Why Do Feminists Keep Defending Violence Against Women?

They oppose legislation that would ban coerced abortions and protect women's choice to keep their babies. When they need it, they may defend back-alley abortions or they can even go as far as defending... rape.
We’ve seen this woman-on-woman cannibalism before. Wolf and other feminists took the 1990s off when Bill Clinton was in the White House. Despite a parade of victims from Paula Jones to Monica Lewinsky, America’s feminists decided they’d forgive a sexual predator as president if he was a Democrat — the same way they did for Teddy Kennedy ever since Chappaquiddick.

And then there’s Roman Polanski, the Hollywood filmmaker. Polanski drugged and repeatedly raped a 13-year-old girl at Jack Nicholson’s house in the 1970s. The girl testified that she repeatedly begged Polanski to stop, and was afraid of him, but that he forced himself on her. As he raped her again and again, she continued to say “no,” but he didn’t give a damn.

But Polanski makes movies, and he’s an impeccable liberal. So feminists rush to his rescue, too. Whoopi Goldberg told America “it wasn’t ‘rape-rape’. It was something else.” Got it? A 13-year-old girl who is drugged and repeatedly raped isn’t really raped if it’s a great artist doing the raping.

A philandering president who preys on secretaries and interns isn’t a bully or a sexual harasser, if he’s a liberal...
In other words - it's more about ideology than about women's rights and equality. If Ezra Levant's article still doesn't make it clear - check out this video at Real Clear Politics (h/t Sacramouche,) which makes it clear what feminism is all about.

Well said.

Feminism as a whole is not about women. It is simply an extension of cultural Marxism. Every major feminist cause is about increasing government powers and dragging down religion and the institution of the family.
