CNN Opinion: Finland’s prime minister parties like a rock star. We Finns are OK with that

The results of the Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin’s drug are in and we all know that a male head of state would never be subjected to a similar treatment or anywhere close to it. Marin is a victim of misogynist standards, despite her testing negative and not contravening any law or regulation

This will stick with the lady for a long, long time. She’ll be forever self-conscious anytime she wants to let her hair down. Then she will be accused of being stoic, and unsmiling like Angela Merkel. Why can’t we accept people for who they are?

Sanna Marin and all women have every right to have fun and a private life too. We need MORE leaders who dance and have fun like this.

Despite the recent attacks on her, Sanna still remains the most popular member of her cabinet, with 53 percent viewing that she has fared fairly or very well, according to a survey cited in Helsinki Times.

Work hard, play hard.

It’s sad to still witness the double standards between genders in this day and age. After seeing how Sanna Marin has been treated, it would be great to see all politicians getting tested regardless, including all the male politicians who think they can get away with things because of their gender.

It’s none of our business what anyone including a prime minister does in their personal time as long as it’s not breaking any laws, unlike Boris Johnson who has openly broken laws and admitted to them. Men can’t continue defending this. Why is it ok for a woman to play up but not a man, double standards.
