Why Must Male Candidates Call Their Female Opponents Whores? And Why Does Palin Support Them?
Oops! Here comes a deleted tweet…
Joe Miller has deleted this incredibly stupid tweet, most likely because it calls his female opponent a whore. It linked to a Daily Caller story about Murkowski possibly running as a Libertarian if/when she loses the close primary held three days ago, the results of which are still being counted.
As Jezebel asks, does Sarah Palin condone such language from her prize candidate?
As previously discussed, there’s a very obvious reason why misogynists delight in calling women ‘whores’: ‘whore’ and its cognates are intended to put women in our place by reminding us of our proper function.
None of this will bother Palin, of course, who picks up feminism and puts it down when it suits her. More to come on that.
