    That's fine. The next moment I care what you think will be the first moment I care what you think.

    A woman cannot be qualified to be involved in the political process by her gender alone. For proof of that, please show me a single significant Matriarchal society in the medieval or modern world.

    P.S. - Don't waste your time, there hasn't been one. There have been occasional female leaders but nowhere has there been a significant Matriarchal society since the end of the Celts.

    You can think whatever you want. Please refer to my comments to Dragonfly above.

    Right.

    Which is why you bothered to formulate a response.

    You're coming across as anything but sincere in this thread, aren't you?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Don't you ever get tired of spouting this antiquated garbage? Your dream world is never going to happen. Ever. Do you even understand that much? Give up the misogynist, elitist shtick already. It's really getting old and you sound like a complete idiot every time you post. You're an embarrassment to your gender and the members of this forum.

    Oh, and ETA: I don't even understand how tripe such as this is allowed to stand. Isn't it against forum rules to post derogatory comments about minorities? How is someone given a pass to call and entire group of people too stupid to vote based solely on the fact that they are female?

    I am 100% sincere. I have no issue with anyone based on their race. Gender, now that's another issue; as is political and social philosophy, employment status, educational status, and a number of other things.

    No I do not ever get tired of spouting it. If you don't want to read it, it's quite easy to add me to your ignore list, Arcana. It's not a shtick. It's what I really believe. If that makes me an idiot and an embarassment, then maybe more and more people will put me on ignore; which is just fine with me.

    Which shows that humans, as a whole, are maturing that we finally hold more things in regard to a person's value and ability to lead than just their brute strength.

    I believe you just contradicted yourself here. You just admitted that there has been a significant Matriarchal society, the Celts.

    It doesn't matter when they existed, it just matters that one did exist. All societies, except the current ones, have fallen, no matter who was in charge of them.

    I'm pretty sure you're sticking to this line only because there's a larger circle of misogynists for you to hide in than racists.

    The less people to tell you how completely retarded your ideas are, the better right? Typical.

    It most certainly does matter when they existed, and the Celts actually pre-dated the medieval period. They were pretty much done being a meaningful society by the time the Romans left the British Isles, which was just before the medieval period began. With all of our "enlightenment" , "equality" and other crap in the last century there is still no modern society that has turned its general leadership over to women. It just hasn't happened, because the human species was never designed to be run that way.

    Something like that. Moreover the less people who I end up having to ignore when they waste my time responding to my comments. Welcome to MY ignore list.

    No, it does matter because you are picking and choosing which dates in our history apply just to try to defend your fallacious argument.

    And our societies have not become women dominated because we have grown to the point (at least many of us) that we understand that both genders can lead together. In fact, working together, offering those differing viewpoints gives us a better society and more able to work on our problems with everyone's interests taken into consideration.
