Janis Lane, a woman and the president of the Central Mississippi Tea Party, stated that women shouldn't be allowed to cast a ballot this election because they are just too emotionally unstable.
“Our country might have been better off if it was still just men voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They are diabolical in how they can skewer a person. I do not see that in men. The whole time I worked, I’d much rather have a male boss than a female boss. Double-minded, you never can trust them.”
Our community members are fired up about Lane's stance:
Leen61: "Speak for yourself, lady! I'm tired of women like this who are an insult to my gender. "There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They are diabolical in how than can skewer a person. " Wow....is she a self-loathing woman?"
letsliveinpeace: "Janis, Janis.... you're living in a cage if you really believe that, get out of Mississippi and travel, meet other people you're standing in one place too long. Also by getting out meeting other people you will learn a lot from other women around the country. They will teach you something about voting, and your right to vote."
Vierotchka: "It seems that she is referring uniquely to her type of women, the Tea Party women."
jeffissleeping: "So....conversely, men are not mean or hateful. nice argument ya got there..."
