Because I think it gives millions of women the message that they can be anything! as long as their husband does it first.
But since I'm a feminist I tried to hold back a little on my hillary-hating, because everyone told me feminist LOVE Hillary, and I believed them. Or, at least, didn't want to piss off too many feminists, because I think I learn a lot from them... even when I disagree with one, I still learn a helluva lot more than I ever could from an anti-feminists, because anti-feminists are just not the critical thinkers that feminists are. I will stand by that statement. But because I'm an american, and americans always believe what they hear from non-feminists even when they try not to, I thought "we" all loved Hillary Clinton and wanted her to be president because she's amazing.
Anyway this post in the lj feminist community shocks me in a good way because they don't all love Hillary like I thought, they don't even agree with Gloria Steinem. It just goes to show how incredibly awesome feminists are, and how even when I assume that I'll make them mad... I assume wrong. I'm still not crazy about Obama. I've been an engineer longer than he's held a national office, and I haven't even been promoted to group lead yet. But that's an issue we can sort out later. For now I feel good because I can write about how I don't like Hillary Clinton, her giant health care plan, her support for the death penalty, her tax hikes, her votes for No Child Left Behind, and especially the fact that she's a democratic party insider who annoys me. Being female never did make up for any of that, the way I see it, and I'm not the only feminist who says it. there.
