Read the Hate Closely, And You’ll See Begrudging Respect for Phyllis Schlafly, Even Among Feminists


The awesome woman who dared to resist feminism back when it was really uncool to do so died Monday.  Predictably, even young leftists who had never heard of Phyllis Schlafly happily joined the chorus in celebrating and mocking her death.  I won’t quote any of those idiots, but Breitbart compiled a good number of Tweets and comments just from the journalistic and professional world if you’d like to see them here.

Hatred is the working medium of feminists of all kinds, and I’ve seen plenty of it while reviewing comments about Schlafly’s death.  There simply are no exceptions.  But if you look closely, in the midst of the ubiquitous hate, occasionally a few of the Third Wave Feministas slip up and take notice that Mrs. Schlafly was no dummy.


Amanda Marcotte, a feminist writer for, is no one you would expect to cast any praise on a conservative woman.  She spends her days writing the most vile hatred of men, in general, and attempting to convince people that Hillary Clinton is a saint whose only crime is having a vagina.  Grudging, offhanded and couched in man-hate as it is, this is as good as the praise gets from Amanda Marcotte.

Well done, Phyllis.  Go rest high on that mountain, and may your favorite candidate (Donald Trump) win easily in November.  Sleep well, witty lady.

    She was an elegant lady. She and her wisdom will be sorely missed by a world sadly in need of elegance and eloquence.

  2. Mrs. Schlafly was exactly the sort of woman that feminists would celebrate if they actually believed the stuff they claim to believe: she was brilliant, ambitious, hard-working, accomplished, independent, and successful. She was a lot like Margaret Thatcher — another very impressive woman who ought to be a feminist role model, if feminists weren’t such a bunch of hypocritical liars.

    • I like the insightful way you put that, Blue. If it were really all about equality, Thatcher (and Schlafly) should be admired AND their political opinions respected, even if those opinions differed from the majority of feminists. But instead, feminists demonstrate every day that they are really just another useful idiot group for Leftists, and no more.
