Loudon Blames Straw Feminists for Ray Rice Violence

Gina Loudon, who really does appear to be a certifiable moron, has an entire Worldnetdaily column explaining how feminism — not the real feminism, of course, but the straw feminism bouncing around in the ample room between her ears — is to blame for Ray Rice beating up his fiance.

Where were the bra-burning, old-guard feminists this week in the Ray Rice abuse controversy?

If women and men are truly the same as they claim, then why weren’t they screaming in protest of his punishment? If women are the same as men, then how can they argue that a woman beaten by her boyfriend deserves special protection? Were they consistent, the feminist hypocrites would be decrying the NFL for extending protection to women that they do not need (by their own standards).

Feminists demand that training be “equalized” to facilitate women becoming firefighters and combat troops (in mixed-gender units), but on the other hand, they sit quietly when special protections are extended to women. Is there one intellectually honest liberal who will point to this hypocrisy?

Lou Dobbs stated on his show this week considering the subject of the NFL punishment of Rice, “I think we can say that we know one thing very clearly. A man should never strike a woman, period.” Yes, Lou, yes we can all say that. All of us, except the old-guard feminists.

Really? So quote one of those “old-guard feminists” who think that men should be allowed to beat the hell out of women because the genders are equal in every conceivable way? Oh, you can’t? What a surprise. I hope she has bleach to get the blood stains from that straw woman she’s killing out of her clothes.

    She isn’t saying that. In her mind, that is the logical conclusion (because men are allowed to just punch each other in the face like that and no one cares) to equality. She thinks she is pointing out their hypocrisy.

    I’m also not sure that “feminist” have been demanding training be “equalized” whatever that means. Presumably she thinks people have been demanding that the standards for men be lowered so that men and women can have an equal standard.

    What special protection? If Ray Rice had punched out a dude, it still would have been a crime.

    not the real feminism, of course, but the straw feminism bouncing around in the ample room between her ears — is to blame for Ray Rice beating up his fiance.

    As commenters have pointed out before, this is the famous christofascist principle of individual responsibility.

    It’s the fault of demons feminism, Democrats, atheism, TV, the woman, premarital sex, evolution, lack of prayer in school, flouridation, vaccines etc.. It is the fault of everyone and everything but…Ray Rice.

    Ray Rice is simply a meat puppet in the grip of vast, unknowable, and unseen forces from beyond space and time. Hmmm, well that explains it. It’s all Cthulhu’s fault.

    Equality is getting suckerpunched by someone twice your size in an elevator. Look, if she truly wanted to be equal, she could’ve suckerpunching him back while she was crumpled on the floor, unconscious. That’s just common sense, feminists!

    To be fair, Ms Loudon (and Ms Thompson) didn’t actually write the copy defending Mr Rice, that’s man’s work.

    No, their job is was provide an attractive 3 by 3 photo to go above the articles, keep their mouths shut* and make cups of coffee when requested by the real (male) journalists.

    What she doesn’t get is that equality means that if a woman athlete were to beat up her spouse (of either gender), we as feminists would (or at least should) be just as upset. The same would go for a male athlete beating up his husband.

    Equality means being against any form of domestic abuse.
