    so how is it then that so many women vote republican....

    Have they been so brainwashed that they see their role in this world as homemaker, child care provider and baby incubator as well......

    i just don't get how any woman can vote for the GOP......

    •  I don't comprehend that either (1+ / 0-)

      Perhaps driven by the tribal mentality and bigotry, they overlook their own self interest.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

    •  Women who vote republican are largely older, white (5+ / 0-)

      and married.  They are following the unspoken rules that exist in their world.  Thinking and voting progressively would threaten their husbands and social peers.  It's easier to stay on the inside than get expelled to the outdoors.

      •  There are a few that pretend to be Republicans. (1+ / 0-)

        They are registered Republican but quietly vote Democrat in the general elections.  That way they keep peace at home with friends and family.  With what is going on now, there should be more in the next election that will vote Democrat and family will never know about it.  I know retired women who were life long Republicans and after their husbands died they changed their voter registration to Democrat.  For them it was like coming out of the closet.

    •  I think they see these laws (5+ / 0-)

      as punishing "bad" women – sinful sluts who are going around enjoying sex, not "good" women like themselves.  You have your insecure women who hang their value on approval from men.
