War on Women?  MALARKY! by Starlow-FTW War on Women?  MALARKY! by Starlow-FTW
Election day is tomorrow for when we decide who the next president of the United States will be. This stamp is basically here because this whole "war on women" attempt by Obama to demonize Romney is just crap.

B-but, Romney wants to take away my birth control!

Okay, that's not even true. That was actually a myth created by the Obama administration and propagated by people like Sandra Fluke and Nancy Pelosi. Romney can't ban birth control because of a 50 year old supreme court decision ruling that birth control is protected by the constitution. Now, the only issue is whether or not you want your neighbor to pay for it. That's what Obama wants. That evil rich, white business man owes you women, and so should pay for your birth control, and those evil religious people do as well. If people can be forced to pay for women's birth control, then fine. Everyone should be forced to pay for the bullets in my gun. Where's my fair share?

Romney hates abortion!

Again, I see this a lot. Now, the supreme court just ruled that abortion is not UNconstitutional. However, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have already stated they disapprove of abortion except in the cases of rape or danger to the mother. So there's no ban on abortion even being talked about by them. Having said that, Obama is alright with abortion. In fact, as a Senator, he approved of denying babies who were born after a failed abortion any medical care, and prosecuting doctors who dared try to help them. Yeah. Scary. That's real infanticide, American style.

Romney hates women. I bet he has three wives!

And all Muslims are terrorists and all Catholics molest children, and all atheists are communists. This generalization won't get us anywhere. Romney is a mormon. Not a polygamist. They're not all polygamists, you see.

Yeah, but Starlow-FTW, he hates income equality!

Women in the white house are payed 20% less than their male counterparts under Obama. Obama can dish out the income inequality but can't take it. Romney's got it. He realizes that a strong economy is what will help the plight of women the most.

Starlow-FTW, how can I show my support for Romney's beliefs in equality and liberty?

By voting for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan tomorrow, and making sure no woman falls for Obama's deceit any longer. Obama plays gender warfare (along with race warfare and class warfare). He thinks women voters are stupid. He thinks all they care about is contraceptives and abortion, and he can win all of you women over with kind, patronizing words about how Republicans want to take away something not in danger of being taken away, and how they want to ban that which can't be banned. No more lies, Mr. President. It's time you join the other 23 million Americans in the unemployment line!

Romney/Ryan 2012. Restore America.

nothing you have stated here has to do with 
the war on women
from what i understand
the "war on women" primarily refers to shaming, discrimination, assault and violence
which is prevalent in America and most of the world
and it doesnt have as much to due with the election of any particular president
but people making a cultural change

Not necessarily- the war on women rhetoric is primarily (and sadly) political and generally deals with obsessions with abortions, birth control, and income inequality.  I'm not here saying anything revolutionary, just that politicians lie and extort people to perpetuate their power.  I would have thought everybody knew that already, though.

i dont even listen to politicians
because they are all corrupt, self serving bastards
though you dont seem to have a problem with promoting them

presidents shouldnt be elected based on people nit-picking the issues one party may claim to support
its about the big picture
because real balance is achieved when people can learn to live with the differences and varying opinions rather than trying to force their values on others

this is the kind of thing i mean by "the war on women"
news.yahoo.com/pakistan-woman-…
its about women that have to live as property under a man's thumb
and suffer greatly for trying to escape that grip
try thinking outside the simple political box

I think you're missing the point of this- it's all about the "simple political box".  However, outside of that box is where the feminists and statists of the United States dare not enter, and that's the real war on women that occurs all over the world, just like what you showed me right there.  That is the denial of rights that women in our world face; free birth control and abortions don't rank in the top 1000, but to politicians in this nation who profit off the war on women rhetoric, it's all that matters to them.

well there are plenty of women who actually think about the real war
and making stamps like this really doesnt help anyone
and you seem to realize that it actually exists but choose to send out a message saying the opposite?
as opposed to the more useful statement such as the fact that its just badly defined in America

its not like this comes off as anti-politician considering it basically reads and ends like an advertisement

If a woman does not serve the leftist, feminist agenda, or if a racial minority does not serve the leftist racial agenda, they're traitors to their own kind.  The thing about that, though, is that if liberals are already pointing to a person's "kind" as a box to which a person 'ought to adhere, that's already racism or sexism.  It's a way to tell blacks or women to keep to their own kind or else.

Yes and no.

I don't believe there is a war on Women no. I don't think Right-wing -members hate women or are out to get them I do believe however that they are ignorant of many women issues and still have some outdated ideas on women's rights.

Are liberal's never sexist? No they can also be sexist. no party is perfect but it's Republicans who make statements like:
''We can't have Hillary as a president because if a woman is in charge other countries won't take us serious!''
and
It's republicans who dont want birth control to be covered because they don't want to pay for women having sex even trough I have YET to see Republicans openly fight against the fact that viagra is covered.
When Birth control has more medical reasons then viagra. I for example use the pill due to my hormonal inbalance.

Also Mitt Romney in the past has suggested women should not take part in poltical meetings or speak in church. He also said he supports the idea of cutting all funding to Planned-Parenthood because he doesn't want to pay for abortions even trough people and Planned Parenthood have told him again and again that the 
 federal assistance DO not go to pay for women's abortions they go to breast cancer screening and treatment for cervical cancer ect.

Paul Ryan also wants to CUT federal assistance to Planned Parenthood and HE knows where the money goes to. He also wants to criminalze certain forms of Birth control.
He is also against vitro fertilization for some reason.  I don't think that's sexist but I do understand how lesbians and women who can't have children might be offended.

I'm convinced that liberals are the ones making a war on women- a woman that doesn't tow the party line is ostracized as a sell-out, which isn't really that different than their views on race, I suppose.  Of course, you will find Republicans that have ridiculous beliefs about groups of people, like their constant obsession with birth control.  I think it says more about the government as a whole than each party, though.  To be truthful, I don't think there's any difference anymore between the two main parties.

See, I still think the whole birth control thing was just a distraction.  Here are some other facts:  female unemployment is higher than male unemployment, following the same pattern that black unemployment is higher than white unemployment.  That pattern is compounded as the economy dips and a recession occurs.  What that basically means is that, as the economy gets worse and doesn't improve, women are hurt more.  Remember Mitt Romney's "binders full of women" comment that everyone thought was so funny?  His main point was that, by improving the economy, you help women, which is ultimately true. 
If you want to know another right that women have genuinely lost, it's the right to privacy.  The NSA and TSA violate the privacy of women on a daily basis, whether it's groping little girls at the airport or prying into women's sex lives (saw that one on a headline- creepy stuff).  That's a right that men and women both have, the fourth amendment.  However, I have no doubt that these government agencies have some perverts in them who focus on women just a bit more.

Regarding planned parenthood, something needs to be done about it.  Planned parenthood actually doesn't do all that much.  A lot of its federal funding goes to its president and management, who make millions of dollars a year.  The thing with PP is that it isn't obligated to do anything.  The money it receives goes into a pool, where it can then spend the money at will on anything it wants.  A lot of people say that PP spends it on mammograms or cancer treatment or what have you, but PP actually doesn't do any of that.  Other places do that, PP basically takes the credit.  Maybe if their spending habits were made transparent to the public each year (an audit, basically), a lot of problems would be solved and we would know for sure.  If you receive public funds, you should undergo public scrutiny.  Simple as that.

Basically, the main point is that the government has become the enemy of all people, including, but not limited to, women.  If our government stuck to the constitution, then maybe we wouldn't be talking about all these rights being violated.  I don't think birth control is a right (the ability to purchase it, though, is), nor is abortion.  As long as we focus on these things as rights while everyone loses their real rights, things won't get better.  Government doesn't give people rights- rights are God given (or for the atheists out there, inherent to humanity), so it's a matter of perspective, IMO.

I don't see how the liberals have a war on woman consider American Liberals have programs such as helping teenage mothers, supporting sex education, public funding to women shelter groups, feminist education ect.
I aslo think it's wrong to judge people on being perverts for their poltical beliefs then again in my experience I have been told to get raped,  and 'you are only good for making babies you know'' by several right-wing believers on this site because I didn't agree with their belief on slut-shaming and sex educating so it could be that influence.

(In my country Right-wing would be considered left-wing to American standards. )

Once again Birth control pill  is also used for medical reasons  other then not having babies. My doctor gave me birth control pills due to my hormonal problems It be pointless for me to use otherwise since Im gay. :p
and once again why must birth control be a issue consider rights but nobody quistions the fact that Viarge is still covered.
You are a bit wrong trough in the USA now there are more women working then men, However the difference is that women make less and earn less then men that and there is a of women who work without a college degree compared to men who  morel likely have a degree in the section they are working in causing female workers not to be able to work further in their status. 

Either way I don't think we can convince each other so I leave it at that. I do hope you will research the comments I have you Mitt made but thats up to you.

I also wish for you to provide me a sourc you have on Planned Parenhood from a none-biased site that would be great.
Also if it's true that  its not  hard to see how Planned Parenthood spends his money doesn't that mean that both men also made false claims on Planned Parenthood? Just wondering that.

It's because they think that women can be bought or sold while real rights are taken away.  Liberals must think pretty poorly of womens' intelligence if they think women only care about birth control and not, you know, being groped at the airport by government officials.  Of course, everything I say relies on the premise that women are inherently equal to men. 

Oh dear, see, I just realized you are not from the US.  You have my apologies.  Let me explain what the NSA is.  The NSA is a portion of the government whose job it is to basically spy on Americans (oh, and people elsewhere in the world, such as Europe and South America, notable examples being Spain and Brazil).  NSA stands for National Security Agency.  They read people's emails, look through their text messages, and even turn on people's webcams without them knowing.  Edward Snowden got his fame when he exposed what the NSA was doing, which is a violation of the constitution's fourth amendment that guarantees Americans the right to not be subject to an illegal search or seizure, summed up as the right to privacy.  The TSA is a government agency that is in the airports- they search people and make them go through scanners which show them naked on the other side.  They can also subject anyone to a search at their discretion.  TSA in particular is home to a lot of perverts.  While Obama goes on about birth control, TSA agents are known to pat down little girls.  They've also been known to send attractive women through these scanners multiple times and subject them to "special" treatment.  That's along with the typical stealing people's stuff. 
When talking about rights, I don't believe people have the right to be provided with stuff for free.  However, the rights guaranteed to us in our constitution are the rights that we are guaranteed.  It's ironic that those rights are being dismantled.

Now sadly, there are some nasty people in the world who identify as conservative, or right wing, or what have you.  Rest assured, I'm the real deal.  I don't identify as Republican- I'm actually constitutionalist with a bit of libertarian leaning.  I think the Republican party has grown too weak and too liberal.
But let's talk about birth control.  It's not a right.  Viagra isn't a right, either.  The difference, however, is that the government has restrictions on which kinds and how many insurance companies can compete in one state.  Basic capitalist theory dictates that this will limit the choices of the customer, so the result is that insurance companies cover viagra and not birth control.  The answer to the situation is simple: end the government's restriction on insurance companies.  With more competition comes lower costs and more options.  Problem solved.  Our government is filled with radical socialists, however, so they'd never consider it.  It's a prime example of government interference causing more problems than they solved.

Regarding unemployment, the fact remains that a bad economy affects women more.  It's as simple as that.  Obama butchered the economy and wants to shift the blame.  A lot of what you'd hear, especially over there in Europe, will not be as reliable as what you might hope.  I can't cite a source for planned parenthood, unfortunately, as it was a while ago that I read it.  We'll just have to agree to disagree on that one.  That's my fault for losing that.  I lose everything.  I'd lose my hair if it wasn't attached to my head.

While "war" might be a little severe, the fact that the issue was brought up even after it was settled that women should have a choice, is still an assault on our rights as women. And the fact that the women vote is tied between both candidates tells me that republican/conservative women tend to align their votes with their husbands. Not all, however, the rest I would think align with their personal values.

I think people should pay for their own birth control. And should be allowed multiple wives/husbands, so long as all people involved are consensual.

As for abortion.. that's touchier. Very, very situational and dependent on how far along in pregnancy you are.

You know, I don't know how polygamy would work. If some states would be willing to legalize it, they should be able to. I wonder if it'd make kind of a mess though. Hopefully not.

Well, I don't believe life begins at conception. If a woman catches it that early, I don't see a problem with it.

There is a war on women, it's just that Romney isn't the only perpetrator.
MEN shouldn't be sticking their huge noses into a WOMAN'S business. Why are men debating what goes on with a woman's body ANYWAY? That's what makes no sense. Seriously, do I live in the 1800s or some shit? I can't believe something like ABORTION, something that was settles literally DECADES ago, is still an issue.

And yes, liberals make me sick. They want free everything for everyone, but don't want to put in the effort for it.
But conservatives, you people make me ashamed to be the same SPECIES as you. These old-world, outdated, obsolete views of the world and it's function are just ignorant and often times non-nonsensical ravings of a downright lunatic mind.
Long story short, BOTH parties are WRONG to bring up abortion as a modern-day issue affecting America. I however will be voting for O-O-Obama (for several reasons), but also because of one very simple truth:
You sons-of-bitches gave that motherfucker Bush TWO, count 'em, TWO terms and he's the reason we're in this goddamn mess of an economy ANYWAY! I mean, did ya'll forget that eight-year stint of pure SHIT? Really. Come on.

PS: If men could get pregnant, abortion would have been legal at the beginning of fucking time.
