Amber A'Lee Frost and Liza Featherstone: Radical Chic Ladies Auxiliary attacks feminists


Welcome Tweeters. More of my thoughts on Doug Henwood, Liza Featherstone, Amber A'Lee Frost and the Radical Chic




I've mentioned Amber A'Lee Frost and Liza Featherstone before - both of them are members of what I like to think of as the Radical Chic Ladies Auxiliary. Their mission is to constantly suck up to radical chic lefty men by attacking actual feminists every chance they get.

Or as Doug Henwood (Featherstone's much-older husband and number one leftwing Hillary Clinton hater) likes to call it "bourgeois feminism." But that Marxist lingo is just a thin veneer to cover the fundamental misogyny of Henwood's position, which he shares with old lefty men generally.

You can see an example of Frost and Featherstone's hatred of actual feminists in this screen cap from Facebook, sucking up to their lefty men in this needless attack on a Ms. Magazine article.

How dare Ms. Magazine suggest, as this article does that rape is not just an ISIS problem. Bourgeois bitches!

They also hate Rebecca Solnit for daring to write an article about mansplaining.

I don't think I've seen as many attacks on feminists coming from Katie Roiphe as I do from the Ladies Auxiliary.

In other news The Nation has decided to support Sanders. I was trying to decide whether or not to re-up my Nation subscription, so now I know the answer to that.

Sady Doyle continues to fight the good fight on Twitter.



And she shares this excellent piece: Losing Bernie: My Journey from #FeelTheBern to #HillYes

The Ladies Auxiliary hates Doyle as much as they hate any other "bourgeois feminists" which is always a high recommendation in my book.



I had to laugh at Featherstone expressing disgust at Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch's engagement though.


Yeah Featherstone, what a concept! A woman marries a much older balding unattractive man who is full of himself! Shocking!*

Talk about lack of self-awareness. I guess that's what it takes to be a member of the Radical Chic Ladies Auxiliary.

I will be monitoring their activities and attacks on Hillary Clinton and feminists generally leading up to the 2016 election. So far the feminists that Henwood and his Ladies Auxiliary have attacked include: me,  Sady Doyle, Hillary Clinton, Sheryl Sandberg, Rebecca Solnit, Michelle Goldberg, Gloria Steinem, The Fawcett Society, Ms. Magazine. I'm sure there are many more, these are just the ones I found on a quick run-through of recent commentary. For Amber A'Lee Frost, especially, there doesn't seem to be any feminist she won't find an excuse to attack. So of course she loves the smear-mongering feminist-hating bully Mikki Kendall. Because that's just who the fuck Amber A'lee Frost is.

*Although Henwood probably hates feminists more than Rupert Murdoch does.

    Hillary lost (in part due to clueless, contemptuous, out-of-touch, privileged, WHITE morons like Doyle, Solnit, etc).

    Liberal/bougie/choice feminism like yours is dying and the coherent, useful and socialist feminism of people like Frost is on the rise.

    Finally, you sound spectacularly bitter and resentful. I mean, not one but TWO digs at Featherstone's partner. How... pathetic.

    Oh wait, nevermind... I just skimmed through some of your writing and you are just some insane racist idiot.

  2. Spoken like a true brocalist asshole who hates and smears feminists - the typical fan base for Frost/Featherstone/Henwood. And a coward who posts anonymously. Perfect.

  3. FYI - HRC got 1.7M more votes than Trump. She lost due to the electoral college not due to the people of the US.

  6. The popular vote is meaningless. Not just because the electoral college is what decides the winner, but because huge numbers of people in non-swing states don't even bother voting.

    Also, your identity cult was thoroughly discredited last month when it helped elect Donald Trump, so I'd suggest finding a new outlet for your incoherent, apolitical narcissism. It's fucking everything up.
