What is seen as the new forward moving agendas concerning women's rights these days? Maybe if we all had a more accurate handle on the new issues, we could more accurately "judge" Palin on all her women's rights gaffes.

I can't believe that a 70s Feminist would even consider voting for McCain/Palin. Amazing.
Barbie - will post and answer you in a bit. Am on the phone w/ my elderly mom, who is reciting her latest healthcare debacle. Yes, sandwich generation here.

Wow, talk about some angry women on here. I'm rather happy about this choice for VP.....she has the guts to stand up to corruption in her own party....I'm impressed.

And I'm not quite sure why we are considered less of a woman if we don't believe in abortion. I would rather see an evil terrorist waterboarded than an innocent special needs baby forced into an early birth just to be discarded.

I have a right to feel my way as you have a right to feel yours.....why can't you just accept that rather than spewing hate and assuming I'm less of a woman for my beliefs.

Oh.....and no matter how many times you lecture your teenagers.....they pretty much need to figure it out on their own. Sometimes they make mistakes. Sometimes they don't. I don't know about you but my mother wasn't watching my every move when I was 17. Thank goodness.

I would have voted for Rice. Now, there's a real career woman.

Oprah just addressed the press about this.

Turns out it's just another big fat republican lie.

The end.

However, their voices are always the LOUDEST and the MOST SHRILL.
Can you give me an example of a FemiNazi? Would it be someone like Ann Coulter?

So you advocate ABSTINENCE only education in High School Health classes? You don't want your kids to know what a condom is, or better yet to have access to them?

The only good thing about Mrs. Palin is that the term 'feminazi' is dead and buried. I mean, if SHE isn't a 'feminazi', I don't know who is.

Why are right wingers such conspiracy nuts?

They asked her and she said it wasn't true, and there was no division amongst her staff.
