You might be a Buddhist, but you're no Buddha. Community service doesn't make a person spiritual. And no, my last name isn't Bush.



finally an answer!.......and a judgement.....
so maybe i am no buddha, but i do not judge you personally- only myself.......
so what does that make you then? that is the real question you could be asking yourself.

you know how jesus said something like if your hand offends you, cut it off?
if something makes you angry shouldn't you work on that?

also i didnt say community service. that was an additional 100 hours in my life mandated by the court of boulder, colorado- but that's none of your business. i said volunteering- you know, like at habitat for humanity all way across the country, the red cross, the nature conservancy.....and not for money. they say freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose......

Men hold the highest paid jobs in the world because that's the way we grew up as a species. Women have been restricted to being nurturers and caregivers. Naturally one would expect more men in the high paid jobs than women and more women as caregivers than men. Men have had all the experience and opportunity to excel in academics. Centuries of that societal structure will not be reversed in a few generations. Having said that, and I believe your graph agrees with me here, it does not mean women lack the intellectual depth to achieve anything a man can -- only that fewer of them have had the opportunity to do so.

You brought up X and Y chromosomes only to tell me men have more variance in the end? That is no different than what the graph has already told us.

No one is disputing that men are smart. If not for men and their great contributions to the human race, we would not be where we are today. The exact same thing can be said about women. The simple truth we can all agree upon in here is that we as men and women can achieve more working together than fighting amongst ourselves who is smarter than who. In the end, there's no full-proof decisive way to determine this anyway.

Yep, you're right, men are not immune to it either. I was merely pointing out that there are other factors, physiological for example, that can affect one's performance which have nothing to do with their potential to achieve better. Top professional sportsmen can have off days if they're not in the right frame of mind, point and case, Tiger Woods. This doesn't mean he lacks the potential to be a great golf player, best in the world some might say.

What does what make me? I'm many things to many people. Some good, some bad. The answer to your question depends on what exactly you're asking me.

Who's angry? I've laughed while reading most of the posts in this thread.


i said volunteering- you know, like at habitat for humanity all way across the country, the red cross, the nature conservancy.....and not for money. they say freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose......


Were those not services you provided for communities? Last I checked they were. Community service doesn't necessarily always equate with court mandated work. And again, it doesn't make you spiritual.

well i disagree and i think anything can make you "spiritual" if you do it with a certain intention. even just looking at a flower. for me, a very greedy as well as disabled person, it was doing physical work for the USA. so it was national service, not community, but i think if you have to be so right about everything, that won't matter one bit to you. words are easy to manipulate.........sort of a feminine quality, don't you think?

You see, what your problem is here, is that you've already made up your mind on this issue that women and men are equal.

You can't analyse this topic objectively, because you've already come to a pre-conceived conclusion.

Imagine that, hypothetically men, on average, are more adept than women in certain areas that will help them achieve higher positions in the workplace.

You would never be able to acknowledge that, because you've got an emotional attachment to your view on how the world should be, rather than how it actually is.

I, on the other hand, am more than happy to accept that men and women are equally adept in most departments, if I see or was made aware of any evidence to back it up. I have yet to see any, though.

I have no wish for men to be superior to women, however I got over having an idealist view of how the world should be a long time ago, and now just acknowledge how the world really is - whether it's pc or not.

On the contrary, I readily admit it when I'm proven wrong about something. I've done so recently in fact. Unfortunately for some of the posters in this thread, claiming that one sex is better than the other over and over and over just doesn't make it so. Especially when that opinion is based on a narrow worldview that doesn't allow for any explanations for anything aside from the one that "proves" said opinion is fact.


words are easy to manipulate.........sort of a feminine quality, don't you think?


So tell me, do you have multiple accounts or are you now just picking up accusations others have thrown hoping it'll stick this time since your Bush accusation fell flat? Sure do seem to judge a lot, don't you?

Honestly though, I just find that particular accusation hilarious coming from you since I gave a link to a group who volunteers in communities and also has a website called "Community Service" that's web address is communityservice.org. And I'm the one manipulating words and trying to change their definition?

Men do the Most Dangerous and Thankless Jobs because they WILL, and women Won't.

Men have the Highest paying jobs, because MOSTLY, women lack the capacity to comprehend the complexity of "Work" at the Top of the Hill.


Women have been restricted to being nurturers and caregivers.


Restricted, is not the word that you are looking for.


Allow me to make this perfectly Clear.

Men are better suited for the Jobs in the World that Pay the Greatest amounts of Money.

Men are Better Suited For WORK, than Women Are.


This is BECAUSE, due to the Biological Division of Labor.....

*MEN HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS*

Not only have we been Working.... we have been Inventing NEW TYPES OF WORK.




I know that you want to blame all of this On Society.

Because that would be the most Damaging Thought FOR society, possible.

Feminism is Designed to Attack *THE ARCHITECTURE OF CIVILIZATION*

Which is Men And Women (Them Relating to each-other and helping each-other.)



"Anything You can Do, I can Do Better!"

This is Clearly a Lie.

"A Woman needs a Man Like a Fish Needs A Bicycle"

This is a VICIOUS Lie.

"If I had A Hammer, I'd Smash This Patriarchy!"

And That, is inciting A Mob Uprising.



Let's take a look at that last one.... shall we?

"If I had a Hammer, I'd Smash This Patriarchy."

1. Presumption of Patriarchy.

Western Society WAS all about PROTECTING WOMEN.

How one can call a Society "For Men Only" when the entire society is ABOUT making women's lives as pleasant as possible, is Beyond Me.

2. Emotional Appeal to Attack.



THIS is classical Conditioning.

Meme Propagation....

EMOTIONAL Meme Propagation.

It Is *GAME*

You know....



Pick Up Artistry?




I am sure you have heard of the practice....

The Feminist Movement Was *GAMED* into existence.

Women were told *Deliberate* Half Truths in order to SET their perspective as "Opposed to Men"



This Was All Done By Rockefeller.... and His Marxist, Feminist Daughter.
en.wikipedia.org...

en.wikipedia.org...


It was a Deliberate Attack on the SOCIETY of the Western World, in order to DOUBLE the labor Force, and get children into indoctrination (School) as EARLY as possible.

There... the Children would Largely raise themselves(mentally), loosely governed by less and Less teachers, with more and more "Federal" agenda.

They put Poisons in our Water to make us Dumb, and throw off our sleep cycles, and keep us off balance... (Sleep Deprivation is a Well Known interrogation technique)

They Keep us distracted with WHATEVER pretty, Shiny, Sound and Picture we want....

And they get EVERYONE to hate Everyone.

We become Spies for THEM, against Each-other.

What ELSE did you think that Feminism Was About?

Equality?



Seriously... if "Feminism" Was really about Equality... then they Wouldn't Call it "Feminism"

They would call it the "Humanist" movement, or something Equally Gender Neutral.

What is the Male Equivalent of "Feminist"?


"Masculinist".

But that sounds Sexist, Doesn't it?




Naturally one would expect more men in the high paid jobs than women and more women as caregivers than men.


Naturally.


Men have had all the experience and opportunity to excel in academics.


That is because they Have a Greater Capacity For it.



Centuries of that societal structure will not be reversed in a few generations.


This is NOT the Structure of the society that you are Complaining about.

IT is the STRUCTURE OF YOUR GENETIC CODE.



Having said that


Oh, Here We Go.


and I believe your graph agrees with me here


Oh, I'm absolutely SURE that you FEEL that it Does.


it does not mean women lack the intellectual depth to achieve anything a man can


Are we Talking about Depth, or Ability?

Because Intelligence is an Ability.

IT's not Something that you can LEARN....

IT is Something that You ARE.


only that fewer of them have had the opportunity to do so.


They had Less Opportunity, Because They had Less Ability.



But Now, We have to Hire people who are *LESS QUALIFIED* for a Job, BECAUSE OF THEIR GENDER!


Instead of Hiring the Best Candidate.


And, Due to the Nature of Men's Intellectual Variance.

There are MORE High IQ Men, than there Are High IQ Women.



And, During this "Revolution", have you noticed the Economy Sliding?

The Federal Debt levels?

The Shrinking Productive Sector?

The Tyrannical Laws?



Feminism is a Part of their ATTACK STRATEGY.



They Manipulate the Emotions of the WOMEN of America, to get them to DESTROY America, and Enslave its populous.


Because Where the Women Go... the Men Will Follow.



And men are Supposed to Chase, Aren't They?




You brought up X and Y chromosomes only to tell me men have more variance in the end? That is no different than what the graph has already told us.


I was giving you a Mechanism that Explained the Graph.

This is Called Science.


No one is disputing that men are smart. If not for men and their great contributions to the human race, we would not be where we are today. The exact same thing can be said about women.


Yes... but their Contributions Were not in the Same Fields, were they?



The simple truth we can all agree upon in here is that we as men and women can achieve more working together than fighting amongst ourselves who is smarter than who. In the end, there's no full-proof decisive way to determine this anyway.



I just Showed you One.

Hi,

I saw some threads regarding women's rights and thought it would be a good idea to ask the question: why do women allow themselves to be subjugated by social conditioning telling them to - among other things - wear heels, dresses and grow their hair long? Or, perhaps, this isn't subjugation at all? It's a thought-terminating-cliche, you might think, but is it really that obvious?

Cheers.


This is an outrageous statement. I am a women. I use the gym, I wear heels and have my hair long. I love summer dresses and I also love jeans. It ridiculous to say we are conditioned to wear that anymore than I can say men are conditions to wear suits to work, short hair, beer bellies. we are all conditioned to act according to how society likes and expects us to act. It by no means defines us as individuals and we should be glad that in someways these small conditions are there. Could you imagine if there were no formalities and you had to think everyday what style of clothes to wear. what style to wear your hair. How to talk? I mean somethings make life easier. Otherwise a great deal of us would never leave the house because we would be stuck in front of the mirror trying to decide this from that!

I am no more conditioned that the average man. We are all programmed to some extent. You just have to use it too your advantage or suffer the indignity of blending in!

Perhaps conditioned to be weak-minded.

I have had thoughts about this, how the corporate hand plays us all.
And I have always suggested it had something to do with our natural male/female behaviour.
We all know, that females in other races also make themselves stand out for the potential mate.
I think this is a part of us that is pretty easily exploited.

"Buy this , look like that or else the males wont want you'

The males on their turn start to think that certain looks or added values matter in the decision because of social factors, where of course only the health of the female matters.
And so we are kept running around catching up with the latest whatever.

Now I think females are targeted the most in this through glossy-magazines, mtv, stuff like that and with that are more subject to 'weak-mindedness' running around buying that newest eye-liner.
Men on their part run after these ladies and do everything to be accepted by the 'up to date' female(and everyone whos watching OHNO).

But the question said weak in general.
Now it could have been said that the ladies stayed home all day and have more, but lighter, work there.
Where the men went out and do all the supposed manwork, hehe.
It seems to have always been this way and in that sense the women didn;t get as much excecise as men and thus have gotten less chance to get stronger.

But of course the male and female bodies are noticeably different.
Males tend to be buildt for heavier duty stuff.
It seems to me that, for whatever it is, its a natural 'plan'.

So in that sense, if some entity where to keep women physically weaker it would be nature.

The question is, who's exploiting this?

My gf is the sweetest, hottest but don't tell her she's the weaker sex. If you do she'll knock your effin head off!

She likes to be beautiful because she's a woman. A true woman's brain is wired that way by nature and I'm so glad it is. Me likey

Who cares about the oppressor class. Seriously, the Matriarchy is the most oppressive social structure ever and is doomed to the same fate of other fascist social structures.

This kind of thinking cracks me up. In most of nature it is the male who "beautifies" to entice a mate.

In some (perhaps many) human cultures it is/was the male who performed rituals - often in elaborate dress to not only show his prowess - - but his worthiness to the female.

What changed? It is actually my experience - - women dress to compete with other women - - and its usually not about the man at all.

Anyway - - "women in force". Women may be physically weaker then most men - - - but "women in force" have always been powerful. Only women can make women strong and powerful - - by uniting.
