It's not whataboutism, it's bringing up a similar sentiment in a different context and despairing about the attitude.

A critical component of whataboutism is the part where you say "you are not in a position to criticize," which this person did not do.

> bringing up a similar sentiment

Killing women by throwing rocks at them because they dishonored the family is totally in the same direction of thoughts as accusing women of voting with their hearts over rationalism.


I don't like conservatives either but it's an entirely different category of messed up we're talking about.

The subject here is women not being allowed to drive, which I submit is quite similar to women not being allowed to vote.

Conservative here, I don't think taking the vote away from women is on the conservative agenda.

Take a few deep breaths.
