    I see Finland has a new 5 way co-alition government after the recent election.
    What an astonishing lack of diversity among the leaders.

    I showed the girls in my Politics class and told them, "that's you in 15-20 years!"

    You should not encourage white privilège.

    I recall a British film from the late 60s about such a country. I forget the name, but have a feeling Sean Connery starred. It didn't end well (for men).

    I was going to say "What -childless and single?" Because they are, except for Maria, but who am I to step on someone's dream of becoming the next Emily Thornberry? so I didn't.

    How well do you think the patriarchy has done for women over the last couple of millennia?

    For a second I thought you were being helpful and providing me with the film's title, and instead find a rhetorical question.

    Why do you think it was rhetorical?

    I just googled Nigerian politicians... what a disturbing lack of diversity they have...

    Yes, and I thought I'd take a look next door to Finland, at Sweden's government (a supposedly muliticultural society):

    And if there’s another few thousand years of this, they might just about break even with men.

    In another 5,000 years gender won't exist.
