    The woman. It's bizarre that a governmental body meant to identify the needs of all our citizens is so heavily biased in favour of the middle class male variety, and of course because white, middle class men make up the majority of government, their interests are over-represented at the national level. Having a government more representative of the population at large means more equal consideration of the issues that affect all of society, and not just those issues that affect the priveleged few.

    Re: Ceteris Paribus

    If the mother in law was my ex's - I would vote for the candidate that peed her off most, if I marry my current long term girlfriend and this was absolutely "Ceteris Paribus" I would probably end up not voting at all as I wouldn't be able to choose.

    Time for women to have a chance.
    It couldn't possibly get worse could it?

    If their politics and policies are exactly equal why would their gender make a difference in the direction they take the country?

    If you didn't understand her extremely straightforward explanation the first time (in the post you just quoted), then I doubt you'll understand it if she explains it again.

    You know?

    The woman, for the same reason as Anima and Dragonfly (and possibly others; I didn't read the whole thread).
    To throw another brick through the plate-glass window of patriarchy.

    If they were truly equally qualified in every way, they would be equally effective in getting things done. It would be irrational to choose one over the other, except perhaps by leaving it up to chance. Like a coin toss or something.

    If we lived in a society where systematic sexual discrimination didn't exist, a society without a patriarchal, male-dominated power structure, I'd agree with you.

    Unfortunately, there is no society like that on earth, nor has there ever been.
    Yet.

    If their position is exactly the same, they won't be taking the country in any different direction. Nothing will change except the gear between their legs. Gender is a stupid reason to vote for someone.

    So is yours, and it's apparently decidedly inferior to mine.
    Even I know when not to use a contraction and when to use a possessive pronoun.

    No, it's easy to read that statement as meaning that they're identical in terms of experience and background but not that the fundamental psychological differences between men and women have been removed as well.

    I'd vote for a woman just because we haven't seen what would would do.

    It's not necessarily a left/right issue, Maggie Thatcher was a nazi.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
