Advantages galore

Regarding “Trump’s innate sexism is an insult to all of us” (Page A15, Thursday), Ruth Marcus wants to remind us of the disadvantages female candidates face. Isn’t it time we explore at least a little bit the other side of the coin: that is, the privileges female candidates enjoy solely because of their gender? Here’s just a few examples. Hillary Clinton has never had to answer the “what did you do during the war” that dogged her husband and George W. Bush. As a woman, she is automatically excused from the expectation that she should have served her country in uniform.

Second, when female candidates are attacked personally, the omnipresent chivalrous impulse to protect women, which is just another form of sexism, rears its ugly head. Think of Clayton Williams refusing to shake Ann Richards hand after a debate during their gubernatorial race. From the outcry that followed, one would think he had punched her in the nose.

It’s high time we asked female candidates, and women in general, to address the unearned privileges granted by their gender.

Save Our Heroes

Honorable Men

The New Warrior community is a group of men who specially pride themselves on being honorable. Tim Goldich, President NCFM Chicago Chapter and author of, Loving Men, Respecting Women: The Future of Gender Politics joined that community several years ago. He came to realize just how vulnerable honorable men are to having their honor used against them. Our fate may indeed depend upon honorable conduct. To better understand how the misuse of Man’s honor is a root cause of issues and ideas found on this website you should first read Mr. Goldich’s article, The Honorable Man. It lights the way to understanding how The Honorable Man can be manipulated into becoming The Complacent Man.
