Interesting, pissed-off article in Slate rebutting Gloria Steinem's Hillary op-ed:
"Gender," writes Gloria Steinem on the op-ed page of the Jan. 8 New York Times, "is probably the most restricting force in American life." That is incorrect. Poverty is the most restricting force in American life. It's become somewhat unfashionable to point this out, but I don't see how it could be otherwise. Given the choice between being born poor and being born female, which would you choose?
Point taken (but of course that doesn't mean sexism doesn't exist.)
