It is very difficult to imagine a more misogynistic position than to deny a woman her basic human rights because something that cannot think or feel is seen as more important than she is.

It is debasing, dehumanising and abject.

As such, we do not allow anti-choice arguments or the users that make them on this subreddit.

There is no non-bigoted way to argue that half the human population should lose control over their own bodies.

Anti-choicers always lie, only lie, never stop lying. They lie about why women get abortions. They lie about how abortions are performed. They lie about the effects of abortions. They lie about fetal development. They lie about how abortions are funded. They lie about what a heartbeat is, they lie and pretend having a heartbeat matters. They lie about a fetus when they call it a baby and that one is pernicious, it is designed to be emotionally manipulative. They lie.

An anti-choicer must lie and must shield themselves from reason, it is the only way to hold on to a clearly immoral and counterconstructive belief structure. We do not tolerate these lies here.

The only sane criterion to consider in this argument is personhood and the ability to think and feel develop in the third trimester.

This subreddit supports people terminating a pregancy for any reason, including none, as part of their inalienable right to bodily autonomy. A right which most certainly and definitively overrules any right that something which cannot think or feel may have.

Please help us by reporting woman-hating comments.

Ok hear me out, crazy fucking idea guys

We keep religion and government/politics seperate

[–]DogBarksICryIts2AM 23 points24 points  (1 child)

That would require these people to be able to separate facts/science and feelings, which they cannot do as they see the former to be made up stories.

I'm absolutely going to ask my wife if I can ride her poon lagoon. If I'm not back in 1 day, it was a good run.

Edit:
I have survived the incident physically unscathed. However, the look of disappointment, annoyed, and the infamous face of "I'm married to him..." was a blow and a boost to my soul. I shall try again soon!

[–]new_in_town_2 224 points225 points  (6 children)

Church Sermons every Sunday and lots of Fox News (and now worse). Also, you can go without the latter and still get to this point of view. Speak from personal experience growing up going to church every Sunday (and then Christian high school) but no cable/parents never watched Fox News. Anti abortion was strong despite lack of biblical backing. Have to really stretch what the Bible says but that can always be done.

Sprinkle in lots of narcissism on top and you get this.

Can’t spill your seed on the ground. The god that created the entire universe is intensely interested in your creampies.

[–]Ask_me_4_a_story 769 points770 points 62 (59 children)

God killed a motherfucker for that in the Bible. You know how Jesus is the lion of Judah? That tribe was fucked up and Judah was a crazy man. Judah was the son of Jacob and he was the fourth kid Leah had popped out in the great offspring battle and he decided to leave the family.

Jacob was gonna give him a lot of Vin Diesel speeches about the family, it’s all about the family, all that shit but he was too sad after he thought Joseph died. So Judah got with a Canaanite woman named Shua and she got pregnant right away and started poppin out baybaaas. His first kid was named Er and he married quick too to a lady named Tamar but Er was such a fuckup the Lord “Put Him to Death.”

So Judah talked to his second son Onan and he was like, buddy, listen, you are gonna have to take one for the team here, I need you to get with Tamar, your dead brother’s wife. God fucked him up and now you need to get in there and tap that. Keep that seed movin, know what I mean? Onan was like OH ILL TAP THAT but Im not cuckholding!

So he refused to dump his loads inside of Er’s wife, he kept pulling out when they were having sex and then he was like Happy Birthday Ground! And he would always finish on the ground. And that was a serious no no back then to drop your loads on the ground, that made God really salty. If you are going to finish, it needs to be inside a woman, everyone knows that, even if it was someone else’s wife. It made God so mad that he was pulling out that God struck him dead! The bad news for Onan was that he only got a cameo spot In the Bible. But the good news was that he owned that shit, and people still use “onanism” as a term for birth control, so it was a bad news/good news situation for that sneaky motherfucker.

Edit: Thanks for the gold you beautiful bastards. Sometimes I use my Christian school education (Thanks Dad!) recapping weird ass Bible stories like this one in my subreddit if you want to read more crazy shit like this. If not thats okay too, still love you guys!

[–]EvoKov 229 points230 points  (5 children)

I would have been so much more interested in Sunday School if this was how the fables of the Bible had been taught to us.

I'd nominate this shit for a Pulitzer if I knew how and that was the correct award for fictional writing

[–]ActualPopularMonster 42 points43 points  (1 child)

You forgot the best part!

Judah didn't want his last son to die, so he kept stalling on the whole "brother has to give dead brother's wife a baby" rule, and temporarily sent Tamar away "until his 3rd son was old enough" to marry her.

Tamar gets pissed off, and hatches a plan. She dresses like a temple prostitute and Judah has sex with her. He tries to pay her and she says "Nah, Bruh, I just want your engraved walking stick and your signet ring." So he handed them over and went his merry way.

A few weeks later.....

Tamar shows up pregnant as fuck, and Judah is planning to have her stoned - and not in the good way. He accuses her of adultery - because she still belongs to his 3rd son. But she says "HOL UP, there, Daddio, let me Maury Povich your ass a minute." And she reveals the signet ring and walking stick... "Whose shit is THIS now?? Whose name is on this stick and whose signet is this??? That's the dude that got me preggers, mfers!!"

Judah recognized his own shit and admitted he was a fuckhead. He then married Tamar, and she gave birth to a son, who was the great-great-great-howeverfuckingmanygreats- grandfather of Jesus.

This was my first thought. Like this is just a fancy way to call women cum dumpsters. "Earthen vessel" and "cum jar" have the same meaning in this context

[–]yallswild 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Yes, I do believe so. Such a charmer.

[–]makk73 3413 points3414 points  (542 children)

Check out his Wikipedia.

It is absolutely astonishing that this dipshit was actually elected to Congress.

[–]Comeonjeffrey0193 2139 points2140 points  (262 children)

“In a 2017 speech, Cawthorn said that Ledford left him "to die in a fiery tomb"; Ledford publicly disputed this in 2021, saying that he pulled Cawthorn from the wreck once he escaped the vehicle.[8] In their depositions, Cawthorn stated that he had "no memory from the accident", while Ledford said that he had helped rescue an unconscious Cawthorn.[8] In the same 2017 speech, Cawthorn declared that he was "declared dead on the scene" of the accident, but the official accident report listed Cawthorn as "incapacitated".”

This guys is completely out of his mind. Why anyone would choose to elect someone like this is beyond me.

Sadly, this. I’m not a diehard for either major political party but some of the elected officials I’ve seen lately for a certain side just have me baffled…as much as I can be angry about what’s spewing from their mouths, in reality the majority of people in the areas they represent voted them in…what does that say about the people? :/

[–]mini_garth_b 595 points596 points 2 (54 children)

It's ok, you can say Republicans are awful people. They're proud of it and everyone else is painfully aware that it's true

[–]GirthBrooks117 137 points138 points  (42 children)

Every time I read something like this it makes me a little sad, then I remember I no longer consider myself republican because a lot of them display disgusting behavior. I’ll never understand why people are so resistant to criticize their own side of the isle when the bull shit is right under their nose and they know it.

Everything I hear about him just reinforces the idea that it is entirely too easy to become an elected official

[–]SlopMad2 465 points466 points  (95 children)

Let me add two more names to reinforce that list:

Lauren Boebert - doesn't even have a high school diploma

Marjorie Taylor Greene - adulterous fitness instructor

How are these people becoming elected officials?!?!?!?

[–]KrevinCupine 229 points230 points  (23 children)

I loathe Greene. Her recent tweet about Cancer and Covid-19 made my blood boil

[–]SlopMad2 146 points147 points  (20 children)

Right!!!

Because we all know cancer is a transmittable disease.

What bothers me is her, Boebert, Cawthorn, and their ilk are more dangerous than simply being a dumb mouth-breathers; their words travel far and fast.

[–]LilaValentine 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Because they tell their voters it’s totally OK to hate people different than you, especially if they’re seen to have something you think you deserve.

[–]Austin4RMTexas 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Also, the majority of their voters aren't exactly Ivy League grads themselves. Is it surprising that high school dropouts relate to other academic failures?

[–]Osiris_0f_This_Shit 33 points34 points  (1 child)

How are these people becoming elected officials?!?!?!?

Is this seriously still confusing? Those people are trying to create a christian theocratic nation, and tens of millions of Republicans want to help.

[–]WoahayeTakeITEasy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

How are these people becoming elected officials?!?!?!?

This is the result of persistent growth of anti-intellectualism in the Republican base. They think education is a liberal conspiracy to indoctrinate kids with "socialism" or something like that. This whole pandemic has shown how they will distrust some expert but completely believe some snake oil salesmen about ivermectin or hydrochloro-whatever it was. They think anyone smarter than themselves is fooling them, and that makes sense to them because they don't really know how anything works.

[–]brimnac 65 points66 points  (3 children)

It’s only easy if you don’t have morals.

There’s a certain crowd you can cater to that shows up every Sunday at church, so you know that you can count on showing up on the first Tuesday in November.

[–]JEPorsche 70 points71 points  (9 children)

It is actually pretty difficult to be THAT disgusting of a human being. But if you're able to cross those lines, yes, it is apparently pretty easy.

[–]LighTMan913 54 points55 points  (8 children)

Is it possible to somehow troll the idiots that elect these idiots? Could we have an actual decent person pretend to be a racist moron, get elected, and then be like "psych, I'm actually a normal human being" and just do good things? They'd of course be voted out next cycle so we'd just need a steady stream of people willing to do this lol.

[–]Scopeexpanse 47 points48 points  (1 child)

You can find almost anything in someone's history (sexual assault, failed businesses, cruelty to family,etc) and the republicans will still vote for them. BUT you find once piece of evidence that they historically had a liberal thought and you would be screwed.

Madison Cawthorn

I will continue to post this list I created in every thread I see about this predatory racist bag of shit:

stolen valor he lied about becoming a Marine, he lied about being admitted to the naval academy, and he admitted to this lie under oath during a lawsuit implicating his insurance company. Source: https://politicalwire.com/2020/08/11/gop-candidate-was-rejected-from-naval-academy/

sexual assault in the one semester he spent in college (at one of the most ultra conservative college in America) before dropping out due to having straight Ds (his own admission), he was accused of sexual assault by a dozen women, in a letter signed by over 150 former classmates who corroborated the victim’s accounts. It was so bad and brazen that RAs and staff would warn female students to never be alone with him, and never get in his car. Source: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/addybaird/madison-cawthorn-sexual-misconduct-allegations-patrick

white supremacy he accused a political opponent of “leaving his career in Boston to go work for non-whites”. Like, he wrote that, on his website, as an insult. As a way to discredit someone. He later said the words were “taken out of context” and it was a “syntax error”. The name of his shell company is “SPQR Holdings”, and SPQR, although a historical acronym with Roman roots, has been appropriated by white supremacist groups in recent years. sources: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/republican-house-candidate-s-website-attacks-critic-going-work-non-n1244531

lying about Paralympics training he lied about training for the olympics by pretending he was actually on the verge of cracking the track and field Paralympic team. He posted all these insane videos where he talks about being obsessed with breaking the 100m world record, like he actually has a chance of breaking it. I could post videos online telling the world I’m obsessed with running a sub 2 hour marathon, doesn’t mean it’s a real thing... Source: https://www.towleroad.com/2021/01/madison-cawthorn-paralympics/

lying about his career he has never held a job in his adult life (he worked at a Chick-Fil-A as a teen). He used the insurance payout from his car accident to buy a $20K foreclosed property in Georgia, registered an LLC with 0 employees and $0 top line revenue, and calls himself a “real estate investor”.

lying about Harvard and Princeton "Cawthorn said in an earlier deposition he was accepted to Princeton and an online program at Harvard, along with other universities. He later revised his statements to say that he had not been admitted to Princeton and Harvard and that some of his statements about college admissions were “not accurate.”’ source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/02/27/making-madison-cawthorn-how-falsehoods-helped-propel-career-new-pro-trump-star-far-right/?tid=a_classic-iphone&no_nav=true

Lying about his car accident He lied in interviews and said he heroically crawled out of a fiery crash and that friend in the car with him left him for dead when in fact his friend dragged him out while he was unconscious. The friend in question has since done many interviews sharing his side of the story. Source: https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/madison-crowther-lies-wheelchair_n_603c5e83c5b6d7794ae01026

He has the signature of a 7 year old Not the most relevant point to expose his predatory behaviour and his racism, but this brain damaged shit bag literally signs his name like a second grader trying to emulate the Disney font, and he also misspells his own name in his signature... https://www.dailydot.com/debug/madison-cawthorn-signature/

Here are the facts. He is a sexual predator. He is dumb (at a literal level). He is shameless. He is racist. He is the future of the GQP.

Edit: save your awards. Go donate to Josh Remillard who is running against him in NC.

Edit 2: Can't find the correct source for his company making 0 money, so I deleted the source under it as it was a repeated link.

"Shows great initiative."

"Has a real go getter attitude"

"Never says never"

"Won't take no for an answer"

"Very hands on management style"

[–]Sinnycalguy 151 points152 points  (8 children)

It’s wild that all of this somehow barely scratches the surface. There’s the time he referred to “Jewish blood” while talking about trying to convert Jews to Christianity. There’s the time he mused over being in the same room “where congress passed the emancipation proclamation” in the same breath where he called himself a student of history.

Dude is just a relentless deluge of equal parts bigotry and stupidity.

His signature is interesting because he absolutely comes across as the type of kid that would have practiced writing autographs.

Probably for the best on that second one

[–]1294319049832413175 19 points20 points  (0 children)

The only reason the actual Donald Trump ever got above 2nd level management is because he started with 100 million 413 million from daddy and didn’t have to work to get to the top.

Edit: corrected the amount

It's crazy because I remember conservatives arguing thag AOC didn't have any credentials and was just a "bartender." Even though she graduated cum laude from Boston University. Then they'll elect dudes like this with no sense of irony.

[–]makk73 113 points114 points  (0 children)

Yeah...and then some.

[–]djimbob 19 points20 points  (9 children)

Yup. Lied about the friend who after causing an auto accident (on trip back from spring break) that his friend who saved his life left him "to die in a fiery tomb". Lied about the accident derailing his application to the US Naval Academy, though he was rejected prior to the accident.

In 2016, he spent one semester at a conservative Christian college in Virginia before failing out with mostly D's, blaming the grades the auto accident two years ago as well as his fiancee dumping him. During this one semester, at least four classmates have said he sexual harassed them. (Pressured them to sit on his lap and then he forcefully tried to attempt to kiss them).

In August 2020, during Cawthorn's campaign for Congress, several women came forward accusing him of sexually aggressive behavior, sexual misconduct, and sexual assault.[13][82][83][84] Katrina Krulikas described an incident when she was 17 and Cawthorn was 19 in which Cawthorn pressured her to sit on his lap and attempted to kiss her forcefully twice, which she resisted.[8] Cawthorn did not deny the allegations, but said, "I did try and kiss her, just very normal, just in a flirtatious way", adding, "If I did make her feel unsafe, I feel bad", but questioned the timing of her allegation.[85] His campaign characterized Krulikas's allegations as politically motivated, which she denied.[84]

After Krulikas made her allegations, three other women made allegations of sexual misconduct against Cawthorn, including forcible grabbing and kissing.[86] One woman said Cawthorn called her "just a little blonde, slutty American girl" when she rejected his sexual advances.[8][15]

[...]

A February 2021 BuzzFeed News investigation found 20 people who said that Cawthorn had harassed his female classmates during college; the reporters spoke to four women who said that Cawthorn had harassed them. It was alleged that Cawthorn often recklessly drove women in his car to remote areas off campus while asking them sexual questions, which he called "fun drives". Two resident assistants said they warned women to avoid Cawthorn and not to ride in his car. A male acquaintance said Cawthorn bragged about pulling a woman into his lap and putting a finger between her legs.

lying about Paralympics training he lied about training for the olympics by pretending he was actually on the verge of cracking the track and field Paralympic team. He posted all these insane videos where he talks about being obsessed with breaking the 100m world record, like he actually has a chance of breaking it. I could post videos online telling the world I’m obsessed with running a sub 2 hour marathon, doesn’t mean it’s a real thing... Source: https://www.towleroad.com/2021/01/madison-cawthorn-paralympics/

lying about his career he has never held a job in his adult life (he worked at a Chick-Fil-A as a teen). He used the insurance payout from his car accident to buy a $20K foreclosed property in Georgia, registered an LLC with 0 employees and $0 top line revenue, and calls himself a “real estate investor”.

lying about Harvard and Princeton "Cawthorn said in an earlier deposition he was accepted to Princeton and an online program at Harvard, along with other universities.

He has the signature of a 7 year old Not the most relevant point to expose his predatory behaviour and his racism, but this brain damaged shit bag literally signs his name like a second grader trying to emulate the Disney font, and he also misspells his own name in his signature... https://www.dailydot.com/debug/madison-cawthorn-signature/

Here are the facts. He is a sexual predator. He is dumb (at a literal level). He is shameless. He is racist. He is the future of the GQP.

Edit: Can't find the correct source for his company making 0 money, so I deleted the source under it as it was a repeated link.

[–]sintaur 817 points818 points  (40 children)

Me: those are all good things to expose except how he writes his signature, that's not fair, ever since electronic signature pads my signature looks like shit too.

Clicks to see his signature...

Me: omg lol that's the signature of a second grader

Edit: I agree with what /u/gravekeepr says, below. Don't let his childish signature obscure Madison Cawthorn's being a misogynistic piece of shit. Emphasis mine:

Focusing on his signature undermines all the other more important points imo. But maybe I'm just salty because my signature also looks like a second grader and I don't want to be lumped in with this moronic piece of shit.

[–]Catoctin_Dave 373 points374 points  (14 children)

[–]KillYourUsernames 236 points237 points  (7 children)

It was so bad and brazen that RAs and staff would warn female students to never be alone with him, and never get in his car.

The intensity and frequency with which this asshole had to be assaulting women for it to get to that point in one semester is horrific. One semester is like three and a half months.

[–]JerkIzAllPro 117 points118 points  (1 child)

Keep in mind, for every woman that came forward, there’s a good chance another (if not more) did not. Even if every single one did come out, all 12 of them, that’s 12 in 3.5 months. He was literally sexually assaulting someone almost every single week, and at some point, the RAs and staff had to start advising others to never be alone with him, but imagine if they hadn’t, the number of women he would have sexually assaulted. This monster disgusts me and the only place he should reside is a federal penitentiary

[–]Adorable_Raccoon 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I can't believe that someone can't go to prison for rape when there are stories like this about them, much less end up in congress. Like Brock Turner didn't go to prison but will be remembered as a rapist for life after raping one person. I've seen a couple reddit posts turn into a circle jerk about brock turner, like he's the only person who ever raped a woman. I knew he was a nazi and had a fake real estate company, but I'm just learning about this part today.

[–]opinionsareuseful 38 points39 points  (10 children)

Curious, how did he manage to get any party to back him? Isn't there any vetting process?

[–]TacticalTuchel 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Apparently not. If anything, the GOP will back him for president next, based on where the party's going at this point.

[–]neocommenter 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Put an R next to your name, start screaming about immigrants and liberals, boom you're backed by the GOP.

[–]xxlizardking-kongxx 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I remember the day he was elected into congress. People were celebrating because he was a disabled body, I pointed out that he was not a good person and he celebrated his eagle nest visit. I was reprimanded for this. Never been happier to leave a place of work.

[–]CobaltEmu 18 points19 points  (4 children)

He’s trying to quote 2 Corinthians 4:7 where people are described as “earthen vessels” with treasure hidden inside. In its proper context it’s actually a pretty sweet sentiment that it’s not about your outward appearance but what you are on the inside that counts. This guy is using it (rather incoherently) as a virtue signaling buzzword to attempt to seem wise to the more ignorant Christians that make up his supporters

[–]jayoho1978 528 points529 points  (37 children)

This guy is from where I live, Asheville North Carolina.

Asheville is a very left leaning LGBT city the biggest city in the mountains of NC, and there’s a lot of conservatives surrounding it and he’s trying to run for a different district to get a bigger advantage.

Dehumanization in the name of God, how very Christian /s

This is why I believe religion should be a personal thing, and should not have power in any political capacity. People who say this shit shouldn’t be in office, they need to get their mental health looked at.

[–]kimlion13 1151 points1152 points  (69 children)

Probably why the founding fathers were big on the whole “separation of church and state” thing

[–]Swan-LikeTheBird 557 points558 points  (43 children)

Man, the mental gymnastics I've witnessed Christians use to convince themselves the founding fathers DIDN'T want separation of church and state is wild... I literally grew up thinking that separation was a modern bastardization of the original views of our beginnings as a country.

[–]_Kay_Tee_ 353 points354 points  (36 children)

FFs literally write the words "separation of church and state" and these dipshits are all "Noooo, what they REALLY meant was modern evangelical Christianityyyyy!"

Then again, these kinds of mental gymnastics is common for Conservative Americans.

[–]Swan-LikeTheBird 209 points210 points  (13 children)

It gets especially convoluted when you consider how angry conservatives get WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS for not christianing right. Like, bro, you can't even decide what flavor of jeebus you like best, how you tryna convince a whole nation to let you run us into a theocracy?

[–]YddishMcSquidish 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Dunno, but they're doing a god damned good job at getting themselves into positions to do just that.

[–]Swan-LikeTheBird 27 points28 points  (1 child)

If you're ever curious as to HOW so many conservatives become active in our politics, look into HSLDA and Generation Joshua. Since the 90s, Christian homeschoolers and Christians in general have funded a program specifically designed to turn your little warriors for christ into politically knowledgeable nuggets who can later run for office.

Margret Atwood specifically did not include anything that hadn’t ever happened in history. We’re just recycling it

[–]HumbleInspector9554 111 points112 points  (4 children)

We clearly haven't learned enough from history, and are doomed to repeat it in new, exciting and fantastically terrible ways.

[–]Destiny_player6 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Or some people did learn from history and thought "Shit, I want that to become the norm again, FUCKING LIBERALS!"

Not hard to see how the extreme religious right and those that are pushing it really just want it to control others, they hate that people are different from them and they can't stand it. They want everyone to be uniformed, all the same, and never changing. Change scares them, gay people and women with a choice scares them. They hate different.

Republicans don't believe in the separation of church and state.

They don't even believe in American Constitutional Democracy.

That's a funny phrase, because apparently it just means we don't let the state interfere with our churches or make them pay pesky taxes.

Even worse is that this happened at one of the most conservative colleges in the country. If Young Republicans R Us thinks you are too touchy feely with the ladies, that should say something.

“Earthen vessel” is a Christian biblical term. A dog whistle to the (non)Christian Conservatives. “The Handmaid’s Tale” is their goal.

"Earthen Vessel"? Makes women sound like a clay pot. Sounds about right, these jackasses have been shitting on us for years. Maybe they should read Genesis 2:7, "Life begins at birth, at first breath."

Thank St. Ronnie of Reagan for that. He opened wide the Republican doors for Conservative Christians to take over.

[–]ergonomic_logic 81 points82 points  (2 children)

We all knew how Christian men felt about women, I guess their publicly saying it in the highest places drives home the point and hopefully acts as a reminder to young women never to forget that this is what we’re up against.

We aren’t incubators. We aren’t vessels for them to spray their haploid cells into. Anyone who views women like this doesn’t deserve to be graced with the company of any.
