Sexual politics poses more hazards than a minefield. The spin is that the GOP is pro-women and the reality is hostility, repression, and cynicism. The Trumpster can casually refer to women in the most derogatory terms "fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals" and rise to the top of the opinion polls. This is the ultimate Dumbo/Teabagger fantasy that women will vote for Dumbo candidates despite all of the sexist bombast. The most common characteristic of Dumbos/Teabaggers is a denial of reality. If this is a (fair & balanced) self-defense mechanism, so be it.
