An example of why women shouldn’t/can’t be leaders
the same reason that woman shouldn’t/can’t be priests. Look at that hair. Is Marine Le Pen presenting herself as a prospective president of France, or as a sensuous woman with long, flowing, tangled locks? She wants to be the first, but can’t resist presenting herself as the second. Oh, one can be both? Really? We can tell ourselves that, but it doesn’t change the palpable absurdity and “lack of fit” of a sexy woman in a political leadership position. It is decadence. Western countries with pretty women in high public office change from nation-states to joke-states.
However, here is a more appropriate photograph of Marine:

For all we know of God’s Providence, Marine LePen may be the last, best hope for France.
If she succombs to the blandishments and bad advice of her handlers, she wouldn’t be the first politician to allow himself to be portrayed in a less than authentic light.
But as Western Civilization descends into the abyss, if God should send Ste. Jean as a rescuer, I will not call her a mere girl.
In other words, if a pretty lady with nice hair will be the champion of France, then so be it.

It could be that blonde hair is “laden with meaning” in modern-day France, providing a sub-text to “our region” in the caption. Images have to be interpreted after all, not read. Her facial expression is that of hard-nosed defiance. She’s not smiling. But she is showing her teeth. “Our region needs courage” I keep hoping that “old Europe” snaps out of it and saves everybody.
