    It's because I see this as a very simple question that I feel like you’re doing everything in your power to not answer the question.
    It's not so much that I'm trying to avoid the question, but rather that I am not sure what my answer would be, so I am attempting to find a difference (other than their sex) between the two imaginary candidates so that I can choose one.

    Then again, I did already answer this question; it just was after the sentence you quoted.

    Regarding your question as to what difficulties I would have with a question of "all things being equal, should children be placed with a straight couple or a gay couple for adoption"?

    I would say if there was a choice, it would be best that the child be placed with a female/male couple. My opinion.

    And see there's nothing wrong with voting for a woman for the novelty.

    There's nothing sexist about that at all, so don't let anyone tell you so in the future

    I was refering to reality. You guys are refering to the hypothetical presented in the poll.

    I'd pick whoevers voice I found nicer to listen to.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    If the only difference is gender (a practical impossibility incidentally,) then I'd need more information, namely what office are they running for?

    This would be most important if the position involved military decisions, such as in the presidency.

    While individuals vary of course, there tend to be differences in that way men and women think.

    A military choice can involved inflicting pain and destruction, and the loss of life, cruelty and a willingness to be utterly blind to the suffering of others.

    Obviously a woman has a problem here.

    In other words, a man would know when to stop!
