It’s the Color of your Ticket not your Skin: FemiSex Congratulates black Americans Mia Love and Tim Scott, (and others!) in their history making wins last night!

I wonder just how great it feels to be Mia Love this morning. She is the first black female elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Women who dare to get uppity and toss off the Democrat mandate that women must be Blue—remember of our 20 XX US Senators, 80% are Democrats—are brave souls. The media is severely biased against women who run as Republicans. Mia Love is looking like a star.
And Tim Scott is the first black American to be elected to the Senate from a southern state in a long time and, the first to serve in both the House and Senate. And guess who appointed Scott to his seat: yes, that would be South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
The Democrat Party has lost its moral compass under Barack Obama’s shameful divisive politics. Yes, our system is oppositional, but that should not break on skin color or the number of X chromosomes one has.
For true diversity to happen there must be women and folks of color in both parties to a substantial degree. Otherwise we just end up being TOLD how to vote based upon melatonin levels and body cavities.
Slate has made an infographic of women in the House over the years that demonstrates how pervasive a problem we have: only 23 of the 100 women in the House are Republican women.
As we’ve said before, and will say again: if women want parity in Government, we have to allow women to be republicans and demand a halt to the media savagely attacking Republican women. Slate is at it again, with their mention of a Blue SUPER pac devoted to demanding (yes our word) women vote Blue. Slate is one of the biggest offenders or attacking women of the wrong color (Red) on the ticket. And they fail to mention a pac (Women Lead pac) devoted to electing Red women that has recently been born. http://www.womenleadpac.com/
Here are some added nice Congressional firsts: Republican Shelley Moore Capito is West Virginia’s first female senator!; Joni E, is Iowa’s first female senator! as well as the first female combat vet in the Senate; and New York Republican Elise Stefanik, is the youngest female elected to Congress!
