So, I’m wondering if we mothers of sons who were feminists to begin with became more radicalized and anti-war as this Iraq War has dragged on and become a living nightmare. And as a result, tended to support Obama in greater numbers.
And if mothers of daughters who were feminists to begin with tended to focus on more domestic issues and/or may have supported Clinton in greater numbers because her campaign was so historic for women. And as a result, the Iraq War and resulting quagmire was not the dealbreaker it was for others.
Huge sweeping generalization. Totally thrown off by mothers who have sons and daughters. And about a zillion other factors. But still. It’s yet another twist on this Who Feminists Vote For dead horse we love to blog so much. If I were a feminist sociologist or demographer, I might try polling around to see what answers I got.
