Support All Women (Even Conservatives)

Are conservative women being forced into hiding online? Elisha Krauss and Kelly Maher review some recent dust ups (Taking Cara Babies: we love you) and break down some ways we can ALL come together and ACTUALLY show support for all women—no matter what their political background.

    Why stop there? We could even maybe support all men…

    You know what? Maybe we could go back to that old and positively antiquated Judeo-Christian idea that all human beings should be treated with a certain degree of …

    … nah, that’ll never fly.

    Look man there wasn’t gonna be a perfect title for the episode. As you’ll hear, there’s fighting within the mommy community on Instagram (and we’re lowkey a little sick of being told we’re “pregnant people” etc.) — so this is an episode to talk about specific issues amongst women. You fellas seem to be getting along just fine IMHO.

    :) I’m not criticizing you. I was just making a sarcastic comment about the culture at large. The taking cara babies thing is absolutely ridiculous… And part of a big problem.

    As for fellas, though… We’ll do fine, yes, but I have 2 boys and they now have a lot of things being deliberately stacked against them. That’s not the subject of your podcast, of course, but I think it’s all related.

    Oh it DEFINITELY is all related—we’ve talked a lot about the challenges of raising boys in this insane culture (lots of us are “boy moms”) on other episodes too but that’s a good point!

    We’re living through a Cold Civil War or Cold War Fracturing within our own country.

    I think women, especially young women, who don’t work in a profession where conservatism is instant death need to get tougher as Dennis Miller would say about becoming a young stand-up comedian, “You have to develop some rhino skin.”

    Great episode and a must listen. We’ve seen the warnings of a growing culture of political hostility towards conservative women. It’s unbelievably helpful to know there’s more who run against the hysteria and use their platform like the LadyBrains. I wish more women (and men) would stand boldly in confidence against partisan shackles of liberal ideology. I hope more women would understand conservatives aren’t defined solely by their political ideology, nor are the cartoonish, closed-minded, bigoted, or brainwashed housewife characters many in Hollywood and the media like to portray us. Thank you for a great conversation!
