Michelle Malkin describes left-wing woman-hating as four stages of abuse...
"Say whaaat? Wasn't the Left, in the 1960s and 1970s, the home of true feminuttiness*?" Yes, and based on their reactions to even successful left-wing females like Hillary Rodham Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, that may have been because left-wingers expect women to be nutty. Which could be because authentic socialism-as-substitute-for-religion is so old that the women--or men--who are still spouting it...er um we are talking about people's parents here...don't remember what year it is.
* (tangent alert): Rush Limbaugh is remembered for having coined the term "feminazi," but people tend to forget that he also said that there were fewer than two dozen real feminazis on Earth. Maybe that's because Limbaugh didn't develop this theme with a further investigation of the masses of feminuts and feminitwits.
