PCG Writes of "Sissy Ratings for Sisi"

Page 4 of the October 28, 2016 issue of PCG's Trumpet Weekly containing the following sexist pun.
Sissy ratings for Sisi: A poll published on October 23 revealed that the approval rating for Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi dropped 14 percent over the course of two months. The poll was conducted by the Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research. Sisi’s approval rating fell from 82 percent in August to 68 percent this month. According to the poll, price increases have angered many Egyptians. The country’s inflation rate of 14 percent is at a seven-year high. One civil servant told Reuters that prices were rising daily. He said, “This situation will push people to do bad things.” There are rumors that Egyptians will protest over these economic conditions on November 11.
So a poll suggests President Sisi has less support and some writer in Edmond chose to refer to these lower polling figures as being somehow "sissy". What must the women in PCG think having themselves being equated with lower poll figures like that?

  1. No journalist wanting to be taken seriously would use that term. It's very passe, and similar to the verbiage Mark Armstrong seems to prefer. The only individuals who might be attracted to it would be those who self-identify as red necks.
