This is a response to Lin Cho-shui's (
So rule by both sexes means it's OK for women to appear on the ballot but that they'd better not try to actually exercise power? That the Democratic Progressive Party chose a vice presidential candidate whom they thought to be unfit to exercise power?
And, although Lu was strong enough to resist an autocratic government, even to the extent of spending many years in prison, she is not strong enough to govern?
These statements are insulting not only to the vice president, but to all women. Lin should either explain himself or immediately apologize.
