Despite having 50 years to let it go, feminists and progressives are still fuming at the flag the men of NASA chose to plant on the Moon.
“It’s an outrage,” Elizabeth Alpert told The Glorious American. “That horrible flag is what’s holding women back from our own Moon adventures. Seriously, most women are unwavering rule followers and we would have probably gone if not for that flag!”
Elizabeth is of course referring to the infamous “No Girls Allowed” flag that was promptly planted on the surface.
While many women are angered with the flag, the reception is quite the opposite among men. Today only 9% of men say the flag was an insensitive choice while 91% maintain the instructions on the flag are working and it should remain.
To makes matters worse, the 50-year anniversary has brought some attention to the original exchange moments before the planting.

[Mission Control] “No! Try it again, like we said!”
