Courtland Sykes also referred to today’s feminists as “shrieking banshees”
Hoo boy, you’re gonna want to buckle up for this one. A Republican candidate running for senator in Missouri publicly bashed women’s rights in a mind-boggling official statement, and what he said about women and home-cooked dinners will make your blood boil.
Courtland Sykes (because of course his name is Courtland), took to his official Facebook page to let his potential constituents know exactly where he stands on women’s rights: all the way back in the Dark Ages.
“I want to come home to a home cooked dinner every night at six,” Sykes wrote about the demands he places upon the girlfriend he has somehow been able to obtain and keep around. “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.”
Ummm… excuse me?
Oh, but there’s more. He referred to feminists as “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.”
This she-devil banshee can think of a lot of ways to tell you to go fuck yourself, Courtland Sykes, but Twitter handled it with more aplomb and biting wit. The entire internet couldn’t wait to tell this guy exactly how he can go about getting his precious “home-cooked meals.”
Here's an easy way to come home to a home-cooked dinner even if you're single: Cook your own bloody dinner the day before and refrigerate it. Heat it up when you get home. Voila. No need to subjugate a human being to get it.— Kylo Bean (@favomancer) January 25, 2018
He deserves it. He’s a man. He works hard. I’d greet him at the door with a nice cup of hemlock tea. For dinner, he’d get mushrooms from the garden. I have a great variety called Death Caps that taste great!— Lizzie Brown (@LizzGBrown) January 25, 2018
Preferably the one Jack Pearson had.— Perrie Samotin (@PerrieWS) January 26, 2018
LOL SHE WENT THERE. Don’t bring our beloved Pearson family into this mess! (Just kidding, this joke was the equivalent of a chef’s kiss.)
From now on please only refer to me as a "nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devil" https://t.co/kGwHwG0wKZ

Here’s hoping the people of Missouri don’t vote this asshole into Congress and instead send him right where he belongs: a time warp.
