Celebrity Feminist: Jennifer Aniston

*You can click on the image to zoom in since the text is too small.

Jennifer Aniston the great feminist who rubs shoulders with feminist Gloria Steinem (who had cosmetic surgery…..) thinks it’s wrong that the media and the public puts so much emphasis on women having children or getting married.

You know what? Jennifer Aniston is right! Getting married or whether you want kids or not is nobody’s business since it is a personal matter.

However, as a celebrity who sells her personal life in interviews with magazines and late night talk show hosts, Jennifer Aniston has willingly given up on some of her privacy.

ie: I consider asking her if she’s had an abortion, how often she’s having sex, if she has any health problems, etc. to be uncalled for

I do consider comments like “Do you want kids” or “Are you dating Mr. Celebrity A” to be fair questions since she’s already sold that stuff when promoting her movies.

Also, considering Jennifer Aniston has forcefully said many times over how much she wants children, it’s completely fair play to ask her about it and also ask why she hasn’t had children yet at age 45, when it’s getting a lot harder to have kids.

For Rachel Green to suddenly turn around and claim it’s sexist of the media to ask her that question is astounding hypocrisy.

For people who read her 2005 Vanity Fair Interview (their highest selling issue of all time) titled “The Unsinkable Jennifer Aniston“, Jennifer skillfully manipulated public opinion of her divorce from Brad Pitt as well as lied throughout and painted a nasty picture of untruths.

As you see in the image, Brad Pitt was the one who had wanted kids but somehow in her 2005 Vanity Fair interview, suddenly it was poor Jennifer who wanted kids and Brad was the one preventing her from becoming a mother?

Brad Pitt acquired 6 kids inĀ 3 years (between 2005 and 2008) whereas Jennifer Aniston, despite being the one to pressure Brad Pitt about children, has 0 kids from 2000 (when she married Brad Pitt) to 2014.

She had 14 years to have kids, something pretty easy to do when you’re a multi-millionaire and even easier when you were married for 5 years. Of course, this is assuming she was truthful.

Bad statistics and feminism anyone?

Do we expect feminists to be truthful, ever?

Feminist Shanley Kane too stupid to take her own advice.

So basically the strong, independent woman that is Shanley Kane, who writes about how she is oppressed by the patriarchy and misogynistic men, decided to take to task the egalitarian feminist Christina Hoff Sommers.

Shanley’s problem with Christina is that Christina recognizes the hypocrisy, misandry, and stupidity of modern day feminism. Apparently if you rightfully criticize your own movement, in an effort to improve it, that’s seen as hating on women.

Shanley wanted to graciously educate the ignorant Christina Hoff Sommers and teach her that there’s nothing wrong with feminism and Christina needs to look at the horrible patriarchy that is enslaving them all.

Once Christina points out that Shanley’s own attitude seems to be the problem, instead of responding like a professional, mature, adult, Shanley becomes a raging, angry, violent feminist and starts swearing and verbally abusing and harassing Christina.

Christina stays calm and mentions Shanley just proved her point and like the petulant elementary school kid she is, Shanley makes an ad hominem personal attack on Christina’s appearance.

Isn’t feminism about raising women up and not attacking them, much less on their personal appearance?

Oh yeah, here Shanley and her friends mention how you shouldn’t get into arguments on twitter.

Hypocrisy again?

Or just a strong, smart, independent, beautiful feminist?
