In yesterday's Washington Examiner, Jonah Goldberg made vast, paranoid and rather cuckoo generalizations about feminism. And Broadsheet honestly doesn't have much to add to Amanda at Pandagon's line-by-line smackdown. ("Please, guys. While I know it's funny to jump out of his closet and yell, 'Abortion on demand without apology!' just to see the fearful puddle of piss grow underneath him, well, it's beginning to be a little cruel," she writes.)

But just to give you a taste, here's how Goldberg accuses feminists of narcissism: "Feminists honestly believe they are speaking for all women: I think this way, I am a woman, therefore I must represent all women." Hmm. Kind of like the way Goldberg honestly believes he's speaking about all feminists?
