Condi Rice worries ‘Me Too’ movement could turn women into ‘snowflakes’ … or much worse

During a Saturday night interview with David Axelrod on CNN’s “The Axe Files,” former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice discussed the positive aspects of the “Me Too” movement, but was also frank about its potential ramifications, specifically the potential to turn women into “snowflakes.”

“I’ve certainly had people suggest that maybe we should just go out, and you know, and situations in which it was somebody more senior than I,” Rice said in response to a question from Axelrod about whether she’s experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. “I’ve never faced an explicit quid pro quo. I’ve never had anyone do anything that I would consider assault. But I don’t know a woman alive who hasn’t had somebody say or do something that was inappropriate at best and aggressive at worst.”

While was Rice supported the movement to “expose these circumstances” as a positive development, she also highlighted the potential of an ever broader movement possibly backfiring on women.

“I think that the movement to expose these circumstances is a good thing. Let’s clear the air about it. I do think we have to be a little bit careful,” said the former secretary of state. “Let’s not turn women into snowflakes. Let’s not infantilize women.”

“And what I really don’t want to happen is that I don’t want it to get to a place that men start to think well maybe it’s better not to have women around. I’ve heard a little bit of that, and it worries me.”

Rice’s “snowflake” comment was quick to bring out the, er, snowflakes on Twitter:

But Rice got plenty of support as well:
