Radical Feminists Claim Conservative Women Stole Feminism

Radical feminists claim conservative women stole feminism.  They are angry conservative women entered the political arena, insisting such women set bad examples to young girls.  How can woman strong, smart women set bad examples?  Isn’t that what feminists want: intellectual leadership?

Radical feminists believe conservative feminists harm the women’s movement: conservative women support marriage and they are pro-life.  But GOP candidates prove women can in fact do and have it all, yet radical feminists hate that idea, despite fighting for it the last 50 years.

Isn’t it time feminists get rid of the anger + genderless = brains persona?  Let young women see all women can rise to high powered leadership.  Why must young girls be taught marriage and children equal slavery?  Why brainwash girls into assuming traditional values are anti-women, when in fact, those are the core values that make them strong, capable leaders?

The Nation’s Jessica Valenti is furious; she makes conservative feminists like Sarah Palin out to be thieving anti-women.

Sarah Palin opposes abortion and comprehensive sex education…[and ] She…calls herself a feminist.  Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell… [says] allowing women to attend military academies ‘cripples the readiness of our defense’ and…wives should ‘graciously submit’ to their husbands… [while]…her website touts her ‘commitment to the women’s movement.’  Pundits who once mocked women’s rights activists as ugly bra burners are abuzz over the ‘new conservative feminism,’ and the Tea Party is lauding itself as a women’s movement.  The right once disparaged feminism as man- hating and baby-killing, but now ‘feminist’ is the must-have label for women on the right… Feminists are understandably horrified—the movement we’ve fought so hard for is suddenly being appropriated by the very people who are trying to dismantle it…the mainstream feminist movement’s instability and stalled ideology have made stealing it that much easier.  The failure of feminists to prop up the next generation of activists, and the focus on gender as the sole requisite for feminism, has led to a crisis of our own making.

The failure of radical feminism is Femisogynist: “man-hating,” rage brainwashing American girls into thinking it’s insanely hideous to consider marrying men, let alone allow the beasts to touch your bodies, created solely for genderless “baby-killing” insubordination to nature.

Betsy Reed of The Nation is sick of the GOP conservative feminism as well, insisting this strange phenomena would cease to exist if the media would ignore conservative GOP candidates:

In the media spectacle that is the 2010 midterm elections, women of the GOP are playing starring roles…from Indian-American Nikki Haley’s triumph over her mudslinging male rivals for the GOP gubernatorial nod in South Carolina, to Carly Fiorina’s catty open-mic swipe at her opponent Barbara Boxer’s hair in the first-ever contest between two women for a California Senate seat, to WWF founder and Connecticut Senate hopeful Linda McMahon…to the daily dose of clips revealing Christine O’Donnell’s youthful preoccupations with witchcraft and masturbation.  Remember when politics was boring?
