Fox News Thinks Young Women Care More About Tinder Than Voting, Proving Why Most Young Women Are Democrats

By  |

Oh, Fox News. Do you ever shut up? A conversation about how women are voting in the fall midterms (Reminder: go vote on November 4!) once again veered into crazy territory yesterday when Kimberly Guilfoyle started ranting about how younger women “don’t get” larger, pertinent issues because “they’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortage, kids, community, crime, community, healthcare. They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world.”

She prefaced this rant by saying, “Young women on juries are not a good idea!” and finished with a joke about how she was just excusing young women so they could “go back on Tinder and Match.com.”

*deep breath*

On behalf of women everywhere, young and old, I beg of you, Kimberly: SHUT THE F**K UP. 

18-year-old Tavi Gevinson has produced three books, the website Rookie Magazine, and starred in movies and Broadway plays. 24-year-old Emma Watson just created a new feminist movement and spoke on the floor of the UN. 22-year-old Divya Nag founded a company that’s revolutionizing stem cell technology. 29-year-old Issa Rae is a gifted actress and writer who founded Color Creative to “increase opportunities for women and minority TV writers.”

15-YEAR-OLD MALALA YOUSAFZAI JUST WON THE MOTHERF**CKING NOBEL PRIZE.

Young women not only are focused on huge issues, they are pushing the world toward positive change. And you know what? They can do this while they check their Tinder profiles, thank you very much. This crazy narrative that young women are vapid and self-obsessed is harmful bullsh*t spewed by people too stupid to actually pay attention to the incredible work so many women are doing. If Fox News is baffled as to why young people don’t vote conservatively they should look in the mirror for the answer.

    I vote for whoever I think will do the best job. I’m primarily independent, have never voted for Obama, and I do my research before I vote.

    Having said that, it gets harder and harder to vote Republican as time goes by. I’m college educated, lean towards conservative a lot of the time, and I’m a married mother. I’m the type of voter these idiots want, but if you want to alienate me it’s all good. Personally, I’m cool with voting Democrat just to spite these idiots.

      I refuse to vote Republican or Democrat on principle, even if the candidate appeals to me. I vote for the Libertarian I like and barring that choice the Libertarian I don’t like and then I’ll vote Green, hell, give me a die-hard socialist over one of the major parties, even though it goes against my beliefs. Anything to spit in the face of a broken system.

      I don’t do this because I’m a woman who doesn’t care about the issues. I do this because I’m a woman who cares deeply about what’s going on in America. Republicans pretend to care about me but I’m not falling for that.

      Unless we’re talking about money issues, then they care about that. I mean REALLY care. Homelessness, the wage gap, race issues? Meh! But, lobbyists for the NRA want to make a substantial campaign contribution? They’re paying attention toute freaking suite and saying yes all the way to the bank. Dolla dolla bills, y’all!!! *vomit noises*

    In my own State, I wish I wish I wish that there were better candidates. This is the problem I really have. It’s not about voting for the best qualified candidate, the one most likely to speak for me as a citizen…it’s about voting for the lesser of 2+ evils and that’s just not good enough.

    • Boozy Shark Lee

      October 23, 2014 at 2:46 pm

      That is why I am not a registered voter. I refuse to pick the lesser of 2 evils. Only when I find someone I truly believe in will I vote.

      I’m in my early 30’s since I’ve been able to vote, this is how I’ve felt every election. I’ve yet to find a candidate I truly support (Maybe Elizabeth Warren?) but mostly just pick the guy who seems like he’d screw up less. Or who I agree with on the bigger topics. (FWIW, I’m fiscally conservative and socially liberal)

      Where I live, I used the process of elimination and was left with one candidate who didn’t have known ties to white supremacy, or anti-gay lobbying groups, who wasn’t out to villify people of color, and who supported womens’ access to reproductive choices.

      Finding out who stood where was fun though. I emailed all the gubernatorial candidates personally a while back. I was fairly impressed with the response rate, and actually had some really interesting conversations with a handful of the candidates, including a libertarian, a constitutionalist, and one write-in Independent whose platform was something along the lines of “Our world would be so much better if we could just be a theocracy already.”

      FYI, you were talking to a staffer, not the candidate. I interned in the office of a Representative my senior year of college and was allowed to write responses to constituents (the head of staff looked them over before signing them and sending them out.)

      Sure, I get that. But if you trust someone to write on your behalf, I should hope they would be representing you well enough, haha. One of the responses I got was from an intern who IDed himself as such; the others were all signed, candidate.

      That’s how I feel about our state’s governor’s race. I don’t like the Democrat choice but I HATE the other choice (our current reigning governor). So I consider my vote not so much for the Democratic candidate but against the current Republican one.

      And it irritates me that it comes down to that.

      It reminds me of the Southpark episode on elections: “It’s between the douchebag and the turd sandwich.” Yep, pretty much sometimes.

      Uggghhhh yesssss. That’s it exactly. We had some really good alternative candidates (one for whom I showed my support) but the “heir to the throne” won the candidacy because – easy. I swear, listening to voters here sounds like this, “Well, hon, I know this guy’s name and I ain’t never heard o’them others…so…yeah, this guy’ll do.”. *head in hands…quietly weeping*

      A friend and I were talking about our state’s gubernatorial election, and she feels the same way I do. She said “It just comes down to voting on the issues you’re the most passionate about.”

      I’m passionate about gay rights, women’s rights, and public education. So that’s where my vote tends to go.

    • KatDuck

      October 24, 2014 at 11:39 am

      The OT has some really progressive social stuff in it. Lots about caring for the most vulnerable members of society (widows and orphans), welcoming and helping immigrants, and serious consequences for any wealthy members who took advantage of the less well off. Even the stuff that reads as sketchy now (specifically rape and slavery laws) were designed to give some measure of protection and support for those victims. I’d actually be pretty chill if the Republicans DID start ACTUALLY using the Bible as their blueprint … it’d require a whooooole lot of changes to their platform, though. And they’d start looking (*gasp*) liberal.

      “If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.” – Stephen Colbert

    I do my research before voting because SHOCKER i like to know what I’m voting on. If there is no independent that lines up with what I believe, I default to Democrat. Every. Time. I will never vote Republican as long as there is blood pumping through my veins. Sadly in our ridiculous two-party system, the Democrats aren’t exactly appealing, just less revolting than the alternative…

    The thing that bothers me the most is how dismissive these hosts are toward young women. Why no mention of all the young men running around Tinder-ing with their shirts off, too carefree and drunk on hormones to care about voting or the issues? I agree no party is perfect. But this is downright insulting. Combine this with that horrible Say Yes To The Candidate ad Republicans put out, and I’m like – what kind of idiots do you think women are? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOppsQJtL2M

    Yes, it’s definitely because young women don’t “get it” that they don’t vote Republican. It’s not because conservatives say ridiculous stuff every day about how women are freeloading sluts who just want free birth control and all the abortions instead of just keeping their legs closed. It’s not because they vote against equal pay. No, it’s definitely because young women are too stupid and carefree. Know what will fix that? Marrying a man! Then they can just tell their wives how to vote and women can concentrate on the important stuff like having babies and recipes.

      Exactly. I so do not get Fox logic. If young women can’t make decisions and shouldn’t be on juries, at what age does that change? Or, does it change immediately upon putting a ring on it and popping out a baby? Explain it to me, Fox. But, you know, use simple words because I’m just a woman. smh

      My father, who I love very much, is very conservative on fiscal matters (he is very live-and-let-live on social matters like marriage equality, abortion, etc which is his saving grace), so he always votes (R). He STILL tries to tell me sometimes that my views will change once I’m older and have more experience. I’m like, Dad, I’m 35 years old, I have a husband, a kid, a mortgage, a full time job, pay taxes and all my own bills, put myself through school for 2 degrees…what else needs to happen for me to “get it” in your eyes? I love the guy, but jeez.

      I feel you. My dad is a Fox News watching Republican (so, worse). He’s horrified by his heathen liberal-as-they-come daughter, I’m sure. Last time I was home we had an argument about it and he told me I would feel differently when I started paying taxes. I was like um, I do pay taxes, and have for quite awhile. (And also, am I the only crazy person who thinks taxes are actually not a bad thing? I mean, they pay for parks, and schools, and the kind of social programs that a civilized society needs, but that’s an argument for another day I guess). Anyway, I sympathize. At what point will we be mature enough to have our own opinions, I wonder?

      The Daily Show actually did an awesome and informative piece last week talking about how in Kansas, they abolished taxes for farmers and small business owners, with the often cited conservative reason that if these business owners don’t have to pay taxes, they will use that money to hire more people. The daily show interviewed some of these guys who basically said they pocketed the money because why would they hire people they don’t need just because they have the money to hire them? So no new jobs got created and Kansas has way less money in tax revenue.

      What they don’t get, and what breaks my heart, is that many, many people on food support, medical assistance etc are the elderly. Try and tell an 89 year old to just pull himself up by the boot straps and go get a job. I work with low income elderly every single day so I am very aware of them but for people who criticize social programs they either aren’t aware or actively forget about those people.

      and maybe that’s the difference in thinking. The conservative rhetoric I always hear is “shoulda/coulda/woulda” and what my view is “well this IS what is happening, no matter what should have, could have, would have happened, this IS what it is so let’s deal with that”. Low income elderly-“they shoulda planned better” reality- “but they didn’t so now what”. Abortion/birth control-“you just shouldn’t have sex!!!” reality-“well people do so now what do you do”. It’s almost like all of their reasons are not rooted in reality.

      Mention social programs are good and Republicans yell, “Socialist!” which for some reason they think is synonymous with ” Communist”. I get scared to mention that I support social programs in certain company, but they tend to overlook the fact that Medicare is most certainly a socialist program as well as plenty others that the US has.

      but there are plenty of “social programs” they are ok with. Like you mentioned, Medicare. Also there are plenty of tax loop holes and write offs for the wealthy. Why is it when someone is wealthy and they take advantage of government programs to help benefit them financially, they are wise and savvy, but if someone who is not wealthy does the same thing they are a moocher/taker/lazy etc?

I don’t like some things my taxes pay for (bombing the shit out of innocent people) but that’s part of the deal. Vote for people who you think will make good decisions with your tax dollars. Also, when people are advocating for all public upkeep to be volunteer, I ask them when the last time they cleaned a park was.

      Exactly. Charities often struggle to get funding as it is. Eliminating taxes wouldn’t magically make everyone’s hearts bigger. In fact, when you look at the percent of people’s income they give to charity now, poor people give a greater portion than the rich already.

      Reminds me of the place in Kansas that completely eliminated the taxes on small business owners. Evidently people assumed the business owners would use that extra money to create more jobs. Imagine their surprise when the business owners simple pocketed that extra money, leaving the district with pretty much no money and completely SOL. Taxes are important.

    Maybe, and this is mere speculation, the reason staunchly republican voters seem to be getting older is that the staunchly republican base is literally getting older.
    I am thirty years old, and I am still being told my republicans what is best for me, my body, my gay friends wanting to get married, my autistic child and her education…. the list goes on. I might have been able to back some of their fiscal ideas, but they lose me when they show absolutely no social compassion to anyone who is not a rich, white, male citizen.

Just because she didn’t bother with responsibilities young does not mean that the rest of us were the same. Is she some trust fund brat?

    Just because she never has two thoughts in her head to rub together, doesn’t mean others are similarly vapid. If she could step away from the bullshit rhetoric she’s being fed, maybe she could see that young women deserve every bit of agency they’re allowed, and more.

    Huh. What a funny generalization. I was married with a mortgage by 23 and had a kid by 25. And I paid attention to politics and voted for years before that.

    Young women don’t care about paying bills, community, crime, or healthcare? On what planet? It really sucks watching women who are likely educated and know better than this sit there and sound like privileged old sexist white dudes.

    And yet…the Republicans are poised to take the Senate next month. Clearly, some women are voting for them. Either that or women aren’t voting at all. I tend toward the center, myself, but I just don’t understand how any woman could look at the things the Republican party has said and done and continue voting for them. I just don’t get it.

      That’s like a lot of people in poverty, who depend on social programs, who also always vote republican and very strongly and vocally support those candidates who do nothing but push policies that are not in any way in their best interest.
      It’s a very strange paradox.

      I think that, unfortunately, a lot of them listen to the stupid crap that their husbands are spewing and blindly agree… “You’re right, dear husband! Any woman who willingly has an abortion IS a dirty slut and our tax money shouldn’t help them to be so damn promiscuous!”

      I’ve seen it and it makes me so sad.

    Sometimes my 14 month old daughter looks down beyond her bulging baby belly at her baby lady-parts with this look of complete bewilderment that I wish I could capture and share with you all as a meme in a way that wouldn’t be considered child porn and get me banned. I promise that it is adorably relevant to this discussion—it’s all: “What is this and why is it keeping me from making informed decisions?!”

    Ok, what?

    I don’t think it is fair or accurate at all for Fox News to say young women are not interested in voting, in all honesty is young people, period. When I was in college the many students I talked to that were of voting age were not interested in following politics, and several of them didn’t even vote, and those that did, picked the more popular candidate which at my liberal arts school was Obama.

    Fast forward 4 years later I am now an adjunct professor at a different university than the one I attended. I asked my students this question for grins a while back, “how many of you will be voting in the next election now that you’re old enough?” In a classroom of about 31 kids, one or two more girls than boys, seven of them raised their hands and the others had a smattering of comments on why they either a) didn’t care too because of the political “drama” or b) would need to see who the candidates are first.

    It was pretty equally spaced between the boys and girls. Many of them just don’t care. It’s not a female issue, it’s just a youth issue.

      A youth issue that was true in 1980, 1950, 1930, and, likely, long before. Youth aren’t big voters.

    Fox news seems to thrive on uneducated and mis-educated viewers. Those people are more apt to believe the crap that they spew. I really blame Fox for some of the hatred I hear people carry on about the president. “Fair and balanced”, my ass.

    Most young women, emphasis on young, are Democrats because they are uneducated and their brains haven’t fully developed. When I was 18, I too was a Democrat. Then I matured, I educated myself on social issues, how government works and I personally knew many people conning the gov’t (let me tell you, it’s EASY) and as my brain matured and developed, starting voting Conservative and have never looked back. I’m 41 btw. Our gov’t is a sad state of affairs thanks to the man that was voted in because everyone wanted their handouts.

      You do realize that everything you’re saying is exactly what we’re talking about, right? Just because you were apparently both immature and uneducated at 18 doesn’t mean everyone is. At ten, I was more of a critical thinker than a lot of adults.

      And I hate to tell you this, but the government’s been in a “sad state of affairs” since the beginning of the 19th century. The only president who left the office with the country debt free was Andrew Jackson, and he hasn’t been president since 1837. Had it not been for FDR and the New Deal (which later became social security) the country wouldn’t exist. It’s easy to blame everything on Obama, but you do know that for most of his presidency Congress has been controlled by Republicans, right?

      I sure as hell hope so… Not to brag, but I would say I am very educated, in addition to having a family and a mortgage and paying taxes and whatever else people think makes you “mature”
      And I haven’t come across a republican I would vote for in a very long time. I do like to see what the candidates have to say and what they believe in, but when the repub party has swung so far into ridiculousville, it doesn’t leave much choice.

      The economy is important to me, but all of the attacks on social programs, on women’s rights, on the rights of other non- straight, non-white, non-rich people in this country are far more important. This plan to make the rich richer and the poor even poorer isn’t a good one.

      In a perfect world, I’d say get rid of both parties and start over with something brand new that takes the greed and corruption out of the picture… but sadly, that seems like an impossible dream.

      If you only voted for them for superficial reasons and then changed your mind as an adult that says more about you then it says about the Democrats.

      Immature and uneducated people vote all over the spectrum.

    “when Kimberly Guilfoyle started ranting about how younger women “don’t get” larger, pertinent issues because “they’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortage, kids, community, crime, community, healthcare. They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world.”

    For one, i don’t have determined “category” for politics, but I have a few Republican views. I also have a vagina and a pair of tits, so that makes me one of those women you say “doesn’t get it”. So, let me throw a few ideas your way…..where do I begin with this bullshit!?…..hey broad, you’re forgetting that MANY women nowadays do EVERYTHING you said we “don’t get”, either by themselves or in conjunction with their spouse/partner. We have women as solo “breadwinners” or “breadwinning” along with their husbands. Just to inform you, the “bread” that comes home PAYS THE MORTGAGE, BILLS, TAXES, etc. We also take care of our children (either ourselves or, for working moms like myself, via the school that WE PAY TOWARDS). The fact you used the phrase “They’re LIKE healthy and hot…” shows me you need to go back to the Barbie doll playhouse. There are FEMALES who deal with crime….they are called POLICE OFFICERS, DETECTIVES, LAWYERS, JUDGES (and many other jobs in that field). Also, there are FEMALES in the MILITARY. HEY THERE! NICE TO MEET YOU (not really, just making my point here). We also have FEMALE doctors nowadays! several of whom delivered my daughter 6 years ago, even though other medical specialties are also available for women to practice in! So, in summation, we can do ALL of these things and still be “healthy and hot”, so you got a small fraction of your bullshit right 😉
