I know on Facebook I was subjected to story after story to see what would make me change my mind about Clinton, stories about her being in favor of GMOs, her anti-the environment, her being anti-LGBT... all of which I studied and found to be wrong, misconstrued and generally unfair as most complaints weren't apples to apples comparisons...
Since the election we've been besieged with articles looking at who voted for Trump and mostly they show frumpy looking older Red State women. Seldom if ever do these articles address why men voted for Trump. Indeed even gender neutral articles supposedly examining the Trump voter will usually feature a frumpy looking female.
It's not a question asked: why did men vote for Trump?
With all the problems we are now seeing, it's like the MS media is trying to blame women for Trump winning, while never asking why men did.
Indeed, soon after the election a woman at the NYTimes said it was women's fault that we didn't get Clinton - and some of it is - we are still trying to define sexism, flesh it out and understand what it means. But how did they know so soon after the election that white women voted for Trump? Yes there are optional exit polls but in red states, you might say you voted for someone you didn't because there are real repercussions for saying you voted one way when you really voted another. Even in extremely red states like Oklahoma, Democrats still get about 30% of the vote.
But we know there is a problem because female jurors are less likely to convict in rape cases, I have even seen comments by women that they'd never let themselves get into such a situation, and thus blame the rape victim. Women have been conditioned for a long time to not think of themselves as equals, or they may think of themselves as being equal but not the general population of women. Much of it about fitting in, much of it is about belonging, as in women choosing to have their genitals mutilated in some societies.
The worst problem though is men saying 'well more white women voted for Trump rather than Clinton', this is merely a masque to hide behind to make it okay that white men were misogynistic regarding Clinton.
The other problem is when men say: women wrote articles on why white women didn't vote for Trump, like this woman was elected by all women to speak on their behalf. That all women are basically interchangeable and therefore one woman can easily speak on behalf of all women because her experience is pretty much the same as any other woman's. In other words, women are nothing other than a stereotype.
The problem is as I see it that women aren't striving for uniformity, we are striving for individuality, and having that individuality respected by everyone, men and women alike.
We never say: a white man said this so he must speak on behalf of all white men. We usually accept what he has said as being his opinion only.
