Some of the reasons for their objections were intimated in a NY Times in 1912: "...predicted that with suffrage women would make impossible demands, such as, "serving as soldiers and sailors, police patrolmen or firemen...and would serve on juries and elect themselves to executive offices and judgeships." It blamed a lack of masculinity for the failure of men to fight back, warning women would get the vote "if the men are not firm and wise enough and, it may as well be said, masculine enough to prevent them." (see HERE)
Also, given that "The women's suffrage movement was closely tied to abolitionism, with many suffrage activists gaining their first experience as anti-slavery activists" (see HERE), it makes sense that Democrats at that time would be against woman's suffrage since they were also against abolition and later against blacks receiving the right to vote. (see HERE)
Nevertheless, women nationwide were allowed to vote in 1919 (see HERE), and the sexist fear of women by Democrats was somewhat unfounded for 60 years thereafter (see HERE), in part because women voted disproportionately less that men during that time (see HERE), and women tended to vote the same way as men. (see HERE)
However, with the advent of modern "feminism" and "women's liberation" and the Equal Rights Amendment and so forth in the 1970's, each of which were supported by Liberals, women voters began to outnumber men (see HERE), and women have since voted disproportionately for Democrats, regardless of age. (see HERE and HERE)
This "marriage" between seemingly misogynist Democrats and women may seem odd until one recognizes that both favor big government and dependency on the government. (see HERE)
The irony in this is that while liberal "feminists" were fighting for women's liberation and empowerment and equality to men, the Democrat women were voting for greater dependency and reliance on "The Man" (see HERE)
As mentioned in my post on the Politics or Race, "This is instructive because it not only touches on the points made in my articles on Costly Government and Politics of Compassion and the Politics of Victimization, but it also demonstrates a remarkable lack of awareness of the invidious nature of government dependence. "
In short, the liberal elite want power, and they are given that power by women in exchange for submission and support (ibid.)--a recipe for co-dependency and dysfunction, and thus Leftist LUNCs..
More to the point, this "marriage" is all wrapped in the pretense of "looking out for women's best interest" and fighting against the manufactured war on women (see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE), and favoring "women's issue" (which amount to little more than abortion and contraceptive "rights") when in reality the Left continues it's long tradition of despising or think low of women (as most clearly manifest in their self-loathing--see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE, as well as their deplorable mistreatment of Conservative women--see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE, if not also the blind eye they turn to the severe mistreatment of women by Islamist with whom they are in cahoots--see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE), and work to keep women down in order to retain power. (see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE)
In truth, "All issues are women's issues":
If liberals really cared about women,
The unholy "marriage" is also wrapped up in the myth of equality, and ironically tied up in the bow of divisiveness and the fomented battle between the sexes. ()
