Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, wrote a piece recently about Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin that soars to the height of left-wing, feminist hypocrisy.
In it she states that "everything Sarah Palin believes in and practices is antithetical to Feminism which for me is part of one story -- connected to saving the earth, ending racism, empowering women, giving young girls options, opening our minds, deepening tolerance, and ending violence and war." (Emphasis mine.)
She tells us that " Sarah Palin does not believe in evolution. (She) does not believe in abortion" and assumes that Palin "obviously does not believe in sex education or birth control " because of the pregnancy of her 17 year old daughter.
Ensler then goes on to tell us what Sarah Palin *does* believe in. According to Ms. Ensler, Sarah Palin "believes in guns. " And, perhaps most dangerous of all, (she) "believes in God."
Apparently, feminism is no longer about equal rights, equal education, equal opportunity and equal pay for equal work. Feminism is now about evolution, global warming, abortion, gun control, sex ed, and atheism!
Oh, and "deepening tolerance." Uhuh. How about a little tolerance for pro-life, Republican, hunting, Christian moms, hmmm? Or is that too much to ask?
And as far as inferring the beliefs of a parent from the behavior of their children, trust me. One can't always do that.
