"The vagina and uterus swipes have got to stop: Killer Mike’s “uterus” comment about Hillary hurts

All Women."

Saying "a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be" prez calls all women's achievements into question, not just Clinton's

You don’t have to like Hillary Clinton, but it’s simply and demonstrably untrue that she has never accomplished anything in her life but growing a uterus. This should seem obvious, and yet these body part-obsessed accusations of female unworthiness have become a standard issue Bernie Bro jab on social media. And now the has-a-vagina-but-nothing-else-to-offer claim has been elevated to the actual Bernie Sanders campaign, courtesy of rapper Killer Mike.

At a campaign event for Sanders, Killer Mike made a lengthy speech where he casually argued that “a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president of the United States.” It’s something that female Clinton supporters get to hear every day, especially if they dare poke their heads out on Twitter or Facebook, and it continues to be a confirmation of nothing but the sexism of the person spouting this stupid line.

It’s really a double-edged sword of sexist cruelty, both reducing Clinton to her gender and insulting the intelligence of the woman on the receiving end of this slur by assuming that she, being some dumb broad, just mechanically sees another lady and goes, “Me vote lady!”

It’s such a dumb swipe that it’s impossible to believe anyone who levels this accusation could actually mean it. Surely the vagina-accusing masses realize that Clinton supporters do not, for instance, support female politicians like Sarah Palin or Carly Fiorina. The sheer self-refuting stupidity of this insult is no doubt why Sanders himself is careful to avoid saying anything like this, instead making a point that he’s fully aware that Clinton is an accomplished politician who has a lot to recommend her besides her gender.

end snip//

But the vagina and uterus swipes at Clinton have got to stop. Fine, if you want to hurt her, it’s petty and childish and illogical, but go ahead, have at it. She’s a politician and she can take it. Taking people’s uncalled-for vitriol is part of the job.

But the sexism isn’t just about hurting Clinton. When you accuse Clinton of having no value outside of a vagina and a uterus, that hurts all women.

1. Agreed!

On the up side, however, is the fact that these comments don't exactly enamor Sanders to women...and to men, like myself, who find commentary like this unacceptable.

So this very dark cloud has some silver lining. However minor.

My mother owned a construction business back in the 1980's. I've been quite used to strong women for ages now.

We should point out that my mother does not like Clinton, but she detests Trump, Rubio, Cruz, and Jeb. I still have 8 months left to work on her.

taken seriously in this mainly male-dominated country. And the fact that Sanders stood right next to KM when he spewed that sexist crap and said nothing speaks of his integrity. It is outrageous!

63. Thanks, Cha.

Now I'm hearing that the GOP has sent out emails and tweets encouraging their voters to switch Parties in Nevada on Feb. 20th to vote for a Democrat. Needless to say which one they want defeated. Ralston reports:

UPDATE, 2/18/16, 11:30 AM: Below is an email sent to GOP folks, with a link to this post, by Nick Vander Poel, a Republican activist and former AFPer. It was sent, he says, to 135 Republicans, and Vander Poel asked them to forward to others. He left out an important "not" in the missive (before "you will be arrested...".

The question is whether this goes viral or whether it affects only a few voters. I assume the latter -- there will be a fear factor -- but it's impossible to predict.


> Please forward to family and friends and fellow GOP caucus goers.
>
> I was able to confirm through a former Secretary of State elections official as well as a former County Clerk. Both said and confirmed that Republicans can show up on Saturday, February 20th and register as a Democrat if you have a burning desire. Then still be eligible to participate to caucus on Tuesday for GOP candidate of choice.
>
> What was also confirmed. The caucuses are NOT a state sanctioned election, the caucus is conducted by both parties. So this is NOT illegal and you will be arrested or fined. So put that rumor to rest.
>
> Some call this idea silly but the reality is, with low turnout the Democrat caucus is going to close and every little bit is going to help.
>
> Again, here are the details/loophole of how this is possible:


The media should all be reporting on this! Why haven't they?

27. Yep, just like he "said nothing" when his minions recently vilified one civil rights hero

after another. All his team cared about was whether a 50-plus- year- old photo of a white guy talking to a group of his fellow white college students in the safety of a campus administration building, surrounded by their textbooks and apparently on a break between classes, was or was not their "Champion of the People". Bernie just stands by and lets it all happen, a case study in passive aggressive hostility. Even John McCain had the guts to correct the woman who made a bigoted statement about Obama at one of his campaign events.

36. If you really don't know

by now, it is because you really aren't interested, haven't bothered to pay attention, are determined not to be convinced no matter what they are, are baiting HRC supporters, or all of the above. The mere fact that you come to the HCG to snark demonstrates that.

Several HRC supporters, including me, have courteously and politely posted accomplishments galore in GD-P, complete with links. We are either ignored, put down, or called "pathetic" and "lame" or worse, so I'm not playing those games any more.

The "Google" is your friend. You could begin with Wiki and move on from there. That is, if you really ARE interested.

14. I am so glad you posted this!

It has been tough to listen to these sexist jabs.
Lots of people have said that women shouldn't vote with their vaginas, including one Susan Sarandon. The thing is women (at least many of them) know what a hardship sexism is for the female gender, and watching the most qualified candidate running for POTUS having to deal with relentless sexism and still fight to continue on and get her message out there makes her even more appealing to those who get it--at least it should. It's a whole nother layer of qualification--placing her even higher above the others.
Thank you!

16. Great article!

I suppose when I cast my vote for Hillary in my state primary that it will have devolved even further. Not only will my uterus and vagina be voting, but so will my fallopian tubes! And ovaries! So, by doing the math, then I should be able to cast six votes, yes?
NOT a stab at our candidate, just to be clear.

It's a logical progression, you see. The human who owns the uterus casts the vote. The uterus casts the vote. So, right there, are TWO votes. Add the vagina, that's now THREE.

I detest this sort of rhetoric which reduces women to their reproductive organs. We are so much MORE than that. That Sanders defended the remark by not SAYING ANYTHING against it, speaks volumes to me. Yes, I say that was a defense. Why call Killer Mike on his sexist remarks? After all, Sanders himself didn't say it, even though he was RIGHT THERE when he DID. If this man truly has the best interests of women in mind in his campaign, he should have stood up and stopped the bullshit at his own rally.

Do you know why my millennial daughter, who started out as a Sanders supporter is now a Clinton supporter? I'll tell you why. The more she researched Mr. Sanders, the more she saw that he is really not the champion we need, as women. She said, flat out, that he doesn't support her own values and views, as evidenced by his own political record in Congress. Further, as a lesbian, she sees CLINTON as the candidate who will move things forward, not Sanders. When she started on her road of discovery in to the candidates, I simply asked her to research a bit more. She did. The results of her research were a change in who she supports. Yet, when it comes time for her to cast her vote?

It's the UTERUS!

I think the Bernie camp should continue to defend him when he does make stupid remarks. I think Bernie Sanders should drag Killer Mike to every rally, every town hall and every debate and continue putting him out there as a spokesperson. I want Killer Mike right up front so people can see and hear him loudly. At the end of the day, it only helps Hillary.

I can't even imagine the mind set to make them think that was alright. It shows desperation of a monumental level. I can only imagine what President Obama and First Lady Michelle think of sanders and his entourage of killermike and cornel west.

34. How can BS associate himself with people like this?

 

And now the has-a-vagina-but-nothing-else-to-offer claim has been elevated to the actual Bernie Sanders campaign, courtesy of rapper Killer Mike.

Pure Bernie bros......SMH

69. A campaign of ideas was a joke from day one.

 

The second Bernie started running, all the right wing lies and hate came roaring out of the gutter mouths of the Bernie bros like a sewer.

Ideas my ass.

38. They just don't get it!

It's not about supporting Hillary because she is a woman.

For a great many Americans, it is about supporting Hillary despite her being a woman!

That's where they need to do the self-checking!

49. A two-edged sword.

Some Bernie Sanders supporters have adopted language and stances so aggressive and so tinged by gender that the candidate himself disavowed them, declaring “we don’t want them. I don’t want that.” Yesterday, the rapper and Sanders surrogate Killer Mike came under fire for quoting a woman who told him that “a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president” — he might have noted that, the historical record notwithstanding, possession of male genitalia seems incidental, if not downright detrimental, to the duties of the presidency.

50. "quoting a woman"... BFD. can't hide behind a woman.. and, it doesn't make the woman any

less dishonorable because she's reducing all women to their private parts.

It doesn't matter the source.. killermike said it and BS just stood there.

It speaks to their scheming and says absolutely nothing about Hillary.

I swear bern's his own worst enemy.

44. The Margaret Thatcher swipe was worse, IMO.

Of all the politicians in the world he could compare her too, and he picks one that is not even from this country. Since they both have/had uteruses, I guess it was close enough

48. Bernie Sanders has allowed his campaign to reduce the US Presidency to a Uterus or a Penis.

He was 30 when he wrote his infamous "Rape Fantasy Essay" telling girls if they didn't have sex & orgasms they would get cancer.

He's apparantly surrounded himself with the same sexists that are of such ignorance.

Gloria Steinem was correct also, with proof in the newfound bernie sanders hook-up site.
Its all about sex with the bernie following, apparently.
Steinem was right.

The truth rises like cream, to the top.

perverted & sick

Now, are they voting with their p. . . . huh?

The attack on HRC's and women's genitalia is sickening.

57. Funny how we've managed to avoid talking about "Meat and Two Veg" matters

when electing Presidents for the past two hundred PLUS years!!!!

It is sexist, and it sucks, what's happening with all this Lady Parts Language.

And you-know-who, he LETS it happen. He plays the "above the fray" game, but he's like the Godfather, who never gets blood on HIS hands....he just orders the hits.

He could stop this shit, he chooses to not so do.

Watching the crap that's being done against Hillary Clinton - including the data breach - tells me that's spot on.

73. I completely agree

That Bernie's silence was telling. He fully approved KM's message.

This hurts all women and I hope they are listening to the full impact of that message.

Thanks Cha.

75. And still crickets from team Bern.

He's running a new barrage of ads here in Nevada expounding on how he's always been supportive of women. Blech. We are trying to remind the voters here just who has been a lifelong advocate, and who is the recent Democrat that doesn't get to co-op our core issues just because a D appears on the ballot by his name.

I'm always thankful to you Cha & sheshe2.

You have been missed, though none of us are here like we use to be. To toxic.

The ads he is running are dishonest after standing beside KM in silence when ALL WOMEN were so disrespected at a Bernie rally.

Thanks for your words

78. He did the same kind of thing when running against Madeleine May Kunin for Gov in Vermont..

When Bernie Sanders ran against me in Vermont

When Sanders was my opponent he focused like a laser beam on “class analysis,” in which “women’s issues” were essentially a distraction from more important issues. He urged voters not to vote for me just because I was a woman. That would be a “sexist position,” he declared.

Now he has killer mike to "take dumb swipes" at Hillary.

Thank you, she.. I knew you'd find this a very important article.. I like the way she pointed out that it hurts All Women by taking "dumb swipes" at them.

It's despicable and I can't wait until it backfires big time.
