    I don't think anyone should vote if they just don't know what the hell's on the ballot.

    I agree with her - though - that some women can be emotionally unstable. So can some men. But does that automatically make them unable to form a knowledgeable view using logic and reasoning? No. There's no evidence that people's various personal or relationship issues makes them hasty or 'unstable' at the voter-box.

    Hardly. Our suffragettes were quite the hot heads. One of my main fascinations was the inner and inter-organization disputes women had with each other, in addition to the Pankhurst tactics of political disputation.

    Ehhhh whatever, same difference. Just the fact that you brought it up out of nowhere and had all this retarded reasoning behind it suggests that you at least somewhat endorse the notion of it, at least.

    Point is, the very basis of your ridiculous post is sexism and stereotyping, and the outcry would be deafening if someone made the same post about women.

    the suffragettes fought against a great injustice, it was that injustice that made them so passionate. We do not live in that day and age anymore, where there are still valid battles to be fought for women's rights today, it is clear to most people that women are equal to men and should be treated that way.

    Watch, THIS is what feminists will want to yell at him for. Not the outright, blatant sexism against men in the first post

    You're romanticizing it. There were many occasions where they sacrificed sure ground over petty disputes, and raked their enemies or even their allies into the coals over the smallest instances. In the earlier years, the two women most known for that were Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It was not until much later in their lives that they developed better political skills, but as middle-aged women they were pretty inept and volatile. They trashed blacks (many of whom were their allies), they trashed their allies, they trashed everyone they could if they remotely stood in their way. There was one occasion where they publicly humiliated a powerful friend just because he didn't want his wife to sign a petition of theirs. They would have had his backing, but they made a stupid public gesture out of anger. Years later one of the two thought it was not a smart move on their part, but they were that reckless repeatedly. In the later period you can look at the Pankhursts and the NWP as well as NAWSA to see the twin problems of World War I in addition to methods. NAWSA was much more supportive of the war and in many senses reproduced the Republican womanhood ideal by supporting their country during time of war (in addition to it being smarter politically). With the Pankhursts, they idolized principled violence and time spent in jail. The NWP did the same thing with violence, but were vehemently anti-war and essentially refused compromise. Nevertheless both groups contrasted themselves with the immigrant and the colored peoples who they thought didn't deserve the vote due to their mass ignorance and complicity to business interests.

    Sexism against men? Where.

    I've read the short little article and op over and over and don't see anything against males there.

    No, it is not the same difference.

    And I did not bring it up out of nowhere, remember the title of the thread and the opinion of the daft tea party lady that said it.

    You might see it as retarded but I disagree, if anyone at all should be barred from voting (and I do not believe someone should be barred from that) it should be men who should be barred and not women.

    IMO, men and women are equal and in centuries this equality will only become stronger. I am not a fan of the "metro-sexual man" but men could do worse than do things a bit more like women do. Emotions and talking things trough between a man and a woman should not be dirty words but common practice.
