Re: 3 days away till our future is decided
Don't know how a topic on the election became a debate on men and women...but since it did, here's my take.
Men and Women in this day and age....not really that much different aside from a pair of tits. In regards to ability in the workforce. How many women do ya see doing construction jobs? Not alot. But ya do see'em. How many male nurses are there in the field of medicine and hospitals? What once laid within a title no longer holds precidence. So we've moved forward in that regard.
In business, there's always going to be a glass ceiling. There's always going to be someone held down. But it's more than likely got nothing to do with a persons sex. (race is another question) Women have proven they can be as ruthless and decisive as men in the buisiness world.
In terms of a woman president (which, come the next election, we could be lookin at one on the ballot in Hillary Clinton) I say it'd probably bring more harm than good. In regards to the nation, it'd help. We'd finaly start lookin at ourselves, instead of focusing on fixing the rest of the world's problems. But in the eye's of the rest of the world, they'd see that as a sign of weakness. All over the globe, look at the ratio of Male leaders compared to Female ones. Staggeringly in favor of the men. And with the ruins W. has left our relations with other nations, (hopefuly in this term that'll change) do we need that going against us aswell?
There's always going to be another side to the story with this. Someday the book'll be closed, but I don't see it happening any time soon. Unfortunately.
