National Organization for (Ugly) Women Holds National Convention in Detroit

By Debbie Schlussel
The National Organization for (Ugly) Women holds its annual convention here in the Detroit area, today, tomorrow, and Sunday.
Ironically, the convention is being held in the headquarters of female subjugation in America, Dearbornistan. But don’t hold your breath for the Steinemized and Friedaned hags there to decry–or utter even a peep about–the women surrounding them throughout Dearbornistan who are nothing more than future jihadist birthing machines wearing ugly drapes over their every inch.
Instead, the NOW convention will feature alliances with fellow ugly women. A convention “highlight” from today:

Cross-Cultural Movement Building: Arab & Arab-American Women on Issues that Affect Us All, 9:30-10:45 a.m.

And maybe they’re making alliances with female pan-Islamists because, while the misogynist jihad to which Muslim women give birth is on the up-swing, the NOW hags’ jihad against men, motherhood, family, and good-looking women is almost DOA. At 41 years old, the organization looks more like 81. And all the plastic surgery in the world won’t make it relevant.
In a sign that the organization is daying a slow and sagging (bra-less–they burned them, remember?) death, they only expect 600 lesbians and men-haters, er . . . women to attend.
Lamenting the senior citizen status of this dated, anachronistic organization are front-page stories and articles in both the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit Newsistan.
The Newsistan reports that NOW can’t find anyone interested in replacing the gerontological uglies who are dying out:

A Picture Speaks 1,000 Words:

Bitter Biddies (and 1 Girlie-Man) of NOW

“A lot of younger women see the world as equal, even though it’s not,” said 28-year-old Andrea Poliak, a Wayne State University student who is not active in any group fighting for women’s issues.
Young women who are active say they appreciate what NOW has done, but they consider themselves part of the “third wave” of feminists and say NOW is not in touch with where younger women think the movement should be going.
“I feel bad about saying this, but (NOW) is a bit dated,” said Kate Palmer, 24, of Wixom.
Mary Raveane, a 49-year-old Royal Oak woman who was a member of NOW in her younger days, is astonished so many younger women don’t want to be involved in organizations that help women get ahead. When she recently attended culinary school, she tried to get some of the younger women to join a national organization representing female chefs. But they weren’t interested.

Liberal, feminist Newsistan columnist Laura Berman–well known for her past column saying that female strippers were more worthy than female Kmart cashiers (yup, that’s “feminism”)–is very sad that NOW is on its last legs:

NOW is fighting for its life, as its membership ages and new feminists — the kind who don’t cringe at the word — aren’t easy to find.
Injustice hasn’t been killed off. Men still rule. [DS: Really? Then, how do you have your ridiculous, whiny column?] . . .
Many of its members are grandmothers now, or great-grandmothers, who want younger people to cherish their rights and the fight it took to win them.
A few young women, activists of a new generation, are still paying attention.
Julie Funke, a 28-year-old certified public accountant from Royal Oak, who has gone to a few NOW meetings, says: “They’re the coolest older ladies you’ll ever meet.”
Hmmm. I know just what she means.

Hmmm. I don’t. The members of the National Organization for (Ugly) Women are many things. But “coolest”–or even just “cool”–ain’t among them.
And BTW, speaking of not cool, don’t expect any hijab-burning sessions like the bra-burning of the ’70s. The hags have changed their tune when it comes to what they see as garments of oppression and subjugation.

These women are so out of touch; as are most leftists. They’re so constipated with hatred for anything traditionally American, they can’t see their own irrellevance. Hatred for family, Judeo-Christian values, work ethic, traditional man-woman marriages, you name it. They don’t give a tinkers’ damn about womens rights. Hatred for American values trumps all, hence their silence with regard to Islam. The enemy of their enemy is their friend!

come on….that’s a photoshop pic if I’ve ever seen one!

Did you know that nearly 50% of all black pregnancies end in abortion. The comparable figure for whites is 16%, which is half what it was in 1973. Blacks make up 12% of the US population, but account for 32% of all abortions. Every day, 1500 black pregnancies are terminated, many in Planned Parenthood clinics.
So, the white, upper-class, feminist push for abortion “rights” amounts to an anti-black genocide. White women simply don’t have many abortions any more. Black women do, so much so that black fertility rates have fallen below white fertility rates in the US.
It’s no wonder that NOW, Planned Parenthood, and its sleazy bretheren don’t feature many black members. They effectively exist, at this point, to reduce the future black population of the United States; a silent Holocaust.
Mercifully, Hispanic women have not fully succomed to white feminist pleas to abort their babies en masse. That said, the Hispanic abortion rate is still higher than the white rate, and groups like NOW and Planned Parenthood are working diligently to dramatically increase the number of Hispanic abortions.
It’s racist and it’s sick.

Debbie
Reminds me of Rush’s 24th undeniable truth of life

Infidel Pride on July 14, 2007 at 3:52 am

Yeah they are SO into women’s true rights that they don’t speak out loud against Female Genital Mutilation or the repressive Burka. Their voice is non existant among Children who get sexually abused.
They made me sick when their spokeswomen over the years bash men and want to put men above women. Every time they were in an interview, I cringed at their words towards men and about men. I hoped that men would not think that most women even agree with that radical group.

Highrise on July 14, 2007 at 7:06 am

why does this group of old crows still support the gruop of women teaser like ted kennedy and bill clinton, this front was started to expose men treating women unfairly these 2 are the biggest offenders but you never hear them bashing them ,WHY IS THAT NOW GANG!!!!!!!!!!

PNAMARBLE on July 14, 2007 at 8:31 am

oh yeah i forgot they are more of a lesbo group than fighting for equal rights for women today

PNAMARBLE on July 14, 2007 at 8:33 am

The truth is, they don’t give a rats ass about poor women, black women, hispanic women, abused Muslim women (the main purpose of this religion, so far as I can tell, is to create a situation where men can dominate women).
This is all about upper-class white women feeling good about themselves.
Now, if they had come to Dearbornistan and demanded that Muslim women be liberated from their menfolk, then I might reconsider my views.
Somehow, I think I’m going to be waiting a long-time.
Remember Norwegian feminist Dr. Unni Wikan (from this article):
http://www.frontpagemagazine.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=25226
The worldview of Oslo Professor of Anthropology, Dr. Unni Wikan, is perfect in representing leftist feminists’ stand on Muslim rape and Islamic gender apartheid. Wikan’s solution for the high incidence of Muslims raping Norwegian women stresses neither the punishment of the perpetrators nor the repudiation of the Islamic theology that legitimizes such abuse of women. Instead, Wikan recommends that Norwegian women veil themselves. This is because, in Wikan’s view, Western women must take their share of responsibility for the rapes, since they are not dressing and behaving according to Muslim understanding. The Norwegian women, in her view, are to realize that they live in a multicultural society and should, therefore, adapt themselves to it. Sheikhs Taj al-Din al-Hilali and Shahid Mehdi would be proud.

Just seeing that picture of NOW makes me laugh at these fossils that still think they matter in today’s world.
Funny how the media never mentions that this group never had a minority member. Hey…i think I figured out how we can shut them down.

Squirrel3D on July 14, 2007 at 2:58 pm

OK, this has been up since the 13th. You’ve all had your chance. I’ve been champing at the bit, I’m gonna’ say it, fugly.

As stated by a few above, the biggest hypocrisy of this group is their tolerance of Islam’s treatment of women.
While sitting on a beach in Egypt with my daughter’s bikini-clad ultra-liberal friend, she was watching a group of Egyptian women going in the water covered from head to foot and saying how much she’d love to go over and tell them how oppressed they are. I let that comment simmer for a few minutes, then asked her if she considered herself a multi-culturalist. “You bet I am!!!”, was her answer. I then asked her how she reconciled respect for other cultures with wanting to end the oppression of Muslim women. The question was met with stony silence (although her other bikini-wearing liberal friend made a hey-I-never-thought-of-it-that-way face). It just goes to prove that if you let liberals prattle on long enough they’ll always contradict themselves.

I remember Helen Reddy’s famous “hit,” “I am Woman.” It begins, “I am woman, hear me roar, in numbers too big to ignore…” What a laugh, now. It looked like the feminist movement was so powerful then. What happened? It is simple: Nature caught up with them. They had to reproduce. It’s called the biological time clock. Funny how liberalism works…okay, it doesn’t. Nature kills liberalism, every time.
Debbie, why not create a new organization? Call it the…drats! I cannot come up with a good acronym. Anyway, it would be for beautiful, conservative women. Unlike the idiot NOW, it wouldn’t be dissolved by Mother Nature.
After all, didn’t anyone ever tell you that Mother Nature is a male chauvanist.

Yeah, thank goodness we have more and more hispanic babies.

“Many of its members are grandmothers now, or great-grandmothers, who want younger people to cherish their rights and the fight it took to win them.”
Unfortunately, as a teen I fell in with a group of older NOW women who “mothered me” and convinced me that I did not have to have children in order to be a “complete woman.” I should, instead, get as many college degrees as I could and spend the rest of my life on the career track hamster wheel. Also, why reproduce and overpopulate the planet when I could be a compassionate steward of the earth? What a schmuck I am for believing this b.s. These old crones are now bouncing their grandkids on their knees, and I’m kicking myself in my childless, perimenopausal touchis.

NOW should change its name to THEN.

Watch Teletubby and Moses get arrested at the Capitol while angry bystanders demand the release of the purple teletubby, the ìmoral fiber of America.î See activists hit the streets demonstrating against Ted Kennedyís Thought Control Bill to give homosexuals special privileges. Go to http://publicadvocateusa.org/ or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUBj51aLV1A
This shows Public Advocate demonstrating in Washington, DC, protesting the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Protection Act (H.R. 1592), which would grant special rights to homosexuals. This law would add sexual orientation to federal hate crimes statutes.
