“I Don’t Vote with my Vagina”—Susan Sarandon Feels the Bern.

It’s no secret I’m a Bernie Sanders supporter. 

I saw the above caption and post today in one of the Bernie Facebook groups I follow.

I’ve loved Susan Sarandon ever since she was Janet Weiss in Rocky Horror, so I was immediately intrigued—plus, I think it’s important that women are vocal about their support of Senator Sanders.

And Sarandon touches on that very topic, in the video clip below. She acknowledges the fact that it doesn’t sit well with some other women that she supports Bernie Sanders over Hilary Clinton.

This is what Sarandon says to nay-sayers:

“I don’t vote with my vagina…It’s so insulting to women to think that [we] would follow a candidate just because she’s a woman.”

The event Sarandon was speaking at was “Brooklyn Is Berning”—a two-day benefit concert in New York for the Democratic candidate from Vermont, Bernie Sanders.

The video clip mysteriously disappeared from YouTube earlier today, but it’s available to view on Facebook.

I took to Reddit to see if I could find a version I could embed, and that’s what you’ll see below. There’s some  great comments on the Reddit thread, check ’em out here.

“This is a revolution of hope.” ~ Susan Sarandon

Susan, I feel the same way! Preach! #FeelTheBern

**Warning: Sarandon drops an F-bomb at 2 minutes in. No biggie, though.

I googled Feel the Bern + vagina and this post came up. I did it because I was reading an article about Bernie Bros and it suggested that people google Feel the Bern + vagina because crazy things come up. Most of the Bernie Bros with whom I have contact are men. This is new.

I don't vote with my vagina, either, but I, sure as Hell, do not give a crap that Susan Sarandon doesn't vote with hers. Although, I could probably manage it if I had enough privacy to do so. Will you be voting with your vagina this year for Bernie? I will probably use my hands to vote for Hillary.
