There has been a lot of coverage of Linda McMahon’s affiliation with the WWE (and why women may find the footage a little, I don’t know, misogynistic), but Care2 has a disturbing new video showing just how degrading these clips are:
There’s a petition telling Republicans to reject candidates like McMahon, who made her millions by selling misogyny on national television, or Ken Buck, who told a rape victim that she just had “buyer’s remorse,” or Sharron Angle, who said that women who are raped shouldn’t be allowed to have abortions, and should simply make “a lemon situation into lemonade.”
Watching this video reminds us just how important this midterm election is – the candidates in Connecticut, Colorado and Nevada, to name just a few of the dangerously close races across the country, represent a kind of conservatism that has no respect for women and should not be allowed to govern our country. Sign the petition and tell Republican candidates that they need to start respecting women!
