And you thought he had problems with French Fries?
Judge Roberts apparently thought it wasn't in this country's best interest for housewives to go back to work or further their education. According to the Washington Post, Judge Roberts had issues with "whether encouraging homemakers to become lawyers contributes to the common good." Granted this was about 20 years ago, but people usually get more conservative as they get older, don't they?
Anne Coulter is not the only conservative woman with problems with Judge Roberts's nomination, now Phylis Schafly was surprised as well. Ms. Schafly called him "smart alecky", she was a little surprised by his ideas as well. You know you are a counterfeminist reactionary when Phyllis Schafly thinks your ideas on a woman's place in the world are extreme. Judge Roberts also had problems understanding why Reagan had a gender gap and why it first appeared in the 1980's. Well gee, women worked so hard to gain rights in the 1960's and 1970's and to have a president who was elected on a platform to roll back those rights and he couldn't understand why Reagan had a gender gap problem? I guess he belonged to the Donald Regan club, where sanctions against South Africa won't work because American women don't want to give up their diamonds.
In other words, conservatives believe women are shallow and incapable of independent thought and having ideas of their of own. Like this troll who left this comment about Hilary Rodham Clinton saying, "I feel sorry that this lady has been used so much as a pawn by her husband to protect him." Wait a minute!! But with Hilary, she is either the pawn or the queen. Well wingnuts, which one is it?
Apparently, Cindy Sheehan is not capable of forming her own opinion because she is being manipulated by the far left and members of her family disagree with her. Excuse me?! Did it ever occur to these idiots that maybe Cindy Sheehan is using them? Have you ever met a family where everyone thought alike? I haven't, and that would be one extremely boring family as well. As far as getting divorced, not many marriages survive the death of a child.
Conservatives don't think women are capable of thinking for themselves. They fear women who can think for themselves. And that is why I will never vote for a Republican, unless the GOP drops its positions on abortiion, birth control and women's rights from its platform.
