So now deodorant is a social construct?

Who knew?

….The article was chock-full of enough Third Wave Feminist nonsense to make you bring up dinner.

For example:

…We don’t need aluminum-free deodorant, but the social implications of products that allow women to sweat are good anyway. Deodorants were first sold in the late 1800s, with antiperspirants following shortly thereafter. But it took a bit of time for the concept of masking and/or stopping sweat to take off. Early marketing campaigns, as journalist Sarah Everts has reported, were designed to make women—and they were first marketed just to women—embarrassed about the entire concept of perspiration. A few years ago, Everts dug up sponsored newspaper stories from an early antiperspirant company called Odorono (that expands to: odor-o-no). They had titles like “The most humiliating moment in my life: When I overheard the cause of my unpopularity among men” (spoiler: it was sweat) and “If you long for romance don’t let your dress offend with ‘armhole odor.’ ”….

The diseased minds of the intersectional left are forever seeking grievances. They are literally willing to put up with any kind of stink to be upset.

    Clearly, the Miss America pageant needs to support this. First we did away with the swimsuit competition, now No Deodorant. Miss America, Down with the Patriarchy. Or something.
