Im a boy and i believe girls rule the world because they give birth and dont have dangling testicles hanging between their legs like we boys do. Women dont need us and they are better at working and learning than we boys. The only thing we boys are good for girls are our dicks. For the rest, girls can do better alone at everything
This is over generalized.... Women should not " Run the world" by virtue of having a vagina... But, a woman has an equal claim as a man and if superior or equally qualified, the woman has a claim. Equality is the only way to really have a logical human civilization going forward. Besides, gender will become less relevant in time.
Well I cannot speak for the world, but I can speak as a citizen of the country that I unfortunately live in: the united states (of america). Now the nay-sayers can say that I am reading the question incorrectly, and to them I would say simply that I am reinterpreting the question.
Women have been and still are vastly underrepresented in US government, like somewhere like less than 20% for a demographic that represents 50% of the country. To give you the reader an idea of how bad that is "democratic" Iraq (only in quotation marks because of the instability of the region and the US involvement but still) has women representing about 38% last time I checked on their government statistics. So in an america where affirmative action is very active for racial issues at least, why not for the female population in government. I could honestly see that being justified, but of course affirmative action is an executive order that is made by the presidents of recent past. Either way with the way that the mainstream media was putting down Hillary Clinton & Sarah Palin in the 2008 presidential election with the endless hormonal jokes/arguments this is really a tragedy that is plaguing the United States (tragedy being misogyny). So through those eyes I would have to say yes women should rule the united states at least through affirmative action and maybe the world, but we are the most male dominated democracy in the free world and with the level of power we have in international affairs, we have work to do if we are to tell other countries that we do not want them to be practicing other misogynistic practices, because in terms of politics we are only calling the kettle black.
Power should be distributed accordingly by intelligence and capability. If a woman candidate for office is intelligent and more capable than her opponent, I plan on voting for her. If a man is running for office is more qualified than his woman opponent, than it is only logical to vote for that man. Or am I just being sexist?
Which it is. It's people that make these choices, I do not believe in "men<women" or "women<men". It's just silly.
It's sexist to think that women should be the leaders of the world. Everyone should be given the chance to be a leader.
Why would you only want one gender to rule the world?
It would be disastrous. Men don't rule the world, the 1% or, the elite, rule the world, and they are made up of men and woman, and in any case, who cares either way. If you are a woman and you want to get in power, go do it. It's a democracy, and you have the right. Stop whining and go do it.
It's a class issue, not a gender issue.
Men shouldn't rule the world and women shouldn't rule the world. The world needs to be a combination of the two where there are compromises. Gender is not necessarily the most important division in our society. Ideals and beliefs tend to be a lot more tighter of bonds then gender.
Women should be given the same opportunities for positions in world leadership. However, a person should not be selected or rejected as a world leader based on their gender. In a democratic process, politicians are (or should be) elected to serve the public based on demonstrated abilities, their qualifications for the position and on their strengths.
The idea that women should run the world is as inflammatory as the idea that men should, or that any other specific group of people that share a common identity trait should, for that matter. The human world is a shared space by all, and its representatives must be identified by only the characteristic that they are human. If we are to ever break down the barriers that our differences cause, then we must discard all notions that one group is better suited for one task than the other.
To say that women should run the world is every bit as bad as to say that men should. This old-fashioned 'battle of the sexes' mentality causes nothing but division and, as it's never realistic, diverts energy from any real efforts towards equality. We must work towards true and equal partnership between men and women, not towards either taking precedence.
Having one single sex running the world would eventually lead to disaster.
There would be a group of men that would make a stand against them, attempt some sort of coup and before you know it we've got an inter-sex war that tarnishes the planet.
That's an exaggeration, but the general idea still stands. One single sex running things ? Bad idea. Very bad idea.
