Another whiney book on something ill defined in these modern times. You see, it is not sexist to be against female politicians both directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of thousands, and hundreds of thousands, of innocents - - it is not only sexist but blatantly amoral to excuse such horrendous and diabolical behavior.
Thus people who wish to differentiate between pols like Trump, so far no deaths on his docket and Hillary Rodham Clinton --- deaths in the military coup and aftermath in Honduras, deaths in the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Ukraine, deaths in destabilized North African countries, et cetera, et cetera. [Not to mention working for FTAs which destroy lives and occupations by offshoring hundreds of thousands and millions of jobs!]
It is sexist when pathetic NPR show hosts, like John Hockenberry, prattle on about how everything will be better - - in government and on Wall Street - - when women are in charge [FYI, moronic John, many women were involved in the global economic meltdown, and the few who wouldn't take part, like their male counterparts, were summarily fired [Keysha Cooper at WaMu - - Carmen Segarra and others, et cetera]!
