News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Selling out on feminism

Ann Althouse offers a new insight to the "wardrobe malfunction" controversy, asking why the left didn't object to the way Justin Timberlake objectified Janet Jackson by ripping off her clothes.

Her conclusion: Concern about sexual predation suddenly dropped in 1992, when a man who shared their overall political beliefs and supported abortion, but used women sexually, wanted to be President. "Feminism has never recovered!" she notes.

I agree it's a travesty that feminists didn't stand up for their principles when they had a chance. It shouldn't be hard to say, "It doesn't matter who you are, how much money you have, or how you vote. A man in a position of power does not proposition women under him. It is immoral and a crime."
