S.E. Cupp, a newly minted contributor to Fox Forum, is happy that Ms. magazine has run a cover with Obama sporting the “this is what a feminist looks like” t-shirt. It’s an acknowledgement that women’s issues can be advanced from men, and a positive sign from feminists. Does this mean that Obama is clipping the wings of civil rights profiteers both of racial minorities and women?
Ms. magazine has offended a lot of women in the past – both by glorifying and, in fact, celebrating abortion as an act of defiance against men, and by appearing anti-Semitic in refusing to run an ad honoring Israeli women. If the election of Barack Obama is opening feminists’ eyes to the realities of the world – that men are valuable and important, and shouldn’t be excluded from our fight for equality – then I am now a huge supporter of Barack Obama. Here’s hoping the new feminist mantra can be “I Am Man, Hear Me Roar.”
I sincerely doubt that American feminists, under current leadership, are ever going to consider the human rights side of their movement before the bra-burning part of it. If it were to step outside of the narrowly-defined box (we’ll call it the Kitchen of Liberalism), left-leaning organizations that assert a right to abortion and mandated sick leave would drop their support and supposedly “delegitimize” them.
