Being gay, he doesn’t really have a lot of experience with just how nasty women can be... particularly to each other.

Margaret Thatcher, Golda Mier and Indira Gandhi - those would be the primary female national leaders of the last few decades. All led their countries in major shooting wars, and did it well.
