"You have no idea," Clinton replied.

When Trump called Clinton a "nasty" woman while she talked about Social Security during the third presidential debate in October 2016, she ignored him, finishing her answer without acknowledging the insult. Clinton knew the unspoken rules for women, and while she tried her best to follow them, she was often caught between the expectations of her gender and the qualities people tend to associate with leadership.

behaving in a way that is unusual and different from most people. someone behaves or thinks in a way that is typical of someone much younger (used to show disapproval). someone or something that is reliable can be trusted or depended on.

"Whether you're a woman, a person of color or someone from an identity that's in any other way marginalized, it's difficult to see yourself in the position of these leaders, because they're operating in a world that you're not permitted to operate in," said Laura Palumbo of the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. "The double standards are very clear in that behaviors that are admired and respected in certain individuals are exactly what others have to be intentional in avoiding in order to be taken seriously."

Many people called Tuesday night's debate, which was rife with insults and interruptions, a devastating example of the state of American politics. But it was something else, too: a confrontation that could take place only between two white men.

Double standards: 'You can't be angry'

No female challenger would ever have told Trump to shut up. Even if she wanted to.

The stereotypical idea of a woman is kind, gentle, moral and compassionate. But stereotypical notions of leadership – toughness, assertiveness, the ability to "take charge" – are typically associated with men. For women to rise to leadership positions, they must retain their stereotypical femininity while also exhibiting characteristics we associate with men. The problem is that once women start exhibiting those stereotypical male traits, they are seen as less feminine and ultimately less likable.

"There's no language that women are allowed to speak to stand up for themselves," said Juliet Williams, a professor of gender studies at UCLA. "So clearly it would have been ridiculous for her to go: 'Come on, man. This is unpresidential.' It's not just that we're barred from the boardrooms and the golf clubs, we're not even entitled to use the same language. It wouldn't work at all. And clearly you can't be angry, you can't be aggressive."

The week in polls: Trump trails in 10 of 11 swing states, plurality says Biden won 1st debate

  The week in polls: Trump trails in 10 of 11 swing states, plurality says Biden won 1st debate After polls released last week, Biden overtook Trump in Georgia. And his national lead grew to an average of 8.1 percentage points.With all that going on, it's understandable if you missed the flood of polls that are still rolling in on the state of the race between Trump and his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.

Women ’s role in society began to change with the advent of the industrial revolution. Previously most women had spent their lives at home But how have these changes in women ’s roles affected men? As American civil rights leader Martin Luther King used to say, “No one is free until we are all free.”

Research from the nonpartisan Barbara Lee Family Foundation shows that women in politics have to be likable to get a person's vote, but men don't need to be liked to be elected. Qualities such as ambition and assertiveness, which are lauded in male leaders, are the very things that make women less likable, and therefore less electable.

After Sen. Kamala Harris challenged Biden over his past opposition to federal busing policy in a Democratic primary debate in June 2019, some Biden allies later suggested she was too ambitious to be his vice president, a charge gender experts say would never have been levied against a man.

And it's not just gender identity that comes into play on the debate stage and in voters' choices.

"Double standards and stereotypes play out whenever diverse identities come together. Is a woman 'emotional,' or a black man 'angry,' while a white male is 'passionate'?" Harvard Business Review wrote in 2019.

A performance of masculinity

Men are frequently called upon to perform their masculinity – in the military, in fraternities, in politics, in relationships – and gender experts say Tuesday's debate was no exception.

"It was an exercise in masculine dominance," said CJ Pascoe, a professor at the University of Oregon and author of "Exploring Masculinities." "Trump walked in and said, 'The rules don't apply to me. The moderator can't tell me what to do. Biden can't tell me what to do. Tradition can't tell me what to do.' ... I think what Trump has been able to do is embody this sort of culturally valued form of masculinity that is authoritative. There are people who listen to him and find that sort of masculine charisma intoxicating regardless of the content that follows."

With Trump's doctor Sean Conley in the spotlight, a New Mexico physician explains what osteopathic medicine is and the difference between a DO and MD.Some of the attention on Navy Cmdr. Sean Conley arose from contradictory information he provided over the weekend, and when he admitted Sunday that, despite his cheerful presentation on the president's health Saturday, he had not disclosed that the president had received supplemental oxygen and was taking a steroid medication generally prescribed in severe cases of coronavirus infection.

APA: Psychologists call 'traditional masculinity' harmful

During the debate, Trump questioned Biden’s intellect and bragged about the size of his rallies. He attacked Biden's son Hunter, who has struggled with addiction.

But gender experts say Tuesday's debate also underscored the limitations of masculinity. Experts say that because of his gender and his race, Biden is likely used to being treated with respect. Trump's behavior appeared to throw him, in part because he had a limited number of of acceptable masculine responses to deal with Trump's behavior, experts say.

"We tend to talk about toxic masculinity as bad for women. And I think that part of the message that hasn't gotten across is a recognition of how bad toxic masculinity is for men," Williams said. "So Biden was completely caught in a double bind where he had been goaded beforehand about being 'Sleepy Joe,' and so he knew he had to in some way come out swinging. But his two choices were to look like a woman, effeminate, totally unacceptable, or to be as low as Trump would go, which also doesn't look very good."

Biden did, however, call Trump a "clown," a liar, and the "worst president" in American history.

A year after the election, in her book about her time on the campaign trail, Clinton said that her "skin crawled" as Trump loomed behind her during the debate, but she kept her cool because of "a lifetime of dealing with difficult men trying to throw me off."
