Cosmopolitan’s Robin Marty is apparently having a slight crisis of conscience. She’s a feminist, but also becoming a really big fan of Republican Carly Fiorina:

Then she released her own ad in response to Trump’s words, and that was when I truly felt myself wavering. In “Faces,” Fiorina stated, “We are not a special interest group, we are a majority of the nation,” and a part of me cheered.
