More: Young Female Democrats "Perplexed" By Hillary Clinton's Claim That They Should Support Her Just Because She's a Woman

I know I covered this basic idea earlier but it keeps popping up. Seems to be worth mentioning again.

Also, I forgot to mention two stories from the weekend.

First, Gloria Steinem said that young women are supporting Bernie Sanders to meet boys.

That has to be the most sexist thing ever. Seriously! She's claiming these little girls have nothing go on in their heads, no "agency," no concern other than meeting some cute (?) liberal boys.

She said this on the Bill Maher show.

Asked why the former secretary of state isn't doing better among young women, Steinem said females typically don’t start taking politics seriously until they get older.

"When you're young, you're thinking, 'Where are the boys?' The boys are with Bernie," Steinem added.

Maher was immediately taken aback by Steinem's comment.

"Now if I said that -- 'Yeah, they're for Bernie 'cause that's where the boys are' — you'd swat me," Maher said.

"No, I wouldn't," Steinem fired back.

Yes you would.

She claims now that her clear-as-polished-crystal statement was merely "misinterpreted," and she apologizes for your misinterpretation.

Vinegary old crow Madeleine Albright then declared: "“There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other" at a Clinton rally. This stinking, cheesy discharge of a statement is a claim she's been making since 2008, so, these foul cows figure, it's "nothing new" and therefore completely unobjectionable.

In an unrelated note, Mein Kampf was published in 1931.

With this noxious stink of special pleading and straight-up Gender Superiority politics a-swirl, the Daily Beast interviewed female Sanders supporters, who say they just don't understand this truly bizarre claim that Gals Gotta Stick Together, even if they disagree on fundamental points.

"[Hillary is] confused about what feminism means, she thinks feminism just means female empowerment only, it means a lot more than that," said Ainsley-Aude Croteau, 24, of Durham, New Hampshire. "Feminism is gender equality, I think she's trying to appeal to young women voters by shouting feminism in our faces, but were not one-track-minded people."

Croteau was one of nearly a dozen women interviewed by The Daily Beast who attended the Sanders rally on Sunday afternoon in a community college gymnasium. They were all genuinely perplexed by the idea that Clinton deserved their support solely based on her gender.

Another young woman called Hillary's emails "wicked shady."

Croteau is given the last word:

"Bernie doesn't treat us like we're children, he treats us like we are adults. He doesn't try to talk down to us with the feminism thing," she said. "It's not a girl power thing, it's a gender equality power thing."

This Hillary Clinton thing might really not be happening.

Then again, if she is the nominee, I expect all of these Social Justice Warrioresses to be parroting #WarOnWomen like Stepford Voters.

Et Tu, Debbie? Debbie Wasserman-Schultz' statement, intended to be about Carly Fiorina -- that "just because you're a woman doesn't mean you're good for women" -- gets a new airing in light of women's rejection of Hillary.

Dead Heat Nationally: Last week a poll put the national race at a dead heat, 45-42.

Now another poll puts it at the same dead heat, this time, 48-45.
