Should Women Be Allowed To Vote? They May Not Understand Politics Correctly?

Should women be allowed to vote?

I believe they should be but only once they have passed some sort of test to establish they have some intelligence.

They get a little confused with systems, politics etc and certain times of the month they may not be thinking straight.

I think Deathadder is making some perfectly reasonable points, ladys can make crazy decisions when their time of the month comes. And whats wrong with this world today, cant men voice an opinion without being called a ''sexist''? sometimes girls you just have to be a realist without getting all personal, after all its us men that rule the world. Washing, Ironing, Cleaning the house and making dinners are jobs we can only trust Females with, it just seems they are the only jobs they can cope with, just lol.

But i totally agree with what this guy is saying, so my answer is no, women shouldn't be able to vote. Their too crazy and silly.

Who made you a judge?. The constitution of Nigeria makes it clear that there is a right for any citizen to vote and be voted for. I think the constitution is greater than any citizen.

So the point I am responding to is the myth that women are too emotional to think straight and therefore should not vote. Lets examine that.

This world as you say is ruled my men. That's nothing to brag about since about 50% go to bed hungry to some degree and 25% live in a war zone. These wars are almost exclusively started, perpetrated and fought by men. Women have little say in them. Men claim to be providers and protectors yet cannot accomplish the basic need of food for half of us nor safety for many many many, in war, or not. Danger comes from men, not women.

Providers and protectors men are NOT. The dangers women face are from men - not women. How can you protect and be the greatest threat at the same time. Protection by men is a myth you pride yourselves on and hope we will not challenge. Faint hope.

As for being more rational due to being less emotional - lets clarify.

Testosterone drives men's aggression which is EMOTION based action. The predominant emotion spoiling everyone's day is ANGER - the dominion of men.

Men's out of control anger is the reason people don't get to eat or live in safety - you are too busy fighting to solve problems peacefully and constructively and provide and protect out basic needs.

Men have failed to provide basic needs because they are too quick to react with anger, they are too emotional, cannot mature enough to dominate their base emotional nature, their base chemical nature driven by testosterone - which drives ANGER BASED AGGRESSION. If you don't like statistics to prove this point turn on the TV. Count how many stations are showing man behaving aggressively driven by the emotion of anger. Do it and get real.

Seriously, I have run a barnyard. The only way you get peace is to remove the testosterone. The anger\emotion driven turmoil is exactly the same as in the human population.

Women's brains allow them to TRANSLATE emotions into words, not fistfights. They are more able to talk about issues without emotion (anger) driving their actions as is the case with men. Mens brains do not translate emotion into words as effectively which causes them to ACT on EMOTION (anger) because they ACT OUT rather than THINK OUT - hence all the war and hunger in the world. You can't go to war AND plough fields. Men choose war way too often driven by EMOTION.

Women - I am not trying to convince men of this reality. You should know it however and speak up about it. It's a myth that you are too emotional to think just as it was a myth that black people were more immoral and silly than whites and therefore could not be trusted to vote. Sexism is exactly the same as racism. Examine social myths intended to help you put yourself down. Don't expect men to challenge myths designed by men to put you down. Do it yourself. It's not difficult. It just requires a sense of right and wrong and basic willingness to challenge lies. Since you are raising most of the next generation please accept that responsibility and teach it to your children. Peace.

Most car accidents are made by men.

Men Drink and drive.

I think that a man must go for a test once a year to check his Alcohol and agression level.

I think men should only be allowed to drive as from the age of 30.

And till they are 40 only cars with low Horsepower

deathadder i can see that u care about this country. 46 yrs of decision making by men. Lets not argue on gender lines but if u asked me who's effort i could easily recognize in Obj's govt, i'll waste no time in pointing out NAFDAC's Dora Akunyili and Okonjo-Iweala. Unfortunately Okonjo Iweala was not allowed to finish her good work by a Govt filled with day dreaming sycophants who unfortunately happened to be "this type of humans who have something long or short dangling btw thier legs". Men, I guess. Deathadder forget it, and get real with urself.

Who is more sentimental? Someone who gives their honest opinion on a topic that interests them, or someone who suggets that the entire genderfolk should be screened before voting just because he thinks his new wife's reasons for voting are flawed?

You judge.

When I first married, I was surprised to hear my new bride opine that if she voted, her vote would cancel mine as we had differing ideas (hers a bit ill thought through and emotional), and therefore she shouldn't vote.

At the time, I didn't agree, and urged her to go ahead and vote.

But, does a wife's vote negate that of her husband's?

I wonder?

Also the negative comments from some of the women are proving that you are too controlled by emotions. This thread is to provoke thought and you respond with anger!

Please sir, don't make such a statement in public! On what grounds do you base your "facts" that most men follow politics closely and most women don't? I've seen women who, whilst taking care of 4 kids and a husband, are active political leaders and are doing the job just as good as (or even better than) any odd man. Next, you'll be telling me men are averagely more intelligent than women. If anything, it is at "certain times of the month" that we understand things more as then, we begin to see things we ordinarily wouldn't have seen before!

Besides, what is so difficult to understand about politics? Isn't it a thing of interest? The official voting age in Scotland is 16. And children younger than 16 can vote if they show considerabe interest in politics. I can guarantee you that some of these under 16-year-old females can make more rational decisions than several 50-year-old full fledged men!!!

Deathadder makes a very good point, one that had political and societal acceptance not too long ago. The reasons woman obtained suffrage (if you don't know what suffrage means, you should not be able to vote) have very little to do with what was good for women, and mostly everything to do with pushing progressive ideology. Woman are more likely to vote for free college, healthcare, and the rest of the welfare state. That is because they are compassionate in nature, one of the good qualities of women.

The main reason I believe that women should not be able to vote is because they are emotional creatures. I am not knocking this at all, I just don't think its suitable for voting on political issues. If you've ever argued with a girlfriend, or if you're a woman who has argued with a boyfriend, you know logic is usually absent. It's about what the woman is feeling, and the best way to make her stop feeling like that so that both can be at peace. If danger is on the horizon, the BEST course of action for the male is to tell his female companion that "everything is fine". Otherwise, emotion, rather than reason will enter the situation. Many of the wisest, most selfless people that have guided me growing up have told me that women are more emotional rather than reasonable. This is not because they were trying to bring down women, but rather they were trying to teach me how to get along with them. There was no environment of anti-womanness in these conversations, they were telling me what they truly believed from 40+ years of experience.

Do not get me wrong, there are women who are intelligent enough to understand their emotional nature, and separate them from logical decisions. However, for every one of these women, there are twenty that will vote that way because one candidate is "better looking, younger, or more presentable", because "Lady Gaga" likes that candidates, or because "Kim Kardashian thinks so". The girly girls who are in sororities and were popular in high school do not spend that much time speaking about politics because it is simply not "cool to do so". However, every four years they are able to vote on serious issues. When you have 95% of celebrities walking around with an Obama tee-shirt, you can understand where most of those votes will go.

I also believe that there should be a property requirement to vote, as there used to be. If you are in debt, or own no property, why should you have a vote as someone with a real stake in the interest of this country? People who build lives, homes, businesses, land, etc. should have the right to vote. A woman is part of her househould, she should influence her husbands vote if she wishes, but that is all. If a woman is an only child who inherits property, or a widow for that matter, THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO VOTE. This is because the responsibilities of such a woman force her to become informed, involved, and not to make emotional decisions that could cause her to lose what she has.

I believe my post is worth just as much as the entirety of the posts that said things like "omg, are you still be sexist today" or "laughin ma friggen butt off". Just the use of such language proves that you have been corrupted by the decadence of this society. Rome collapsed because its people became dependent and weak. That is what's happening here, and the woman's vote encourages that. Now they want to send women into combat. Get the hell out of here.
