And then I asked myself: what if Hillary Clinton had been male? What if it had been Harry Clinton rather than Hillary?
- Harry Clinton would not have been blamed for his wife's sexual conduct.
- Harry Clinton would have protected their e-mail privacy just the way W. Bush did. (Both Bush administrations used insecure servers and deleted millions of emails on the way out of office.)
- Harry Clinton would have probably been complemented for their stern handling of events in Libya and Syria, and encouraged to do more.
Why did I not ask myself this question before the election?
F— the patriarchy.
Hillary Clinton is a better man than Donald Trump!
…and would Donald Trump's sexual conduct — the harassment, the alleged rapes — have been excused if she were Donna Trump?
(2016-11-27 changed the masculine version of Clinton's name to "Harry" from "Hilliard" for the sake of readability.)
