In the run for President of the USA, there are people who have problems with a woman holding that high office. One of these backward looking people is Bill O’Reilly who works for Fox News. Bill has issues with race, gender and sexual orientation. Bill simply has issues! He stated that if Hilary wins. the Muslim world will NOT respect her. Sorry, Bill, but as Secretary of State she worked well with Muslim leaders and they respected her. Bill, I am sure, was not happy when he heard that a lesbian was Prime Minister of Iceland. (Johanna Sigurdardóttir). Just to add an aside, these two gay men were elected: Belgium, (Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo) and Luxembourg (Prime Minister Xavier Bettel). Next time, some really ill-informed person tells you that a woman can’t be a world leader – show or send them this blog. paula.
