The point to this question is this.

i had a meal the other night with some friends, for some odd reason we got onto the topic of the US presidential race (Please keep in mind we are from Edinburgh, Scotland)

The girls at the table all make the point that so far "in a mans world" as they so put it, man has failed.

they reckon a woman leader would change the whole make up of earth and there would be peace.

MY GOD.. imagine a woman on her period in controll of the world.

Picture the scene

Woman President to French Leader - Im Not Happy
French President to Woman President - what is up
Woman President to French Leader - If You Have To Ask That Question...

See where im going.

i dont know about this thread, but our lunch didnt go all to well once this heated debate got going let me tell you.

My opinion. i dont think it would be all that bad.
certainly new

Are you serious? Bringing up a woman being president for some reason always has the same response by some. I can hear it now...

"But what if she's near the button when it's a hardcore PMS day?"

"How can they think clearly while losing blood?"

I mean really, I can imagine why this kind of tepid trash might not go over too well with the opposite sex man.

As for a woman as president, personally, I could care less. The idea that somehow this is going to STOP being a man's world isn't really a reality in the near future if at all (not that I wouldn't like a bit more balance, but I just don't see it happening).

A woman as president surely wouldn't do much in that category.

Women and men are not equal and never will be because we are two totally different animals, but there should be a day when there is some level of legal equality. There is no equality now, although it depends in what area of law you are in as to where the advantage is.

I'm of the impression that we should try to get beyond gender, because solid principles and freedom don't really come with a gender card any more than they come with a race or sexuality card.

It's for everyone, and a woman is as capable as a man, but some men just don't seem to be able to take the effrontery of such an event.

I can understand though, we live in an emasculated yet oddly hyper-masculine country. It's an idiotic mix that I blame on the 60's and 70's in addition to the massive influx of single mothers raising men.

Many topics in here, but your premise is really left wanting.

Good discussion topic, I think.


There are two points I would like to raise on the OP:

1 - Why should I care if our (theoretically) elected CEO is a woman as opposed to a man? There is no imperative of logic that demands 'her' performance would be any more or less effective than 'his.'

2 - Our Presidents are fully indoctrinated in political and party 'dogma' LONG before they are afforded the opportunity to 'serve' the people. So what would make you think that this person has any other 'face' than what we see as the political ideological bias we have come to expect?

Thanks for your replies.

all im trying to do here is recreate the same topic i have had with a lot of people regarding this issue.

i think it is a good topic, and a lot of people will have a lot of new things to day on the matter.

personally, i think any change at this stage is good. and it shows how the world is changing with the candidates that are emerging/emerged

was NOT a dig at girls in office.

more the start of a good discussion perhaps

Queen Elizabeth I is considered one of the greatest monarch in England. She made the country a world power and challenged Spain. I think the argument is moot on whether a woman can lead a world power. That was answered in the 16th Century. Hillary is still young, and she may run in 2016.
