If she's unbiased, probably not. I can't see it going to anyone except Snowden or Pope Francis this year, if it's not US-centric. Or perhaps to some LGBT activist, given how many countries have introduced same sex marriage. We shall see if there are any women who significantly affect the world next year.

In terms of people who's influence has been felt around the world, I'd say Pope Francis, Angela Merkel, Edward Snowden, Hassan Rouhani... maybe Barack Obama, but then, the US president will always make the list simply because of how powerful the US is. But I suppose you could say that about all but Snowden on that list...

How about Julian Assange and Elon Musk?

I'm guessing Sebelius, Cruz and indeed Obama are all there for their roles in the US government shutdown more than anything. People were concerned it would lead to world economies freezing up and it was pretty big news.

I'm have Kim ahead of Rouhani personally, North Korea's plans to nuke Hawaii were bigger news than the Iranian settlement.

I'm predicting either Edward Snowden or Pope Francis.

Going back through history, how many women have there been who could have been candidates? How many since it became TIME person of the year?

there are only three women on the ten-person shortlist: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Supreme Court gay rights activist and newly-enshrined legal precedent Edie Windsor, and Miley Cyrus.


If the gents are doing the picking, then Miley Cyrus wins, hands down! :cheers:

Her sales figures and lack of popularity among the older population suggest that such teenagers are in the minority.

Just because she is most popular among "teenagers" doesn't mean most teenagers like her.

Then you're going to have to provide the statistics that support your generalisation that "Teenagers want MC to die".

In my sample of 1 teenager 100% of them want her to die. :P

We all know how temperamental teenagers are. Your sample will probably give a different response next week. :lol:

The Teenagers haven't gotten over the shock of what happened to Hannah Montana, with whom they grew up.

Speaking of street harassment, were you aware that most women oppose the conspiracy by so-called "feminists" to stop that traditional male mating behavior? You weren't? Well, thank goodness Patrick Howley came along to tell you all about how the majority of women really feel.

Quote:
SAM: Have you seen a lot of women….that have said, “Thank god Patrick has stuck up for us, because we were getting worried that all this ogling was going to go away?” I mean, where are these women that are supporting this? Because you’re talking to women now. I’m sure you want to tell us something you can link to.

PATRICK: Well, I believe in Nixon’s idea of a “silent majority”. And I think a lot of people, women and men, are tired of an activist media deciding what is and what is not offensive. I think a lot of women met their significant other* through a situation that would be defined by the progressive movement as offensive.

Thanks for clearing that up, Patrick. Clearly, you are correct and the silent majority of women do not see having some dude leering at your breasts as rude at intrusive. Indeed, he is husband material, and you know how women are about getting married. How do we know women believe this, since women don’t actually say that they love being leered at? Because Patrick Howley knows women. He knows them better than they know themselves.

An Egyptian PSA addresses this issue as well. Trigger warning, though.
