Tina Brown Says “Wingnut” Women Blow To Feminism. I say, What Feminism?
My NewsReal posty:
Sorry, Tina Brown, but feminism is already dead. And I say, “You’re welcome.” As perpetual children, you self-avowed feminists may not thank us yet. You may continue to stomp and whine and throw your little tantrums, petulantly holding your mouths closed to the icky vegetables known as truth, personal responsibility and self-sufficiency, but one day you will thank us.
See, one day you may live without bitterness and without the irrational feelings of perpetual victim-hood. One day, you too may embrace your gender fully and realize that you already are equal to men. That you are equal, yet different, and that’s a good thing. That will be a nice change, no? Hopeandchange, even!
Tina Brown, the editor of the Daily Beast, spouted her oh-so-insightful and well-thought out ‘conservative women are meany pants and icky’ opinion on Good Morning America today, in a segment discussing the primary wins of many GOP women, including Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina and Nikki Haley, on Tuesday night. I wrote about this yesterday and discussed how the self-avowed “feminists”, also known by me as Femisogynists, were up in arms over these wins.
Like the children that they are, they could only turn to lame attempts to smear conservative women, using Sarah Palin as a scapegoat once again. Geez, lefties. Isn’t it about time you thought of something new? It’s incredibly tiresome. At least try to mix it up a little, keep it interesting? Tina Brown can’t, apparently, she said this: (Via Newsbusters):
TINA BROWN: Yeah, I mean, it was. I mean, in some ways, it’s, again, representation that people are looking for otherness. You know, they’re so disgusted with incumbents, they’re looking for something completely different. And, as it happens, of course, women usually are seen as, you know, an alternative because many more men are in there. But, actually, the only trouble with this one is, it almost feels as if all these women winning are kind of a blow to feminism. Because, each one of them, really, most of them, are, you know, very much, uh, uh, you know, against so many of things that women have fought for such a long time.
Oh, really? I must inform you, Miss Brown, that I am a woman and these women represent the things that I fight for, as a person. To me, there are no women’s issues. I don’t think women are stupid and, therefore, can only focus on made-up, busy work issues like the nebulous “reproductive rights” and faux environmental issues. Women like me are fighting for smaller government and against a Big Daddy government (we, unlike you, don’t feel as if we need “saving”) . We are fighting for the future of our children, alive and unborn, and we want them to know the America we know. We are fighting for freedom, not relying on protected victim status.
Tina Brown went on to say these two gems:
BROWN: Women, too, can be wing nuts, is the point.
…. What really killed? It was so yesterday. It wasn’t just women. It was rich women. That’s the point.”
Oh, well, wingnutty women and rich women. They don’t count, clearly! I suppose they don’t have estrogen nor female parts? In the minds of the Femisogynist left, that doesn’t matter. You see, it’s never actually about women to them, as I’ve said time and time again. It’s all agenda driven. It’s all a way to perpetuate a victim mentality. It’s all a way to actually subjugate the women with whom the left disagrees, in order to further that agenda.
The leftist agenda, which is the femisogynist agenda, is harmful to all – men and women – but has been particularly harmful to women in one aspect. The pushing of the abortion agenda has done more to harm women and motherhood than anything in recent history. The entire pro-abortion movement has demeaned women by diminishing motherhood to the point that it is considered a punishment and a detriment and that a life itself can be an expendable inconvenience.
The sweetest irony is that Sarah Palin has done more to expose that than anyone else has in a long time. She epitomizes this very fact: Women can, and do, have it all. The only people who think otherwise are, ironically, those who claim to be feminists themselves. Thus, the femisogynist “feminist” movement was hoisted on it’s own petard, by exposing themselves with their own reactions to Palin, among others. People now see them for what they are; agenda pushers who are the antithesis of actual feminism. Here is the difference between Femisogynists and conservative women in a nutshell.
In primaries, female candidates didn’t make gender an issue
With victories by several prominent women in Tuesday’s primary elections came the familiar declarations that a “year of the woman” is underway. But in at least five races, something even more remarkable occurred: The candidates’ gender never became much of an issue.
Because it should not be one. There is no need to constantly bring up gender as if that is why they should win. Conservative women know that. They don’t rely on their gender to somehow protect them nor to get them ahead. They are, you know, grown-ups. They rely on themselves and on the love and support of their families and friends, not the government. They embrace their gender and use its strengths to make them the people that they are. They should, and did, win for those very reasons. They won because of the people that they are and for the policies they will strive to set forth.
I said last week that feminists/femisogynists have hammered the final nail into their own coffin. Tina Brown is merely attending the funeral.
