It’s absolutely lighting me up way the media acts like Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is over — or in trouble — because she got sick. The gender bias and double standard that still exists within American society is nauseating. Hillary doesn’t smile; she’s angry; when she’s soft and feminine she’s “not tough enough”; when she’s tough, she’s a shrill; she raises her voice, she’s too loud; if she gets get sick, she’s weak — for simply being human. We may finally be beyond the days of talking about what Hillary wears or how she styles her hair versus what Hillary Clinton said, but we are still not past modern day sexism.
No where close to it.
News flash, American media: Healthy humans still get sick. Even Presidents.
