amen: the “war on women” is not fiction or a cynical ploy by Democrats to increase female turnout — it is a real thing fueled by (actual) cynicism by GOP white male candidates terrified of the prospect of women holding power and in control of their own bodies. A GOP perfectly okay with wage discrimination, hiring discrimination, discrimination against the LGBT community, paternalism in business and politics, etc. Voting for a Republican is voting for all of those things (and many other odious policies, ranging from climate change denialism — probably the most important issue of our generation — to militarism and rampant homophobia).
