maureen dowd is a sexist pig

So say some rabid Hillary supporters, and the Times ombudsman weakly concedes their point.

Dowd, who didn’t have to marry a lecherous sleaze to get her job, is justifiably peeved:

“From the time I began writing about politics,” Dowd said, “I have always played with gender stereotypes and mined them and twisted them to force the reader to be conscious of how differently we view the sexes.” Now, she said, “you are asking me to treat Hillary differently than I’ve treated the male candidates all these years, with kid gloves.”

Seems those complaining the loudest would prefer to be patronized. How sexist is that?
