    Would You Vote a Woman into Presidential Office?

    The United States seems much more resistant to electing women into high positions when compared to Europe and other western countries. So I'm interested to see people's views and how they would vote. Would you vote for a woman who you held all of your views politically and promised to make changes you agreed with? Would you be more like or less likely to vote for your candidate because she's a woman?

    My views: I would be very excited to see a woman who held my views run for president or even vice president. I would be excited to see someone whose views match my own running for office, but her being a woman would be the cherry on top. I would not go so far as to vote for any average woman just because she's a woman, because I feel the first female president is going to be held to higher standards and have her every move scrutinized by her critics. A sub par female president would only set us back.

    I would be happy to vote for a woman who had the qualities that I consider important. She would need to have a toughness and resolve about her that is relatively rare, so my standards would be pretty tough to meet.

    I would not vote for a woman for ANY political office, for ANY reason. Period.

    I'm sure I'll regret asking this, but why not Tigger? Because you feel they wouldn't do a good job, or because it would disrupt gender roles?

    Both. I do not believe that women were ever intended to be involved in the political process at any level. Not as voters, poll workesr, campaign staff members, or candidates.

    I am pretty sure he is just saying that to get a rise out of people.

    You seriously don't think women should have the right to vote?

    Tigger means it. He's been very consistent on the subject.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    If I feel that she's a better option than the other candidates, sure.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: Would You Vote a Woman into Presidential Office?

    I vote for candidates based on their qualifications, their ideas and their sense of pragmatism. Not gender.

    If a black lesbian atheist woman was the one I agreed with the most, she'd get my vote.

    If a hetero white, evangelical man was the one I agreed with the most, he'd get my vote.

    It's that simple. Ideas, not physical attributes.
