Feminists think being called a “sweetheart” is bad.
Because in reality, most feminists are certainly not sweethearts so they feel they just need to be clear about it.

Biden called the moderator of an LGBTQ forum "a lovely person" while onstage, and she says he called her "a real sweetheart" backstage.
She called the comments "a little condescending," and said, "It’s 2019, you shouldn’t be calling women sweethearts." https://t.co/8f7BSxoClt

“You’re a lovely person,” Biden tells the moderator to laugher.
“Just asking the questions people want to know,” she replied pic.twitter.com/DB10NGuBCP

From radically far-left Vox:
[Lyz] Lenz also referred to Biden’s comments in February in which he referred to Vice President Mike Pence, a vocal opponent of many LGBTQ rights, as a “decent guy.” (Biden walked back those comments on Twitter shortly afterwards, saying there is “nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights.”)
At the forum, Biden said that this was how one must speak when attempting to reach across the aisle “when you want to get things done.” When Lenz pushed back, saying Pence has not been decent to queer people, Biden responded, “You’re a lovely person.”
Lenz wrote on Twitter afterwards that Biden also called her “a real sweetheart” backstage. She later called these interactions “a little condescending,” and told the USA Today, “It’s 2019, you shouldn’t be calling women sweethearts.”
Folks, as you’re stepping over those egg shells on your way into the voting booth, remember that these people can never be made happy, so go ahead and pull the lever for Trump.

This is the kind of absolute nonsense reporting that gave us Trump. This is the “but her emails” that will lead to more fascist, racist, misogynistic, environment-killing, xenophobic policies.
