women can never just sit there and keep thier mouth shut. She was clearly on Obama's side.
Yeah I'm serious. Don't say it's not true, I just don't believe women should be a part of the debates because they can't conduct themselves the way men do. I'm not sexist, it just really pissed me off when what could have been Romney's best moment of the debate was ruined by the moderator, and I don't think a male moderator would've done that.
I'll say it: It's not true. You're 100% wrong. And you are 100% sexist. You are the definition of sexist.
I would love to watch you debate my mother. She would rip your ass to shreds.
Do you have children? If so, is one a girl?
Please, if you do, or when you do, raise your daughter with this mindset: Make sure you teach her that women aren't able to keep their mouth shut. Tell her that she should never be allowed in debates because chances are she won't be able to keep her mouth shut. Is that what you will teach your daughter should you have one?
What a ridiculous and blatantly sexist commentary, and there is absolutely no logical, rational, or concrete justification to what you're written here. Don't give me this "I'm just speaking reality here" bullshit either. What you wrote here is the absolute definition of sexist mindset. You think that this person could not keep their mouth shut and the reason for that is because they are female. Definition. Of. Sexist.
So you have never met a man that has ever been unable to keep his mouth shut? Never met a man that has been a horrible moderator? Come on man. There are shitloads of men who can't shut up, talk over you, and are horrific moderators.
Without addressing the controversy raised in this thread, let me ask this: is it sexist to note differences between men and women? If not, why not?
On average, men have more bodily strength than women. Sexist?
On average, men have more aerobic capacity than women. Sexist?
On average, men look at things differently than women. Sexist?
This is not about noting the 'differences between men and women.' That's age old bullshit that sexists use to try to baffle brains and justify their ignorant commentary. What Silver wrote is not 'noting the differences between men and women'. Because the thought or statement that women can't shut up and should not be allowed to debate is ridiculously wrong. As I wrote to Silver, if you've never met a man who can't shut up, or one who talks over you during an argument, or, have never met a woman who is a great moderator or debater, I don't know what to tell you. You're living a different life than I am I guess.
Yes on average men have more bodily strength. Yes on average men have more aerobic capacity than women. Yes on average men and women look at some things differently.
So what? What has that got to do with the price of tea in China?
Are you going to teach your daughter that women can't shut up and shouldn't be allowed in debates?
Side note: You can't say 'without addressing this controversy' and then directly address it.
