Two wrongs not make right

Editor, The News:

Re: Losing democracy (News Views, Sept. 21)).

The editorial asks the question, “When is a democracy not a democracy?”

When a political party introduces social engineering into its policies by not allowing a large segment of society based on gender to run for office.

It’s reverse sexism and discriminatory. Two wrongs don’t make it right.
