The Democratic Party practices institutional gender apartheid.
Democrats force voters to choose a MALE and FEMALE representative on the State Democratic Executive Committee: prohibiting men and women from running for the same office.
For example, look at the Madison County Probate Judge Election Results where State Representative Laura Hall won the “STATE DEMOCRATIC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (FEMALE), DISTRICT NO. 19″. County Commissioner Bob Harrison won the “STATE DEMOCRATIC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (MALE), DISTRICT NO. 19″.
Rep. Laura and Commissioner Bob are presumably elected with male and female votes in the general elections, but the Democrats apparently believe that Laura can’t compete against Bob (or is it that Bob can’t compete with Laura?).
How can Democrats defend sex-segregation? There are no bona-fide occupational requirements that would exclude women and men from competing IN POLITICS. I’m sure they’ll say that sex-segregation doesn’t imply a lesser social status, but what other conclusions can be drawn?
