Gestures, in love, are incomparably more attractive, effective and valuable than words.

I find this as offensive as a white person saying Mexicans are best suited for field work because they are generally shorter or something equally as stupid. I realize sexism alive and well all around the world but has no place in the work place. The only job I see as being one of the very, very few where restrictions based on sex should apply are combat jobs in the military and fire fighters in some cases. Yes I know women can do all of the actual fire fighting tasks as men. However the physical strength qualifications and requirements have been lowered for women which can put lives at risk. My stance or military combat jobs is out of the fact that I personally would not like to even think about women in a torture situation or having to be a ruthless as men can become. I'm sure there are exceptions to all of this even. Having been in positions of executive management dealing with both men and women being a sexist can go both ways and there are those who feel they are superior to others regardless of sex. When it comes to being able of taking in all of the available and necessary information and making the correct decision has nothing what ever to do with your hormones.
Harriet Harperson is a massive disapointment.It almost seems as if female MP are picked at random for Cabinet jobs but at one point i thought she was one of the truely talentend ones.

Life is hard for female ministers
Life is hard for female ministers, says Harriet Harman - Times OnlineHarriet Harman has expressed sympathy for female ministers who find it difficult ďbeing a woman in a manís worldĒ, and insisted that men should not be left to run things on their own.
Ms Harman, Labourís Deputy Leader and the Minister for Women and Equality, said that one of the partyís top two positions should always be held by a woman and that the party would never have a male leader and deputy again, as was the case with Tony Blair and John Prescott.
ďI donít agree with all-male leaderships,Ē she said in remarks that will be seen as a bid to remain at the top table after the next election.
What will be interesting to see in the US, is whenever Ginsberg steps down from the Supreme Court, if there will be pressure to keep the seat she vacated a "female" seat. There might be less pressure, with Sotomayer present, but I wonder if there would be uproar(particularly from feminists) if Ginsberg is replaced with a male.
