    Part of what I love about feministing is the thoughtful, multi-faceted analysis of its writers. While I’m definitely happy with the decision of the Court of Appeals, I’m disappointed that we’re stopping the analysis at ”well, the Obama admin is restricting access to reproductive services. ANTIFEMINISTS.” As a Feminist, I receive a lot of criticism that the movement doesn’t recognize its allies from its enemies. It’s analysis like this that I think make that statement legitimate. The Obama Admin, and Sebelius in particular, fought for women’s reproductive rights in the Affordable Care Act. Moreover, Obama has done his share for a lot of feminist causes- appointing women judges, refusing to defend DOMA, signing Lily Ledbetter. Is the administration perfect? Nope. Is is anywhere near as awesome as Hillarys would have been? Obvi not. Should we critique it? Absolutely. But let’s be fair and thorough and avoid blanket statements.
