Roseanne Barr: Defending S.E. Cupp is more disgusting than Photoshopping a penis in her mouth

Roseanne Barr is running as a “feminist” candidate in the Green Party presidential primary.

She’s such an advocate for women that she thinks defending S.E. Cupp and the rest of the conservative gender traitors is vile. More disgusting than the sexual degradation of Cupp in retaliation for her political views.

Gosh, why not go all the way and say Cupp was asking for it?

Robin Morgan, who co-founded the Women’s Media Center with Gloria Steinem, responded politely.

@TheRealRoseanne I've admired ur work 4 yrs. But when 1 woman is demeaned by sexist misogyny, whatever her opinions, all women r demeaned.

Funny, when it’s a member of the feminist sisterhood like Roseanne Barr, Morgan can’t quite manage to summon any outrage.

Roseanne reiterated her belief that the virtual rape of a conservative woman should be ignored.

@TheRobinMorgan it's a hard call, but defending the indefensible is not a common sense thing-it leads to lemming-like thought patterns IMO

@TheRobinMorgan i understand that-but when a woman who works to dispossess women is attacked- i dont think we should come 2 her aid

Morgan went on the defensive in her final reply.

@TheRealRoseanne We're not defending her atrocious politics, just saying misogynistic attacks targeting her as a woman per se harm us all.

— Robin Morgan (@TheRobinMorgan) May 24, 2012

Typical. The most important thing to Morgan is ensuring that no one mistake her defense of S.E. Cupp for an endorsement of pro-life views. Gasp! Can’t let anyone think you agree with any “atrocious” conservative positions. (As if that was likely to happen.)

Don’t expect Morgan and her Ms. Magazine buddies to call for condemnations of Roseanne Barr’s words anytime soon. She’s a progressive; she gets a pass.

UPDATE:

Roseanne doubles down and finally tweets what she’s really thinking: S.E. Cupp was asking for it.

@D_R_Berry @secupp what goes around seems to come around.

sometimes feminist spokeswomen are pro-censorship, and that wont work in America. Supporting woman haters 'rights' backfires on them.
