“Hilary Clinton is a Bitch,” said the feminist

Hilary Clinton is a bitch

There is a double standard involved when women are in power. Either a woman is liked and therefore incompetent, or is competent and therefore a bitch.

The double-headed sword. Aggression, ambition, and success are all traits needed to have power, but they are also traits that are traditionally male, masculine, and “unfeminine.”

We like women who are gentle, caring, nice, and pleasantly-tempered. But we don’t trust that woman with power. She’s not competent enough. She couldn’t handle it. She’s not strong enough. But, you know, she’s nice.

Women who are aggressive and ambitious are able to handle power, but they’re cold, mean, and a bitch. A dragon lady.  A person who might just be inherently unfeminine. (But she still has to be feminine, you know. Nice hair, smart clothes, classy makeup. Do her shoes match her belt?)

A woman cannot show emotion, because then she is hysterical, crazy, overemotional, and menstruating. And if a woman is menstruating, watch out! She might go to war with some unsuspecting country because her hormones are in a tizzy!
