Women Taking Over The World! by tucsonmike on 9 August 2006 1:57am
 
This was also in the Economist. The article spoke about how in modern management positions with changes in technology etc., women tend to do better.

Gee, what will men evolve into LOL! I am trying to imagine the design...

Another 1 000 000 years of evolution will not make man as lovely as woman.

You are so right. Women will be doing the design anyway, LOL!

How do you define "feminists", Sunniva?
 
Re: Women Taking Over The World! by Sunniva on 9 August 2006 1:22pm
 
I'm not very good at explaining things in English, but I'll try.

Well women who for example have / think they have the right to sue MEN for ANYTHING.. (like any tiny bit of sexual harrasment).. Or women who think that both sexes are equal. I mean, women should of course be allowed to have jobs as prime ministers and such, but they have to understand that MEN are the stronger sex. In the "old" days, who was it that went out and hunted for food to feed they're families? Men. Who is it that are supposed to be at home and take care of the children and stuff like that? Women.

I'm not saying that you can't do things diffrently, but that's the way people are designed.. If women were supposed to hunt for food they would have be more like men.. Women are supposed to be FEMININ and men MASKULIN. What would have been the point of two different sexes if they were (like feminists obviously mean) ecactly the same?

This is MY point of view. We live in a free world and are allowed to say what we mean and think. People have to judge for themselves what THEY think is right.

here's a quote from one of my books " Men might have bigger muscles, bigger hearts and lungs, but women have greater stamina, usually greater determination and a certain patient, inexorable will of iron that gets hard things done.." Seeker by Cate Tiernan

It is a matter of debate about the hunter/gatherer hypothesis. Before the link was made between sex and reproduction, women did stay at the homestead to raise children and tend the crops etc. The men went off scavanging/hunting (or maybe to play football : )) but it would appear that the women "owned" the homestead. Once men twigged the sex/reproduction link, the issue of paternity arose and women became the property of men as well as the homestead. This was to try and ensure paternity. However, it has been estimated that, across much of the animal kingdom including Homo sapians, 30% of offspring are not of the pair-bonded male. Genetic technology can now determine paternity to an extremely accurate degree which has alleviated some of the male insecurities but it does not seem to have changed their behaviour much.
Yes, men are physically stronger than women (the number of women suffering domestic violence highlights this) with better upper body strength but they have less stamina, are less successful at multitasking etc. Why do you think physical strength is the only factor in this matter?
I would love to have been able to stay at home and look after my children full time but modern day economics makes this virtually impossible. Now, my children are adult, I nursed my husband until he died and I would love to re-enter the work force but nobody seems to want to employ women over 45 and I am 53!!!
I do not want to be like a man - God forbid but I would like to be granted equal opportunity in more than just lip service from unenforcable legislation. If staying at home and looking after children is so important to society then there should be adequate financial recompense and social status.
Homo sapians have not been designed - we have evolved by adapting to ever changing situations and it would seem that the tide of change demands that we alter our outmoded ideas. This doesn't just apply to matters of gender but also our attitudes to the environment, religion and, most of all, each other.
I think a lot of posturing by men is due to jealousy that they are not the gender that gives birth.

Thanks, King :)

Arty, what do YOU think about feminists? Not the book, what do you think yourself?

PS: I'm not the arguing type, but I'd like to hear other different people's opinions on this subject which I am actually reading about right now.

Sunniva :)
