Misogyny at Unbelievably low prices!

A small sampling of the wide array of products available from Cafepress:




I can just hear the denfenders of such apparel now, with such cases as:

"They're not anti-woman, they're just anti-Hillary!"

Uh-huh. Because the last time I checked, calling a woman a bitch, ordering her to do your domestic labor, and reducing her to body parts are about as sexist as you can get. No matter who she is.

Yeah really!! The first thing they must do with a women is to break her down into parts and make her seem like less of a threat. I could accept political critique of what she stands for, what she has to say. That's fair for all candidates, but these are just sexist cheap shots!

I know, right? That's the thing that always gets me about sexism (as well as racism, homophobia, ableism, ageism, fatphobia, etc.). That a person can claim to not be bigoted and then choose to use bigoted tactics or language to tear someone down when they have cause to dislike them.
