Identity Politics?

I think Eugene Robinson is pretty much in the right of it. Conservatives largely see white and largely see male as the objective standard instead of just another form of identity with its own biases and notions. If anyone outside of those narrow parameters...well, being male is half the population of the world roughly so it isn't that narrow, references their identity it is seen as something off limits that shouldn't be a factor, never acknowledging that who they are is also a factor.
