Quote of the Day: Ashley Judd is just like Todd Akin

In the latest conservative attempt to discredit Ashley Judd before she’s even said she’s running for the Senate, the Daily Caller points to her history of “bizarre” feminist comments:

By getting in the race with this sort of baggage, Judd runs the risk of being portrayed as a Todd Akin-esque candidate – meaning voters simply decide she’s unqualified to serve as a senator, because her comments are so outrageous and extreme that people can’t bring themselves to vote for her.

LOL. Yep, recognizing that sexism exists and believing that is a problem is “outrageous” and “extreme.” Totally the same as taking the fringe position of opposing abortion in cases of rape and making offensive–and scientifically ignorant–comments suggesting that women regularly ...

Republicans attack Ashley Judd before she announces she’s running for Senate

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is polling at 47% in Kentucky. Under 50% is the danger zone for incumbents. So it’s no surprise that American Crossroads SuperPac run by Karl Rove is attacking actress Ashley Judd, before she even makes a final decision about running for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky. The $10,000 ad buy will run for 2 weeks in the state.

The ad paints Ashley as a Hollywood elite and a blind Obama disciple. The problem is that these two things couldn’t be farther from the truth. When I was at the Democratic Convention this summer, I met Ashley Judd….at Target. She was shopping like a regular person.

See Ashley Judd is not a liberal Hollywood elite. She’s definitely ...

Ashley Judd nails patriarchy

Her analysis may fall short when it comes to hip hop, but Ashley Judd just nailed an important part of how patriarchy functions. This comes from a column at The Daily Beast in which Judd responds to criticism of her apparently “puffy” appearance. Judd calls out the way the attacks come from women as well as men:

That women are joining in the ongoing disassembling of my appearance is salient. Patriarchy is not men. Patriarchy is a system in which both women and men participate. It privileges, inter alia, the interests of boys and men over the bodily integrity, autonomy, and dignity of girls and women. It is subtle, insidious, and never more dangerous than when women passionately deny ...
