Of Course

[Content Note: Misogyny.]

Yesterday, Meet the Press had a segment in which a panel (of three men and two women) discussed whether the criticism of Hillary Clinton's voice, tone, appearance, etc. is misogynist. Here's how the segment was teased during the show:

screen cap of Clinton during a campaign event, over which is text reading: 'Is the criticism sexist?'

Don't worry! It turns out there are studies showing that women and men are both criticized for their appearance, and it might even actually help women! Sounds legit.

For the record: Treating misogyny as though it's a matter of opinion is itself a sexist frame.
