FiveThirtyEight’s Geoffrey Skelly recently analyzed Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard’s base and found something very interesting. Well, ABC News certainly thought it was interesting. They tweeted it out earlier this week:

Cool. Why not make it a two-for-one special of erasure for me as well? I'm a black woman who supports Tulsi.

And second of all, what’s the big deal if Tulsi Gabbard’s base comprises a lot of men? We thought that was the goal!
Has Tulsi defeated sexism!!!!?!??

Do you want people to vote for a woman or not?
— el_mehecano (@rancho_boi) November 14, 2019
Great! Men want to vote for a female candidate! Isn’t that what the feminists want?
— matty-mattmatt (@mattmatt_matty) November 14, 2019
And? I thought it's a good thing that men would support a woman running for President?
Now it's bad?
— Santa Cl-Austin 'Badg3rman' Smith (@TheBadg3rman) November 15, 2019
So do you want everyone to support a woman candidate for president or is it now bad if men vote for a woman?

So, males chose a female candidate. That exactly what the democrats were longing for! No more toxic masculinity or male patriarchy! What a wonderful day!

"The patriarchy is the root of all evil because they will never support a female candidate"
Next you are going to tell me that the patriarchy killed itself.

If anything’s dead, it’s ABC News’ credibility.
Thanks ABC. What do we know about the execs that killed your Jeffrey Epstein story?

And what do we now know about ABC?https://t.co/9MaH7x4u7f

ABC News needs to forget about Tulsi Gabbard’s base and worry about what’s happening under their own roof.
