Nina Burleigh: #WomenAgainstFeminism Is for ‘Pedophiles … Dirty Old Men’ UPDATE: ‘Perverted Rightwing Spite’
Posted on | July 31, 2014 | 99 Comments
Women Against Feminism had, last time I checked, 16,013 followers on Facebook. Its tumblr is constructed of selfies of young women, dressed and posed like ads for DIY escort services, holding up bits of notebook paper on which they’ve scrawled screeds against feminism. . . .
Everything about Women Against Feminism suggests it’s a sock puppet for the aggrieved misogynists and pedophiles of the anti-feminist men’s rights crowd. The main clue is that almost all the women on the site are nubile and posed in ways that fulfill dirty old men’s wildest dreams about pliant young things.
This vile smear is doubly disgusting because of Nina Burleigh’s infamous 1998 comment about the Monica Lewinsky scandal:
“I would be happy to give [Bill Clinton] a blowjob
just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think
American women should be lining up with their
presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude
for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”
So, according to this soi-disant feminist intellectual, it’s perfectly acceptable for a 20-year-old intern to fellate the married middle-aged man who happens to be her boss — Nina Burleigh expressed no complaints about “pliant young things” and “dirty old men” in 1998 — but when women reject feminism’s radical ideology, the only possible explanation, according to Ms. Burleigh, is that these women are sock puppets for pedophile misogynists.
The New York Observer should be ashamed to publish a deranged fanatic as hateful and dishonest as Nina “Kneepads” Burleigh.
UPDATE: The New York Observer‘s current editor, Ken Kurson, is their sixth editor in seven years, and unless Kurson strongly repudiates Nina Burleigh’s reprehensible column, he should be fired immediately. Her deliberate lies are unacceptable.
UPDATE II: The shameless lying hater tells more hateful lies:

Did I mention Women Against Feminism has a popular Facebook page?
UPDATE III: Other than (a) fantasizing about providing oral sex for pro-abortion Democrats and (b) telling hateful lies against feminism’s critics, I’m not sure what kind of “feminist” ideology Nina Burleigh promulgates. However, I’ve recently begun a series of essays about radical feminism called “Sex Trouble”:
- July 28: Feminists Against ‘The Unnatural, Yet Universal Roles Patriarchy Has Assigned’
- July 26: Feminists Worry That Disney Movies Are Making Girls Heterosexual
- July 14: Radical Feminism and the Long Shadow of the ‘Lavender Menace’
Honestly, I had been procrastinating about writing the next long installment in the series, so I’m glad that Nina Burleigh provided this helpful inspiration. Life is good. Hit the tip jar.
