Running for presidency ’is not for women’ says Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte

On Thursday, Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte stated that Presidency was ’no job’ for a woman and dismissed the rumors of his daughter running for the same. Although Duterte is popular amongst female voters, he comments that running for President ’is not for women. You know, the emotional set-up of a woman and a man is totally different. You will become a fool here. So… that is the sad story.’

The mantle of leadership is not a weighted object, the idea of a female brain being biologically unable to handle the rigors of such a task is backwards and medieval. If a woman has big balls, I'll listen to her, it doesn't matter if I can bench more than her or if I can shout louder than her, experience and wisdom and patience are virtues to be found in both sexes.

The idea women in general are any better suited than men for holding office is sexist. If women are in politics they are just as likely as men in politics to be currently corrupt and/or corruptible in the future.
