This image sums up a large part of what’s wrong with our society today; boys are programmed to think their sex makes them automatically brilliant, while girls are told they should focus on their looks alone. It’s things like this that continue to program even female politicians into believing that men are superior to women. As North Carolina Rep. Renee Ellmers just told the Republican Study Committee: “men do think at a higher level” so if they want to get women on board with the GOP, “we need our male colleagues” to “bring it down to a woman’s level.”
How does Ellmers not realize that in saying women are inherently inferior to men, she’s (further) convincing her male colleagues that she isn’t equally qualified to the task she’s been elected to do? Ridiculous.
