Bryan Fischer the Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association. Also the host of the talk radio program Focal Point on American Family Radio. (Where he spills his hateful, ignorant, and misogynistic rhetoric.) Recently made comments about Hilary Clinton. Did he comment on her views or her politics? Nope. None of that. He made statements about her age and how gravity will take it's toll, like it does on all women.
". . .elect an old woman to the Oval Office. . . She's just going to be too old, going to be too saggy, gravity will have done too much of its mojo on her; she's just going to look old and tired next to virtually anybody that the Republicans run out there"
Of course, Bryan cause as every woman knows once your breast start to sag a little you instantly look "saggy" and "tired". That's why we just give up and give you men all the power in the world cause we're "tired". Oh please! Look at Hilary does she look even close to being tired? If anything to me she seems to have more energy than I do and I'm not even legal age to drink yet. Though this brings up a great point. Does being saggy and tired you lazy and stupid? If so why was McCain even running in 2008?
The point I'm trying to make is that being president isn't a beauty contest. It's as if the second a women gets involved in something looks is involved. You know what I want? An average looking woman to run for president. To do whatever the hell they want without worrying about her looks. We as women stress about how we appear. If we are pretty enough to please the masses. I say who gives a damn how I look? Dealing with everyday challenges is enough; Why do I have to also add in how to I look and smell just cause I have a vagina? Yet men can go around looking as Bryan Fischer does and not worry a bit about it.
Maybe it's our own fault putting pressure on our selves and other women to fit a mold. But even that does not excuse Fischers comments. Nothing excuses them. He statement is about as dumb as me talking about old mens saggy genitals. It's a statement that has absolutely nothing to do with politics nor someones intelligence though it seems to be affecting Fischers intelligence.
No matter how they look I will support who ever runs and has most of my same values on things. At the moment that's Hillary for me. If another candidate seems better suited to me I'll support the hell out of them. Even if it's a man. Even if it's a tired man. Even if it's a saggy and tired man. In 2016 though I look forward to hearing about our first female president.
