Last Frontier Women Don’t Tolerate #Misogynists

Full text of Sarah Palin’s FaceBook Post (and if you don’t follow her FaceBook posts, Whatsamattah U?):

Two fellow Alaskan women, Kirsten Powers and Penny Lee, penned a letter to the New York Times calling out misogynist attacks on women in public life.

They included this interesting aside: “Coincidentally we both hail from Alaska — where women are treated as equals — so perhaps our threshold for this kind of behavior is less than here in the Lower 48.”

As an Alaskan woman, I completely agree. Women up here do not tolerate the sexist stereotyping and behavior.

Up here, I’m constantly around commercial fishermen who curse like sailors, oil field workers with hardcore blue collar work ethics, tattooed-up soldiers serving on our military bases, long-haul truck drivers, motorheads, hunters and sport fishermen; and yet I don’t know anyone who talks about women the way these misogynists on TV do with their degrading comments, which includes comments mocking those with special needs.

I grew up hunting, fishing, playing sports, plowing snow, and chopping wood just like the guys. My parents raised my sisters and me to never consider gender an unequal element in anything. (In fact, today is my Dad’s birthday, and I want to give him a shout out because as a science teacher and track coach, he treated all of his students and athletes equally with respect and encouragement.) My daughters have participated on football, hockey, and wrestling teams just like the guys. We even dress like the guys at times (or they, like us) in warm camo hoodies and Carharts. It’s accepted up here because the environment is rugged and real, and our Alaskan elements are a great equalizer.

Women and men are equals in every way in the Last Frontier, and real men are not threatened by strong women. Real men don’t insult women with gross sexist comments meant to demean and objectify them.

These misogynists wouldn’t know how real men behave. I cannot imagine them working on my commercial fishing skiff in Bristol Bay, or driving our trucks to haul gear out to a remote cabin, or fueling up the float plane, or even having a tinge of grease under their fingernails which symbolizes the hard work needed to fuel the nation’s economy. And yet these are all things average Alaskan women do everyday. If these misogynists said one of their disgusting comments up here in person to an “Alaskan chick,” they would have to replace their veneered teeth.

I personally do not seek an apology from these narrow-minded men. With a full family and productive “to-do” list everyday, I just don’t have time for them. But I do feel sorry for them and for their obvious need to compensate for something that’s missing in their own lives, which compels them to belittle others in order to feel big. And I feel sorry for our culture for having to listen to them. America deserves better. I applaud Kirsten and Penny for taking a stand when too many feminists don’t speak up when the attacks are directed at their conservative sisters. And unfortunately too many men, like our president, will only defend certain women, not all women.

– Sarah Palin

(Sarah’s title altered a mite for Twitter purposes.)

I cannot really add any more to that, but to say when you have the Liberal Kirsten Powers and the TEA Party grass-roots Conservative Sarah Palin blasting you, you’re in deep doo-doo. And to add lumber to the funeral pyre, I already linked Bristol Palin’s article blasting the outright misogynist and million-dollar Obama donor Bill Maher.

Kirsten Powers, a Liberal woman, is blasting the misogynistic Liberals for their misogyny (that’s just one of multiple occasions where Powers blasted Liberals), and naming names, but not taking prisoners. Sarah Palin, more highly favored among Republicans than any Republican candidate for President, is blasting the misogynistic Liberals for their misogyny. Bristol Palin, who like her mother was and is a victim of some of the most offensive misogynistic attacks from Liberals, is blasting the misogynistic Liberals for their misogyny.

If Obama were smart (fat chance), he’d demand his Super PAC (you know, that place that allows million-dollar donations, like what Obama basically claimed was evil until he realized he needed them to get re-elected) return that million dollars it received from a radical Leftist misogynist who delved into the worst kind of misogyny to date. But since Obama ain’t all that brilliant, if he does demand that money be returned, it’ll be multiple months late and multiple dollars short (interest accrual, anyone?).

No, the absolute worst misogynists are members of the Democrat Party, hands down. (Or hand’s down, so they can understand what I said.) And that is further proof that the Democrat leadership and the outspoken Liberals are (nearly) all hypocrites. Those like Kirsten Powers (who may yet be turned to the good side and become a dreaded neo-con (do look up the term, Leftists and Paulbots, before you make udder fools of yourselves), aphrael, Jeff, and a great many 2008 Liberals who have become neo-con since are likely all having their eyes opened by the vile spewings of the Liberal leadership. Ad if Obama wants to win later this year, he needs to spew them out of his mouth.

    Men and women are certainly different — and vive la différence! — but we are not as different as some people seem to think. Men are, on average, significantly larger, faster and stronger than women, but that does no mean that women do not, and did not in the past, step right up to do their share of the physical work when it had to be done. yeah, when men get together and talk about women (certainly one of our favorite subjects!), sometimes the language and topics aren’t always something to be printed, but, if they told the truth, the same thing happens when women get together and talk about men. Sex has a way of bringing that out. But men appreciate women who are right there, doing their part, just as women respect men who do their share of the work.

    What our friends on the left don’t respect is a woman who falls outside of their stereotypes about what women are supposed to believe. Sarah Palin should have been a great role model for the left, a strong woman who unseated a long-term icon in Alaska politics, and was a successful governor, but she had the unmitigated gall to not be grateful by being pro-life. Worse, when she discovered that the child with whom she was pregnant was going to be born handicapped, she both insulted and actually harmed women everywhere by not having him disposed of. Why, her actions call into question the abortions justified by other women because their unborn children might be handicapped! Heck, just having more than two children was sin enough for them.

    Something that has always amazed me about our friends on the left is that, while they don’t really respect the opinions of conservative white men, they at least don’t seem to think it strange that white men actually can hold different opinions. But when it comes to women, to blacks, to Hispanics, to any minority (other than the Jews), the notion that those people could hold opinions which differ from theirs is not only not respected, but seen as wholly illegitimate. They really don’t respect the idea that anyone other than white males can have independent thought.

    I agree with you 100%. Liberals are such hypocrites, and of course because the mass media is primarily liberal this message of hypocrisy is perpetuated in the media. It is truly sad that Republican and Conservative women and minorities can be called any name in the book. I know I should not be shocked at this blatant hypocrisy, but it still does shock me at how Liberals do not see this hypocrisy, and simply think that it is perfectly acceptable to make disparaging remarks about women and minorities if they Republican or Conservative.
