A ballot measure in Montana that would require an equal number of men and women to serve in the state Legislature is a step closer to getting on the November ballot.

Commenter at link thinks one of the reasons to have more women onboard is they tend to vote for more government.
WTF? In Montana?
How is this even close to constitutional?
Lots of lefties in Montana I mean look at their senators
I know it is a cold winter, obviously a bunch of people’s brains have frozen in Mt.
“What’s next? A quota for Race, Sexual Pref, etc., etc?”
Is there any doubt?
Welcome to socialism, where everything is rationed. Including public office.
Why even have elections? Let’s have the “quota board” select all the public officers. But what will be the makeup of the “quota board?”
That ought to do down well in Disrict 5.
Guess it’s been Californicated.
Well let’s hope an equal number of men and women vote this stupid thing down.
What about Transgendereds? Aren’t they going to have to include slots for them as well?
The western states were way ahead of the rest of the country in women's rights. Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Colorado and Montana were the first to give them the right to vote and hold office. Part of the motivation was because the men wanted to attract the more sturdy women from the east to come out and settle.
This is way, WAY beyond stupid. The only way this can possibly work is if each seat is duplicated so that there can be a male and a female from each district.
Then what do you do when the remainder of the Facebook 56 clamor for ‘equal rights’.
Thanks to Progressives, this is a meaningless effort in an era when a person can legally become a black just by claiming he/she is black, or can legally become a female just by claiming he/she/it is a female.
This smells of discrimination, as there are more women than men.
So Women are still being discrimiated against (sic)
BTW, I want an equal number of postal workers, barmaids and janitors also represented in Montana statehouse
And those who choose each day which “gender” to be.
And Furries!!! Don’t forget Furries.
Typical idiocy of the left. No points for merit, hard work, individual accomplishment. All about sex, race, “equality”. Unreal.
So if a man is elected and there are only women slots available, is it OK if he just self identifies as a female like Brandly Mannning?
I’ll take a Conservative female over a Liberal male any time.
Stupid rule nonetheless.
