 Oh Boy, not this shit again!  Feminists and women in general are
unreasonable, irrational, etc., etc., - that's pretty old! Furthermore,if the
right is winning the culture wars, it's not beccause they employ a discourse
of reasonableness.  Rather they utlize a discourse of populism.  In addition,
the anti-abortion crusaders appeal to emotions and religion Jim, not the
so-called reason you so highly regard.

is similar to the way in which it is invoked by the Right - in both
instances, there are negative connotations attached to "feminism" as if it
were the plague or something.
