Where are the feminists?

I started off pissed off, but now I'm sitting here giggling.

JJ the Unrepentant has a blogpost about an evil Iraqi woman. In it, she links to these chuckleheads, with the quote 'Where are the feminists?' I thought she was kidding until I clicked the link.

Indeed, we feminists are somehow to blame for Islam's treatment of women. Or for not speaking up about Islam's treatment of women. Or something.

Curious about other issues on which we feminists were AWOL, I googled 'Where are the feminists?' and got my answer.

Everything.

I'm not going to put in all the links -- I clicked only on a couple -- but here's a partial list of things we're either to blame for or we're to be taken to task for not doing something about.

Linda Tripp

New England Patriots

Terri Schiavo

Martha Stewart

sex-selective abortion

prostitution

Michelle Obama

Sarah Palin

Aboriginal women

polygamy

Islam

And I only browsed up to page 5 of search results.

Everybody into the pool! Fill in the blank: Where are the feminists on _________?

Ohhhhh, sorry you already had Marty on the list. How about gang rape jihad?

Of course, Marty (is that her nickname? we're not that close) is on the list. We are totally responsible for her and/or we are totally not doing enough about her.

Wall Street. Someone, somewhere, sometime in the 1960s burned a bra in the general vicinity of Wall Street; it cast a gigantic curse/hex on it.

Plus Martha Stewart worked on Wall Street. So there. It's a plot.

Git ur tin foil out.

deBeauxOs said...

Pray tell ... how did feminism destroy your boots?

Now there's a story begging to be told, possibly done in the style of a Mexican photo-drama.
