It’s Not Possible to Mock This Enough

Via Joe.My.God., it seems that New York State Senator Marty Golden is branching out from his usual anti-gay rhetoric to help out those poor unemployed women folk get jobs by teaching them how to be ladies.

Later this month, Republican State Sen. Marty Golden’s office is holding a career-development event for women in his southern Brooklyn district teaching them “Posture, Deportment and the Feminine Presence.”

That’s according to a taxpayer-funded mailing being sent out in Golden’s district, which an offended reader passed along. The taxpayer-funded event – presented by a “certified protocol consultant” – is part of a series teaching women in Brooklyn “what’s new in the 21st century as it relates to business etiquette and social protocol.” More details are also available on Golden’s Senate website, including the fact that women in attendance will be taught to, “Sit, stand and walk like a model,” how to, “Walk up and down a stair elegantly” and “Differences in American and Continental rules governing handshakes and introductions.”

I didn’t know that I could *facepalm* that hard. I think my wedding band is lodged in a sinus cavity.

Chris Bragg at City & State reports that the event has been canceled.
