Isn't anyone else saying that?

It would have set women back at least a half-century.

That ship sailed long ago.

I have no idea what that is supposed to mean.

They have all been dreadful. A lot of today's problems can be traced directly back to Thatcher, May was arrogant and Truss well you obviously get that one.

Oh, I understand now. So...do you think all high-ranking women tend to be incompetent?

I think it’s a trend. A woman gets into power and the sexism starts, they have all been pushed out by their party. Boris Johnson was a much bigger arse yet still has support.

this will always happen when a woman is in power - it’s a man’s world.

I've noticed that in America, the two Democratic politicians getting threats to the point of planned physical harm are both women - Nancy Pelosi and Gretchen Whitmer.

Many of today's problems can be traced even more directly to Boris Johnson. If we are seeking a common denominator, I would say Tory rather than Woman.
