serial_crusher: sexist or not, it's certainly petty name calling.


True. But being a petty name caller is a far cry from being a misogynist waging a war on women.

busy chillin': the comment section was like Bizzaro Fark.


Yeah, I was about to point out the quality entertainment found in the link's comments. There's a story there also about the former head of the state GOP sending out an email warning of UN vehicles invading New Hampshire. Boffo yuks!

Except when they're Chris Christie.


A woman the size of Chris Christie could never be elected governor.

Reading through the comments I see the fark libs are going with the standard response of, "shes a republican, so it's ok".  Maybe not in those words, but that's the meaning your are trying to convey.

I have no idea what her politics are since not all republicans are alike. Just like not all democrats are alike.  Except fark libs have convinced themselves that the GOP has some kind of clone factory where they produce each and every politician.

However, not matter what her political position is on various issues, I would not vote for her.  Just like I would not vote for any republican or democrat.  I refuse to be part of the problem and always vote third party.

James!: FTFA: For too long women in our society have been judged by their appearance rather than their accomplishments and made subject to the ignorant assaults of men

And then subby called her a "hottie".


There are tons of videos like this one.

While I'm inclined to say that women are more judged based on appearance, it's basically a truth that person is judged by appearance.

Straight up judging people of both sexes on appearance is in common. That's why you can buy a plain, white t-shirt for $120, and be that much awesomer.

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.


She voted against all abortions after the first trimester and against any federal aid to help a poor girl get an abortion. But being compared to another attractive successful woman is a War on Women.

I've told this story before but it seems appropriate.

In fall of 2008 I was in college and taking a scuba diving class as one of my credits (it just happened to fit and hey, scuba). The election was still winding up and I'd already realized my dive instructor and I were on differing sides of the fence. So we're at the Y gearing up and he mentions Sarah Palin. My reaction was "NO. No no no GOD no."

This guy turns to me and says, straight faced, "You should be proud of her." My reaction was to pull my mask down, shove my mouthpiece in and jump into the water, choosing bubbling on the bottom of the deepend over him. To this day I have no idea what the hell he was talking about and I wish I'd asked. I'm not related to Sarah Palin, so why should I be proud of her? Because she and I both possess ovaries?

/I don't get this line of thinking

THESE.

Democrats tend to back down when Republicans cry foul which they do all the freaking time.

Good on this guy for not doing so for once.

Can't take the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen.

Wait, was that sexist?

/No, it wasn't.

Want to see real sexists in action?

How about when Ashley Judd was mulling a run against Mitch McConnell and the RW media picked up a story about a pro coal golf tournament that featured a picture of a topless Judd with the caption...

"Ashley Judd makes a living removing her top, why can't coal miners?"

Rush Limbaugh demanding Fluke post a sex video online?

Todd Akins "legitimate rape" remark?

Santorum calling rape babies "A gift from God" and that women in this situation should "accept what God has given you"?

Foster Friesse (Santorum's Sugar Daddy in the 2012 election) and his "Bayer aspirin between the knees" remark?

That is what sexist remarks look like.

This? Not so much.

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.

Wrong on all three points.

Farklibs aren't using the excuse "she's a Republican, it's ok", they're instead actually reading what was said and, like most sane individuals, realize what was said was not sexist.

So, you're saying that the high-ranking Republican politicians AREN'T clones of one another?  Please, point out some examples on how different they are.

You always vote third party, huh?  Um... hate to tell ya this, but a vast majority of third party nominees are still career politicians and are really no different from Republicans or Democrats.  It's like you just said "I refuse to buy that Cadillac or Chevrolet crap!  GM SUCKS!" and then you go and buy a Buick.

So, let me get this straight.  Attacking a woman candidate = a war on women.

That woman candidate belongs to the GOP, a party that:

Opposes equal pay for women
Opposes reproductive rights, birth control, and a woman's right to choose
Opposes the ACA (which helps women - especially regarding child birth - by increasing the insurance pool and expanding medicaid)
Opposes marriage equality
Opposes a living wage for single working mothers
Opposes food stamps, SNAP, and other programs that help mothers in poverty feed their children
Opposes workers' rights
Consistently sides with big business and wealthy special interests, which are overwhelmingly run by and benefit a small number of wealthy men
Consistently characterizes anti-discrimination laws as vehicles for "frivolous litigation" and as imposing a "huge cost on businesses"


So remember kids, what people say in political campaigns is far more important than their substantive policy positions.

Snapper Carr: [i.imgur.com image 520x324]


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



Agree.  On the other hand, it's completely absurd for the GOP to pretend that it's a party championing and defending womens' issues.  It's even more absurd for the story to be that some politician said something mildly sexist, as opposed to what positions the candidates have taken regarding womens' issues.

This is all just part of the modern GOP's strategy - avoid talking about substantive policy at all costs, in favor of drama and substance free political "controversies"

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.

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.


Would it be sexist to compare a male politician to The Situation? I wouldn't think so, even if the reason involves sex appeal. Just because women are judged more on their appearance doesn't make an equivalent comparison sexist or not.

It honestly doesn't even matter.  Even the relatively moderate Republicans end up doing nothing but enabling their crazy-go-nuts brethren.  You saw that with the government shutdown -- plenty of Republicans grumbled and groused about what their party was doing, but none of them stepped up to put a stop to it.
