Twice in recent weeks, high-ranking GOP party members in Michigan have made blatantly sexist statements towards professional women. First, Republican State Representative Rick Jones of Grand Ledge compared an important female public relations professional to a “hooker.” Then, just this week, former Michigan Republican Party (MRP) Executive Director Greg McNeilly called Democrat Senate Leader Gretchen Whitmer a “government hooker.”
I don’t know either of these two men (nor do I ever want to), but they have literally leapt backwards from the 21st century and landed in the Middle Ages. Are these two so insecure in their manhood that they have resort to using demeaning terms to describe women?
Both men should offer up sincere apologies and pronto. In my opinion, both should immediately step down from any political party role whatsoever and move back into their caves – it’s winter, they are supposed to be hibernating. In Rep. Jones’ case, hopefully the voters of his legislative district will finally have tired of his diarrhea of the mouth. I don’t know where these two formed these closed-minded opinions, but their nasty comments are the equivalent of political canker sores. Pathetic and disrespectful rhetoric towards all women (political or not) needs to stop… and right now!
