Republican Politicians Being Taught How To Talk About Women

More on how Republicans are training male candidates on how to speak about issues regarding women. This is on top of the rape sensitivity training they’ve already been receiving.

Hey guys, great news. According to a tweet posted to the GOP’s official Twitter account — acknowledging the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks’ refusal to move to the back of the bus in Birmingham, Alabama — racism has ended.

These Anti-Hillary Clinton Buttons Were Spotted At A California GOP Convention

New Sensitivity Training Helps GOP Understand That Rape = Bad

It’s been an abysmal few months for women, thanks to the many, many members of the Republican party insisting on allowing comments about rape to pour out of their faceholes.
