Robert O’Brien Nominee: Janice Shaw Crouse

You’re gonna love this one from Janice Shaw Crouse of Concerned Women for America:

“For many years, both secular and religious feminists operated with the same definition of equality,” says Crouse. “Then somewhere in the last 30 years that changed. Feminism was taken over by lesbians, by those who wanted quotas and abortion on demand.”


Yeah, all those lesbians and their abortions! It gets worse:

“Christian women do not like workplace quotas because Christian women don’t like the idea of being forced into the workplace – Christian women like choice, the option of going into the workplace or not,” says Crouse.

Part of the workplace tension between Christian women and secular feminists relates to how both groups define success. A Christian woman tends not to seek accolades or advancement solely in the workplace but instead views her work as part of her calling as a wife and mother.

“In general, Christian women are not in the workplace for power, they are there because they have some challenge, some very fulfilling responsibility,” adds Crouse. “Many Christian women choose to work part time, to bring in some extra income to help the family, but they don’t view their job as a career or they don’t see themselves as career women – they see themselves helping their husbands. It’s a completely different perspective from modern secular feminists, a fundamental disagreement and a different worldview about what it means to be a woman.”

One wonders whether she thinks Sarah Palin is a real Christian.

    I’d ask some of the women who work where I do whether they’re in it just to help their husband but I’m afraid I’d get my ass kicked.

    “Christian women do not like workplace quotas because Christian women don’t like the idea of being forced into the workplace – Christian women like choice, the option of going into the workplace or not,” says Crouse.

    a squad of four beutiful lesbian special workforce police are going to come to the house of every good Christian woman while their husbands are away and force her to submit to their . . . er. . . Probe her about her work . . . er, no. . . make her buy Mary Kay Cosmetics. . . no . . . make them go out and buy sensible shoes. . . OK, how about that?

    “Christian women do not like workplace quotas because Christian women don’t like the idea of being forced into the workplace – Christian women like choice, the option of going into the workplace or not,” says Crouse.

    Wait… What!

    They don’t like being forced into the workplace but instead enjoy a lifetime of servitude to their male overlords who view them as a baby factories with less rights than a bundle of cells.

    I’m sure that’s an accurate description of Christian women that they can all get behind, yeah right.

  4. Randomfactor says

    Why is she working with CC4A? Helping her husband?

    And she thinks quotas (which are illegal) FORCE women to work?

  5. speedwell says

    I would also like to have “my” choice between going into the workplace or not. Currently my choices are restricted to going into the workplace or staying home and getting fired, after which my choices will be to stay home and ration my remaining food and toilet paper until I once again am given the choice to enter a workplace to work there.

    Or I could have the choice to get married, I guess. Well, I chose that, and spent ten years with someone whose most productive weeks were when he made over minimum wage and/or managed not to cost me too much more than his share of the food and housing costs.

    Where is this job and/or productive husband I’m supposed to be entitled to choose?

    “Christian women do not like workplace quotas because Christian women don’t like the idea of being forced into the workplace – Christian women like choice, the option of going into the workplace or not,”

    Did I miss them memo where Janice represents the ~1 billion people who are Christian women?

    And I fail to see how not liking to be forced into the workplace makes her Christian feminists any different from anyone else – male, female, atheist, buddhist, ultrafeminist or mysogynist. As a non-christian non-female, I certainly don’t want to be forced to work. Some work I do because I like it, some to pay the bills. Like everyone. Duh.

    I have a Christian woman friend who is happily single and without kids. Don’t think I should introduce them, poor Janice’s head might explode.

  7. marcus says

    I don’t care if teh wimmenz want to work or not! I say get your ass up off that couch and get to work! We got quotas to fill! Give me that fucking remote and make me a sammich on you’re way out! Our MRA believes in equality of teh genders.

  8. Aquaria says

    “For many years, both secular and religious feminists operated with the same definition of equality,” says Crouse. “Then somewhere in the last 30 years that changed. Feminism was taken over by lesbians, by those who wanted quotas and abortion on demand.”

    LOL wut?

    1) Every time Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton would start a women’s rights group, the Christard women would start taking over, and turn the group into a tea-drinking social club and throw out the feminists who were trying to affect change!

    We’re pretty sure these days that Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were atheists, btw.

    2) Abortion was legalized by MEN, cupcake, and after several states had already made it legal. Which they did well before the feminist movement of the 70s.

    The rest must have, as always, sounded better in the original German.

  9. eric says

    MikeMa – heck, how about just giving other feminists the choice of what social policies they ought to support as feminists?

    It seems a bit self-contradictory for any movement that wishes to empower its members with greater choice to complain when said members start to disagree with each other. It sounds very much like she wants a Life-of-Bryan, ‘repeat after me: we are all individuals!’ type of feminism.

  10. Chiroptera says

    Christian women do not like workplace quotas….

    Neither does the Supreme Court of the US. So what’s the problem again?

    -

    Feminism was taken over by lesbians….

    Sounds like someone needs to turn their safe-search back on.

    For many years, both secular and religious feminists operated with the same definition of equality,” says Crouse. “Then somewhere in the last 30 years that changed. Feminism was taken over by lesbians, by those who wanted quotas and abortion on demand.

    So another Fundie is cooly and deliberately lying for Jesus. Colour me unsurprised.

    Of course the myth that Feminism is a stealth attack by Lesbians has been going on since the late 60′s.

    Nothing new in this lie either.

    Come on Janice! Can’t you be original with your bold faced obvious lies?.

  12. D. C. Sessions says

    Many Christian women choose to work part time, to bring in some extra income to help the family, but they don’t view their job as a career or they don’t see themselves as career women – they see themselves helping their husbands. It’s a completely different perspective from modern secular feminists, a fundamental disagreement and a different worldview about what it means to be a woman.

    Shorter:

    “We don’t believe that women should have equal rights with men in the workplace. We don’t want them, and other women shouldn’t have them either.”

  13. DaveL says

    Totally invisible in Shaw Crouse’s rant are the countless single Christian mothers with children to feed and bills to pay. I’m sure they would like the option of going into the workplace or not, but it sure as hell isn’t feminism that puts them in that position. I’d sure like to know exactly what her version of feminism entails and how it’s supposed to help these women.

  14. says

    “Many Christian women choose to work part time, to bring in some extra income to help the family, but they don’t view their job as a career or they don’t see themselves as career women – they see themselves helping their husbands.

    Oh shut up and go make me a sandwich.

  15. abb3w says

    Or perhaps, viewing the job as a career, but a career only taken for the purpose of earning enough money so the family could live comfortably.

    Of course, that was my Dad‘s view of work….

  16. ManOutOfTime says

    And so my chaff theory of rightwing opinion is again confirmed. Like the bits of fool spewed out the back of a fighter jet, the right wing bullshit machine’s job is to throw into the air every conceivable non-idea, faith-based lie, and mischaracterization of progressives and minority groups. In this way, there is an on-the-other-hand for every rational thought and the illusion of parity among the “two sides” of every issue. “Some say the feminist cause has been hijacked and perverted by female sexual deviants for their own destructive purposes.” See? It’s easy.

  17. anandine says

    One wonders whether she thinks Sarah Palin is a real Christian.

    She answered this with, “Many Christian women choose to work part time, to bring in some extra income to help the family, but they don’t view their job as a career…”

    Sarah quit half way through to spend more time traveling with her family in Iowa and New Hampshire.

  18. Doc Bill says

    I don’t know who Concerned Women of America are, but it’s one, sick organization.

    Just saying, if you listed the women in the organization and the number of failed relationships the correlation would be 1 to 1. These women are so obviously sexually repressed that they must have permanent headaches.

    There’s an excellent series of videos with Richard Dawkins interviewing the vapid and completely hideous Wendy Wright and at one point Dawkins implores her to go down the street to the Natural History Museum and just look at the fossils she claims don’t exist and she just laughs in his face, Coulter-style.

    Oh, and while I’m ranting, I’m guessing they chose the name of their organization because “Women of America Who Just Don’t Give a Flying Fuck” was too long.

  19. DaveL says

    Oh, and while I’m ranting, I’m guessing they chose the name of their organization because “Women of America Who Just Don’t Give a Flying Fuck” was too long.

    I’ve sometimes heard Concerned Women for America referred to as Ladies Against Women.

  20. Chaos Engineer says

    Part of the workplace tension between Christian women and secular feminists relates to how both groups define success. A Christian woman tends not to seek accolades or advancement solely in the workplace but instead views her work as part of her calling as a wife and mother.

    How does this cause workplace tension?

    The secular feminists can apply for the career-type jobs with lots of potential for raises and promotions, and the Christian women can apply for part-time dead-end jobs that involve mindless drudgery. You’d think they’d both be happy that there’s less competition for the jobs they want! (I mean, seriously, does even the most dogmatic Christian woman go around saying, “That’s a man’s job and it’s not appropriate for you. You should be trying to take my job instead.”)

  21. Modusoperandi says

    anadine “Sarah quit half way through to spend more time traveling with her family in Iowa and New Hampshire.”
    Plus, she works from home, where she can be closer to [the staff who are looking after] her family.

  22. Brain Hertz says

    Feminism was taken over by lesbians, by those who wanted quotas and abortion on demand.

    Lesbians want abortion on demand? Is this from The Onion?

    Concerned Women for America

    Those women are right to be concerned – America is full of idiot Christians.

  24. Mattir says

    A Christian woman tends not to seek accolades or advancement solely in the workplace but instead views her work as part of her calling as a wife and mother.

    I am so confused now. Does being a mostly stay-at-home parent (and homeschooler to boot) mean that I’m secretly a Christian instead of an atheist feminist? Or does it just mean that the Concerned Women of America types have really poor reality testing?

  25. wheatdogg says

    “Christian women do not like workplace quotas because Christian women don’t like the idea of being forced into the workplace – Christian women like choice, the option of going into the workplace or not,” says Crouse.

    Conversation in a corporate HR office in Crouse’s imaginary world:

    CEO: How’s our quotas shaping up?

    HR chief: Not so good. We’re a little short of our female quota.

    CEO: Crap. Well, you’re going to hit some churches and round up some stay-at-home moms or something. Take a couple of the Hummers and a security detail in case they don’t come along peaceably.

    It means you have a secret life as a wealthy lesbian abortionist.

  27. celoneth says

    So according to her, Christian women like having choices – as long as there is only one choice that is permitted? I don’t think they understand the concept of choice very well. Seems to me that they think the average feminist gets a kick out of abandoning her family and getting her weekly abortion + pedicure.

  28. valhar2000 says

    Doc Bill @23: Alternatively, they are psychopaths who are far more interested in power and domination than they are in sex or relationships.

  29. robb says

    i’m confused. i thought christian women’s workplace was either in the kitchen making dinner or in the bedroom making babies. how come she is spouting that nonsense instead of making dinner or babies? it’s like she seeking personal accolades or advancement instead of viewing her work as part of her calling as a wife and mother! somebody better let her husband know about this before she goes to far!!!!11!!1!1!!!11
