We need to start electing women into public office. Men have proven themselves to be too hormonal and irrational to be trusted as leaders.

Sorry, but the women haven’t done a stellar job

We’ve never had a female so what are you comparing it to?

Women in public office. Like the question asks

Sorry. I didn’t recall that being in the question.

I just had a conversation with a group of women who thought the way to stop the refugee crisis was to "stop being mean and let them in". You can go fuck yourself if you think women, especially younger women tend to be more rational than men.

Electing people based on gender rather than merit is rather irresponsible.

We need to elect the most qualified regardless of gender.

That’s sexist and wrong.

I'll assume this is a French poll (tongue in cheek).

Sorry to be a spoiler. I was already in a serious debate mode when I first read your poll.

I did get the whole reversal of the “hormonal” stereotype, but since I find that offensive when men use that against women, I think making light of it gives that kind of thinking more credit than it deserves.

I do not think that is the sole domain of men. Look at HRC, Michelle, Pelosi, Warren and Boxer to name a few.

The most irrational thing men did was let women vote.

Is this a dare?

Our male leaders just need to identify as women. Trade in their blue suits for pantsuits, slap on some makeup, and maybe pop some hormone pills...

I don’t know if this poll is just trying to raise talk or if you seriously think this. It’s your opinion and I respect that. Although, I agree we need more women to represent our country as whole. I’m not going to put them in over someone who can run our country better.

No we don’t...
we need the best person.

Why is gender even an issue here? You vote for the best person for the job, you don't vote based on a candidate's genitalia, that is considered "sexist".

Your vote counts! Start voting for women.

Wert, I wholeheartedly agree with your first statement, but the second is clearly to broad and stereotypical... forced me to answer the poll with a “disagree.” The polling results will thus be meaningless. FYI

There are no polling results on SOH that aren’t meaningless.

Besides, it’s a joke.

So I offer up this perspective: Having more women in leadership positions could indeed counter any exclusive men’s club “locker room” aspect of this problem, but it’s also going to take men in leadership positions to consistently speak out in order to decisively curb the problem.

I didn’t think people would take this so seriously. I thought it was pretty clearly a gag.

{snort} How to turn an old piece of idiocy on its head.

Well, maybe if women just covered themselves more modestly with something, men wouldn't be as tempted in their struggle with lust and they could concentrate on business. Women could wear, oh, maybe something like a burqa. Little girls, little boys, and adolescents too.
