Women As Second-Class Citizens

“Photos of White House Adviser Kellyanne Conway kneeling on an Oval Office couch have created a buzz on social media.”
See Kellyanne Conway couch photo sparks memes
With all the high crimes and misdemeanours being committed by Trumpists in the White House these days, folks are really wasting bandwidth looking askance at Conway. There’s a lot not to like about Conway (in her roll as chief Trumpist) but I look at the video and I see an older woman still young at heart, keeping her feet out of the way in a crowded room, exhibiting good flexibility and making quite a good candid photograph. Nothing wrong with that. In fact I think any employer should be glad to have women as employees as they are just better than men at doing such things. Men tend not to be as flexible nor as spontaneous. This is yet again another example of women being treated as second class. If any of the men in the pictures had whipped out a smartphone and taken a shot, no one would have batted an eyelash.

    It’s an office, not a religious shrine. Trump certainly doesn’t give anything but himself much respect. I wouldn’t expect that from those around him. I don’t see any disrespect from her.

    At least Trump genuinely likes women, unlike most Australian politicians who seem to prefer boys. ;-(

    Yeah… Trump just wants all women barefoot and pregnant.


    Or not.

    I think that the uproar is more about how she is not being respectful of the Oval Office. I seem to recall that Obama was chastised for not wearing a suit in there once.

    Couldn’t find a blonde in Manitoba Pogsey? Blondes are a dime a dozen these days, quit being a cuck.
