Elle’s Sady Doyle Smears Female Critics of Feminism as 'Handmaid'-ish, Oppressive Woman-Haters

Written by  Clay Waters

An Elle magazine story by Sady Doyle about an emerging character on the already-infamous Hulu show, “Has 'The Handmaid's Tale' Given Us the Scariest Anti-Feminist Villain Yet?”, smeared notable women like Christina Hoff Sommers, Camille Paglia, and Kellyanne Conway who fail to adhere to the left-wing brand of feminism, as self-hating women and oppressive Handmaid villains in disguise:

Serena Joy is one of the great anti-feminist villains. Even for Margaret Atwood, an author who's been known to expound at length on her love of wicked female characters -- "women," as she says, "have more to them than virtue" -- the chief female antagonist of The Handmaid's Tale is singularly disturbing. She's an enemy, not of any particular woman, but of women as a whole....

Doyle describes how the character of Serena Joy differs between Atwood’s 1985 novel and the Hulu series, then leaps into the Trump Era, where any female who dares question the feminist religion is on the side of the brutal sexist “Commanders” of the Tale.

....Where Serena Joy used to be a blunt, sobering portrait of religious zealotry, she's now symbolizes an even greater threat -- that our oppressors have gotten smart enough to sell us poison in an on-trend, very blonde package.
