Feminist Groups Silent on Arnold’s Sexist Slam on Melania Trump

Feminists have spent the final week mourning Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s failed presidential bid.

The Massachusetts Senator had a plan for every part, they cried. Only sexism might clarify her stunning fall from entrance runner to additionally ran standing. She wasn’t “likable” sufficient, sexist reporters alleged.

What else might clarify her failure?

The Guardian mentioned Sen. Warren “endured sexism at each step of her marketing campaign.” The Senator herself fortunately performed into the narrative.

“Gender on this race — you understand, that’s the entice query for each girl,” Warren mentioned, standing exterior her dwelling in Cambridge, Massachusetts, after saying she could be suspending her marketing campaign Thursday. “If you say, ‘Yeah, there was sexism on this race,’ everybody says, ‘Whiner.’ And if you happen to say, ‘There was no sexism,’ a couple of bazillion girls assume, ‘What planet do you reside on?’”

Feminists lastly grew silent this week, but it surely had nothing to do with Sen. Warren’s delegate debacle.

Over the weekend actor/comic Tom Arnold lobbed a gross, offensive Tweet at First Lady Melania Trump. Arnold’s fame of late includes his relentless assaults on her husband, President Donald Trump.

The “True Lies” alum even hosted a present on Viceland referred to as “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes.” The conspiracy-laced collection ended after one season, the titular tapes nonetheless out of attain.

It seems Arnold loathes the First Lady as a lot as her husband, given the next Twitter message.

Certainly the identical feminists who rallied behind Sen. Warren would stand up towards Arnold.

Feminism is about feminine empowerment, not partisan bickering. No First Lady, no matter get together affiliation, deserves to be handled in that style. The feedback play to the ugliest tropes that sexualize girls.

Feminists would lead the bipartisan cost towards Arnold, little question. Or so one would assume.

HiT reached out to 5 feminist teams for touch upon Arnold’s Tweet.

  • The National Organization for Women (NOW)
  • NOW’s Hollywood department
  • UltraViolet
  • Equality Now
  • The Feminist Majority Foundation

The teams had been requested Monday for both a short interview tied to Arnold’s feedback or a press release reacting to his verbiage.

No group a lot as responded to HiT’s press requests. This shouldn’t shock anybody, although.

Feminists routinely look the opposite manner when conservative girls are underneath assault. Consider the crude feedback made towards Nikki Haley, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Laura Ingraham and different right-leaning girls.

Groups like NOW hardly ever, if ever, converse up on their behalf. Yet when TBS despatched out a Tweet evaluating Hillary Clinton’s cackle to that of a hyena, the community’s personal Samantha Bee referred to as the joke past the pale.

And TBS swiftly withdrew the Tweet with a full-bodied apology.

It’s why the present First Lady will get no apology from Arnold. Nor will feminists rally round her in any manner, form or kind.

Modern feminism doesn’t assume conservative girls deserve equality, not to mention respect.
