The increased awareness of disability, mental illness, or the representation of women and minority groups could be grasped as the discourse of the politics of difference. Arguably, this is a good thing. I think, largely, its a good thing, in instances where we put differently abled people into the workplace doing jobs they are capable of, and not being prejudiced in any way, but their ability to do the job.
HOWEVER, just because you’re a baptist minister, doesn’t give you a good reason to be a presidential candidate for the united states; nor is being black, or being a woman.
The news from the UK hardly addresses the policies of Obama or Clinton; but there are certainly people who want to emphasise their X-ness.
This isn’t politics, this is bullshit!
On a serious point, give us an oppurtunity to know their policies, and we’ll give you an informed and genuinely democratic decision. If you don’t, call me a bitch all you like, this woman doesn’t care what you are, just what you say…
