Democratic women have lost their ever-loving minds. For all their hootin’and hollerin’ about fundamental women’s rights, feminism (or what they think is feminism) and all the other knee-jerk niceties leftists are required to support, Democratic women have made a habit of embracing exactly what they purportedly loathe – a misogynistic patriarchal structure.
In Texas, well meaning pro-aborts (masquerading as advocates of women’s freedoms, except the women who’ve yet to be born), caused a disgustingly embarrassing ruckus at the state House. With their jars of human waste and used feminine products, pro-aborts protested a bill that would ban abortions after five months and bring Texas abortion clinics up to code with the rest of the world. Beyond their intellectual inconsistency in the rights debate is a disturbing notion: men can knock up a chick and be completely absolved of any responsibility that comes with pending fatherhood. Why? Because, “my body, my choice!!” In their ideal, twisted scenario, men are encouraged to treat these sexually liberated women as sexual objects and face no consequence, responsibility or obligation beyond gettin’ busy. And this is considered progress or excuse me, “sexual health.”
The mind reels.
Enter the aptly named Anthony Weiner, Carlos Danger or whatever he’s calling himself these days. Weiner has a sordid history of preying on young women. Were he not a smart, young, likable Democratic politician with great fundraising abilities, he would be colloquial known as a “sexual predator.” I sincerely hope Weiner seeks and receives the psychological and emotional help he needs, but that’s beside the point.
“Public service has nothing to do with bedroom service. 98.4367% of men cheat. I do know a few good men who don’t. Leave Weiner alone,” Tamara Holder tweeted. Bogus statistic aside, why should anyone ignore the actions of a sexual predator, particularly one currently seeking the mayorship of the largest city in the United States? And the young women he sought out? What about them?
See also Ted Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, Bob Filner, Elliot Spitzer, John Edwards and Al Gore. Their legacies, at least in the minds of the collective left, do not include their abhorrent treatment of women. No, no, Democratic women wouldn’t dare criticize the way these power-drunk politicians treated their wives, mistresses, ladies of the evening, et al. At least not publicly.
We can’t have this conversation without the greatest misogynist of them all — Slick Willy. When the Paula Jones’ came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and even rape, the establishment media types (liberals, of course), loyal to the Clintons skewered Clinton’s victims. Where were the Democratic women? Where were those fine purveyors of social justice when the abusers weren’t politically expedient foes? Silent.
Yes, this is one example of countless that illustrates rampant leftist hypocrisy, rhetoric inconsistent with actions yada, yada, yada, but this issue is particularly troubling. As long as Democratic women insist on embracing misogynistic treatment from their male counterparts, they’ll continue to be objectified and treated like garbage in the war on women they propagate. Worse, it institutionalizes this type of behavior.
Societal ills are effectively eradicated only when they’ve been made unacceptable. Actions being an indicator, prominent Democratic women choose tacit compliance when facing misogyny. Lest there be more Paula Jones’ or Sydney Leathers‘, it’s time Democratic women stepped up their game and for once, put their money where their mouths are, or uterus’, or ovaries or whatever.
