Ann Romney: “Why should women be paid equal to men?”

12:30 am - 04/30/2012

At a meeting with the “Moms For Mitt” group yesterday outside Philadelphia, PA, Ann Romney was asked her opinion on Lilly Ledbetter and equal pay for equal work regarding women’s employment. Without hesitation she responded with another question that seemed to shock even the most staunch conservatives in the room.

“Why should women be paid equal to men? Men have been in the working world a lot longer and deserve to be paid at a higher rate. Heck, I’m a working mom and I’m not paid a dime. I depend on my husband to provide for me and my family, as should most women… and if a woman does work, she should be happy just to be out there in the working world and quit complaining that she’s not making as much as her male counterparts. I mean really, all this wanting to be equal nonsense is going to be detrimental to the future of women everywhere. Who’s going to want to hire a woman, or for that matter, even marry a woman who thinks she is the same, if not better than a man at any job. It’s almost laughable. C’mon now ladies, are you with me on this?"

Stumbled into a post calling everyone whiny vaginas and has been trollin', trollin', trollin ever since. He seems to imagine himself as an intellectual, a person who thinks deep and dispassionate thoughts that haven't occurred to anyone else before (even when other douchebag conservatives have been saying them for years, including that little epiphany he had upthread).

And of course, like most dudebros, the fact that he can remain "calm and rational" while he pisses everyone else off is a testament to how right he is and how very, very wrong the vaginas are.

Also completely of the belief that everything happens in a vacuum and has no greater social contextual element to it whatsoever.

Yes -completely and utterly *this*.

Because... people never jump to conclusions because of how close to reality a situation is.

Just saying.
