If woman are so much smarter, then why have they been our servants since the dawn of time?


How many women have died on the battlefield or doing the dangerous back breaking jobs of history? For being the masters its kinda strange that we get stuck with alot of the worst jobs.

We call whites who believe they are better than other races "white supremists".
We call people that hate jews "anti semites".
What do we call women who hate men???
I wonder why michelle is mad at her man?
My wife would never make a remark such as this, we are a team.
It is funny the things you can glean off of people.

I here the word "feminist" used to describe people like that and frankly I think it fits.

Certainly in the modern context of feminism.

Jeez I wish the news guys would stop taking ad libs(not really adlibs maybe but attempts by the speaker to engage their audiences are not nessesarily the body of the speech...so why report that.......) out of political speeches and making like they are a big deal.....
It leads to threads such as this one where much ado is made out of inference rather than substance.....
What other words did she say io wonder.....anything of real inport....hhhmmmmmm

I'm certain women are smarter than men I am fully trained in the fine art of "Yes Dear". Specially when that part of the brain becomes involved called the hypothalamus.

Grain of truth in the humor.

I'm sure my fairer, and better half agrees.

That's right the woman is hmm smart-er.

I wonder what 'scientific' studies she'll 'fund' to get the evidence to support her claim?

Just the fact she said this, proves many things, except the one she's claiming.

The statement, made in any direction (women>men, men>women, etc) is a flawed generalization at best.

Neither as an entire group is superior in intelligence to the other. I've met some brilliant minds, and it makes no difference the gender. The exact same goes for people who have a severe lack of 'smarts' as well - there is no gender bias as the first 'lady' has claimed.

She certainly doesn't behave lady-like, does she? Rude is rude, and in no way is lady-like.


*facepalm*

OK I'll go ahead and bite at this one.

In the setting (Africa) I honestly think she may be right, even here in the US, many African women seem to have more common sense than their counterparts.

Across all races actually, women score an average of 1-2points higher than men on IQ tests. And yes, I know IQ does not represent intelligence as a whole.

I personally believe women are better at qualitative reasoning, while men excel at quantitative reasoning, and I believe there are some very firm evolutionary reasons behind that.

Here is a thread that deserves a quote from Kay from Men in Black



A fact to remember when it comes to the 'mob'.

On one hand. Not all women are smarter then men. I was no raised to believe one way or the other. But from experience. Most women are smarter then me.

It's easy to see why she would think this being married to arguably the worst President we have ever had and the myriad of mistakes he never learns from.

It's called emasculation of men.

A lot of it going on these days.

Good to see you have a loyal partner in life.

This thread has induced many to to demonstrate stupidity, bigotry, ignorance and an overwhelming lack of humor.

However, she was having fun and the truth does not support her (except as to us being outnumbered).

So here's the State Of The Art information about this misunderstood discrepancy.......

Oh, go on… so "funny".

Ignorance is displayed by those who fail to remember that division between class, race, religion, politics and yes, sex has always been promoted to keep the people divided and bickering amongst themselves.

She knew what she was doing, or failing that should at least know that her position in the limelight should caution her to say such a thing.

Really? One better than the other?

Oh, good lets start another Holy War, then arm both sides…

Divide and Rule.
