Remember back when Hillary Clinton was too cold and calculating to be President? Well, now she’s too angry. And too choked up about how she wants to change the country. And yes, some of this is undoubtedly because the stunningly juvenile press corps just doesn’t like her. But it’s hard not too think about the bind that gender schemas place her in: If she doesn’t show emotion, she is creepily unfeminine. If she does show emotion, she is not to be trusted with power. (See Hegel, 166 Addition.) And even the showing of emotion is viewed and rewarded differently in men and women. The truth is, I’m not actually a big Hillary fan. But I don’t like what’s going on. Though maybe it’s wrong to attribute it too much to gender schemas, remembering what happened to Howard Dean when he showed too much emotion. And to ‘wooden’ Al Gore when he showed too little. What do you think?
