Stormy Daniels Is No Feminist Hero

Stormy Daniels — feminist icon? Does that have a nice ring to it? The New York Times seems to think so, but Andrew Klavan had a slightly different take, and he made sure the Times heard him loud and clear on Monday's episode of "The Andrew Klavan Show."

“Miss Filipovic says Stormy Daniels is a feminist hero because she is not ashamed of being a porn star who had an affair with a married man and then blackmailed him and then refused to honor the deal she agreed to when she was paid off because she saw an opportunity to get more money and attention,” Klavan said. “And her lack of shame for doing these things makes her a feminist hero because now feminists can imitate her by doing immoral, degrading, self-destructive and utterly humiliating things without being ashamed. So... yay.”

Video and transcript below:

This weekend, the knuckleheads at Knucklehead Row – which we here at "The Andrew Klavan Show" like to call "The New York Times" – outdid themselves in knuckleheadedness with an op-ed entitled “Stormy Daniels, Feminist Hero.” And yes, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Oh, Klavan, you’re such a funny guy. How I love your hilarious satire. And you’re good looking, too.” But no, so help me, this is a real op-ed by Jill Filipovic.

Miss Filipovic says Stormy Daniels is a feminist hero because she is not ashamed of being a porn star who had an affair with a married man and then blackmailed him and then refused to honor the deal she agreed to when she was paid off because she saw an opportunity to get more money and attention. And her lack of shame for doing these things makes her a feminist hero because now feminists can imitate her by doing immoral, degrading, self-destructive and utterly humiliating things without being ashamed. So... yay.

From now on, all across America, New York Times-reading feminist moms and their absolutely miserable husbands will be teaching their daughters to be more like Stormy, maybe by showing them some of Stormy’s films, like "Dripping Wet Sex 4," "Young and Anal," and of course the unforgettable "Tormented," in which she plays Tormented Woman in Sex Scene #6. And sure, watching movies like that may not turn you into a strong, independent woman, but at least they’ll leave you weeping over the degradation of your gender by Stormy Daniels.

But, you know, there is one way in which Stormy has exhibited feminist independence: She has made her own choices. She chose to sleep with Trump, she chose to commit blackmail, she chose to take hush money, then chose to break her contract and make a spectacle of herself. In fact, everything that’s happened to Stormy is because of something she chose. So why is everyone trying to blame Trump? Hmph. Strange.
