For years the Republican Party has lobbied against measures to give women equal pay for the same jobs men do, prevent them from fighting for our country, and even suggest that women have no knowledge about how their bodies really work.
Oh, and if a lot of Repubs had their way, Repub women would be jobless at home darning socks and taking care of the children.
So it baffles me that there are women who support a party which apparently doesn’t feel that they should be regarded with any sort of respect. I might add that it also baffles me that many of the members of the GOP are actually married, but that’s another thing.
I know this doesn’t apply to every single woman who is a Republican – there are those who question the practices of their party. And that’s a very good thing. Questionable practices should always be, um, questioned.
When outspoken supporters of the GOP like Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham continue to side with politicians on issues concerning women, Lord knows I question it.
Women are not “the weaker sex” anymore. They are intelligent, capable members of society and should be given the respect that they deserve. They have proven time and time again that they are equal to any task given.
So I suggest to Republican women who endorse people like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdouck and their ill ilk to ask theirselves – are you really women?
And to the Republican men who feel that women aren’t equal, I would suggest that they go transvaginal ultrasound themselves.
