I am talking pas- sionate white-hot hatred, the kind usually reserved for cheating exes and asshats who cut you off, forcing you to be trapped at a red light when you are already late for work. Of course Trump invokes his fair share of hate too—after all, elections polarize people—but it’s a different kind of hate. People seem more willing to accept Trump as a self-serving megalomaniac, dis- missing him with a facepalm and a headshake. Maybe because peo- ple are in denial that he has a real chance of becoming command- er-in-chief, but maybe people are less emotionally bothered by his ambition and aggression because he has a dick. Society has a history of being very critical of women in positions of power. Look at the numerous books instructing women how they should and shouldn’t be- have in the business world in order to be taken seriously. Are we judg- ing Hillary far too harshly because of her gender? Do we hold women to a higher, unfair moral standard? Unless we are talking power housed in sexuality, people do not know what to do with powerful women. Look at the prevailing ide- als in hetero society—or at least what the media says we want: women seek out wealthy men of power and men dream of supermodels and homemakers. In other words, the ‘ideal’ man is powerful and/or wealthy and the ‘ideal’ woman is hot and/or a good cook. Traditionally, power is more male-coveted. Time and time again, we are reminded that hate and prejudice emerge from fear of the unknown. Challenging a traditional notion or stereotype can make people uncom- fortable, angry, or in extreme cases, violent. Hillary is definitely not a traditional woman and she shows that women do not have to be sugar and spice and everything nice. You say: this isn’t the 1950's, women are welcome to work in whatever field they want. Well yes, but women are also expected to behave in a very specific (and confusing) way in the workplace, and if nothing else, women are still expected to be more considerate of others than men are required to be. Sometimes we don’t even realize we are subconsciously burdening ourselves with these gender stereotypes. Throughout an average day, how often do you find yourself thinking about your ap- pearance, ways to do your makeup to be more attractive or how to take ‘Is HILLARY CLINTON a Bitch?’ Women Being Criticized for Traits Highly Valued in Men By JRF Photos by Marc Nozell
