A U.S. Senate candidate from Missouri made national headlines after a critical analysis of modern women.
Courtland Sykes, who is vying for Sen. Claire McCaskill's seat, shared to his Facebook page his answer to "Do you favor Women's Rights?" when he filed for U.S. Senate candidacy in September 2017.
Sykes did not hold back in his response.
"I don't buy into radical feminism's crazed definition of modern womanhood and I never did. They don't own that definition - and never did. They made it up to suit their own nasty, snake-filled heads. Modern women can BE anything they want, including traditional women - as millions are fast becoming. Millennial women voters despised Hillary and cost her the election (and they weren’t Russians). I wonder why they despise her? One reason is they look at her personal life’s wreckage and didn’t want to become like her,” Sykes said.
Sykes states in his bio that he "is pro-Trump, pro-MAGA, pro-gun, anti-abortion, pro-wall—some have said he is the most outright and boldest of all Senatorial candidates regarding President Trump’s America First Agenda."
In the opening lines of his statement, Sykes said of his ideal home situation: "I want to come home to a home cooked dinner at six every night, one that she [his fiancé Chanel] fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives - think Norman Rockwell here and Gloria Steinem be damned."
The Senate candidate described how he would want his daughters raised.
Sykes stated, "I want daughters to have their own intelligence, their own dignity, their own workspace and their own degrees; I want them to build home based enterprises and live in homes shared with good husbands and I don't want them to grow up into career obsessed banshees who forego home life and children and the happiness of family to become nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils who shriek from the tops of a thousand tall buildings they think they could have leaped over in a single bound - had men not [been] 'suppressing them.'"
The candidate concluded his statement, saying he supported women's rights, but "not the kind that has oppressed natural womanhood for five long decades."
