Palin's A female Better Not Say Anything Bad About Her!!!

Just about the time I was ready to declare DU sane again they start pulling this Bullshit. I find it funny that the very reason she was chosen was her gender and yet you can't say anything negative about her because of it? How many women run for public office and beat you over the head with the fact that they are women? How many of their supporters do the exact same thing? Shit during the Democratic National Convention every time a speaker was tanking they would just shout out the word "women" just to get cheap applause. There are several reasons to despise Sarah Palin and her gender is Not one of them. But her gender won't stop me from giving her the Count treatment either. She's wrestling with the big folks now. When I refer to Ted Olson as a "cock-sucker" most men are smart enough to figure out that I am not calling all men a cock-sucker nor am I calling him that because o his gender. I call him that because He's a cocksucker. So if I refer to Palin as a Bush whore don't take it personally either. unless you are Palin... and then I don't give a shit.

Edit: Let me just say it is a minority of posters on DU I am referring to you. The ones who yell sexism no matter what you say about her.

Was that in relation to this thread, Count?

If so, I think the issue is legit to talk about, since it reflects a personal choice on her part that she would make mandatory on every other woman in the country regardless of the situation. It informs our understanding of her policy position.

Swatting at her purely based on gender per se is both a potential minefield and unnecessary. There's much in her viewpoints to assail without traipsing into sexism.

It's in retaliation to all of the threads where people are saying "you can't say that."

"Swatting at her purely based on gender per se is both a potential minefield and unnecessary. There's much in her viewpoints to assail without traipsing into sexism."

This I totally agree with. BUT when you call her out for anything and people say you are only doing it because she is a woman. That drives me nuts.

Voting for one because of their gender is wrong. Voting against one for their gender is wrong.

I guess all I am trying to say here is I won't treat her differently than I would say Mittens just because of her gender. I'll treat her like shit.

Exactly so. This is the trap I hope Biden won't fall into come debate time...holding back because he doesn't want to be seen as "beating up on" a woman.

I doubt he will, though. He had plenty of practice in the primaries being tough on Clinton.
