“Feminist author Gloria Steinem had some curiously gendered things to say about women during a recent appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher: she accused young females of being insufficiently radical and only interested in Bernie Sanders because “the boys are with Bernie.”
“When you’re young, you’re thinking, ‘where are the boys?’” said Steinem. “The boys are with Bernie.”
The irony was not lost on Maher. “Oh, now if I said that… you’d swat me,” he said.”
And I thought that behavior such as shaming your gender into supporting a candidate of the same gender, regardless of issues, was what feminists wanted to move away from.
