Is it okay to suggest that Elizabeth Warren is too shrill? By Paul Mirengoff.
It’s true that “shrill” is far likely to be used to describe a female candidate than a male counterpart. But it’s also true that “bully,” “blowhard,” and “bombastic” are far more likely to used to describe male candidates. Should these terms be off-limits?
The reality is that when women ramp up the volume, they run a much greater risk of sounding shrill than men who do. And when men go into overdrive, they run a much greater risk than women of sounding bombastic and/or bullying.
Criticizing women as a group has been off-limits for the last 50 years. PC says they can do no wrong, and everyone should be like them, especially at school.
