Elle Magazine writer Sady Doyle is a feminist who happens to really dislike women. Well, at least some women. Her estimation varies according to the specific women's politics: she likes liberals, she dislikes conservatives. In fact, she's perfectly fine with people harassing females of the conservative persuasion. "So what Kellyanne Conway has been the victim of sexism, or Ivanka Trump has been accosted on an airplane while traveling with her children," Townhall's Cortney O'Brien wrote on Doyle's philosophy. "They deserve it. Megyn Kelly, too, is not safe from Doyle's ire, giving readers a step-by-step guide as to how to criticize the new feminist hero, who claims she was the victim of harassment."
So at least she's being honest. Feminism is a very exclusive club and conservatives need not apply. Doyle explained her anti-conservative bias:
We should not weep for Theresa May or any other conservative woman whose policies contribute to the continued oppression of women and minorities. Even the most moon-eyed believer in feminist sisterhood must realize it's all got to stop somewhere. Any harm done to Kellyanne Conway by calling her "Skeletor" is vastly outweighed by the harm Conway has done, and intends to do, to the American people. And by the way, it's no coincidence that all of these women are white—they've been given leeway to screw up and court public disapproval in ways that a woman of color would never be afforded.
Okaaay... Here's what really irritating about this article, other than the fact that it's rude, hypocritical, and intolerant. Liberals spend a great deal of time saying that women don't deserve to be slut-shamed, abused, or harassed no matter what they wear, how much they drink, or where they go. This is true. Know what else is true? Women don't deserve to be slut-shamed, abused, or harassed no matter what they politically believe or advocate.
