    Instead of celebrating **** leaders like Clinton and May because they're women, we should be celebrating brilliant leaders like Merkel who just happen to be women.
    Why do you think May is [going to be] a **** leader?

    "'cus Conservative Party"

    Shame on you.

    But congrats on being indifferent to their gender.

    True.

    What is suspicious about a potato being inanimate? What kind of potatoes do you deal with?

    Nothing Mr Trump has suggested would damage America, unlike Hilary.
    Really? You don't think that getting the Mexicans to pay for and build a wall to keep them out of the US might be a bit inflammatory?

    You don't think that banning Muslims from travelling to the US might provoke foreign outrage from all around the world?

    You don't think that deporting 11 million illegals in the US wouldn't have a massive negative impact on the economy?

    What planet are you on? Trump will divide the US. He certainly won't bring it together. Be prepared for mass civil unrest and rioting if he wins.
    Like he says - making US great again... I think not.

    Yeah - I don't know how he manages to be consistently so good over so many years.

    That is why the world is doomed when they use IDENTITY politics to control us

    Remember when Sanders was called a sexist and getting in the way of progress because he is a man?

    You should simply vote for Hillary, as she is a woman after all and not an evil man!

    Stupid *****

    If Hillary Clinton wins the American presidential election in November, there will be women in charge of five of the leading countries and organisations in the world - the US, the UK, Germany, the IMF and the US Federal Reserve. "

    Who'd have thought? :clap2:

    This seems like great news (I am willing to overlook for the sake of this discussion that Theresa May is a Tory) and I wonder if we will now get even more women leaders coming through in countries that remain (in practise, if not in rhetoric) fiercely hostile to feminism such as Russia and China.

    So go Hillary, go! :woo:

    Do you think that Hilary and Theresa will be more effective at concluding a trade deal that gives proper protection for private investors from the risk of governments introducing environmental legislation or pollution levies, banning products on safety grounds etc that could harm their profits?

    Obama, Cameron and the male leaders of Europe could never get this agreed in TTIP but do you have more confidence in women to actually get the job done? Theresa has shown she is quick to act by scrapping the Department for Climate Change in her second day.

    Gender is more important than ability because reasons!!! I don't care if they're crap at their job, badly qualified or socially detrimental they are women and so = gud.

    This is a stupid point. Their gender is irrelevant, they should be in positioned based on their efficacy. I'm waiting to see how May does, her track record is distinctly mixed but Clinton is a manipulative liar and anyone voting for her is likely being mislead as I doubt she even knows what the truth actually is. As for 'gender is important', no it isn't. They're either good at what they do or they're not.

    The history books will say the year when women took power is the same year that saw the beginning of the end of the world

    The DCC thing may be a red herring - they claim that the climate change agenda still has full weight in the new department - time will tell if they actually mean it.

    I certainly haven't forgotten that Theresa's a Tory and Hill's a neoliberal, if that's what you're pointing out.

    Merkel is far from a brilliant leader
