It would have been funnier if you had written that as yet another fake Steinem quote, dumbass.

Of all the people to see completely lose their credibility in the shiatshow that was 2016, Gloria Stienhem's obliteration by the Bernie ladies was especially delicious.

"Yeah, that's her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.  Grab 'em by the pussy. You can do anything."

I suspect it's because she's the only famous feminist who the average (or below) can name.

A quote from Malala Yousafzai sounds too inspirational and, (let's be real, most people who use quotes without research aren't exactly mental giants), unpronounceable.   Also, a quote from feminist Patrick Stewart would just muddy the man-hating waters we like to assume that feminists wallow in.

/deliberately chose names in current media culture
 
2017-10-05 07:10:36 PM  
I have seen Gloria Steinem speak on TV shows and the like. She does in fact quote people she has met in real life, such as cabbies, for example.

JAIL HER! JAIL HER! JAIL HER

On the other hand, she is reasonable intelligent, sane and informed.

On the grabbing hand, Donald Trump seems to get his opinions from watching Fox News, crusing right wing conspiracy sites on the web, and quoting random people has met in the real world, with the last person he met coming out the winner.

JAIL HIM! JAIL HIM! HAIL HIM!

The reason why Steinem is the most misquoted feminist in the world is availability. She is the most iconic and thus most available peg to hang a quoation on, just as the Roman Catholic Church, McDonalds and Donald the Jerk Trump are the most avaible wooden pegs to hang other quotations or iconic representations of things and events on.

Think of a bird. Was it a chicken? Probably not a rhea.

Think of a fish. Was it a salmon or a maqueral? Probably not a coelocanth.

This is how humans think:  very, very badly. In clichés and memes and random urban legends that were formerly jokes but escaped from the rubber chicken circuit.

Save us Godzilla brides! Save us with your wisdom.

Or something like that.

Ganja is the Friend of All Children, Everywhere!

No way. Sorry. I mean Ganga with a G.

I could fill a book of quotations with things I pulled out of my ass and there would still be more wit and wisdom than in all Trumpers combined. Because falling off a turnip truck does not make you a man of the people, nor does being a turnip head make you sons of the soil.

She's joining that elite club of Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, George Bernard Shaw, Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Disraeli, Oscar Wilde, Yogi Berra, and other old dead white dudes that get everything attributed to them.  She should feel honored.

Quotations
Quotations.
They're a lot of fun.
They befuddle and bemuse
Nearly everyone.

For every popular proverb, there is an equal and opposite proverb. Any truth they may contain is not innate in the saying, it is purely in the application.

You know the stars aint shinin

I seen some ugly trees
There was a werewolf honkin

Eh ... I guess. She's probably wary of appearing to accept credit for shiat she didn't actually originate, since the internet is so quick to scorn people who do it. If I was asked to explain a quote that wasn't actually my original thought numerous times by stupid strangers, I'd probably be cranky about it, too.
