2. Right?

Women are made to feel guilty, or bad, for winning.

News reporters today were saying that Bernie should be proud because he ran a "heroic" campaign. I honestly can't remember (or fathom) them saying that about Clinton in '08. The general impression the news gave about her in '08 was that she was "greedy" and "grasping" in a very unflattering and desperate way.

Now we see that, even when she wins, people consider her to be "rubbing it in" for her to openly celebrate her historic achievement. So screw it - if we're going to be wrong no matter what we do, we might as well do what we want.
