I am not a PUMA. I agree with the PUMA goal of calling out sexism thrown at women in politics regardless of whether the women are Democrats or Republicans. I did not support Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries. I donated money to Barack Obama, I hosted Obama campaign workers IN MY HOME leading up to the South Carolina Dem Primary, I did both canvassing and voter protection work for the Obama campaign in the primaries and the general election. I can document all of this.
My concern about the Ms. cover is that it is divisive, and seems designed to spite the 18 million people who, unlike me, voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries. Obama and Clinton have mended fences. It’s time the rest of us did. Ms. editors seem to be making trouble to get publicity, and folks like [Megan at Jezebel] are serving them well.
I’ve promoted Ms. magazine on this blog in the past, but I’m not sure I will again. It’s a small blog and Ms. probably doesn’t care one way or another, but I do. Not sure why Megan at Jezebel wants to fan the flames of controversy so desperately, perhaps someone can advise.
