Still trying to win friends among women, the same poster said this:
Have you ever noted that when a man wants to get a laugh, he will put on a dress; when a woman wishes to be taken seriously, she will put on a man's uniform? My, my, what does that tell us?
Answer from Pigbodine: "That you watch too much Benny Hill and not enough of French & Saunders." Pigbodine also said, "So, I am not voting for Hillary Clinton. Not because of her sex or that she reminds me of my mom. I am not voting for Hillary Clinton because she does not remind me of Hillary Clinton; she reminds me of John McCain (who kind of reminds me of my dad) and George Bush (who kind of reminds me Lennie from Of Mice and Men)."
Strive (a self-described fortysomething woman) bravely laid her own mother on the line:
My mother … believes whatever Right-leaning political or social screed hits her Inbox, and happily forwards it to 20 of her friends so that she will have good luck that day. She is college-educated and is good at her job, which requires specialized skills. She reads her local paper daily and watches the news every night. But my mother is a stupid woman—my definition being that she has access to information and chooses to either ignore or reject it out of hand because considering or accepting it may require her to think critically about real issues.
She was gently upbraided in the same thread by Munich:
You make some very good points here … but you really oughtn't trash your Mom like that. One day, your mother is going to die … and you really won't like thinking back to the time you repeatedly called her stupid on a public message board. Have a great weekend.
StevieN knew what was needed:
One day, there will be [a woman candidate] and, like Obama is to Jesse Jackson, she will be to Hillary: a candidate who appeals to EVERYONE—beyond the pull of identity politics. And that one will be the first woman president.
Djg1229 had a reasonable demand: "Please let me make [my voting] decision without calling me names or imputing bad intentions to me." That decision had been reached after careful consideration: "I find her to be poorly-suited for the job." Not the only one—there was severe criticism of Hillary's "womanish leisure suits" in this thread, a phrase that caused great hilarity among posters.
