Confusing Feminist(?) Sign Upsets (Triggers?) Women

‘I have a master’s degree in my field. I’m a little bit offended…’

Confusing feminist sign upsets women

(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) An attention grabbing message posted outside a Snoopy’s Hot Dogs restaurant in Raleigh, North Carolina left some customers upset, but most people who read the sign were just confused.

The sign reads, “Women who want to be equal to men lack ambition,” WNCN reported.

At first it seems that the sign encourages women to stop striving for equality with men.

But Snoopy’s manager, Tanesha Meeks, explained that it’s trying to say the opposite: “We strive to be better than men not equal to men. So many women try to limit themselves trying to be equal to a man when at the end of the day [sic] strive and don’t miss out on any opportunity.”

Customer Adrienne Kennedy felt offended, since she didn’t understand the sign’s true meaning, and she almost went somewhere else to eat.

“I am proud to be a woman and I do not feel that I lack ambition,” Kennedy said. “I have a master’s degree in my field. I’m a little bit offended.

“I was really hungry. If it hadn’t been for the fact that I’m hungry I probably would’ve said ‘Oh my God’ and find something else.”

The Snoopy’s in Raleigh has a history with interesting signs.

In 2015, the restaurant posted a message reading, “We wash our hands for our customers, not because of a law.”

The sign responded to comments from Sen. Thom Tillis, R-North Carolina, who said that government shouldn’t force businesses to require employees to wash their hands.

It seems the Snoopy’s management agreed that the government didn’t need to regulate handwashing.

They believed business owners would voluntarily institute handwashing requirements.

Meeks said the currently posted sign should have empowered women, not offended anyone.

But customers said management needs to reword the sign to make it clearer.

“It wasn’t to offend a man anyways because they’re already considered in the world as being great so at the end of the day it was just to give black women, white women, Hispanic women, all types of women the courage to strive to be better in this world,” Meeks said.

    Which reminds me of the cartoon comic some years back of two British women on holidays in the USA. The two were of a somewhat higher class [snooty], while dining on that American staple commonly known as the hotdog, one woman says to the other; “What part of the dog did you get?”

    What is the value of a Masters Degree if you still can’t understand plain language?

      I understood it right off. What’s the big deal? We are getting to be such a land of “snowflakes”. If we want to be treated as equals of men or better, stop the WHINING!!!! Geez! I thought them Southern ladies were made of tougher stuff. Maybe it was not a southerner who was whining about the sign/ What happened to all the steel magnolias? I don’t know. I’m just a lowly northerner type woman. 😉

      • therealworld

        No woman in the south would misunderstand that, must’a been a outa towner

        • Rhiannon122

          I kind of figured so. 😉 You’ve restored my faith!

          • Lynn Johnston

            As I am a Proud Southern Woman I understood it as you Did! If you want to be equal you better be a Machine and do it better

          • therealworld

            Pardon but, I was raised around and have married women who have all been able to exceed most men’s ability in most area’s and they put in equal effort and if they were Extremely Better it was because they were the better person for the task. Southern Women are smart, not like their Liberal counterparts. Liberal women have the idea that each woman should receive the MAX PAY for a position even if they don’t do a good job and they say it’s sexist if they don’t. That sign was clear as the Texas sky.

          • Rhiannon122

            Yep. 🙂 Good for you!

        • Lynn Johnston

          And where are you from?

          • therealworld


          • Lynn Johnston

            Good to hear! I got relatives in Beaumont, Lumberton and in Corpus Christi. I know Real Southern women live there!!

      • Shelby Tomlinson

        I’m a southern peach, and I understood it right away. I even smiled when I read it, but I’m not a snowflake.

        • Rhiannon122

          You sound more like the strong Southern ladies I’ve known! True “feminists”. Not snowflakes. 😉

          • Shelby Tomlinson

            You sound like someone that is intelligent and has a good heart. Thank you.

          • Rhiannon122

            You’re too kind. Thank you.

      Exactly! What good are all the degrees in the world if you can’t get from Point A to Point B without asking for directions? I’d say that when I was going to college almost fifty years ago the dumbest kid in the class (could have been me) would be a valedictorian today.

  • Bill Harrison

    If you attack women you are a scum but women can attack men and that is just great. The left is so hypocritical..

    • Born Again Southern Pride

      I get up everyday thinking, yeah, I’m gonna be better than those *. Because that is what everybody does.

      *place offended category here.

  • Matt B

    Whatever happened to Helen Reddy- I am woman hear me roar. 8 years of Obama and its I am woman watch me melt. His presidency set women back 40 years.

  • novote4obama

    The 1st time I read it didn’t offend me, I got her message, maybe because I worked at a man’s job and I didn’t strive to be equal, I strived to be better at it than they were. I always felt that in certain jobs a woman can do better.

    • Rhiannon122

      Me too. It just gets me that women who want to be seen as equals (or better) than men stamp their feet, hold their breath, or collect their toys and refuse to play anymore or cry (some feminists). You’ll never be taken seriously by other women, much less men, if you keep that up. And you are just annoying!

  • Born Again Southern Pride

    UNITED states of the Offended…

  • R M

    I got the sign before I even read the article and I’m a man. Does that mean that feminist are dumber than a mere man?

    • Alibaba

      Don’t you already have the proof?…

  • Niko

    How can you not know what that sign means (right away) – after reading it. It’s just more proof what the white libretarded scum have done to the people in this country. Imbeciles to left of me, to the right of me, in front of me and behind me!!!!!. 360° of STUPIDITY. What is a grown man to do… As Charlie Brown would say “GOOD GRIEF”.

    • chris VN

      Common core.

      • Niko

        That is an understatement and the biggest part of the education fiasco…

    • mioahu

      Cause she has a masters degree. people like her teach our children, and are mostly leftists, You need a master degree to lack wisdom and be a leftist these days. Grandma had more wisdom than all these people with PhD’s

  • ADRoberts

    A flat out insult to men. I suspect that business will suffer. Do you suppose she owns that business? Oh, and with that name, she surely is a black woman.
    IF the owner is someone else, they should consider firing her to keep from losing their business

    • Frank Budz

      Stop with the indignation already. It doesn’t matter if this woman was purple, color has nothing to do with it. If people choose not to frequent the place it’s no concern of anybody but hers. Don’t let them get under your skin, not worth the time or energy. Life is too short.

      • ADRoberts

        Wrong. Why do you think that so many companies use black actors in their advertisements on TV. Jackson and Sharpton have been making the rounds for decades. Either you do this or we will boycott you.
        Color does not matter to the whites. But it sure matters to the blacks.
        You doubt that? Walk through a black community by yourself at night.
        I am not racist So I will do nothing more than spend my money elsewhere and try to obey II Chronicles 7:14.
        And color DOES matter. The color of a person’s heart.

  • Sherissky

    Why not try and be the best version of yourself? When did it become the norm to degrade men, to feell like a successful women? Ridiculous! If we try to lift each other up and do the best we can, eveyone wins. This snowflake attitude that really started being off the rails 8 years ago and getting worse only hurts ALL of us.

    “Adrienne Kennedy felt offended.” Apparently Adrienne is a typical feminist (raging liberal) because normal people don’t see anything in that to be offended by. Feminists, and other raging liberals are always on the lookout for something to be offended over. However, Adrienne Kennedy’s hunger was evidently much stronger than her hurt feelings.

    • Somanywhiners

      Just goes to show liberals are idiot.

  • stopspending4

    Anyone with half a brain realizes they are saying if you strive to be equal to men, you should be striving to be better than men. why would anyone be confused or insulted. Get a grip. Not everything is racist, sexist, etc.

  • Somanywhiners

    This is a Wonderful message for women.

  • therealworld

    I got it right away. Must be some nitwits that eat there…

  • HDCycle

    Snoopy’s hot dogs are crappy, go to Char Grill if you want awesome comfort food in Raleigh.

  • Norm Heller

    What man would want to be married to a woman who whines so much? These women are a waste of time.

  • Quantum Looper

    Men should be offended, but who cares?

  • Louie Rey

    Apparently they also lack smarts. Even though it’s slightly derogatory and demeaning to men I thought it was very clever and humorous at the same time. I wasn’t offended at all by the sign. Meanwhile, some women, that this sign was meant to support, took offense to it. Like I said, they lack smarts.
