SC Senator: Women Are “A Lesser Cut Of Meat”

“REPUBLICAN” OFFERS SEXIST COMMENTARY … DIRECTED AT SOUTH CAROLINA’S ONLY FEMALE SENATOR

|| By FITSNEWS ||  A discussion over a pending criminal domestic violence (CDV) bill took a bizarre turn this week when S.C. Senator Thomas Corbin – a “Republican” from Travelers Rest, S.C. – offered some bizarrely sexist commentary on the role of women in the political process.

Corbin’s comments – made at a legislative dinner held in downtown Columbia, S.C. – were reportedly directed at S.C. Senator Katrina Shealy, the only female member of the 46-person State Senate.

According to multiple witnesses who attended the dinner – held at Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse on Main Street (a few blocks from the S.C. State House)  -Senate judiciary committee members were discussing the CDV issue, which has been a source of several previous headaches for the GOP.

That’s when Corbin – no stranger to making bizarre statements –  is said to have begun needling his lone female colleague regarding her gender.

“I see it only took me two years to get you wearing shoes,” Corbin told Shealy, who was elected in 2012 as a petition candidate.

Wait … what?

By way of explanation, lawmakers and legislative staffers have previously told FITS about statements made by Corbin – statements reflecting his belief that women do not belong in the S.C. General Assembly and should instead be “at home baking cookies” or “barefoot and pregnant.”

“He makes comments like that all the time to everybody – including Senator Shealy,” one Senate staffer told FITS.

Corbin’s latest comments took his sexism to a whole new level, though.

At one point in the conversation – which quickly escalated into a confrontation – Shealy is said to have angrily asked Corbin where he “got off” attacking women.

His response – overheard by numerous lobbyists and fellow lawmakers – was one for the ages.

“Well, you know God created man first,” Corbin said, reportedly smirking at Shealy.  “Then he took the rib out of man to make woman.  And you know, a rib is a lesser cut of meat.”

Ummmm …  wow.

Calls to Corbin’s office were not immediately returned, but sources close to the 50-year-old  lawmaker tell FITS his comments were part of a “running joke” between him and Shealy.

“He’s just needling her – he don’t mean nothing by it,” the source said.

KATRINA SHEALY
KATRINA SHEALY

Shealy declined to discuss the matter with FITS – citing its irrelevance to the legislative matter under discussion – but sources at the event tell FITS Corbin did not appear to be joking.  Furthermore, they added that if there really was a “running joke,” Shealy clearly wasn’t in on it.

“She got in his face,” one lobbyist who attended the event said of Shealy’s reaction, adding that at one point “we thought we were going to have to hold her back.”

Wow … good for her.

Shealy has been an incredibly substantive, consistently pro-free market reformer ever since she defeated former S.C. Sen. Jakie Knotts – a fiscally liberal,  “Republican” – in 2012.  She’s taken principled stands for taxpayers – and even taken on her former ally governor Nikki Haley when she thought it was right.

We like her  … not because she’s a woman, but because she’s a solid Senator who is strong on the issues that ought to matter to Palmetto State citizens.

As for Corbin?  He’s got a decent voting record, but the first-term lawmaker continues to marginalize himself by saying ridiculous things in public.

Maybe he’s joking, maybe he isn’t … and he’s obviously got a right to speak his mind like the rest of us … but Corbin needs to recognize right quickly that the fight for expanded individual liberty and economic prosperity is (and always should be) blind to questions of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other determining characteristic that’s got nothing to do with a person’s views on the issues.

Otherwise he will continue to be nothing but a sideshow at the S.C. State House … one with a serious problem heading into the 2016 election cycle.

RAPID REACTION >>>

I agree with much of your comment, except there really are some Republican’s who vote what is best for this country. I am a “registered” Independent and my husband is a “registered” Republican. We check the voting record of each candidate. If we feel that they are best for the county, state or country, those are the people who get our vote. We do not care about their religion, race, gender, political party or sexual orientation, only their voting record. Most Republican’s do seem to care about those things or name recognition. I have never, ever voted by name recognition. I had barely heard of Barack Obama before he ran for President but we liked what we saw when we looked at his voting record and have voted for him twice now.

Republican women are about the most self-loathing, ignorant people I know. IF they go to college it’s some religious, non-acredited ‘college’ thar teaches crap like “Jebus rode dinosaurs” they think that they are not ‘really’ people & probably should not have the vote. And for ignorant folks like them, that’ likely the only thing they are correct about.

Republicans are too stupid to realize (male or female) that unless they are multimillionaires it is f’ing moronic to vote for a Republican since all they are going to do is rob from the poor (and what’s left of the middle class) to give to the rich!

Republican women helped vote in Georg W.

I have two graduate degrees and base my vote on a critical analysis of the candidates and the issues. Emotional reactions are for birthday presents and sporting events. Please do your research, and do turn off Fox News. Canada, by the way, has just terminated Fox up there as no one was watching it.

Where in the hell did this logic come from? A comment such as this or one that resembles it in any shape, form or fashion is and would be offensive to anyone with even the slightest bit of intelligence whether they claimed to be Republican or Democrat.

His views of women are outlandish and shameful. His political party as a whole should separate themselves from him and deny any further affiliation.

Democrat women vote based on emotion and abortion? and Republican women are educated and vote based on the issues and what is best for their family? Women and Men who have any sense of right and wrong vote based upon the issues at hand and what the candidates past political history consists of and what they are capable and willing to accomplish for the good of all citizens as a whole at that particular moment in time and the possible future implications.

Candidates regardless of which party they stake claim to be affiliated with first and foremost should be more honest whether it be public or private. To campaign making promises that they have no intentions of following through with is LYING. To give in to another on an important matter to another politician because they “owe them a favor” is not right in regards to the voters who trusted them to be their voice. To write a bill that misrepresent or hides an entirely unrelated matter within is deceptive and conniving. To accept the money from lobbyist and vote yea knowing full well they should be voting nay…grant it they are there to vote at all…is irresponsible, not to mention selfish.

Political leaders of the day are not what the forefathers intended. It was not what could they as individuals could gain personally, it was what could they do for the people of their country giving them a voice. Now it does not matter in the least what real everyday needs should be addressed…it is what balance they want in their own damn bank accounts. It is disgusting.

I will tell you straight up, I believe prayer should be in schools. I also believe that the government has no business telling me or anyone else (male or female) what they can and can not do with their body. I believe that anyone who is of age should have the right to marry whomever they wish…gay or straight. I believe that everyone should have the right to bear arms and defend themselves and others when it is necessary. I believe that marijuana should not be legal. I believe that rapist and child molesters should be killed…there is no treatment for that. I believe that ISIS should be taken out period the end. I believe that all military vets should not have to deal with the red tape, they should be entitled to EXCELLENT free health care right off the bat, when returning home they should not have to worry with finances for a while and should not have to compete with illegals for employment. I believe that the border should be CLOSED and amnesty should not be given. I believe that when an illegal is deported, they should not be separated from their children and their children placed in DCFS custody then placed for adoption…rather place them with their parents and grant it their parents had not committed any illegal acts other than being illegal…given the first opportunity to come into the country LEGALLY. I believe that Obama should be IMPEACHED. I also believe that when politicians are found to be dumb as a box of rocks, corrupt or plain and simple not living up to the demands of the job they have been given…they should be held accountable and face the same consequences we all have to face…REMOVED FROM THAT POSITION OR FIRED. I also believe that when someone CHOOSES to break the law and or resist arrest or act in an aggressive or threatening manner towards an officer of the law, the officer has a split second to make a decision and if that decision is to pull a firearm and shoot resulting in that other persons death…so be it. That if I am not mistaken equates to fair shares of Democrat and Republican views…

Thays wholly untrue. It’s part of the narrative you are fed by misogynists Fox, fundamentalist preachers and hateradio.

Most females don’t give a fig about abortion – they don’t have them and don’t want them. Intelligent women and those who love them do care VERY much about their basic right
to choose to save their own lives. Men, too. They care that a government is not big enough to police pregnancies. They care about a government becoming big enough to dictate family planning. That’s for places like China. And the ALL of us know that freedom and opportunity for women means freedom and opportunity for families.

But if none of that were the case…there is one overriding reason why Democratic women cannot in conscience vote for conservatives. They are ethical, largely; and many, like the women of our family are deeply Christian. R and libertarian policies are antithetical to the teachings of Jesus – so, impossible.

parasite all money with lies and mythhs and even more ies, mountains of

so far women in politics are rocketboosing civilisation into stoneage.

biggest mistake in human history.
women are not capeable of that, especially with zero responsibility, they are the WORST decision makers.

Excellent point, CharlieChan.

HistoricalPerspective February 12, 2015 at 2:51 pm

What Charlie said. Parties realign roughly every 30 years. Their ideology is not fixed, nor is their platform and philosophy. Look at the GOP platform in the 50s. Pro-Union, pro-welfare, pro-trade tariffs, etc etc etc. It was a Republican President that said “we’re all Keynesians now.”
In 1919, half of the Democratic Party was super conservative Southerners (Blue Dog Democrats, as in “I’d vote for a Blue Dog before I voted for a Republican!”) who were still butthurt over Lincoln doing away with their free labor source. They blamed the Republican Party for the end of slavery and the Civil War. That’s why all the pro-segregationists were Democrats. At least until, like Strom Thurmond, they finally left the party and joined the GOP after they were betrayed by Southern Democrat LBJ when he gave voting rights to all those uppity colored people.
But, again like Charlie said, if you look up the definition of Liberal, expansion of rights (in this case giving the vote to women) is basically the Alpha and Omega of the ideology.
So yes, thank you liberals for giving rights to women.

So how do you explain people such as Senator Robert Byrd? A KKK recruiter, Democratic Representative from W. Virginia, 1953-1959, then a DEMOCRATIC Senator 1959-2010. Once a democrat, always a democrat. No matter how many times you try to convince yourself.

Redmond Jennings February 12, 2015 at 9:12 pm

Yeah, the Democrats used to be the party of states rights shouting, confederate flag waving, government hating rural white Southerners. If you go back far enough, most things were different.

West Virginia only elected Blue Dog Democrats, if you wanted to be elected you had to be a Democrat in West Virginia since 1930, mainly because coal miners belong to the union, and because WV dems were functionally still dixiecrats. They rarely voted progressive. Look up the record for yourself.

pmoore40 February 13, 2015 at 6:01 am

It is quite comical that dems can’t accept their party NOT being perfect. Why is that? Once you do, maybe then the US can see PROGRESS.

TiaLee13 February 13, 2015 at 1:43 pm

Hmmm…..Dems are well aware that NOTHING is perfect, including their party. But when it comes to civil rights and a fair playing field (you know, what America is meant to be), the Dems win hands down every time. Do I like everything all Dems stand for? Of course not. But the major things-the health and welfare of this country and everyone in it, civil rights, unions to protect us from corporations trying to take over, more education instead of less,-well, need I go one. Dems are trying to do all of these things and repubs fight these things all the time in every way they can. And repubs? I am talking about NOW, this day, the modern world. History means nothing if we destroy our democracy now.

pmoore40 February 13, 2015 at 9:28 am

So that is your explanation for why people such as Sen Byrd was a Democrat from 1953 – 2010? Yea, right.

lheurebleue February 13, 2015 at 12:41 pm

Once AGAIN, “Democrat” did not always mean “Liberal”. Some people joined a party because their grandfathers did. Some did so because an enemy was of the opposing party. Typical conservative; head in the sand and swearing your opponents are blinding you.

“Blue Dog Democrats” are called that because they were not Dems at all. They simply called themselves that to get elected. That sort of thing still goes on today, mostly with repubs. They register as Dems, so low information voters will vote for them. Then the tyranny begins…

Check out your own Senator Byrd, democrat from 1953 – 2010. And Btw, I am not a member of the Tea Party but I do like what they stand for.

That’s a lie. There was no “left” as we know it when the KKK was founded. And you may not be a member of the Teabaggers, but if you like them then you deserve every insult you get.

CharlieAdamsInKY February 19, 2015 at 1:12 pm

If you paid for your education in “history”, you should get your money back. Only a total imbecile – or a bought-and-paid-for meat-puppet – believes that the KKK had anything to do with “the left” or with “liberals”. The Klan started in the CONSERVATIVE wing of the Democratic Party following the Civil War, and has REMAINED solidly KKKONSERVATIVE ever since – moving to a happier home in the KKKONSERVATIVE Republican Party half a century ago. It’s telling that you imbeciles have only the one single name that can dredge out every time the topic rises, and THAT was a man who rejected and renounced the his Klan associations long ago – in stark contrast to your current crop of right-wing loons who actively court the Klan and every other White Supremacist organization.

So, you like what the TeaPubliKKKlanners stand for, huh? Why does that not surprise me in the least?

Gregory Mead February 13, 2015 at 12:41 pm

I love how conservatives push ideas that can easily be proven false by a few minutes browsing the web. From Byrd’s Wiki page:

“Byrd joined with Democratic senators to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1964, personally filibustering the bill for 14 hours, a move he later said he regretted.” … “Byrd also opposed the Voting Rights Act of 1965 but voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1968. In 2005, Byrd told The Washington Post that his membership in the Baptist church led to a change in his views. In the opinion of one reviewer, Byrd, like other Southern and border-state Democrats, came to realize that he would have to temper “his blatantly segregationist views” and move to the Democratic Party mainstream if he wanted to play a role nationally.”

and:

“On May 19, 2008, Byrd endorsed Barack Obama (D-Illinois). One week after the West Virginia Democratic Primary, in which Hillary Clinton defeated Obama by 41 to 32 percent, Byrd said, “Barack Obama is a noble-hearted patriot and humble Christian, and he has my full faith and support.”
When asked in October 2008 about the possibility that the issue of race would influence West Virginia voters, as Obama is an African-American, Byrd replied, “Those days are gone. Gone!””

and:

“Late in his life, Byrd explicitly renounced his earlier views favoring racial segregation. Byrd said that he regretted filibustering and voting against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and would change it if he had the opportunity. He said joining the KKK was “the greatest mistake I ever made.” Byrd also said that his views changed dramatically after his teenage grandson was killed in a 1982 traffic accident, which put him in a deep emotional valley. “The death of my grandson caused me to stop and think,” said Byrd, adding he came to realize that African-Americans love their children as much as he does his.”

There are other sections in the article that show that Byrd changed over the years. Now, I know that the idea of change is frightening to conservatives, but people DO change, and the fact that conservatives continue to try to bring up Robert Byrd as an example of racism in the PRESENT DAY Democratic Party is at best an example of willful ignorance, and at worst deliberately deceptive – a lie.

you are so vain February 15, 2015 at 3:07 am

Yeah, because they didn’t have the balls to do it. Instead they just put people who don’t believe the agencies should exist in charge of the agencies so that they become hollow, weak, and powerless. Ever since Reagan it’s been done to almost every regulatory and oversight agency. Oil executives in charge of Dept. of Energy, Monsanto execs in charge of USDA, the list goes on…

Colonel, you don’t understand the position of Head of the USDA. He doesn’t have to know much about agriculture. He has to be a political scientist-exactly what he is.

What’s not being discussed here is painfully obvious. The topic was domestic violence and keeping weapons out of the hands of the abusers.

It goes without saying that this man’s comments display his mysogine and ignorance, but the ripple effect throughout the abuser community will be incalculable and extremely painful (and may be deadly) to untold numbers of families.

I’m left wondering if he has a desire to retain his seat in the next election cycle.
I’m left wondering how he won a seat to begin with.

The only seat he belongs in, at this point, appears to be one in a Junior High School (or thereabouts) wherein one learns that there are men who are capable of doing certain “traditionally woman” jobs, and women who are capable of doing “traditionally man” jobs. And that in nearly all cases gender is insignificant.

Note the quotes. The problem is the word “tradition”. Yes — in the past, women were not employed in the workforce, and men left the house each day to go to work. Mr. Corbin — are you stuck in 1850? Or are you desirous of giving your opponent, next election, the entirety of the women’s vote? Or are you just a plain old stupid, chauvinistic, idiot?

I suspect the last of that trio of options. I can only hope he does NOT reflect the sensibilities of his electorate — and that they, next election cycle, will find someone who understands 3rd-millenium society.

jlmyers72 February 13, 2015 at 2:16 pm

All though I agree with the sentiment of your post, the part about women not being in the work force is not correct. Only women of the wealthy didn’t work. Women of what we now call middle class to lower class have always worked outside the home. At least in the cities. Those on the farms worked on the farm, not just in the house. My mother grew up riding a tractor wearing pants and then changed into a dress for school. Women got jobs washing laundry, they cleaned other peoples homes. They worked as maids and as cooks ( Typhoid Mary) With the industrial revolution, they worked in the factories sewing clothes, they worked in factories that wove cloth along with their children. In the 20’s-50’s they worked in offices as secretaries. During WW2 is when they moved into the factories to build what was considered “man’s” work. Bombs, tanks, etc. My grandmother was born in 1912 and she worked helping run a boarding house then during WW2 for the Warren Tank and Auto. She retired from there in 1974. So this “tradition” that he speaks of is just a myth.

I am shocked that he can put women down, especially in the workplace. That is usually called sexual harassment. “Negative comments based on the gender of a worker.” If he was my employee, that would not be allowed. Any more than I would allow a woman to put down men for their gender.
The Bible itself does not say that women are ” less than men”. It says that married couples should submit to God & to each other. This is out of mutual respect & love. To keep the couple strong.
I taught Batterers Intervention Program classes for years. The EXCUSE MOST USED FOR CONTROLLING THEIR PARTNER WAS THE BELIEF THAT WOMEN WERE INFERIOR & MEN HAD THE RIGHT TO BEAT THEM INTO BEHAVING. That is false & never gets good results. Men do not have a divine right to control women, nor are their ideas & behavior magically correct because of their sex.

First, it sounds like he crawled out from some “ole southern boy” rock in the 1940’s. I would suggest when he comes up for re-election, the women voters come out hard and strong and vote for ANYONE opposing him.

Based on the source of this story and the fact that the msm had not run this story all over the place tells me there has got to be something else to it. Frankly….I think this is just a hack piece to deflect from the real issues. If this is all the libs can muster…. God help them.

This senator is an example of an idiot, he has shown his true identity, why was he not out-ted long before this happened? I know others knew he was like this before the votes were cast. Being a Republican or Democrat doesn’t matter in this discussion, this is about his ideology which advocates domestic violence and obvious sexism. Maybe he is just showing his fear of being the TRUE lesser cut. He definitely is way to “marbled”.

A penis (aka dick), an anal sphincter(aka ass-h-le).

Probably something from your childhood.

Considering the way women in this country shit on men and fathers, using the family courts to suck men dry while alienating them from their children, I say we need to elect more men like this to help gender equality. Ladies, I understand you are not as good at math, but equal is 50/50, not 87/13 (the percentage of time men get with their children). The only time you understand 50/50 is if you are getting half a man’s paycheck. If women were nearly as independent as they like to think, stop child support, make custody time 50/50 and then see how much you can afford on your own. Want equlaity, take the front lines in the next war and earn your freedom, Oh wait……that is what men are for.

The statement he made–and the backtracking thereof–is verbal abuse.
It goes like this:
A: Make an outrageous and completely offensive statement.
B. Claim it was a joke.
C. Then if someone is actually offended, blame the offended party for not having a sense of humor.

I lived through crap like that for 9 years. Any victim of verbal abuse knows this for what it is.

i agree with him, but not his ‘argumantation’ bit simply : Just observe
women and look what they do : they bitch, the blame, the offer zero
solution, they in decades have indroduced NOTHING but laws that severely
violate human rights, all against men resp to coerce money out of men,
to gahter special privilege or to abolish responsibilities for women
resp to prevent women to ever have any sort of responsibility ( which
aready were around zero all the time ).

women : parasiting power but not taking any responsibility let alone duty, not serving noone.
parasite all money with lies and mythhs and even more ies, mountains of
lies actually, but not ontributing any.

so far women in politics are rocketboosing civilisation into stoneage.

I
agree that giving women the right to vote without earning it like a man
or taking over the same duties and responsibilities was probably the
biggest mistake in human history.
women are not capeable of that, especially with zero responsibility, they are the WORST decision makers.

etc…
nope : look around you and u’ll see women fail and introduce barbary
and destruction – especially of human rights and thus civilisation –
ONLY ! ANd they literally cannot not lie. ALl they do is parasite, lie,
parasite, spread hate and propaganda and take the money, take the money,
steal the money.

Being a former Republican elected official, for just about two decades in the Fl House, Senate and PSC Chair, I can provide that there are many R men just like him in the R party and they do not like the R women that have brains and choose to use that brain. They do, especially in the NEW Republican party of now a days, use the R women who are more Michelle Bachman types then the ones that have critical thinking ability, to somehow make this NEW R party seem more women friendly. Trust me they are not.

Admittedly, exceptions exist but those exceptions are far to rare among USA females. Generally, USA females are emotion-laden highly-indoctrinated by corporate advertising materialistic vapid child-like youngsters whose mental status is such that they should not be allowed to vote or serve on a jury.

The decline of the USA can be traced to those fatal events of 1920 when to appease the shrieking shrews the female was granted suffrage. A sad day in American history.
