Webb is a sexist
This social tightrope that women are supposed to walk has received a lot of criticism over the past few years from women who have decided to fight back against these incomprehensible and constricting binaries.This push-back is empowering, but what do you do when this same sexism moves out of social realms and into the classroom?Webb said that the Navy's "sterile" environment was being compromised by sexual relations in dorms between male and female students.He lamented that Bancroft Hall, which housed 4,000 men and 300 women, had become "a horny woman's dream."Brooks said the comment was particularly hurtful."I joined the Navy to serve," she said. The veterans said they would have expressed their outrage even if Allen's campaign hadn't helped."I want to make it very clear that I am here today not because of partisan politics, but because I want all women in Virginia to know James Webb's opinion of women, especially those who are in the armed forces," said retired Cmdr. Webb must demonstrate he can raise money to stay competitive. The importance of this choice weighed heavily on my shoulders as I realized this was the last time I would ever compete.
We have to be sexy, but not slutty or lewd; engaging and friendly, but not clingy; reserved, but not prudish; independent and strong, but not bossy and bitchy.
"It was unbelievably demoralizing to be painted as a pampered slut who was taking up classroom space and predestined to endanger the lives of the young men around her," she said."Webb, in statements issued after the news conference, said the article was written at a time when emotions were still high about the Vietnam War and the role of women in combat.
He noted that, in the essay, he applauded the advances of women in non military fields and said he could support a woman for president.
I remember the first trial round I ever competed in, years before.
The judge had complimented me for my logic and evidence, but said that, with my cropped haircut, pantsuit, and “authoritative presence,” I seemed “like a bitch.” Another judge urged me to embrace my femininity and wear taller heels and a skirt.Much like my debate experience, a lot of young women find themselves being critiqued in classroom discussions and presentations in ways that their male peers are not.
