Feminism, Careerism, Lesbianism

Posted on | April 12, 2012 | 128 Comments

Still a month to go before “National Offend a Feminist Week,” but some folks can’t wait, eh? I’ll save the lecture for the updates, but first let’s aggregate today’s headlines (via Memeorandum and Twitter):

Ann Romney Fights Back: Debuts on Twitter
to Counter DNC Advisor’s Insult

ABC News

Rosen apologizes over comments against Ann Romney

Democrats declare war on women?
Update: Frequent White House visitor?

Hot Air

Hilary Rosen, Frequent White House Visitor
National Review

Team Romney To Obama:
You Started The War Over Women


Conservatives Attack Hilary Rosen
For Raising Children As A Lesbian

Think Progress

New Tone alert: Libs attack
Ann Romney as ‘cunt,’ ‘bitch,’ ‘whore’


Once again demonstrating the enduring truth that, if it weren’t for double standards, Democrats would have no standards at all.

UPDATE: Remember last month when the Southern Poverty Law Center added “misogyny” to its Hate Group list? Not an accident.

UPDATE II: You now what we need here? Some good old-fashioned male chauvinist objectification:

Who Is Hotter? Hilary Rosen or Ann Romney

Brilliant. Which reminds me . . .

Hands off my “Ann Romney bikini” Google-bomb!

UPDATE III: What the hell? Liberals consider this an “apology”?

Spare me the faux anger from the right who view the issue of women’s rights and advancement as a way to score political points.

Rosen is defending, not apologizing for, her hateful attitude toward traditional wives and mothers. And please tell me who spent weeks trying to “score political points” on this issue, huh?

UPDATE IV: What started it all:

Maybe Rush Limbaugh should call Hilary Rosen a “slut,” just for the pure fun of it. (BTW, is that her maiden name?)

     Her only object is to derail the discussion away from what filthy scum of the earth Obama supporters are.

    Notice that Anamika’s entire purpose has been to divert the subject away from what a nasty wretch Rosen is, what lying little punk Jay Carney is, and what a lowlife corrupt slimeball Obama is.

    I doubt she actually has even that constructive a purpose. I think gigi pegged it earlier.

    RSM writes, “Maybe Rush Limbaugh should call Hilary Rosen a “slut,” just for the pure fun of it. (BTW, is that her maiden name?)”

    Seems to me that whenever a man gets angry with a woman there are always labels of whore or lesbian hollered out.

    Come on guy, I know this can’t be typical of you. Surely just a lapse which we all have.

    I pray to overcome my own stupidity every day but every day, being a creature of habit, I have to be stupid again to overcome it.

    If they end up ‘firing’ her, she’ll make out like Van Jones did.

    They took good care of him.

    For now she is one of his greatest assets, but this may change.

    Like I said: the trap has been set (and that also means: I have little confidence that it won’t be walked right into).

    The word for the day is: “victimization”.
    The phrase for the day: identity politics.

    And no, both sides are playing them — one just has more experience at it than the other and it will not be so held against them, as everyone knows they do it.

     Tut tut, Anamika, tut tut!

    It’s not so much that we are are angry with Rosen; such loutish behavior is to be expected from the likes of her, and her ilk (e.g., you).  Nay, given Obama’s situation (i.e., a dwindling chance at re-election, we are pissed, at him, for pulling the pin so early, thereby insuring a longer and uglier campaign than everyone had anticipated.  Rosen is but Obama’s agent on this one.

    Tut tut, Anamika!  Sometimes the mentally ill will be forgiven much.  Tut tut!

    Every day spent talking about Ann Romney is another day spent not talking about the piss poor economy and the abysmal unemployment record.

    What’s the real record?  something like 16,17 % now?

    I think it’s already been proven that Rosen is a whore for the democrat party.  

    Does saying it out loud make it any less of a fact?

    They attacked a Palin’s baby.One thing I discovered when my wife was pregnant is that some people went out of the way to be nice, but others were deliberately hateful to her (that did not know her).  After a while I suspected it was because she had less of a chance to defend herself being pregnant.Yeah, its that evil. “Ann Romney’s weak and on the ground. Kick her in the head!” is the mindset.  Its sadistic and cowardly.

    So in answer to my (much) earlier question it is in fact appropriate to call Rosen an ignorant slut despite the fact that her name isn’t Jane.
