Women Are From Venus, Men Are From Delco

Much swooning for Bill Clinton in Delco. A lot of it from Swarthmore students.

Go figure.

I especially enjoyed this quote from Swarthmore's Jane Liefabell.

“I think there’s still a lot of misogyny in our society,” said Liefabell, an 18-year-old religious studies major... “For some reason, I think we’re able to get over the race issue more easily than we’re able to get over the gender issue.”

If that's true, I, as a practicing and proud philogynist, have a theory as to why.

People of different races, really aren't that different from one another. While men and woman really are.

Most voters aren't turned off by Hillary Clinton because she's a woman. They are turned off by her because she's HILLARY CLINTON.

After all, wasn't it a female Harvard professor who called her a "monster"?

UPDATE: Speaking of gender differences, Christina Hoff Sommers reports on an inconvenient truth at Harvard and inside it's toughest math course.

For some reason, out of 50 starting students, no women signed up. Misogyny? I don't think so. Neither does Sommers. Long piece but worth reading.

UPDATE II: Mark Steyn has a funny column about the Dems obsession with identity politics.

Money Q:

"As Ali Gallagher, a white female (sorry, this identity-politics labeling is contagious) from Texas, told the Washington Post: "A friend of mine, a black man, said to me, 'My ancestors came to this country in chains; I'm voting for Barack.' I told him, 'Well, my sisters came here in chains and on their periods; I'm voting for Hillary.'"

"When everybody's a victim, nobody's a victim. Poor Ms. Gallagher can't appreciate the distinction between purely metaphorical chains and real ones, or even how offensive it might be to assume blithely that there's no difference whatsoever."

Ms. Gallagher would fit in beautifully at Swarthmore College.

When Libs say such things, really they’re just trying to bully others into voting their way by shaming them about their notions. This is still America, home of free speech and free thought. We can still vote for or against anyone we want for whatever reason we want, regardless of how others may feel about it. Just look at the broad black racism this election season has exposed. With up to 90% of blacks in some areas going with the black candidate it is clear that blacks by and large are the ones playing race with this election. And all the apologists think this is just fine when blacks do it. While if whites, who btw, have shown they’re willing to cross the racial line in great numbers, behaved in such a blatantly racially partisan way we’d rightly be called “racists”. Sure seems the never ending scoldings about alleged racial attitudes are being misdirected at whites. Because clearly it is blacks who have failed to get the message that racism is wrong. And so much for all that blather about judging a person by their character and not the color of their skin. I guess that’s just for whites too.
So go ahead and vote for the white candidate of your choice, white folks. Sure it’s ugly, but blacks are doing it in great numbers so why shouldn’t everyone?

I’d vote for a woman or a black. Just not that woman or that black.
Heck, I’d vote for a woman AND a black if Condi Rice were running.
