No point trying to avoid the obvious. Several of the most recent diaries here have actually become intense and fascinating debates about the legacy of sexism after the election.
Above is a word cloud of the debate so far – around 4pm EST 15th Nov.
One of the things that Obama’s election does is move discussion of race and racism into a whole new field. Unfortunately, the equally important debate about sexism remains suppressed. Hillary’s appointment to Secretary of State will not resolve this – Madelaine Albright and Condi Rice have been there before.
So consider this an open thread to see if the Moose can find a common language to discuss this, without people feeling censored, or self censored (which is worse).
