Okay, so in Science today Shneer, Clueless and I started debating whether it would be a good thing to have a black atheist lesbian as president.
Shneer: Well, I doubt there will ever be a homosexual as president. So many people wouldn't vote for them. Anyway, they'd be too biased about gay rights.
Me: Well, you could say that about pretty much everyone. Nobody complains about Obama being too biased about racial minority rights. A woman would be too biased about sex equality. There we go. It would be impossible to have anyone be 100% unbiased there.
Clueless: Still, they wouldn't get many votes…
Me: Haha, they should come out right after being sworn in.
Me: Anyway, whoever would probably get some votes for being a political minority, like Obama and Hilary Clinton did. Not enough, perhaps, but some. Well, I think it still depends on the actual person more than the miniority-ness, but the idea would be good.
Today nothing really important happened at all... I just feel I need to journal because I haven't in a while, and I'm usually pretty regular. I was thinking some deep thoughts today… but I don't feel like typing any of it.
(I'm actually on the phone with Jayjay, so-Sorry for being distracted.)
