    Complete and utter bullsh!t.

    How dare you. Unbelievable ignorance.

    Offensive on every level.

    She might not do better or worse than a man, that is not what I meant. What is a matter of fact that it is very difficult for a woman to break through in politics and become a presidential candidate or a president.

    I see. So it's time to take revenge for the sins of the past, now, on a generation of men who by and large fully support women's rights, by being openly sexist and degrading towards men in general? Is that what we're getting at here?

    I dont know about that mate! When I joined the army at 16 I had no clue about politics and didnt really begin to get interested until the end of my service. Most of the guys I served with could care less about politics and we spent most of our time talking about when we could next get drunk and women we wanted to ****. Serving in the military doesnt make you any more informed than the guy who works in an office 9-5, its not like we sat down and had long discussions about how a certain party would affect our tour etc. We just put our heads down and did whatever we were ordered too.

    Yeah, your original context specifically meant that, however, your additional reasoning needs to be mentioned. You argued that there was a qualitative difference with how a woman would engage in politics. There isn't much of one.

    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 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.

    Thank you for pointing out the insanely obvious.

    This. I get tired of addressing people's notions that what set of genitals you have makes you identical to everyone else with those genitals. I haven't done it for women, or for men, because quite frankly I'd just go blue in the face before I'd get done dispelling all of it.

    Misogyny coming from the Mississippi tea party -- what a shock.
