Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself

There is a fantastic article on about Hillary Clinton. It's called We Bruise Out Daughters When We Bash Hillary Clinton.

But wait.

Before you go "you don't have to like Clinton to be a feminist" or "voting for Obama doesn't make me sexist" go read the article. Every word. Especially the sentence "I don't think every woman should support Hillary Clinton just because she's a woman."

It's not about unquestioningly voting for Clinton because of gender. It's about the damage caused when she is judged inconsistently with her male opponents because of her gender and how that effects little girls and their views of what they will be able to do when they grow up.

It's a fantastic article. Go read it.
