Feminism on the March


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Feminism on the March

Postby Marlow » Tue Mar 19, 2013 9:09 am

It is too early for a female International Olympic Committee (IOC) President, according to Ingrid Beutler, SportAccord's director of social responsibility and integrity units

Thank you, Phyllis Schlafly*.

Sexual harassment on the job is not a problem for virtuous women.
After Big Media, U.S. colleges and universities are the biggest enemies of the values of red-state Americans.

I think her point is women are perhaps not good at being oligarchs which is a prerequisite of the head of the IOC.

For instance, two examples which exemplifies the IOC are the Vatican and the Russian Mafia.
How many women are in charge in those outfits?

Of course, her crime was to admit such a thing. Off to Siberia!

Yes, Maggie had those traits to be a good oligarch, but we know how that ended up....those public school old boys finally had enough.

And those corrupt ways will persist until such time that a good woman is put in charge and cleans out the vipers nest.

Probably as likely the Vatican elected a Popess(?) and the Russian Mafia being nice.

I suppose the IOC could elect some figurehead like the British Universities do with their Chancellors, while the Vice Chancellor really runs things. They could give our newly elected IOC Popess a little crown and have her go around saying how fine everything looks and drugs are really bad and so on....she could even go down to the Olympic Village and shakes hands and wave!

Or Uma Thurman in Kill Bill. That would certainly shake up the IOC.
