Who’s At War With Women?

We have heard ad nauseum  about the contrived “War on Women” that the republicans are supposedly waging.  The war on women is all about free contraceptives, because $1 condoms are just too expensive for women.

We have been peppered with accusations about the GOP and a War on Women, who haven’t said anything about restricting contraceptives, but who is it that is really at war with women?

Democrat strategists and frequent guest of President Obama, Hilary Rosen has attacked Ann Romney as women who “doesn’t know about economics because she has never worked a day in her life”.  Never mind the fact that Ann Romney is a stay-at-home mother of five children, has been fighting MS and has beaten back cancer.  According to Hilary Rosen, Ann Romney has no idea about the concerns of women.

I will narrow this war down.  The truth is and has been the Democrats are at war with women who are proud mothers and wives.  This fact was driven home by a letter in the Huffington Post by Vicki Larson entitled “Why Do Women Lose Themselves In Marriage?” I know some women lose themselves when they end up marrying a narcissistic man, and this goes both ways (speaking from past experience here), but I knew this article was much more general.  Before I read this article to my wife I predicted this was going to be an all out attack on marriage (I told my wife I read the Huffington Post because every once in while I need comedy) and Vicki did not disappoint:

“No matter how successful, assertive, or powerful some women are, the moment they become involved with a man they begin to give up part of themselves — their social life, their time alone, their spiritual practice, their beliefs and values.”

Imagine having to give up picking up men at a bar once your married.  Stay-at-home moms do lose their time alone but this is part of what democrats think is a problem.  Women are giving of themselves for children and a husband and in the minds of democrats this is wrong, this is keeping women down.

I don’t even know what Vicki Larson is referring to with, “losing their spiritual practice, their beliefs and values”.  It is usually the women who keep the men going to religious services.  It is a rare case, I dare say, where the man decides the religious culture within a family.  The only sense I can make of that statement is if Vicki was talking about women who have loose morals, a family would cause that women to lose those values–and what a tragedy that would be.

Obama’s own administration helps to prove the democrat war on women as we found out his administration pays women less than men. Women are making on average 18% less than their male counterparts in the Obama administration.  It is the democrats who are always squawking about gender gap in pay, yet Obama is one of the offenders.  Doing this while trying to contrive a GOP war on women while also trying to give the faux appearance of closing the gender gap makes one ask–

Who is at War With Women?

    Thanks for finding me, Skip.

    Just to be clear (and accurate, which I am sure you fully intended to do), I personally did not say, “No matter how successful, assertive, or powerful some women are, the moment they become involved with a man they begin to give up part of themselves — their social life, their time alone, their spiritual practice, their beliefs and values.” That was a direct quote from psychoanalyst Beverly Engel, author of “Loving Him Without Losing Yourself,” and which I attribute to her.

    For the record, of course, because Republicans and Democrats appreciate honesty.

    Thank you for your kind response, Vicki.
    I appreciate any chance to bring about accuracy. I am concerned as I’m sure you are about the rising divorce rates in our country and the effects it has on children involved. I have unfortunately been through a divorce, while my children were young (and hopefully that gives them the shelter of ignorance) precisely because I married a narcissist and did totally give up who I was.
    Divorce is (I know you are saying the same) neither a republican or democrat issue, it is a national issue and hopefully we can find a way lessen the rates for the health of the children and the bond made between lovers and God.
    Hopefully there is a way we can all find to lessen the reasons for divorce exceptions being a truly disfunctional or potentially harmful relationship.
    Marriage is an important institution for our children and our national soul and I know we can all work to make that a stronger cornerstone for all involved.
    God Bless you Vicki and once again thank you for your response.
