MARCIA G YERMAN/SMEAR TACTICS IN THE FEMINIST BLOGS. YOU GUESSED IT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT US.

The writer of this article is upset because a lot of women including myself are against Obama appointing Kim Gandy as the head of the Woman’s Bureau in the labor department. This writer is also of the opinion that women should have just fallen on their knees in front of Obama because Hillary told us too.
She doesn’t understand how women can oppose Kim Gandy and NOW. She doesn’t state the blog sites that object to Kim Gandy.
Here are a few that I found that she may have seen.

I agree with the writers of these articles completely. NOW and Kim Gandy failed women when women needed them the most. They did not have to vote for Sarah Palin but they should have endorsed her ticket and they should have defended her against the sexist media and Democrats. They should have spoken up for Hillary during the Primaries.
NOW should be non partisan but if they cannot be non partisan then they should call themselves Democrat and Pro Choice only.

I read the article in question. Seems to me, Yerman is more concerned with the type of dialogue as opposed to the content itself.I didn’t get that she was pro or con the Gandy appointment, but focusingon how everything was going down in the feminist blogs.
