Watch Young Women Shut Down The Idea They ‘Vote With Their Vaginas’ For Good

"Who do you think has cuter supporters? Hillary or Bernie?"

Gloria Steinem faced criticism earlier in the week after a comment she made about young female supporters of Bernie Sanders

“When you’re young, you’re thinking, 'Where are the boys?' The boys are with Bernie,” Steinem said.

The feminist icon later clarified her comments, making it clear that she supports all young feminists and explained her statement was "misinterpreted as implying young women aren't serious in their politics." 

But the fact remains that there are some people who believe young women are complacent when it comes to politics. While young female Bernie Sanders supporters are accused of seeking male approval, Hillary Clinton supporters are accused of "voting with their vaginas." A new video from Fusion is proving both of these theories wrong.

In the video above, Katie McDonough of Fusion walked around the streets of New York City to ask "the question on every young woman's mind this election: where dem boys at?"

The tongue-in-cheek clip perfectly dismantles the idea that young women's political beliefs are at all dictated by what men think. Some of the best question and answers included:

"[Are you supporting Bernie Sanders] because... you've seen a lot of boys at his events?"

"No, not at all. That's not the reason that I'm voting for him."

"Who do you think has cuter supporters? Hillary or Bernie?"

"If I'm going to a Bernie Sanders event it's for his ideas, and to listen to what he's proposing for the United States."

"About, like, who you should date? Or marry?"

The point is simple, but brilliant -- young women voters, whether they are supporting Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, are overwhelmingly concerned with the issues.
