I think mostly because the rules were written 240 years ago (and Old America reveres those days).
I agree completely, except for one thing.

Yip, times were very different 240 years ago, and the rules were written to support a patriarchal system. The good news is that we are moving back towards a society that serves us better. Trump’s election happened purely because women don’t yet know how to lead like a woman. Clinton’s offering was merely a mirror of what her husband did, and the world doesn’t want more of the same.

I believe what we’re seeing playing out right now is all great news. We’re just going through a bit of an awkward transition right now.
