Dear 'Feminists': Your Blind Support of Hillary Actually Sets Women Back!
Dear "feminists" who "care" about women:
Election 2016 has been a sad (albeit predictable) display of your slavish loyalty to a candidate who embodies political corruption. Hillary. We're talking Hillary here. Your reason for pledging such undying support? Certainly not her platform or experience. Most definitely not her charisma. No, no, you bow down and kiss the pant leg because Hillary's a woman. You excuse any and all criticisms of Hillary Clinton as blanket "sexism." You cry, sometimes actual real tears, when anyone rebukes your pantsuited queen.
Your abject weakness proves what I've always believed: modern SJW feminists do not care about "equality." Nor are you "strong" women. So stop it with the hashtags and vanity mugs. You're nothing more than whining brats who throw tantrums when things just aren't going your way. I suggest you bulk purchase boxes of Depends. And no, the government shan't provide them for you.
If you actually cared about "equality," as your oft cited mission statement of "Feminism simply means gender equality" states (which you bludgeon your critics with at every opportunity), you wouldn't put such blind support in a candidate who has flagrantly broken the law. Or who has covered up for her husband's many, many rapescapades. Allegedly.
If you actually cared about "equality" rather than write embarrassing opinions in Time Magazine blaming all of Hillary's legal woes on misogyny, you would call for Hillary's removal. Because if a man had attempted to get away with half of what Hillary is attempting, you would throw so much shade and hate, the poor bastard would be shunned from civil society for the rest of time. Rightfully so.
In fact if Hillary were a man, all that would matter to you leftist nitwits is the accusation. The seriousness of the charge. If it was even hinted that Man Hillary had tried to intimidate a rape victim into silence, you would call for his immediate removal. Or his head. As we've seen you do with Donald Trump. Or any young, white college male accused of rape at all.
But because Hillary is a she? Meh. "SHE'S OUR QUEEN. WE MUST ADVANCE THE SISTERHOOD. BECAUSE BOOBS. VAGINAS."
Ask me again why I do not consider myself a modern, SJW feminist.
You do not care about Hillary's soulless character. You do not care about her failed policies. You don't care Hillary Clinton is as fit to occupy the Oval Office as Harambe was fit to run a daycare. But Harambe Care would've given It Takes a Village a whole new meaning. What a wasted opportunity.
Instead, your blind support for a female candidate, for no other reason than she's a female, paints feminists as the very sexists you claim to hate. If it's wrong to vote for a man simply because he's a man, how is it not sexist to throw support behind a woman simply because she's a woman?
Don't worry, I'm not expecting a real answer. I know you do not have one.
Yet "because she's a she" is exactly what you supposedly "progressive" feminists, who care about "equality," are doing. Take this inane tweet from HuffPo:
Mom breaks into tears: "I got to vote for a woman for president." https://t.co/KatWSO0zpq https://t.co/dLTU34Ml3P— HuffPost (@HuffPost)1478109052.0
Seriously? Women have filled leadership roles throughout the world for quite some time. See also Margaret Thatcher of the United Kingdom in 1979. And Golda Meir of Israel. Who was Israel's FOURTH Prime Minister allllllll the way back in 1970!
But right, women need to break through the glass ceiling! For Clinton, she's using her husband's coattails to do it. Well, that and a dash of voter fraud, criminality, and blaming the deaths of four Americans on a YouTube video. GIRL POWER!
Your blind support of Madam Pantsuit isn't advancing your feminist cause. The opposite, in fact. Your wonton support of Hillary is setting women back. Why? Because you're voting with your emotions, you're voting with your girl parts. You're admitting you support Hillary Clinton for no other reason than she's a she.
Some of us ladies resent the stereotype that women are overly emotional, allowing said emotions to guide our decisions. You're celebrating that very stereotype by admitting you're getting emotional by voting for a woman simply because she's a woman.
So thanks, feminists. Thanks for setting women back. Thanks for sending the message to the entire world that you don't care a soulless, corrupt, criminal politician wins the White House. So long as she pees sitting down. As long as she's had a mammogram in her life, you just don't care what laws she's broken, whose lives she's ruined. You must have a vagina in the White House! #Equality! #ImWithHer! #EMOTIONS!
Never claim to care about "equality" or "women" again. You only care about your feelings. Congratulations for embodying the stereotype you've claimed to battle your entire existence.
