Gender Double Standards

Boehner < Pelosi.

Someone on Der Tweeter asked me if Boehner would play the crying game.  Yes, he will, but that could be any time, and beside the point.

The problem is, crying to garner public sympathy only works if you’re a woman; we men can’t get away with it.  On the other side of the coin, we can get away with growing old in the public eye in stressful positions of public authority, while women can’t.
