Slate | The Left Is Just Fine With Misogyny, As Long As It’s Against Conservative Women





With two incidents that were reported yesterday, the left is showing that it’s just fine with misogyny and violence against women as long as the women in question aren’t card-carrying liberal feminists. As David Weigel mentioned on his Slate blog, Donna Dewitt, the outgoing president of AFL-CIO South Carolina, bashed a piñata bearing a photograph of Gov. Nikki Haley, while men and women in the crowd should  “Whack her harder” and “hit her again.” Dewitt continues to smack the piñata long after it’s knocked down, which is a nice touch.

Elsewhere, Hustler has published an image—“a composite fantasy” in the magazine’s description—of conservative commentator S.E. Cupp with a phallus in her mouth. Hustler’s reasoning? “Cupp … is undeniably cute. But her hotness is diminished when she espouses dumb ideas like defunding Planned Parenthood.” So let’s shut her up. And, even better,  use a penis to do it.

On the bright side, Planned Parenthood and Sandra Fluke have condemned the photo of Cupp, and the Women’s Media Center has issued a strong statement supporting Cupp. (Meanwhile, the National Organization for Women is still complaining about Rush Limbaugh on its website.)
