Hillary Sexism Watch: If a woman is president, who will iron the shirts?

The last few days have really brought out some sexist assholery concerning Sen. Hillary Clinton. In the past, we’ve ran a post series called Hillary Sexism Watch, but given just how many different sexist things have happened recently, one post isn’t enough. So therefore tomorrow we’re launching a 24-Hour Hillary Sexism Watch: all day I’ll be posting different instances of nasty misogyny leveled against Clinton. (If you have any you think I should post, please email me.)
But just so you have something to look forward to (as much as one can look forward to hearing about sexism), I’ll put up one today.
This I’m a little late on–it seems several young men at a campaign event in New Hampshire yesterday started yelling out “Iron my shirt!”

Mrs. Clinton asked for the lights to be turned on, and the shirt man was removed along with another man who had stood up too.
“Oh, the remnants of sexism are alive and well,� Mrs. Clinton said.
When everyone had settled down a bit, she said, “As I think has just been abundantly demonstrated, I am also running to break through the highest and hardest glass ceiling.�

Indeed. Also, for the dude with the sign–I’ll iron something for you, but it won’t be your shirt.
