Lindsey Graham's Latest Remarks About Women Are Turning Heads

While on the campaign trail Saturday night, Sen. Lindsey Graham made a statement he undoubtedly saw as inspirational to young American women, though many American women are, rather unsurprisingly, seeing it differently. "I want every young woman to know there's a place for you in America if you are pro-life, if you embrace your religion, and you follow a traditional family structure — that you can go anywhere, young lady," he said, according to Business Insider. The comments came after Graham mentioned his admiration for newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett: "You know what I like about Judge Barrett? She's got everything," Graham said. "She's not just wicked smart, she's incredibly good. She embraces her faith."

He then went on to suggest that any woman, as long as she is Christian, anti-choice, and embraces a "traditional" role in her family, can seek positions of power. Women all over social media failed to appreciate this sentiment and are making their dissent clear, as are men equally disgusted by Graham's suggestion.

Twitter reacts to Graham's comments with fury

One Twitter user said, "First @LindseyGrahamSC said that Black folks can do anything in SC... as long as they're conservative. Now he says young women can have a place in America if they're pro-life and come from 'traditional families.' Any other requirements we should know about, Lindsey?" While another exclaimed, "So divisive! Lindsey Graham's 18th century view of women in the 21st Century."

Billy Kristol tweeted, "Lindsey Graham: 'I want every young woman to know there's a place for you in America if you're pro-life, if you embrace your religion and you follow traditional family structure.' May I emphasize: There's a place for you in America if you're none of these." While one woman said, "Today, Lindsay Graham told women there's a place for them in America if they embrace their religion and follow 'traditional family structure'. Are y'all tired of this nonsense? All women are valid. All families are valid," while another went so far as to say, "This just in: Lindsey Graham is to American women what raw sewage is to drinking water."
