The hosts of the web show “PolitiChicks” appeared on Tuesday’s edition of “Fox & Friends” to discuss what they described as the dangers of the modern feminist movement.
“PolitiChicks” Editor-in-Chief Ann-Marie Murrell launched the debate, saying that feminists are actually “sexualists” because feminism “has nothing to do with empowering women anymore. We earned the right to vote. We have equality in the workplace. If we don’t, we can fight that on a one-on-one basis.”
Later in the conversation, PolitiChicks co-host Gina Loudon echoed the view.
“What the feminist movement has successfully done, is really, as Ann-Marie puts it, sexualized women instead of feminizing women,” Loudon said. “So, we are here with a new brand of feminism, saying drop the shackles of the old feminism. It’s time for women who really want to be women, who want to be feminine, who want to be what God designed them to be.”
Murrell defended the view, saying feminists have it all wrong.
“They claim that we put women back into the ’50s where women stayed home and took care of their children and their families,” Murrell said. “I say that what they’re doing, they are like cave women waiting for caveman to bonk them on the head and drag them into the caves by the hair. That’s who they are. They’re the ones putting us back into the stone ages.”
The PolitiChicks message was that they knew what women wanted.
“They want less government in their lives,” PolitiChicks host Morgan Brittany said. “They want to make their own decisions. They want freedom to choose for their children, their families. That’s what women really want. And they also want real men. We love real men.”
Loudon finished the conversation:
“We want no more of this feminists politicizing our bodies, and what happens in our bedrooms,” she said. “That’s all that the feminist movement has successfully done. And we’re here to battle back, and say we know what women really want.”
