Trump Disinvited For Misogynist Remark By Guy Who’s Made Misogynist Remarks
Erick Erickson, who disinvited Donald Trump for his anti-woman comments, has a history of similar misogyny.
In 2013, Erickson and [Megyn] Kelly locked horns over a comment Erickson made about women being scientifically inferior to men. Citing biology, Erickson argued that women have always played the non-dominant role to men — and that women who break that dynamic by working, or being the family’s primary breadwinner, have a negative impact on their children and their marriage.
“When you look at biology — when you look at the natural world — the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it’s not antithesis, or it’s not competing, it’s a complementary role,” Erickson said during a Fox News panel in May of 2013, adding that having females as the primary breadwinners in a family is “bad for kids and bad for marriage.”
Defending his comments in a post on RedState a few days later, Erickson wrote that “women as primary breadwinners does make raising children harder, increasing the likelihood of harm in the development of children.”
Sorry folks, this is just hard truth. Husbands and wives should play complimentary roles w/ dad as breadwinner. http://t.co/hRPFFvb5cK
