    Is it Time to Let Women Rule the World?

    Men have pretty much proven they can't pilot this ship. They had tens-of-thousands of years at the helm and it seems we're all on the Titanic. Either we've already hit the iceberg, or we're on a collision course.

    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?

    The world is much better today than 10k years ago.
    Both women and men have made contributions to the improvements we enjoy now.

    Things in general are fine, stop blaming one gender.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Is it Time to Let Women Rule the World?

    Why is it crazy?

    What's wrong with women?

    Are you saying they can't at least do as well as the men have done?

    Are you saying they would be worse at running things than the men have been?

    You wish a "coin flip" simply because you think that gender is "the problem" with most world leaders? Perhaps you can point out the "great successes" of female heads of state to back up your assertion that different has to be better.

    I don't think we should "let" anybody do anything. If you want to lead then you should earn it. Women are capable, they just don't participate at the same level as men, and that's our own fault. We don't need to see some sort of gender-based AA program for leadership roles just to balance the scales.

    I picked ban the OP because they suck for even suggesting this travesty!

    In all seriousness, why not? Could not do any worse than the guys have.

    If women want to rule I'm all for it, but I don't think we need to just shove a woman into any available leadership spot. They should build their resumes and campaign for it like everybody else, or (as with the SCOTUS) they should create a record that displays their abilities so that selecting them for those spots represents the best choice.

    And, of course, there are still some stigmas and "old world" ideals to fight against.
