On Becoming Anti-Bernie
Robin Alperstein

I’ll comment and recommend even though I don’t agree with it. The sexism section is where you lost me really. I was on board up until you started talking about the historic nature of her campaign versus his.

While I get that this would be a first, that shouldn’t influence us. Obama shouldn’t have either just because he and I have the same skin color. We can’t vote just because we want to see a woman win eventually, especially if we worry about that woman’s policy. For years to come her presidency could be used to keep other women out.

I don’t hate Hillary, but I dislike the argument that we need a female president because they are female, a black because they are black, a Jewish prescient simply because they are Jewish or, in Trumps case, a carrot in a wig because they are a carrot in a wig.
