    I don't know about the US, but some of our craziest and most horrible(and some of our best) politicians have been women.

    I think Martin Luther King got it right, just exchange colour of their skin with anything you like... gender in this case. There are great female politicians and there are great men in politics, you want the best ones, be it a woman or a man.


    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
    Shit like this actually goes through your fucking brain?

    I haven't had the pleasure of encountering this OP before. Is s/he often this silly and deluded?

    Yes, the only explanation for their to be a god and for him to fuck up this much is because he's a man.

    I guess that includes jokes about women in the citchen?
    Do women actually have jokes like that about men? (This is actually a serious question, because I never seem to hear those)

    Shouldn't this thread be locked then? I mean it started out bashing male congress members.

    OT: No going by the track record of rulers in the world I doubt an all female congress would make decisions any faster.

    Politicians being drawn to public service by something other than 6 figure salaries and lucrative talking/book and other private sector deals after leaving office? I find it very hard to believe.

    I agree. Lock it. I love getting infracted when all I did was ask about the OP's track record, yet the OP can pretty obviously and clearly bash men..... weird logic to me.

    I would love for the OP to bring facts/supporting evidence regarding GENDER, since the main post is about gender vs gender. I'm sorry, "Congress having a low popularity rating" has no evidence it has anything to do with gender.

    I would contest that infraction, you're very likely to get it removed considering how ridiculous it is.

    I cant help but think that man naturally are drawn to public service because they want to get something done. Naturally I think at least in my own point of view. Congress would be more effective under all male leadership. Why? unlike women who rage with hormones and prides. Men I think can better communicate with each other without the catfight thing.

    US Congress has an approval rating of 10 percent. That is correct. Out of a hundred only 10 percent actually approve of the way its run. Lets imagine for a moment we could wipe out all the females in congress and place them with males. Would males be better listeners. Would they be able to disarm a situation and handle things better then current congress.

    If you posted this without context or reference in this forum, I'm fairly certain you would be banned. It would at least be locked.


    OP is ludicrous, sexist, and delusional.


    Here's the approval rating going back to 72:
    http://www.gallup.com/poll/1600/congress-public.aspx

    And here's the slow increase of women in Congress over time:
    http://www.cawp.rutgers.edu/fast_fac...ments/cong.pdf

    There's no correlation. If women were a superior option, then we would have seen low approval ratings of Congress, which would have gone upwards in relation to the number of women. Instead, we see no such correlation. Women are not a superior option- they appear to be an equal one.


    What a bigoted OP, baseless, sexist.

    I didn't even know you could context infractions. I suppose its a mod trying to do their job, this can be a very filthy forum, and I can't really blame mods for trying to do their jobs.

    Do you think it someone copy and pasted this exact original post, but reversed all the gender parts, it would get banned?

    Closing because this thread has mostly just been a place to bash men/women/and the OP and not a real discussion.
