UM-Dearborn Student Editorís War Against Conservative Women
College Insurrection ^ | 11/2/12 | Leslie Eastman

The real ”War Against Women” on campuses is the “War Against Conservative Women“.

It seems that the student editor of the University of Michigan – Dearborn’s “Michigan Journal” has decided the young women of her state need to vote their “lady parts” and not their “lady smarts”.

This report comes just a week before the presidential election: Women who vote for Republicans and Mitt Romney are “stupid … bitches” who support men who support rape, a campus newspaper editor opined.

In an op-ed published Tuesday by the Michigan Journal, the weekly student newspaper at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Opinion Editor Kristen Golembiewski’s piece, “Ladies, if you vote Republican, you bitches can walk home,” gives us a train-wreck view of how her brain works.

“I just don’t understand why any woman, regardless of race or social status, would vote for a candidate that has made misogynistic remarks on more than one occasion, did not support the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, is anti-choice, and made comments that alluded to the idea that women have to rush home after work to be with the kids and cook dinner. …

That just tells me that these women, well, I’m sorry to say it, but they’re stupid. Like, Sarah Palin stupid. … Stop making women have babies they don’t want and can’t support because you have this misguided notion that a fetus is a person which by the way, IT IS NOT. That’s why the medical term for it is “fetus,” not “baby.” …

Wanna talk about how a bunch of people Mitt allies himself with have made absolutely sickening comments on rape? … Oh, yes, America, you see, when a woman gets pregnant after being sexually assaulted, well, that’s just “something God intended to happen,” according to Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock – who Romney still stands by. …

So ladies, if you do choose to vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket next week, I’m sorry, but YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US. You know how beer commercials like to talk about taking away a dude’s “mancard” because he ordered the wrong kind of beer or made some other choice that depicted him as feminine? Well, if you go red on November 6, I’m hereby revoking your womancard. That’s right bitch, you’re out of the club.”

To pick apart this column piece by piece would honestly be a waste of time, and possibly lend credence to it. We don’t argue with Golembiewski’s right to voice her argument, we just wanted to offer this up as an excellent example of the left-wing idiocy that passes for thinking.

Note: The fact the article’s comment section already contains a disclaimer and a note that the comments section has been turned off offers intriguing clues as to how well received this piece is.

In an ideal world that editorial would get her relieved of her job.

Have they started wearing burkas at UM-Dearborn? The big Muslim cohort there can tell you what a real War on Women looks like.

(After reading the “rules for posting”)

So I can be hateful, rude and mean if I write for your paper but not if I’m reacting to something in it?

It’s another day in Obamaland. :)

She so perfectly depicts the ditzy, uninformed, foul mouthed, moral-less liberal woman.

Sadly this is becoming the norm. Young conservative women seem to be an endangered species these days.

Miss Ditz is an example of a retarded public education of indoctrination, the farm team for churning out at least one more generation of perfect Marxists.

We do nothing, and send our own kids off to these same camps, while wondering where the hell our country has gone.

When I went to school there, our nickname for the student newspaper was the “Michigan Urinal”.

The paper has come a long way since Saul Anuzis, former chairman of the Michigan Republican party, was the editor of the newspaper.

Dear Editor,

Apparently, I’m a bitch. At least that’s what Kristen Golembiewski seems to think, based on her recent screed posing as an editorial titled “Ladies, if you vote Republican, you bitches can walk home.”

As the Opinions editor of my college’s weekly newspaper, The Hillsdale Collegian, and a woman, I felt compelled to respond to my counterpart at the University of Michigan-Dearborn’s offensive and poorly written piece.

I hope I can help Golembiewski understand why some women choose to support Mitt Romney, as her very extensive research — a Google search of “Mitt Romney, women”— didn’t bring much clarity.

If all women need to succeed is more birth control and abortion access, then that is a sad reduction of women to mere sexual objects. American women have incredible control over when they have children, more than any other group of women in human history. Even more appalling is Golembiewski’s characterization of pregnancy, as if it is a horrible thing, like a type of cancer imposed upon women at random. Many of the very women Golembiewski seeks to defend would be disgusted at her calling their children “unwanted.”

I also don’t support misguided “fair pay” legislation or hiring preferences based on gender. It’s misogynistic to suggest the government has to “do something” to make women equal in the workplace. Quotas are demeaning. I don’t want to get hired because I’m a woman; I want to succeed because I am the best candidate. Golembiewski insults women by suggesting they can’t compete based on their own merits (because they’re stuck with babies, or something). Stop whining for special treatment.

The Senate candidates in question gave poor answers that misrepresented Republican positions, and mine. Golembiewski has articulated her position quite clearly, and it’s repulsive. Go ahead and kick me out of the ignorant, identity politics club.

And I don’t even have the space to address her total misreading of the movie “Mean Girls.”

Proud to be a hard-working, successful, happily married conservative mother of 3 beautiful children.

I'm voting Romney.

Sorry, no room in my car for whiners.
