Yesterday, Phyllis Schlafly traveled to South Carolina to speak to at The Citadel, which now offers a course entitled the "Conservative Intellectual Tradition in America."
Speaking to an all-male audience, Schlafly assured them that women don't care about the issue of contraception and warned them not to date feminists:
The recent political flap about contraception being an important issue for women is completely contrived by Democrats and the media to divert attention from abortion and other important issues, said conservative political activist Phyllis Schlafly.
Contraception is not controversial, she said. The issue is not access. Its whos going to pay for it.
Most women are concerned about issues such as jobs and religious liberty, Schlafly said, not issues being drummed up by feminists to foster support for President Barack Obama.
And feminists are working through the media and other channels because the American public no longer seems to strongly support their agenda, Schlafly said. Feminists are having a hard time being elected because they essentially are unlikable, she said.
Schlafly talked to a group of Citadel students about the culture of conservatism and the history of the religious right. She told the all-male group that feminist is a bad word and everything they stand for is bad.
And she warned them about having personal relationships with feminists. Find out if your girlfriend is a feminist before you get too far into it, she said. Some of them are pretty. They dont all look like Bella Abzug.
However, for a junior officer to be married to a feminist is most definitely NOT a career-enhancing move..
Good advice....most feminists don’t like boys anyway.
I made the lucky mistake of marrying a woman with no political views.
Any thread about the Citadel is worthy of a reminder about yet another lefty hero who dropped the ball squarely on her foot.
Shannon Faulkner whined, moaned and agitated about wanting to enter the Citadel. In those mostly pre-Internet days, outlets like the reliably touchy feely USA Today championed her cause.
Faulkner, of course, washed out after ONE WEEK despite being treated like a Queen thanks to the media scrutiny. Naturally, she was quick to condemn that at which she had failed miserably.
Have there been qualified, successful female Citadel cadets and graduates since? Yes of course. But as usual the PC Parade backed a loser and were nowhere to be found when Faulkner moped home.
” Find out if your girlfriend is a feminist before you get too far into it, she said. Some of them are pretty. They dont all look like Bella Abzug.”
Or Helen Thomas : )
Phyllis is a card, but she speaks from wisdom, not emotion.
Don’t date and marry a bride-zilla either.
I know that show is staged and is produced to shock viewers, but I also know that there are actually women in real life who live like a bride-zilla.
Why any man would be stupid enough to marry such a thing is beyond me.
Good. Feminists are despicable people and no good will come of it.
Does a “one night stand” constitute a “date”?
whatever do you talk about? i could never be seriously involved with someone who didn’t share my political philosophy, but i certainly would have very little in common with someone who did not have any political philsophy.
As gentlemen do not date dogs, neither do they date FemiNazis.
Schlafly is merely stating the obvious.
Date them for about an hour and if dinner is part of the evening, split the bill.
There is little more repugnant and shameful than a military officer who has prostituted their intellect and principles in support of a liberal spouse.
The Proverbs 31 woman is “accomplished” and ambitious and hard working without being like a modern “feminist”...
“Now that the Citadel is co-ed how can women be excluded from a presentation?”
The answer is no. My daughter is a junior this year. No parts of the campus (other than the obvious) are denied to any female cadets. That includes all academia.
Don’t kid yourself about “qualified and successful”. The Citadel modified standards so the relatively less qualified girls could succeed, just like the military academies and the military generally.
Fire departments and police departments have been corrupted and made less effective the same way.
Well, remember this is as reported by rightwingwatch; they have a habit of playing loose with the facts. The place is still 90% male, the audience for almost any presentation is going to be mostly male as well.
I suspected it but didn’t want to post conjecture.
Phyllis Schafly makes sense...again
Sad part is that many so-called “conservatives” want nothing to do with her today
Newsflash: many men (not all) don’t care what a woman thinks or preferably doesn’t think about anything. To many men, the idea of having interests in common with a spouse has never occurred to them. They lead separate lives, him in guy world and her with the ladies. And bless them all if they are happy that way, knowing each other over dinner and in bed.
Schafly has accomplished more than all of the feminist activists combined. And she did it, long before feminists started burning their bras.
that concept is so foreign to me i can’t even conceive of it. guess i lead a sheltered life ; )
Let’s be honest here. What college age male gives a flying —— about what a 90 year old women says about dating? If we’re trying to perpetuate the stereotype that conservatives are old and out of touch, this is exactly how to do it.
She’s only 88 years old.
