Default More gender brainlessness

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-47213640

Meanwhile in Germany parties' mull to have 50% quota females in leading party positions. On average two thirds of party members are males, which would give quota females of course an overrepresentation, it also is doubtful, according to some law experts, that the constitution would allow this, but these days you have to expect just anything.

I am against this gender ideology garbage, and any gender quota in general. They are sexual discrimination against both men and women, they are an offence to both of them, they discriminate against the competent and capable. And often you can see that they do not really represent the interest and priorities and opinions of an awsome majoirty of women if only one would care to ask them.

Because different to what gender ideologists imply with their stupid campaigning, surprisingly many women have more brains than campaigners expect them to have.

You Germans are slow in the Gender parity race. Sad to say Canada beat you to it. Back in 2015 our 'feminist Prime Minister' Justin Trudeau picked a gender equal Cabinet. 15 men and 15 women. Out of 184 Liberal MPs elected only 54 were women or roughly one quarter. How many qualified cabinet members didn't make the cut because of this one can only guess. What an idiot.

Forget the equality and go purely on capability.

Indeed. I have no problem with private companies doing this 'social engineering, it's their dime and their problem. When it comes to tax payer funded decision making the taxpayer deserves the best possible candidate in every position.

Depends on the gender they identify as (as we now know mis-gendering people on the internet is an arrestable offense in some jurisdictions). So they might need a helicopter quota.

LGBT Sports Group Drops Martina Navratilova Over Objections to Transgender Athletes


And why is that you ask?


Quote:
Navratilova has expressed alarm about the rush to allow biological men to compete with women in women's sports. "You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women," she tweeted last December. "There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard."

"Letting men compete as women simply if they change their name and take hormones is unfair — no matter how those athletes may throw their weight around."

"A man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organization is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires," Navratilova wrote.

"It’s insane and it’s cheating," the tennis legend continued. "I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair."
