Maybe, but not the mistress of one. Same point, though.

Hypersensitivity is not an advantageous trait for a politician. She needs to get her head out of the intersectional dogma and act like a real person with an individual personality rather than a member of a group if she wants to succeed.

That deadwood is what gave the Dems the majority in the House. Having progressive Tea Partyish circular firing squads is not a helpful thing.

Wha?

So, now that she's become a member of congress, she needs to stop reacting the way she does to the biases and assumptions made against her, and start behaving more like a politician aught to?

She needs to curb her visceral response to criticism and act like a real person?

She needs to step in line and be an individual?

What you expect of her is not at all clear, but it is clear that you expect something of her, and I guess that's what counts.

It seems to work for the current person occupying the White House.

"Acting like a real person with an individual personality" is precisely what the intersectional dogma is.
