This may make anyone want to distance themselves with the modern version of feminism. Here is just an abbreviated list of the moments when feminists were less than classy this year.
10. Feminists storm SlutwalkDC with vulgar posters, promiscuous clothing and self-righteous attitudes.
9. A Planned Parenthood representative canâ€™t answer the question, â€œIf a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?â€
8. Miley Cyrus, who says sheâ€™s â€œone of the biggest feminists in the world,â€ twerks live onstage at the MTV VMA awards, causing parents everywhere to shield their childrenâ€™s eyes.
7. Actress Lena Dunham goes â€œfangirlâ€ for Bill Clinton at the Golden Globe Awards. Because ya know, Bill Clinton is such a champion of womenâ€™s rights.
6. MSNBCâ€™s Melissa Harris-Perry wore these earrings to protest the Texas pro-life law banning abortions after five months.
As Katie said, â€œIf you have to wear feminine hygiene products as accessories in order to make a "point," then it's clear you lost the argument a long time ago.â€
5. NARALâ€™s CPC â€œWeek of Actionâ€ Campaign, which was designed to spread negative images around pro-life crisis pregnancy centers, failed to make an impact on college campuses.
Despite major pushes on social media, on blogs all over the web, and from the Feminist Campus organization, students seem to have been uninterested in this newest conspiracy theory from the â€œprogressiveâ€ movement.
4. â€œComedian Sarah Silverman sticks a napkin down her pants, calls it a â€œvag napkinâ€ and tries to pawn it off as charity at a pro-choice Texas womenâ€™s marathon to raise funds for abortion.
3. Abortion supporters chant â€œHail Satanâ€ at the Texas capitol.
2. In the protest that kept on giving, pro-choice activists stormed the Texas capitol with bags of feces, tampons and bricks intended to throw at pro-life advocates. (This is listed as the number one â€œsuccessâ€ on Repro justice site.)
Canâ€™t wait to see what they plan to throw at us next year.
1. Wendy Davisâ€™s filibuster.
Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is no hero. While her 11-hour spectacle defending late-term abortion in the Lone Star State be number one on many feministsâ€™ top ten success lists, it deserves the worst spot here. The filibuster didnâ€™t win in the Texas Senate, where the sweeping pro-life bill still passed, and itâ€™s not winning for her gubernatorial campaign, where Republican Greg Abbott is way ahead in the race for Texasâ€™s next governor. The only thing it did seem to spawn, was the ridiculous behavior listed above.
