According to feminist Gloria Steinem, the only reason young women are supporting Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton is because they want to meet boys and "the boys are with Bernie". Do you find this remark to be degrading to women?

Silly girls, those boys have no money. That's why they follow the Bern.

I urge anyone who wants to vote for a female president to vote for Jill Stein.

Other than to be an obvious sexist bigot, why would you do that?

It's insulting. No intelligent person should base their vote solely on a person's gender. While I'd certainly like to see a woman in the White House, I have concerns about Hillary's honesty and judgement being overshadowed by her ambition.

I'd expect the truth to be the exact opposite.

Not to women in general (going by the text of the linked article), but to *young* women, implying it's an issue for *youth.* Still pretty insulting.

I watched through 2 ads and 2 video clips without encountering Steinham and her actual words, but interestingly, the first clip was of a Cliinton rally somewhere, and most of the visible audience seemed to be very young *women.*

Many younger women don't give a damn about all the work and sacrifice older women have done to make this world a little better. It a mother-daughter conflict.

Of course. And there was a large backlash from young feminists and women about it already. No person is infallible, nor does it mean anything associated with her is by default incorrect or wrong now.

That's my home town. If I would have known about it, I would have given her the what for.
