Because we allow these politicans to speak their sexism freely, how can the future women of America feel comfortable to take stand for our views, be taken seriously, and not feel afraid to come out as a rape victim? Here are just a few of many current political workers who prove my point about the current sexism problem in our century.

If it's not a life it shouldn't matter, if it doesn't harm a woman then she shouldn't care, and don't we want more transparency and education in the medical profession anyway?"

Lawrence Lockman

"If a woman has the right to an abortion, why shouldn't a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist's pursuit of sexual freedom doesn't (usually) result in anyone's death."

Jeb Bush

Rep. Missouri Todd Akin

Texas Gubernatorial contender Clayton Williams

Utah State Rep. Brian Green

Presidental Candidate Donald Trump

"Women have one of the great acts of all time. the smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers."
"If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?
