AN Icon for The Progressive Age

Miss Piggy, a recurring and beloved character in Jim Henson’s “Muppets” universe, has received a Sackler Center First Award from the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.

Previous honorees include Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Toni Morrison, retired Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O’Connor and Muriel Siebert, the first female trader on the New York Stock Exchange.

“This week moi is being honored — and deservedly so,” Miss Piggy explained in a Time editorial “… Isn’t it wonderful? Isn’t it about time?”

“She is definitely her own self,” Steinem said. “She isn’t trying to be either totally masculine or totally feminine, she’s human.” (WP)

She’s a MUPPET!  (I’ve loved the muppets since the 1970s by the way but a Feminist ICON, this a punk’d right?)

So I guess she’s the first non-human, fictional character created by men, written and performed by men as a Feminist Icon that go around karate chopping people and acting like a Diva! Oh, and the love of her is a Frog, from a swamp!

Wow! are the feminists desperate for an Icon, or do normal humans just not measure up to their Leftist standards anymore?

Miss Piggy is a fictional character. She is a puppet, made of fabric, incapable of original thought. Her original Muppeteer was Frank Oz, and she’s been portrayed by Eric Jacobson since 2002. “Her” first movie and TV show were both written by two men. While she’s certainly a strong-willed character, she’s not real. (Townhall)
