Anti-Feminist Quote of the Day

Via the Washington Times, some guy took the time out his day to write a letter to the editor, mansplaining*:

"It would appear that today’s feminists are greatly bothered by the looks of conservative women, who just so happen to be pro-life. It’s as if they look at Sarah Palin and her 'Mama Grizzlies' as betraying their distorted version of feminism.

I could just hear them saying, 'Aren’t they supposed to be white-haired church ladies?' and 'women who look like that are supposed to be with us.' Thank you, Mrs. Palin, Michele Bachmann, Nikki Haley, Christine O'Donnell, Michelle Malkin and Lila Rose for showing the modern feminists what true feminism is all about. It’s not all about looks, but rather about standing up for the truth and defending unborn babies, faith, family and marriage."

(But really, it's all about looks).

I mean, can you imagine, a woman writing in and posing the following as legit political discourse:

"It appears today's conservative men are greatly bothered by the looks of liberal men. So, I just wanna give a shout-out to all the liberal hunks out there. Barack Obama, Jon Stewart, and Howard Dean. Let me just say hubba-hubba, am I right?

So thank you, gents, for showing everyone what it means to be a liberal man. What it means is being hot. (And some other stuff too. Maybe. As long as you agree with us). Whatever. You guys just sit there looking pretty and leave the hard thinkin' to us ladyfolk."

I mean, really? Deep thoughts from the anti-feminists. Wahoo!

*Today's bit of anti-feminist wisdom was brought to you by FauxbjectiveCo, the fine granters of "props" to people who acquire information by means other than actually reading feminist writing who then mistake their own ignorant, uninspired thinking for objective truth.
