Perhaps I am not making myself clear on this post.
There have not been historically that many women leaders verses men leaders ...that noticeably large a ratio....historically speaking. What the track
records indicate to me is that women leaders have had no problem sending the soldiers ..mostly men..off to war as have the men. ...even considering
the number of few women leaders that there historically have been.
So what I am saying is that the implication of less wars or even no wars ...if women ran things is to me not true. Or even a all women world.
As long as there are women/people in this world there will still be wars.
That is my understanding ..my read of what the history is stating.
I have found women to be no less competitive than men. They are competitive about different beliefs and values..but no less competitive. What women
often are about this competitiveness is more subtle. But make no mistake ..it is competitiveness nonetheless.
As to women in all kinds of fields..Candyfloss...I should tell you that I am in the shipbuilding field. While more and more women are entering this
field...they are not by and large entering the field in certain of the onboard skills ..and most certainly most are not looking to do this kind of
work as a career..but only to bridge till other options can be found. Work with better conditions...not as much RISK.
However ...to be fair about this..in the electronic age..many males are no longer looking to enter this field..having been raised primarily by
women...and on a diet of television and video games. They too are looking for easier work....Options.
One of the facets of my job involves doing nuclear work. Most women here are not looking to do this kind of work. The men too...and certainly not as
I do not know many electrical lineman..who are women. Nor tree cutters...automobile mechanics. Railroad peoples. Steelworkers..down on the floors of
the plants/smelters. Even home builders..Here in the states even these jobs are quickly being taken over by Mexicans...not women.
What is happening here Candyfloss..is that like the UK...here in the States we are reaching the point economically where we can no longer afford
ourselves if we do not import cheaper labor. You folks have Muslims ...we have Mexicans.
What I am saying here is that the more physically demanding and risky work ...which keeps civilization going...women as a whole are not interested
in going into these areas..and certainly not as a career.
But the sad truth is that it is also so for the caliber of males being raised today.
This is also the another reason an all woman world will not work...economically we cannot afford ourselves at the rates our governments are wont to
inflate the currency...for their views of what it takes to stay in power.,
As to women wearing the burka, I am not in favor of it but that is their custom. In the UK and many parts of the Continent I am aware that there are
significant social problems with this group of people who do not want to assimilate with the locals. They in fact want the locals to assimilate and
move over for them. My mother is from Germany and tells me what is happening there through relatives. The French and those in the Netherlands are
experiencing significant problems with this trend. Most of these problems are being kept out of our News media here in the states next to the
significance of it and what it bodes for us. I am well aware of this ..both about the coming problem and the ignorance of our news media.
I am also a Ham Radio operator and at times get accounts from Hams in other countries.
You are going to have significant problems in the future over this in the UK...it has the potential under circumstances to become a time bomb. Just
I became alarmed when the grandson of an artist...was shot to death, or was it stabbed, in Amsterdam. His name was Van Gogh if I recall, and was
somehow related to the famous painter.
From what I recall about this Van Gogh's beliefs I probably would not agree with him on most things but a person has a right to speak their beliefs
as long as they do not physically injure others. Apparently this was not the case with members of this group you are describing with the burkas.
Gotta go Candyfloss...things to get done here today,
