Perez Hilton calls Miss California the B and C words for having the same stand on gay marriage as Barack Obama; "feminists" silent

Case study: a blond female beauty contestant says she is against gay marriage and she is publically called a Bitch and a Cunt. The fake media feminists at Salon.com can only snicker at this. They find it funny. CNN finds it “snarky.” Obama holds the same view and he is not called the N-word. When will women put and end to this devastating double standard?
Another sad tale of the anti-feminists at Salon and CNN failing to do basic feminist work. What work is that, you ask? Well, if a woman holds a view that is different than the one you wish she’d hold you don’t get to call her a BiT*H or a C**t. This is basic stuff. REALLY BASIC stuff. Feminism 101, for God’s sake!
WAKE UP women of America and see what is happening! The “feminists” in the media are Fake! They couldn’t support Hillary for potus, and they can’t even muster outrage when a woman is denigrated as a B or C on the basis of her position.
More Details of dustup:
Apparently a contestant for Miss America, Carrie Prejean, was asked for her opinion on gay marriage and she gave it. When it didn’t mesh with the questioner’s (gay blogger Mario Lavandeira, aka, Perez Hilton) he called her a Bi%ch and then said he’d meant to call her a C*unt. No apology! He stands by his C and B words.
The Salon anti-feminists are not up in arms that a woman is given the misogynist backhand for answering the question as she saw fit and, for that matter, in the SAME fashion Obama answered the question. NO the article is EXUBERANT that the backlash against Miss California took place. Can anyone wonder why these women didn’t support Hillary? They found that Hillary didn't do this or that, just so, but Obama’s missteps were inlaid golden by his male DNA.
Here is an excerpt from the Salon anti-feminists as they wax hippy-dippity happy that there is outrage over her opposition to gay marriage. But not one word of condemnation over the B or C words spit at the woman.
Again, there is no condemnation of calling a fellow female the most sexist things possible; only excitement and glee over the episode. CAN’t wait to see who gets called a B or C next year...if they answer wrong.
I want to ask Salon a question: if Miss New York is a black female who opposes gay marriage (and recall that blacks in California voted overwhelmingly against gay marriage) can we call her Bitch, Cunt and Nigger, or is nigger out and only Bitch and Cunt in?? Why can’t these women see that removing bitch and cunt are essential to women’s advancement?...As essential as removing the n-word was to black advancement in America.
I am fully in favor of gay marriage. My thoughts on it are summed up by a poster I saw on the DC metro line during the Bush years. It featured black man and black woman and said “Marriage is good for you!” (I paraphrase here but those where almost the exact words.) Someone had scrawled in thick Sharpie black pen over the poster: “If it is so great, why not let gays do it?”
Yeah, my thoughts exactly. But…..I would NEVER EVER have expected glee from a so-called feminist site over calling anyone who did not agree with that sentiment, the B-word or the C-word. Wait… hold that. …I’d never have expected such sexism from Salon until they showed their dirty hands with HRC and Palin this past year. The Broadsheet Salon post on Ms. Prejean is dripping with sexism and distain.
This drips with female distain. And sadly we must once again call Salon on their willingness to tolerate and commit sexism when they don’t agree with what a woman has to say. What is ultimately funny is the bullshit that Oprah quipped about being a free woman who can do and say as she pleases. She can only do and say what she pleases if she is willing to be called the Cword or the Bword.
CNN put this headline out: Perez Hilton Still Snarky about Beauty B****.
Hello? Perez is not snarky, he is a dangerous man who is sending out misogyny to millions of readers.
Women MUST demand CHANGE! It is not OK to denigrate blacks with the n-word and gays with the faggot word, AND women MUST DEMAND equal respect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BtW, tune into Media Matters, another so-called feminist site, who tolerate sexism so long as anti-feminist feminists commit it, or gay angry males. If Fox news had called Miss California a C*nt or a Bitch on the basis of her support for abortion rights, Women's Media Center would HOWL.
Salon link: (read only to see the Lack of outrage over the B and C name calling.)
CNN link: (note how the reporter Fails to point out the misogyny of the name calling or take the opportunity to grill Perez on his double standard for Obama and Miss CA. You know, I want to thank Mr. Perez for giving this opportunity to showcase this issue.
