In comments I addressed feminist opposition to Palin:
As to why feminists hate Palin, there's more to it than simply the fact that she opposes many of their policies. Palin defies the Stepford Wife conservative stereotype that the feminists have long preached as gospel. She does far more than desecrate the feminist image of womanhood - by discrediting false prophecies about conservatives she undermines the credibility of the prophets. The false prophets are fighting back.
I should qualify this comment by specifying gender feminism (using Christina Hoff Sommers' term) as the brand of feminism under question.
