I accidentally stumbled across the Joy Behar show, “Say Anything” last night- and like many a train wreck, couldn’t take my eyes off the carnage. I’ve never seen such a panel of whining, barking, griping self proclaimed “feminists” in my life. I’m so alienated from every thing spewing from their mouths that I’m certain there must be a 3rd gender out there for women like these because I’m too ashamed to have them share mine.
Conservative women around the country have always and WILL always be demonized by liberals– men and women alike. Conservative women in politics have never felt the need to burn their bras, have full blown mustaches, abort their children, flaunt hairy armpits and makeup-free faces to feel that they can be on equal footing with men- and for this they are hated.
There is nothing worse to a liberal, most especially a liberal woman, than a beautiful, strong AND conservative woman speaking out loudly and boldly about the issues… and doing it with their good-looking husbands by their sides, not as their constant whipping post but as their partners and helpmates. Conservative women do not feel the need to tear down and crucify the men in their lives in order to feel like they have an equal voice.
It’s this commentary that reminds me of at least one woman on woman smear that happened not that long ago is just a perfect example of how threatened liberals are by conservative women.
NASHVILLE – State Republican Chairman Chris Devaney today denounced as “petty and insulting” a Democratic legislator’s statement about her Republican women colleagues.
“You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote,” said Rep. Janis Baird Sontany, D-Nashville.
The remark at a Saturday Democratic breakfast was initially reported by blogger Dru Smith Fuller. Sontany acknowledged the statement when asked and described it as “a glib, off-the-cuff remark” that “was inappropriate on my part.”
What a classy chic.
It’s apparent that liberals feel that every woman in elected office should feel the same way, think the same way and vote the same way. And if you don’t, be ready to defend your reproductive system.
Sontany does bring up the unfortunate but true fact that there are literal instances where “lifting the skirts” to determine gender is necessary… take for example, Barney Frank, Helen Thomas and Elena Kagan.
But, to compare femininity with the way a woman votes is ludicrous and ignorant. Women who declare themselves feminists and warriors for equality have in essence become women’s worst enemy. These Feminazis turn and eat their own for thinking independently and outside of their drawn boundaries. They have become obnoxious know-it-alls who snarl and foam at the mouth at any woman who dares to protect the right to life, urge women to take responsibility for their actions, who believe that motherhood is a gift and that their children are precious, and that the government shouldn’t replace the role of a father.
These liberal women say they extol strong and empowered women but as soon as one dares to defy the victim mentality that feminists hug around their shoulders like a shroud, they turn on them in an instant. This can be seen as perfect examples in point with women like Sarah Palin, Nikki Haley, Michelle Bachman, Michelle Malkin, Dana Loesch and others with even watered-down and lukewarm conservative principles like Elisabeth Hasselbeck- whether you agree with every one of their policies or not. These conservative women have climbed to the tops of their careers in very, very difficult male-dominated fields. And these women won, not because of their gender, but because of their efforts and feminists hate that.
As one blogger, Cassy Fiano of Smoking Hot Commentary said:
“The thought of women caring about things like less gun control, a stronger military, closing the border, fiscal responsibility, and smaller government sends them into a self-righteous rage. And so, they’ll engage in… misogyny! They’ll demean conservative women, insult them, refuse to defend them when they’re attacked, smeared, and sexualized, and sometimes even take part in the abuse.”
Yet, Conservative women identify with most women in this country and that is why they are adored by so many. They are role models that exemplify you can be a real woman, with a real uterus, lipstick, highlights and a bra that doesn’t sag around your stomach and still be brilliant. You don’t have to sacrifice family and femininity to be among the top leaders in your fields and you can do it with heels!
Ladies, I’ve heard it said before and it’s worth repeating… “Tread softly but carry a big lipstick!”
