Women - Especially Lesbians- Are Shallow Money Sucking Beasts Says President of Marriage Policy

Women - Especially Lesbians- Are Shallow Money Sucking Beasts Says President of Marriage Policy | Herstory | Scoop.it

Just a few days before Women’s Equality Day, the President of the Center for Marriage Policy, David R. Usher, made a very bold statement, accusing women, especially lesbians, of being shallow, money-sucking beasts who desire to enslave men.  His article in Renew America on August 21 has triggered a landslide of reactions from many people, including the LGBTQ community, wondering which dense brain cell he could have pulled his theories out of.


According to David Usher, same sex marriages (especially between women), if allowed to spread across the nation, will spur a mass enslavement of men.  How will this occur?  Apparently, lesbian women are primed to get themselves pregnant outside of their partnership by unsuspecting straight and even gay males, who they will then demand child-support from, raping the tax-payers to support their “sinful” lifestyle.  He even goes so far as to suggest that single mothers would marry each other in order to collect double child-support and cause an economic slavery to occur for heterosexual men everywhere.

Domestic violence report: Over 1,700 women slain by men in one year, 93% knew killer | WashingtonExaminer.com

Despite a nationwide effort to curb domestic violence, 1,706 women were slain by men in 2012 — and virtually all knew their killer.
A new analysis timed for this week’s 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act signed into law Sept. 13, 1994, also found that 62 percent of the women killed were “wives, common-law wives, ex-wives, or girlfriends of the offenders.”
Many of the women died of gunshots. In fact, the report from the Violence Policy Center and provided to Secrets suggested that women don’t get a gun because women with guns in homes were three times more likely to be murdered than those with no gun in the home.
The Center’s report, titled “When Men Murder Women,” looked at 2012 data, the latest available. Alaska, South Carolina and Oklahoma were the top female murder states.
