Stephen Moore On Sexism

Moore Was Openly Sexist

Moore Openly Admitted To Having Double Standards Regarding Women And Men’s Conduct

Moore: “Call Me A Sexist, But I Hold Women To Higher Standards Of Conduct Than Men.” According to Moore in Fox News, “The marchers seemed to believe that resorting to vulgarity is a measure of women’s empowerment. They seemed to be saying: Look at me. I can cuss like a sailor. The chains are off. We are liberated, because we can be as profane as the men. Call me a sexist, but I hold women to higher standards of conduct than men.” [Fox News – Stephen Moore, 1/23/17]

Moore Stated That Men, Not Women, Needed To Be The Breadwinner Of The Family. According to CNN, “In an appearance on C-SPAN in 2000, first reported by The New York Times, Moore argued that self-sufficient women were leading to a decline in the American family and said men needed to be the breadwinners of the family. ‘It’s not a good thing that black women are making more than black men today. In fact, the male needs to be the breadwinner of the family, and one of the reasons I think you’ve seen the decline of the family, not just in the black community, but also it’s happening now in the white community as well, is because women are more economically self-sufficient,’ he said. ‘So, I would like to see an increase in black earnings because black men have not closed the gap as much as black women have.’” [CNN, 4/30/19]

Moore Complained About Women Sportscasters And Suggested Women Be Removed From All Roles In The NCAA

Moore Compared The NCAA Hiring Women Announcers And Commentators To Having “Wives Attend A Bachelor Party.” According to Moore in the National Review, “Another problem is that CBS now has women announcers and commentators. Is nothing sacred? This is like having wives attend a bachelor party. CBS caters its broadcasts to the marginal fan.” [National Review – Stephen Moore via the Internet Archive, 3/13/01]

According to the New York Times, “According to Bloomberg News, Mr. Moore referred questions about the tax lien to his wife, Anne Carey, who said Mr. Moore had inadvertently deducted both alimony and child support payments to his former wife. Child support is not deductible on federal taxes. Alimony had been deductible for divorces, such as Mr. Moore’s, that were completed before the start of this year. Mr. Trump’s 2017 tax cut eliminated alimony deductibility for divorces going forward.” [New York Times, 3/27/19]

The court ordered him to sell his home to raise money to pay the debt and forced him to set up an automatic bank transfer each month.
