Back to the Kitchen and Laundry

Some interesting stuff out here. Growing interest in repealing the right of women to vote. Not just Mark Robinson, the North Carolina GOP candidate for Governor.

“I absolutely want to go back to the America where women couldn’t vote.” Mark Robinson

Some say that the quote is out of context but it speaks for itself. This guy has gone off on a lot of strange tangents and it is frightening to think that he could be elected. And he is not the only guy that has been talking like this.

The desire for an end to women's suffrage and a repeal of the 19th Amendment seems to be a growing trend with a certain constituency. 

Amanda Marcotte can be a little strident but this is an article of hers worth pondering. 

Robinson is the most prominent Republican leader so far to speak out against the 19th Amendment, which was ratified in 1920. But this idea of repealing women's suffrage has been percolating in far-right circles for a while now. Prior to the Trump-endorsed Robinson, a Michigan congressional candidate endorsed by Trump in 2022, John Gibbs, supported the end of women's right to vote. Prominent conservative commentator Erick Erickson, who has worked for both Fox News and CNN, has also called for the end of women's suffrage. Joel Webbon, a conservative activist tied with the group writing "Project 2025," Trump's blueprint for a second term, also spoke in favor of repealing the 19th Amendment. 

Crazy time for sure. I wonder how the women in Texas would vote on this issue? Wouldn't be too surprised if the Tradwife movement there willingly gave up the vote. No abortion, no contraception, no abortion pill, no voting, just make babies and do as you are told.

Have you read about the SACR, the group that is calling for a national divorce and wants a new Christian nation that does not include Mormons, Jews, Jehovah Witnesses, Hindus, Muslims or Christian Scientists? This is quite an interesting read as well.

Women are not allowed in SACR, whatever their faith. The group emphasizes a traditional role for the man in the household, a robust and muscular exercise of temporal authority by men, and the forceful application of male dominion in civic affairs. 

Good luck with that.
