I have a message for the self-styled guardians of womanhood who have decided that Sarah Palin is public enemy No. 1 - please stop talking. You're embarrassing yourselves and women all over the country.
are making otherwise thoughtful, careful, intelligent, tolerant and
modern American women of every political bent look and sound ridiculous.
As a woman myself, I'm begging you to stop. Put the pen down, close out
the blog, push the E! microphone away. Your trash-talking is disturbing
and humiliating. In fact, it's setting back the true cause of feminism -
the advancement of women - far more than your imagined nemesis.
Stop using and abusing Palin to pump up your own overweening egos. You are not the next Sojourner Truth, and Palin is not your next punch line. She's a mother, a governor, a wife and, yes, a real woman, whether you like it or not.
for being sexist toward Palin. First, because I don't think he has
treated her unfairly just because of her gender. Second, because Palin
doesn't need to be rescued; she's capable of defending herself.
the attacks on Palin by so-called feminists cannot be ignored. Many of
the same voices who claimed the right-wing was attacking Hillary Clinton just because she was a strong woman are now attacking Palin not for her beliefs, but for her very gender identity.
Margaret Cho has said that Sarah Palin is "the worst thing to happen to America
since 9/11." She also makes it clear that for her, feminists by
definition must believe what she believes, writing on her blog, "to call
[Palin] a feminist is as laughable as calling evangelicals
'Christians,' " a warm and fuzzy, open-armed double punch that she
continues by crassly suggesting she'd also like to have explicit sex
In a similar conceit, Sandra Bernhard promised that Palin would be "gang-raped by my big black brothers" if she came to Manhattan. Congratulations, Ms. Cho and Ms. Bernhard. You've officially joined the ranks of male misogynists everywhere. (CONTINUES)
