Phyllis Schlafly complains ‘only men’ blamed for sexual assaults against women

Published

on

Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly on Tuesday joined those condemning the Pentagon’s decision to allow women in combat, saying the new policy would lead to increased rates of sexual assaults.

Schlafly, a notorious anti-feminist, wrote at Human Events that the policy would adversely effect male soldiers, who would be enticed by their new female colleagues. She suggested that men would be unfairly blamed for the rise in sexual assault and harassment that would inevitably occur.

“Military women are already complaining about increased sexual assaults, and of course those problems will skyrocket. Only men will be deemed at fault because it is feminist ideology that men are innately batterers and women are victims,” Schlafly explained.

“The military is already plagued with reports of large sex scandals in our current coed army. At the Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, 32 instructors allegedly took advantage of their power over 59 recruits, and at least two instructors allegedly had sexual encounters with 10 different recruits.”

Schlafly is best known for her fight against the Equal Rights Amendment, which would have guaranteed equal pay to women.

The American Conservative Union (ACU), which hosts the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, has described her as “a trailblazer and icon of the conservative movement in America.”

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK
