Go Figure

I have always prided myself on having an aptitude for numbers but there are things I have trouble figuring out. Seems like we could elect your pet dog, cat, rock, or favorite house plant for President before we will consider electing a woman.

I’m being facetious. But really? ! What gives?

    Our country can be pretty slow in some areas, though I believe it will happen eventually. In the meantime, the women who’ve been running for president lately have had important impact with the issues they’ve raised.

    I just had an argument with my husband about this very topic this morning! He says that it’s not discrimination when a woman can’t seem to be elected, it’s ‘just the way voting works, whomever the majority want wins.” He doesn’t see that people are not voting for a woman because they don’t think a woman can lead, and that if you had a white guy and a woman with the same credentials the white guy would win, just because he is a guy. It’s so frustrating.

      In addition, I think people as so paranoid about electability. I heard quoted that people, when asked on a poll, said they would vote for a woman but they didn’t think their neighbors would so they were worried a woman could not get elected. Maybe they should go ask their neighbors why not? Thank you, Dawn. ๐Ÿ™‚
