Sally Field shows dark side of feminism

71-year-old actress Sally Field has been outspoken in her opposition to President Trump.

She also has been outspoken about MeToo.

But she killed her credibility by backing Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump the C-word.



Time-Warner apparently agrees as it aired the scripted monolog, which was taped before broadcast.

Corporate virtue signalling, right?

You are what you broadcast.

Field defended Meryl Streep who apparently knew about Harvey Weinstein's casting couch but never called him out.

"We as women CANNOT allow women to take the blame for the misdeeds of these repugnant men. There were whole systems in place to keep Meryl and others from ever knowing about HW. That was his way of operating. To claim otherwise is ignorant and counter productive," she tweeted on December 20.

And now she has called Ivanka Trump the C-word, tweeting, "I like Samantha Bee a lot, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a c***. C**** are powerful, beautiful, nurturing and honest."

Field's reaction shows the misogyny behind feminism. Feminists hate women. The movement is built on turning women into men; feminists want to erase motherhood through abortion on demand at any point in the pregnancy.

She is a cultural icon, of course, which shows how diseased our culture is.

  1. This story is as old as time itself. Think of yourself as an old hoplite, forced to abandon your farm because the policy of your government has led to war with Sparta. Your whole family is dying of a plague no one understands, and the guy that did it is living with a haetera, an unmarried woman, who isn't confined to her home.

    I wonder what these guys would have been saying if they had been able to post anonymously or under a pseudonym on the internet.

  2. This is good. The person in question advised his fellow citizens to use their superior naval power to recover their war losses by conquering and exploiting uninvolved weaker people far away. He was a liberal icon of sorts: rob and then make a slave someone who can't resist the Force of government to labor paying your bills.
    Fields worked in an industry where only a tiny handful of very talented but distorted human beings, almost all men, had the magical power to ferry her from a dreary life of lower class anonymity and endless penury to one of vast riches and adulation. The price they sometimes demanded was sexual submission. She and her fellow barge riders never questioned the price then, they just wanted to get on the boat which they knew was very small,always packed, and rarely left port. Now embarrassed and guilty, and hoping to elevate themselves because success for them has been made to imply a lack of artistic talent other than sexual, they insult a woman who used her own gifts in a very difficult field of endeavor to help herself without submission to anyone and give eager support to a would be female ruler who shared their humiliation but whose only talent is grand larceny. How rich is this.

    1. Yep. They are users on a grand scale. Reminds me of the pirate that Alexander's men had captured who when questioned by Alexander said that he was doing the same thing Alexander was, only on a smaller scale. And Alexander let him go.

    2. Nonsense, Sally Fields has never at any time in her life been attractive enough to sleep her way into a part, unless maybe it involved BDSM and nobody else would do it. I wouldn't say whether she has talent enough to belong on her own merits, as I've never watched anything she's done that I can remember.

    3. She's pleasant enough and has shown some versatility over the years in both dramatic and comic roles. You never forget that you're looking at Sally Field, though.

    4. Sally Field is too damn thin to have an opinion.

      Get back to me after six months of three-squares, Sal.

  5. Safe guess: If "Sister Bertille" had used the c-word in front of Reverend Mother Placido, she'd have been banished to the convent chapel and required to recite "Hail Marys" and "Our Fathers" until she collapsed from exhaustion.

    1. Fun fact: the actress who played Mother Placido is still alive. She's 93 years old.

      The number of American women taking their final vows has declined by 97% since 1962. The idea of a demographically healthy convent is very retro. The Convent San Tanco would now be a nursing home if it hadn't been sold off to a condo developer.

  7. So women have NO responsibility for Harvey Weinstein? Does that mean he came to their homes and molested them? I'm pretty sure that in at least some if not most of the cases the women had quid pro quo in mind. Since when did women become so holy?

    1. A few were abused and he should go to prison for that.
      But most was transactional sex. Really. I am told reading for a role at a producer's house is an accepted practice.

  10. Sorry, Don, but Bee's attempt to Palinize Ivanka Trump (and Fields' support of her) shows the dark side of Liberalism. Liberals hate Conservatives, they really do. What was once civil disagreement has become embittered intolerance and hate.

    2. Civil disagreement??? We did that once. Happened after the People elected a conservative republican President. Turned out it was embittered intolerance and hate.
      The whole thing has not changed in the last 158 years. Sure, we've rewritten History, made it out to be a question of state's rights all the while knowing the only right they cared about was slavery, and the only state they wanted to have any rights were their own.
      The Civil War, in truth, was a war of liberal democrats vs conservative republicans and moderates.

  11. Field's an entertainer. She's not particularly educated and there isn't much indication that she's got more than middling intelligence. (She's exceptionally articulate, something Thomas Sowell notes is commonly confused with intelligence.

    Nothing wrong with that, but when she opens her mouth, she's going to sound like a person of mediocre intellect recycling what the going line is in her social circle. And one might wager there's no one she trusts or can be embarrassed in front of who has some critical engagement to which she feels she has to pay attention.

    I'm not seeing how she's a feminist icon. "Gidget Lawrence", "Sister Bertrille", and "Nora Walker" aren't feminist characters.


    Her plastic surgeon is a good deal more deft that was Joan Rivers'. Joan Rivers was frequently outre, but never fatuous.
