    And you'd be right about that. And apparently I'm not alone. MSNBC must not like her either. They said the same things about this issue as I did. Maybe MSNBC is turning far right.

    This is a "left-right" issue? Interesting. Looks to everyone else like a male-female issue. Even Senators Warren & Gillibrand didn't make it a "left-right" issue.

    By the way, are women in this country supposed to just bob their heads and agree with everything other women say? Do you think every woman should agree with, oh let's say, Michelle Bachmann when she says abortion should be illegal, simply because she's a woman, and they're all women?

    The 'flack' referred to the reporter, and "when what she actually said was just a couple dozen words."

    Or like any show touching politics, MSNBC likes a scandal O the Day to gin up interest and viewership, and this non-story was the best they could do that morning.

    I think the point was "that" which she said wasn't much - the claim, such as it was, consisted entirely of her answering the question - have you been treated differently in the Senate because you're a woman - "Yes", which is as extraordinary a claim for D.C. as republicans don't appear to like Obama all that much, John Boehner likes to drink alcohol, or Barney Frank is....GAY!

    She answered a direct question, "Yes" and made no actual claim that needed defending or elaboration.
    Senators treated her differently....



    As I said, all the rest is projection. See ^^^^
    So then she could have meant she was offended by someone holding the door open and we're left to assume she meant the real thing.
    Hey, maybe that's what she wanted us to believe huh.

    I suppose, but what's "the real thing." She didn't say yes to a question, "Have you been sexually harassed" so no reason or support for that kind of leap.

    What's kind of funny is clearly Warren didn't want to make a big deal out of this - hence, after the topic was introduced in the form of a direct question, the "Yes" "Nope" "I said all I'm going to say" responses followed by a longer one that is politician-side-step of the issue.

    I've been thinking hard about this, and I've finally concluded after much deliberation that whole thing is a thin excuse to bash a prominent and apparently not liked liberal.

    Also, too, I'm sure CNN and the reporter are pleased. Bunch of people clicking on a non-story is a "news" organization WIN!

    Re: Elizabeth Warren says she's been treated differently in the Senate but won't say

    I don't see anything Warren said to be out of the norm for a left-feminist whose very thinking is based on victimhood as they view women as victims due to men. Never understood that concept of trying to empower women through victimhood.

    What stood out to me in the OP was that this piece sympathizing feminist victimhood was posted on Yahoo. Yahoo's CEO is Marrissa Mayer. Ms. Mayer is a big bundler for the Democrat party. So in the piece it wasn't surprising to see the (D) left off of the deceased Hawaii Sen. Daniel K. Inouye in regard to his alleged remarks to Kirsten Gillibrand in regard to her weight. I believe she published her memoirs naming Sen. Daniel Inouye after he was no longer around to defend himself. Whether you agree with Inouye's politics, he was a war hero and a huge supporter of civil rights. Some of the same rights that pave the way for the Hilldibrands and the Warrens to pursue seats in the Senate. So to make accusations about someone when they are no longer around to defend them puts the B in itch in my opinion.

    Looked to me that nothing she said appeared out of the norm for women who work in male dominated professions.... And her prescription, such as there was one in that interview, was to elect more strong women to the Senate. I'm not sure how that's empowering women through victimhood.

    You're kidding, right? Did you see the picture they selected? And why would an article about what Warren said in an interview include a comprehensive rundown of the claims made by Gillibrand?

    I also doubt that Mayer is a bundler for the Democrat Party, at least not in the U.S. Could be a Democrat party in some other country I suppose.

    Mentioning Gillibrand's memoirs was to bring validity to Warren's claims.
    As far as Ms Mayer goes, educate yourself.
