This is not a man-bashing reflection. What I am arguing is that anger has its proper place in the political sphere and because of this; some should not have privileged access to anger while another person's anger is dismissed.
Some of us haven't gotten past what's been ingrained in us societally -- that if a man cries, it's an honest show of emotion. If a woman even chokes up, she is a weak little girl who can't be trusted in a position of power.
It's the time of year to be thankful for what's good and hopeful about what is to come, so I will be spending the last day of 2012 and the first days of 2013 quietly hoping for the best when it comes to Hillary Clinton and her health.
