There is definitely a bias towards Hillary based on her gender, however this bias is found amongst…

Oh my. I’ll give this a response despite your very incendiary tone.

  1. This article is a plea to consider candidates based on platform rather than gender. If you didn’t pick that up, I can’t help you.
  2. I would never say, and never once said, that all Bernie supporters are sexist, good greif. I’ve met some great Bernie supporters, and I’ve met some terrible ones. I’m merely pointing out that entrenched sexism is very difficult to identify unless you take a hard look at yourself and question why you hold certain attitudes.
  3. I think Steinham’s comments were deplorable (even though that was apparently her catchphrase). I don’t blindly support one candidate or another, and that was a big misstep. Please don’t “box me in” as you’re trying to do. Very frustrating.
  4. Untrustworthy? Looks like you’ve been drinking the GOP koolaid. What specific mistakes are you referencing and why do they make her untrustworthy?
  5. You really like to talk about “all.” I never said, and would never say, that “all ill spoken” about her is because of her gender. Did you even read the article? Legitimate policy criticisms are a fine reason to support a different candidate. Perceived notions of her inauthenticity, without backup, are not.
  6. Equating Hillary to Fiorina? Please. Again, let’s judge people based on their policy platforms and track record.
  7. Last, but not least, I do not support Hillary because she is a woman. I support her because she has what it take to make real change happen in this country, a great policy platform, and the fact she is female is an added bonus (but is making things a hell of a lot harder for her). If you had read the article, you would know that.
Like what you read? Give Samantha Kim Attwood a round of applause.

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