    True, but if someone feels that women shouldn't vote, I thought it best they be able to voice their view anonymously, perhaps as a better gauge of people's feelings.

    Re: Women voting, bad idea?

    When the suffrage movement was kicking along slowly after being resoundingly defeated during the 1860s and 1870s, there was a twin narrative going on ever since:

    1) Women would be tainted by politics. It goes against their nurturing and moral aspects. Conversely they would bring an emotionalism that is far too destructive to statescraft.
    2) Women would enhance politics. Politics are dominated by men that debase humanity through political conflict and war. Women would remove both.

    The former was more often espoused by conservative men (and women). The latter was proclaimed by suffragists convinced of their moral calling, and at the same time, in contrast to the African American and the immigrant.

    Well this'll be a close poll

    Of course women should have the right to vote. This is a non-question for anyone who's not... I dunno what. Really, really stupid.


    To broaden the topic a little bit, though, I do find this particular brand of woman-on-women sexism kind of interesting, though. I see it all the time. Women, as individuals, will shout until they are blue in the face about how we need more women in the workplace and whatnot, and yet I constantly hear women complaining about how much they hate working with other women, lol. Always makes me chuckle.

    Not really breaking news, so I didn't put it there.

    What say you, should women be voting?
    If anything it is the men who should be barred from voting. They are the really risky voters because they vote on sentiment, testosterone, good old boy feeling with the candidate, dislike of the other man/woman without really listening to their points of view and most importantly, they usually vote for other men even when there are better qualified women in the race too.

    That's just politics. The suffragists we now idolize were just as guilty of silly sentiments as what you describe above in addition to your own proposition.

    Depends on the woman.

    If she agrees with me, it's a great idea.

    If not, a terrible one.

    That is your opinion, in a time of crisis usually it is cooler heads that prevail and IMHO, women do that better than men.

    I did not say that men should be barred from voting, but if it was the choice of either barring women from voting or men from voting, barring men from voting would be the smarter option for all the reasons I mentioned.
