"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society" - Naomi Wolfe.
Ashley Judd is the bob-wearing brunette member of the performing Judd family. The Judds were a very poor family until Mom Judd decided she and her oldest daughter, Wynonna (who was about 13 at the time) sang well enough to cut a record. They did and eventually they became superstars in Country music. Because Ashley was so younger than Wynonna and because Wynonna made so much money, Ashley received some advantages Wynonna never had. Ashley was educated and became an Hollywood actress. It was while at college, Ashley was first introduced to feminism through a women's studies class. Ever since that fateful class, Ashley Judd has declared she is a feminist.
It was at NARAL's big pro-abort demonstration on the Mall in D.C. in March of 2004 that Ashley Judd caught the eyes of the feminists. Unlike the majority of feminists, Ashley Judd is beautiful. And because I know that feminists rallies are really a meat market because one of my older and attractive feminist friends told me that she always got asked out on more dates at Ms. functions than anywhere else (that was in the late'70's and early '80's), it's not suprising that the feminists liked what they saw in Ashley. What they told her they liked was her handmade t-shirt she wore to the rally. In fact they liked it so much they asked her to come over to the Ms. studios and be photographed for the magazine wearing it. Ashley did. What the Ms. magazine's photographer did to Ashley Judd is as perverted a trick as any Playboy magazine photographer might employ to enhance a model's attractiveness for its male readers. The photographer butched Ashley. Ashley was butched her because butch is how Ms. readers like their fellow feminists to look. Ashley Judd is mistaken when she thinks this is what a feminist looks like. This is what a feminist looks like; 1. 2. 3. 4.
When you read an inteview of Ashley Judd, she really doesn't sound like a feminist. The only thing truly feminist about is her ardent support for abortion. Abortion is feminism's sacrament as most recently evidenced by Ms.'s latest t-shirt project (scroll down to see photo). Ashley sounds like a young woman who is trying to make sense out of her world. She lived with her mom and her sister and they were poor, very poor. There was no dad. Then, the three of them amassed an amazing amount of riches by working very hard. They have also enjoyed the highest accolades possible in their careers. This summer, Ashley was treated at a facility away from her husband and family for depression. Her sister, Wynonna, is now publicly battling alcoholism. It's obvious that the rags-to-riches success story of the Judds has taken its toll on the mental health of the sisters. Ashley and her t-shirt are being used by the feminists because she's successful. They're just riding her t-shirt tails to attract more women to their failing cause.
Feminism is ugly and the ugliness is more than skin-deep.
