why does it seem more men are interested in conspiracies than women?

Different ways of thinking. Men are problem solvers overall..we are crap listeners (this is a generalization)..but we do like playing detective intellectually.
Women tend to be more empathic towards one another and are less drawn to mysterys verses reasons and feelings behind.

Men are technical, women are functional (general rule)

Men are watchmakers, women use the watch to draw up a schedule.

Both are important in society (women need the watch to schedule, men need their watch to serve a purpose).

This is just a broad generalization. Individually, most of not all women here are the exception to the rule simply by being here to begin with...like saying men don't like to create nice fancy meals...as a average, they don't, but I do..doesn't make me less of a man..

I definitely understand where you're coming from, I think it's because the Conspiracy Community is an internet community similar to a video game community, which is what is basically at the root of everything like LOLcats and Chocolate Rain, kind of a 4Chan sort of thing. But, there are plenty of girls and women on this forum, which I don't consider all that conspiracy-filled, it's more like interesting news mixed with Illuminati politics. I'd also point out conspiracy chicks and the street view. So yes, it's certainly a little guy-heavy, just go look at Infowars' comments, but it's not a guy issue, it's just that the teenage guy culture is what helped spread the conspiracy community, and there are plenty of women and girls, most often without most guys realizing it. But then there is the other side of the coin, the "New Age" community, which I prefer to call the Spiritual community, this is like the female energy to the masculine Illuminati energy. The beginnings of it, with the crazy '80s hair and dolphins/fairies/dragons was certainly a more female dominated field. The spiritual store called Mind, Body, and Soul near me is totally staffed with women, there's only one guy and he and his wife are the owners. The Massage person is a woman, the psychic readers are all women except a gay guy, I generally see more middle-aged women in the store than anything else, and the whole building (house) is painted a bright purple. Another one a little farther away is also staffed with women and a gay guy.

These days it's far more balanced, but it's still the female to the conspiracy male, it's like how cats seem like girls and dogs seem like guys, they're different sides of the same coin, with an alien filling. I have been very surprised by the amount of girls who are not only interested and open to the subjects, but also know some about them. My little brother knows a boyfriend and girlfriend where the girl is a "preppy" cheerleader and knows about the Illuminati, while the guy is a Christian, but is interested in the spirituality stuff my brother posts on his Facebook and he wanted some meditation tips. I have another buddy who I would talk about aliens and spiritual matters and he had some great ideas that came from nowhere but himself that were way ahead of most people, I certainly didn't expect it from him either. Now he has a girlfriend, and she brought up the Illuminati pyramid eye without me ever saying anything about it to her, she's also open to all these subjects. My little brother had 4 girls over who were quite "girly", they loved his crystals and could feel their energy, one held on the whole time and didn't give it back until she was getting in the car to leave. The dad of my friend has had many experiences, has seen UFOs, has had orbs fly in front of him, lived in a haunted house, has had sleep paralysis, and may have been abducted. He knows about the Bildebergs and such, has an interest in UFOs, and is spiritually open, so I gave him a book channeled by Kryon, and he ate it up. My sister also became interested in the Illuminati because her boyfriend was very interested in them and she likes what I have to say on the other issues. Another friend got his girlfriend genuinely interested in the Illuminati subject too. So it's less them being open to it, and less them being exposed to it.

So often times, the Iluminati is a bridge to the spiritual side, it's certainly a bridge to the alien issue and the ancient alien issue, it's almost like a natural progression. First a was interested in documentaries, watched FLOW which made me understand the global water crisis and it's exploitation by globalist groups and a small handful of megaCorps, saw No End In Sight which lays out how we've purposely created two Endless Wars built on false information. Then I gave a ride to a hitchhiker who had had to walk to the gas station to get gas for his empty truck, he ended up working at an Amtrac station by where I live, when telling this story to a guy at work, he brought up concentration camps and 911. He got much of this from his friend who had lived with him and also with my best friend, this guy was quite "liberal" without being dumb enough to be a Democrat, he actually reminds me of Huey Freeman quite a bit, complete with fro. Then I found out someone else I knew was interested in these subjects and told me about Alex Jones, which lead me all over the place reading about the Illuminati. Then one day I heard about Nibiru, looked into that, found Jelaila Starr who is in contact with one of the Nibiruan Pleiadians who was apart of those who created us. So this linked ancient aliens and the Illuminati, and also the current role of the benevolent aliens in assisting us with raising our spirituality for our long awaited return to our rightful dimension and status as Gods. So this opened up all of the different paths, which lead me to people like David Icke and David Wilcock, which brings up all of the Project Camelot people, with all the black budget and such, then you get people like Phil Schneider, linking the malevolent aliens and the Illuminati.

After a while, the bigger picture forms, it's just a matter of bridging the gap, which is what the internet is most useful for. The Illuminati is a great place to start on the path, it's certainly the most popular of all of these subjects, but often women will become interested in one of the other subjects first, which eventually leads them to the Illuminati. The internet happens to be guy leaning, while the Illuminati issue is more a masculine sort of issue, so these combine to make the Conspiracy community filled with more guys, but with plenty of females, since it's not a totally masculine issue. If you look at David Wilcock's blog and compare it to infowars, there's a stark difference in women commenters, Ben Fulford's paid Illuminati leaning blog has quite a few women, and they're often more spiritual leaning.

So even though the conspiracy side is pretty darn guy filled, there are plenty of girls and women, even though the spiritual side is more feminine, there are a huge number of guys, and if you check youtube comments on the spiritual videos, they'll seem mostly like guys. This is because internet culture is a little guy sided, I could go on for a while about why the internet culture is the way it is, but I don't want to, I'm just going to blame single dudes and guy humor.

I liked your post, I thought it was well thought out and interesting.


It would be a little easier to read if you put a few more breaks in there though.

I think it's probably fair to say..

Men are pack hunters and warriors by nature. We think often think in a war like, strategic manner, even though our daily lives rarely require us to do so anymore. Perceiving an organized threat is an important task in survival, so men may be quicker to read into situations that hold potential danger, instinctually.

Because we are an abandoned seed colony and in order to provide structure and stability more of our DNA code had to be modified.The female side of DNA, however, was left to the wayside.

Because of this difference in genetic makeup, men are more curious. This has been the case ever since Adam and Eve or as some scholary people might refer, Adamu .

Learn about the truth of history. Do not regurgiatate main stream propaganda controlled by the chosen people who are here to control the seed colony.

Disclaimer.... I can only speak from my own experiences to date .......


I have found the lack of questioning surrounding " how things work" not just isolated to conspiracies.

Perfect eg.... If you ask a male how a TV works, most men will either know and tell you or make something up to not look stupid. Because part of their ego is directly related to how smart they see themselves.

If you ask a female how her TV works, she will say "who cares, as long as it works " The only time they will be interested is if it is broken. They don't care if they look stupid or uneducated. For them its you who are stupid for asking them in the first place.

Now you can not blame society on this, as the knowledge has been available to both sexes freely since TV was released.

Overall unless something is broken Woman pay zero attention to things. Which is also exactly why most innovators and inventors are male.

Note: I am not saying Woman with that kind of curiosity do not exist. The only girl I ever loved wanted to know how everything worked. But she was literally one in a million.......

I was listening to some talk radio and I realized another place where women are still strong, and that's on talk radio. This is both for local and national talk radio, as much as I don't watch Fox News, they often talk to audience members a bunch and they are often women. Also, this Conservative ascendancy is thanks much in part to women stepping up, they're getting the momma bear instinct, they see the regime purposely destroying our country and they're worried about their kids being enslaved by debt. There's obviously Sarah Palin, love her or hate her, she's for the TEA party and true conservatism and she's the number one enemy of the Republican party, then there is Michelle Bachmann, she's like the female Ron Paul, except the mainstream Conservatives don't think she's a "kook". All the major elections in November had a conservative woman running against the monsters, even if some of them were a little off like Christine O'Donnell, but they were far better than the Repub establishment. They all have their problems, but compared to neo-conservatism, I'd say it's much better. Jesse Ventura is completely against them, but that's just because he's a liberal at heart. He's all about the "center", but he's not intelligent enough to realize that the center is more corrupted than the edges. All I know is that I'd take either of these two women over Joy Behar or John McCain.

Dude, that's pretty sexist. I know plenty of men who clean the house, cook do dishes. While some women I know are the opposite, playing video games and watching crazy movies.

Deny ignorance is the phrase not accept it.

And to answer the question the op presented, i believe it is because from an early age girls are pushed and pressured to act and dress in a certain way or fashion, you noticed in the time when women were fighting for equal rights, they wore pants, hats t shirts. Now every (almost) girl is wearing shanky clothing, going for the latest fad.

Girls looking up to whores as their figure they look up to, which in my opinion, yes is a conspiracy for getting women to act and behave in an "orderly" fashion. Plus biologically women think with the emotional part of their brain, more often than men use the logic part of their brain.

So although they may come up with the same theories, women are less likely to speak out, to avoid in unwanted social status. While most men, don't care, plus men are more likely to think with greed, to come up with a theory, that involves taxpayers money being used in a negative fashion, subconsciencly you may take offense to said event, because it is not money that could be going to making your and other lives easier and more affordable, so they complain, with their theories.

Plus there could be the off chance, that men are more likely to develop a mental disorder (everything is a conspiracy to them)

But i have seen a number of women on here, so my theory could be flawed, I am always open to admitting my flaws, that way I could be right in the future.

I'm female


I'm rather odd though, have lead an unusual life, have extensive education.

I'm weird


It is hard when people try to push you into a certain thing, or lifestyle. This of course goes for men too. They should pay attention too.

Don't be a sheep! It is boring, anyway, IMO.

Seeing as we are 'outing' ourselves... I am a girl! Pretty sure you can't tell that from my avatar or screen name, nor my topics of interest.

I think I'm falling for bigfatfurrytexan. I love a man that helps out with the kids and around the house, but then his appeal could just be his avatar *sigh*

My seeking of the truth began through a passion for all things Bigfoot related (or in Australia Yowie)
My favourite forum is the Mysterious Beasts, but I also look out for Breaking Alternative News.

ATS is THE BEST place to find out what's up in the world generally.

Do women pretend to be men or is that your opinion?

I have never pretended to be anything other than what I am, if someone believes my posts come from a man or woman is totally their own interpretation. I do not have a female or male banner hanging on my tag because it is irrelevant, are my points/thoughts/facts/opinions based on whether I have an inny or an outie?

I don't think so.

Is it because women are in the kitchen more?
Totally kidding. I used to think the same until i came to this website. Believe me, there are just as much women interested in this field as men.

Yawn put it this way every girlfriend I have chosen long term has been intelligent, funny and empowered, and they would have let me know if my fore play was not hitting the spot. Again women do no help themselves by coming into a light hearted debate and questioning our age or education. By your quite frankly piss poor comment I would summarise your partner is #e in bed
