Friday (Not) Feminist Fuck Yeah: Michele Bachmann

I know what you’re thinking: Why would I ever give a Feminist Fuck Yeah to Michele Bachmann? Because she isn’t one — a feminist, that is — and acknowledges that very fact. So, yes — thank you, Michele Bachmann, for not appropriating the word and the movement like fellow GOP lady Sarah Palin did. After all, it allows us to spend our time focusing on what really makes you suck as a person.

(Now if we can only get her to acknowledge that her “Empowered American” bit is actually code for “bigoted asshole.”)

    That’s what I though too. Unfortunately I don’t think it’ll stop the “But Michele Bachmann opposes abortion rights and she’s a real feminist” remarks. Use some women to oppress all women is a favorite tactic of the Right.
