18. There are plenty of people on DU with Taibbi's opinions about social issues.

They don't outright say it because they'll get banned, but I know there are some who wish that women and LGBT people would get back in the tent and be quiet. They completely disregard Hillary and Obama's stances on those issues because it distracts from whatever 20th-century battle they want to keep fighting.

And I say this as somebody who isn't particularly fond of Hillary. But I also know that Sanders and Warren would be better economic candidates who are similarly forceful (if not more consistently so) on LGBT equality and reproductive rights than the moderates the Party tends to nominate. But I don't like hearing about how my rights are "special issues" and "distractions."
