Interesting post from Bitch Magazine about female politicians policing masculinity in male politicians. I do find it interesting that all of the women lean more to the right, which may have something to do with their deeply rooted belief of traditional gender roles? But then I remember it's politics, and personally I think they could all (left, right, everyone in between) "step up their game" but that's besides the point, really. It made me think of how many times I've made such statements, like "man up!" or "wow, that takes balls" whether it's in response to a male or female friend/family/relative.
