Time: attacks on hillary’s corruption is an assault on women

Robin lakoff, who's a professor of linguistics at the college of california, berkeley, wrote an op-ed for time magazine claiming that the fbi’s crook investigation of the democratic presidential nominee hillary clinton’s misuse of classified e mail documents is nothing greater than a “complain hunt” attack on clinton because she is a girl. “it’s now not approximately emails, it’s about public verbal exchange through a girl,” she wrote.

I am mad. i am mad because i am scared. and in case you are a female, you ought to be, too. emailgate is a complain hunt, however the target isn't always hillary clinton. it’s us.

the handiest cause the complete e-mail flap has legs is because the candidate is girl. can you consider this happening to a person? clinton is responsible of swf (talking at the same time as female), and emailgate is only a reminder to us all that she has no enterprise doing what she’s doing and have to be punished, for the sake of all first rate women everywhere. there's so much of that going around.

the humans are disturbing clinton act like moral exemplars, thundering from the pulpit like jonathan edwards or cotton mather. however donald trump, rudy giuliani, chris christie, newt gingrich, rush limbaugh and their many conservative friends are not remotely clinton’s ethical superiors. they are without a doubt bullies, using gender discrimination to present a veneer of plausibility to their accusations.

fbi leader james comey has proven himself to be another bully of the same type. he has repeatedly talked all the way down to clinton, admonishing her as a horrific determine might a five-12 months-vintage. he has accused her of “poor judgment” and known as her use of a private e-mail server “extremely careless.” if comey’s a boy scout, here’s one vintage female who will by no means let him help her throughout the street.

if the candidate were male, there might be no scolding and no “scandal.” the ones very ideas would be absurd. men have a nearly absolute right to freedom of speech. in principle, so do ladies, but that, as the creationists like to say, is handiest a principle.
