Sad that sticking up for Wendy Davis draws such ire

Wendy Davis has been unfairly maligned all day long on Twitter, the news and the radio for being a woman and being divorced.  What she is really being attacked for is being a divorced woman who went to Harvard Law School.  More disturbing is some people are threatened she's been able to make it without a man in her life.  Imagine that: a woman who can fend for herself.  The reaction to her is a sad commentary on our society.  Furthermore, people have attacked her for her political views, which is also at the heart of this.  If a man was divorced, a lawyer, a Harvard grad and supported the right to choose, he would not have been treated this way.
