Geraldine Ferraro former Vice Presidential nominee and Clinton supporter has joined the club of pissed-off Hill backers. Geraldine stated yesterday that Barack Obama is "terribly sexist" and will probably not be getting her vote in the fall. Obama is a lot of things, but I don't see him being sexist. Maybe it was his defending his wife that she deemed uncalled for. It was a bit of chivalry over the top, but sexist? No. I don't see it.
I like talking about sexism. Not just because you get to say sex over and over and over again, but because a bunch of dudes will appear and prove themselves LOVERS of women in the form of equality! We all know men are all in reality sexist. No offense guys, but do you prefer a HOT woman or a SMART woman? Be honest. Most guys will undoubtedly say that they want both, but hotness before smartness for sure. What you are essentially saying is "I want a hot woman with 2 big brains!" I wasn't born on pancake day. If Hillary were Angelina Jolie she'd be gettin' the dude vote.
To me our society is far more sexist than it has ever been. Naked women are everywhere. I know it isn't the fault of men, but women do have to compete with some pretty perfect women in the media and so the surgery and eating disorders begin. Women are still sex objects and this persona does nothing to further the plight of feminists who insist that women deserve equality. Most women I see now days are walking around half naked looking for some cat calls to make their boob jobs worth it. Guys love it and act like they support women in the gender war, especially when those women are hot. While feminism still needs a page in the "things to improve in America book" women are responsible for the rest of the world taking us seriously. Skanky Hollywood actress's who make millions showing off their "talents" are what most women perceive as "making it". The achievement of equality in the year 2008 is not what Gloria Steinham had in mind when she took to the streets for the "ERA" back in the day. Too much focus on our hotness makes for a shallow and uninteresting female. I am not saying you have to be unattractive to get some gender equality, but a push-up bra, cleavage, outfits that leave nothing to the imagination and stilettos ain't screamin' "I'm qualified" to the peeps. Sex appeal is great. If you've got it flaunt it. Go on the Jerry Springer show and flash it. I am not saying ugly down sisters, I am saying quit looking like walking porn. Then the gender e-qualification can emerge for the sex that is indeed smarter than its opposite! Sorry, that was so reversed sexist.
