Response to aquart (Reply #83)

85. This has NOTHING to do with gender. HRC's gender is totally irrelevant to me and you know it.

 

Does anybody here seriously think that I'd be OK with everything that the U.S. has done in the world since 2009, if only our SoS were MALE? Why does anybody think this has anything to do with HRC's genitalia at all?

The true absurdity here is that some folks have been convinced that militarism and an obsession with forcing the entire world into "free trade" agreements are progressive or even feminist things, just because the person in charge of our foreign policy is a woman.

And the REAL problem with HRC is that her approach to the world hasn't been particularly feminist...if it were truly feminist, it would be egalitarian, anti-corporate, and anti-militarist. War is pretty much ALWAYS the worst possible thing that can happen to the women and children of the world...and so are globalization and austerity. She's cherrypicked a tiny handful of "women's issues" to talk about, focusing exclusively on those that the financial and political elite don't find threatening to their power.
