Wendy Davis and Hillary Clinton, pictured separately. Both smiling.
1. If you're a woman married to a successful politician, and you are a successful politician, you only got there because of your man. Duh. Even if you were considered a rising political star before you married him. [Note: This doesn't apply to Elizabeth Dole. OBVIOUSLY.]

2. If you've ever been a single mom and broke, scared and working several jobs to get through school, that part of your past doesn't count in your life story if you marry a supportive nice guy later. As Disney has taught us, princes wipe the slate clean.

3. If a man leaves his wife in charge of the kids while he advances his career—basically every family man who's ever been deployed in the military—he's a hero. If a woman does it, she's a criminally horrible mom.

4. If you're single woman and successful in high political circles, you're probably a lesbian. If you're not, you're a slut.

And these are just a few examples of the conservative take on women. What are some of your favorite—and by "favorite" I mean repulsive—examples of the Republican mindset when it comes to women?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
