In Quinn’s Loss, Questions About
Role of Gender and Sexuality

New York Times, by JODI KANTOR and KATE TAYLOR

Posted By:drive, 9/12/2013 9:10:04 AM

In July, two dozen accomplished women — bankers, law firm partners and technology executives — sat Christine C. Quinn down in a conference room in the Met Life building for some honest talk about her quest to become New York’s first female mayor. They were getting worried, they told her, as they watched her slip in the polls and struggle to respond to attacks. The participants, including Mary Ann Tighe, the real estate executive, and Diana L. Taylor, girlfriend of the current mayor, warned Ms. Quinn that a woman seeking power always faced perils and that the very qualities that had

Oh please. She lost because she accepted Bloomberg´s bribe and made it possible for his 3rd term

Funny - Elizabeth !, Cleopatra, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Catherine Medici, Empress Maria Theresa, Catherine the Great etc. did not have this problem. Maybe the NY Times should finally learn some history. We really need to stop pretending that the 1960s did anything of value for women.

Also, Indira Ghandi and Golda Meir come to mind. I would say they had a slightly harder time getting elected and then governing a country than anyone would have running a city, even New York.

in this loss, and the recall votes in Colorado, we see the Left´s answer to why their candidate lost an election.

If it´s a Democrat primary - it´s sexism/racism/anythingism.

If it´s a loss to a Republican, add it "Voter Suppression"

It´s actually kinda interesting that the NYT´s is calling out it´s base as misygonists and homophobes! No Republicans to blame. I thought the left was enlightened and past all that. Who knew?

Also Margaret Thatcher and my distant cousin, Lady Nancy Astor. Lady Astor was a nasty piece of work, but she was the first female seated in Parliament.

The NYT´s is showing it´s lack of historical prospective...they proabaly have no recollection of Bella Abzug (D, NYC). She was pug-ugly, fashion-challenged, and had a voice that could strip paint off a car. She was an affront to all the senses.

I love the example of two strong New York women: Eleanor Roosevelt never ran for public office and Anna Wintour is a Brit. If that´s all they got, it´s safe to say the mayor of the Big Apple won´t be female anytime soon.

Anne of Britany ~ now there´s a gal ~ married THREE KINGS!

When she died they set her aside a few days in a temporary grave in a place where she´d been passing through. Then, they dug her up and put her in another temporary grave, then apparently a third one and finally removed her heart to go one place, and the rest of her somewhere else.

But there was nothing fancy about her end even though she was the richest woman of her time and VERY popular!

I think she was pregnant about 20 times and 1 survived ~ rather common sort of thing in those days.

In Chile, the two candidates for president in November are both blonde haired women. One will win and will join female presidents in Argentina (admittedly a nut) and Brazil.

These claims about gender and sexuality are nonsense. San Francisco elects lesbians all the time and New York has the same morals.

The mayor of Houston (the 3rd largest city in this country and right in the heart of conservative Texas) is currently a lesbian. She didn´t hide it, but she sure didn´t make it the centerpiece of her campaign either.

If a lesbian can win in conservative Texas, but can´t in ultra-lie-beral New York City, what does that say about who the real "homophobes" are???

As for New York women politicians, add to the above lists Shirley Chisholm, who represnted Brooklyn in Congress -- probably first black woman to be sent to Congress. Also Liz Holtzman, former Brooklyn DA and congresswoman. What about Hillary? (how soon we forget) and Gillibrand is a current senator.

Maybe, just maybe, Quinn´s too liberal even for the liberal Democrat primary voters in New York.

Perhaps this says more about the role of gender and sexuality in politics. People are willing to vote against someone even if they´re in a "politically correct" gender or sexual status because they don´t agree with their political views.

Would be nice when racial background is added to that so that the accolytes and media whores of our Dear Leader(US) can´t scream "racist" because some lowly peon disagrees with the wise views of our wonderful leader.

The unasked questions with homosexuals is always:" In what OTHER ways are they mentally deranged?"

Sorry, not supporting homosexuals for any political office if I know about it. It is proof of mental abnormality of a level that many are unwilling to pretend is unimportant.

The ironworker who parachuted from One World Trade Center said his death-defying leap was “amazing,” but it’s not something he would try again. “No, I wouldn’t do it again,” said James Brady, 32, who BASE jumped off the roof of the tallest building in the nation last September, along with two fellow thrill-seekers. “It’s amazing,” he told The Post when asked to describe the now-infamous plunge. “If you could take the realest, happiest moment of your life and relive that, that’s what it’s like.” “It’s just the realest moment you can experience,” said Brady, who faces serious criminal charges for the stunt.

SYDNEY—An unmanned vehicle was due to begin searching the Indian Ocean seabed for wreckage from Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.33% Flight 370 on Monday, as authorities lost hope of detecting any new signals from the missing jet´s black-box flight recorders. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is leading the multinational search, said a series of "ping" signals detected last week by a U.S. Navy black box detector remains the most promising lead in the search for the plane, which disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8.

Several years ago, I happened to tune into a radio broadcast called "Jewish News and Views," conducted by Shifra Hoffman. The callers were berating Ms. Hoffman for spreading what they called the myth of rampant anti-Semitism. One man said he was tired of hearing about the Holocaust, and that "we Jews ought to stop whining about it." I called in and identified myself as a Christian who was very much aware of widespread but hidden anti-Semitism. I gave her examples of the anti-Semitic remarks I had heard from people in all walks of life who assumed I shared their views because

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare. Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over

NEW YORK — Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week. The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it´s conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it´s nearly impossible to tell.

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign.

WASHINGTON — Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, population 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.
