Sexism: Hillary squelches the Neanderthals among us

The wisdom of Hillary Clinton’s strategy for dealing with the repugnant sexists among us is to be expected. The woman has risen above sexism throughout her public career, and she brings years of experience to squelching attacks from Neanderthals in the media, government, and the public at large. She sets a good example for women of all ages trying to find their place in the world.

Sisterhood becomes even more powerful when we take a lesson from Hillary:

As her book tour winds down and she considers whether she'll make another attempt to shatter the "highest, hardest glass ceiling," Hillary Clinton spoke with Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive for the magazine's September issue

When it comes to sexists, the former secretary of state has generally maintained a policy of disengagement. Leive asked Clinton how she's managed to smile through the often malicious gender-based criticism she's received, especially during a time as tense as her 2008 presidential run. Clinton shared her "guidelines" for dealing with sexist bullsh*t.
