TIME: Hillary Clinton’s Emailgate Is an Attack on Women

In an op-ed for TIME magazine, Robin Lakoff, a professor of linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley, writes that the FBI’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified email documents during her time as secretary of state is really a “bitch hunt” attack on Clinton simply because she is a woman. “It’s not about emails,” Lakoff writes. “It’s about public communication by a woman.”

From Lakoff’s TIME magazine op-ed:

I am mad. I am mad because I am scared. And if you are a woman, you should be, too. Emailgate is a bitch hunt, but the target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us.

The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man? Clinton is guilty of SWF (Speaking While Female), and emailgate is just a reminder to us all that she has no business doing what she’s doing and must be punished, for the sake of all decent women everywhere. There is so much of that going around.

BS! I am a woman and I don't believe that. She is a crook and women crooks everywhere should be scared yes. But only if she actually goes to jail.

The author evidently has an overabundance of liberal bias and confusion. Forty years doing the same thing in the gated community of progressive academia can do that to a person.

"Emailgate" isn't about gender or about language. It's about criminality. In the case of Hillary Clinton, the criminality is a hallmark of her behavior, going back nearly forty years.

As soon as I saw her "credentials" were from Berkeley, I knew it would be something extremely wackadoodle. Get a grip, you've lost yours on reality, lady! Criminal behaviour is just that, be it man or woman. Poor widdle Hillary, dem people pickin' on her! Once a piece of crap, always a piece of crap. As a woman, I am ashamed as I can possibly be of her and others who blindly follow her simply because she's a woman. Trump that bitch!!

I had a friend try to pull the same argument on me. My response was that it is sexist to give Hillary a pass for her behavior because she's a woman.
