    This is why feminism is a big joke now a days. Even though Bill was trying
    to get her to acknowledge that Islam is a huge problem as to other
    religions, she doesn’t really acknowledge it. Secondly, apparently we have
    to vote along gender lines now because all of the “men” are voting towards
    Bernie, even though it is more of an age gap within voters. We should vote
    for the person who would be much more progressive towards women and who
    also doesn’t have a record of promoting policies that hurt women like
    Clinton. Also, everyone in America is poor nowadays, regardless of gender,
    color or sexual orientation. Hillary is only for the 1%.

    I generally liked most of what she said but the problem is when you twist
    an ideology to support a certain political movement that does not embody
    its essence. That’s when ideologies start to fuck. She fucked up big time.

    Feminism has been hijacked by old bitter white women who blame their failed

    Gloria, I am so disappointed! As a 60 year old women, who has admired you

    themselves who is the best candidate-it must be “where the boys are”? Not
    to mention a candidate can only be a feminist if they have a vagina. What
    has made you so narrow minded? I was going to buy your book-but now i am
    tainted. My total views of someone I so admired have been turned upside
    down in one interview. Sadly, regretfully, not a fan anymore.

  • Michael Peterson 3 years ago

    I’m a feminist but I downvoted this for her insinuation that female Bernie
    supporters are doing it to “meet boys.” You could take it as a joke but
    since it followed her viewpoint that women become more liberal and
    political as they age it seemed like her genuine opinion which is sad.
    Gloria Steinem has done great things for the movement and she has my
    respect but on this point she’s dead wrong.

    I support Hillary Clinton based on her policy and history. However in my
    social circle a few of my female friends do support Sanders but NOT because
    that’s “where the boys are” my definition of feminism is that a woman can
    do or support anything or anyone she wants for whatever reason she wants.
    Disregarding a young woman’s opinion because it doesn’t match up with yours
    is the exact opposite of feminism. Let me say again I support Hillary
    Clinton. Also let me say this supporting Bernie Sanders does not make you a
    “bad feminist.” Everyone please develop your own opinions, make your own
    choices and don’t let anyone even Gloria Steinem make you feel bad about

    Ever think maybe young women support Bernie because he has the better

    supports abortion, pay equity… the whole 9 yards. I’m not under the
    delusion that Hillary could fulfill my feminist will because she is a
    woman. You wouldn’t vote for Carly Fiorina would you? Hell no, she is as
    anti woman as it gets. Hillary and Bernie are basically on the same exact
    level when in comes to women’s issues, but Bernie has the added benefit of
    not being a commodity bought and sold by influential lobbyists and donors.

    Did this feminist just imply that “young women aren’t smart enough to think

    I have been thinking the exact same thing. These young girls are going for
    Bernie to impress the boys of how egalitarian they are, and meanwhile the
    boys are, as usual, thinking the girls are just dumb hos who don’t deserve
    to be treated like whole humans. It will unfortunately take quite a while
    for the girls to figure out that the answer to the question, “Why doesn’t
    he treat me with respect?” is, “Because he doesn’t respect you.” Gloria
    knew what she was talking about.

    I’ve never been more disappointed in Gloria Steinem than after this
    interview. Don’t get me wrong, she was the original hard-core woman’s
    advocate and no one can take that away, but her desire to see a woman
    president in her lifetime has clouded her judgement and damaged her
    feminist cred. I hope she’s been able to reevaluated her stance on Hillary
    Clinton in light of all the backlash she’s receiving, mostly from fellow
    feminists. Not just *any* woman will do.

  • Daniel Bengtsson 3 years ago

    She’s such a liar – completely out of touch with reality. hardly
    anything she said during the interview was true, it’s like she’s a
    pathological liar. I’ll prove it:

    1. Home is the most dangerous Place for both men and women – no need to
    seperate by gender.

    2. Roe v wade – yeah, can you really say that feminists are championing the
    right of abortion more today than 50 years ago? Well I guess you could, but
    you’d be lying.

    2. b) Note that she says that Young people are way more feminist than they
    used to be…remember this.

    3. She says that women will earn a million dollars less than a man over the
    course of their lifetime when they graduate. the average (and that includes
    the top 1%, so you know it’s skewed) of what a person will earn during
    their lifetime in america is $1,4 million. So when Gloria says a million
    dollars less that’s 400k during a lifetime, or 10k a year, or if you rather
    have it by month: $833 for someone witha collage degree. Does that sound
    even remotely realistic to you?

    4. On Hillary – Bill actually called her out on it and said “America” as a
    response to her “it epends on where you ask” – an obvious lie.

    5.” women get more radical as they get older” remember 2 b? Yeah, it’s
    utter BS. if you look at any survey or hell, just look around you and you
    will find that most radical feminists are in their late teens/early
    twenties. They’re not 70 or 80 year olds, it’s just not true.

    6. The whole Bernie bit…yeah…I don’t even need to comment on it, and
    you know why.

    7. Saying “ well do you know me?” in order to try and make
    it sound as if she didn’t just put her foot in her mouth might have
    worked…if it was to someone that actually knew her, which Bill obviously

    8. Highest earning woman of the year in the Corporate world…not a
    transgender, it’s Yahoo’s CEO, who was in fact born with a vagina.

    9. It’s stupid to say that women can have it all…that’s right Young
    feminists, Gloria said so so it must be true, right?

    10. On Hillary’s speach…nobody wa actually against it. Nor was she
    adressing China, she merely attended UN’s fourth Little feminist get
    together to talk to a room filled with feminists about feminism. Really,
    saying that womens rights are human rights in a feminist safe space really
    isn’t that much of a big deal.

    11. The way women are treated in the muslim World is the number one
    priority for feminists…BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA, if anything feminists are
    fighting criticism of islam by Calling anyone who Draws attention to the
    suffering of muslim women racists.

    12. Muhammed was a feminist reformer, yeah right. Compare Before, as in how
    the qouran describes muhammeds first marriage and muhammeds parants and
    their relationship, and how female idols were worshiped to what he reformed
    it into: Marrying a 7 year old, describing how he had sex with her at 9,
    instituting Death penalties for adultery, cmparing women to cattle,
    instituting that a man can marry 4 wives that he can beat if they disobay,
    saying again and again that a woman is only Worth half as much as a man,
    etc, etc, etc…yeah, what a great womens rights activist

    Not one mention of the Muslim sex attacks in Germany and when he tries to
    get her to be critical of Islam she muddies the water with the “all
    Abrahamic religions are in the same boat” canard. Whether it’s Muslim
    misogyny or sex-selective abortion, feminists take cognitive dissonance to
    dizzying heights. What started out as a movement to improve the lot of
    women has degenerated into a dumpster fire of political correctness. In
    short, the cure has become the disease.

    If there were 1000 presidential elections every year in the US, and none of
    them were women, then we would have statistical evidence that there might
    be an issue with the US electing women. The fact that no Presidential
    election so far hasn’t elected a woman is not a big enough statistical
    sample to imply anything, and if Hillary happens to win, or not win, that
    does not represent a massive shift in electability for women in general.
