- All female cabinet?
Why? Genuine question. Females can be dicks too. Just like Mtbers, drivers, ramblers, horse riders, etc. I think an equal representation would be more beneficial to get a more balanced approach. An all female/male government is a step backwards in my opinion. Also people, whatever gender, have to be interested in politics (or dipping their fingers in the honeypot, whichever way you look at it) to be motivated enough to put themselves out there and gain momentum for a political campaign. Inspiring our youth in the right manner is a must.Posted 1 month agoSwelperMember

“If any male politician had suggested an all male Brexit party he would at the very minimum be dragged over the coals and asked to resign?Posted 1 month ago
Since she came out with this suggestion there has been a flurry of women coming on various radio chat shows in her defence. It’s OK for women to spout discrimination but would spell the death knell if a man uttered the same for a men-only-Brexit cabinet.”
When you are in a hole always best to stop digging….
It is a generalisation and there are plenty of exceptions, but I would argue, generally and in my experience, women tend to be less tribal and tend to find it easier to establish trust more quickly.
If a male public figure were to say “It is a generalisation and there are plenty of exceptions, but I would argue, generally and in my experience, men tend to be less to catty and get over arguments more quickly” he’d be getting a slap.
Has now apologied for not including any BAME women in her list.
There are women of colour colleagues who are standing up to this government’s reckless gamble with Britain’s future, and it was wrong to overlook them. I apologise to them and all who’ve been hurt by their exclusion.
I suspect there are plenty of recently converted (as seen by their wee spike in popularity) Green voting men feeling a little bit marginalised. I think I might be one of them.
My guess would be its the only way she could think to get some attention from the media.
I fear that might be right – I thought they were better than that. Choosing the right people to do this or any other job should never ever be done by gender or ethnicity and more than a bit depressed that their most visible spokesperson might want to say so.Posted 1 month ago
All of the people I’ve seen objecting to this idea are men.
When you find yourself using the words of Liz Truss to disprove a comment and because they make sense there maybe a tear in the space time continuum and we are all about to disappear up are own arseholes….

Is there anything more sexist than claiming your gender determines your worldview/behaviour/attitude?
