According to Barbara Streisand all women should think with one collective thought and not have differing opinions. Anyone who thinks differently than the collective must have been brainwashed by their husbands or be subservient to the them. Only one thought process is allowed.

I know you find English challenging, but Babs said "a lot of women", not "anyone". Those mean different things.

You're welcome. I try to help where I can.

Not the first time I've heard someone say that. It's good to hear even leftists starting to condemn it.

It does make me question a women's self respect if they can support a man who is routinely disrespectful to women, admits to assaulting women, walks in on underage half dressed girls, cheats on all his wives, and makes sexually infused comments about his own daughter. That is not the kind of man I look up to and do not want my daughter thinking I would in any way support such behavior.

I missed the part where she said women aren't allowed to think differently and we should think with one collective thought. Can you point out where she said that?

“A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote; they don’t believe enough in their own thoughts. Maybe that woman who’s so articulate, so experienced and so fit for the presidency,” referring of course to Hillary Clinton, “was too intimidating. … Perhaps she made women feel unsuccessful.”

In other words anyone that voted for Trump and not Hillary don't have their own thoughts because they vote the way their husbands vote and they were intimidated by Hillary.

In other words... "Anyone who thinks differently than the collective must have been brainwashed by their husbands or be subservient to the them. Only one thought process is allowed." sounds about right to me.

And apparently to others also since even leftists are speaking out against her on this one.

Great voice but she's an idiot.

I wondered why you did not include the actual quote from her. Then I read it, and discovered the reason is that you completely lied and misrepresented what she said. Did you think no one would check? I honest discussion too hard for you? For those wondering what she actually said, here is the quote from the source article:

“Obviously, some women cast their ballots for Trump in the presidential election, but why would they vote for a man who doesn’t let them control their own bodies? It’s a terribly complex thing,” she said. “A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote; they don’t believe enough in their own thoughts. Maybe that woman who’s so articulate, so experienced and so fit for the presidency,” referring of course to Hillary Clinton, “was too intimidating. … Perhaps she made women feel unsuccessful.” Streisand said that these realizations were “so devastating to me and I was heartbroken.”

So what you are saying is actual words do not matter, you will make up whatever you want to push people into believing. I see...

See what I did there?

She literally said that the only reason women voted for Trump is because men control their thought processes. If they had thought on their own then they surely wouldn't have voted for Trump. That is saying that women are not allowed to think differently and if they do then its not really their fault, its their husbands fault for controlling the woman's thoughts. That they must think like she thinks they should think. If you don't get that then I don't know what to tell ya. :shrug:

That is not what she said or suggested, Moderate Right. She wasn't saying women needed to agree with her or her politics as one uniform corporate body. She said:

“Obviously, some women cast their ballots for Trump in the presidential election, but why would they vote for a man who doesn’t let them control their own bodies? It’s a terribly complex thing,” she said. “A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote; they don’t believe enough in their own thoughts. Maybe that woman who’s so articulate, so experienced and so fit for the presidency,”

She is stating why so many women voted for Donald Trump. Here is the problem: How on Earth does she know this? Has she ever sat down and spoken to another woman who voted for Donald Trump? Or anyone who has voted for Donald Trump, for that matter? Barring such conversations, I did not realize that sometime in the last couple of years, Ms. Streisand became able to perform telepathy. :roll:

Nope, didn't say that at all. But there are multiple ways of saying the same thing.

I saw her say that many women do that. I didn't see any words from her that match what you or the OP claimed.

Probably the same way so many alt-righters know that black people vote as they do. Because we hear constantly about how blacks are prisoners of the Dems and have to vote for them. Or maybe she knows as much as the Trump fans who claim that all immigrants vote for Democrats.

I don't know if it's because "they're controlled by their husbands" or that they were "intimidated" by Hillary as much as everything has become a complete hyperpartisan **** fest that everyone votes for the party they associate with without thinking anything through. It's hard to see why women would support Trump given his words and actions, but it's easy if you consider that many people cannot see past the R or D and don't really consider politicians words or actions.

I find it hilarious that you and those like you read all kinds of things into what Trump says or doesn't say and assume many things with him, yet when it comes to another Trump hater you're so literal that its both pathetic and hilarious at the same time. Double Standard noted.

So in other words, she didn't literally say that. Yes, Kal - we already knew. That didn't stop you and the OP from making things up.

I'll ask you, by the way, to be specific about what I "read" into what Trump says? Because I'm not an alt-righter. I don't pretend to know what's in someone's mind. I know what someone says. Now, please, by all means, show me all the examples of the times where I read things into Trump's own direct words, or read things into things he never even said. I'll wait.

Luckily not all of us are too dumb to get past the letter at the end of someone's name. I'm a female who has been a Republican since 1980. But I'm also too smart and have too much integrity to vote for a man who fantasizes about his porn star boink partners looking like his adult daughter, and who brags about grabbing women's genitals without their permission. Many of us are smarter than that.

You're reading a lot into it that she didn't say. She opined that these women went along with their husbands opinions because they lacked confidence in their own. That does not imply that their husbands controlled their thoughts or were at all at fault. You came up with that notion all on your very own.

What is the need to talk to a woman who obviously looks the other way on so many issues relating to women, children and so many other issues? I know a lot of women who voted for Trump. Why they voted for him is beyond me but they usually have several things in common. One is deference to male authority. Another is simply cultural, they were carefully taught to be Republicans. The other is religion, many of the women I spoke with vote strictly along recommendations by their church leaders. Some are so rich all they think about is their own wallet. Lastly, they all listen to Fox News. Women like Babs though share very little with them as do my wife, daughters and their female friends.

So you think Ms. Streisand is intentionally misrepresenting data to maintain a particular ideological narrative in the same way that white nationalists intentionally misrepresent the data to pursue and maintain their ideological narrative? If so, fair enough. I am just wondering where she obtained the data in the first place. I mean, if there was at least some opinion polling showing that some women were indeed browbeaten by their husbands or significant others, or felt intimidated by Hillary Clinton that would certainly be something to go off of.

You'd have to ask Ms. Streisand that question. I don't pretend to know what is in someone's mind.
