A Republican Senate candidate in Missouri has some explaining to do after his official Facebook candidate page suddenly transformed into an anti-feminist rant platform, with the wannabe lawmaker complaining about feminists and their “nasty, snake-filled heads.”
Courtland Sykes did not hesitate to share comments he made about women’s rights in September 17, but the post has since gone viral and sparked a slew of flabbergasted responses.
“Well – Chanel, my fiancée, has given me orders to favor [women’s rights], so I’d better. But Chanel knows my obedience comes with a small price that she loves to pay anyway: I want to come home to a home cooked dinner at six every night, one that she fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives – think Norman Rockwell here and Gloria Steinem be damned,” he wrote.
“I don’t buy into radical feminism’s crazed definition of modern womanhood and I never did,” Sykes continued. “They don’t own that definition – and never did. They made it up to suit their own nasty, snake-filled heads. Modern women can BE anything they want, including traditional women – as millions are and millions are fast becoming.”
The manifesto goes on to take shots at Hillary Clinton, “drugstore academics” who play “gender-bending word games,” “nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils,” and “mean-spirited radical feminists.”
Sykes is one of a crowded field of candidates running to unseat Claire McCaskill (D-MO) as she attempts to obtain a third term in Congress. Her approval rating plunged by 10 points in the last year and is currently sitting at 41 percent according to a recent Morning Consult poll, marking dangerous waters for her in a state that Trump carried in 2016.
