Experts: Hillary Needs to Appear Less Angry, More Human

Um, yeah. A chorus of pundits criticize her angry, stern, shouty tone.

And they didn't even mention the (possibly contact-lens-colored) glare of her eyes, jumping out of her skull like they were set on cocaine-springs.

"I think a lot of it with Hillary Clinton has to do with style and delivery, oddly enough," Woodward said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "She shouts. There is something unrelaxed about the way she is communicating."

...

"I'm sorry to dwell on the tone issue, but there's something here where Hillary Clinton suggests she's almost not comfortable with herself," Woodward said. "And, you know, self acceptance is something you communicate on television."

Well, that's some real #BernieBro mansplaining, Bob.

You will not be surprised to note that the Social Justice Warriors at Vox objected to anyone having any criticisms of an (objectively poorly-performing) female candidate).

Research shows that people perceive women differently based on their gender. This is true for Clinton, and it's true for women generally. That idea should be a lot less controversial than it often turns out to be, as evidenced by the explosion when Dean dared to suggest that maybe subtle sexism was at work.

Even though women are interrupted more often and talk less than men, people still think women talk more. People get annoyed by verbal tics like "vocal fry" and "upspeak" when women use them, but often don't even notice it when men do. The same mental amplification process makes people see an assertive woman as "aggressive," which gets in the way of women's personal and professional advancement. Women are much more likely to be perceived as "abrasive" and get negative performance reviews as a result -- which puts them in a double bind when they try to "lean in" and assertively negotiate salaries.

The broad who wrote this needs to stop being so shrill and find her softness.

Check the video here, at RCP, starting about 2:35.

Her idea seems to be that she can inauthentically (obviously) capture the zeitgeist of popular discontent at establishment power by ranting like a lunatic.

When she looks out of the corner of her eyes, as she turns her head so that her face is in a different direction than her strange, meth-baked eyes, which is always, she just looks bananas.

She looks and sounds deranged. She looks like she's spotting children to go meet Pennywise the Clown backstage.

It's not sexist to say a madwoman looks and sounds like madwoman.
