Usage notes[edit]

  • See the usage notes about Nazi.
  • Limbaugh defined the term as “a feminist to whom the most important thing in life is ensuring that as many abortions as possible occur”, adding that “[t]here are fewer than twenty-five known Feminazis in the United States”.[3][4] However, in practice he and others use the term in a much wider context.[5]

    When asked in 1995 about the term “feminazi,” he declared: “It’s the way I look at the feminist movement.” Limbaugh referred to the National Center for Women and Policing and the Feminist Majority Foundation as “feminazis.” So it’s not just twenty-five individuals, but every single feminist organization, its leaders, and millions upon millions of Americans with the same views whom Limbaugh compares to Nazis.
