Mormon Feminists are Voting for Obama

Yes, you read that headline correctly!

Mormon feminists exist and they think that Mr. Romnesia, a Mormon himself, is bad for the nation’s future.

According to Reuters:

Aimee Hickman, co-editor of the Mormon feminist magazine Exponent II, said Romney’s remarks in which he said he looked at “binders full of women” while searching for staff as governor of Massachusetts suggested he was comfortable having powerful women around him, even if he put it awkwardly.

Yet when he then described setting up a flexible schedule for a senior aide so that she could go home and make dinner for her family, he was speaking in the church’s paternalistic language that casts women ultimately as mothers, she said.

“The emphasis on them (women) being seen as leaders or them being seen as breadwinners is still really missing from our rhetoric,” Hickman said. Romney’s response put that “on full display,” she added.

The fact that feminist Mormons exist and they are voting for President Obama should be the final nail in the Romney campaign coffin, though the race is still frighteningly close. When the people in your own relatively cultish religion think you’re from Crazytown… perhaps it’s time to take a long, hard look in the mirror.
