    "It's the same people who were here a 100yrs ago" that is pure misandristic sexism. Does a woman automatically represent all women? Does a man automatically represent all men? Such group think is what is destroying our nation. People are able to represent other people irrespective of their gender, race, or any other preference. Vote for a person's policies not for their group identity: otherwise its just sexism or racism.

    Women have never been without representation. They have been represented by their husbands in the past, and they should still be. A legislative body is no place for women.

    There should be 100% females, then there would be equality, and there would be no reasons to complain anymore, maybe…

    As a straight, white, ibertarian man, I would rather have a gay, black, libertarian woman represent me than a white, male, liberal. If fact, that is what "represent" means. If I were racist, sexist, or homophobic, I would feel didifferently.
    Rationalize as you wish, your video is divisive, disgusting, and hypocritical.
