That's nice. I'm 25, raised in a Republican household by a dad who listened to Rush Limbaugh every night and hated "feminazis". I discovered feminism when I was 9.
The Democratic party is sexist. So is the Republican (more misogynist really). So are most things in American society because we live in a racist, sexist, homophobic, creedist, xenophobic society.
What any of this has to do with Obama, whom you don't name in your post as being sexist, is beyond me. We have two major parties and only two real candidates for President. One of the major parties is misogynist, the other is as sexist as the society in which it is based. One of the candidates is sexist if not misogynist and the other candidate is neither.
I'm voting for Obama and for the Democrats because out of the two, and there's only really two choices in this country, they're the better choice.
That is where I call BS. Did Obama actively participate in most of it? No. Did he benefit from it? I believe he did. And that is why I think you didn't see any swift or sharp rebuttals from his campaign about the issue like you did about race.
And Clinton benefitted from the racism against Obama - so?
I did it because I don't believe you're a real Hillary Clinton supporter/Democrat. Which means you're a Republican trolling here.
And you said "But if the Republicans are restrained and Obama supporters self-righteously un-repentant, then the right vote will be harder to discern."
That suggested to me you were considering voting for McCain.
They think, like I do, that the attacks on Hillary were particularly vicious and sexual in nature. Not just garden variety politics. The attacks were the sort that set women's rights back. Attacks in the press, from the talking heads and on the blogs.
What does that have to do with Obama? You're not asserting that Obama is responsible for the action of his supporters and Hillary's detractors (not necessarily the same group), are you?
If so, by that same logic, I'll assert the Clintons are responsible for the racist bile of many of Hillary's supporters and Obama's detractors.
