    •  I do too (0+ / 0-)

      What does that have to do with it?

      Plenty of women are sexist.

      You wouldn't think commenting on "uppity blacks" and deciding they are too emotional or uppity or whatever to be president if they express disappointment would be offensive???

      I do.

      •  Binna, what is your point? (0+ / 0-)

        You may think you are being clear, but you are not.

        First, a reference to "uppity blacks" is of a completely different nature and spirit than to refer to a woman's bitterness (or having been scorned), which is merely an observation of what may be true.

        An observation about a woman, or a certain particular group of women, as BITTER, is not an insult, if accurate, it is merely a statement/ observation of what may be a fact. And, the suggestion that a solidarity of bitterness is a possible justification for someone's irrational blind forgiveness of Hillary's blatant and complete utter lack of integrity, honor, honesty, and respect ... may, in fact, be true, though the person I was speaking with was a male, which is what was a bit shocking, since I might expect a female solidarity (irrespective of the bitterness, which may or may not be the driving force.)

        Now, maybe bitterness was the true cause of Hillary's despicable deplorable lack of moral fiber, maybe not, but Hillary's lack of integrity was the topic of my thread, not her possible bitterness, ...

        But, then, on the other hand, to merely make reference to blacks and to label them as "uppity" is, in fact, an insult because it has no basis in any real possible objective fact, other than, as we all know, a direct reference/implication that the black person is a second class citizen ... which is obviously a reference to the blight of slavery in our country.
