"My overwhelming response is this is not newsworthy," Steinem said before adding, "It's certainly true that women's bodies are not public property for comment."

But this is Kardashian, I pointed out. Hadn't she brought all the hyperscrutiny upon herself by flaunting her body around the way she's made a career of doing?

"That's probably true," Steinem agreed, then pointed out, "If men were rewarded in the same way for flaunting their bodies, they'd be flaunting them, too."


Right, that's why Ryan Gosling and Magic Mike bag groceries for a living and commentary on Chris Christie is confined to his policy positions.

Christian Bale: All in all I thought her responses were pretty good.

When the author pointed out that Kim K had sought out attention, Steinem didn't say "She didn't ask to have the dreaded Male Gaze forced upon her by the Patriarchy!" or some such crap, she agreed with the point.

She didn't call Obama a rape-enabler for complementing Kamala Harris, but correctly pointed out it was an error, and pretty minor in the grand scheme of offenses.

As prominent feminists go, she's pretty damn reasonable.


Gloria Steinem is one of the good ones. She's intelligent, reasonable, and isn't prone to histrionic fits when things don't go exactly her way. She supports women without vilifying men, a rare trait among the current third-wave feminists of today.

Her whole family should be dropped into an active volcano along with Honey Boo-Boo's parents, Pat Robertson, Paris Hilton, the Phelps clan, every person who hosts Fox & Friends, and everyone on every Mtv show since 2000.

"I think the reason she got some criticism is because she's successful. In order to be loved and appreciated, women have to fail."

The victimization never ends.

I think the only people that care about Kim putting on the pounds during her pregnancy are E! and the gossip rags. The rest of us could probably give a single fark. My take on it is that Kim is trying to make a non issue an issue just because her AW nature thinks it should be.
