I wasn't trying to ignore the subject or avoid it, I just felt that others were addressing it far better than I could.
Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "'Feminist' Naomi Wolf speaks." and it also captures the reality about Naomi -- a woman who claims to be a feminist while encouraging women to accept violence. That's what she's done for years now.
And that's what she's doing with the rape issue. In one case, Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) is accused of entering a woman while the woman was sleeping. That is rape.
But not to Naomi. To Naomi it was part of a "negotiation."
I don't care if your my husband or Mark Ruffalo (I've got a bit of a crush these days on him), you enter me in my sleep, that's rape.
In the case of the woman, she reportedly woke up and began pleading with Assange who would not cease and desist. If the story is true, he's raped her.
But Naomi Wolf wants to 'free us' all of rape, apparently. It's not Julian's fault, she insists.
That's what she's always done. She's always been an apologist for men who behave criminally. I have no use for her and never will.
My friend explained that Feminist Law Professors had demonstrated yet again that they were useless. While this issue has raged for two solid weeks, while Naomi Wolf has 'redefined' rape, the blog has been silent about it while finding time to cover every other issue.
Feminist Law Professors is not a group of feminists. You don't need to read their garbage to grasp that. It's basic. Go to Third, for example, and at the top of the site you have a quote from Cher. Feminist Law Professors quotes what great woman at the top of their site?
Nicky Kristoff. Nicholas Kristoff. A man.
How did a group of women decide that the wisest statement they could share with any visitor to their website would be from a man?
It sure wasn't a feminist decision.
These aren't women, these are little girls. Little girls who worship men and who will never take a stand if it might make left men uncomfortable. They're a joke. They've always been a joke.
They're as bad as Tennessee Guerilla Women which couldn't say a damn word or lead on it while claiming to be a big feminist website. Even now, they've still not covered what Naomi Wolf has done. They've defocused by writing a paragraph about Keith Olbermann and a couple of sentences about Michael Moore (they stayed silent on Moore until they could praise them -- no, TGW is not a feminist site).
What you have is a lot of front-women for lefty men. Women who betray other women and attack other women to provide cover for the men.
I thought since I include the snapshot in full and since C.I.'s covered this topic repeatedly -- C.I.'s pretty much led on it -- that it was obvious I was in agreement. My friend explained this morning so I hope I've made myself clear now.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
