I think we’re more likely to see a gay man governing Spain before we ever see a straight woman as prime minister

The BBC has its story on the new Icelandic prime minister, Johanna Sigurdardottir, who is 66. Her cabinet is apparently evenly divided amongst ….. females and males – gender.
Johanna Sigurdardottir, named as Iceland’s prime minister on Sunday, is the first openly lesbian head of government in Europe, if not the world – at least in modern times.
The culprit in all this for the holding back of women and others … machismo – where it’s all about control, isn’t it?
