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.

See NCFM Wayback

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site. However you can see earlier versions and many of the extraordinary accomplishments of NCFM back to 1996 by using the WayBackMachine. In the search box type www.ncfm.org
