She’s gay, out and pro-choice. So what’s not to like? She’s a conservative radio talk show host. Gulp. Still….
I heard her this morning on being both conservative and pro-choice. She was pointing out that it doesn’t make sense to be anti-government interference about everything except to put government in between a woman and her decisions about pregnancy. It sounded really good. Just imagine what the US could look like if the conservatives stopped requiring that their candidates support the religiously motivated anti-choice agenda. Same-sex marriage might be next.
BUT she’s a conservative talk show host, and apparently that means continuing the destructive hate speech of those who have made their careers out of creating deep and emotionally reinforced divisions in the States. Her latest? Michelle Obama is “trash in the White House.” She has a fake accent; she tries to sound like “a white girl.”
The host is Tammy Bruce and she gets called “a feminist”. Ouch!
So feminists don’t really form a club, still less are there membership rules. But sometimes I think it would be nice if we could suspend a person’s license to be called one.
