In her latest column at Salon “Zombie Feminists of the RNC” Rebecca Traister asks:
“How did Sarah Palin become a symbol of women’s empowerment? And how did I, a die-hard feminist, end up terrified at the idea of a woman in the White House?”
As a white male, I try to avoid telling women and minorities what they should think, feel or do about things. Being divorced, I know from experience that even on a retail basis my advice to women was neither wanted nor appreciated. I doubt there is much market for it wholesale either.
But speaking strictly as an outsider, I think Rebecca should read The Big Tent, Violet’s latest at Reclusive Leftist:
“The idea is to create a place where we can join forces on the many issues that unite us, instead of remaining always divided by the issues that separate us.”
Makes sense to me.
But what do I know? I’m an asshole.
