GOP Missouri Senate Candidate Courtland “Caveman” Sykes: Women Should Be Housewives, Not Be “Career-Obsessed Banshees”

Via Raw Story 

Republican U.S. Senate candidate for Missouri Courtland Sykes blasted “women’s rights” this week. In a statement posted to Facebook on Tuesday, Sykes said that he had been asked if he “supports women’s rights.” “I want to come home to a home cooked dinner every night at six,” Sykes said, referring to demands he makes of his girlfriend. “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.”

The candidate said that he hoped his daughters do not grow up to be “career obsessed banshees who forgo home life and children and the happiness of family to become nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils who shriek from the top of a thousand tall buildings they are [SIC] think they could have leaped in a single bound — had men not been ‘suppressing them.’ It’s just nuts.”

I too want a fresh cooked dinner on the table when I get home at 5, but my cat refuses to cook it for me. #Catsogyny

  1. When I was a graduate student at UNC in 1975, my cat, Shadizar (25 lbs.); would leave rabbits for me. Then really be pissed when I offered him them cooked!
