Monstrous sexist outburst from Spanish Mayor

In the wake of the campaign against Sir Timothy Hunt for his remarks to the effect that women cry more than men when criticized, Dalrymple discovers an even more vicious statement, a SHOCKING! effusion of pure, unalloyed misogynist hatred from the newly-elected mayor of Madrid:

Manuela Carmena, who apparently was somewhat reluctant to stand for office, reportedly said that she hoped to bring to politics ‘the values of feminine culture: emotion, empathy, dialogue and listening.’

Now some people might think that this bears a faint resemblance to the kind of thing that Sir Timothy was saying; as indeed on any reasonable understanding it does. Surely emotion has some relation to crying? This being the case, what should we do about the new mayor’s terrible retrograde [and] deeply sexist utterance?
