Less than you would think. The racists and alt-right are just nosier, so they look like they have large numbers. I like to watch 4chan/b to see what the young folks are up to. Yes, there are alt-right and racist posts and threads, but more celebrate gay and trans sex, and they practically worship what they call "BBC" which is an acronym for part of Black male anatomy reputed to be larger than average. You see about 20 gay , trans, or dick comparison threads for the one "gay is a mental illness" thread.

Likewise, I suspect alt-right threads that are not just punks trolling the board are much rarer than "Trump is a cuck[old]" or "Why is this guy still President" threads.

Hi Pi! Welcome aboard.

I'll not vote for any woman candidate just because she's a woman. Same for a man. I'll vote for a candidate that I think will make a good president regardless of sex or gender or political party. When I disliked both major party candidates, I have no qualms in voting third party against both major party candidates which is exactly what I did in 2016.

What I hope from the Democrats is that they look for the most qualified and best candidate available to become the next president leaving gender and race entirely out of it. Look for the candidate that would make the best president, period.

Warren would be very qualified. Maybe the best qualified candidate, but I hope the Democrats don't nominate her. I read stories about interviews with people in those mid-western Trump states in which a LOT of women said they don't trust women. Which I find very sad, but you have got to pay attention to your voter's prejudices. Politics is the art of the possible, not "what the losers wish was true".

They voted for a Black man, but not for a White woman. Misogyny runs deep, and it's not just men. There's obviously something wrong with how we teach girls to relate to other girls.

You're talking about Democratic women or just midwestern women all the way around?

Actual Democratic women, who had families who voted for Democrats for decades. It just killed me, because I thought women in general were more sensible than that.

I really think the DNC needs to run their own poll: Just ask Middle America's women their Party (if any) and if they would vote for a woman.

There are 9 female republicans in the house, there are 89 female democrats. The score is 8 to 17 in the Senate. Democrats seem perfectly capable of electing women. Republicans haven't even noticed that their party has become a white christian sausage fest.

I think they will elect female Senators, Representatives, and even Governors. President is a whole quantum leap different. Hillary was 1000 times more qualified that Trump, yet a lot of White women did not vote for her. If it was about their own best interests, they would have.

Instead they voted for their own worst enemy. I think a significant percentage of that vote would have gone the other way if the Democratic candidate had been male.
