timujin: Saying that she's of the same ilk as another politician, but that the difference is that she wears heels, is not misogynistic.  Calling her a mental lightweight or comparing her unfavorably to someone like Kim Kardashian is also not misogynistic.  Words have meanings, learn to use them.


to insinuate that a woman's career accomplishments are due in large part to her appearance - Nope, not sexist at all.
Matter of fact, I plan on using this one tomorrow at the office, followed by a pat on the rear and the ol "Sugartits" - in a non-misogynistic way, of course...

Krymson Tyde: Democrats should hold themselves to a higher standard rather than behaving like republicans.


I haven't seen any photoshops of her barefoot and pregnant standing a in kitchen yet. THAT would be Republican-like. And a Democratic politician would have to forward that from their governmental email to really seal it.

technicolor-misfit: While I agree his comments were somewhat sexist, I also think that if femininity is off the table as a target, then masculinity should be as well... Women should stop trading on "old boys clubs" type remarks or playing on some idea that men are inherently clueless and self-serving and that being a woman brings you some greater capacity for empathy, understanding, and concern.

Either being a woman is an issue or it's not. You don't get to have it both ways.

It's like the stiletto heels remark. Does she wear stiletto heels? If so, then STFU. You don't get to try to trade on your looks and sexuality and then cry foul if you're called out on it.

"Pretty boy" politicians like John Edwards and Scott Brown take shiat for their looks. It's not sexist that glamour girl female politicians face the same. It's sexist if women are treated like fragile little porcelain dolls who can't handle "the game" the way men can and expect to get to play from the "ladies' tee."

What if you said that a particular candidate should be in the kitchen instead of in the white house or some such?  I mean, you could technically say that of either a man or a woman, so if you happened to say it about a woman it wouldn't be sexist, right?

/ sexist or not, it's certainly petty name calling.  Unless Kardashian has entered politics herself, I don't see why comparing a politician to her is relevant.


Do you really feel that comparing her to Kim Kardashian is not something one would normally say of a man?  Because I remember, back in '08, fairly frequent comparisons between Paris Hilton and a young lady named Barack Obama.

/however, I won't disagree that it is rather petty

I like how the insult is to whom she is compared, but the drooling derpers latched on to the "stiletto heels" part.

It's mildly sexist. The guy should apologize. It's possible to avoid gender stereotypes while attacking her on issues.

Isn't she running as a hottie?  Isn't she posing seductively for her campaign shots?  Isn't she professionally made-up and hairdressed?  Isn't she cashing in on her sex appeal?

/yes x4

I welcome the new addition to the national dialogue. I can't wait to watch the fun as the Republicans roll out the latest hot female capital-C Conservative with great fanfare and ado, and then slowly realize their error as she turns out to contain as much derp as all the male candidates they passed up in the quest to appear somehow friendly toward women. Since "female", "hot", and "buys all of our bullshiat" are generally the only qualifiers, we get to share in their process of discovery.

Watching Republicans try to get the cat back in the bag is what makes tracking political news worthwhile. The question is, who will play her in the movie afterward?

This is the last time a politician did not use professional hair and makeup for a photoshoot or television appearance.

A young attractive woman is running for Congress. Let's focus on her bad ideas, not her nice ass.

Mentioning she's the same as another politician with the exception of being a woman doesn't seem very sexist. Sounds pretty much like "she has no new ideas, so she's trying to distract you with meaningless differences."

Never mind that protestants like her had been trying to outlaw and prevent Catholics from celebrating Christmas up until the mid 1800s.  Now that they've given up on stopping it, all of a sudden it belongs to them and they get to dictate it's "true meaning".  They sure are sticklers for how to properly observe the pagan winter solstice.

UPDATE: Facing heavy criticism, Sullivan refused to walk back his remarks about Garcia, even issuing a mock apology to Kim Kardashian "for comparing her to a right-wing extremist like Marilinda Garcia."

Like a farking boss. There's much win in this Sullivan guy.

Stupid Lib.  Any insult made by a Liberal toward a Conservative woman is full-on misogyny, just as any insult made by a Liberal toward a Black Conservative is vile racism.  (Note that this does not work the other way; a Conservative calling Nancy Pelosi a cast-iron biatch on wheels is merely disagreement with democrat party policy.)
 
2013-11-26 06:39:09 PM  
Just remember she's a harpist, not a harpie.  While she may be a lightweight, not a sexist term, considering that Congress isn't exactly a font of deep thinking intellectuals, that should not disqualify her.

Car_Ramrod: The mistake conservatives and libertarians keep making is that we try to be polite to the criminals and crazies of the left, hoping that they will grow up. They never do, and they assume our courtesy is just weakness. We think we can negotiate compromise with evil, but aside from the moral failure of that approach, the liberals never accept comprise - they just keep demanding more (the John McCain fallacy).

We don't want to become as dishonest and criminal as they are, but that means that we damn well have to learn to be just as tough, or more so.


9/10.  Not even sure what the missing 1 is -- was tempted to give 10/10 -- but there's something lacking that I just can't put my finger on.
 
2013-11-26 06:39:41 PM  
So, who is this Peter Sullivan that he has come to represent all Democrats. I guess it is kind of sexist to bring up her choice of footwear. In political terms, it seems to be sort of mild sexism, but I do think it's fair to call it sexist. I just don't understand why this man is somehow the face of Democrats. Is he some rising star on the national front? He also appears to be plural - the article referred to "Dems" but only quoted this one man.

You are not seriously suggesting that men are judged on their appearance to anywhere near the degree that women are, are you?  Because that would be like comparing one derpy statement by a democrat to the mountains of derpitude that comes out of the mouths of republicans,

Men face other pressures in society, but being judged on their appearance is not one of them.

/ sexist or not, it's certainly petty name calling.  Unless Kardashian has entered politics herself, I don't see why comparing a politician to her is relevant.

It would make sense if he was implying that this person is not a capable politician (that she has as much business being in politics as Kardashian does)...  But then he reverses himself by saying that she's exactly like another GOP politician "in heels".  So, is she a capable politician or isn't she?  Taken together, both statements are sexist.  The third statement (apologizing to Kardashian) is amusing, but fails to explain away the sexism.

In order to hold the other party accountable for a flaw, you have to hold yourself to much, much higher standards.  This guy deserves the criticism and other Democrats shouldn't be defending him.


It was sexist and the guy sounds like a douche. I'm the libbiest lib ever but trust me, democrats can be sexist pieces of shiat just as much as republicans.

The "lightweight" comment wasn't, unless I'm missing something.

I have a feeling it isn't, but if this was trolling, it's very good. 10/10

If it isn't, how do you not know that "old boys' club" is used to describe an environment hostile to women? The term describes an environment of sexism. And you think the term means sexist language is on the board?

Not even touching the rest. I have a cold and I'm going to go back to pretending it's trolling. Because then I'm impressed.

You do realize that New Hampshire has 400 state representatives, one per 3,300 residents, and are paid $100/year. The job attracts a lot of nuts, you can generally find one with an objectionable opinion on any topic, and being outlandish is about the only way to become noticed.

Mikey1969: Sullivan compared the three-term State Representative, who holds a Master's degree from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, to reality television celebrity Kim Kardashian.

Um, that's not "sexist".

He went on to refer to her as "[Republican State Rep.] Al Baldasarro [sic] in stiletto heels" ...

Meh, that really isn't, either.

...and "a lightweight."

Yeh, ALSO "not sexist". Farking morons. Learn what the word means before you try and lob it back. Oh, and also quote more than a SINGLE Democrat if you're going to label the attack as being made by "Democrats".


Yeaaah...it's not  polite, but it's not a comment on her gender other than saying 'she's exactly the same as X but a girl'. Sure, I'm not a fan of rudeness, but it's not actually sexist except to radfem lunatics.

And now back to your regularly scheduled Hillary Clinton pantsuit joke.
 
2013-11-26 07:45:08 PM  
It's a "stereotype" that women wear heels?  I thought the issue people have with "stereotypes" is that puts labels on folks -- like Mexicans are lazy (and they _aren't_) or that Asians are studious (I guess? that's insulting?).  The point is that unless this woman DOESN'T wear stiletto heels, it's not exactly "inappropriate".  Lots and lots and lots of projection here.

Well, as long as you are going to throw nonsense like that out there, let me show you what real sexist quote looks like. Here's what one from the comments section of American Thinker (ironically this and many similar sexist and racist comments were in an article about selling conservatism to minorities):

"I would like to add that I have found a lot of women, especially white women, who just don't want to make a decision and are AFRAID to come out against liberalism. Being women who sincerely want to do what is right by children and the poor their heart just won't let them speak out against the talk of liberalism. I firmly believe that women in general don't understand economics or history to a degree that tells them they must stand up against tyranny. There is an old adage that the courts award custody to women because they can care more deeply. Well, that can work against common sense as well. "  --  http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/11/m-selling_conservatism_to_mino r ities.html

serial_crusher: I do have to say, she apparently called the GOP "the party of old, white men", and propped up her femininity as a selling point.  It might be fair to say she opened the flood gates.


Good point. In criminal proceedings, character attacks can't be made till the defendant "opens the door" and introduces character as an issue. If she was the one who said first "Hey, look at me! I'm not an old fat white man! I'm a hot young Hispanic woman!" then the gloves are off as far as that goes.

I'm kinda failing to see the sexism here.

As someone above mentioned, it's petty name calling and the libby-mclibbersons shouldn't resort to that (no politician should, for that matter). But how is it sexist? The closest one of those comments could come to sexist is the one with heels, and that's only because it mentioned stiletto heels, which have been used mostly in a sexual fashion, in my opinion.

It doesn't change the fact that the Dem. is a dipshiat who needs to shut up, though.
