    Carla Bruni-Sarkozy swollows her words after a Tweet storm

    'My generation doesn't need feminism'
    Only two days after Carla Bruni-Sarkozy stated that feminism was not needed by her generation, she was pushed into recanting her words in a public storm. Personally, I wish Twitter never existed as I think it does more social harm than good but it's there and the feminists have forced another person to retreat from what they believe in.
    Twitter Campaign Forces Carla Bruni-Sarkozy to Backpedal on Feminism - The Daily Beast
    In comments released to preview that French Vogue interview, Bruni-Sarkozy, 44, declared: “We don’t need to be feminists in my generation. There are pioneers who paved the way. I am not at all a feminist activist.” The remarks sparked a quick storm of invective online.
    On Wednesday and Thursday, nearly 2,000 took to Twitter to use the hashtag, many angrily taking the former first lady to task.

    With "friends" like this...

    This is, though, a good case study in the risks of too enthusiastically presuming on the support for men's issues from female "converts", especially public figures or those who would seek celebrity on the strength of their "coming around".
    The feminist vision for the male future is like a badly-written novel: all narrative and no dialogue.
