Her words were dripping with sarcasm as she eagerly thanked Interpol for apprehending the man accused of rape by two women. Now Wolf is left standing in a puddle, or better said, a steaming pile -- of her own doing.
that's from kate noftsinger's 'feminist betrays roots by supporting assange in rape case' (bg news). i wonder if naomi is loving all the attention she's receiving?
she hasn't had so much attention in years. you have to wonder if she sought it deliberately?
her casting off feminism seems, in retrospect, so fait accompli.
she looked at camile paglia, she attacked the non-feminist, studied her and became her.
naomi is hedra to camile's ally (single, white female).
where does naomi go now?
she shouldn't have had a place in feminism after her stunts of 2008 - the sexism and accusations she hurled at other women, the trashing and gender-smearing she used against women.
while men may have delighted in her misogynist piece comparing sarah palin to evita, women should have shuddered. the myth of 'evita' is, in fact, a sexist construct which felt the need to paint the woman as a whore. and there was naomi wolf using a sexist construct to smear another woman.
there was never a reason or need to lie to disagree with sarah palin. i disagree with her constantly. she's a republican and i don't see the world as she does.
but you will never find any gender-based attack on sarah palin at this site.
naomi wolf lives for that sort of thing.
it's sad to watch a person who so clearly valued their looks lose them and that is what's happened to big hair naomi wolf. she was never smart - her 1st book cribbed from political theorist judith n. shklar's lectures which wolf attended but 'forgot' to note - and she was 1 of esquire magazine's self-proclaimed 'do me feminists' - a name for those women of the 3rd wave who were eager to seek the male gaze (to put it mildly).
she used her alleged feminism to take out hillary in 2008. she was among the 1st of that set of self-loathing women to do so. so the best news for 2010 may be that naomi wolf's been exposed as the fraud she always was and will never, ever again be able to 'as a feminist' attack women and get away with it.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
