“The View” asked Twitter, in ALL CAPS, if people considered themselves “feminists” on this here International Women’s Day. If there’s a Hallmark card for this holiday, I sure as crap didn’t get one. Feels wrong. Anyhoo, the broads got chatty in their semi-circle, discussing the issues of today’s feminism. That’s when Megan McCain dropped some hard truths.
DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A FEMINIST? @MeghanMcCain explains why she wouldn't call herself one: "It feels very exclusive … I want us to celebrate all women … I would also like … conservative women to be included!" pic.twitter.com/kbOuDey7zv

“I don’t’ consider myself a feminist. It’s a difficult, inconvenient place to be as a pro-life, conservative woman. It feels like a very exclusive movement, especially the Women’s March.”
She’s not wrong. Feminism, as it sits today, is only welcoming to the right kind of woman. Specifically, she who likes to suck out babies. She who likes to bash men when not eating them for second breakfast. She who likes to tuck its penis in real tight. But any lady who objects to any of the aforementioned actions is given the hand. Conservative women are frequently shunned by feminist events, like the Women’s March. We’re told we’re “internalized misogynists” or “Meninists” for simply objecting to women getting preferential treatment for being women. When conservative women dare say “Hey, maybe the pay gap is because women sometimes make different life choices,” we’re forced to duck behind piles of pussy hats to avoid the barrage of thrown tampons.
Megan McCain seemed, for some unknowable reason, to cut through to the usually shrill harpies of “The View.” She, like many women who tilt right, would like to have reasonable discussions with other uterus-Americans. Perhaps McCain’s message will break through.
If not, we can always send in Stephanie Crowder.
