If I have to read another article about how some men hate Hillary Clinton for vaguely misogynistic reasons I'm going to give myself a series of tiny paper cuts with the latest copy of Ms. and rub salt in them. But lo! Rebecca Traister goes on for over 4,000 words in Salon today, parsing some young, liberal, and mostly white men's "saucer-eyed, unquestioning devotion" towards Obama and their accompanying "sharp renunciation of Hillary Clinton." It's not that Traister is wrong — some men are subtly sexist in their hatred of Clinton. The problem with this over-long essay is that Traister interviews a bunch of hyper-educated liberal women who complain about this covert misogyny, and the result is a completely myopic view of the current democratic Presidential race.
