protest on the back of an article about how you should be able to say F you to the CDC while trying to stop you from drinking while pregnant.
PAT: I don't even recognize our dimension anymore.
We've slipped into a new dimension. It must be one of the 28 different dimensions that Neil Patrick Warren matches people on eHarmony.com. I don't recognize it. I really don't. It's unbelievable. You know what we should do is organize an international day without white men. And every white man just stay home. Let's get some appreciation there.
