I appreciate your efforts, and good points but are you willing to open up to another area for awareness?
Do you see that white men have gender privilege and have been “stormtroopers” for their cause?
As a Lakota woman I am thrilled that I can vote for a woman. Do you really understand some of what Hillary has done, or are you just reading the headlines authored by misogynist conservative men? This seems extremely incongruent to talk about yourself as aware and miss this huge gap. How many women have had the opportunity to be President?
Here are your quotes:
“This is why I can’t enthusiastically get on the Hillary bandwagon. Moderate candidates like Hillary have been enabling liberal White people to delay this work of building new culture amongst “White” people for hundreds of years.”
So you don’t believe a strong and capable woman as President can impact this inequality and privilege?
Are you thinking that the women and girls that Hillary has worked tirelessly for in other countries as Secretary of State and here in the US, are all white?
The fight Clinton has worked for including: women and girls safety, health, ability to have an education, a vote and an opportunity for a voice seems to be completely missed on you.
Moyers column ran these comments .
Clinton’s sins are actually fairly standard issue for a candidate who has been in public life as long as she has.
Hillary Clinton has always been under a media microscope. They assess her pantsuits, her hairdos, her gestures, her expressions, her “grating” voice. They assume that there is always some ulterior motive or calculation to everything she says and does — as if there isn’t for any presidential candidate. Whether you like Hillary Clinton or not, she labors under the media’s presumption of guilt.
Some Hillary supporters have attributed this animus not to the media’s Clinton problem, but to the media’s woman problem. (Not at all incidentally, the biggest Hillary haters are white males.) Those supporters say that every female candidate is forced to walk a tightrope between strength and compassion, masculinity and femininity, policy and aesthetics that male candidates don’t have to walk, in part because testosterone is their birthright.
It would be helpful for gender to be seen with the same humble spotlight, with an awareness of the incredible violence, and harm done to women of all hues.
