"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

How Feminism Is Censured, and Censored By the Western Media (as a follow up to my earlier statements about Chesler and Hirsi-Ali.)

Phyllis Chesler, whose Feminist bona fides cannot be questioned IMO, here laments how she has been relegated to the ranks of the ignorant by the New York Times (wherein she used to publish.)

As I asked a few days ago... isn't anyone interested in truth any more? Must Feminists play this game? Must we all be 100% "Liberal" on every count, in order to be considered Feminists at all? To be heard??


Since when do we give (mostly male) editorial boards more power than we give the soldiers in our own ranks?

Please note that I am not taking sides in the Israel/ Palestine conflict. I am merely pointing out that a Feminist ought to be able to call it as she sees it. And not be censured by western media sources. Indeed, this tendency of our *supposedly* Feminist intelligensia, to disqualify dissenters has ... in many ways ... led to an untimely "Death of Feminism."

Oh, the lies we tell our daughters (and sons.) For shame!

  1. It has become insane. What we do in the name of tolerance and multiculturalism now defies all common sense.

    It's also amazing to me, many people have no problem criticizing the Catholic church, the Mormons, the "Religious Taliban" in the United States, but when it comes to Islam suddenly we must embrace all these oppressions done in the name of religion. It's as if people see a nativity set in a mall as an example of horrendous religious oppression, but building a mosque that women aren't even allowed to enter through the front door, is a worthy cause needing our support. No Christmas trees at the airport, that's offensive, but supporting a religion that forces women to pray in segregation so they don't contaminate the rest of the congregation, that's okay.
