|Ann Coulter: "I'm A Feminist American"||| Print ||
Appearing on the Danish TV talk show Blül Stih this weekend, conservative pundit Ann Coulter shocked the show's hosts by announcing, "I'm a feminist American." Coulter, better known stateside for making such provocative statements as "All the pretty girls are Conservatives" and "I think Civil Rights are for blacks, not feminists," explained that a recent trip to Afghanistan led to her change of heart. "Seeing the way women in other parts of the world are treated really gave me pause. It made me go back and read some books I'd previously disregarded—the Second Sex, the Feminist Mystique--and suddenly it all clicked. I had, as Oprah would say, my a-ha moment." Not quite sure how to respond, the surprised hosts sat in stunned silence for a few moments. "Look, we all make mistakes," Coulter said. "I'm sorry that I spoke out the way I did. I realize it may have really hurt people. But I've changed, and I now consider myself to be a pro-woman, pro-choice progressive."
