Women and dKos

For all the wide-eyed protestations from the young, male side of the Democratic-leaning blogosphere (cf: Yglesias) of how they don't mean to imply that women are stupid, uninformed, and unworthy of much attention at all, it's just they don't understand why women don't want to talk politics with them. How could that be? *blink* *blink* *flutter flutter* *blink blink* ....

Sometimes they just come right out and admit that they've mentally got women slotted into the 'irrelevant, lalalala, I can't/won't/don't need to hear you' corner of their brains, as galiel caught Kos doing recently when discussing Kerry's VP choice:
And it's not like Kerry has trouble garnering women votes. He can take them for granted, at least for this cycle.
Not a hint of another potential candidate of color. There's something very wrong with that.
