  •  I personally like to think that America (14+ / 0-)

    is great in spite of a group of old white men trying to deny civil rights to everyone else.

    •  It does seem to be the fault of a bunch (10+ / 0-)

      of old white men. But then you remember that the majority of voters in America are women. The majority. So there must be a decent number of women who actually vote for the old white misogynistic men.

      •  They can't get turned on anymore..bitter women (1+ / 0-)

          are not horny? I don't know, that idea can be viewed as somewhat demeaning to women itself. Perhaps there are women, completely normal women, who happen to believe in the Bible or Jesus or whatever who then support people like Rick Santorum. I do see many women in his audiences, and I doubt that all of them "can't get turned on anymore".

            talked to some married women in their 40'a and 50's who say sex is overrated or they don't need it.  They actually have taught their daughters how to avoid sex with their partners.
            I believe in Jesus and am a Christian but I do think it is a bit of frustration on some of these women's part.  Not all but some.
            I don't know where in the bible that it says that sex is wrong.
            The Song of Soloman is very sensual.  I honestly do believe some of these women think that if you enjoy sex, something is wrong.  i don't like Dr. Phil but he had a special on this one time and it was heartbreaking how young women could not be a wife to their own husbands over what they had been taught regarding their sexuality.  They said in the show that they didn't even feel anything.  It all came from misguided women on their own feelings of sex.

        Who can still tell right from wrong before we all exercise our misandry chops any further.

          misandrageic blancophobism (bias against old white men).

        •  I didn't say all (0+ / 0-)

          I don't care for false victimhood claims.   Facts are sometimes just facts.   The power structure in this country is older, predominantly white and predominantly male.   The glass ceilings in the corporate world still exist.  At the highest level of government, they exist.  Look at the Senate and tell me otherwise.

          In the Republican Party, this prevails to an even greater degree.   To talk about it, to tell it like it is, is something people better toughen up about.   We have an enemy, they are identifiable by age, sex, race, income bracket and party.

          If you want to tie yourself up in knots going, oh noes, we mentioned demographics, knock yourself out.
