"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Let me get this straight. There is only ONE woman, in the whole effin United States or China, that is qualified to discuss the global financial crisis???

Let's just say.... somebody's sexism is showing.


  1. PS. I have been having some fun with this photo today.

    I posted it on two forums I frequent: one "conservative" and one "liberal."

    You will not believe the responses I have been getting.....

    Will share later!

  2. Guess which forum this one is from, conservative or liberal:

    "Sometimes I think Hillary has more guts than many of the men sitting at this table... Look at Clueless lookinag at Hillary and thinking " Glad you're here, because I don't know what the HECK they're talking about'..."

  3. And this one:

    "Well, economic prowess doesn't necessarily entail gender equality. Many impoverished nations have women qualified to discuss, but then these nations don't have so much money on the table..."

    Conservative or Liberal?

  4. And one more... Conservative or Liberal?

    "Obama said during the campaign a country should be judged by how it treats its women. From what I can see 9:1 on the American side 9:0 on the Japan side. We still got a long way to go!"

  5. The answer is...

    1. Conservative.

    2. Liberal

    3. Conservative

    Odd to me, that the "Liberal" male does not think economic prowess fits with gender equity. Is he saying that women just can't do math?

    OTOH, the "Conservatives" I am meeting just shock the heck out of me every day.

    Boy was I ever cornfused about who was "pro-woman."

  6. Great find, Syd! Interesting commentary... I don't even know what the liberal comment means.

  7. That liberal comment sounds sexist to me. Is he saying that men are better in math? And that the countries where women are in charge there isn't any money so you don't need to be with math? Yikes, no wonder I stay away from those sites.
