Your Gleeful Liberal Takedown of Hillary Clinton Is Affirming Institutional Sexism

I “hate” Clinton because she is directly responsible for the deaths of countless thousands of people across the world, and she advocated for policies that have impoverished millions of people and incarcerated more Black people than were enslaved in 1850. Any sexist tropes, jokes, or arguments should be rejected vehemently and without hesitation. And it’s absolutely true that Obama, Kerry, Gore, Clinton, etc., were no better than she is. But they’re not running now — she is. We can’t simultaneously stand with both oppressed women across the world and a political elite who shares a lot of responsibility for their oppression, whether that’s Clinton or someone else.
