Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) was blasted after coming up with the latest Republican bizarre definition of a woman: “the lesser vessel.”
“We are created equal, we’re not the same,” she said last week on the Brad Stine Has Issues podcast while talking about transgender girls and women participating in girls’ and women’s sports. “Women are the lesser vessel and we need masculinity in our lives to balance that, that so-called weakness. Just us being more frail and needing that strength in our lives.”
Boebert’s comments were not well received.
“Rep Boebert is belittling the generations of women fighting for freedom to make their own life choices, whether that’s prioritizing careers, families, service or a combo,” her general election opponent, Democrat Adam Frisch, said on Twitter. “The women in my life are no less capable than the men, and I have met so many strong women in this district who I know would take issue with being reduced in the way Lauren Boebert’s comments are doing.”
“What kind of leader speaks about half of their constituency this way?”

Other people also expressed disagreement.
Lauren Boebert just said – “Women are ‘the lesser vessel’ and “need masculinity in our lives to balance that so-called weakness.”
Maybe she’s the lesser vessel but I sure as fuck am not.

Boebert is definitely a lesser vessel, but it has nothing to do with her being a woman. https://t.co/lsm3d1o4Mg

Boebert believes this. Amy Coney Barrett believes this— it’s no joke. THIS IS CHRISTO FASCISM. If you don’t want to be deemed the lesser vessel vote Democratic down ballot, all the way to the school board. NO JOKE!

I’m glad I don’t belong to @laurenboebert’s religion, to think women are “the lesser vessel” is gross and disturbing.

Lauren Boebert said women are the “lesser vessel” and “need masculinity in our lives to balance that so-called weakness.”
First of all, she can fuck off. Second of all, does this dip shit realize there is no masculinity in her party?

I would NEVER vote for a representative that considers women “the lesser vessel”. pic.twitter.com/0kBiaQVeYk
