Just when you thought that the election couldn't possibly get any stranger (or more offensive), some pro-Trump Twitter users are now tweeting #RepealTheNinth (the amendment that gave women (finally) the right to vote) after seeing a map showing that Trump would lose if only women voted but could win if only men voted.

Attempted humor? Possibly. But after PussyGate, this doesn't play well.

Sometimes it's not wise to poke the bear.


Some Trump Supporters Demand #RepealThe19th
Some Trump supporters have taken to Twitter to demand a repeal of the 19th amendment — which in 1920 gave U.S. women the right to vote — after national polling indicated an extreme gender gap among presidential support.

On Tuesday statistician Nate Silver published models of what the electoral map would look like if only men and then women voted. Based on a demographic breakdown of recent national polls, Silver found if only women voted Clinton would claim 458 electoral votes to Trump's 80 votes.

Conversely, if only men were able to vote Trump would claim 350 electoral votes versus Clinton's 188.

The hashtag, #RepealThe19th, began trending shortly after Silver's post, with both men and women lashing out at Hillary Clinton and attacking feminism.

...because calling to disenfranchise women is surely going to gain their support.

Ooops. I see this has been reposted, but not with the particular headline I'm using.

Have asked for the mods to trash this one.

What's next after the 19th amendment? The 1st amendment? The 2nd? The 13th? Once they start repealing amendments that guarantees liberty for other people it won't end there.
