The woke warriors who run Hasbro, maker of the classic board game Monopoly, probably thought they were striking a blow for gender something or other when they announced a new version of the classic game called Ms. Monopoly.
The game changes the rules along gender lines . . . women get more money to start the game and get more money for passing GO.
Perhaps they thought they wold be hailed as truth tellers proving how unfair the capitalist system is to women.
Unlike the classic game, women will collect 240 Monopoly bucks when they pass “go,” while male players will collect the usual 200. It’s “a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men,” the creators said. https://t.co/MwkeaTKBSu— CNN (@CNN) September 10, 2019
But as news of their creation began to leak out, critics noted something else about Hasbro’s woke Monopoly:
Wow.— Lisa Britton (@LisaBritton) September 10, 2019
Hasbro is perpetuating victimhood through a board game.
They’re instilling in young girls that society views them ‘less than’.
The pay gap comes from PERSONAL CHOICES made by women.
…… and they’re calling this game ‘female empowerment’ https://t.co/Tzaqaf0n2t
The criticism continued:
“Ms. Monopoly:” Extra cash when you pass go. And instead of a Get Out of Jail card, women get to play Put ‘Em In Jail cards with false #MeToo allegations against men…then collect multi-million-dollar civil suits & book deals. https://t.co/MbNZLTB8Rh— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 10, 2019
And finally, though it almost doesn’t need to be pointed out, the original Monopoly game doesn’t discriminate just like capitalism doesn’t discriminate:
Uh, yeah…except the original #Monopoly doesn’t discriminate or offer any arbitrary advantages. Every player is equal. #MsMonopoly is an Animal Farm board game.— Greg Scott (@GScottSays) September 10, 2019
I will also point out that HasBRO is the company that makes the game. Very sexist. https://t.co/JdsoKkP5E8
Another woke misfire from the leftist regime that controls culture here in America. Fortunately, there was still an avenue to point out their mistake.
