Skip to comments.Warren pregnancy debate another example of sexism in the guise of scrutiny (Freeper heap bad alert)

It was another instance of that most common of events: a woman, diminished.
Earlier this week, Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate, was asked about a story that she's mentioned often on the campaign trail: In 1971, when she was 22 years old and completing her first year of teaching, she lost her job once it became clear that she was visibly pregnant. It was, she tweeted, "an experience millions of women will recognize."
But over the past few days, conservative news sites and mainstream outlets either have sought to directly refute Warren's account or have disputed it in such a way that it seems as if there's some reason to doubt that a school in the early 1970s would fire a pregnant woman. But that kind of discrimination continues today. (As The New York Times documented earlier this year, American companies still "systematically sideline" pregnant women by, for instance, passing them over for promotions.)
Warren's story, however, fits into a much larger pattern, one that will indeed be familiar to many women: It's the tradition of sexism in the guise of scrutiny.

“as if there’s some reason to doubt that a school in the early 1970s would fire a pregnant woman”
My mother became and remained a teacher twice as such even BEFORE that.
She lied. Blatantly. Again.
But to these mentally diseased people - facts don’t matter. Just the ‘truth’.
Crockajawea say because-em “Believe all squaws!”
Still have-em papoose bump even after rain dance around lodge pole. Heap big on warpath now!
Is it journalism when Democrat thieves coverup for other Democrat thieves?
WOW CNN bends over backwards to protect the fake Indian like no other. If Warren were a Republican and made the same claim CNN would be the first to call her a liar
Minutes from a 1970 meeting New Jereseys Riverdale Board of Education show Warren was unanimously approved for a second-year contract in 1970. Minutes from a meeting the next year, 1971, show Warrens resignation was accepted with regret.Warren lied about being fired, just like she lied about her Indian ancestry.
She was desperate to have the things that all liberals want.:
1. to be a minority
2. to be a victim
Rather than teach, or be a stay at home mom, she went back to school, as an "American Indian".
Who would impregnate THAT????
She’s quoted years ago saying that she didn’t have the credits to continue teaching. It’s her own quote.
CNN is not a news org. Once you understand that it all makes sense.
“a woman, diminished.”
How in heaven’s name did their auto-correct change “lying” to “diminished”?
My mother had 4 kids while teaching
Was Laz around back then??
Like Dan Rather was saying, "[OK, it was] fake, but accurate."
Similarly, the defense of Obama's lies about a supposed girlfriend, about whom it was later claimed that "she was actually an amalgam of several different women."
Now were given that EW's representation was defensible, and to prove it, she's using her lie to highlight stories of other women in the United States who have faced gender-based discrimination.
Dems are willing to stretch the truth so far that it's long since become unrecognizable.
Their "standard" tries to suggest that if their words contain even a grain of truth, we should swallow them whole.
Did she actually say she was ‘fired’. The article above says “she lost her job”. There’s a difference.
I supposed she could use the excuse that she felt ‘pressure’ to resign.
Either way, sounds like she went to the Joe Biden school of campaign storytelling.
Please dont pick on our wonderful LAZ, LOL. The thought of any man having sex with Grey Beaver is projectile vomit-inducing.
Well, in fairness, she was reasonably attractive the month she was in her prime:
