First, I am gobsmacked that there are people who write about or even notice if conservative women are more attractive than liberal ones. Then, I am outraged that there are such people. Then, I am sickened that, if true, it matters to anyone.

Darn, Violet, that article is as sexist as it gets. Give me brains over beauty any day so I don’t have to rely on a man to take care of me as though I were a child or an invalid or a conservative woman.

It’s crap like that article that reinforces my opinion that the greatest enemies of women are not necessarily the most powerful men but the everyday sexist bastards who populate our towns, teach our children, go to our (Well, not mine since I don’t attend) churches, play on the city baseball team, manage the grocery stores, and create all the babies they rarely support, much less raise. They are the true enemies of women.
