Republican Senate candidate poo-poos feminism, wants a ‘home-cooked meal’
Missouri Republican Senate candidate Courtland Sykes has let the public know where he stands on women’s rights: He expects his fiancée to have dinner ready for him every night before the sun goes down.
On Facebook on Tuesday, Sykes posted a statement from September answering whether or not he favors women’s rights. He said he does support women’s rights (only because his fiancée told him to), but bashed today’s feminists for oppressing traditional womanhood, calling them “she-devils” among other things.
“I want to come home to a home cooked dinner at six every night, one that she fixes and ones that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives,” Sykes wrote.
Sykes said he doesn’t buy into radical feminist definitions of modern womanhood, like, you know, modern women being anything they want.
“They made it up to suit their own nasty, snake-filled heads,” he wrote. “(I don’t want my daughters) to become nail-biting, manophobic, hell-bent, feminist, she-devils who shriek from the tops of a thousand tall buildings they think they could have leaped over in a single bound– had men not ‘suppressed’ them. It’s just nuts. It always was.”
Sykes concluded the statement by saying it was good news that “mean-spirited radical” feminists were finished. “Ask Hillary,” he wrote. “Someone should have stood up and faced them off years ago.”
In light of recent questions regarding my views on Women's Rights, attached is my full statement from September 2017.
According to his website, Sykes’ three main running platforms are to restore honor in politics, support the freedom caucus, and to fulfill Trump’s America first agenda. Sounds like he’s made the most progress on that last point.
