“There’s no such thing as sexism against men. That’s because sexism is prejudice + power. Men are the dominant gender with power in society.”
“…racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people have so much power over the rest of us. And want things to go back—not to 1955, but to 1855. There are a lot of people out there that do not want black people to vote, do not want Latinos to vote. Do not want old people to vote, or young people to vote. Because generally, people like you are liberal.
It’s absolutely possible that the Republicans will take over the Senate as well as the House. And we will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens. I mean, colleges will start closing up if they, if these people have their way. They don’t think money should go to giving you people dangerous ideas about how the world should be run.”
“[W]hat is it in the Republican DNA that makes them talk as if they’ve never talked with women? Why do they speak as if they are the party of cave dwellers who come out of their habitats every four years, say, or so, to grunt something so retro, so awkward, so Cro-Magnon as this?”
“We’ve put a spotlight on the people and the organizations taking the brunt of this arbitrary, across-the-board, spending cuts known as sequester. It’s still going on, by the way. And as you might imagine, it’s the most vulnerable among us taking the hits. Today, we focus on something pretty scary. It’s cuts to funding of victims of domestic violence.
…How do you get the members of Congress to say, “look, some women are going to die this week because these shelters are closing their doors to them”?”
“The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” Kunis exclaims. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it’s baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, ‘I’m a Republican.’ Why?”
“Paul Ryan, who teamed up with Akin in the House to sponsor harsh anti-abortion bills, may look young and hip and new generation, with his iPod full of heavy metal jams and his cute kids. But he’s just a fresh face on a Taliban creed — the evermore antediluvian, anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-gay conservative core. Amiable in khakis and polo shirts, Ryan is the perfect modern leader to rally medieval Republicans who believe that Adam and Eve cavorted with dinosaurs.”
“This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women. This is a pick for the base.”
“Victimization of women is as American as apple pie. I think people accept it and men’s right of passage, men’s rights as boyfriends and husbands.”
