1. It's been this way for the last 30 years at least.

I don't understand it at all, but it isn't going to change.

4. Insecure men cannot accept women who are educated.

Strong, vibrant, successful, or confident.

Besides, educated women speak a language insecure men do not understand. Nor are Dictionaries helpful.

7. We might as well get used to this misogyny .

They are going to hate all the woman in the administration. The women are well education, professionally sound, and willing to speak their truth. These women are the last thing the other side wants to deal with and they think they can take them down with stupid shit like the WSJ Op piece.

Yes, they got everybody's attention. And right now it's hard for these woman to respond. Once the inauguration happens I believe things will shift. I personally so look forward to our women taking on these AHs.

8. The attack on Dr. Biden was just plain stupid as an attempt to denigrate her accomplishments.

Things will only get worse as the right wing gears up to try its best to destroy Kamala Harris. The attacks on her will be far worse because she is a future presidential candidate and an accomplished woman and a person of colorónone of which their rabid hatred can tolerate.

10. it's who they are...

and it's what they do. A huge part of the conglomerate media is responsible for our no-fact-reality. Couldn't have been done without them, especially the cable tv crap. Some people in this country have been raised with Fox playing in the background for their entire life. 5 years old and spouting right-wing talking points. And, as usual, umpteen years later, blame goes to the elected Democrats for how the 1% have made their money work for them. So many people think if the Democrats just do what the Republicans do, all would be well. No shit. Go find some billionaires, and re-write 50 years of legislation.

1. German - weinerschnitzel
2. Italian - ciao
3. French - sacre bleu
4. Canadian - eh.
5. Spanish - I know 2 - cerveza and banios.

14. Just another example of the cultists fear of strong women.

They attack any and all women they believe to be a threat to their dominance. Speaker Pelosi, Representative AOC, Governor Whitmer, Dr. Jill Biden and the list goes on.
Prior to the previous election a grandnephew of mine at 6 years old walked into a room where Hillary was on the television. He exclaimed "That bitch belongs in prison." They are still being raised.

15. "Why does mainstream media let the GOP get away with bullying educated women like this?"

The short answer: Ratings = $$$$$

MSM doesn't necessarily mean real journalism these days. Several appropriate terms for what currently serves as "news" in the present era might be entertainment, reality show, opinions without facts, lies without borders, manipulating the masses.
True journalism is not the majority of the content we see these days.

35. And "going after" Melania's porny past wouldn't garner ratings?

Maybe there's "we're afraid of Trump" problem?

Or perhaps the usual "we're owned by Republicans" problem?

18. We have a voice now directly to the media and advertisers:

Twitter, Facebook. Like them or hate them the owners of accounts on these sites pay attention to those who communicate to them.

Tell the media what you think. Tell their advertisers. Preaching to the choir will not get any results.

Part of my day consists of letting the media know what I think of their coverage and in particular their reporters and opinion talking heads.

Just sayin..

19. For Republicans it's fine for a woman to be a sex object for male entertainment.

But for them to compete with men on their own turf is abhorrent.

They really do live in an earlier age, Republican women included.
To them the sexes are not equal.
Men dominate and women are subservient and anyone who rocks the boat must be put down.

....of all newspapers, printed one her her pictures on the front page under the headline "The Ogle Office".

25. They have to have a target for their base to direct the anger

Hillary is pretty much out of the picture. Dr. Biden is not a polarizing figure, so they will go after her title and her education...both things that resonate that hatred with the base.

She will do until someone else comes along, perhaps someone in the cabinet, perhaps a proposed judge...they will always find someone, usually a woman. The hatred of women is already baked into the equation.

41. This pisses me off!

My daughter is a DOCTOR. A doctor of nursing and a vital member of a team at a major hospital system that implements and monitors patient safety. I presume he would rather have kiddo's filling these roles. How does he think his male MD's became doctors; education! They are running around taking credit for a vaccine that was developed in Germany by EDUCATED Turkish IMMIGRANTS. Yet, they hate education, they hate science, and they hate immigrants. Education is the foundation of all progress. DOCTOR Jill Biden has her doctorate in the most important of all academic disciplines. Damn, I hate republicans. All of them.
