Calm down, this is not my personal belief, but it is the belief of someone I came in contact with a couple of days ago and I'm still in shock. I was at work and found myself in the middle of a political discussion that shouldn't have happend, especially in the workplace.

This individual boldly stated that Hillary Clinton or any woman should never hold the highest office in government simply because of her gender." The presidency has always been held by a man and it's a man's job to lead the country, just as it's a man's job to be the head of the household." " It's innapropriate for a woman to lead because biblically God teaches a woman to be submissive and to only speak when spoken too."

Can you imagine me standing there with my mouth wide open in disbelief? I quickly left the room in an attempt to digest what I'd just heard. I've not written about the current campaign for The White House because I simply don't know enough about the candidates and their platforms yet( I usually wait until the last minute to pay attention to what they're saying).

Barack Obama's race just isn't enough for me to give him my vote and Hillary Clinton's "secret" alliance with the HRC isn't enough to make me believe she's in my gay corner.

But what disturbed me the most about this person's comments were the sexist and anti-feminist overtone of their argument. Not to forget that the person who said all of these ridiculous things is a WOMAN .

I'm dying to know what you guys think about this one.

(Darian said it was a woman making these comment.)

Internalized self-hatred is a *b* in whatever form it presents itself.

But since she said God teaches women to be submissive and only speak when spoken too, you should have told her to shut up and get back in the kitchen, to see how she'd react.
