Is Sarah Palin overly deferential towards men and refusing to stand up for women’s rights (such as the right to bodily autonomy)? Mle292 says:
Is there such a thing as an “Aunt Tom?
This Palin thing is all about what’s horribly wrong with our culture. Women who are stupid, pretty and willing to go along with the idea that women are inferior will excel. Intellectually brilliant women (like Michelle Obama) are to be vilified for not knowing their place.
Y’know what’s going to happen? She’s going to be in a debate with Joe Biden, he’s going to wipe the floor with her and she’s going to be portrayed as the helpless victim.
There may be something in this. After all quite a lot of male voters probably prefer women who are not thick exactly but are intellectually unthreatening.
