9. Ridiculous.

"Attacking her looks or laugh or facial expressions is sexist."

No.

It isn't.

All of us laugh at cartoons of candidates that mock their looks; we grin at jokes the ridicule individual characteristics of candidates (those are attacks if you are on the receiving end) ... the same for virtually every high profile politician in the news.

Indeed, to accord Hillary special treatment because she is a female politician is an even worse form of bias.
