"[Sarah Palin's] clearly a total feminist, I mean in the true sense of feminism, she is her own person. She does her own thing. She does it her way." -Newt Gingrich, on how being like Frank Sinatra is feminist. [Time]
I love how the same people who would typically use the word "feminist" the same way they'd use the words "manhatingdykewhorebabykillers" appropriate it to mean things it doesn't when it comes to Palin.
To be a feminist you need to support every other woman's individual right to make choices different than your own. Not just your own right to do so. Palin benefits from women who had to fight to get the most basic right to vote and determine their own lives, just so she can talk derisively about anyone who doesn't live exactly the same way she does. It's gross. And it's not feminist.
