So, Was Gloria Steinem Actually Right?

Gloria Steinem made a few headlines recently during an appearance in support of Hillary Clinton for president:

Feminist icon — and Hillary Clinton supporter — Gloria Steinem says young women are supporting Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders because “the boys are with Bernie.”

Needless to say she became the target of ridicule up and down the political spectrum. But then this happens:

There is now a dating site for singles feeling the Bern — and it’s so popular it won’t stop crashing

“The 1% aren’t the only ones getting screwed this election season”

Or this: Feel the Yearn!

This was bound to happen. Millennials love Bernie Sanders. And millennials love online dating.

Enter, a website aimed at connecting the Vermont senator’s single supporters who may be looking for that special fellow democratic socialist.

The site’s administrators, however, may have underestimated how many Sanders supporters were feeling the proverbial yearn. The Hill reports that the site crashed Wednesday after attracting more than 1,000 members in an hour. And the site was continuing to suffer intermittent outages on Thursday morning.

A Facebook group associated with the singles site has nearly 10,000 members.

So Gloria Steinem was right? Shrug!

  1. So she was right because people like to date each other and some of them share the same interest in a political candidate?

    I guess everyone should resort to polite nods and handshakes until the election is over. Lest Ms. Steinem’s self fulfilling prophecy ruin democracy forever.

  2. Actually, Gloria Steinem appeared on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher to discuss her new book, My Life on the Road. She said, “when you’re young, you know, you’re thinking ‘where are the boys?’ The boys are with Bernie, so…” The appearance was not in support of Hillary Clinton. She later apologized to young women.
