Re “How Sexism Plays Out on the Campaign Trail” (front page, Feb. 12):
The notion that voters’ preference for “likable” women reinforces gender biases overlooks a whole lot of presidential history. For instance, Reagan (nice guy — wins) was more likable than Mondale (wonk — lost). Bush #2 (a guy to have a beer with) was more likable than Kerry (dull — lost).
Likability has clearly has been a factor in several past elections. So the issue is not one of sexism, as the article suggests.
In addition, the article ignores the fact that Hillary Clinton, the “unlikable” female candidate, actually won the popular vote, getting more votes than the man. Maybe some biases aren’t gender-based after all.

According to research cited in your article, male political candidates who defy gender stereotypes are not penalized, unlike women candidates who emphasize stereotypically masculine qualities. Not true.
Look at the failed 1972 presidential campaign of Senator Edmund S. Muskie, who displayed his emotional side (some observers said he shed tears at a news conference) defending his wife from charges by a conservative New Hampshire newspaper publisher that she was “unladylike” — a gender-bender double whammy! Wags questioned if Mr. Muskie had the strength to serve as the nation’s commander in chief. Eventually, he dropped out of the race.
And Michael Dukakis may have lost support during his 1988 presidential race against George H.W. Bush because he was considered weak in his response to a debate question about whether he would support the death penalty if his wife were raped and murdered.

People have many reasons they are for or against a candidate. Gender is just one of that huge array.
If women want to be equal, it is time they stop claiming that anything negative that happens is because of sexism. If they stop acting so overly accusatory and overly sensitive, they will learn that being criticized is part of life, no matter your gender.

To the Editor:
Please take a look in the mirror when asking about why there is sexism. When focusing on these candidates’ gender on the front page, you only underscore and validate the concerns of those who question a woman’s suitability for elected office. If there’s anything our current president has taught us, it’s that repeating words often enough tends to make an idea concrete — whether or not it is true or even has any basis in reality.
Give us information about the candidates that is useful as we make choices at the polls, such as where they stand on issues and their experience. Leave the rhetoric, hand-wringing and spinning to the pundits.
