Where are the feminists ..............?
For fifty years we have listened to feminists whine about their issues , the dissing in the media , sexual exploitation , employment issues , the latest "Me Too ", yet where are they in this latest unheard of amount of disgraceful female disrespect of White House women by comedians etc , and by the media ?
Where Are You Feminists ?.................................................?
Like I am going to come to the rescue of an of "Uncle Tom" even if he is black? Let us make points worthy of anyone beyond puberty, feminism is not just merely defined as "being a woman", it is a set of ideas and principles that generally sail over the heads of rightwinger types.
Yes -As long as those " ideas and principles ".......are on the left and don't involve a conservative woman .
There is no hypocrite worse than the one who claims otherwise.
As far as conservatives are concerned "those ideas" are "Left", by definition.
Yes , I can immediately tell but looking at the white house staff that Trump hates women ......Sarah Huckabee Sanders , Kelly Ann Conway , CIA director , Education sec. , Top advisors .?
Oh thats right ,they are real individual women leaders and not the group so popular to liberals ?
Are those ideas,truly, feminist in nature? Do they honestly push forward the idea of equality? I say no. They are typical rabble rousing, put upon me, look at me I'm the fist raising minority arguments.
When we look past gender in order to make our decisions we are truly free. As women. Other minorities need to look beyond their minority status in order to achieve the same goal.
A REAL woman of strength is a sight to behold , except I suppose for the group thought ideology of the "all inclusive left " , just don't wander outside of that safety group box and become an independent individual ?
Like Kelly Ann Conway for instance .
Feminists only support women they've duped into believing far left wing extremist ideas. In other words, if they can't view a woman as some sort of victim,or convince a woman that she is some sort of victim of society, they simply do not care about them.
The term feminist really doesn't define truly liberated women. It defines a group who toe a line determined by those in charge. Basically, women who can't think for themselves and have decided to follow the lead of other women, not men. Truly liberated women can see the hypocrisy, can see how denigrating another woman is demeaning to all women, and wish these catty voices would just go away.
That is the opinion of one who would describe herself as a feminist, prior to the most current devolution of the term.
I used to support feminists movements.
Not much today, many of their commands are unrealistic.
Wow , attitudes like that , apparently all of your wives vote as you tell them to do ?............:-]

Feminists judge people by their actions, not their gender.
Gotta go with some of the others; while it used to be different, it has become common to judge people by how well they conform to the feminist "party platform". As a group, feminists are no different than any other vocal group, whether democrats, republicans, environmentalists, health groups, conspiracy theorists or any other group of people defining themselves (and others) by how well they conform to the group.
That might be true. Can you give an example?
Horse was talking about "White house" women. There is a reason these women are not respected by some people, and it has nothing to do with their gender or with feminism. Horse seems to think that feminists should "like" successful women just because they're successful.
I would doubt that a real, vocal and active, feminist would "like" a successful woman, for they have worked within the existing system and used it to produce success. They should be changing the system instead, to promote and grow the superiority of women.
(Do you get the idea I don't have much use for what I perceive "feminism" to have become today?)
Just because you doubt it doesn't make it true. I listed two conservative women I admire and I consider myself to be a feminist.
You didn't provide the examples I was hoping for...
ahorseback did. I don't really know the "women of the white house" or whether they consider themselves feminists.
Of course my doubt doesn't make things true. I only give my opinion, based on MY perception of what a "feminist" is today, which I feel is a far cry from what it was a while back. IMO it has become politicized into a "movement" which has little to do with equality and a lot to do with supremacy. Which I'm confident you will disagree with, but then it's only what I see from the movement.
What I think is that there are catty women of all conformities who don't recognize true feminism but real independent women are free of lockstepping liberal group thought . Feminists are independent , strong , outspoken and even traditional . What they aren't however , is emotionally thirteenish , so blind of true leadership quality as to render them mean spirited and petty .
And yes , even Trump's white house is made up of some strong feminists .
-Kelly Anne Conway
-Sarah Huckabee Sanders
-Many others who don't have to be mindless followers to prove their strength and independence.
Yes, they are independent, horse. they don't let Spanky tell them what to do and say, no sir!
That's the funny part about the truth Randy , No one HAS to tell another how to address the only truth there is . Why actually does that extremely simple fact elude you on the left ?
Oh you're speaking of Conway's "alternate facts" ! Did you even watch that BS?
The only alternative facts are the historically and admittedly fake news media today . I actually just love watching Conway lay waste obstructionist and liberal media questions on every program she's on .
That woman cannot be beaten .
Admit it , you're Pravda media is jealous ?
Conway is an idiot who cannot answer a question with a straight answer on any show but Fox. Several media sources don't bother to invite her on their shows because she never answers anything asked of her. Come to think of it, it seems to be a practice of Spanky fans.
Ask Conway's husband if she's precise in her answers!
I subscribe to the traditional definition of feminism, which I don’t believe includes “becoming outraged every time a woman insults another woman.”
I think saying that we need to coddle women because comedians make jokes at their expense suggests that women need to be treated with greater sensitivity than men - because let’s be honest men often get jabbed much worse than women do but we don’t make it about gender politics.
Calling someone a see-you-next-Tuesday doesn’t really have much to do with feminism as far as I’m concerned, I think it’s more an issue of whether it was appropriate or not in general and if someone would have called foul on the same being said about Chelsea Clinton then yes, they should say the same in regards to Ivanka.
Personally I’m pretty unbothered, if someone said it to me I’d laugh it off and commend myself for my ability to get under their skin to such an extent.
I might raise an eyebrow at something a comedian says but that's the extent of my personal outrage, and that includes Roseanne's recent remarks. That said, her employer has every right to fire her if they believe she has crossed their line. Bill Maher was previously fired from a network for similar readons.
I don't see how any Spanky fan has the nerve to criticize anyone for calling names. They knew their choice for POTUS was crude and never gave a thought for those he was insulting. Their glorious leader set the bar for insults long before he took office.
There is a far greater difference between Trumps having a lack of any political correctness in his nerve center and the phoniness of blaming him for what ? Name calling ? Name calling is the first calling of your activist left ; always has been . Feminism arose from the sixties in America , the greatest era of "name calling" known to modern man . Hence the DNA difference within and between Liberalism and Conservatism .
Trump ,"Set the Bar " for name calling hardly ! Continue that honored tradition in politics , academia and media , sure .
Can you name another POTUS who called his antagonists--and his own party members--insulting names as much as Spanky has? I'll be waiting....
Since when did name calling become illegal for a POTUS Randy ? When liberals decide they have exclusive rights to ALL name calling ?
Is THAT the next impeachable offense?
Didn't understand the question, eh horse? Dan, get your color crayons ready as horse is ready for another picture.
No one has claimed it was illegal, horse. Reading between the lines again? Re-read my question..
It doesn't matter if every potus before Trump was a pope Randy , Where does it say in the constitution , the bill of rights , the presidential powers that name calling is impeachable , illegal , even previously unheard of ?
I don't particularly like his manners either but does it mean that that becomes a national crisis , another impeachable offense ?
Is just might be possible liberals are becoming more blanky sensitive to criticism by the POTUS ?

Why do so many confuse Feminism with Misandry?Misandry is the hatred of men, feeling that men are beneath women. Feminism is not that. Although some radical feminists may feel that way, the definition of a feminist is "the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political,...

I am really curious about what other women think; because I've only recently started paying attention to politics since the media is ramping up Trump so much, lately. Before that, I'm sorry... I was not even SORT of paying attention to any other candidate from any party. Hillary is my girl, and she...

The Feminine Mystique, which aptly described the malaise of the college educated, upper middle class suburban woman of the late 1950s-early 1960s. Ms. Friedan was astute in describing the anomie of the educated housewife subverting her intellect and talent to conform to a rigidly gender-based...

In discussions here on HubPages, a common topic arises when discussing the media. In most circles, people believes what they read and see on TV. That is why we Conservatives don't trust the media for providing the truth...because we know who we are and the media is mis characterizing conservatives...
