“It’s really depressing, honestly,” Whitmer stated for Bridge Magazine. “This culture hasn’t changed. This isn’t new. What is new is that there’s a bold set of women in the workforce that aren’t going to take it. They are documenting and they are speaking their truths, and that I find a great deal of inspiration in.”
She went on to claim that female elected officials face higher numbers of death threats and that sexism is a real thing in the Michigan Capitol.
“It is a dangerous, vitriolic moment and yet I don’t think any of us can bite our tongue,” Whitmer said, adding that women need to “insist on justice.”
Her colleague, State Rep. Daire Rendon (R) stated that this is a behavioural pattern for Gretchen and that it just seems “convenient” to ger to start whining at the very moment when scandals about nursing home deaths under her watch appear at all Michigan corners…
“She always uses her gender as a fallback to defend herself and play the victim,” Rendon said. “Truth is, she made those decisions on her own, and she cannot find any other reason to shift the blame and deflect the spotlight.”
Even a woman from the higher circle didn’t agree with Gretchen’s statement and explained her behavioural pattern as a simple excuse for the current situation. State Sen. Lana Theis (R), chairwoman of the Senate Insurance and Banking Committee, stated: “As with anything in life, context is key. The governor’s comment was political – she’s name-calling to fit a political narrative, painting herself as the victim to excuse her lack of interaction with the legislature from the very beginning,” Theis told Breitbart News.
She’s trying to win hearts and minds and, thus, sympathy, headlines and votes. To blanketly state that the Capitol is rife with sexism ignores reality.
The three top elected officials in Michigan are women. Female lawmakers like myself serve as chairwomen of numerous committees, addressing the most important issues of our time. Female legislators were elected by both male and female colleagues to positions of leadership within our own caucuses. A significant number of legislators’ most trusted advisors – their chiefs of staff — are women. The evidence does not support her accusation. This is not to say that there aren’t sexist individuals – of course, there are – but having so many women in positions of leadership within the institution flatly debunks the claim. Passions run deep in this business and one must be able to handle the criticisms that come with it – not just dole them out.”
“The easiest thing to do politically these days is for someone to blame sexism for their own lack of ability to work with people,” Theis said.
