Women or men?

Who do you think would do a better job of taking charge of world affairs?

Men or women?

And why?

    i dont think its a difference between man or woman that would make the better ruler, but the one with more common sense than book smarts.

    Nothing to do with gender both are equally capable and equally dumb to take this position.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

                Okay, that right there is perfection!

                And the roaring twenties doesn't seem so bad either.

                  Roaring twenties swing music, nothing like it - I love it and if I dare say so myself, I'm not a bad dancer in that style.

                  For a modern twist Terra you might enjoy some music by Paloma Faith...

                    Our planet should be ruled by Vulcans. They're flawlessly logical.

                    The only time we'd have to worry is when they go into Pon farr.

                    Not sure WHAT would happen then.

                        acting is hokey as hell today, but man...what great fun it was.

                      I agree, to a degree.
                      I'm just not sure that flawless logic is the best for leading.
                      How would a Vulcan deal with terrorism?
                      The wanton destruction of innocent people is totally
                      illogical.

                        Actually, you raise a very good point. Silly ole me. Can you just imagine it? A bunch of women ruling the planet on their periods? Blimey! Third world war would quickly break out.

                      At 106 I forget sometimes, sorry.

                      1931 it started to be precise (in Harlem I think) if memory recalls correctly from the jazz of the roaring twenties.

      Think about these women leaders: Cleopatra, Katherine the Great, Golda Mier, Margaret Thatcher. IMO, history shows us women leaders would be pretty much the same as men when it comes to wars and military.

        I hear you Kurt but I'm having a hard time seriously believing a gender that...

        - Gets Penetrated...

        - Get Impregnated...

        - Has Gestation...

        - Gives Birth...


        Let's not forget about...


        - Menstruation...

        - Menopause...


        Would be anywhere near as cruel and bloody as men have been on this planet if...


        ... they had been in charge from the beginning.


        - If all of the above conditions do not make females a much more kinder, gentler gender when compared with the men of this planet, I don't know what else would.


        Note:

        I'm not saying the world would be more prosperous, or more high tech, but I can't imagine it being anywhere near as bloody as it has been...


        ... if females had been in charge from the start.


        But of course, this is just my humble opinion.


        All The Best!!

        Blonde? I am not now and have never been a blond. It's brown, light brown, but brown. Well - mostly grey now, but it's never been blond. Well, that's not true. I did bleach it blond for a year or so in high school. They said on TV that blondes have more fun. So I tried being a blonde. They don't have more fun. Trust me on that one. So it was blonde only for a very short time.

    I Think a Man should be a leader of the world not a women.Because Man has more
    visibility,sense of thinking and power then a women.It is absolutely right that men and women are equal but both have different abilities and also different duties.So to rule any country or world is responsibility of men because men are more capable to lead then women's.

    When it comes to leadership Men are always better than women. So I would vote for men becoming the leader instead of women. The most important reason is Women are more emotional then Men and hence, decisions taken by women are influenced emotionally while it is harder to do so in the case of a men.

      I guess women are more charming and emotional than men. When I see a woman campaigning, I usually feel a connection and the sincerity of what she's saying.

    I think everything is the same: D
    If a man works with the quality and quantity is better than women but get bored quickly, while women work longer endurance than men not easily bored.

    so what you choose??
