Sexist Monkeys

The BBC news reports on blatant sexual discrimination suffered by Kenyan women in “Monkey misery for Kenyan women villagers.” The article actually uses the term “sexual harassment” in covering the monkeys’ rampages; I hope that its inclusion was tongue in (red) cheek. From the article:

They estimate there are close to 300 monkeys invading the farms at dawn. They eat the village’s maize, potatoes, beans and other crops.

And because women are primarily responsible for the farms, they have borne the brunt of the problem, as they try to guard their crops.

They say the monkeys are more afraid of young men than women and children, and the bolder ones throw stones and chase the women from their farms.

Nachu’s women have tried wearing their husbands’ clothes in an attempt to trick the monkeys into thinking they are men - but this has failed, they say.

“When we come to chase the monkeys away, we are dressed in trousers and hats, so that we look like men,” resident Lucy Njeri told the BBC News website.

“But the monkeys can tell the difference and they don’t run away from us and point at our breasts. They just ignore us and continue to steal the crops.”

In addition to stealing their crops, the monkeys also make sexually explicit gestures at the women, they claim.

“The monkeys grab their breasts, and gesture at us while pointing at their private parts. We are afraid that they will sexually harass us,” said Mrs Njeri.

The article is a goldmine for irreverent commentary, which I in an unusual deferment to good taste will leave to readers. What I find most interesting, though, is how other species—even seemingly unintelligent ones—recognize sex in other species. I have noticed this throughout life with pets. How do they know? For I expect creatures like rodents and parakeets to know better than American womynist professors, but exactly how do they know, even acknowledging that they remain unburdened by leftist twatwash. Very curious, indeed. The world is a fascinating place.
