Coulter Wants Women’s Suffrage Repealed

The circus side show known as Ann Coulter has a new book to promote, so she’s doing her usual schtick of saying the most outrageous things she can think of. In a radio interview, she reiterated her previously stated belief that women should not be allowed to vote. Seriously.

McInnes, also brought up women voters, prompting Coulter to share her position that “women should not have the right to vote.” She continued that while women should not vote, “We can still write books! We can run for office.”

“You just can’t vote,” McInnes reiterated.

This is not the first time Coulter voiced her support for female disenfranchisement. In 2007, Coulter said that “If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat [sic] president.” Coulter described this as a “pipe dream” and a “personal fantasy” of hers that women, especially the single women who “are voting so stupidly,” will finally be silenced.

I can almost picture, though I don’t want to, Vox Day and Jesse Lee Peterson furiously fondling themselves at this. “See, we have a woman who agrees with us, so we can’t possibly be sexist for saying women shouldn’t be allowed to vote.” Wrong. You damn sure are sexist.

    If they shouldn’t be voting, surely they shouldn’t be writing books either?

    a “personal fantasy” of hers that women, especially the single women who “are voting so stupidly,” will finally be silenced.

    And, next, those black people who are voting so stupidly will be silenced and then the poor whites who are voting so stupidly will be silenced and then we’ll have Republican paradise where only rich white males can vote.

    Coulter:

    Right. A person who can’t vote for themselves, running for office!

    I think, the best explanation for this massive, blatant contradiction, is that she is a gloating show off, grossly proud of the fact that there is no contradiction so absurd her fans will not gobble it right up.

    Then she calls it a “pipe dream” so she can gloat about the fact that her garbage is far more effective hallucinogen than any opiate.

    If only we could stop white men over fifty from voting, then we wouldn’t have to have any more Republicans in office. Too many of older white men are clueless about modern American life as it presents itself to women, persons of color, the poor and young people. Hell, I’ll give up my right to vote as a white man over fifty, I’ll just comment on blogs.

    Has anyone asked Coulter if she votes?

  • caseloweraz

    It seems to me that if women (in Coulter’s view) aren’t qualified to vote, they also are not qualified to influence the way others vote. Hence, Coulter should stop writing books, give up her columns, and promise not to make any appearances at CPAC or any other political event.

    It is my information that Coulter’s original birth certificate identified her as a male. I would also point out that Coulter has bad mouthed Caitlyn Jenner, claiming that she has 1 X and 1 Y chromosome and is therefore a male, regardless of the modifications made by her surgeon. Well, given the claims about her original birth certificate, Coulter should be challenged to provide a cheek swab for DNA testing to see if she also has an X and a Y chromosome; people in glass houses should be cautious about throwing rocks.

    Here’s a putdown of Coulter from Conan O’Brian.

    Of course, you don’t know. My teen years were lived in the vicinity of Coulter’s hometown, close to her era. The photos of her from New Canaan High School look like a teenage girl, dressed like a typical preppy teenage girl of that area and era. When did she allegedly undergo this gender reassignment? At birth? It’s ridiculous to think these rumors are anything but garbage.

    You can criticize and ridicule this ridiculous woman without going down this dishonest road, once again.

  • Bruce

    It’s fortunate that representation is proportional to the number of persons, and not to the number of registered voters. Otherwise, I’d be tempted to let Red states vote to disenfranchise as many voters as possible (not really, of course). If they did, then eventually Texas would have only 3 electoral votes, like Alaska. Then there’d never be another Republican President. Just following up on her logic.

    Of course, in reality, that would mess up the senate, as well as being inhuman.

    Misgendering a person is just plain lousy — and it’s lousy in a way that usually carries very nasty extraneous baggage. There are a hundred legitimate criticisms of Ann Coulter, but falling back on “ewww, actually a MAN” says more about the speaker’s transphobia than it does about Coulter.

    Look, colnago, why don’t you just go back to your usual stupidities like pretending Hitler’s name was something else and stop trying to be witty. You’re only half-witty with your failed attempts at transphobia. Also just because Conan O’Brian made a transphobic slur doesn’t mean you can get away with your transphobia.

    Re Dr. X @ #24

    It is my information that the gender reassignment surgery on Coulter was performed quite soon after birth, which is usually what happens, and that she was subsequently issued a new birth certificate indicating female.

    Re pockernerd @ #27

    You’re just digging your hole deeper. Gender is a hell of a lot more complicated than XX or XY.

    I absolutely agree. Coulter is the one who raised the issue; if it applies to Caitlyn Jenner, it also applies to Ann Coulter.

    Generally I agree; however, Coulter is the one who brought up the subject so she has no complaints when she is the target.

    Re Al Dente @ #29

    I don’t consider O’Brian’s comment to be in any way, shape, form, or regard a slur. Coulter asked for it by her comments about Jenner and she richly deserved his observation.

    No, transphobia is always shitty, no matter who does it. I realize asking you not to be a jerk is like asking an infant not to scream and soil himself, but it’s wrong when “their side” does it and worse when “our side” does it — Ann Coulter has made a career out of smug xenophobia, but we really should know better.

    This is not the first time we have ridden this merry go round. You have never given any reason to believe this claim is more plausible than the notion that Barack Obama was born in Kenya as the secret love child of Malcom X and Troodon formosus.

    Even if it was more plausible, that would still be no justification for you to use it to attack her – an insult which only work by implying that being a trans person is somehow worse than the truth about Ann Coulter – which is that she is a hate filled white supremacist liar for money and fame. That is a truly vile thing imply, but you imply it every time you bring up your transantagonistic garbage.

  • whheydt

    Re: colnago80 @ #31…

    So…the only extant birth certificate identifies her as female, which means that the contention that she is transgender cannot be documented that way.

    Put it another way…you got nothin’.

    @colnago80 – Even a worthless piece of Catholic shit like dukedog/Egnor at least says his hurtful things honestly. You say them like a coward, standing behind a banner of “hey, just asking questions?”

    So, instead of discussion why Coulter behaves in such an awful way, or just dismissing her as an awful person, we’re here watching colnago flash his ass in public. What a fucking waste of time all this is.

    Hey, *all* of you assholes: the tide has turned. No one really cares about what idiot Xtians, idiot male chauvinists, or even puffed-up “Skeptical Atheist” *men* have to fucking say, about pretty much fucking *anything*. So, please continue your self-congratulatory circle-jerk. :)

  • Alverant

    Anna, I appreciate your statement, but since this thread is about elections and voting yes, many people do what others say. Specifically politicians care to know what people say when they vote and if someone can get it so more votes are in line with what they say, it’s important.

  • colnago80

    Re Anna Elizabeth @ #39

    Coulter behaves the way she does because it is lucrative for her to do so. As I have noted in the past on this blog, one of her former gentleman friends has said that she doesn’t believe 90% of the crap that comes out of her mouth or her word processor. IMHO, if she could make more loot sliming conservatives, she would do so.

  • whheydt

    So…stick to critiquing what she says and don’t sling mud about what you think she is. The former, if done reasonably well, will have people thinking better of you. The latter will destroy any credibility you might have acquired.

    Colnago, even the cheek swab wouldn’t prove that she was ever assigned male as a gender. Have you never heard of androgen insensitivity?

If you don’t like that label, then stop being a transphobic asshole.

    You could start this way: “Calling Ann Coulter a transsexual is insulting because…” and just go from there.

    Re Rowanvet-tech @ #44

    Colnago, even the cheek swab wouldn’t prove that she was ever assigned male as a gender.

    I agree. As I understand it, her gender was uncertain at birth because of the appearance of her genital region and she was identified as male.

    By the way, it is my understanding that a positive test for a Y chromosome is considered as sufficient to exclude a someone from participating in female events at the Olympic Games.
