Misogyny in Michigan

The Mike Shirkey I knew when I served in the Michigan House of Representatives was just as bad as the one we see today. I called him vile in 2012 and that description continues to hold true.  Being term-limited has only emboldened him to say terrible and misogynistic things out loud because he knows that he will never be held […]

Michigan GOP Senator Lucido told female reporter, “These boys could have a lot of fun with you”

“He assured me it was nothing personal and this is just how he talks to young women.” It’s been quite awhile since a Michigan Republican has made the news for being a disgusting, sexist pig. But State Senator Peter Lucido reset that clock this week with remarks he made to Michigan Advance cub reporter Allison Donahue: I waited outside the […]

Female photographer on Facebook proves that everyday misogyny is a real thing but that we don’t have to allow it to be

There are two things that worry me most about Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy and the national, even international, megaphone it gives him. The first is that he’s so outrageous that he makes a zealot like Ted Cruz seem “reasonable”, a terrifying prospect. Second, and equally worrisome, Trump is giving voice, cover, and even legitimacy (in some people’s eyes, anyway) to […]

Michigan high school principal: Women should be slut shamed because boys are just sex maniacs, gosh darn it

Michigan high school principal: Women should be slut shamed because boys are just sex maniacs, gosh darn it

This right here? This is pure an unadulterated sexist bullshit: 1. Being wired more visual, males are attracted to shape and skin. Yes, a lot of bare skin or tightly covered (Spandex!) skin is a sexual distraction to a male. He will say, the more skin the better…but this leads him to treat women as ‘sex objects’ rather than respect […]

More misogyny in the Michigan House of Representatives – Rep Frank Foster calls nurses union staffer a c**t

More misogyny in the Michigan House of Representatives – Rep Frank Foster calls nurses union staffer a c**t

Boys will be boys pigs

It’s just another episode in a long, long string of episodes where some Michigan Republican men can’t get into any sort of back and forth with a woman without whipping out the sexist derogatory slurs. This time, it’s state House Representative Frank Foster.

While visiting the neighborhood of a Michigan Nurses Association staffer, he called her a “cunt”.

Updated: Anthony Weiner kicks Dems everywhere in the teeth

There are only a very small handful of Democratic politicians who have really disappointed me to the point of anger in my life. The first was Bill Clinton. This was a man who had the potential to do so very much to help promote Democratic ideals and policies. Yet, at the pinnacle of his power, he engaged in sexual dalliances, […]
