<p>Reading this article in the NY Times about Trump congratulating Roseanne on her show coming back. I feel like this sentence is pretty misleading. To say Trump has never supported gay marriage is to suggest that he specifically opposes it, despite the fact that he has said he doesn’t really care about it or mind it. I think it’s pretty obvious that Trump doesn’t give a shit about gay marriage and anything he said opposing it was very mild and intended to appease his evangelical backing. Trump easily vacillates from stance to stance depending on what sounds the best to the people he’s talking to. Doesn’t say much for his integrity but it does dismiss a lot of pearl clutching about him being some anti-gay marriage crusader.</p>: Ms. Barr defended the president at several points in the interview, objecting to a suggestion that he opposes many of the views that she and Roseanne Conner have espoused over the years, like support for abortion rights, same-sex marriage and organized labor Mr. Trump used to back abortion rights before running for president as a Republican, but he has never supported same-sex marriage. <p>Reading this article in the NY Times about Trump congratulating Roseanne on her show coming back.

<p><a href="http://mezzoalex.tumblr.com/post/34885160172/conservativewoman-i-was-asked-to-make-this" class="tumblr_blog">mezzoalex</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://conservativewoman.tumblr.com/post/34834537232/i-was-asked-to-make-this-rebloggable-well-you">conservativewoman</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>*I was asked to make this rebloggable…</p> <p>Well, you don’t know me as a person very well because I am Pro-Life, and I believe that Planned Parenthood should be privately funded, not federal funded like every other business in this nation. So I agree with Mitt Romney on his Pro-Life stance, as a woman’s right is whether or not she wishes to engage in sex, not to terminate the human life she created exercising her right. I also agree with him that Planned Parenthood should no longer receive tax dollars, and instead rely on donations and competition in the free market.</p> <p>However, Mitt Romney cannot ban abortion by himself. He does have the power to appoint a Supreme Court Justice, but there is an entire system called “checks and balances” in the government. The President is not a dictator, no matter how much President Obama wishes it were. He doesn’t have almighty power; that’s why we have the House of Representatives and the Senate as well as the Supreme Court. If Mitt Romney led a campaign to end abortion, I’d be all for it. But he’d have a whole lot of work in front of him to achieve that, and it’s glaringly clear that the economy and getting people back to work is Romney and Ryan’s #1 priority along with foreign policy to keep America safe.</p> <p>Furthermore, America’s economy is on the brink of collapse. A broken economy affects every single, solitary American, not just women or immigrants or gays. I know there are women out there who want abortion. I know there are gays out there who want marriage. I know there are immigrants out there who want to become citizens. But there are the majority in this country that include men, women, straights, gays, legal immigrants, blacks, whites, Hispanics, people of every walk of life who want a better life. If they cannot get jobs, if they cannot provide for themselves, the other social issues matter very little.</p> <p>There was a gay man who once said that he would love to be able to get married. (For the record, I am pro-gay civil unions.) But he would rather have a job to go to to provide a home and a hearth for his partner and their children rather than living on the street with nothing but a ring on his finger.</p> <p>On the subject of Planned Parenthood, they will be fine in the private market, just like Sesame Street. If people want it around, they will keep it around. That’s how businesses work. But taxpayers should not be responsible for funding it, especially as doing so violates religious freedoms from Catholics, Christians, Jews, etc. who don’t support abortion. (Not to mention, many religions disapprove of contraception considering sex should be kept within marriage where the two people should be prepared for children anyway.) Mitt Romney does not want to ban Planned Parenthood; he just doesn’t think the government should be spending taxpayer money on it when we’re $16 trillion dollars in debt and counting.</p> <p>Honestly, I am very confused when people say that Mitt Romney wants to “take away my rights” as a woman. What right does a woman <em>not </em>have in this country? For that matter, other than civil unions, what rights do gays <em>not </em>have in this country?</p> <p>Both women and gays are free to vote, to speak freely, to drive, to work, to get an education, to hold hands with the ones we love, to practice the religion of our choice, to come and go as we please, to show our faces in public, to spend our money on whatever legal thing we wish, to be free. In other parts of the world like the Middle East, women are denied those kinds of rights, and if they violate any of those rules, they will be punished from physical mutilation to a bullet in the brain. In those parts of the world, gays are beheaded for being who they are.</p> <p><em>Those</em> are real rights. Those are real rights being taken away, being persecuted, being wronged. Paying for your own birth control, donating to a company you believe in yourself, and all of those social issues are merely encouraging this nation to be one of fiscal responsibility and accountability. Asking women to pay for themselves is not oppression; cutting off a woman’s nose for leaving the house without a male relative is oppression.</p> <p>I am voting for Mitt Romney because I am worried about my future and this country’s future; not as merely a woman, but as an American. It’s funny because Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being sexist when it’s been the President’s campaign who has pandered to the female vote using expressions like “vote like your lady parts depend on it,” and putting out ads that compare voting like losing your virginity. All of the focus for women from the Obama campaign has all been sexual even though women’s unemployment is 11%, and there are more women living in poverty than there ever has been in our nation’s history. Not only that, President Obama’s own female staff makes 18% less than his male staff.</p> <p>Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being homophobic when he says that while he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, gay marriage is a state issue, and should the people of the state vote in favor, so be it. He’s also fought his career against discrimination based on race and sexuality, while also showing favor to civil unions. Meanwhile, President Obama has flip flopped on this issue numerous times. While he made his pro-gay marriage stance public this May right before the campaign started for this election, just last week during his MTV interview, he said he would not be focusing on gay marriage in his second term, and said that it was a state issue. This is the exact same position Mitt Romney has, and yet, Governor Romney is the one being called a homophobe.</p> <p>Furthermore, President Obama has run this country’s economy into the ground, supports the Muslim Brotherhood who treat women and gays worse than animals, denied the ambassador of Libya and his embassy relief during a terrorist attack they knew about well in advance, and, among other things, signed the NDAA, which allows the President to arrest and detain an American citizen without cause or due process. This is not the kind of America our Founding Fathers envisioned, and it certainly isn’t the kind of America in which I want to live. And those are the pressing issues that affect every single American, no matter what their demographic.</p> <p>I understand that people have their priorities. Your priorities are clearly not my priorities. But I do resent when people (not necessarily you specifically) insist that I “should” vote for Obama simply because I am a woman. Women won the right to vote on August 18, 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. So I see this constant “You are a woman, therefore, you should vote for Obama” insistence as a threat to my right as an American. I have the right to vote however I choose. Same as any gay or black or Hispanic individual. Because we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color — we are Americans who want this country to thrive economically again, to be respected around the world again, to protect our own.</p> <p>I understand that your message wasn’t meant to hate or to be disrespectful. I welcome questions. I welcome discussion.

I really don't understand you, you are a woman, and yet you support the man who would take away abortion rights, funding for planned parenthood etc? why would you let someone just take away your rights? economically Romney has some okay policy ideas, but how can you not think about all of the people he would be harming or just doesn't care about? gays immigrants women. and again, i mean to be most respectful. forgettingmymind <p><a href="http://mezzoalex.tumblr.com/post/34885160172/conservativewoman-i-was-asked-to-make-this" class="tumblr_blog">mezzoalex</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://conservativewoman.tumblr.com/post/34834537232/i-was-asked-to-make-this-rebloggable-well-you">conservativewoman</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>*I was asked to make this rebloggable…</p> <p>Well, you don’t know me as a person very well because I am Pro-Life, and I believe that Planned Parenthood should be privately funded, not federal funded like every other business in this nation. So I agree with Mitt Romney on his Pro-Life stance, as a woman’s right is whether or not she wishes to engage in sex, not to terminate the human life she created exercising her right. I also agree with him that Planned Parenthood should no longer receive tax dollars, and instead rely on donations and competition in the free market.</p> <p>However, Mitt Romney cannot ban abortion by himself. He does have the power to appoint a Supreme Court Justice, but there is an entire system called “checks and balances” in the government. The President is not a dictator, no matter how much President Obama wishes it were. He doesn’t have almighty power; that’s why we have the House of Representatives and the Senate as well as the Supreme Court. If Mitt Romney led a campaign to end abortion, I’d be all for it. But he’d have a whole lot of work in front of him to achieve that, and it’s glaringly clear that the economy and getting people back to work is Romney and Ryan’s #1 priority along with foreign policy to keep America safe.</p> <p>Furthermore, America’s economy is on the brink of collapse. A broken economy affects every single, solitary American, not just women or immigrants or gays. I know there are women out there who want abortion. I know there are gays out there who want marriage. I know there are immigrants out there who want to become citizens. But there are the majority in this country that include men, women, straights, gays, legal immigrants, blacks, whites, Hispanics, people of every walk of life who want a better life. If they cannot get jobs, if they cannot provide for themselves, the other social issues matter very little.</p> <p>There was a gay man who once said that he would love to be able to get married. (For the record, I am pro-gay civil unions.) But he would rather have a job to go to to provide a home and a hearth for his partner and their children rather than living on the street with nothing but a ring on his finger.</p> <p>On the subject of Planned Parenthood, they will be fine in the private market, just like Sesame Street. If people want it around, they will keep it around. That’s how businesses work. But taxpayers should not be responsible for funding it, especially as doing so violates religious freedoms from Catholics, Christians, Jews, etc. who don’t support abortion. (Not to mention, many religions disapprove of contraception considering sex should be kept within marriage where the two people should be prepared for children anyway.) Mitt Romney does not want to ban Planned Parenthood; he just doesn’t think the government should be spending taxpayer money on it when we’re $16 trillion dollars in debt and counting.</p> <p>Honestly, I am very confused when people say that Mitt Romney wants to “take away my rights” as a woman. What right does a woman <em>not </em>have in this country? For that matter, other than civil unions, what rights do gays <em>not </em>have in this country?</p> <p>Both women and gays are free to vote, to speak freely, to drive, to work, to get an education, to hold hands with the ones we love, to practice the religion of our choice, to come and go as we please, to show our faces in public, to spend our money on whatever legal thing we wish, to be free. In other parts of the world like the Middle East, women are denied those kinds of rights, and if they violate any of those rules, they will be punished from physical mutilation to a bullet in the brain. In those parts of the world, gays are beheaded for being who they are.</p> <p><em>Those</em> are real rights. Those are real rights being taken away, being persecuted, being wronged. Paying for your own birth control, donating to a company you believe in yourself, and all of those social issues are merely encouraging this nation to be one of fiscal responsibility and accountability. Asking women to pay for themselves is not oppression; cutting off a woman’s nose for leaving the house without a male relative is oppression.</p> <p>I am voting for Mitt Romney because I am worried about my future and this country’s future; not as merely a woman, but as an American. It’s funny because Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being sexist when it’s been the President’s campaign who has pandered to the female vote using expressions like “vote like your lady parts depend on it,” and putting out ads that compare voting like losing your virginity. All of the focus for women from the Obama campaign has all been sexual even though women’s unemployment is 11%, and there are more women living in poverty than there ever has been in our nation’s history. Not only that, President Obama’s own female staff makes 18% less than his male staff.</p> <p>Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being homophobic when he says that while he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, gay marriage is a state issue, and should the people of the state vote in favor, so be it. He’s also fought his career against discrimination based on race and sexuality, while also showing favor to civil unions. Meanwhile, President Obama has flip flopped on this issue numerous times. While he made his pro-gay marriage stance public this May right before the campaign started for this election, just last week during his MTV interview, he said he would not be focusing on gay marriage in his second term, and said that it was a state issue. This is the exact same position Mitt Romney has, and yet, Governor Romney is the one being called a homophobe.</p> <p>Furthermore, President Obama has run this country’s economy into the ground, supports the Muslim Brotherhood who treat women and gays worse than animals, denied the ambassador of Libya and his embassy relief during a terrorist attack they knew about well in advance, and, among other things, signed the NDAA, which allows the President to arrest and detain an American citizen without cause or due process. This is not the kind of America our Founding Fathers envisioned, and it certainly isn’t the kind of America in which I want to live. And those are the pressing issues that affect every single American, no matter what their demographic.</p> <p>I understand that people have their priorities. Your priorities are clearly not my priorities. But I do resent when people (not necessarily you specifically) insist that I “should” vote for Obama simply because I am a woman. Women won the right to vote on August 18, 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. So I see this constant “You are a woman, therefore, you should vote for Obama” insistence as a threat to my right as an American. I have the right to vote however I choose. Same as any gay or black or Hispanic individual. Because we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color — we are Americans who want this country to thrive economically again, to be respected around the world again, to protect our own.</p> <p>I understand that your message wasn’t meant to hate or to be disrespectful. I welcome questions. I welcome discussion.
