Hillary Clinton has gone from protesting that she is not asking people to vote for her simply because she is a she to going all-in on the fact she is a woman, promising an all-female ticket and avowing to paper her cabinet with vaginas.

For those still unconvinced she is playing the woman card, she is now capitalizing on that fact — literally. On Thursday, her campaign sent out an email offering supporters their very own honest-to-goodness “woman card.” The item looks like an actual credit card but is otherwise — and somewhat appropriately — worth less than the plastic it’s printed on. In fact, the souvenir has a negative value since, in order to obtain one, you have to pay out hard-earned money in the form of a campaign donation.


According to the text of the mailing:

We’ve been hearing from supporters all over the country that they’d like a ‘woman card’ of their very own — to display proudly on a fridge or pull out of their wallet every time they run into someone who says women who support Hillary must not be using our brains….

Writing at The American Mirror, Kyle Olson notes that Clinton has used her sex as “a weapon — and a shield — on the campaign trail” and provides a video compilation of occasions when she has invoked her sex as a reason to support her candidacy:
