This is just terrible

John Derbyshire thinks that women shouldn't be allowed to vote... didn't misunderstand...Derbyshire of the National Review recently argued against women's suffrage in his new tome We are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism.

Here's what he said about his "scholarly work" on the radio

"[Women] want someone to nurture, they want someone to help raise their kids, and if men aren't inclined to do it -- and in the present days, they're not -- then they'd like the state to do it for them."

He then continued to spew his vile with...

"Among the hopes that I do not realistically nurse is the hope that female suffrage will be repealed. But I'll say this - if it were to be, I wouldn't lose a minute's sleep."

GROSS. And people say there isn't a need for feminism..tsk tsk.

We Need a Fucking Revolution

  1. How ignorant can you possibly be?! It's amazing to me that someone can actually discriminate against and opress an entire group of people based on a stereotype which was created by the oppressors in the first place (i.e. the woman's main role is childcare)!
