Ladies, if you’re anything like us, you’re always wondering what Mike Huckabee thinks of the things you say, the clothes you wear, and the choices you make about your body. Therefore, you’ll be interested to know that the former Arkansas governor may disapprove of your lifestyle even if you haven’t dropped an album that focuses heavily on your passion for feminism and banging your husband in limousines. In a Friday radio interview highlighted by Think Progress, the potential 2016 candidate said that while filming his Fox News show, he was shocked to hear his co-workers cursing — even the ladies! “In a business meeting that you might have in the South or in the Midwest there in Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the F-bomb and use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting,” Huckabee told host Jan Mickelson. “In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women do it.

You just are looking around saying, ‘My gosh, this is worse than locker-room talk,’” Huckabee continued. “This would be considered totally inappropriate to say these things in front of a woman. And for a woman to say them in a professional setting, we would only assume that this is a very, as we would say in the South, ‘That’s just trashy!’”

Obviously, cussing doesn’t come naturally to ladies, so Mickelson theorized that they’re using this kind of language because they think “they have to be just as debased as guys” to be seen as equals. “I think that’s part of it. It is so common that it’s not even perceived as being profanity,” Huckabee replied. “That’s what’s so amazing to me.” Vote for Huckabee if you want a president who’ll get a debilitating case of the vapors if he ever sees Sarah Silverman do stand-up.
