As a strong-minded, intelligent, free-spirited – and OK, yes, stubborn – female, I take issue with Democrat’s constant harping about the GOP being the party of misogynists and repressed women.
It’s one of the dumbest stereotypes I’ve ever come across, simply because it isn’t even close to being true. Most of the Republican women I know are extremely strong people. They work hard, they expect respect and they excel in challenging careers.
Go up to New England and you’ll find a brilliant nurse who is putting herself through Yale while working weekends and summers. Her older sister is a doctor in New York City and their younger sister is working on her masters in law. All three are registered Republicans.
Another dear friend (who technically calls herself an independent even though her voting record says otherwise) teaches special education with a will and a way in New Jersey. And still another has her masters in graphic design at the tender age of 23.
Then there’s my mother, who homeschooled her four children grades K-12 while somehow still managing to maintain her sanity. And if you think that staying home with the rugrats somehow makes her a docile and submissive woman, you quite clearly have never met my mama, who is a force to be reckoned with.
Or how about Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman and Anne Coulter? Say what you want to about their politics, but they are anything but repressed.
So where does this notion that Republican women are browbeaten, barefoot and pregnant all the time come from? The question becomes even more laughable considering its source: the Democrat Party…
Take the recent case of MSNBC’s sophomoric Ed Schultz calling conservative radio talk show host Laura Ingraham a slut. Twice. On air. Or the leftist ladies of the View not thinking much of it.
Now consider the case of a womanizing adulteress and possible rapist: Bill Clinton, a Democrat. Likewise, Al Gore was accused last year of sexual assault, and that entirely forgettable comedian called on her black brothers in Harlem to rape Sarah Palin during the 2008 elections. Talk about sexist and racist.
Or how about the big fuss the entire mainstream media made about Sarah Palin’s wardrobe expenses, when they certainly didn’t pick on any of the male candidates for anything so ridiculous.
Also worth mentioning:
- Harry Reid referring to one of his fellow Democrat politicians as “hot” on live TV… Ew!
- Playboy’s list of Conservative women worth a “hate f*ck”
- David Letterman’s comments about Sarah Palin looking like a slutty stewardess
- The Kennedy men. Enough said.
Don’t believe me? Do a Google search on any one of those and you’ll find easy matches. With the piles of incriminating evidence, it’s difficult not to get the impression that liberals would actually much prefer conservative women to go back into the kitchen and bake something.
So Democrats? It’s about time you shut up and started analyzing your own shortcomings in this area instead of nagging us on ours.
How do you like that for repressed?
