@marymredoutey1 @sarahcpr @JaneMayerNYer @xeni Got it. No problem.
To be clear... I completely agree with the general sense of your reply. It is a proven fact, one I champion, that to improve any social system, esp at the level of families, towns,communities..women must be empowered. Not a little. A lot. And when they
@marymredoutey1 @sarahcpr @JaneMayerNYer @xeni are empowered, esp as to the family economics, education, and etc... everything starts getting better.
What I don't know is whether these qualities Necessarily follow when the level is shifted to these national levels. It may. But I wonder if the gender differences begin to
@marymredoutey1 @sarahcpr @JaneMayerNYer @xeni 3/ lessen as the context of power changes. That ones character comes more to the fore rather than innate qualities of "woman" vs "man". It is my starting position that the discussion is confounded by political necessisties where the PC statement starts where this thread
@marymredoutey1 @sarahcpr @JaneMayerNYer @xeni 4/ starts... Ie, A blanket Woman as Gender vs Man as Gender... Taking into account none of the more important qualities at either the feminine vs masculine energies/qualities - which are not gender specific - or character issues.
@marymredoutey1 @sarahcpr @JaneMayerNYer @xeni 5/ I do not know for sure... I think the conversation is conflated and very indistinct. I hope it is true. I see no evidence that it is a priori true. You cite a few examples, all good. All agreed.
What happens when I cite the new MS Senator. A woman. But as vile a
@marymredoutey1 @sarahcpr @JaneMayerNYer @xeni 6/ A woman, yes, but as vile a person I have seen on the national stage in a long time. Rivaling Ted Cruz.
I hope you see the distinctions I am making, and thus the real question(s) I am asking. I don't have answers at this point. I am not advocating for a thing.
@marymredoutey1 @sarahcpr @JaneMayerNYer @xeni 7/ Except, perhaps, to try and move the conversation from this long stuck place of gender analysis and get into deeper waters... that I assert will be more profitable and useful. We are stuck on genitals. We ought be considering other, deeper qualities. IMO.
