  •  This is so true - just look at VA's Gov. McDonnell (6+ / 0-)

    McDonnell didn’t take too kindly to feminists in college, especially not employed feminists, who bitch about equal pay and then use their riches to buy condoms in order to have hypersexualized types of sex. In other words:

    He argued for covenant marriage, a legally distinct type of marriage intended to make it more difficult to obtain a divorce. … [H]e criticized federal tax credits for child care expenditures because they encouraged women to enter the workforce.

    “Further expenditures would be used to subsidize a dynamic new trend of working women and feminists that is ultimately detrimental to the family by entrenching status-quo of nonparental primary nurture of children,” he wrote.

    He went on to say feminism is among the “real enemies of the traditional family.”


    Sagely, McDonnell is now characterizing the college paper as an “academic exercise.” This is intended dissuade you, the crying woman, from reading too much into it, as you are wont to do.

    Both he and his crony Republican Legislature pushed through some of the most radical laws against women.  "War On Women" you bet your sweet ass.

    Also other laws against workers, cutting programs for Seniors, the poor, the disadvantaged, et. al., all in his college thesis.  Guess what?  Now all laws in the State of Virginia.

    So don't fall for the line - DUH! "It was back in college and doesn't have anything to do with how I am today."  Theoretically it may be true.  These guys are not like they were back in college -- THEY"RE WORSE!

    I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
