You're voting against your best interests, aren't you a feminist, you've just been brainwashed by a 25 year spanning vast right-wing conspiracy to discredit the only person standing between us and total anarchy et cetera et cetera.

...I feel dirty just writing that. Urgh.

I thought Gloria Steinem was a feminist till she accused women who were for Bernie supporters just after boys??? THAT IS SEXISM!

Some kind of identity politicking, "you're a democratic woman why aren't you with her" kind of ratfuckery. I mean, damn, I know I have a tendency to be, as a dear friend so charmingly put it, "a little nutty; a little slutty", but damn. A special place in Hell? Really? This entire cycle has shot up all of my faith in the Democratic party.

Still not there yet!

I'm still an older, poor white female, so I'm pretty sure no transgendering -- volunteer or otherwise -- is going on. But I could be wrong, I guess. Maybe I should look in the mirror more often (urgh).

And Gloria can go fuck herself. I'm still a feminist.

I don't even want the middle class money, I just want the kind of hair that I can do things with without having to risk scorching it out.

Shouldn't feel special, society props me up as if I am special though. But I know where I stand next to my fellow man and woman of any color and age. I'm no more or less.

Before that, things were pretty rough. Old enough to remember the New Deal and 90% top marginal tax rates.

feminist hard working woman. Raised my son without his biological father - his choice not mine.

Marched for peace almost got arrested at more than one political rally - one of my own making just me against some crazy antiabortionists. Best day EVER!!

I am old and a liberal and refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton who is not a feminist nor a liberal.

Wish Bernie could win. But we knew it was long odds. We started a movement. 2020 is not far off!!!
