It looks to be another red letter day for the “patriarchy.” Not only does the Super Bowl start in less than 2 hours, but we also have Gloria Steinem apologizing for putting her foot in her mouth last night on Bill Maher’s HBO show. As Maher rightly pointed out, if a man had said what she said, then he would have been called a sexist lout. As it turns out, Ms. Steinem ended up taking so much heat from her own side that she had to issue an apology earlier this afternoon. We talked about this a little bit on the Killstream last night, but that was pre-apology. Let me give you the rundown before I go settle in for the game.

Here’s a recap of her original comments

 

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem has drawn the wrath of the Twitterverse for suggesting that young women supporting Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign are doing so to gain the attention of men. “When you’re young, you’re thinking, ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,’” Steinem told Bill Maher Friday night on the comic’s HBO show “Real Time.”

Maher leapt right on her comment. “Now if I said that, ‘Yeah, they’re for Bernie because that’s where the boys are,’ you’d slap me,” he said.

She went on to claim she wouldn’t have slapped Maher, but we all know how these rad fems play both sides of the fence when it suits them. Since it’s their darling Hillary Clinton getting blasted by young women voters, the knives have come out. Sexist rhetoric is perfectly fine in the defense of Ms. Clinton. Steinem isn’t the only one, either. Take a look at what former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has been saying recently

While introducing Mrs. Clinton at a rally in New Hampshire on Saturday, Madeleine Albright, the first female secretary of state, talked about the importance of electing the first female president. In a dig at the “revolution” that Mr. Sanders often speaks of, she said that the first female commander in chief would be a true revolution. And she scolded any woman who felt otherwise.

“We can tell our story of how we climbed the ladder, and a lot of you younger women think it’s done. It’s not done,” Ms. Albright said of the broader fight for women’s equality. “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”

Mrs. Clinton laughed, slowly clapped her hands and took a large sip of her beverage.

In an attempt to explain Mrs. Clinton’s struggles with female voters in New Hampshire, Ms. Albright said during an NBC interview on Saturday that women could be judgmental toward one another and that they occasionally forgot how hard someone like Mrs. Clinton had to work to get where she is.

At least Steinem had the good sense to apologize for her remarks:

It’s pity for her that the mob isn’t buying it, though. I guess that’s because it’s transparent bullshit…

As I said, it’s been a banner day for the “patriarchy.”

    1. At least the backlash is putting some faith back into humanity. Both Bill Maher and the women commenters.

      1. I honestly wouldn’t trust that mob (the women commenters) either.

        They are essentially the same whiny hipster retards that sees sexism against women in everything they search for, and initiate lynch mobs towards anyone that dares to say or produce anything that they deem “sexist” or “misogynistic”.

        They’re unhappy with Steinem’s comments only because she suggested young women are voting for Sanders to seek approval from men. Now if Steinem instead had said something like ‘young women are making a mistake by voting for Sanders because his proposals benefit the boys’ then she would’ve made them think twice, got them on side, and would probably have avoided the backlash.

        I mean, there is a reason why the majority of them looked up to/admired Gloria Steinem in the first place…

  1. Ah, the feminists eating each other is so fun! I’m literally eating chips and dip while reading this, it’s more entertaining than the super bowl!

  2. Commander-in-Chief of what? You have to be able to build a ladder to climb one. Women can’t provide the industrial base to create a safety pin. I’ve been perfectly willing to let women share in America’s success but they have pushed things too far. if you’re going to be a fucking supremacist at least show you can do something as an entire group on a civilizational level.

  3. 2014: The year feminism totally lost the argument.

    2015: The year feminazis pissed their panties and stamped their feet about having lost the argument while the media enabled them.

    2016: The year feminism destroys itself with an inter-generational civil war sparked by the democratic primaries.

    1. How have they ‘lost’ in 2014 and 2015 though?

      Feminism is responsible for creating and passing laws that are designed to benefit and give more rights to women, all while oppressing men’s rights.

      Their bigotry and hypocrisy was easily exposed, but when it comes to the government and law, they win.

      1. I said lost the argument not lost political power. Historically when that happens to a group of people they’ve basically got two choices the first being to fold, the second is to go into denial and stubbornly wait for the pitch forks and guillotines.

  4. It is interesting seeing Maher realize what psychopaths the SJWs are. It must be painful seeing the ugly face of the side you identify with.

    1. Happens on both sides. Go read a Breitbart comment section. Yeah, those retards vote for the side I generally agree with.

    2. Maher has been nipping at the heels of feminists and Socjus culture for a long time now. He’s just one of the poor loyalist die hards who thinks the Democrats and left wing of the U.S. are still ultimately like they were back in the 60s.

  5. Obviously young women support Bernie because of the rumor that he is packing a ginormus meat-snake in those shabby trousers that he refers to as the ol’ wife-tamer. Feel the Bern baby,,,

  6. She’s probably too used to never having anything come back to bite her because her people have controlled the media so hard, but with social media if she makes that sort of mistakes the people will spread it and talk about it and a simple apology doesn’t erase it anymore from the spotlight anymore.

    What she did happened because it’s always been about control, the feminists hate women that do not follow the program as much as they hate men in general, and since the fems are also immoral and have no ethics she wouldn’t have a problem throwing the traitorous women all under the buss.

    Her slip is the sort of usual tactic feminists use,dirty and stupid statements that trigger emotional reactions from people or are meant at belittling or smearing those they hate.
    In this case, the traitorous women.

    But all things combined have created a perfect case to show what real feminists think.

  7. I find it really insulting that Hilary plays the woman card all the time, it’s so insulting to tell people they shouldn’t care about issues and that women are dumb enough to actually fall for that. How can you be the people’s champion when you are calling the people dumb?

  8. You missed a point that only an old guy can tell you about. Gloria said that women get radicalized as they get older while men get conservative as they get older, explaining that men get rich and women get poor as they age.

    Don’t bother to parse the argument. With the Reagan surge there were a lot of women backing Republicans. Steinem was at a loss. So she made up a theory that women do everything the opposite of men and the women would become more liberal as they got older. It made no sense except as wishful thinking.

    My explanation was that a lot of our women got their first good job with the 1980s boom and the end of the glass ceiling and for them it was the days that would be looked on as Good Old Days.
