My Vagina Tells Me to Vote for Hillary!

I literally hate every sentence of this article in the LA Times, which spends I don't know many words rehashing the same tired astonishment that Vagina-Americans aren't inalterably drawn by their uteri to a female candidate.

The ubiquity of these stories makes me wonder if it has truly never occurred to any of the people writing, editing, and publishing/broadcasting them that women have, ya know, been voting for decades now, despite the dearth of female candidates, and they've obviously managed to develop a system for choosing a candidate irrespective of sex, given that they had no women for whom to vote. Why being offered, at long last, a serious female contender should spontaneously render obsolete our methodology for assessing candidates on the merits of their positions, I have no idea. But note to the media: It hasn't.
