Women are not Necessarily Better for 'The Job'
My mum and dad have been majorly into it since I was a kid, and I think that turned me off.
There's not much I care for less than politics, other than, maybe, sport.
No, that's not true.
I like sport better than politics.
And I hate sport.
So I'm not here to say anything enlightening or voice my opinion on the whole #spill thing that happened on Twitter last night.
(I still don't even know what that means...I know...I'm very sorry...please excuse such extreme ignorance.)
I just want to say one thing because this is annoying me.
Having a woman Prime Minister of Australia is not good, just because she's a woman.
If you like Julia Gillard, that's fine.
(Because if I was a betting woman, which I'm not, I would put money on her being the new PM today.)
But if you just want to see a woman in the job?
That's not right, surely?
There are only two people currently in politics that I would like to see hold the position.
Neither of them are her, and I'm not saying who.
I just think that a woman is not going to do a better job, just because she's a woman.
Right, stepping off my soap box.
I just needed to get that out.
