It’s been fun to watch the Left’s obsession with “intersectionality” play out in the Democratic primary fight. Eric Swalwell, currently polling at 0 percent, just can’t stop apologizing for being a white man, but he promises he’ll 1) pass the mic to marginalized voices, 2) select a woman to be his vice president (if he can find one desperate enough), and 3) change a diaper every now and then.

You’d think Pete Buttigieg, who is gay, would have an easier time of it, but as Twitchy has reported, there have been a few worried think pieces from progressives wondering if Buttigieg isn’t really, you know, gay: he’s married, he goes to church, he dresses like a dork. He might as well be a straight man.

So at an MSNBC town hall Monday night, Buttigieg found himself in the awkward position of explaining why women should vote for another white man instead of any of the (more qualified) women nominees:

Yeah, bro, we’re all heartbroken Hillary didn’t win, but that’s not the question. Why should women vote for you over another woman, especially if you wish we had a female president right now?

Why haven’t all the woke white male Democrats stepped aside and made room for women and people of color? It’s their turn, right?

Um, Kirstin Gillibrand? Marianne Williamson?
