In other words the selection process should be transparent to applicants and appeal-able.
But there are so many situations where this is not working, for example every Trash collector I have had is male.

Women choose not to be garbage collectors. Begs the question, which is the more intelligent gender.

They do employ women, when I go into the office all women.

Similar deal with the County, hardly a bloke to be seen in the office.

Not sure there are any scientific studies showing a marked difference in intelligence.

Odd that you go in to an office for them to collect the garbage from you in Colorado.

In the UK, of the current crop there are no women who stand out as being strong PM material. Priti Patel would probably do okay but she would have to do some work on that smirk (that apparently isnt a smirk), and Jess Phillips who would be the perfect Labour leader to replace oh Jeremy ().

Are you suggesting that men and women have different aptitudes after all?

Are you still struggling with these arguments that you continually have with yourself?

Yeah, she'll keep the Labour party in the position that they have become accustomed to. With Jess Phillips I was thinking more entertainment value.

Well that was what I was thinking. But for a moment it looked like Kim was suggesting that women are cleverer than men.
