JUST BECAUSE she is a woman

I'm so tired of misogynist turds pretending NOT to be misogynist turds by claiming, "It's sexist to support so and so JUST BECAUSE she's a woman." Then they go on about how Sarah Palin is a woman too and how many of us who support Hillary Clinton (who are clearly only doing it because she's a woman) wouldn't have supported her. ...but actually I did. I did not support Sarah Palin in the way that I would have voted for her and McCain or in the way that I agreed with her policies. I supported her in the way that I called out people's extremely sexist attacks on her. I was constantly taking my friends to task for their misogynist, rabid hatred of Sarah Palin when she was the VP candidate. Somehow, it's okay for "liberals" to be misogynist or homophobic or transphobic or whatever as long as it's against someone who is right wing. NEWSFLASH: It's not. There is a deeper problem here. It's not enough for people to disagree with powerful women. They have to utterly LOATHE and DESPISE them. It wasn't enough to say, "I just think her policies are bad and she doesn't seem bright." They had to attack her looks, her clothes, her voice, her shoes, her glasses, her children, her husband, EVERY ASPECT of her personal life, most of which are hardly ever called into question when a male candidate is involved.

With Hillary Clinton it's no different. It's the same ol' shit sandwich on a different bun. People hold Clinton to an impossible standard. They attack her clothes, her daughter, her voice, her looks, her husband, they go back over the past 30 years and look for every single vote, just to make sure she did something wrong. She hasn't voted 100% right on every single solitary issue, so we have to hate her? NO politician, male or female, has voted "right" every time, and certainly not any of the other candidates running for president. Once again, this simply is not demanded from male candidates.

Then, when you point all this out, people who don't want to admit their deep, socially ingrained, unconscious misogyny point back to you and go, "No, YOOOOOU'RE sexist! You are just voting for her because she has a vagina!"

No.

To vote for a woman who has worked for 30 years to help elevate the position of women and families is NOT sexist. No, she is not perfect. Stop asking her to be. I'm not voting for Clinton just because she is a woman, but if people want to do that, I see NO problem with it.

Why? Weeeeelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll............
-Women have been kept out of political office JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Women were kept out of voting JUST BECAUSE they were women.
-Women have been kept out of the job market JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Women have been paid unfairly when they do make it in the job market JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Women have had HUNDREDS of legal assaults on their bodily autonomy under the lie of "but the poor baaaaaybeeeeeez" JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Women have had birth control taken away from them JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Millions of girls' genitals are mutilated JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-There are 7 million child brides (that we know of) worldwide that are sold to old men JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Millions of women are sold into sexual slavery JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Thousands of women are sold or manipulated into the porn industry JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-Thousands of women are exploited and abused in the sex industry JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-There are millions of men jacking off to these women being violently assaulted, exploited, and abused JUST BECAUSE they are women.
-A confirmed rapist just got away with raping a woman because her safety and sanity (and indeed the safety and sanity of all women) are less important than some rich, white, swimmer, douche canoe's life JUST BECAUSE she is a woman.
-Similar stories happen to millions of women every day JUST BECAUSE they are women.

....but when it comes to SUPPORTING a woman taking office, suddenly, gender doesn't matter?! Seriously?!

FUCK YOU IN YOUR FACE
with a monstrously sized dildo if you believe that!
