“Grow some balls”, “get some cajones” “grow a pair”.
No, there’s no sexism in the small but determined attempt by a handful of old white guys to replace Carole James right when she’s taken the NDP to its highest mark in twenty years.
Absolutely not. The commentators must be right… She’s too nice, she’s a whiner, she’s too strong, she’s too weak and the kicker, she’s a bitch.
Yes, there’s no reason why a woman like her can’t grow balls, as so many of the commentators say.
And then there’s the Sun’s on-line poll – who’s the hottest contender for Premier. Face it, you can’t be a good Premier if you’re a woman but you don’t top the hotness charts.
But let’s leave Carole James out of this.
There’s a real question as to whether you can be a woman and a good leader at all.
Because women remind you of when your mom told you to get off your ass and do your homework.
Because women don’t stop off for a beer after work cause they have to cook dinner, get the kids under control and get a report done for their boss in the morning. Boring!
Because women keep the books in order and let you know that blowing the pay-cheque on a road trip with your high school buddies means the mortgage won’t get paid. Bummer.
Because women get pissed off when you lie and guys always need to lie a little bit – see Gordon Campbell.
Because women don’t appreciate how important it is to talk about stuff, especially your own opinions. They’re always trying to spoil it by doing things.
Because when we let them into university they broke the rules and showed they were smarter than we were.
Because if we let them be Premier, people might see how badly guys screwed it up.
