    Yes, passionately wishing for Hillary Clinton to run for POTUS is just like raping her. Because lord knows politicians never play coy, and passionate supporters never try to draft them into a race.

    •  Because the only situation (0+ / 0-)

      in which a woman might say no, and be disregarded is one of potential rape.

      You're the one drawing that equivalency, not me.  I'm saying that when a woman (or anyone) says no to something, respectful behavior is immediately taking him/her at their word, and not continuing to push the issue.

      •  Sorry, I respectfully read your reasoning (0+ / 0-)

        and still find it ridiculous.  That Hillary Clinton has a problem with people vocally wishing she would run for a public office, after spending most of life in the public view, is absolutely absurd.

        So someone says something in public and we are to immediately take them at their word and not openly question them or express another opinion?  I find it hard to believe you are serious.

        And I am applying that to both sexes.  Because for you to only apply it to women doesn't even make sense.  And that IS sexist.
