Republican party on wrong side of history over female equality (barf alert)
UK Guardian ^ | September 22, 2012 | Nancy L Cohen

Posted on 09/22/2012 8:04:34 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

What is the matter with Republicans? With foot-in-mouth disease reaching epidemic levels, it's time to say it: the GOP has a woman problem. It goes much deeper than partisan differences over birth control coverage and abortion. These off-the-cuff comments about selfless spouses and virtuous virgins reveal that too many Republicans do not believe that women are equal to men.

Another sexist living in a bubble. Republicans are against domestic violence, Dems oppose domestic violence against women. See the difference, Nancy? And it was Edwards, Kennedy(s) and Clinton who used and humiliated women for their own pleasures. And Nancy, it wasn't Conservatives who called Palin the B-word and C-word, it was your side. And what about the Dems male problem? Real men, not pansies which someone like Nancy would prefer her men.

Women are NOT equal to men, never have been, never will be. They are DIFFERENT. Actually, I think they are better..

Perhaps Ms. Cohen would like a cigar you know where? Or perhaps she'd like to kiss Mr. Happy?

Actually, the author, of course, is an idiot.

Anyone with the mind of a secure ninth grader, by whom I’m surrounded on a daily basis, can tell her (she wouldn’t listen)history is going to come down so hard on abortion (AND birth control) it’ll put people like her onto the pile of the shamed.

As a friend said to me recently, if you polled Dem women to name their two favorite former U.S. Presidents from 1960 through 2008, JFK and Clinton would likely finish 1-2 in some order. JFK and Clinton probably used women more to their advantages and as their playthings more so than the other ex-Presidents combined.

Sounds a bit Orwellian - womn are supposed to be more equal than men and the right to extinguish life rests in their sense of convenience...

That is because Dem women like to be used as sex objects, IMO.

They would most likely line up to be used by Clinton even now.

Actually, it’s the whining, clinging-vine, insecure single women who have the problem. It’s doubtful they will ever be married (few men are that desperate to have a live-in boss with a chip on her shoulder), so they vote Democrat to substitute for a husband. They are actually gullible enough to believe that politicians will keep their campaign promises to take care of their every need.

Unfortunately, when they get old, the government will be surviving on a shoestring, if that, all its promises broken. No one will come visit them in their government warehouse for the useless elderly, except for the Democrat minders who will “help” them fill out their absentee ballots at election time. What a pitiful future awaits.

The thread directly before this one, “Linda McMahon in Connecticut: She’s Baaaaaack!” kind of makes mincemeat out of Ms. Cohen’s argument, poorly written and researched that it is.

Baby killing and irresponsible behavior is how liberals define “female equality”.

They think more of their vagina than anything else including family...They probably have a poster of it hanging in the foyer!

“The GOP has a woman problem.” “War on women”

Miz Cohen, I would suggest that you direct your anger to the group that is conducting a real war on women — ISLAM!! Female mutilation, child rape, beatings, “honor” killings, and nary a peep from the RAT-feminazis!!!

Their thinking is very skewed. History eill show them as totally insane. Pharmaceuticals will be part of the blame; post abortion trauma and well, other things.

Young people , who are encouraged to think, that is, are seeing this already, while they are scrambling to get jaobs, scholarships, and trying to have fun.

They enjoy the differences between boys and girls, natural law, and all.

By the way, they see JFK as sleazy and Clinton intolerable to look at.

Liberated Wymen are like democrats - they both claim to be motivated by a desire for universal
fairness and equality but what they really want is the power to dictate terms to everyone else.

“the government will be surviving on a shoestring, if that, all its promises broken. No one will come visit them in their government warehouse for the useless elderly. . .”

And not if they’d raised their kids in loveless day care for selfish reasons (allowing for those who had to - kids know).

It goes without say that many liberal women are self-centered. My guess is this author has never thanked a male vet for his service, especially WW2 vets, or held a sign to assist men in need. The primary purpose of someone with her instinct is to divide not unite. And if she is so gung-ho on women in combat, why not criticize the fact that 18-year old males in the U.S. have to register for the draft to get financial aid to college but women are exempt from this.

I believe that it was republicans in the state of Wyoming who gave women the right to vote in the state long before women were granted any of those rights across the U.S.

Considering Democrats support Islamic Terrorism and Islamic Hatred (misogynist towards women) and are the party that supports the culture of rap/hip hop (very derogatory towards women)...kinda hypocritical for Dems to say GOP has a women problem

The GOP has “Backbone Problems” (not being conservative enough), but not “women problems”

Good point.

But of course, they do not want to be distracted by facts that belie their leftist mantra.

"liberal women"

Most liberal women are either blissfully ignorant by choice about how they got where they are or just plain hate their own country. The sixties feminists, who were almost all exceptionally anti-male, lived in a country that made all the female successes possible because it was a free-market, capitalist country that allowed for the progress of women. The radical feminists and many of their cohorts in the media thought it was only because of all the ruckus they made in the sixties that American women had any rights.

The truth is the course of American history paved the way for their success. They're like my three sisters, two of whom are worth a million or more, who are all arch-liberals and who have absolutely no concept or understanding of how they managed to get wealthy. I've questioned them about why they think they're succeeded after we all started out poor, lower middle class. They have no idea. They think the only reason they were successful is because a bunch of skanky, sixties radicals made it possible for them. They're completely oblivious to the fact that only in free-market, capitalist countries like the U.S. were such things possible.
