“Lesser Cut Of Meat” Senator Apologizes For Sexist Comment

SOUTH CAROLINA SENATOR SAYS HE’S SORRY … 

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. Senator Thomas Corbin has apologized for sexist comments made last week toward the lone female member of the State Senate, Katrina Shealy.

As reported exclusively by FITS, Corbin referred to women as “lesser cuts of meat” during a legislative dinner last Tuesday evening in downtown Columbia, S.C.  The comment was a reference to the Biblical account of creation, in which God made woman by fashioning her out of a man’s rib.  According to Corbin, the rib is a “lesser cut of meat.”

This remark – which quickly went viral – was evidently part of a long-running “ribbing” Corbin has been giving Shealy on gender-related issues.  Previously, lawmakers and legislative staffers have told us about comments attributed to Corbin to the effect that women do not belong in the S.C. General Assembly and should instead be “at home baking cookies” or “barefoot and pregnant.”

Apparently the first-term lawmaker – no stranger to bizarre statements – is now rethinking that perspective in light of national coverage his remarks prompted.

“Senator Corbin has telephoned me and we have talked privately,” Shealy wrote on her Facebook page Sunday. “We had a frank conversation. He apologized for what he said last week. I believe he was sincere in offering that apology.  Although I do not believe that these type (of) comments are ever acceptable, I accept his apology so we can move forward. He has agreed to make a public apology next week.”

Hmmmm …

We’ve never been especially keen on politically correct “teachable moments” here at FITS, but sources tell us Corbin has been needling away at Shealy with sexist remarks for months (years, even) … and that she finally reached a “breaking point” and decided to stand up for herself.

Good for her …

Speech is free, obviously, but women shouldn’t have to tolerate that sort of nonsense in any professional setting … let alone a public body.  And obviously with free speech comes the need to take responsibility for what comes out of our moths.

Somehow, we suspect Corbin’s female constituents will clue him in on that “responsibility” when he stands for reelection in 2016.

He is just a typical southern Republican. Nothing women with a brain have not come to expect, from the party of ” you can’t get pregnant when you are raped unless you enjoyed it.” Sometimes it takes the Stepford wives by surprise when you hit them in the face with the opinions of the party they support. But normally they just laugh it off. Its just too confusing I guess.

Republican Bible has all the stuff in is in the Jefferson Bible left out, and all the stuff Jefferson left out of the Jefferson Bible left in. With commentary from the theological geniuses of Bob Jones University in the far right margins.

Jan February 16, 2015 at 1:01 pm

You know, what you right wingers can’t seem to understand is the difference between, viewing specific people as sex objects and demeaning an entire class of people. If a woman or a man decides to perform an exotic dance for money, that is his or her decision. Is it a good one? I think not. I think it shows a lack of self respect. Just as I think women who allow Fits News to publish pictures of them in provocative poses for men on this site to make lewd comments about shows a lack of self respect. But that is not my call. Who is taking advantage of whom in that arrangement is open for debate. Many men and women will pay for exotic dancers, and apparently there is no shortage of women and men willing to take that money. The fact that a man or woman likes to watch strippers does not indicated they view the opposite sex as having a subservient roll in society. Its like gambling and drinking, a vice.

What Mr. Corbin represents is something different altogether. He, like a significant portion of southern Republican men, politicians in particular, view women as having a subservient place in society. As people whose opinions are less important than the opinions of men. As people who are less deserving of education. As people deserving of lower pay. Their view of “family values” involves a dominant husband and a subservient wife.
Some of this is to be expected. The party is dominated by old white men; but I think until that changes any woman with a brain and who does not think of themselves as subservient to men, especially women with daughters, are crazy to vote for Republicans. Of course if you are a Stepford wife, this may mean nothing to you.

Just because someone hasn’t been found guilty of something does not mean they have done nothing.

But we should treat them as if they were innocent until found guilty.
Example: George Stinney may have killed those two little girls, but he didn’t receive a fair trial and should be considered innocent.

All sociopaths wear a mask. What this means is the person that you see, is not the person that they actually are.

A sociopath is able to be different things with different people. They have a stunning ability to quickly assess somebody and be everything that they want/need. To do this, they use charismatic charm.

Once the distempered sociopath has you hooked, the mask will slip. He will enjoy watching you confused and hurt

CHARISMATIC PSYCHOPATHS are charming, attractive liars. They are usually gifted at some talent or another, and they use it to their advantage in manipulating others. They are usually fast-talkers, and possess an almost demonic ability to persuade others out of everything they own, even their lives. Leaders of religious sects or cults, for example, might be psychopaths if they lead their followers to their deaths. Like Ovomit and Bobby Harrell, his subtype often comes to believe in their own fictions.

The terms sociopath or psychopath often bring to mind images of sadistically violent individuals such as Ted Bundy or the fictional character of Dr. Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter in the book and movie The Silence of the Lambs. But I believe the defining characteristic traits of sociopaths actually cover a much broader spectrum of individuals than most of us would ever imagine. The sociopath is that truly self-absorbed individual with no conscience or feeling for others and for whom social rules have no meaning. I believe that most all of us know or have come in contact with sociopathic individuals without even knowing it.

Corbin’s apology don’t mean shit.
He happens to be the state senator for my district (SC Senate District 12) due to the deal made by his ass hole buddy Lee Bright.
I haven’t seen his whereabouts in NW Spartanburg since he won back in 2012. I heard he did show up in Landrum some months back and I do get the obligatory Christmas card with him and his smiling wife and kids (since I vote in the Republican primaries).
A highly traveled road connecting NW Spartanburg & NE Greenville counties (which is within his senatoral district) is washed out and he knows about it.
I talked to him over the phone about the road and he was about as effective as tits on a boar hog. After that one discussion with him I knew he was a goober. TR deserves better.
Looks like he is too busy dissing women and making sure that everybody can own a gun so they can be called up the militia in case the shit hits the fan – that is the only bill I think he was the lead sponsor (reference SC Code of laws Title 25,Chapt. 1 – Military code,section 25-1-1890) to do anything about the condition of roads in NW Spartanburg & NE Greenville counties let alone much else.
Corbin and Bright are two peas in the pod and Spartanburg & Greenville Counties deserve better than these two goobers but as long as peolpe sit back and let the rightwing nuts get their way that is what you will get.
