Firstly, I am not asserting or even suggesting that ALL women act, or should act, in certain ways; I am asking why "some" women act in certain ways.It is about all women. You're suggesting that women - all women - should not be conservative; according to your way of thinking, there's something wrong with women, and it applies to all women, if any of them don't yield to your political persuasion. It's this condescending, air of superiority, "I'm doing this to help you, woman. Don't you want me to help you, you helpless woman? What's wrong with you, woman? Get back in your place, woman!" mentality that makes it male chauvinistism. You're essentially speaking down to women - all women - in a "don't be conservative, or else!" tone.
Secondly, it is a general principle that people act in their perceived best self-interests, in whatever way that interest might be configured. I am asking about the thought process of certain women who do not seem to be acting in their own interest.
Thirdly, if you have some information that Republicans act in the interest of women as opposed to maintaining traditional obstacles and discrimination, present it. Otherwise, the Democratic-progressive-liberals generally own the issue of women's rights.
