I wrote this after watching Clinton’s speech at the DNC this past week (but was traveling & didn’t get a chance to post it until now):
This woman had negotiated gender in ways that astonish and amaze me: to find enough strength to be taken seriously as a (male) candidate but to do so with enough gentleness to be ‘acceptably’ feminine at the same time.
She’s drawing both on the concensus quality of women & the (masculine) bombast of patriotism.
Honestly, it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to gender presentation, but this woman is now a master.
Go Hill. Change the game. Fuck the patriarchy.
