Sure, Republicans want to take away rights, but the real problem is that women won’t date them!
In an editorial published last week titled, “If Attitudes Don’t Shift, A Political Dating Mismatch Will Threaten Marriage,” The Washington Post’s editorial board fretted that political polarization in this country has reached the point where it is now a prominent and often decisive factor in determining who Americans settle on as their potential mates. They emphasize this trend is now so acute, it may actually threaten the institution of marriage as a whole!
And in true Beltway fashion, it’s women’s fault for not dating and marrying men who would strip them of their rights.
It’s easy enough to point to Donald Trump as the catalyst for such a drastic social upheaval. But by failing to address how Trump’s presence stoked certain beliefs and value systems among Republican men and instead just throwing up their hands and asserting that such “attitudes” must change and that “someone will need to compromise,” the Post ends up doing a disservice to its readers.
