An article on slate.com this morning illustrates some typical self-centered Boomer behavoir, by feminists of The Greatest (in their own mind) Generation in this case. Apparently, there are young women out there who are actually bucking the notion that they should support Hilary Clinton simply because their mothers, or someone from their mothers’ generation, instructs them to do so. Imagine that — people actually thinking for themselves, instead of merely falling into line in order that a generation of self-entitled Boomer women can “feel validated” by a woman in the White House.
The fact that Hilary Clinton is a woman is not a reason to support her, nor is a reason to not support her. She is NOT a woman candidate. She is a candidate who happens to be a woman. To label her as The Woman Candidate, which Boomers seem to be fond of doing, to themselves as well as members of other genertations, is reductive and patronizing. Not that I am against patronizing or reducing HC. I’m not at all. In fact, I’m all for it. And apparently I’m not the only one.
Note: Recent news reports are saying that Hilary Clinton’s campaign is in debt by some $10 Million. Does anyone else besides me see this as a bad omen?
