No, Women Voters Are Not the Same
Despite feminists telling all women what to think, many think for themselves.
The woman’s vote is up for grabs in this critical election. The Left works feverishly to define the criteria of being a woman voter with its enforcement mechanisms that do little more than just add to the echo chamber: the media, faculty of higher education, and groups such as Planned Parenthood. They serve as the “Mean Girls Enforcement Squad” that swarms on Twitter, advocating censorship, bullying, and even aggressive confrontations while simultaneously calling for free speech, civil discourse, and peaceful protests, all with a straight face.
Who are the women of the political Left? As Cora Mandy put it in 2018, the feminism of Democrats defines “the ideal candidate” as someone who is “pro-abortion, anti-gun, unwilling to enforce immigration laws, and wants to socialize health care.” Further, these leftist feminists have begun taking aim at conservative women in articles, commentary, narrative, and commercials. They claim — without evidence — that conservative women are racists who affiliate with a party “indistinguishable from a hate group” and are “brainwashed by their husbands or conservative media and incapable of making their own decisions.”
Put simply, if you’re not a female who meets their “ideal candidate” criteria, you’re a “gender traitor.”
What about those women who happen to embrace the notion of life’s value, even that of the preborn, the aged, and the most fragile? What about the women who are not just interested in birth control, but in the economy, public safety, job creation, national defense, education with results, healthcare that comes with choices, competition, transparency, and freedom? These are the true women’s issues; women work to solve problems, not just foster grievances.
It’s insulting to be told that “women’s issues” must be about reproduction and abortion, opposition to the Second Amendment (which prohibits women to arm ourselves for self-defense), and government choosing our healthcare.
It’s insulting that women are assumed to prioritize personality over policies. The 2020 election is framed as a personality contest by the media because despite his effective policies, President Donald Trump can be a jerk. Reminding women that his personality is offensive is a tool of the political Left and the anti-Trump Republicans.
If you’re a top-performing athlete, do you want to play for the coach that wins or the one who tells you nice things to inflate your self-esteem? If you’re a patient seeking a surgeon, do you want the one with the best outcomes and survivability or one whose bedside manner delights you?
The fuel of today’s political machinery is to use hyperbole, rhetoric, and even lies to erase the historic economy of early 2020 that featured the record-low 3.5% unemployment rate, GDP that rose to 3% in 2018, and a record-setting median household income of $68,703 for 2019, almost 7% higher than 2018. These are issues that women understand impact their freedom, their personal worth, and increase their opportunities.
The woman’s vote is absolutely not homogenous and, contrary to the Democrat playbook, women are not emotionally incontinent dupes. But women on the Center-Right must no longer choose to be in the Silent Majority. It’s time to speak up, lead, and excel to counter the anger-driven cancel culture approach so characteristic of today’s progressive women.
While 2020 has been a year many don’t want to remember due to natural disasters, COVID-19, and all the drama that accompanies a presidential election year, it’s also the Centennial of Woman Suffrage. In 100 years, the rights and roles of women have been elevated. Yet it’s predominately women on the political Right who embrace a sense of hope that our best days are ahead and that women are, indeed, leading. Women voters may just be the ones who again lead the march to freedom.
