Another Iron Lady?

You know what will not be good? Hillary Clinton getting elected and everybody saying we're "post-feminist" like we're all post-racist since we elected a black president. (#Ferguson, anyone?) HRC taking us to war with Iran, or somebody, partly because she really is aggressive (it's why I didn't vote for her last time around) and partly to appear non-weak, and that being the face of the first female president. HRC being president being used to tell us to shut up about pay inequality, job inequality, or health care inequality because "the glass ceiling has been broken".

Not to say we shouldn't elect her if she is the best, but anybody who votes for her because she's a woman should give careful thought to what kind of a woman she is.

Margaret Thatcher was a woman, too.
