As Twitchy reported this morning, President Obama’s official campaign Tumblr literally reduced women to the sum of their girly bits. The campaign posted “vote like your lady parts depend on it.” They doubled-down on the misogyny with the slug for the post, which said “because they kinda do really.”

That’s all you are to President Obama and his staff, ladies.
The Obama campaign quietly removed the post from its Tumblr with no explanation. Hmmm. Perhaps because the backlash was immediate? Sorry, sexist pigs, but the internet is forever. Here’s a screencap:
Twitter users were outraged and let the president and his misogynist staff know, as only happy warriors can. First, #Ladyparts trended. Next came the awesome hashtag #PresidentLadyParts.

"Replace the pain of unemployment w/ the shame of indiscriminate casual sex. We're buying!" #PresidentLadyParts

#PresidentLadyParts has far too much interest in voters' vaginas for a guy who says he wants to keep hands off their bodies.

Dear Dems- just because you've taken it down, doesn't mean we'll stop making fun of it. #PresidentLadyParts

More, please, Twitter.
Others had questions:
So, do I register my lady parts separately, or how does this work?

Would voter id requirements for you #ladyparts be considered racist?

So, many decided to direct their questions and their outrage straight to the source: President Obama’s Twitter account.

Dear @BarackObama's Tumblr: I vote with my brain and not with my "lady parts." Seriously WTF?

Dear President Obama: We can see November from your misogyny.
