An Observation

When I defend a conservative woman like Christine O'Donnell from misogynist attacks, inevitably I am accused of failing to see anything but her womanhood.

But the problem is not that I fail to see anything other than her womanhood; it's that her attackers fail to see her humanity.

Because she's just a woman.

That's a fun little bit of projection, now, isn't it?
