Coulter on feminism: ‘All pretty girls are right-wingers’
Conservative columnist and Conservative Political Action Conference fan favorite Ann Coulter took to the stage at CPAC Friday afternoon to offer some comments about her frustrations with President Obama, her support for presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and the general unattractiveness of liberal women.
In response to an audience question regarding how a person could be both a women and a conservative, Coulter explained that is what true women actually are.
“I think all real females are right-wingers,” Coulter said, ” and I can tell you that based on experience — and my bodyguard will back me up on this — all pretty girls are right-wingers.”
The best-selling author added that she can always tell who her female fans are because they are the attractive ones. But unfortunately, she said, it is difficult to discern some men’s ideology because they have a diverse range of looks.
“Some of my male fans have hair to their derriere and tattoos up and down their arms; some of my antagonists seem like perfectly attractive, preppy young men,” she said. “Girls — a pretty girl walking toward your table, you know she is a fan.”
According to Coulter, the feminist movement has set conservative women back.
“I don’t write about feminism. It seems to manifestly obvious it doesn’t need my stunning skills or analysis,” she said sarcastically. “But, I mean, the reason unattractive — I suppose — the reason liberal women are liberal is because they have to date liberal men and as we’ve seen from Bill Clinton and Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Anthony Weiner, we’ve seen how liberal men treat women. I’d be angry too.”
“I’ll take 69 cents on the dollar,” she continued, referring to the disputed wage gap between men and women, “or whatever current feminist myth is about how much we make just to have to never have to pay for dinner. That seems like a fair deal to me.”
Coulter went on to say that the number one goal for feminists is birth control.
“Who does that help? I guess it helps Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner and Dominique Strauss-Kahn,” she said.
“You’re a lot better off being a conservative,” she concluded, explaining that all feminist “myths” have been disproved by Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly.
