I've bolded the bit to which I'm responding.

The irony here is... and I'm not disagreeing with you entirely... is that while "white women" might be a subset of an oppressed group, there's large chunk of white women who have (quite happily!) tethered themselves to men... to Trump... to the "oppressors" ... for lack of a better term. I don't know how else we can explain Collins' vote and/or the continued support for these morons by women of all shades ... except to suggest that they must be feeling a little ... better you than me!

I cannot even imagine what a non-white woman has been thinking watching this because because they have been dealing with this and fighting forever.

It would be an absolute insult to millions who have already been fighting for their rights to insinuate that a Civil War is now starting simply because white women are affected.

I hate when the quote feature doesn't work right... so hit and miss.

To this... WheatToast

I happen to think Trump's probable conspiracy with Russia to steal the election takes priority over all the other crimes, because democracy as we know it may be ending as a result. That feels more urgent to me right now than anything else, and I did not like the immediate implication(s) that I was being callous and cold and possibly "too white" toward the issue of immigrant babies held in cages without their parents. That was a fucking stretch, considering.

I totally agree. Whatever the fuck is going on in DC ... with Trump and his monkeys ... reaches into every crack and crevice of everyone's life. Addressing oppression, bigotry, inequality, etc... are of paramount importance but we'll hardly be able to address those if our economy... our security ... our cohesion as a nation ... etc... etc... are in the friggin' toilet. Figuratively speaking ... how can one bring peace and solidarity to members of a household when the house is literally collapsing all around them?

I initially wasn't going to respond to this because having to explain once again in my life that no where did I say "all" is exhausting, as I already have to do this when I am confronted with not "all" men. (Because clearly I am not smart or aware enough to recognize that not everyone gets lumped into one category because of a few.) <insert eyeroll> But I am responding because I don't appreciate your assumption.

And so, after what I wrote in this thread, and have written in other political threads we both are involved in, you come here and infer that I am unaware that white women like Susan Collins and her ilk exist. Actually you don't infer, you tell me I am unaware by pointing out to me that "there's large chunk of white women who have (quite happily!) tethered themselves to men... to Trump... to the "oppressors" ... for lack of a better term" as if I had no idea. It's insulting.

I am glad there are other people who read what I wrote and got it.

I feel like the OP was saying that the Judiciary was the last branch of government with some integrity and that the confirmation of Kavanaugh means that branch has joined the other two in having been taken over by the forces of evil, and that the fall of the judiciary is what marks our descent into war.

This was interpreted as the OP having said that the official addition of white women to oppressed classes marks our descent into war, and that is insulting because the war has been going on for centuries and white women just didn't know or care.

This makes sense if "the fall of the judiciary" and "the recent addition of white women to the oppressed class" are interchangeable statements, and that therefore, by stating the former the OP also implies the latter.

I have seen this a lot on twitter, but the rhetoric there is more "welcome to the struggle, here's a syllabus"

We have twelve years to save the planet. I am going to lecture the white women about their tardiness in year 13.

I read that Evangelical women in Texas are polling more strongly Democrat than in the past and that they could make the difference in the Senate race there.

I also saw an article on Trump voters who had been Obama voters but are coming back to vote for Democrats this election. Trump won on women rust belt voters who had flipped parties -- had been Obama voters -- and because African Americans in cities like Milwaukee didn't come out for Hillary. The Midterms aren't a Presidential election, and every election is different. But it is undeniable that these are gains.

Whoa! lol

There was no assumption in my head or heart when I responded to your post. No assumption regarding all... or some... or many... not so much as f'ing baker's dozen. I was, in fact, agreeing with you and adding a wee caveat to the subset that you highlighted … white women.

Perhaps, in future, you might ask the author of the post clarify before assuming that they've assumed.

Whoa

A couple of quick preface points...

1. This is not intended to hijack the thread from the OP's original intent or topic of the thread.

2. The assertion that there are (white) women still loyal to Trump even after the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing and confirmation isn't one that just popped into my head. I heard it several days ago on MSNBC and it made me go WTF??

I just Googled and found a most interesting opinion piece on the subject. I've not read the whole thing (at work) but one sentence did jump out at me that might better explain the point I was trying to make in a previous post. The paragraph begins with...

"We’re talking about white women. The same 53 percent who put their racial privilege ahead of their second-class gender..."

If you'd like to check out the whole thing...

White Women, Come Get Your People
They will defend their privilege to the death.

That's a given, that white women are heavily Republican. Not news. The Dems may be making inroads. But no shit, Sherlock. White college educated women have been the backbone of the Republican party since Eisenhower probably. Gender issues don't seem to affect their votes, unless it's abortion, and those who care deeply about that tend to be Republicans.

I am not seeing wokeness from Evangelical women.

My aunt, who was florist and bridesmaid at my wedding, has posted a Dr. Ford meme saying "are you sure it wasn't Bill Clinton who raped you?" and a Bill/Chelsea meme with Bill saying "did i rape the ugly one?" and Chelsea saying "Dad, that's mom."

This is where I read it. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/09/u...als-women.html

My Evangelical relatives have posted some nasty memes, too. One early one basically called Dr. Ford a crybaby, so when Kavanaugh sniveled through his second hearing, I made a big point of mentioning his entitled whining.

Seriously, for Obama and Clinton, if you liked them, you can thank people of color.

Me neither. I'm in Texas and I'm not seeing/hearing a lot of … I'm done with Trump!!

I'm actually okay with that (to some degree) so long as their voting follows this new inner voice.

Did anyone watch the msnbc special last night on the vote? Most of the country is totally unaware and doesn't much care about Russia, the "me to" movement or that trump lies constantly...people in u.s are very short-sighted and take freedom for granted. No amount of shaming or warning will really move them until they "feel" it personally(on some level)..i think those of us who are woke, live in a bubble..which will probably burst at some point..we as liberals are almost as clueless as the conservatives..so pulling out your fur when it comes to trump won't get you anything or anywhere. I think (at some point) it's prudent to personally prepare for the consequences we are obviously in no mood to consider.
