The Worst Moment For Feminism On The Bachelor Last Night
10:30 am, February 12th | by Sarah Devlin
Tierra was hoping to get a one-on-one date with Sean, but the first of two in St. Croix went to AshLee, who is 32 to Tierra’s 24. Allow me to transcribe what happened next:
Tierra: [In a sing-song voice] The cougar’s back in town!
One of the other girls: The what?
Tierra: [Singing] The cougar’s back in town.
Tierra: [In an interview] AshLee’s got the one-on-one date with Sean. And I definitely considered myself to be in top priority [sic] just because I’m the only one who hasn’t had a date? And AshLee is 32 years old. When I’m thirty two, I wanna be married with kids and have my family set. Why hasn’t she found somebody who she can settle down with? Like, you’re thirty two years old.
As we all know, once a woman turns thirty her skin turns to burlap and her bones to ash, so she better be married by then or else her womb will remain barren forevermore. And as we saw on the episode, once Sean learned what an old crone AshLee was he sent her packing…
Hang on a minute, I’m remembering that wrong! What actually happened was this: Tierra instigated a fight with AshLee that involved her saying something along the lines of “When I’m thirty I want to be married with kids, I don’t want to be sitting around with 20-year-olds, gossipping” and many repetitions of “[My parents] told me that I have a sparkle, and I’m not gonna let you take my sparkle.” When Sean came back to the hotel to find Tierra licking her wounds, instead of introducing her to his sister, which he was planning to do, he sent her packing on the spot. It was amazing, and a total vindication for the crone army of unmarried women over the age of 30. They’re coming for you, Tierra!
