I wish people would stop explaining every meh debate performance by a woman as a function of gender. Yes, there are challenges, but Elizabeth Warren is a good debater! Not all women are great debaters being held back by their sex--some of us, like some men, are just bad debaters.

Replying to @asymmetricinfo
Mike Pence is actually a good debater--full of nonsense, but a good debater. And you didn't see him over there rolling his eyes and doing exaggerated high-school-theatrical "this is my disdainful face" mugging. Harris' X chromosomes did not force her to do that.

Nor did Harris' gender force her to leave points on the table. She left them on the table because she couldn't think of a good response quick enough. Stop grading us on a curve. We can make the grade.
