The issue with Elizabeth Warren isn’t likability. It’s sexism | Moira Donegan | Opinion | The Guardian

the biggest obstacle to Warren’s candidacy will be sexism, and not only from the trumped-up mobs of rightwingers who are sure to start chanting “Lock her up” in reference to her at Trump’s next rally. Misogyny is alive and well in the Democratic party; it knows no political affiliation. Much of the sexism that Warren will face will be from Republicans, but it will also come from Democratic voters – men and a few women who are liberals, leftists and progressives. Many of these voters are people who esteem themselves to be feminists or otherwise free of bias, but who will nevertheless find themselves uncomfortable with a woman in power, unable to articulate what it is that bothers them about Elizabeth Warren – except for a vague sense that they just don’t like her.
