A few days ago, I wrote about being mortified --- once again, embarrassed to be female --- at the sight of two hysterical women cornering Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator. He stood there cowed, stricken like a child whose puppy had just been stomped on, as they cried and shouted nonsense like (I’m paraphrasing), “If Kavanaugh is confirmed, it means victims of sexual abuse are not being heard!!”
See, RIGHT THERE, that is an example of the kind of cracked “female logic” that smart women for generations have tried to rise above. I’m (barely) old enough to remember that women of my grandmother’s generation were thought of as fragile, emotional, irrational, and likely in need of medication (“mother’s little helper”) just to get through the day. There’s an old song I've never liked, called “Roses and Lollipops,” about how men should treat their wives, with lines like “One day she’ll smile, next day she’ll cry...minute to minute, you’ll never know why”...and “Fourteen or forty, they’re kids in their hearts.” It was meant in a loving way, I know, but even as a little girl I found it condescending, though lollipops were fine (then).
Numerous times, during my college years and later, people who’d spent much time talking with me told me I “think like a man,” and they intended that as a compliment. They meant I was logical and articulate, the implication being that women in general were not. Logic was (wrongly) considered a uniquely masculine trait, emotionality a feminine one. It seems to me that everybody should strive for a good balance of rationality and emotion, logic and intuition, independence and compassion. Many women could be described that way, and so could many men.
That scene with Sen. Flake in the elevator took us right back to the old stereotypes about women. So does the radical leftist incarnation of the #MeToo movement, with its stupid hats and inane chants. Thanks to such behavior, women, OUR elevator is going DOWN, and it could be a long climb back up to real equality. It is my intention to distance myself from you as much as possible.
Incidentally, we’re finding out more about those women in the elevator, and the others who have been doing the “in your face” routine with senators. As noted last week, the women on the elevator with Sen. Flake were from the Center for Popular Democracy, a liberal activist group based in New York that leads an $80 million anti-Trump network primarily funded by George Soros. They orchestrated the whole thing. Ana Maria Archila, one of the women screaming at Flake, is a co-executive director of the organization. Later, she posted an account of the confrontation, bragging that Flake “would not make eye contact” and that CNN had reported he was “visibly shaken,” and taking credit for the delayed vote.
There’s much more about the Center for Popular Democracy at the link, here.
And activists have revealed that the protestors arrested for disrupting Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings (before any allegations of sexual misconduct had been made public) were paid cash. From the day of his nomination, those near-constant disruptions were scheduled as part of an organized effort to derail the confirmation process. The cash was for post-and-forfeit payments, to keep those arrested from going to jail. Money courtesy of George Soros, of course. This information appeared on September 22 (link here); have you heard anything else in the media about it?
The protestors are reveling in the effect they've had so far. When they get their way, as they did with Sen. Flake, they smell blood in the water and only become more thirsty for it (blood, not water). Why did Sen. Flake have to just stand there and take it while those women screamed at him? Did he feel guilty, as a man, for their anguish? Men as a “species” are not responsible for what some terrible individuals do. It’s not right for them to be sacrificed, like Jesus on the Cross, for the sins of others. Brett Kavanaugh should not be seen as the symbol of anything –- he’s a real, flesh-and-blood husband and father with legions of female friends, an educated and thoughtful American citizen with a long history of solid judicial rulings. He has rights, believe it or not. And Sen. Flake needs to stand up for Kavanaugh’s rights and the rights of all accused.
When Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy was confronted by one of these protestors in a Senate walkway on Monday, he didn’t just stand there like a human dart board. He responded with thoughtful answers. This, essentially, is how the conversation started:
SHE: Why are you supporting Kavanaugh?
HE: Well, how would you feel if your loved one were being destroyed by unsubstantiated charges? Why WOULDN’T I support Kavanaugh?
SHE: Because rapists are bad!
Now, there’s some logic. It goes on from there, and the video is available courtesy of THE DAILY CALLER (link below if you’d like to experience your head exploding). As a woman, I am pained by the lack of reason shown here by the protestor. It reminds me of the song Rex Harrison sings –- well, talks, actually –- called “Why Can’t A Woman Be More Like A Man.” I wonder why, in 2018, any woman of normal IQ can’t use her mind better than this.
Women, this behavior is just embarrassing and is going to set us back DECADES. I don’t care how strongly you believe in Roe v. Wade, or how much George Soros is paying you, or what, but you are making all of us women look like idiots. Even worse, if it turns out after all this that any of the witnesses against Kavanaugh were making things up --- as it seems they did --- how are legitimate victims ever going to be believed? How can we expect to be treated as equals when we’re acting like screaming toddlers? I'm only slightly kidding when I say men may decide they’ve had enough and start thinking, “Do I really want to be heterosexual?” Maybe they'll just decide to be celibate, or to have exclusive relationships with those new female robots, which I understand are very lifelike now. That may be just fine with some of you female protestors who really have it in for men, but I think it would be a darn shame.
