Favor Hamilton Deserves A Medal -- Not Scorn -- For Jumping New Hurdles For Feminism

By MARK MALLARD, Editor-in-Chief

Suzy Favor Hamilton finally won a medal.  Three Olympics failures in which she failed to win a medal have haunted her.  Her last attempt in 2000 included a humiliating fall to the ground in the last 90-meter leg of her race.

Now Favor Hamilton takes home the gold.  She takes home the gold for every bored, for every under loved, for every hot, sexy forty-something wife in America.  Favor Hamilton’s adventure into high class escort service marks the pinnacle of the feminist movement and a firm slap to the face of male hegemony.

For decades, men have enjoyed dalliances while their wives have scrubbed floors on hands and knees.  For hot, forty-something wives like Favor Hamilton the world is still her oyster and with God willing it always will be.  She took back the night and did so with gusto.

In the near term, Favor Hamilton must endure the initial onslaught of criticism with courage.  Once she gets through it she will see that she took her sexual power – even after bearing a child – and used it for female empowerment.

Some say that Favor Hamilton's actions hurt her marriage and even her daughter when she is old enough to learn the truth.  First, her husband – if one can call him that – most likely got what was coming for years of maltreatment and neglect.  Did he ever satisfy her?  Does he measure up as they say?  As for her daughter, when she is old enough she will understand that after her mother set records pumping her legs down the track she broke new ground spreading her legs in Las Vegas hotel rooms.

America needs more, not less, Favor Hamiltons.  If our crop of young women tell us anything, we are well on our way to getting millions of them.
