Actually, I more pity ignorant people then anything else.
Anyone that judges someone strictly on the amount of melanin in their skin OR whether their reproductive organs are on the inside or the outside OR for any other superficial reason are ignoramuses of the first magnitude (imo).
I don't give a damn about gender or ethnicity.
I don't think it's "historic," positive, or even really matters - point in fact, I think all that nonsense is divisive. "Asians are good at math," is still bigotry.
Give me a candidate with integrity that values the same things I do, and I'll vote for them.
Would I vote for a woman for president? Possibly.
Would I vote for Hilary Clinton for president? Never. I can't stand her.
I misread option #4 and voted that way, thinking it said "I would vote for a woman if she held my views." The options could have been:
Yes with slight reservations
Yes as a last resort
Whatever. My actual answer is "yes I would." I don't know about "happy and excited," but whatever.
"The knowledge and prudence of the poor themselves, are absolutely the only means by which any general and permanent improvement in their condition can be effected." - Thomas Malthus
I'm not happy and excited to vote for a woman, nor would I have hesitations to vote for her if she met my standards.
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
are there really and rational, logical, objective people out there that wouldnt vote for a qualified person based on them being:
etc etc etc
None of these things would ever impact my vote if I felt they were qualified, thats just stupid.
Now with that said a person could be one of those things and it could effect their ability to be qualified but that would be the expectation not the rule.
