The Republican party has repeatedly proposed bills that directly harm all women and continuously spout harmful misogynist rhetoric designed to promote rape culture & disrespect towards women. They blame women for the collapse of the family unit in American because of women being able to divorce, take birth control, and support themselves financially. Because before women were entitled to these things men were beating their wives & children, cheating on their wives and having kids out of wedlock with other women, & controlling every aspect of their wife/daughters lives due to financial control. Now they are upset because women don't have to sit around and look foolish as their husbands cheat, lie, & all around act like selfish pricks. But GOP men want the world to go back to the old way because they miss having all the power. That is why they continuously spew out the rhetoric that family planning, welfare, abortion, birth control, etc are the reasons for why the family unit is failing in America. Couldn't have been the men who impregnate women and then run across state lines? Or the men who work under the counter for cash so they can claim unemployment & skip out on child support? The hypocrisy goes on and on and ultimately they have put women in a lose-lose scenario where either choice they make is made out to be wrong by their logic. If they become pregnant after mutually consented sexual intercourse and they choose to keep the fetus then they are disparaged as a "gold digger, keep a n***** baby, trap queen" and if they decide to terminate the fetus then they are "murderers, going to Hell, amoral". Either way the man involved is excused from all fault even though he gladly participated in the sexual behavior. If that woman uses birth control then GOP sees her as bad as someone who has an abortion which is ridiculous because she is preventing abortions but again the hypocrisy continues. Ultimately this is because in the GOP dream world women would no longer work, no longer have sex outside of marriage, have no opinions, and stay home cook clean and have babies. I for one, will not live in that world and will leave the United States before that ever becomes reality again.
It is unfathomable how we are still debating this. What happened to personal liberties. Men are not even held accountable. I have never heard of a man facing any real punishment for shucking his responsibility for his kids. It is solely the womens burden to bear. If government is going to sentence women 18 years of child rearing maybe men should be sentenced to some time as well in jail for abandonment. Maybe women need to black panther it and march against the gop toting the guns they love so much.
If it is not obvious as heck they believe women to be at their feet and at their disposal....I don't know that there is any logic or reason that can penetrate the ignorance. They live and breathe by this belief: "[Women are} A lesser cut of meat." Insane and Moronic.
Their very actions prove they hate women. If they didn't hate women why haven't they introduced even ONE law that penalizes men for impregnating women. They blame women 100%. They close clinics that help poor women and can't even be bothered to pretend to care enough to offer an alternative solution. They vote against laws that ensure equal pay for equal work. Since they have not suggested one law that would have a positive impact on women.
I believe that the GOP is primarily a white, Christian man's party used to instill old ideas in a modern society with an ever changing system of thought. We don't need an archaic way of thinking, we need to advance how we view others and not hold others back. Women are equals.
By failing to get a woman's input on the issue of birth control, the GOP has shown that it does not value women as equals in society. If woman are not viewed as equals, they must then be viewed as inferior in the eyes of the GOP. Stances of superiority and inferiority are only possible when one group hates or looks down on the other.
The GOP clearly does not respect women or view them as valuable members of society. By refusing to accept a woman's point of view on the issue of abortion and birth control and insinuating that all women are sluts and sex fiends that need to be controlled through oppressive measures, the GOP is perpetuating misogynistic stereotypes.
I wonder if any of you were ever taught this or have just forgotten. The Grand ol' Party was the first to support the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote. If they hate women then why would they give them the right to change the status quo?
I don't think any political entity in the United States "hates" women. Conservative ideas produced by the GOP may not reflect the entertainment and materialistic lifestyles spewed out by the liberals and the far left media, this doesn't mean they hate women. Abortion is not supported because its a thoughtless execution of human fetus's, regardless of if you find it "life" or not. Birth control is looked down upon because it opens the door even wider for pre-marital relationships and sex. Regardless of if you are pro or con on either of those topics its completely absurd to state that the GOP hate women because they don't toss away their convictions for votes when it comes election time.
The GOP doesn't hate women, they just don't have a very progressive outlook on what a modern woman's life looks like. The GOP seems very old fashioned in their ideas of gender and gender roles. I think a little sensitivity training is all that is needed. There are a lot of GOP women after all!
