    It is completely irrelevant what the gender of the next President is. What matters is their ability to be the President, their policies and what they can do for the country. :yes:

    There is no downside as it shouldn't matter what the President has "down there".

    Not per se. But, there is a downside to having Hilary in particular.

    Oh wow. Fox says it. Let's all stop thinking and go with Bill Reilly then, as he's so famous for always telling the truth. :rolleyes:

    Gender doesn't matter at all, though it would be interesting to have so many female leaders of superpower countries this year (UK, USA probably, Germany, Brazil and South Korea).

    As a matter of fact though, I wonder what gender Donald Trump was on his home planet.

    Name a woman leader who is or has been respected on the global stage besides Thatcher (who just emulated masculine traits anyway).

    It's quite clear that men are superior and far better suited for this job. If they weren't, then why else would Beyonce have written the song 'If I were a boy' and then gone further to dub it in Spanish?

    There are lots of downsides to having Clinton as President but none of those are related to her gender

    Pretty sure the only downside to a female president are the general downsides to being a women. For example maybe a female president will get really grumpy once a month and mess up trade agreements or something.

    But seriously a male and female president with the same level of ability will perform pretty much identically. The only potentially serious thing that could happen is a pregnancy since being pregnant will have a more severe impact on a women for obvious reasons. And I'm not at all saying it would prevent a female president doing their job.

    NO!! Female empowerment in the right way is fruitful. I believe that Hilary deserves to be president and she would be effective as well. I have a new blog on social issues and I am looking to inspire and empower people myself. Feel free to check it out and share it with anyone who might be interested. (Cheeky advertising I know hehe but I have to start somewhere)
