Let me just say it’s mighty tedious that so many male political writers write off women political figures as ignorant. Male socialists defended supporting Jill Stein, despite her Zionism, massive compromises on militarism, & inability to deal with class by claiming she didn’t know anything about those issues. But they campaigned for her to be president? Now Jacobin journal (socialists of some kind or another) publish an article claiming Suu Kyi is a flower child, albeit a well-meaning but elitist & racist one, who doesn’t understand politics. The only time writers waver on the flower child depictions of women politicians is when they can use them as objects of unbridled personal hatred. At the risk of infuriating, let me say frankly that this is misogyny–& that’s putting it kindly.
