Response to redqueen (Original post)

7. I'm not opposed to it, but I'm uncertain how much it would help either.

The districts that elect insane right wing men would switch to electing right wing insane women instead. Instead of Louie Gohmert we'd have another Michelle Bachmann. It would be fairer, but I don't think it would make much difference. I don't even think it would make much of a difference on women's issues. The people right wing areas send are going to be the type that either already hate women, even if they are one, or are willing to throw women under the bus if they think it will get them ahead.

We're pretty much stuck with terrible representation until we fix redistricting so it can't be gamed.
