This pisses me off so bad… where were you people a few months ago when Hillary was getting bashed left and right… you know… the female in the campaign…
but once again, as soon as the precious is criticized, you are all up in friggin arms…
Let the New Yorker’s editor-in-chief, David Remnick, know your outrage over the magazine’s July 21 cover. Of course some will say that feminists have no sense of humor, but there is absolutely nothing satirical or funny about it. This is a vicious attack masquerading as satire.
By choosing to publish this artwork without context on its cover, the editors have created a visual representation of racial, ethnic, religious, and sexist fear-mongering. If the New Yorker wishes to condemn the myths, lies and prejudices being spread about Barack Obama, why not ridicule those who are perpetuating them, rather than furthering their cause.
As feminists we refuse to be silent. We who have been infuriated at the sexist media coverage of Hillary Clinton will not tolerate the racist and sexist coverage of Michelle and Barack Obama. Express your outrage to David Remnick and demand that the cover be pulled.
With women’s movement leaders like this… who needs the women’s movement, cause it sure doesn’t seem to be working for the women.
You people friggin suck!
Bad Timing… WRONG FRIGGIN CANDIDATE!!!!
You should be ashamed Eleanor… ashamed.
Thanks to Elspeth for pointing this out.
