Feminist Holding on to Wiener

This story from Dana Loesch writing at Big Journalism is a little sad.  Seems that the feminists who work to protect the rights of females only do so if the female is not causing trouble for a democrat politician. Anthony Wiener is everything women of this type should abhor, but they don’t because he votes for things they like, like unfettered access to abortion.

All of the women mentioned in the linked article excuse Wiener’s actions for a variety of reasons, but they all pretty much sound the same. “He’s our guy, he votes how we like, and because he votes how we like he can doing anything to any woman he wants.”

The head of the Brooklyn/Queens chapter of National Organization for Women said she could separate Wiener’s sexcapades from the liberal track record that earned the group’s support.

“I wasn’t happy to discover that my congressman is a 14-year-old boy,” said Julie Kirshner, president of the NOW chapter.

“But he happens to be one of the best politicians out there, so we’re in a bad position.  We’re trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.” (Source: Big Journalism)

Ms. Kirshner, can I ask you a question? What do you think about the bold-faced lying he did for a week? Are you giving a liar the benefit of the doubt or are you giving a cyber-cheating husband the benefit of the doubt?

Feminist Amanda Marcotte…called the reporting of a congressman’s lewd photo scandal “new standards” of which we should all fear [and]… asserts that investigation into or reporting on Wiener’s acts constitutes a “violation of sexual privacy.” (Source: Big Journalism)

So when the press was reporting on the Larry Craig scandal and trying to bring down a Speaker of the House during the Clinton Administration that wasn’t a set of “new standards”, but if you of your boys gets his butt in a sling, then it troubles you. You ma’am are a hypocrite.

Then we have everyone’s favorite horrible actress, Janeane Garafalo:

During an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Janeane Garofalo said, “Anthony Wiener deserves to be supported and hopefully he will be the mayor of New York one day.  I’m serious. He is a Democrat [who] actually fights for the things liberals and progressive and rational people care about.” (Source: Big Journalism)

So Ms. Garafalo, is treating women like sexual prey something “liberals and progressives and rational people” care about?  What about lying?

I really do think that a lot of progressive women will protect a person like Wiener because he has fought for so-called abortion rights. For feminists, the right to terminate a pregnancy is issue number one and that crowds out everything else. The abortion issue crowds out telling the truth when called to do so and crowds out treating women with respect.

Has anyone ever wondered why a male politician would nearly fall on his sword to protect the “right” for women to have abortions on demand? I have given this some thought from time to time and have come up with my own theories.

Theory number one is pretty simple and clear. They are digging for women voters. They really don’t care one way or another about the issue of abortion; they just want the progressive female vote. Women do vote more for democrats than Republicans and abortion might be one of those reasons.

My other theory is a little more insidious. Maybe guys like Rep Wiener support abortion because they view it as a form of birth control. As far as we know, Wiener was not actually having physical sex with any of the women he had contact with. But what if he had decided to take it a little further and actually meet up with one of these women. Lisa Weiss, a Las Vegas blackjack dealer, appears to have been more than willing to have a physical relationship with Wiener according to the transcript of their Facebook conversations (the transcript language is vary graphic) posted at Radar Online. Seeing that Wiener is a married man (for now), if Miss Weiss had gotten pregnant during a possible liaison, would he want that option available so it could be kept quiet?

It is very sad that these women continue to support a congressman who obviously has a different viewpoint of women than many of these feminist have of themselves.
