Feminists have a funny way of supporting women.
- They rage against sexist jokes but stand down when Republican women are mocked.
- They cry “MeToo,” but fall silent when a Democrat is accused of sexual assault.
- They rally behind Hollywood starlets getting equal pay but hid when Gina Carano got unfairly fired from Disney for speaking “her truth.”
Now, that feminist hypocrisy is back following Hamas’ Oct. 7 attacks on Israel which included the torture and rape of many women.
And Mayim Bialik has had enough.
There has been an abhorrent and conspicuous absence of women’s organizations around the world unequivocally condemning the systematic rape and torture of women on October 7 by Hamas.

The veteran TV star (“the Big Bang Theory,” “Blossom”) sent out a blistering message on X about feminists falling silent when it mattered the most.
There has been an abhorrent and conspicuous absence of women’s organizations around the world unequivocally condemning the systematic rape and torture of women on October 7 by Hamas. Brutal gang rapes, sexual torture, and murder of fetuses happened- period. Where are the “BELIEVE THEM” voices? These crimes against women were in many cases documented by the terrorists themselves and broadcast for the world to see.
It’s not a matter of believing one side of the other, which is often the case in sexual assault cases. We have the proof. The ghouls who committed the acts proudly captured it on video.
Those of us who have fought for women’s rights and have sought to shout from the rooftops when women’s bodies are being used in war for the sadistic pleasure of perpetrators are astounded at how the world has been silent surrounding this. The UN (U.N. Women – the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women) took 50 days to express “alarm”… Progressive feminists of the world: where are you?
The National Organization for Women has been as silent as any group.
This reporter read every Tweet from the feminist group since early October (and there were many). Just one touched on the current Middle East crisis.
We are witnessing the tragedies that are occurring in #Israel and #Palestine. Innocent #women and children must be safeguarded. NOW stands with women and children around the globe. They must be protected! pic.twitter.com/h2OqNuusQr— National NOW (@NationalNOW) October 13, 2023
The post in question is generic and brimming with moral relativism. Are Israeli soldiers raping Palestinian women? Who started the current conflict?
Plus, the post came six days after the worst terrorist attack in recent memory. The lack of urgency is profound and telling.
You didn’t mention the use of rape as a weapon. You didn’t condemn Hamas. You are silent a mothers getting their fetus ripped out of their womb, or babies burned alive. You are a disgrace to real feminists, like me who marched in the 1970s.— LD #🟦 (@LDBirdywatcher) November 22, 2023
It’s important to note that NOW’s X account is very active and touches on many different political and cultural issues. Whoever is overseeing the account had to try very, very hard to avoid Hamas’ atrocities. And they did just that.
The group’s blog also neglects to mention the Hamas attacks or how its terrorists singled out and savaged women in the worst ways possible.
The Feminist Majority Foundation’s news page lacks a single story tied to Hamas’ ghastly attacks. The group publishes Ms. Magazine, and its lightly-used X account makes no mention of Oct. 7.
Hollywood feminists have been similarly mute on the subject. Yes, some actresses have stood strong on the issue from the beginning, including Debra Messing, Amy Schumer, Patricia Heaton and Gal Gadot.
What about the actresses who joined the Women’s March every year of President Donald Trump’s presidency?
Bari Weiss noticed, too.
Good question.— Bari Weiss (@bariweiss) November 28, 2023
Is there a single major feminist or women’s rights organization that has unequivocally condemned these horrors? https://t.co/Gt1O3BHvYA
So did Dan Bongino.
Fascinating how little we hear from the #MeToo movement about the sexual torture of women by the Hamas demons. Weird right?— Dan Bongino (@dbongino) November 28, 2023
