Feminist Gloria Steinem, who never seems to have anything nice to say about men, offered her analysis as to why men criticize Hillary Clinton in an interview with ABC News’ Cokie Roberts:
"I think actually that looking at a powerful woman made them feel -- they had been regressed to childhood, because the last time they saw a really powerful woman, they were 8. So they behaved like 8," she said.
ABC tried to offer some context as a means of explaining her strange comments, such as the fact that she grew up in an era where women often faced workplace discrimination. Yet, considering how far our nation has come, to the point where women are now CEOs, secretaries of state, attorneys general and presidential candidates, Steinem’s complaints are a bit dated.
Since Clinton is the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, she is fair game for criticism – from men or women. Just like Republicans don’t criticize President Obama’s policies simply because of his skin color, the GOP does not find fault with Clinton just because she’s a woman. They are more likely to oppose a Clinton presidency because of her failure to protect America’s national security interests.
In similar news, it is sexist to call Hillary by her last name, according to today’s feminists.
