  •  Look at EMILY's List's.... (5+ / 0-)

    Clearly defined mission and goals! They've always said they support pro-choice Democratic women.

    What's sexist is maligning them for doing what all other specific interest groups do. Are HRC, AFL-CIO, LCV, CBC, and other interest groups wrong for prioritizing their specific issues and goals above all others? That may be up for debate, but what they do is really no different from what EMILY's List does.

    •  HRC (0+ / 0-)

      To take them as an example, they've been slammed up and down here and elsewhere in the left-wing cybersphere for supporting Republicans who are theoretically in favor of gay rights but don't really do much to help the struggle. Whenever activists do things in conflict with left-wingers, and even with what we perceive as the best interests of the people they claim to represent (as HRC sometimes does), they can and should be slammed for it.
