The odd man out

The first time you get a female head of state, it's a wonderful thing, in a world that has seemed predominated by men. Then you discover that the women aren't that much better. Finallly, gender means nothng as opposed to their ability, because each can be equally shitty.
Spoken as someone who went 'wheeeeeeee!' at our first female prime minister, and was terribly disappointed. The second isn't impressing, either (excepting her ability to stand up to Donald Trump). But the guy between those two kept collecting scandal after scandal, so I'm still praying for a better head of government, regardless of gender.
