Generally, when we think about the MAGA attempts to strip women of their rights we think too narrowly and focus primarily on reproductive health. Of course, women’s rights are far broader and we best well remember that because a powerful MAGA influencer thinks women’s autonomy has to be reversed about 200 years, and he’s got an odd angle on how far he’s willing to go.
Ethan Schmidt says that women – at least single women – shouldn’t be allowed to own dogs, especially male dogs. It is “cringeworthy.”
And while Schmidt says that women should lose their freedom in many ways, kept out of politics, kept out of corporate America, the military, the police, the dog thing isn’t just weird, it’s an opportunity to shine a flashlight deep into the alpha male MAGA mind.
This guy says that he’s been attacked many times by male dogs owned by single women. (He allows that perhaps a married woman might be able to have a dog).
At no point does he consider whether it might be because dogs are nature’s “character-detector” and when he’s been attacked by a woman’s dog, it’s not because the woman can’t control their dog.
No. Both the woman and her dog sense Ethan’s hatred and the dog moves to defend his owner.
Dear all dogs in heaven, I hope Ethan isn’t implying any sort of sexual issues when he notes that it cringes him up.

That’s too bad.
Good looking guy, cut… put my mind, one that respects women and can keep a woman snorting in laughter over dinner, in that body and I’d probably never lack any company at night.
But if Ethan wants the best women, the smartest, funniest, cutest, and most successful… well, you don’t start out by telling her she shouldn’t be allowed in the military, the police, politics, or to own “Burt,” her precious rottweiler that jogs with her and protects her from guys like Ethan.
I am almost certain that Ethan favors people having near-unlimited gun ownership for self-protection. That’s highly ironic.
In study after study, a gun in the house is far more likely to kill a member of that household than an intruder, whether through domestic violence, an accident, or suicide.
On the other hand, the single most effective home security system is a giant WOOF in the dark behind a closed door or window! And a dog is the one “weapon” on earth that can’t be turned on the owner, which is why police use them so much.
And maybe male dogs just like to fck with Ethan generally.
He’s an ass and thinks he’s powerful enough to rule over women. Maybe dogs just get a kick out of taking him down a notch or two.
