I’ve been amazed at how blind the libertarian right is to the inherent sexism in the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling. Yes, there is a partial element of general society (not just the left… I know, I know, hard to grasp for these types) that wants this provided in their health care. But the big backlash is the gendered element, in which the Supreme Court and the family values-types seem to primarily go after programs which benefit women while turning a blind eye toward those programs which benefit men.
In light of this, it’s laughable how the libertarian right and the right generally have a hard time understanding why they can’t attract women, en masse. Ideology truly does impair the capabilities for self reflection.
