What do you make of this one, Lisa? From the Free Press' insipid editorial of the day, Politics needs women's voices (Warning, not a permalink...)
Among the consequences of our limited female representation in politics, is a loss of strong advocates for social programs.Sexism runs rampant at the Freeps.
The evidence from Karl Marx to Tommy Douglas to Robert Mugabe to Jack Layton would suggest that men are pretty good at coming up with "compassionate" pretexts for lies, theft, and abuse of police powers. (That is to say, good at being "strong advocates for social programs".)
Why would the Free Press expect women to be greedier, more vain, more deceptive, and more self serving than men are? Talk about yer age-old stereotypes.
