    I'm not suggesting we grab the first few hundred ladies that walk into a South Carolina or Texas Walmart and appoint them as leaders.

    There can be elections.

    Well then why not try children? Cats? Dogs? If we are just throwing out random things instead of the evil men, why don't we give everyone and everything a fair chance?

    HELL NO!!! Among the worst ideas ever concieved in human history. As bad as things are now (and they're pretty bad), they would only get WORSE if we moved to a Matriarchal social structure.

    People say things like "how could the world be any worse", seriously? Just in my lifetime the standard of living has improved dramatically. Things can and have been much worse and there are more women serving in government roles than ever before.

    And, of course, there are still some stigmas and "old world" ideals to fight against.
    I gave a simplified answer, of course it is more complicated.

    Don't think because I gave a simple answer, I think this is just a coin flip.

    I figured you would be on the hell no list, hehehehe.

    I don't care what anyone says Tigger, you remain true to yourself.

    Isn't it about time we throw in the towel? perhaps let somebody different have a try?

    Who better to "clean up the mess" men have made?

    Change? You want change?

    Put the ladies in charge.

    On every level of government. From the POTUS right down to the mail room janitor and every place in between.

    Fill every office, every cabinet position, and every seat in congress with females.

    Could they really do a worse job then the men have done?
    I think there's some truth to the idea that women could make "better" leaders or administrators of certain things. I think female perspectives can bring a lot of fresh ideas to the table, and also that female views of things has often been discounted or marginalized out of knee-jerk sexism (like the idea that a woman couldn't be trusted in times of crises in foreign relations).

    But I also think you're taking the idea too far to say men, as a whole gender, aren't capable to lead because of inherent qualities that come with being male.

    More women? Sure.

    Mandating all women? Nah.

    That's all we can do, Blackdog. It's the people who refuse to actually believe in anything or stick to those beliefs that scare me the most.

    Which might suggest that MORE women would mean things might be even BETTER.

    Might be the ONLY way we could purge all the current phucksticks we have in DC.
