Conway Reveals Her Stance On Feminism

| January 26, 2017

Kellyanne Conway, President Donald Trump’s counselor, had some interesting things to say about feminism in a Q&A with The Washington Post.

WaPo staff writer Joe Heim asked Conway, 50, “You don’t consider yourself a feminist?”

She replied that, no, she does not. Conway then proceeded to tear feminism apart in nine sentences:

I don’t consider myself a feminist. I think my generation isn’t a big fan of labels. My favorite label is mommy. I feel like the feminist movement has been hijacked by the pro-abortion movement or the anti-male sentiments that you read in some of their propaganda and writings. I’m not anti-male. One does not need to be pro-female and call yourself a feminist, when with it comes that whole anti-male culture where we want young boys to sit down and shut up in the classroom. And we have all of these commercials that show what a feckless boob the man in the house is. That’s not the way I see the men in my life, most especially my 12-year-old son. I consider myself a postfeminist. I consider myself one of those women who is a product of her choices, not a victim of her circumstances.

Conway said she “frankly didn’t see the point” of the Women’s March on Washington Saturday. The march was one day after Trump’s inauguration, and brought hundreds of thousands of people to Washington, D.C. to protest. “You have celebrities from the podium using profanity-laced insults. You have a very prominent singer [Madonna] who’s worth hundreds of millions of dollars not going over to a woman’s shelter here in D.C. to write a check, but instead saying that she thought of, quote, ‘burning down the White House.’”

    Kellyanne Conway is right on the mark. The filth that she was talking about at the women’s march on Washington are not worth the crap they spew.

    • Ms. E Smith

      Really?…. talk about filth, remember what your president said about what he could do to women because he was a celebrity… grab them by the ____y sounds like you are offended by what women say but not men… Hmmmm , might you be sexist?

      • The Redman

        Stupid white-folks, always ruining things, huh. maw-smitty. hahahhahahaahah

      • David Hummel

        Is locker room talk that was underhandedly recorded 15 years ago the best you’ve got. The hate filled terrorist I spoke of were talking a hell of a lot worse in public and on National television and radio. I mean have they no shame, there are kids watching them.

      • Look what the Clintons did to women over a 4 decade political career. Gary Byrne captured the ‘White House towels’ situation post Bill Clinton’s use. And the warnings he got from Arkansas state troopers when Clinton won and would be moving to the White House.

  • Ms. E Smith

    Well, Kellyanne, of course you don’t see the point of the Women’ March (Movement)… because you are living in a Stepford world, but the rest of us girls are slogging our lives away living on .77 cents to the man’s dollar….that includes for our entire career, and retirement (401K, pension, Social Security,savings, investments)…considering we pay the same rate as men for taxes, mortgages, utilities, commodities (in many cases more), etc. we are being screwed and told to enjoy it! It’s not going to happen.

    • jn317

      I fully agree with your just position that a woman who is able to do the exact job a man does should get the same pay rate, and more if she is better. But the women’s march was lewd, vulgar and violent(Madonna) and that does not portray women truthfully: it is the leftist vision to divide the sexes, the races and the country and… that leads to more hate and destruction. Bad attitudes do not solve the real issues, and staying angry does not resolve and work out solutions. I hope and pray we all will get a better wage when the economy is freed from the anti- freedom ideologues who want to control everything thinking they are smartter than us all, whether men or women. And aborting children does not make women happy, nor do women have two heartbeats in their own body: It is the child’s 2nd heartbeat. I saw happy faces and souls in the pro-life march.

    • wbedwards

      Ms. E You are entitled to your point of view but it’s definitely not what most secure strong women feel and think. All of the Women in my life are strong, independent thinkers who are College Educated, Well Informed, Gainfully employed and are earning equal or more than their husbands and significant others. They watched the “Freak” Show last weekend where you and your men hating feminazis march around with vulgar obscene signs, gestures, streams of profanity, vitriolic diatribes by the Hollywierd haters like Madonna, Ashely Judd and others. Wearing Vagina Hats and other adolescent attire only strengthen those who participated and supported yesterday’s Right to Life March. Where women and men Marched in Solidarity for the rights of the Unborn… Only in the United States of America everyone no matter how bizarre and twisted they are and behave are allowed to demonstrate and protest. Try doing this anywhere else and see what happens. I anxiously await your sarcastic and petty childish response.

      • Ms. E Smith

        You sir, you have no credibility with me. That’s nice for you, that the women in your life might be all those things, but I can bet you that they are NOT being compensated the same as a man would be in that job….and those ARE the facts, no matter how you try and discredit the commenter by your ‘petty childish’ name calling.

        • Mark K

          Missy Smith, you may want to review government regulations and union contracts prior to making such a global statement that women are not being compensated at the same rate as a man. If two people start as unionized teachers on the same date and at the same age, and one of them during their career applies for and receives a two year leave of absence, that person will always be behind in seniority, pay and retirement benefits. Apparently, a man who volunteers for the Peace Core mid career is being discriminated against by the “system”.

          • Ms. E Smith

            Yes, places where compensation is transparent and posted it is more equal…. but in the private corporate industry, it is not transparent, it is only between you and your immediate superiors…. and in some corporations… it’s grounds for dismissal to discuss..

          • Mark K

            Missy Smith, most private corporate industry publishes pay grids for a job title or job level…for sure in a unionized corporation! Furthermore, the legal system is open to provide help in discrimination lawsuits if these grids are applied inappropriately.

            In addition, there is an intersection between government safety regulations and resultant pay scales. For example, a female airline pilot who is ready to qualify for her captains stripes, but chooses to start a family and takes some time off will no longer be at the head of the line due to regulations regarding flight currency and resultant proficiency. Manufacturing works the same way, but not necessarily under government regs as the employee must qualify and remain current on the process they are responsible for.

            Other chosen lifestyles such as the stay-at-home mom who also is a babysitter for her neighbor who has stayed with full time employment, has depressed the average hourly wage for all women. Is this “bad” as the choice was that woman’s to make?

            If you recall your high school math classes where set theory is discussed, you will remember that the intersection of sets can be manipulated to obtain different answers, all of which are correct for that particular intersection of sets. Most all of the data published for purported wage discrepancies depicts wages based upon age, not seniority. Two different answers result from the same set of data.

          • Ms. E Smith

            You are living in your head…. and not in the real world.

          • Mark K

            Missy Smith, Your detailed and factual rebuttal is so enlightening. Here is my suggestion:

            Dump the pink hair, remove the nose ring, take a bath, dress business formal, and pray to God that you get a job in fewer than 100 interviews.
            After you obtain a job, and assuming that you do not get fired for insubordination, you will be able to determine whether your ideology is correct.

          • Ms. E Smith

            I have been very respectful to you, in spite of your repeated condescending comments. You don’t know anything about me, but I know a lot about you. You are the problem, you live in your white male privilege suit, pretending that you somehow earned your position all by yourself, instead of realizing that your success was on the backs of the women that supported you to get there…. and BTW, being in engineering at a Fortune 500 company, I’ve never had a problem obtaining any job I wanted…

          • Mark K

            Respectful? “You are living in your head…. and not in the real world.” Your words, not mine

            Furthermore, if truly an engineer, you should be able to analyze data and provide thoughtful rebuttal. Instead, you provide political talking points. That is not the sign of a proficient engineer. Do the parts that you design function as specified? Or do they work properly only after an engineering change initiated by someone with more experience in the art of engineering? Oh, sorry. I assumed that since you are “being in engineering at a Fortune 500 company” that you are an engineer. Me bad.

          • Ms. E Smith

            You’re right, ‘living in your head’ is an insult…. and I suppose assuming I had pink hair, a nose ring, needed a bath, and dressed in inappropriate business attire for a job, are niceties…. and yes, in the real world (inclusive of women), which you obviously are oblivious to, the war on Women’s Rights has been going on for some time and only getting worse. That Women’s March that you guys think was so vulgar, was just the 1st one… there will be more… stay tuned…

          • Ms. E Smith

            …and save your mansplaining for ‘montanamatt64’…. he needs some.

    • montanamatt64

      There was a day when one income was enough.
      Now, thanks to feminism making the gals think they are missing out, they went to work and now our economy is based on two income households . How can corporate crap be better than raising a family ?
      If it was not for abortion and birth control, the gals would be at home.
      Our homes would be stronger and happier.
      It is like the story of two lovers who lived in a peacful garden raising up beautiful sprouts. Then one listens to a smooth talking liar, and now the whole thing has been lost. Perverts are marching and it is called a right, killing babies is a right, white males, who not perfect created the most civilized circumstances are denegrated and worse, nothing is a sin any more. God help us. Like the scriptures proclaim: “in Those days, love of the mothers will grow cold”! Here we are.
      Only thinking that irish guys are smarter is racism and that is a crime.
      Pathetic stupid little minds. Closed off to the leading of the good clean holy spirit.
      I have a racist comment for all to read and it is true and it is racist…..
      Blacks make the best football players! There it is and it is true and it is racism. God is a racist!!!!!!!

        “Matt”. U R 1 of the smartest white-folks I have ever read a post on. U should have ran 4 president instead of trump-ah-hump. hahahhahahahhahaha

  • Knowledge Transfer

    Real women love men. Real men love women. See how easy that was.

  • wmg

    Quite a lady. Trump is smart to have counsel like her.

  • The Redman

    white-folks ruined america

    • wmg

      In school, I learned it was white folks that built America. Unless you refer to the progressive movement of late that is tearing it apart.

      • The Redman

        “In school”, U’ll “learn” everything about white-folks “but” the truth.

  • I know plenty of Conservative men who are pro-women, and plenty of Liberal women who are anti-woman. Look at the individual’s actions and toss out the labels. Look how he treats his mother, sister, daughter…
