90 years after the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, giving women the vote, Democrats are actively seeking to figuratively repeal the amendment. They are striving for a form of reverse-suffrage, wherein every woman must walk in lockstep with their ideology, or you are not a “real” woman. How dare women step off the gender-baiting, Democrat plantation and vote based on their own beliefs and convictions? They believe women should all think the same way and vote along their ideological agenda, in effect, giving up their vote. They deserve it you see and women are helpless and hapless victims, unable to achieve equality without their nanny state aid – or so they would have women believe, through the lies they have perpetuated for generations.
The lies have been countless, but, thankfully they are now being exposed. The true beliefs of Democrats regarding women are also being exposed, yet they are pitifully and desperately clinging to the false claims of being For The Women. Just yesterday, the DNC sent out an email daring to compare the myth of a wage gap, and other busy work issues that they toss over to women, with the Suffrage Movement. Instead of rejoicing over the fact that in this country men and women are equal, they continue to further myths and propagate lies in an attempt to shroud women in a cloak of victim-hood. They’ve gone so far as to scrub reports from the Labor Department itself that shatter this myth:
CONSAD found that controlling for career interruption and other factors reduced the pay gap from about 20 percent to about 5 percent. Data limitations prevented it from considering many other factors. For example, the data did not permit an examination of total compensation, which would examine health insurance and other benefits, and instead focused solely on wages paid. The data were also limited with respect to work experience, job tenure, and other factors.
The Labor Department’s conclusion was that the gender pay gap was the result of a multitude of factors and that the “raw wage gap should not be used as the basis for [legislative] correction. Indeed, there may be nothing to correct. The differences in raw wages may be almost entirely the result of individual choices being made by both male and female workers.”
Huh. I wonder why they scrubbed it? Doesn’t really fit with the woe-is-us agenda, does it? Even more infuriating to the left than having “inequality” lies uncovered is the fact that some women don’t believe that their liberation is tied to their uterus. Instead, they value what is created in that uterus. They value life itself. Of late, this has sparked a storm of stompy foot temper tantrums from the left, especially the faux-feminists/femisogynists therein who have taken the miracle of life, that only we can create, and have made it expendable. On purpose. As such, articles galore sprung up demanding that pro-life women not be considered feminists – and how dare they even consider themselves as such! A woman who particularly irks them to the point of losing their already slim grasp on sanity is Sarah Palin. She confronts them head on in her latest facebook posting, in honor of the 90th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment. And she reminds them of a little fact that they often overlook – the original feminists were pro-life.
The earliest leaders of the women’s movement, when one was needed, were Pro-Life. Pro-Life is Pro-Woman. Susan B. Anthony was Pro-Life, as was one of the authors of the original Equal Rights Amendment. I’ll refresh the memories of those on the left who seek to marginalize and, for all intents and purposes, disenfranchise women: her name was Alice Paul and she said “Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.” She was, and is, right. Not only have women been exploited and harmed by the diminishing of motherhood and the devaluation of life, but they are also being exploited by those who use abortion as a way to keep women in line. Don’t let those pesky women speak or even think for themselves! Scare them into believing that the only reason they aren’t oppressed chattel is because they can legally kill their unborn children!
Not only have they attempted to teach women to resent their basic anatomy and biology, but they’ve reduced women to wombs only. And if you aren’t focused on keeping that womb “punishment” free, then there is something wrong with you and you must be “checked” before being allowed to vote, as was suggested by Democrat Representative Janis Sontany:
At a Democratic gathering over the weekend, Sontany said of women Republican state lawmakers: “You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote!” State GOP chairman Chris Devaney quickly issued a press release calling her comment “inappropriate and disrespectful” and demanding that various Democrats denounce Sontany.
Funny, but I think that is a good thing. Why would I be able to tell what gender a person is by their vote? Unlike Democrats, I don’t believe that women should vote based on myths, falsities and agendas that actually harm them and their families. I don’t believe women should throw themselves on the pyre of liberal policy, harmful to both themselves and their families, to prove some kind of gender cred. That’s the opposite of equality and it is the antithesis of the Woman’s Suffrage Movement. In fact, it spits in the face of all who fought for, and achieved, equality.
Democrats do not empower women, but rather exploit them.They try to play the victim card incessantly, but , in reality, they are the victimizers. Victimizers who now seek a form of reverse suffrage by either scaring women into voting blindly and in lock-step or by marginalizing women who refuse to do so. Well, guess what?
We ain’t marginalized. And we’ll see you in November.
