T.I., clearly you aren't voting for Hillary in the upcoming election, which is fine, but choose not to vote for her because you don't believe her stance on some issues are aligned with your own, not because she is a she. The facts are there. Women can run a country just as awesome as any man can

I am mistaken for a nurse almost every single day at work. While it is a compliment to be mistaken for a nurse (they are truly amazing and do things I never could do), the men I work with are never thought to be nurses.

When these economic elites are predominantly male -- the names of Jeb Bush's super PAC donors read like a bachelor party guest list -- this means that American public policy is disproportionately influenced by men. Decisions about whether to prioritize issues like paid sick leave, affordable child care, birth control access and equal pay are not ultimately made by the people they impact most: women.
