Gloria Steinem puts the Feminist Movement to death

By 19 Comments 2,472 views



The feminist movement is dead. It died at the hands of Gloria Steinem. Cause of death was political strangulation.

Gloria Steinem had made a name for herself for purporting to be a voice for women’s rights beginning in the 60’s and 70’s. She was an icon for women for a long time but has repeatedly compromised her alleged principles for politics and her biases finally overtook her.

Limbaugh’s “feminazi” term has never been more appropriate.

I began to loathe Steinem for her painful hypocrisy in the 90’s when she (and HIllary) went Tammy Wynette during the Bill Clinton Presidency. She stood by her man Bill despite his chronic abuse of women. She went mum while the press pounded Paula Jones. Clinton ally James Carville said “If you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.” Steinem said nothing. She let Evan Thomas call her a “just some sleazy woman with big hair coming out of the trailer parks” without any challenge or defense.

Then, when Kathleen Willy accused Clinton of groping her on the day her husband died Steinem asserted that Clinton was entitled to a freebie.

“The truth is that even if the allegations are true, the President is not guilty of sexual harassment. He is accused of having made a gross, dumb and reckless pass at [Kathleen Willey] during a low point in her life. She pushed him away, she said, and it never happened again. In other words, President Clinton took “no” for an answer…”

The first grope, first assault, the first rape- they don’t count and long as it doesn’t happen again. What an interesting standard that would be for criminal law. How about the first bullet? How about the first murder?




Steinem’s moral compass has rusted considerably since then to the point of being inoperable now. She defends Barack Obama despite his sucking up to Muslim nations which stone women to death for mere accusations of adultery:

Bill Maher spoke with iconic feminist Gloria Steinem tonight about a cause he thinks more feminists should care about: radical Islamic law.

He brought up how horribly women are treated in the Muslim world and asked why it isn’t a bigger feminist issue. Steinem argued that it actually is, pointing to feminists in Muslim nations attempting to push reforms.

She said that “all monotheism is a problem,” but Maher jumped in to say that Islamic nations are particularly horrible to women and bad on women’s rights.

He said, “It would seem that Sharia law in 40 countries should be the cause.”

Then Steinem jumped the shark. She suggested that young women who aren’t lock-step in support of Hillary Clinton

and are lean more toward Bernie Sanders are supporting Sanders to “chase boys.”

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem has drawn the wrath of the Twitterverse for suggesting that young women supporting Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign are doing so to gain the attention of men.

“When you’re young, you’re thinking, ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,’” Steinem told Bill Maher Friday night on the comic’s HBO show “Real Time.”

Maher leapt right on her comment. “Now if I said that, ‘Yeah, they’re for Bernie because that’s where the boys are,’ you’d slap me,” he said.



Madeline Halfbright also came down on women who dared to challenge the Politburo line. In fact, there would be a special place in hell for women who didn’t vote for Hillary:

Attempting to sway young women to support Hillary, Albright said, “We can tell our story about how we climbed the ladder and a lot of you younger women don’t think you have to — it’s been done — it’s not done and you have to help. Hillary Clinton will always be there for you.

“And just remember: there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other,” she said

Young women in New Hampshire aren’t buying this brand of feminism:

Young women in New Hampshire were offended by the way Hillary Clinton uses her gender to garner support, an MSNBC survey revealed Friday.

When MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall asked young female voters about Hillary Clinton’s claim on Wednesday that she is not an establishment candidate because she is a woman, they responded negatively.

One of the respondents said that she did not like how Clinton assumed that her feminism was identical to the feminism of all women.

“I also am a woman. I also face discrimination as being a woman. Her feminism does not represent my feminism, and I think it’s really important to differentiate that,” one young woman said. Her complaint is a common one among young women and reveals a generational divide within the Democratic Party.

Another respondent said that Clinton’s gender does not automatically make her the best candidate


One would have thought that feminism was about empowerment to think for one’s self and make one’s own choices and not have to toe the dictated line. One would think that real feminist icons would respect those choices.

Apparently not. Feminism is dead, but then I never really believed it was anything other than a branch of liberal politics. Now we see that if you don’t march in the proper line, you’re just silly little girl who can’t think for herself.

    Feminism is just another liberal ISM. The whole movement sent to chase its tail about abortion and harassment. Made more women miserable than lifted them. Made men miserable as well, watch what you say, if you compliment a woman that she looks nice in the new outfit, innocently as it was said could be taken the wrong way and you end up in the HR office for questioning.
    Those women who opted to become domestic engineers were the poor oppressed under achievers, obviously controlled by tyrant husbands or it was their bras cutting off circulation to their brains, burn those damn things.
    Now the draft, thanks Gloria, please please please quit helping me.

    Feminism is alive and well in those with a brain. Like those on the right who believe the lies of the corporate right, they’ve squandered woman’s rights as well.

    @Greg: oh please mansplain it to me. Tell me how good it is that our daughters will need to sign up for the draft soon. How its ok for the feminazi to bad mouth women making a political choice all by themselves. Dont forget the part with the Mary Tyler Moore show.
    And if the left agenda isnt a religion why does Ms. Notsobright say there is a “special” hell for me? Sign me up for the short bus.

    ” Dont forget the part with the Mary Tyler Moore show.”
    Wait, what? Don’t diss Mary Tyler Moore! I had a crush on her when she was Laura Petrie!
    It kinda lasted until she “saved” that lobster.
    But even that was funny.

    Now Ed Asner, diss all you like. Nasty, chubby urine-smelling troll…
    Michael Moore without the money…

    from wikiAccording to Willey, during a meeting in the private study of the Oval Office, Clinton had embraced her tightly, kissed her on the mouth, grabbed her breast, and forced her hand on his genitals.[2] Clinton denied assaulting Willey. According to Monica Lewinsky’s testimony, Clinton stated that the allegation was absurd because Willey is a small-breasted woman and he would never pursue such a woman.[3] The Clinton White House released details of 15 letters and 12 telephone messages that Willey had sent to Clinton after the alleged incident.[citation needed] In all of these, she appeared friendly and eager for more contact with Clinton.

    According to Linda Tripp’s grand jury testimony, she felt Willey pursued a romance with Clinton from the start of her White House affiliation. Willey had speculated with Tripp as to how she might be able to set up an assignation between herself and the president. She routinely attended events at which Clinton would be present, wearing a black dress she believed he liked. According to Tripp’s testimony, Wiley wondered if she and Clinton could arrange to meet in a home to which she had access, on the Chesapeake Bay.[4]

    @john: Wiki is not a great source, anyone can post, there are women that will use men for personal gain, ie Hillary.
    The men must be willing to be used As far as not Bills type, really does he have a type? Was there a woman within reach he did not persue ?

    oh please mansplain it to me.

    The fundamental right to sovereignty over one’s own body is not gender specific.

    Freedom is the right to choose. When choice regarding one’s own body is taken away, freedom no longer exists. The right to choose means that you are also free to make the choices you have made. People make different choices.

    There seems to be a lot of hostility toward Gloria Steinem. She’s an advocate for a woman’s right to make choices. People shouldn’t find that so threatening.
