Vice President Mike Pence became an instant target of the perpetually aggrieved left following a feature in the Washington Post on his wife, Karen.
…but leave it to a conservative woman to put things into proper perspective.
At the center of the controversy is a reference to a comment the vice president made in 2002 that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events where alcohol is served without her by his side.

Liberals lost their collective minds, pun intended, going so far as to compare Pence’s “rule” to Sharia law, although, when cutting to the chase, what truly offended the left is that Pence practices his marriage by Christian standards.
Case in point, the Huffington Post: “First, the religious guidelines that govern what ‘respect’ means to the Pences are part of a system that works to prop up male power and keep women subordinate.”
Who knew that respecting your wife makes her subordinate?
But Vox took it even further, suggesting the vice president’s belief system in practice in the workplace may be “illegal.”
That’s where The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway comes into play, answering the feminist charge that Pence’s views “allow men to view women as ‘other’ rather than equal.”
Didn't realize your career advancement required so many boozy private dinners with your opposite sex boss. Mine required literally zero.

Hemingway, recently hired by Fox News as a contributor, also appeared on her new network to espouse her views on the matter:
Turns out, Hemingway wasn’t the only woman to realize success without selling out on what’s important.
@CPLiebau right? This is … weird

@MZHemingway And more than a little pathetic. Who wants a boss who insists on boozy private dinners?! Ew.

Here’s a sampling of other responses from Twitter, to include fellow conservative Mary Katherine Ham, who tells Hemingway: “We’re doing feminism wrong.”

@MZHemingway Been with my firm for 20 years, never had dinner alone with my boss. Never out for drinks, it’s almost like we don’t know each other at all!

.@MZHemingway Lets be honest-there’s not a writer at Vox who’s career happened because of good writing. They give out kneepads at the door!

@MZHemingway Hey, could you try to be a little more oppressed? K thx

@MZHemingway The whole concept is kind of creepy to me. However, I live in the rural Midwest and must not be as woke as a writer from Slate. My bad.

That tweet should end this whole story.

@MZHemingway Strange. Mine too. And when I was the boss? Also zero boozy private dinners w staff. Almost as if they’re unnecessary.
