Concerned Women For [Attacking Gays' & Bachelors' Manhoods]

by Jeremy Hooper

When their figureheads are not dropping references to "Hitler Youth," the Concerned Women For America spend their time at #CPAC10 selling bumper stickers like this one:

201002191337-1
(H/t: @kellywcobb)

It's actually weird that CWA would be so into "real" boys, since it's the ultimate fake boy, Pinocchio, who seems to be their organizational mascot!

Your thoughts

More accurately, it should say:

"Straight Men and Closet Cases Sometimes Marry, Divorce, and Re-Marry Women"

Hmm. If I end up marrying my girlfriend, then...what does that make me, in terms of my femininity? Because, technically, by their logic...that makes me a real man, no?

The principals of the CWA below seem to have their heads up their butts:


Beverly LaHaye, Founder and Chairman, wife and co-author with Tim LaHaye,[46] a best-selling author
Wendy Wright, President, a frequent guest on national and international media discussing moral, social and political issues[46]
Lee LaHaye, Chief Financial Officer
Matt Barber, Director of Cultural and Social Policy[47]
Martha W. Kleder, writer and policy analyst

I can see how this can be offensive to some, but to me it's just simply pathetic.

I should note that the reason this even came to my attention is because a CPAC attendee on Twitter (@kellywcobb) tweeted it along with text "Sorry, but not helpful." So clearly CWA is out-of-touch with some (if not most) of the CPACers.

Oh yea, Dale: I'd def. put it more in the sad/funny-but-not-haha/*facepalm* category.

Oh, the poor things.

Real Men are a Stereotype

Posted by: SammySeattle | Feb 19, 2010 2:44:37 PM

Very true Aya, I need to correct this to:

"Straight Men, Gay Women and Closet Cases Sometimes Marry, Divorce, and Re-Marry Women"

Posted by: Dick Mills | Feb 19, 2010 3:25:53 PM

Real Men don't worry about what makes a man a Real Man. :-P

Posted by: Jarred | Feb 19, 2010 4:29:20 PM

HAHAHA! From my straight brother: By their definition, real men wouldn't allow their organization to exist.
