Elle Magazine Labels Conservative Women “Problematic” Because Sexism And Trump [VIDEO]

Ahh labels. Such interesting things labels are. Especially when you tie labels and politics together. These days, one can’t be either for or against an issue without being labeled. One is unable to ask questions about an issue, a law, or an agenda without being labeled. In fact, labels are now being used as a battering ram to shut down discourse or alienate those who said, did, or believe the “wrong thing.” Think I’m wrong? Remember this from Hillary that Toni eviscerated last fall?

It seems that Elle Magazine in all it’s trendiness or something, has decided that conservative women have moved beyond “Deplorable” to “Problematic.” Last week they asked this burning question: “How Do We Criticize Problematic Women?”

The article, mostly a diatribe against Megyn Kelly, had this to say.

In fact, Kelly is part of a flotilla of unsympathetic ladies who have been thrust into prominence during the Trump administration. There’s the Instagram feminism and message-tested complicity of Ivanka Trump—who is often cast as a spoiled bimbo, rather than the canny and ethically bankrupt opportunist she appears to be. There’s Melania, a long-time apologist for her husband’s birtherism. There’s Kellyanne Conway, and the Internet’s brief yet fraught debate about what feminism owes her.

Holy smokes! Did you get all of that?? Ivanka Trump’s feminism is suspect not because she’s a smart businesswoman. Nope, it’s because the author has decided she’s ethically bankrupt. Melania, birtherism…Check! This author hits all the high points, and the low ones as well. Needless to say, she pointedly dissects conservative women, including Prime Minister Theresa May as the ones who have caused and invited confusion as to understanding how to navigate and deal with the pesky issues of sexism.

“We should not weep for Theresa May or any other conservative woman whose policies contribute to the continued oppression of women and minorities,” she concludes. “Even the most moon-eyed believer in feminist sisterhood must realize it’s all got to stop somewhere. Any harm done to Kellyanne Conway by calling her ‘Skeletor’ is vastly outweighed by the harm Conway has done, and intends to do, to the American people.”

Well folks, I find this drivel that Elle Magazine published “problematic.” Ms. Doyle, let me tell you why I’m one of THOSE problematic women:

Conservative women are “problematic” because we value life!

Conservative women are “problematic” because guns and that darned Second Amendment we like so much!

Conservative women are “problematic” because we use our brains, we live in reality, and we DON’T vote in lockstep because some harpy told us to!

Conservative women are “problematic” because we know that abortion is evil and say it out loud.

Conservative women are “problematic” because we think it’s stupid to wear ‘pussy hats’ and vagina costumes in a sad attempt to make a point.

Conservative women are “problematic” because rather than demanding good things in life must be handed to us on a silver platter, we go out and WORK for those rewards.

Conservative women are “problematic” because we deal with the consequences of our choices instead of playing the victim card.

Conservative women are “problematic” because we regard women such as Lady Margaret Thatcher, Condoleezza Rice, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Ambassador Nikki Haley, Carly Fiorina, and Joni Ernst – to name a few – as strong role models.

Conservative women are “problematic” because we disagree with and refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton even though everyone told us we were supposed to because …feminism and Trump!

Ms. Doyle, we are Deplorably Problematic because we love our country, we live in reality, we call it like it is, and we refuse your branding of us as sexist and unfeminine just because we dare to be conservative and proud of it!

    If women are supposed to be the equals of men, why should they be divided into ‘problematic women’ or ‘nasty women’? Why can’t they all just be women?

      Great question! But by golly – you ask someone on the left that question and heads will explode because triggering or something…

  • Scott says:

    Hmmm, in my experience, my wife can be both a problematic woman, and a nasty woman.. usually depending on which stupid thing I’ve done, or want to do… it’s a good thing she is, it keeps me on the straight and narrow, and I love her for it!
