Montana Politics

Rob Natelson Has a Funny Idea About Women

It’s quite likely that he has a number of peculiar (read antebellum) ideas about women, but I found this tidbit in his paean to Michelle Bachman too funny to ignore. He writes:

On the practical level in the TV age:  Bachmann easily pulls off the challenging feat of looking simultaneously traditionally-feminine and competent.

Strangely enough, I’ve never found it challenging for women to be both competent and “traditionally-feminine.” In fact, I think that both men and women can be quite competent no matter how they fit Professor Natelson’s outdated views on gender, sex, and appearance.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
