The Republican candidate running for former Rep. Gabrielle Gifford’s (D-AZ) seat on Friday responded to Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s comment about women in combat by saying she wanted to “kick him in the jimmy.”

“I do have concerns about women in front line combat,” Santorum had told CNN’s John King last week. “I think that could be a very compromising situation people naturally, you know, may do things that may not be in the interests of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved.”

The former Pennsylvania senator later clarified that he was talking about men’s emotions, not women’s.

On Friday, GOP hopeful Martha McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and the first American woman to fly in combat, told Fox News host Steve Doocy that Santorum was “out of touch.”

“You know I agree with many of the things that Rick Santorum says, but when I heard this I really just wanted to go kick him in the jimmy,” she said. “He’s totally out of touch. I mean, completely out of touch. These are the types of arguments we heard 20 to 25 years ago as to why women couldn’t be fighter pilots. It’s an insult to the men and women who are serving overseas, putting their lives on the line and focusing on the mission right now.”

According to Urban Dictionary, “jimmy” is slang for male genitalia.
