What's wrong with this picture?
[I think I'm going to leave this sticky for a bit. The picture doesn't get any less wrong with time, and -- yes, I know this will surprise you -- the A-list just doesn't seem to be covering it. Susie did, though. --lambert]
Nothing, silly! Sure, Hillary Clinton may have been the first serious woman presidential candidate but that doesn't mean Jon Favreau, Obama speechwriter, mocking her gender (grope!) means anything. No, it's just "harmless fun" (read: misogynistic bigotry is fine by us!).
Alcohol isn't an excuse either since it doesn't cause you to be intolerant or hateful (see: Mel Gibson and his drunken anti-semitic, misogynistic tirade). Clinton is a symbol of women and girls whether she likes it or not because she was out there all alone, as a woman, seeking power so seeing this is just so...sad. Especially since he's my age and we're supposedly the generation that's less burdened by prejudice.
Clinton laughed it off, but the message is clear: being a girl or woman is a damn joke.
I'm a young man and already I'm exhausted from having to deal with misogyny--indirectly (just from the campaign season). I don't know how you women put up with this. It just doesn't stop. Ever.
