Sarah News

Darnit! Annette Bening isn't impressed. There goes a good night's sleep for me.

Even worse, Gloria Steinem says:

Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman. It's about making life more fair for women everywhere. It's not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It's about baking a new pie.

Or more accurately, it's about the government baking a pie and giving it to us. She mentions her original choice for President:

.....Hillary Rodham Clinton, who hung in there through ridicule and misogyny to win 18 million votes.

but now, tagged on the end:

Gloria Steinem is an author, feminist organizer and co-founder of the Women's Media Center. She supported Hillary Clinton and is now supporting Barack Obama.

Yikes. So she even likes the misogynist more than a woman. Maybe there's a point to the field of Gender Studies. This is obviously more complicated than I ever imagined.
