It did occur to me that the reason more women don’t run for political office is because we take it a lot more personally when someone criticizes the sort of mother we are. I never want to be the sort of woman who rips into a woman because I have the mistaken (but common) instinct that it’s my innate right as a fellow woman, so in the interest of fairness, I’d like to slam her on some issues that haven’t touched me personally as really bad parenting. Issues that have nothing to do with the her family or gender. That’s fair.
She tried to censor books in a local library, and she’s terrified of letting the gays have their gay.
Those are biggies for me. I hope they are for you, too.
