'A bar of soap is smarter': Marjorie Taylor Greene lampooned for claiming women 'are the weaker sex'
United States Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) said in a speech at the Georgia Republican Assembly on Saturday that women "are the weaker sex" and that the Bible commands that they be subservient to men.
Greene, a QAnon-supporting conspiracy theorist who once claimed that Jewish space lasers were causing wildfires in the American West, began her remarks by taking a swipe at Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Recall that during her confirmation hearings last month, Jackson declined to answer Senator Marsha Blackburn's (R-Tennessee) demand to define the word "woman." Instead, Jackson replied that she is "not a biologist" and that as a judge, it would be inappropriate for her to opine on the matter.
"She said she's not a biologist," Greene said of Jackson. She then offered her own response.
"Let me tell you right now what is a woman. This is an easy answer. We are a creation of God," the Congresswoman proclaimed. "We came from Adam’s rib. God created us with his hands. We are – we may be the weaker sex – we are the weaker sex, but we are our partner, our husband’s wife.”

Came from a Rib? Oh that\u2019s right God forgot that Adam needed a woman. He created Adam why couldn\u2019t he just create a woman in the same manner. Then their children had incest to create more children. God is brilliant. Incest lately Marjorie?— Francis Murray (@Francis Murray) 1649110226

Women are not the weaker sex, as a matter of fact we can withstand a whole lot more pain than men, we can outsmart most men, we didn't come from a f*ing rib AND we are equals to men, not identified merely as our husband's wives but as equal partners. @RepMTG— Fight4Democracy -- Fight4Equality (@Fight4Democracy -- Fight4Equality) 1649111374

I came from no man's rib. My parents were in a 1967 Chevy at the end of my grandparents' driveway in June 1975. Half my DNA came from sperm supplied by my father's testicles, the other half was from an ovum in my mother's fallopian tubes. I am not weak.

I consider my wife to be stronger person I am and I\u2019m looking up to her. I owed my life changing experience to her. I\u2019m not going to bother show this to my wife because she doesn\u2019t need to know about what that Georgian lady says.— John of North (@John of North) 1649111872
