Bernie and Unconscious Misogyny — The Beat Goes On
Laurel Brett


Thank you so much for writing this piece — I’ve experienced every type of misogynistic behavior from men (and women (in my cohort)) you have described, and the *only* variable that is attributed to this is their support for Bernie Sanders. One thing I have found telling is that when asked specific policy questions, or positions Sanders has held historically, an overwhelming amount of them have either never done the independent research to learn about their candidate (so they know nothing), or they’re operating on misinformation (but will almost certainly use verbose rhetoric to prove their “merit”).

Like what you read? Give Caitlin Dickerson a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
