I support Barack. I think he’s a better candidate than Clinton would have been, I’m voting for him, and I hope to god he storms the election.
However, I can’t help wishing his campaign didn’t single out women for special treatment. Have a look at the buttons below. All primary colours, blocky fonts and that instantly recognisable rainbow/road logo except ‘Women for Obama’ in fluffy script and baby blue. Because, you know, we need women need something a little more feminine looking. (Interestingly, gays get the mixed-message combination of ‘masculine’ baby blue font. Obviously they occupy a middle ground between accepted notions of hetero masculinity and femininity.)
