Tim Gunn, everyone's favorite super-gay fashionista, sat down with George Lopez to discuss some serious threats to our government. Just kidding. He basically just rehashed some late '90s SNL jokes about how Hillary Clinton dresses like a man. Most notably, the Project Runway host exclaimed, "Why must she dress that way? I think she's confused about her gender."

He did, in a pandering side note, acknowledge her myriad accomplishments: "I have great respect for her intellect and her tenacity and for what she does for our country in her governmental role. I just wish she could send a stronger message about American fashion."

Tim Gunn is saying one of two things. He's accusing Hillary Clinton of being confused about her gender because she dresses like a man or he's saying she's confused about her gender because she obviously doesn't give a shit about fashion. And she doesn't; Hillary Clinton has never dressed particularly well, but she's always dressed appropriately. It's not like the woman is wearing sweatpants to the office.

I believe that fashion can be a powerful thing. It has the ability to impart confidence and make bold statements, but it doesn't have to. Not everyone — not even all women — take pleasure in researching upcoming designers and putting together fashion-forward outfits. Dressing yourself is a talent, and not everyone is good at it. It's unfair to expect our female politicians to take on the advancement of American fashion in addition to their political duties, simply because they're women. Not every women loves playing dress-up.

Dear Mr. Gunn:

Given your rather effete mannerisms, the same can be said of you.

So. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

Society started to go downhill when women were allowed to vote.

Her aim seems to be making her garb a non-issue. I applaud her for this, actually.

I came here ready to be outraged, but come on. It was just a prod at her fashion sense. I mean, fuck, he's not going to be up there talking about her position on the estate tax, he's gonna talk about how she can't seem to find a decent stylist in DC. No one is exempt from fashion people ridiculing your fashion sense, and no one has to care, either. And Hillary, giving as much of a shit about fashion as she does, would probably just laugh at this.
