Random Thought of the Day

You know, I've heard a lot of my friends and, more so, my relatives (especially the female ones) say they want to vote for Hillary Clinton because it would be such a victory for feminism. That they'd vote for her because it would be such a boost to feminism to have a female president, regardless of whether they agree with her policies or politics. But, if you ask me and I know no one did, wouldn't it be a bigger victory if it didn't matter whether she was female or not when you voted for her? Or, more importantly, when you didn't? Otherwise, it's not ending the system of gender discrimination, it's reinforcing it by playing into the idea that there's something special about having a vagina.
