Are these women out of their minds? I imagine this is their way of buying inlfuence or access but I hope they get a clue when no access or influence is forthcoming... at least none they will get without completely whoring themselves out. Speaking of which, since they are selling a poster version of this nonsense the whoring may have already started.
Here are some responses found on another web site.
This is what a feminist looks like?? File this one under: Does Feminism Even Need Women?
Apparently NOT...Next issue J-Z on the cove with a free CD of "I got 99 problems but a Bitch Aint One"... I am NOT GOING TO SAY HIT ME! NO NO NO I WON'T!

Barack Obasm a feminist? When pig lipstick flies. I don't think Barack even likes women, at least it doesn't seem that he does when he allows his hired help to behave like a bunch of disrespectful sexist swine. Not to mention his inability or unwillingness to chastise any of the people who woman bashed in his support. He's the same thing to women he is to the LGBT community, all talk no-show!

Feminists always tell their wives to say "Her first job is as a mother!"
Feminists always party to misogynistic rap songs, especially "I Got 99 Problems and a Bitch Ain't One."
Feminists always look the other way while their male staff members simulate sexual assault.
Feminists always say abortion is "between a woman and her pastor."
Feminists always make sure to appoint no more than a few token women to important jobs.
Feminists always make sure male staffers make more than female staffers.
Looks like we have gone Through the Looking Glass.

I didn't know that Michelle Obama had rejected the word "feminist." After all that complaining about Barack and his male privilege issues, too...oh, well, it does explain how she could be a member of that church.
So if she was upset when he let male privilege almost destroy her marriage, now will she be upset to learn he is a "feminist"? These people make my brain hurt.

And better yet, he ran on the strongest platform for women’s rights of any major party in American history.
Was that the"99 problems but a b*tch ain't one" or the "We won't overturn Roe v. Wade like that stupid c*nt Caribou Barbie will" platform?

My own reaction was one of betrayal. The kind of betrayal that happens when a mother meets a shiny new boyfriend, and turns a blind eye to what he is doing with her daughters while she is away.
Ms. Mag was a mother to me in the 80's. Boy, has she ever come a long way, baby! Now she wants me to believe that I, as her daughter, need a Superman to save me? And that I should "just keep quiet honey" about what he did to all my sisters during the campaign season.
I'm sure, for many women, this is deja vu.
Obama supporters believe in sexism an misogyny, but only in theory.
They can see racism in the words "fairy tale" but no sexism in "Lipstick on a pig."

That is simply a gross over-generalization that is beneath you. It is simply not true, especially when you look at the millions of women who supported Obama over Hillary in the primaries.
And you have to understand, to millions of women in the US watching Hillary lose the primaries and be treated in such a misogynistic way by Obama and his people was repulsive. To watch the dream of a female president delayed yet again for someone so unqualified provokes tears of sadness and rage. His inauguration will be a tragedy for this country to many of us.
He says he is a feminist but ACTS like a misogynist--actions speak louder than words?!

Obama won by appealing to the worst misogynistic impulses of this country. I am horrified to learn how deep these impulses continue to run in the US. Obama is a reminder of that fact--that it was worse here than I thought for women. He embodies the dissolution of hope. He continues to disgrace the office of President.
Oh, but wait, having some women give some prayers at some time during the week of his inaguration---wow! Such important tasks! Power to the women!
