    And see that's totaly cool. People, I think, are just scared to say that they would have a preference for one gender over another.

    I think that if you are trying to 'trap' posters into showing whether they are sexually discriminatory or have some sort of sex bias with the Presidency, you should word your OP more effectively.
    I agree.

    Furthermore, two identical candidates would have to also be of the same sex, because female and male brains work differently. As such, it would seem that their views would have to be at least slightly different.

    True.

    Hasn't been a female candidate that I could vote for yet, however, at least for the POTUS slot.

    But you have an excellent point.

    If I had to choose between two candidates which had an almost identical platform which I agreed with, had an equal chance of winning the presidential election, and one was male, the other female..... I would have to choose the female, if only because we haven't had a female president yet, and I want to see what it's like.

    In reality is would inspire young women that they can achieve anything they want with the proper education and drive and that their goals will not be limited by their gender.

    I refuse to believe that you don't understand the point of "all things being equal" questions.

    Did you have similer dificulties the last time someone asked "all things being equal, should children be placed with a straight couple or a gay couple for adoption"?

    It's because I see this as a very simple question that I feel like your doing everything in your power to not answer the question.

    If both leaders are equally capable of leading the country then does it really matter who we choose?

    I forgot to answer earlier.

    If all things are equal, then I would vote for the woman based off the fact that we haven't had a woman president.
