It would be funny if it weren’t so sad that many in Arizona believe Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is the feminist in the Senate race. The media paints her as someone who fights for equal rights, but here’s the thing. She talks a lot. Her competitor, Martha McSally, has actually done something about equal rights throughout her life.
She was the first American female fighter pilot and the first to lead a fighter squadron. By contrast, Sinema’s feminist bona fides look a bit different:
“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bullsh**. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”
That is an actual quote from a Senate candidate, from an interview that took place in 2006, when she was already in office as a State Representative. God help us.
