Cat Fight

It seems much of the aggression towards Sarah Palin comes more from women than men. Why is that? Afterall, she's a feminist in the truest sense of the word...a woman who by her own abilities has risen to the top. Unfortunately, many don't see it that way...except this current Democrat and former editor-in-chief of Ms. magazine:
"Palin is being pilloried by the inside-the-Beltway Democrat feminist establishment. (Yes, she is anti-abortion. And yes, instead of buying organic New Zealand lamb at Whole Foods, she joins other Alaskans in hunting for food. That's it. She is not a right-wing nut, and all the rest of the Internet drivel—the book banning at the Library, the rape kits decision—is nonsense. I digress.) Palin's role in this campaign was to energize “the Republican base,” which she has inarguably done. She also was expected to reach out to Hillary Clinton “moderates.” (Right. Only a woman would get both those jobs in either party.) Look, I am obviously personally pro-choice, and I disagree with McCain and Palin on that and a few other issues. But like many other Democrats, including Lynn Rothschild, I'm tired of the Democratic Party taking women for granted. I also happen to believe Sarah Palin supports women's rights, deeply and passionately."


  1. She is not a feminist in the truest sense of the word. By not supporting a woman's right to choose, she contradicts the ideals of feminism.

  2. I am old enough to feel that the term feminist has been hijacked by extremists. How about a feminist that understands that women come in many shades of gray. I would no more lump all men together, than all women. The ideals of feminism allow women to be individuals, with many different beliefs.

  3. If feminism has been reduced to one issue, then feminism is dead.


No profanity, keep it clean.
