    Pretty strange article as I have not seen many arguments why these things could lead to an america that is supposedly “female”.

    But oh well, glad I do not live in a country that has a history full of problems and crisis’ on national levels.

        Notice the part “Full of”, the history I’ve read about the US, I have yet to find a time where peace and stability was an every day thing, even countries like Holland, India and Paraguay beats US to it.

    Not a bad article, but it does seem to be forgetting one important thing, and it’s basic but seems to need repeating: correlation does not equal causation.

          “At least you’re not treated like women are treated.”

          You mean getting everything handed to me on a plate? Getting support all through education, even special courses like “Women’s Studies” etc.? Not having to worry about dying in a war or at the workplace (oil rigs, construction)? Being adopted more often?
          What the hell are you talking about? Maybe you should take another look at the article you’re commenting on.
          No, what you actually mean is “like women WERE treated”. You, and almost all the rest of women, seem to somehow still live in the 50’s of the last century, or even before that. Stop behaving as if you’re fighting for your right to vote, we granted it to you long ago.
          And don’t gimme that crap that women are earning less, that’s just because there are still a lot of women out there that raised kids 20, 30 years ago and then came back to work, while men kept working throughout. Women under the age of 30 now earn up to 8 % MORE than males. I would love to be treated like this. Oh, and let me guess: When women earn more, it’s NOT about discrimination, it’s because they earned it. It’s only discrimination when it’s the other way round.
          This constant hypocrisy and hubris is what makes the modern “loser man” prefer videogames instead of interaction with females.

            “You mean getting everything handed to me on a plate?”

            That happens to both sexes and neither sex at the same time.

            I’ll admit, though, that Women’s Studies is not my idea of feminism moving forward. Might’ve been a long time ago, but not any more. Sill, you’re definitely wrong about women not having to worry about dying in war or the workplace; they do work in dangerous factories and in the military just like men do. It’s just either not seen as often thanks to gender roles instilled in nurture since the beginning of time, and because of public perception (I remember reading a great article on the treatment of female soldiers compared to male soldiers, but I cannot find it again even after searching for several hours).

            And hell, I even cited a court case about work wages and discrimination and you’re still talking bullshit about it. That certainly wasn’t about wanting women to earn more, rather about earning an equal amount, which is the whole point of feminism: equality. Anyone who says otherwise is simply incorrect regardless of what they think they know.

            Which brings me to the last ultimatum: we already know men are discriminated against, too. Everyone is. That’s completely obvious. Feminists actually work toward removing their woes, too (keep in mind, a feminist is not a misandrist or a “femnazi”). It’s all about equality, not a shift in power.

        Earth will not cease to exist unless hit by a very powerfull force that would bash earth in many bits and pieces, however, human life and maybe because of us, many if not all life forms will die out eventually, after that, evolution will do its work again, but it is only a matter of time now.

    Strange thing happens. More females means less males, that means more competition for male’s attention (considering most females are natural not lesbian)….
    I’m male and i often hear from many, many females complains like “there’s no real/good/active (etc) males there (meaning for me)”. And at the same time we have this kind of mentality kind of “F* off men”, “we don’t need them”.
    Only the problem is where there’s no men, there’s no development.

      As a lesbian, I must wonder: are you saying I’m not natural?

      Also, what do you mean by “development,” and why do you say that?

        Umm, I think he means that in nature the normal order of things is
        1. Man has sex with woman
        2. Woman gets pregnant
        3. Woman gives birth, hence “developing” the human race
        I’m not against gays and lesbians, but technically that sexual identification is not natural, otherwise sex (ie. the REPRODUCTIVE act) between two men or two women would also produce off-spring…and yes I do realize that homosexual tendencies/behaviours have been documented in the wild with penguins, monkeys, dolphins and probably many more…

      You’re clueless. Yes. Most women would stay with childhood girlfriends for most of their lives instead of being separated from them, usually by marriage to a man and such. You’d be surprised.

      It’s true what they say: a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.

      No men no development, my ass! lmao. Dude. Women make the best everything, pretty much.

      How is the X inferior? Males have one too; we’re just homologous. The entire purpose of the Y chromosone is to override the innate ‘female-ness’ of an organism.

      Oh, yes, women have all the rights, which is why we’re paid less for the same jobs as men and are expected to handle all of the household chores…

    I’m guessing this article was written by a feminist lesbian?

    Reply
    1. Redhead Metalhead at |

      As a feminist lesbian, I can tell you, “No, it wasn’t.” A feminist is someone who fights for equal rights between the sexes, and it’s called feminism simply because, for that to happen, women have had to gain more rights. Despite popular belief, it is not an ideology toted by a bunch of misandrists. Despite what most people will say, there’s actually still a discrepancy on both sides of the spectrum.

      So considering that and the way this article was written (for instance, calling women “them”), this article obviously has a different agenda going for it, and not one I’m in support of as, you know, a feminist lesbian.

        What rights are women lacking? I ask because i dont know of any rights that men are allowed that women are not also allowed. Im not trying to pick a fight, I realy am confused that there are still unequal rights.

          Feminism has existed for a couple hundred years now, so the gap has definitely shortened since then. However, one big thing I can mention is business practices, which are messed up all over. Women tend to be paid less on average than their male counterparts, and Wal-Mart was sued over it. Despite what the first part of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution says (which grants equal rights in general), Wal-Mart miraculously won the suit. Because of that, I’ve never bothered to sign up for Wal-Mart; that and some of their other policies, like the “death tax,” but the sexist practices are my ultimatum.

            Why is it that men can be sexist, but women ca only be “feminist” and “fighting for equal rights? I know plenty of sexist women. The Y chromosome stopped shrinking a long time ago. And as for most of everything else on this list, it’s more of and argument that the stupid males (which is not all males, by a long shot,) will die out. Which would mean males would be improved overall…. not the best argument for women taking over the country.

              Keep in mind, I did not say women can’t be sexist. Nothing in my posts should’ve indicated that; I am not sexist whatsoever. And, after all, men can be feminists as well.

              This is replied if you’re actually responding to me, though, because you made comments regarding the article as a whole otherwise. I would comment on the rest, but frankly, I don’t care about the chromosome bull, because genetics don’t truly affect behavior like a lot of people think they do anyway (big reason why sexism still exists in the first place).

        2. StudyingPsychologist at |

          To add to Redhead’s comment, there are still jobs that are considered “male” and “female.” Like how nurses are usually female and doctors are usually male. If you were to meet a male nurse or a female doctor, you’d be a bit disoriented or confused. Also, “female-gendered” jobs are paid less than “male-gendered” jobs that are similar or even require less work/education.
          Also, women, even if they work full-time and are the bread-winners, are expected to handle the domestic chores of the home. Men who handle the domestic chores are often ridiculed for doing so and thus most men avoid it.
          As well, in marriage, a woman usually is expected to take her husband’s surname. It is near impossible for a man to take his wife’s surname and sometimes, the government won’t recognize it.

            I don’t know what backwater country you’re living in but nowadays it’s rare that I get seen by a male doctor.

            A more interesting point would be male primary school teachers, very few of those about. Is it sexism when the majority of either sex think males around young children = paedophilia?

            Still, there are more female doctors than male nurses, and as you said, men are ridiculed for doing the domestic chores. Kind of an argument for sexism against males there, huh?

    Speaking only about number 5, statisticaly the most dangerous worksite jobs are mostly populated by men, good or bad thats where the numbers stand. That is the only reason for those numbers to be what they are. I’m not saying women cant do those jobs, merely that they dont want to in large enough numbers to alter that statistic. How many offshore oil workers, deep sea welders, hazardous material handlers, coal miners, forge material handlers, or any of ther other most dangerous job holders are women? Again not saying they cant, just that they dont/arent for whatever reasons. Honestly id like to see a bit more equality there, I’m all for equality between the sexes, and equal share of the dangers of the workplace come with that.

    How about America’s future be equally distributed between males and females? That sounds like a better idea. The only men that are declining are the one’s who think women don’t deserve any rights. Maybe we should all just work together instead? Or… maybe I’m just an “idiotic woman that has no idea what she is talking about”… Please excuse me…
