I am getting a much clearer understanding of the life, financial status, sexual disadvantage and political brain of women in America. The recent “alien” comments of Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin on what’s a “legitimate rape” says more about the lack of response from his female supporters.
Like the lack of an opposing effort in Albany to a mega hospital trying to monopolize the birthing delivery care process, strong female leadership is missing in action. The lack of protest from Mr. Akin’s women supporters reminds me of this scenario. A husband beats his wife and the wife feels she did something wrong to justify the abuse because “normally he’s a nice guy.” It’s one thing for women of the opposing party to voice disdain on the Todd Akin rape comments, but for his female supporters to not rethink their support or voice any kind of opposition is mind boggling.
Now I see why women continue to be second-class citizens. So my advice to GOP men is to continue to define a women’s rape definition, health care options and role in society since women are not united in their most basic functions. You should never help someone who believes they should be controlled.
