There have been a number of left wing, celebrity feminists who have shamed or scolded American women (in particular, white women) for how they voted in the 2016 American Presidential elections.
I don’t find it very “feminist” for women to shame other women for whom they voted for! To shame women for how they voted, to cluck disapprovingly at them for how they voted, is rather patronizing and it infantilizes grown women.
I personally did not vote for any one in the 2016 elections (because I did not like any of the candidates who ran), but I’m not about to scold or insult women for how they voted, if they did.
The most recent liberal celebrity to shame women for whom they cast a vote is comedian Tina Fey. She seems quite likable apart from this incident, so this is disappointing.
Actress Lena Dunham and singer Madonna have also shamed or condescendingly lectured women in the last few months over their choice of candidate.
It is not the place for one American woman to call out another American woman for how she voted. I find it especially annoying when this criticism comes out of the mouths of these multi-millionaire movie actors or singers and other entertainers who do not have all or even most of the same concerns as middle class, or lower class, or working class Americans…

These people [liberals, especially liberal celebrities] still don’t get it. You lost because partially because no one likes being what to do, especially when it comes to voting. You called Trump supporters deplorable.
You’re smug. You’re condescending. And that usually doesn’t yield dividends.
You lost. Hillary sucked.
And you’re stuck with Trump for the next four, possibly eight years.
