WINOs: Women in name only

Thanks, Gov. Reynolds, for your medieval opinion on what the Gilded Age Supreme Court should do next.
Just as the anti-suffrage position remained well into the 20th century, the court is now advised by Kim to negate Roe v. Wade and thus to reaffirm that women are a kind of non-entities with no right to live in their own bodies, rather they must surrender them, as required by The Man to serve as someone's patriarchal crop field.
Just so. And this is ironic, because governor-lady apparently has designs on the throne originally designed for the Orange Menace to Democracy, Trump, but in that world she would be required to appeal to the man who owned her if she wanted a pair of shoes to pad around the kitchen in.
Under Newt (remember Newt?), the upwelling vitriol of the country denigrated certain Republicans — for some will remember, in those days, we still had Republicans — but to be denigrated if they were insufficiently vindictive in their views and public remarks, and they were to be branded and cast out as RINO's — " … in name only." Today we can discover another anagrammatic species of beings, and that would be female followers who continue in support of that vestigial party, that is to say: WINO's, Women In Name Only. What an honor! What a cadre!
