Sonia Sotomayor & Sexism: The More Things Stay the Same

Feminism, Women in Politics

Thought we were done with how men in the media find as many disparaging ways to talk about women as possible? No, I didn’t either.

Just as the MSM found lots of subtle and not-so-subtle ways to express their feelings that women just aren’t as smart or as qualified as with their ongoing sexist comments about  Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, Judge Sonia Sotomayor has given them a fresh chance to brush off all those old, and some new, ways to tell anyone who’s watching — including our kids — that girls just aren’t good enough.

I’m thinking that if Pat Buchanan doesn’t believe that it’s possible for four women to be on the SCOTUS finalist list as the best qualified, he doesn’t want to appear before the Canadian Supreme Court — it’s got four women AND it’s Chief Justice is a woman!

Quel horreur!  Why, the next thing you know, us uppity chicks will think that we should have parity in all things!  Now where is THAT in the Constitution?

    Part of the problem is you’re taking Pat freaking Buchanan seriously. Trust me on this, nobody takes him seriously. He’s a few fries short of a happy meal.

    You may as well get nutrition advice from Michael Moore or parenting advice from Maureen Dowd.

    There are whacked-out women too (cough, Randi Rhodes, cough) but when you stop to consider the source you don’t get too bothered about what is said.

    Or, you can stereotype and be deluded into believing that all men think just like Pat Buchanan does. Whatever works for you.
