Good for Greece. Hopefully she actually is willing to defend the sovereignty of Greece from the EU and Turkey.

I don't care what she identifies as, as long as she kicks out the invaders and protects Europe

But does she have good policies? Policy is much more important than gender, race or sexuality.

Hasn't Greece sworn in a president before? What's the big deal? Equal recognition as all the others, and I don't know or care who they are. Welcome to the world of equality, women! Hahaha. Filthy politician.

Dammit Greece, get some proper last names and stop making things up! It's getting out of hand!

Who really cares if the president is man, woman, [a race], or a freaking bottle of garlic powder?! Greece is falling apart, and is having migrants invading their borders. If I'm not mistaken, Turkish military helped tear down part of Greece's border fence in the past few days, with the help of the Turkish forces. Hopefully she'll get in there, kick some ass, and help save Greece!

People don't seem to realize that the president in Greece has a largely symbolic role (similar to that of the king/queen in a constitutional monarchy). The actual head of government in Greece is the prime minister.
