NOW are Whores

Many now know of the kerfuffle in California with Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown calling Meg Whitman a whore.  The comment was a bit amusing, and totally uncalled for given the nature of all politicians.  But at least one would have expected an organization, whose mission is to ensure women a level playing field, to object to the use of word meant to demean a woman of accomplishment.  The implication of the word of course is that a woman cannot do anything without sleeping her way to power (ala Hillary Clinton).

However, NOW has made sure that the stereotype is valid - for them.  for they have whored themselves to liberals and completely abandoned their original purpose.  The equalization of women.

Many sat idly by when Clinton (Bill) defined women as play toys for his power.  NOW remained silent with solid support, basically negating years of advancement to women by the actions of a horny old man.  In power.

Then of course we had to endure their silence as one of the most successful women endured gender slurs running for the nations highest office.  Even after defeat and bad jokes of a bad comedian, they remained silent.  Some would say their silence was tacit approval, but in this country, at least in a legal sense, silence is just silence.

Now, the whores of NOW have decided silence is not enough!  No, now the whores of NOW has come out and called Meg Whitman, gubernatorial candidate in California, a whore.

One thing is certain.  NOW is about as pro-woman as a male chauvinist pig.  But more than that, they are clearly misogynist as well.  Not hating all women, just those who do not look like whoring pigs - i.e. themselves.

NOW has no credibility at all any more.  Indeed, they are a hindrance to women and equality.  And for that, no woman of any credibility should look to them for anything other than what NOT to be.

I find it amazing how someone is such a high position as the president of a State chapter would allow her own political views and beliefs to describe the entire chapter as if all the women i their group were Democrats or Liberals. It's such a shame how easily politics corrupts people these days. To the point of throwing an entire group into a whole because 1 stupid person just couldn't shut the fuck up.

BTW, I am truly hating not being able to post from joeuser directly but always having to go to the forums to post instead.

Parry Bellasalma is an idiot and an embarassment to me and any other true feminist.

NOW is irrelevant by its own actions over the years. People see through the charade.

There are many cases where integrity trumps politics.  Both on the left and the right.  Unfortunately, NOW has shown they cannot rise above their pettiness.  They do more damage to their supposed constituency than any male chauvinist pig could.

I would hope that the other liberals within the organization will give them (the leadership) the boot and state unequivocally they will not tolerate such partisan and short sighted views that only harm their mission.  I doubt it will happen, but at least there is hope when good people like you can speak out against them even when you are left of center.

Many do, unfortunately many do not.  As long as they are not confronted for their bigotry and malfeasance, they will continue to get away with it.  What will change them is when they wise up, realize that Parry is just a slut for democrats and kick her to the curb.

They are only a shell of their former selves as far as power go, say compared to the 70's. I have yet in recent memory to seen their endorsement carry any weight where liberals didn't all ready have a strong foot hold. I'm guessing their membership is down as well.

I'm not a feminist in the bra burning, slap-a-man-for-opening-a-door, secretly wish I had a penis kind of way.

I guess the way I AM a feminist is that I think equal pay for equal work. 

NOW just seems like a front for the Democratic party.  It de-legitimizes them in my mind because gender equality doesn't have much to do with social security, gay rights, and "love your body day."

I liked that Loca....very good definition!  Especially this part:

"The definition of feminism does not tell you how to vote or what to think. You can vote Republican or Libertarian or Socialist or "I like that guy's hair." You can bag voting entirely. You can believe whatever you like about child-care subsidies, drafting women, fiscal accountability, Anita Hill, environmental law, property taxes, Ann Coulter, interventionist politics, soft money, gay marriage, tort reform, decriminalization of marijuana, gun control, affirmative action, and why that pothole at the end of the street still isn't fixed. You can exist wherever on the choice continuum you feel comfortable. You can feel ambivalent about Hillary Clinton. You can like the ERA in theory, but dread getting drafted in practice. The definition does not stipulate any of that. The definition does not stipulate anything at all, except itself. If you believe in, support, look fondly on, hope for, and/or work towards equality of the sexes, you are a feminist."

Organizations like this quickly forget why they exist - see NAACP, etc.  Same with the big unions.

Their ONLY power now is for pull quotes and sound bites for the MSM.

Yes you are!  And I agree.  Feminists are not Whores, but NOW is.
