crenshaw and ensler on feminism and ’08 politics

Very strong articulate piece in HuffingtonPost, excoriating (some) feminist groups and language out of the Hillary satellites (if not her precise planetary orbit) that to be a feminist means to vote for Hillary.  NOW NY is the most egregious and awful example.

Too much to excerpt, but here’s a taste:

For us, the choice at hand is actually quite simple. It is not about the woman candidate vs. the Black male candidate. It is about the candidate who works to dismantle the bomb, rather than drop it; the candidate who works to abolish the old paradigm of power, rather than covet and rise to its highest point; the candidate who seeks solutions and dialogue rather than retaliation and punishment.

If this were the old Batman series, that bubble would be up on the screen now saying POW!!!
