[Ed. – Problem!]
In case you missed it earlier Wednesday, we highlighted an Election Day piece by Tiana Lowe, who predicted that if the big blue wave didn’t happen, white women would be made the scapegoats by the Left by Wednesday. And she was right.
We’ve already done a couple of posts on the “vagina shaming” of conservative women who voted Republican, but the hits just keep coming. Here’s the Atlantic’s Jemele Hill making the exact same argument: that white women are voting against their own interests to preserve the patriarchy.
This really is the theme of the day; thank goodness CNN’s Jim Acosta gave us a distraction by trying to muscle the microphone away from a female White House staffer.
Anyway, here’s a thread by author Jill Filipovic wondering what to do about the “white woman problem.”
One question is what to do about this. i'm seeing a lot of calls for white women to come get other white women, and I agree. But I think what that analysis misses is just how divided white women are, especially by education & location (rural vs. urban especially).
