Is this one of those clueless conservatives who can't tell the difference between philandering and misogyny?

A conservative? In the Nation? That would be like dropping Andrew Dice Clay into a meeting of the Ellen James Society.

"You don't find Weiner attractive? I suppose you've seen so much of it you must have developed a discerning taste..."

I recall seeing more than one Jezebel-type screed calling him a predator or somesuch. I also know that Weiner wasn't weinering random women, making this less a problem of consensual sexual activity and more one of Weiner being bad at relationships. Also, seeing his stupid ass on the news every goddamn day means lots of people (including probably at least...10 feminists) care - isn't the conservative gold standard of what's important the first 3 stories on the national news?

"Feminists" is a very broad term, encompassing Betty Friedan, Marilyn Monroe, Susan Anthony, the loudmouth "all hetero sex is rape" types and millions of others.

Heh.

I find him to be unattractive.  And I find penises unattractive in general.  I'd do Huma though.  She's hot and exotic, and obviously has low standards so I've got a chance.

Why don't feminists care about Filner?

Because, IOKIYAD
 
2013-08-06 10:22:24 AM  
Much like Muslims against terrorism and extremism, black people who're concerned about black-on-black violence, and Christians who believe that gays should have civil rights - just because haven't heard about something within your self-constructed, hypoallergenic bubble of an echo chamber which violently searches out and destroys anything which doesn't meet your preconceived notions doesn't mean it does not exist.

She looks like she could unhinge her jaw, and that gives me the weirdest boner because I went through my boasexual phase in college and I thought I'd gotten past it.

Actually, I believe that 9 of 10 of the women accusing are Dems.

Also, his D party has asked him to step down.

Don't need feminists when you have everyone *including* the feminists.

Focus entirely on that, and ignore Republican misogyny.

They don't care because he's not going to win and therefore he has no power to trade for their approval.

Feminists cared about Sheldon Silver enabling a culture of sexual harassment in the NY state assembly for a little while, but their concerns magically disappeared once enough perks and pork magically appeared in the districts of female assembly members.

The interns are still treated like pieces of meat - but they don't have any power to trade for approval, either.

Exactly. Personal behavior's one thing, public policy's another.

My guess -- Confronted with someone with Weiner's history, I'd guess most feminist women would keep a polite distance and make sure he doesn't get their phone numbers. Confronted with a Filner, I'd guess every one of them would go to great lengths to avoid getting stuck in an elevator or behind closed doors with the guy and most of them would acively support his challenger come primary time just to get rid of him.

That's how you handle private behavior sleaze.

Maybe another politician is a well-behaved gentleman with good personal character, but demonizes a charity that provides free health care to poor women and supports policies that would take us back to the old days of poor women dying from coathanger abortions. Of course that guy's going to provoke outrage.

Apologize for not acting sooner?

The local Democratic Party has known for a long time about sexual harassment allegations against Bob Filner, a former Democratic assemblywoman said in a Thursday interview.

"I blew the whistle on this two years ago to the Democratic Party leadership," former Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña said.

Saldaña said that in summer 2011 six prominent women in local politics, business and education told her that Filner had physically or verbally harassed them. Saldaña had been exploring what turned out to be an unsuccessful bid for Congress and the conversations came in the context of the 2012 elections.
Saldaña said she contacted former party Chairman Jess Durfee with the allegations and Durfee was among a group of Democratic leaders who met with Filner to discuss them that summer. She said nothing happened.

"As disgraceful as Bob's behavior has been, it's been tolerated by our Democratic Party leadership," she said.

Question:  "Why Don't Feminists Care More About Anthony Weiner?"


Answer:  Because they ONLY care about electing democrats (i.e. the government is my husband and social engineer) ... and abortion (i.e. The HOLY GRAIL).


/oh, I almost forgot.  They also HATE attractive women.

Neighborhood Watch: They also HATE attractive women.


Oh COME ON! Really? We're just jealous?

I'll tell you why we don't get so agitated when a liberal does shiat like this: because liberals don't go around trying to "protect the sanctity of marriage" while farking their future ex-wife behind the current soon-to-be- ex-wife's back. It's all about hypocrisy. Liberals don't come off as NEAR the hypocrites that conservatives do when it comes to amoral behavior.

It's still shiatty behavior, don't get me wrong.

This is what I got out of it. He's kind of a creep & doesn't understand boundaries, which are things that a grown man should really have a handle on.

Also, you need to email me, you sexy beast.

I liked the "Ask Jessica" video she did where she was answering the question of "How do I get men interested in feminism?", and the first thing she came up with was basically "Find something in pop culture that they like and point out how it's sexist."

Great job displaying that same level of self-awareness that has made feminism such a universally-well-loved movement, there.

Better question is why does anyone care about him that doesn't live in NYC?
