Most women hate Trump, but some are all too happy to go along with his ugly views on women.
for many conservative women, misogyny is a value-add.
As illogical as it might seem on the surface, many, many women share all manner of sexist and derogatory beliefs about women. Female misogyny has been central to the conservative movement for decades now. A reliable career path for a conservative woman who wants a career in politics is to be a spokeswoman for female misogyny, using her gender as cover to advance anti-feminist goals, such as stripping away reproductive rights, fighting women’s equality in the workplace and even, disturbingly, undermining efforts to reduce sexual harassment and violence.
Misogyny is about dividing women into two categories, good women and bad women, and then dumping all this bile and hatred on women who are deemed unworthy for whatever reason.
