    A surprising number of the Republican base think that the VAWA is discrimination. Of course, they say they don't advocate violence against women. And of course they do mean that. They just think that any bill that is called the violence against women act, or has anything in it that protects women differently than it does men, is nasty and discriminatory. And that the real victims of discrimination in this day and age are white males, and where is the violence against white males act?

    No, really. They talk like this. They think like this. They think that discrimination is over, and the era of reverse discrimination is here, and that the VAWA is just another way to keep the white man down.

    It's... really enlightening.
