Sexism Is Alive & Well: Double Standards, O’Donnell and Palin

Posted by on Sep 18, 2010

I am not, by an stretch of the imagination, a fan of the politics of Sarah Palin or Christina O’Donnell, who recently had that infamous victory in Delaware after being endorsed by Palin.

However, I do admire them as women, who are fighting in what is still a male dominated world. One of the most respected American (and Conservative) journalists I’ve ever met said to me the other day that they thought America was more sexist than racist.

At the moment, the media are writing a pile of cr@p about how Palin and O’Donnell are embroiled in a catfight because the latter may be stealing the former’s limelight.

Oh please. Would they be using the same pathetic, vitriolic language to describe two men? No.

Palin is a woman who supports women. I do admire that. The media should be celebrating it, not blowing it apart.
