Gloria, Gloria….oh my Gloria…what were you thinking when you said, (I am paraphrasing here), young women are on Bernie’s side politically because they want to find boys. UMMM…bless your heart Gloria, but you are so out of touch.
Was this a put down directed at the women whom are supporting Bernie? Is this what Feminism is? To bully women into conforming to what you want them to be? I thought Feminism is to embrace being feminine and to have power in that.
We as women have choices and that means to do exactly what we want to do without society’s constraints of what a women should be or do. The old form of feminism seems to expect that women should support another woman candidate for president at all costs- this correlates to how some in society think women can’t think for themselves….women are expected to just follow. However, women, more and more, are becoming less of a follower and more of a leader. This translates to women using their own thought processes to choose for themselves. Why can’t women be capable of choosing a candidate based on their own conclusion of which candidate will do the best job?…. Not just picking someone because they are on the same XX chromosome team.
And as for only being there for the boys… Gloria, is it your view of women that their real reason for being out in society is to find a relationship? And what happens after a relationship is found- voting, socializing, working, and other reasons for getting out of the house is over because a relationship should be put ahead of one’s self. …SBIA…really…in this day and age, women don’t need to go out looking for men, they have the whole world at their fingers. One click and they can find a date, boy or girl, quicker than going to Bernie’s convention. Tsk Tsk Gloria…me thinks you are not a true feminist…but a woman that requires other women to follow you at all cost.
I am a women and believe you have the right to be what is true to you. Making the choices that are best for you, not for anyone else, man or women, and supporting other women to do the same.
Now, on to the next woman that forced me to do a double check when she said, ” there is a special place in hell for women that don’t support women”. What Madeleine!?…now we are going to hell because women do not support Hillary. Madeleine, I think you’ve been sipping too much of Gloria’s tea. Does this mean, just by virtue of being a women, I am required to support another women. No..No..No! I didn’t hear feminist screaming that we should support Sarah when she was running for Vice President of the United States. Yes, she is a women, but not the women I want to help run my country. Oh my…I have to say this….I am women hear me roar- while making up my own mind.
Women supporting women is a truly virtuous expectation. But that line is clearly defined that no woman should support another woman that is a detriment to humanity. It seems to be that some women think Hillary is dishonest. Why would any person support dishonesty?(no sex should be given a pass on that character flaw). We have enough of that in our daily lives. A ballot cast gives all citizens a secret control over one’s true conscience.
Feminism is working here ladies…women are making their own choices without the coercion of men, society or from other women. Embrace the fact that you have succeeded in doing what the movement set out to do for women- Free women from the chains of society’s expectations of women…Free to have control over their thoughts, body, religion and voting! Thank you for starting the ball rolling… the women that are truly in touch with what women are today will take it from here.
