Hyperbolic much? Sure, there's some legitimate excitement about the potential for a first female president, just as there was justified excitement about a first black president -- after a long, sole history of white male presidents, this was to be expected. But the excitement would not be so profound were it not for people's genuine belief in her ability to get the job done well, based on her experiences as a lawyer, a senator and a Secretary of State -- experiences she certainly could have had with a penis.
#WhyImNotVotingForHillary Her entire appeal appears to rest solely on the fact that she has a vagina.

They both went to Yale Law School. They both had impressive careers before Bill Clinton was elected president. They're both smart, motivated, ambitious people. You can't dismiss all of her accomplishments just because Bill got into the White House first.

When you really want to dismantle a woman's credibility and undermine her authority, just start talking about her looks -- after all, that's the most important thing about her. In this world, it's the ONLY thing.

Right-wingers using the term "shrill" for Hillary are like climate change deniers saying "the science is inconclusive." You automatically prevent yourself from being taken seriously.

If calling a woman ugly isn't working for you, the next best way to undermine her power is to call her old. On men, age equals experience; on women, age equals sadness.
#WhyImNotVotingForHillary If a dishonest seventy year old Granny is the best the Democrats can do, their party is bankrupt.

Or you can just go straight for the big guns with the C word, if you really want to take yourself out of any serious political discussions (and the human race in general). If it's not okay for white people to call Obama the N word, should we really be so blase about white guys calling Hillary the C word after women have suffered oppression, rape and violence for centuries? Sexism -- the last socially acceptable prejudice.
Hillary Clinton needs to go away. Fuck that feminist cunt

If your even thinking about voting for this cunt, you need to delete yourself from my friends list. IF infact you... http://t.co/5ymhaU4DVs

We love how this one's personal Twitter image manages to incorporate homophobia (by [mis]appropriating the Human Rights Campaign's logo) into the tweet right alongside its inherent sexism.
Let Hillary know what you think of her at

Attempts at slut-shaming are such an easy giveaway of sexism.

"Cunt, whore, skank." Translation: How dare you try to rise up from your lower status and try to claim power that rightfully belongs to men and men alone!

because she's a horrible, drooling, lying SKANK who feels entitled #WhyImNotVotingForHillary -- trainwreckradio© (@trainwreckradio) April 12, 2015Ditto.
A man who's powerful, opinionated, and motivated is a good leader; a woman with those same qualities is just a bitch. Read "Lean In" for more.

No, with traditional reproduction, you can't really choose what kind of sperm (male or female) fertilizes the egg and thus determines your sex. So, you're right, being born female is not an accomplishment. But becoming a successful lawyer, senator and Secretary of State in a sexist world where women make 70-some cents for every dollar men make -- that's an accomplishment.
Reminder: Being a woman isn't an accomplishment #hillary2016

Saying you're not racist or sexist by admitting that people think you're racist and sexist doesn't make you not racist or sexist.

Ha, ha, see? Even though she's been in all these powerful political positions, she's still just doing dirty housework...because, deep down, she's nothing but a little woman.
Don't Say Hillary's Never Accomplished Anything http://t.co/qKAwUonRMv

It especially sucks when democrats resort to using the C word. Just like it sucks when women cut other women down by calling them names. MORE LIKE THIS ON EMandLO.com:
Hillary is even starting to look like that cunt from the UK Margarate Thatcher... If you want to vote for a woman vote for Elizabeth Warren.
