One Instagram Post Perfectly Captures the Double Standard "Emotional" Women Face
Hormone (noun): a chemical substance that controls most bodily functions.
And recently, hormones have dominated the news cycle.
Then with Hillary Clinton, the first woman to become the presumptive nominee of a major American political party who has faced slews of backlash and scrutiny for having emotional qualities of a woman.
It turns out, according to as the.mighty.feminist's Instagram, the two might have more in common than you thought.
Here's the breakdown:
While some consider Clinton's "emotions" a flaw that would make her a bad president ...
... Hormones have a curious way of becoming an excuse for sexual criminals, who, because of their hormones, do things they can't control.
The bottom line:
A woman's capability to do something (like run the country) shouldn't be based off of her "emotions" or "hormones," especially if a man is able to use it as an acceptable excuse to do what he pleases (like assault someone).
