I'm not sure if feminazi actually qualifies as a rude word. I feel it is because it's usually used in a derogatory fashion.
Anyway, I'm hoping one of you can shed some light on the origin of this term. So far all I've been able to find is a lot of sites that say it is a combination of feminism and Nazi (kind of obvious) and two sources that attribute it to Rush Limbaugh.
Thanks much Smile

I'm pretty sure Rush Limbaugh was the origin of it. I've always heard it attributed to him.

Yep, Rush is your man, if I may use the term so loosely. I heard the old blowhard use "feminazi" the one time I tuned in to hear what he was all about. Good golly, THERE's a whole education in rudeness!
