4. The female reaction to the ACA repeal is massive!

They really screwed up and their brains are so badly caught in their zippers that they don't even realize what they have done nor what the repercussions will be. I can't wait to watch them attempt to justify what they have done. Betty Davis said, "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to a bumpy night". However I fully expect the Senate to repeat what the House did. After all they got Gorsuch into the Supreme Court for life.

5. I often wonder

Who the women are in these men's lives? How can they be silent? What message are they giving their children???

I was raised in the 70's. My dad always warned me never to let a man steal my power. My mother told me that our fight wasn't over.

6. I wonder the same. How can these women bear these men?

How can they stand by silently when their men are destroying people's lives. I really wonder what kind of human beings they are.

7. Yes!!!

I think of how many ways being a mother changed me. I think of other kids like I think of my own. I could never stay silent while my husband laid waste to families...or women in general!!! It is appalling.

10. possibly women brought up in weird sects that tell them that the male is all-powerful,

and the helpmeat (sp deliberate) is just there to service him. she has no thoughts of her own, is taught that, not only does she not have power, she is never to wish for power.

or, as in the case of phyllis schlafly, "I got mine, screw all the rest of you"
