GOP Lawmaker Shows Us Some Valentines Love by Declaring Women “A Lesser Cut of Meat”

How do we handle all the love that Republicans show women?

Maybe it was in the spirit of Valentines Day that Republican lawmakers and pundits were so eager to show us the love during this past week by declaring war on yoga pants and now declaring women a “lesser cut of meat.”

Conservative love for women is legendary.  Their presidential candidates find us in binders.  Republican lawmakers are so determined to protect us from the hardship of making our own reproductive decisions that they have designated family planning a decision to be made by the state.  They show us the love with opposing equal pay for women who do the same job as a man and by blaming us for ruining a rapist’s life by reporting this violent crime.

According to FITS News  (a libertarian news site) Republican State Senator Thomas Corbin directed his Fred Flintstone level wisdom on women to SC Senator Katrina Shealy during a legislative dinner at which lawmakers were having a discussion about criminal domestic violence.  Of course, this is a topic that creates so many headaches for Republicans because it shines yet another light on their attitude toward women.  It’s such a hassle when a Republican lawmaker’s son kicks, punches and drags his pregnant fiance by the hair and people think that should be a crime.

The son of the State’s Comptroller General  was charged but he escaped legal accountability.  The fact that he was even charged was enough for Corbin to direct various bizarre but indisputably sexist comments at the only woman in the State’s Senate.

After all, one woman is one too many for such enlightened Republicans like Thomas Corbin and he has made. Shealy was elected in 2012 as a petition candidate and aside from Corbin’s “lesser meat” comment he is reported  to have told Shealy. ”I see it only took me two years to get you wearing shoes.”

Real witty, and so not sexist, right?

Full quote for context of the “lesser cut of meat” comment, per Jezabel.  When Shealy called Corbin out for his sexist attitude, he responded with the following.

Well, you know God created man first,” a smirking Corbin replied. “Then he took the rib out of man to make woman.  And you know, a rib is a lesser cut of meat.

Of course, other SC Republicans tried ever so hard to say they don’t share Corbin’s views.  He’s just a guy who believes women don’t belong in South Carolina’s legislature.  They should be “at home baking cookies” or “barefoot and pregnant” (unless Corbin can get them to wear shoes.)

But hey, he says stuff like that to and about everyone.  Like when he made a speech about Common Core in 2013, somehow he thought it relevant to talk about “gay man juice.

The thing is Corbin is the latest example of the Republican Party’s problem with women.  It really doesn’t matter if they take a course on “how to talk” to women.  The GOP, in reality, shares Corbin sentiment that the majority of America’s population is a “lesser cut” of meat. We see it in their rhetoric and in their policies.
