…the sexism will play out this way: Government will start to be viewed as “women’s work.”
We already live in an era when privatization is seen as macho and strong and good while public sector endeavors, oh like public schools, are being abandoned and not taken seriously, ie: they’re “Women’s Work.”
In a double reverse back flip, I’m sorta concerned that if a women takes over the Oval Office, the sexist backlash will find sick synergy with the pro-privatization zeitgeist and a lot of the public (women are guilty of this too) will lose an earnest engagement with the office.
On the bright side: When I ran this minor concern/theory by a friend last night, he responded with the obvious rejoinder: “But, umm, Hillary’s like, a dude.”
