Where is a woman’s home?


The Nov. 27 Metro section included the headline “In Va. race, White women came home.” Is the implicatio­n that White women’s natural place (besides the kitchen, perhaps?) is in the Republican Party?

Coming home is meant to evoke a feeling of warmth, love and support from those who raise us — in other words, a place of safety and security. Instead, coming home to the Republican Party now means returning to an abusive household, in which the so-called adults are too busy yelling epithets and sending death threats to librarians, teachers and school board members about nonsense such as book-banning, anti-science rhetoric and phantom ideology in the public schools to notice that their children are living in fear for their futures.

It’s not a home anyone should want to enter.
