I watched a half hour of last night’s Presidential debate. And then I got stabby and had to stop watching. Luckily, the Kardashians were on E!, so I got to calm down and go to bed without screaming.

 

One of the major criticisms of the last debate, despite being “domestic issues” focused, was that there were no questions concerning what could be termed womens’ issue.  Last night, that was rectified. The last question I heard was about addressing the pay gap between men and women doing the same job. Obama answered with his support of the Lily Ledbetter Act. And then Romney let this gem out:

 

From Melinda Henneberger’s WaPo blog She the People:

 

“Now one of the reasons I was able to get so many good women to be part of that team was because of our recruiting effort. But number two, because I recognized that if you’re going to have women in the workforce that sometimes you need to be more flexible. My chief of staff, for instance, had two kids that were still in school.”

He continued, saying that his chief of staff couldn’t work late because she had to be home “making dinner” and “being with them when they get home from school.”

Romney said, “Let’s have a flexible schedule so you can have hours that work for you.”

Do fathers not have to get home and cook dinner? Do they not want to be there for their children when school is out? After all, there are such things as single dads who balance children and work. Mitt Romney has obviously been watching too many episodes of “Leave It To Beaver” on TV Land on the campaign trail. The days of Donna Reed are long over, Mr. Romney.

 

YES! THIS.

My brain stopped working at ” if you’re going to have women in the workforce”. So much so that I missed the entire “binders full of women” comment. On what planet does Gov. Romney live in so that not only are women in the workplace an OPTION, but what seems to be a distasteful one at that? There have ALWAYS been women in the workforce. Going back to hunter/gatherer days, women worked.  In the 1950’s women were in the workforce. Would he prefer that I not worry my pretty little head over the hard topics that come up in the work place? Or that I scare the menz with my amazing ability to have an opinion and be right occasionally?

And how offensive to not just women, but men with families. As Henneberger points out above, men that want to be home for dinner are not the exception to the rule–they are the rule. Mr. Idgie is an amazing dad and husband and could not believe that a person running for POTUS completely negated any non-financial contribution to our family that he makes. Bravo, Gov. Romney. Way to offend not just women with families, but men, too. Is he counting on the non-gendered vote to win? Crackerjack strategy there, buddy.
