The other day, Arsalan Iftikhar, an American international human rights lawyer, went on MSNBC to discuss Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s comments about Muslim ‘no-go zones’ in Europe.

In President Obama’s final press conference of they year, he only took questions from female reporters. Sexism will never go away until this kind of political hackery goes away. If the President really wanted to treat women equally, he would promote the content of their questions, and not the fact that they are women. What he did says, “It only matters that women were called on, not what they have to say.” He made a political move here to draw women into his favor, but this is condescending; women are not single-issue voters, who can only vote based on gender and are not interested in the political issues that men are interested in. This is backwards thinking from the President.
