Gun-Toting Rivals + Is HC a Feminist but Not an Intersectionalist? Or is HC Not Really Human? 

KayDaly  Take a look at Renee Ellmers’s opposition. Kay Ryon Daly is running against the Honorable Renee Ellmers in North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district. Not only is she pro-gun (obviously, and undoubtedly not an issue that divides their two candidacies), but Kay is also pro-fidelity (surprise, surprise), whereas Renee is in theory but perhaps not in practice.

Meanwhile, Rupert Murdoch’s shop (the New York Post) is, as always, very anti-Hillary Clinton. It’s been suggesting that she is not really “human.”Is it worse to be called a fem-N…, which Rush Limbaugh et al. coined during Bill Clinton’s administration in the 1990s?

Or is worse to say that Hillary is an old-fashioned feminist, and not an intersectionalist (which, to be fair, contradicts the underlying “ist” behind her two-minute official declaration of candidacy on YouTube)?

Or is it worst of all to articulate that certain Democrats and Republicans practice neotribalism (patriarchy, etc.), and can’t help being SLAMs or SCAMs?

Aren’t we getting too picky about presidential candidates if we say that Hillary’s not intersectionalist enough when she’s clearly a feminist and . . . (yes, this means you — the Millennials who made fun of Oberlin graduate Lena Dunham’s latest mouthpiece, I mean platform)?
