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:
Question: "Why should the women of America vote for you instead of our sisters, who are kind of more qualified?"
Buttigieg: “We ought to have a woman in the Oval Office right now. I’m still disappointed that didn’t happen.”

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?

With that said he should step aside and let gillibrand run ahead of him.

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?

I'm only surprised that he didn't wear his pussy hat.

EYE-ROLL. Vote for substance, not inherited anatomical traits. If you agree with his policies and you like his delivery more than any others, then vote for him. If you don’t, then don’t. But asking him to change his netherparts through oratory demeans you both.

Let’s vote for a woman because I am a fat woman. It’s science

In a feminized society a candidate's best chance of being elected is to be cowed by screeching harpies with no self-restraint. No confidence, no virile manliness: just apologies and surrender.

Umm – so why should women vote for a white man running on the Dem ticket again?

That didn’t really answer the question now, did it?

That’s an answer, just not to the question he was asked.
