Read this post by Little Miss Chatterbox, one of the most right-wing, conservative bloggers around.
She is praising the virtues of the HBO film "Iron Jawed Angels" about the women's suffrage movement.
This just blows me away!!
Does she not realize that the Women's Suffrage Movement of the 19th century was a Liberal, Progressive Movement opposed by the very conservatives that she supports?!?
Does she not realize that if the conservatives had their way, she wouldn't even have a blog, or a vote, or a drivers license, or her own credit card.
She'd be trying to keep her apron pulled down over her unwanted pregnant belly while she struggled to get dinner fixed "on time", change the baby's diaper, light her fat-assed, lazy husband's cheap cigar and keep him supplied with fresh beers and doing it all quietly enough as to not disturb his TV viewing so she wouldn't "get taught a lesson".
It was Liberals, Progressives and so-called "activist judges" who accomplished everything she praises in "Iron Jawed Angels" and in the decades after. The conservatives of the day fought them tooth and nail every inch of the way and still begrudge them that victory. Many of today's conservatives still view giving women the right to vote as "the beginning of the end".
As recently as the 1950's, women were viewed as second-class citizens, subservient to men ("just like God intended") and not capable of intelligent, rational thought. They were too "emotional" and hostage to their "hormones".
It was Liberal and Progressive women in the 1960's who swept all of that crap away, once and for all, and allowed women like Little Miss Chatterbox to have a public voice which she uses to demean and demonize the very Liberals that freed her from servitude.
Few things piss me off more than blatant hypocrisy.
