Cosmopolitan Magazine, recently in the news again for being dropped from checkout stands by Walmart, helped to push the sexual revolution of the 1960s. It did so by creating a “persona” of the perfect woman it labeled the “Cosmo Girl.” In her book, “Subverted: How I helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement,” author Sue Ellen Browder claims that the Cosmo Girl was a “mask the single girl, lonely and alone in the world, could put on to turn herself into the object of a man’s sexual fantasies.” Browder knows this well; she worked for Cosmopolitan Magazine under the direction of its editor, Helen Gurley Brown.

The Cosmo Girl was “an illusion”

Helen Gurley Brown took over Cosmopolitan Magazine in 1965, when the magazine’s circulation was falling. A report by the New York Times detailed the transition:

A secretary-turned-advertising-copywriter, Mrs. Brown first told a sexually somnolent America that single women had lives filled with work, play, and love in her 1962 best-selling book, ”Sex and the Single Girl.” She and her husband, David Brown, the film producer, then parlayed the book into a magazine proposal, which they took to Hearst Magazines. The publishing company gave her Cosmopolitan, a fading 79-year-old publication that had once carried stories by the likes of W. Somerset Maugham.

According to Browder, Brown’s philosophy was, “hard work and sex without the kids will set you free.”

“If you entrusted yourself to Helen’s lifestyle teachings (as many young women did and still do), you’d soon come to believe the way for a smart woman to be free and to succeed in her career and her life was to (1) work hard; (2) take the Pill or use some other contraceptive; (3) if the contraceptive failed, get an abortion,” Browder explains in “Subverted.”

According to Browder, there was no real Cosmo Girl. “She was mostly a product of Helen’s clever imagination, a marketing fairytale,” Browder writes.

“It was all an illusion,” Browder told Live Action president Lila Rose.

Browder called the Cosmo girl “a marketer’s and CEO’s dream come true.”

“She worked hard, bought lavishly from the pharmaceutical, medical, beauty, fashion, and travel industries, and to top it off, she did not push for all those pricey, bothersome extras like family tax breaks, maternity leave, shorter work weeks, and more flexible work arrangements,” said Browder.

Feminism or fantasy?

Though Helen Gurley Brown labeled herself a “devout feminist,” other feminists of her day strongly disputed this. Brown wanted to work for Playboy founder, Hugh Hefner, and once suggested that women should try to please men: “If you want a man in your life you have to be nice to them….”

In an interview after Brown’s death in 2012, Hefner told the Hollywood Reporter that Brown had approached him for a job before joining Cosmo. “She wanted to do a female version of Playboy,” Hefner stated. “In the early days, they even had a little symbol like our bunny, a pussycat that appeared at the end of every article. In a parody tribute to Playboy, she even did a nude [April 1972] centerfold with Burt Reynolds.”

“When she founded Cosmo, her views on sexuality and the sexual behavior of unmarried women were radical and the same as mine. In terms of male and female relationships, our philosophy was very similar,” Hefner added. But not all feminists agreed with Brown’s version of women.

In fact, feminist Betty Friedan, who authored “The Feminine Mystique” and went on to help found the National Organization for Women (NOW) as well as NARAL, called Cosmopolitan in 1967, “quite obscene and horrible” and “an immature teen-age-level sexual fantasy.”

Betty Friedan opposed Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown

“As the mother of the women’s movement, Betty [Friedan] hoped to broaden and deepen women’s lives,” Browder writes in “Subverted.” And she agreed with Friedan’s assessment of Cosmopolitan. “We created this fantasy world, the Cosmo Girl, at least in the beginning, before a lot of women began to buy into it; the Cosmo Girl was just a sexual fantasy…. “You never saw a mother in the magazine, you never saw a child in the magazine,” Browder pointed out.

Friedan once said, “Women are the people who give birth to children, and that is a necessary value in society…. You want a feminism that includes women who have children and want children because that’s the majority of women.”

Tragically, Friedan, under the influence of pro-abortion writer Larry Lader, would eventually embrace abortion as part of her women’s movement only to return to her original focus later in life — that the family was important.

In promoting her book, “Second Stage,” Friedan called for her movement to “stop overemphasizing abortion rights and reaffirm the importance of family.” But the damage was done.

Helen Gurley Brown’s vision inside her sexual revolution was much different. In describing the “Cosmo Girl,” the NYT revealedthat Brown concentrated on her looks, not on her activities or aspirations. ”She has always been sexy, slender and bosomy,” Brown allegedly said.

”Bosom fashions are something you don’t have to change,” said Cosmopolitan editor Brown. ”A beautiful bosom is a beautiful bosom. If you don’t have one, you look on with awe and envy; if you do, you wonder, ‘Are mine as good as hers?”’

Abortion united two polar opposites

Despite the internal conflict, once abortion was adopted by Friedan, the two movements essentially merged. In fact, the Cosmopolitan editor joined with Friedan’s NARAL to push abortion politically. In 1974, Brown signed a NARAL-initiated telegram sent to Democrat Senator Birch Bayh, the Chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Constitutional Amendments, which was considering legislation to overturn the recent Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion.

The telegram mouthed the same lies that Bernard Nathanson, a founder of NARAL, helped to create by claiming that reversing Roe would cause many women and especially poor women to “suffer at the hands of back alley abortionists.” Live Action News previously documented how NARAL’s claim that hundreds of thousands of women died from illegal abortion was fabricated.

Although NARAL and Brown were objecting to the fact that those testifying before the committee were all men, one of the men who testified, Dr. John D. Biggers of Harvard University Medical School in Boston, sided with NARAL by claiming that legally protecting unborn babies (something that was in effect just a year earlier) could have profound implications on the behavior of sexually active women: “If such legislation is written, every woman who is sexually active will have to assume she is pregnant and modify her behavior in a suitable way.”

That statement alone revealed why Friedan’s women’s movement and Helen Gurley Brown’s sexual revolution movement had to join under the umbrella of abortion to survive.

In 2006, Betty Friedan died at the age of 85. Helen Gurley Brown died six years later at the age of 90.

Cosmo’s objectification of women and friendship with the abortion industry

After Brown’s death in 2012, writer Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett chastised Cosmo Girl as “a brief hiccup in what has otherwise been a longstanding agenda of sexual objectification.” She then called the modern Cosmopolitan Magazine “hopelessly outdated.” Victoria Hearst, the granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, claims that Brown turned “a family magazine into a sex rag.”

In 2015, according to WorldNet Daily, Hearst “launched a campaign against Cosmopolitan magazine which she describes as pornographic. Working with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, Hearst announced the CosmoHarmsMinors.com website to provide information about the magazine.” She stated that the magazine had declined to become a mere “‘how-to’ sex guide, glamorizing… public or violent sex acts in nearly all their issues,” which would be “deemed pornographic” according to “most states’ material harmful to minors laws.”

An interview with Hearst after the release can be viewed here.

Alveda King spoke out against Cosmopolitan

Pro-life spokesperson Dr. Alveda King, niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., endorsed Hearst’s effort, claiming, according to Breitbart, that Cosmopolitan’s content helps “line the pockets of the abortion industry” and that “Planned Parenthood is joining with Cosmo” to “lead that girl into an abortion.”

“[W]hen a young girl reads Cosmo and sees all this supercharged sexuality, buys into the sexual liberty of the day, and involves herself in those types of activities,” she continued, “then the next natural force – or unnatural, depending on how you look at it – would be, ‘Well, I’m pregnant now. I just wanted to have fun; I didn’t want to have a baby.’”

“And then Planned Parenthood is joining Cosmo right there to lead that girl into an abortion,” King added.

Cosmo continues to promote abortion and supports Planned Parenthood, known for covering up child sexual abuse. Today, according to the Media Research Center, Cosmopolitan, which describes itself as a “bible for fun, fearless females,” influencing more than 18 million readers a month, offers plenty to criticize. Newsbusters’ Katie Yoder discussed a Dec. 8, 2014 piece by Jill Filipovic, Cosmopolitan’s senior political writer at that time. Her piece featured Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards on “where the pro-choice movement is headed next year.” Yoder also noted that “abortion-giant Planned Parenthood bestowed the ‘Excellence in Media Award‘ to the magazine” that same year.

In response, Filipovic tweeted how proud she was to receive the “Maggie Award.”

Planned Parenthood’s top award is named after its founder, Margaret Sanger, known for her advocacy for the eugenics movement. Sanger also admitted meeting with the Ku Klux Klan, but that doesn’t seem to bother the abortion corporation or so-called media outlets, like Cosmo, which praise both Sanger and Planned Parenthood.

Cosmo’s newest Editor in Chief, Michele Promaulayko, was announced in 2016. From 2000 to 2008, Promaulayko had previously served as executive editor of Cosmopolitan. She was also the former editor in chief of  Yahoo Health and Women’s Health. Despite Margaret Sanger’s racist history, Promaulayko currently boasts on her LinkedIn page that “in 2013 Women’s Health won the prestigious Maggie Award from Planned Parenthood.”

Clearly, Cosmopolitan magazine’s sexual revolution and promotion of abortion continues to this day.

Feminist icon: The way we sold abortion to public caused ‘lack of reverence for life’

Feminist icon Betty Friedan, a founding leader of the National Organization for Women (NOW), which bills itself as the first national organization to endorse the legalization of abortion, admitted that it was pro-abortion men who drove the push to legalize abortion. Friedan, who falsely claimed she “started the Woman’s Movement,” was once granted the “Humanist of the Year” award. She authored the book, “The Feminine Mystique,” which didn’t even mention abortion in its first publication. Friedan has been quoted as saying, “Ideologically, I was never for abortion. Motherhood is a value to me, and even today abortion is not.”

But the NOW founder was eventually convinced — by these patriarchal men — to push abortion as part of NOW’s official platform.

Friedan’s admission to NARAL supporters was captured in CSPAN’s 1989 video, “Who Decides? Political Action for Pro-Choice.” She referred to the 1960s pro-choice push as the “second American evolution of women.”

“First of all, the word ‘abortion’ was almost never heard in the early 60s. It was never used in the newspapers,” Friedan told the group. “There were many founders of NOW… and they persuaded me this was too controversial to take on, it might split the burgeoning women’s movement,” Friedan stated.

And, in fact, it did.

She added that at the time, the issue was too controversial even for Planned Parenthood.

Labeling her fight the “NAACP for Women,” Friedan confessed that it was men who convinced her to use NOW to promote abortion. “I remember that there were some men — doctors, lawyers — that had been trying to reform these criminal abortion laws. And they got a sense somehow that the women’s movement might make everything different,” she said. “They had gotten nowhere but they had a sense. So, they kept nagging at me, to NOW, to try and do something….”

“When it was clear that NOW wasn’t going to [promote it] in those first years,” Friedan says the men came to her pleading for help. These men were Lawrence Lader and Dr. Bernard Nathanson (a founder of NARAL who later became pro-life). Because of her book, Friedan had “a little bit of fame,” and “these guys, they loved me, because I was helping to give them some visibility.”

Friedan helped establish NARAL, (known then as the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws) at the First National Conference on Abortion Laws held in Chicago in 1969. She admitted that at NARAL’s founding, few women attended: “I have to tell you. It wasn’t very large and my hunch is that women were not the majority of people even at it.”

In fact, according to Harvard University Library, two of NARAL’s three member pre-formation planning committee were men: Garrett Hardin and Lawrence Lader. (Lader met Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in 1953, and in 1955, he published a biography on her, later co-authoring another account of Sanger.)

Abortionist and NARAL founder Bernard Nathanson also played a role in convincing Friedan to push abortion.

In her book, “Subverted,” author Sue Ellen Browder described Lader as being adamant that the women’s movement was key to decriminalizing abortion. “We’ve got to keep the women out front… and some Blacks,” she quotes Lader as telling Nathanson at a NARAL strategy meeting. On a 1967 trip the men took together, Lader said, “If we’re going to move abortion out of the books and into the streets, we’re going to have to recruit the feminists…. Friedan has got to put her troops into this thing – while she still has control of them.”

Browder says Nathanson originally objected to the idea of using feminists to further their movement but later proclaimed, “I was dead wrong.”

In his book, “Abortion II,” Lader recounted his interaction with Friedan: “We had known each other for years, and while she was writing Mystique, I occasionally suggested that all feminist demands hinged on contraception and abortion and a woman’s control over her own body and procreation.” He also wrote that Friedan was hesitant, fearing it would “split[] off Catholics and conservative professionals.”

Lader eventually convinced Friedan to market abortion as a way women could “control their bodies,” crediting Margaret Sanger, who said, “No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body.”

Over time, Friedan saw problems with her male-created feminism, and noted that her movement’s failure “was our blind spot about the family.” In promoting her book, “Second Stage,” Friedan called for her movement to “stop overemphasizing abortion rights and reaffirm the importance of family.” But the damage was done.

In 1981, Friedan decried the “lack of reverence for life and the mysteries of conception and birth” in pro-choice feminism:

Maybe there was something slightly off in the way we handled abortion. Such slogans as ”free abortion on demand” had connotations of sexual permissiveness, affronting not only the moral values of conservatives but implying a certain lack of reverence for life and the mysteries of conception and birth.

After all, why do feminists seem to be fighting ”for abortion” against women who say they are fighting for ”the right to life”? How can we fight the real battle in such terms? Who is really for abortion? That is like being for mastectomy…

In contrast to NOW, early feminist leaders like Susan B. Anthony referred to abortion as “child murder” and viewed it as a means of exploiting both women and children. They, unlike Friedan, demonstrated that true feminism was pro-motherhood, pro-woman, and pro-child.

Although there are many, one of the pro-choice mantras for abortion supporters which you commonly hear is something like “keep your laws out of my vagina.”

Like some we saw in Texas during the debate on HB2, where abortion advocates even used children to support killing children.

Dumbest CafePress abortion merchandise ever!

So, I stumbled onto the Shop CafePress website, where, according to the site, “the world turns for unique products that express what people love most.”

What do people love most?

I guess abortion, because the site has an entire line of T-Shirts, novelties, and apparel that say, “Abortion Sends Babies To God Faster.”

There is even a Teddy bear:

And, hey you can even dress your beloved pet in one:

Now, I do not know about you, but the statement that, “Abortion Sends Babies To God Faster,” is just in poor taste at best.

Yes, when you slaughter a baby in the womb, they will get to God faster but, come on, who would design and entire brand around such a slogan?

But, that’s not the best one- how about a “Proud Parent of an Aborted Fetus” bumper sticker- huh? Any takers?

Proud Parent Aborted Fetus

Or “Ask me about my abortion” T-shirt.

Come on, ask me – you know you want to!

Okay, I’ll bite, “Say….you look like someone I know- did I ever meet you at Planned Parenthood?

And, here’s one about Pro-choice Chicks!

Did I fail to mention that ^ is a magnet?

Not to be out done by the “Hatched by Choice” mug!

This one is called Pro-choice Infant Creeper– you decide!

And, if you’re into the whole racist eugenics Margaret Sanger/ Planned Parenthood theme how about this doozy:

Abortion: Because some people just shouldn’t breed magnet- stick that on your frig why don’t ya?

Kind of ironic that the above “breed” magnet sits right next to this one: Abortion is Black Genocide!

But- hey, it’s made in the USA!

WHOA – I gotta ask, Who would put this on their baby?

old_school_abortion_infant_creeper

Well….there are several pages of abortion products on the CafePress website.

So, if you are into shopping for Abortion merchandise go and visit CafePress and although many of the products are ridiculous, some actually have good pro-life messages, although, you’ll have to look through some really dumb pro-choice ones to find them.

National Organization for Women Criticized for Silence on Rape and Murder of Iraq Women

Mahoney outside NOW Iraq Christian womenA Christian Pastor and his wife are challenging the National Organization for Women to join their efforts in condemning the violence against women and children in Iraq.

Rev. Pat Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition and his wife Katie Mahoney have announced that they will be organizing in front of the headquarters for the National Organization for Women (NOW) in New York, Friday August 15th.

DC 80926868_7769170300804787222_n

Pat Mahoney explains, “It is very troubling that the National Organization for Women, and other American feminist groups, have not passionately spoken out against the brutality against the women of Iraq. Quite frankly, this is an outrage.”

WaronWomen Now

The couple state in their event post, “in Iraq, we are seeing an unprecedented attack on women. The terror group, ISIS, is kidnapping women. Raping them. Beating them. Mutilating them. Forcing them into human slavery and sex trafficking.

The modern world has rarely seen such barbaric and violent attacks against the dignity of women.

The actions of ISIS, represent a picture of “The Real War on Women.”

Now Where Are You 835409_3195142650283900529_o

Tragically, when women around the around need to stand up and boldly condemn such barbarism and violence against their sisters, the voice of American feminism has been virtually silent. Groups like the National Organization for Women, have been AWOL in this global struggle for women’s rights.

To make matters worse, they have demeaned and cheapened the plight of the women of Iraq by using the term “War on Women,” to describe companies not providing abortion-inducing drugs and contraceptives in health coverage, rather than the violence being committed by ISIS.

In response to this outrage, women leaders are gathering outside of the New York City Headquarters of the National Organization for Women challenging them to be a loud passionate voice for the women of Iraq and asking, “Where have they been?” and “Why they haven’t gotten involved.”

We invite all women of good will who are committed to human rights and ending violence against women to join us on Friday, August 15, at 12:00 P.M.in front of the headquarters of the National Organization for Women in New York City.

“Violence against women is an appalling human rights violation. But it is not inevitable. We can put a stop to this”.- Nicole Kidman.”

Katie _1343238167640069732_oKatie Mahoney, another organizer of the event made this point on the hypocrisy of NOW, “Perhaps if ISIS had just denied Iraqi women contraceptives or abortion inducing drugs instead of raping and brutalizing them, the National Organization for Women might be more inclined to speak out and become engaged.”

Mary Elizabeth Williams keep your Morality to yourself !

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2014 by saynsumthn

MEWilliams_Bio-75x75 Writing for Salon Magazine – Mary Elizabeth Williams gives a very stern warning to pro-choicers who assault and steal from “anti-abortion protesters.”

Lets tell the back story.

On March 4, 2014 two young pro-life women with the group Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust led a pro-life outreach at UC Santa Barbara.

milleryoungDuring the event pro-lifers say that pro-choice Mireille Miller-Young, a UC Santa Barbara professor of Feminist Studies whose areas of study include Pornography; Sex Work; and Feminist & Queer Theory stole the pro-life sign from a young pro-life activist who was trained by Survivors. Miller then took the sign into an elevator, where she repeatedly pushed, and even pulled the victim, who was attempting to hold the elevator doors open until police arrived, according to members of Survivors.

Miller Young

A video of the incident was posted online and soon the media was a buzz with the pro-choice intolerance:

Back to Mary Elizabeth Williams – she writes, “Ignoring the trolls – it’s not just good advice online. It’s indispensable in real life too. You see, this should have been a slam dunk. Instead, we have a tale in which radical anti-choice protesters wind up being depicted in the media as good guys.”

According to Mary Elizabeth Williams, “Accounts vary as to what exactly happened when the Christian group descended on UCSB earlier this month, but according to 21-year-old Joan Short, she and her 16-year-old sister Thrin were displaying three large signs and handing out literature when Dr. Mireille Miller-Young approached them, and a heated exchange ensued. Miller-Young allegedly then led a group of students in a chant of “Tear down the sign! Tear down the sign!” before taking one of the banners away from the girls and walking away. What follows in the video the “Survivors” group has released shows the professor and two other females walking into a building with a very large sign that appears to depict a bloody fetus. When the girls call her a thief, she yells back, “I may be a thief but you’re a terrorist.”

Now – this is the same Mary Elizabeth Williams who once wrote an article for Salon entitled “So What If Abortion Ends A Life“. Quoting the article and Ms. Williams, “I know that throughout my own pregnancies, I never wavered for a moment in the belief that I was carrying a human life inside of me. I believe that’s what a fetus is: a human life. And that doesn’t make me one iota less solidly pro-choice…Here’s the complicated reality in which we live: All life is not equal. That’s a difficult thing for liberals like me to talk about, lest we wind up looking like death-panel-loving, kill-your-grandma-and-your-precious-baby storm troopers. Yet a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides. She’s the boss. Her life and what is right for her circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the non-autonomous entity inside of her. Always. When we on the pro-choice side get cagey around the life question, it makes us illogically contradictory.”

Moving back to the violent professor Mary Elizabeth Wiliams with no concept of morality appears to get some morality when she writes:

“These antiabortion groups are sneaky and disruptive and they fully count on provoking an emotional response and playing victim when they get one. When it happens, they have a field day. So here’s a reminder: don’t do it. Don’t take their stuff. It’s called stealing, and you’re going to have a hard time convincing anybody otherwise. Don’t push them. Don’t touch them at all. If they’re trespassing, have them removed. If they’re creating a disturbance, call a cop. But don’t give them ammunition.”

Mary Elizabeth Williams ends her tirade with this sentence, “This week, Michigan’s “rape insurance” law has gone into effect. Clinics are closing. New laws are trying to impose longer waiting times for women before letting them obtain abortions. Our reproductive rights are being chipped away in this country. We are in a full-blown crisis. And the last thing on earth we need right now is to look like we’re the out of control ones here.”

So there you have it people. Rather than declare the right to protest, free speech, the excitement that young women would be counter-cultural and stand up to the establishment Professor seeking to censor them, the “Right to choose” to speak your own mind without Government or shall we say School interference, feminist Mary Elizabeth Williams appears angry – almost embarrassed that her side- the intolerant “pro-choice” side was exposed on national media for the hypocrites and violent people they really are.

Mary Elizabeth Williams has taken it upon herself to scold the pro-choice left in this country and to define what is and is NOT acceptable behavior – something they seem to loathe when the pro-life right does it.

Let’s recap: pushing your morality on others by by telling or in this case showing people who choose to slaughter innocent babies in the womb they are wrong is totally unacceptable. However, you ARE allowed to lecture your fellow pro-choicers about how to behave around pro-lifers so as to not “look like we’re the out of control ones here.”

Get it – or just confused?
