I had no idea that women's suffrage was still so controversial. Apparently it is, at least to the guys at the Spearhead, and to the blog Full of Grace, Seasoned with Salt. Without further ado, the quote:
Women's suffrage may have been the first major event that said, "don't trust men". In other words, it was the beginning of the lost faith in manhood. It sent the message that men were inept to handle worldly affairs and when men gave women their vote, it kicked things up a notch by reinforcing the mindset that men were indeed inept little boys who can't figure anything out or get anything done without a woman's guidance. Had the men held their ground and the women held their faith, I believe any unsettling political/economic conditions would have improved. It is similar to our faith in God.
Woman Totally Ruining Everything
I should point out that the author of this fine piece of analysis is a woman. Some women are idiots. Into the Enemies List she goes.
