I’m told that Hillary Clinton was the “most qualified presidential candidate ever.” Her qualifications: She married well, she has a vagina, and it was her turn. Out of the 150+ million women in the United States, somehow Hillary was supposed to be the first one elected POTUS. And the fact that it didn’t happen is somehow everybody’s fault but her own. Of course, none of this mattered in 2008, because the man who defeated her for the Democratic nomination was only half-white and therefore had a higher place in the hierarchy of victimhood.
But of course, I’m only saying all this because I’m a white man! I know this now, thanks to sociologist and presumed white male Michael Kimmel:

Who needs roads and coal and all that male-dominated stuff? That’s sexist. That’s hate speech!
Before you scoff, ask yourself this: Are you one of the world’s leading experts on men and masculinities? Can you even define the word “masculinities”? Then maybe you should shut up and listen to the white man, white man.
If obsessing over identity politics is wrong, Democrats don’t want to be right. The more you tell them that attitudes like this are why you can’t vote for them, the more convinced they are that they’re on the right track. For the next four years, they’ll continue to do their best to reelect the man they hate.
