Apparently women cannot be understood, even by themselves. At least that's according to anti-choice Nebraska State Senator Bill Kintner. He does believe, however, his faith as a Christian gives him authority to make decisions on behalf of women.
What could possibly go wrong?
Anti-Choice Nebraska State Senator Says ‘Women Don’t Understand Themselves’
According to the story, when Kintner's turn came up, he said,
“Biggest mystery? Women. No one understands them. They don’t even understand themselves. Books and books and books have been written about it, and no one understands it.
You hear that, ladies? We don’t even understand ourselves. Even with all those books written about “it.” Thank goodness he pointed that out because for a while there (you know, all my life), I thought I understood what I wanted. I thought I wanted things like family, a good, strong marriage, an education, the freedom to have my own beliefs, to raise my kids in the manner I see fit, and to not have men who have never met me and mean nothing to me make decisions regarding my reproductive system. Good thing Bill Kintner came along and let me know that was just a figment of my imagination. Of course, “men,” he says, “are very easy to understand. Very basic, very simple.”
His comments on marriage?
“In our household, we have a separation of powers. The legislative is downstairs and the executive is upstairs. We don’t talk about what she does on her side and what I do on my side. There’s no sharing of inside information.”
Kintner has stated that his Christian belief system is what drives his pro-life point of view.
