Hill’s gender card not accepted

From Jonah Goldberg:

While a gaggle of female Democratic politicians and aging feminist writers and actresses have tried to gin up female solidarity, it’s largely backfired.

Gloria Steinem, a fading icon of a bygone era, said that Bernie Sanders is attracting young female supporters because they’re boy-crazy, and “the boys are with Bernie.” She later apologized.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was trotted out to issue her favorite quip: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”

Albright’s defenders note that she’s been saying this for years. And that’s true. She traditionally aimed this banishment to eternal damnation at women who undermined other women in contests for the one token woman’s position.

And that’s quite telling. While there’s surely still sexism out there, the days when women had to make do with token positions as representatives of their gender are largely behind us. Clinton herself was the third female secretary of state. No one thought she got the job because she’s a woman.

In other words, Albright, like Clinton, is a product of another age, and she sounds like it. More.

Reality check: Today, young women take the opportunity for achievement for granted. Unfortunately, fashionable victimhoods are so often marketed instead.

Sanders can probably promise bigger victimhood.

    I agree about the larger victimhood. Younger feminists probably would not admit they look at it this way, but with Clinton you are looking at the target being some tokenism. With Sanders they are getting the new SJW ideals of skewing entire systems in favour of target groups. Why would they align with the side that gets them a couple seats at the table with white men when they can shoot for one that can deny young white men an invitation to participate at all?
    I saw Susan Sarandon came out against the “vote for Clinton because she’s woman” idea. Dollars to doughnuts she would be in favour of the “I am woman, hear me roar” camp if she didn’t think Sanders would take it even further.

      Susan Sarandon is a slut in real life. I was shocked to hear what this bitch gets up to! And I have never understood the school of thought that maintains Sarandon is a hottie. I could never fuck a broad with a tired-looking face like Sarandon’s. And she looked tired and dragged out in THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW four decades ago. Today, her tits are more pendulous than they were, but her face remains that of a tired whore. Oh, and she cannot act for shit, either.
