Repeal and Replace

Scott Walker, man of courage:

On Thursday, with little fanfare, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker signed a bill repealing the state’s 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act, which allowed victims of workplace discrimination to seek damages in state courts. In doing so, he demonstrated that our political battles over women’s rights aren’t just about sex and reproduction—they extend to every aspect of women’s lives.

One of the backers of the repeal made it clear as to why women don’t deserve equal pay:

Repealing the law was a no-brainer for state Sen. Glenn Grothman (R), who led the effort because of his belief that pay discrimination is a myth driven by liberal women’s groups. Ignoring multiple studies showing that the pay gap exists, Grothman blamed females for prioritizing childrearing and homemaking instead of money, saying, “Money is more important for men.”

So you womenfolk don’t worry your pretty little heads about things like money and work and stuff. God Above has ordained that men are the true providers for home, family, and all that is holy, and sensible and responsible women realize this.

The June recall election can’t come soon enough for the people of Wisconsin.
