Top 10 Reasons the American Future is Female

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Ever since the first American woman said “I deserve a right to vote,” we knew there was trouble coming. And guess what? From the available trends and data, it looks like we are looking at a future where American women as a whole have it better than American men. Even though it’s kind of un-American to think of people as collectives instead of as individuals, here are ten significant factors.

10. Male Health Is Awful

Health

If you’ve ever touched any surface or looked into any corner not immediately visible in a bachelor pad, it might not surprise you to find out that a male bachelor pad is 15 times germier than a bachelorette pad. This is just one of the many contributing factors to the fact men are in general sicker than women. This is actually going to prove more serious than us guys would like to admit: a higher amount of colds, bouts of the flu, and general sickness are big contributors to Alzheimer’s disease. So by the time there’s all that social security and retirement money available, seems like she’ll be the only one sane enough to use it. Don’t get me started on health insurance.

9. The Male Unemployment Rate is Higher

unemployed

While most of us non-evil types were hurt pretty badly by the recession, women might really, really be beneficiaries of it in the long run. Of late, the male unemployment rate is 10.4% in America while the female is approximately 8%. Among the various reasons is the fact that men were, on average, paid significantly more than their female counterparts. The bigger they are…

8. Male Education is Dropping

stupid

Toptenz is very lucky to have plenty of nice ladies handy to read our articles to us, because, you see, education trends are skewing heavily, heavily in female favor. It’s not just college graduation rates but 7% less male students graduate high school than female students. So yeah, looks like the need for ladies that read for us is just going to expand.

7. Boys Are Inferior Babies

baby boys

For some reason, some weirdoes seem to treat dead babies like a big or serious deals, so it’ll just be the facts for this one. Male infant mortality rates are as much as 30% higher in developed counties and even in some developing countries where the female is usually considered less valuable (e.g., India.) This hints at a larger trend that will be expanded upon later.

6. There are an Expanding Number of Female Millionaires

jk rowling

Yes, men still lead the pack by a wide margin as far as billionaires go, but trends indicate that with their higher amount of education, increased business opportunities, and better health, women are going to be overtaking men in many areas of financial security within your lifetime (if you’re female. If you’re a guy, you’ll probably have done something to take yourself out first.) And an article by the UK’s Telegraph reported the estimation that women will control 60% of Great Britain’s wealth by 2025, and the trends there are not really that different from America’s.

5. Men are WAY More Likely to Die on the Job Site

danger

So, with a comparatively declining amount of education and a lessening amount of money, what else is going wrong for men in the workplace in relation to women? It might not be the most surprising thing in the world, but consider that in 2005, for example, around 5,328 men in America were killed on the job site as opposed to 406 women.

4. More Adopted Females Than Males

adoption

So, suppose the male baby survives infancy but is left an orphan for reasons beyond his control (unless he’s the Antichrist.) Turns out girls will still have the advantage on him. Females make up 64% of all adopted children in the U.S. of international babies and are adopted more than 12% more internal adoptions. Given that the adoption process is so difficult and time consuming that it’s very, very likely only a very stable and relatively well-to-do, this means girls are also being introduced into the families with money and status.

3. Cow Hormones In the Water

cow

Let’s take a break from all of these serious, rational reasons and just go silly for this one:

The influence of the female is indeed subtle and treacherous. They are not content to merely take control of our economy, but they want us to be more like them! One of the most insidious ways is a very subtle, very clever little number: the amount of female hormones in our water supply is increasing hugely, increasing the number of men who need breast reduction and suffering from other inadequacies of masculinity. This is accomplished by inducing cows that have had massive injections of hormones to urinate. Animal urine not being as properly processed as human urine, this has tainted out ground water supply to say nothing of dairy and meat products. Unfortunately, us men are going to be too dumb and poor to do anything about it.

2. Sexism Was Just Making Them Stronger

mad men

Coming from a past of Mad Men-like gender inequality, psychologists, business teachers and consultants are positing that a woman in the work place tends to make for a better leader due to the increasing adversity strengthening drive and character. Which is great, because it gives us the excuse of “it was for your own good!”

1. The Y-Chromosome Is Deteriorating

y chromosome

Now THIS is a bit more distant as far as the future goes, but still, the precursor effects seem to be visible now. The Y-chromosome is susceptible to mutation, degradation, and has been losing genes since its emergence, much faster than the X.  How fast is that? Well, the theory is that in all species across the entire world, the Y-chromosome will be gone within five million years. So those of you hoping for a great x5,000 grandson should probably give up on that. We know: it can be hard to let go. And yes, we are imagining the United States of America will still be around in five million years.

  1. Great list! Its awesome to see this type of writing. Non condescending, funny, with sources to back it up! This is a great example of this type of factual article. Keep em’ coming!

  2. 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.

        • “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.

  3. 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.

      • 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…

        • Homosexuality is found in over 450 animal species, however homophobia is only found in 1, care to rethink your theory about unnatural behaviour`?

        • What did his post, pertaining entirely to the impossibility of two of the same gender sexually reproducing without any outside assistance, have anything to do with homophobia?

    • 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.

  4. There is one thing the writer didn’t mention. I read somewhere that some scientists believe that the X chromosome almost wiped out Y thousands of years ago. But it succeeded in repairing itself. If I find the source I will post it

  5. the y chromosome willl be gone because it will mutate into something even greater than it was and the x chromosome will still be the same weak inferior of the 2

    • 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.

      • LOL. There is that minor education factor that they were speaking of “god”. Your archaic sexism and lack of education will play a roll in your “survival of the fittest.” No chic in there right mind would date a guy like you…

  6. of course women will become strong they already have all the rights…It’s time for men to become whiners so we can get back to where we were.

    • StudyingPsychologist on

      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…

      In case you couldn’t tell, I’m being sarcastic.

      I’ll really hope you’re joking and if you’re not, please get an education. If that’s too much for you, don’t try the dating scene, you won’t get far.

    • 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.

      • Pardon my ignorance, i dont fully understand what you are saying here.
        You wrote

        “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.”

        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).

        • StudyingPsychologist on

          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?

        • Why don’t we swap jobs with the woman they can work in the construction industry and we can sit in those nice comfy chairs on Facebook. Also to support your last comment what would happen if this was a 6 year old girl and a bunch of semi naked men
          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDClZJLkCHg
          (you may want to mute it)

        • Wow, that is unbelievable and not in a good way. I weep for our world when I see something like this. At least it has 17,000 dislikes vs 2,600 likes. Still, what kind of deviants think this is worth liking. I hope they are saving any money that kid is making for his future therapy bills. He is going to need it.

        • 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?

      • Yes, thank you for the explanation and for your work. I hope you do not observe “gender” or “orientation”, but rather sex and preference, respectively.
        We are making serious headway. I can tell by the males’ frantic and typically violent interjections! 😀

  7. This isn’t a very well thought through article is it? Or was it just written by a feminist? On #2 men not getting jobs? you know why? because they want some women to look at, cold hard truth #1 not every mans place is dirty so they say here #5 we die on job sites way more often cause we have to deal with way more dangerous stuff then most women do the sexism one? all i can say is learn how to take a joke but apparently not cause they made this page about male inferiority, i could go on more but ill just stop right there i have no more to say to this page

  8. Strong feminism in this article. Most of your points are made from assumptions or psuedo. Please quote STUDIES not news stories.

    • Strong feminism. Vewwwwy gooooooood.
      YOU must look up the studies. She gave you plenty to go on. Try not to expect others to do all your work.

  9. nobody special on

    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.

  10. 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…

    • No, as a man, I totally agree. All this arguing gets us nowhere. I mean, there is no “wining” here. “Hooray, we wiped out all of the males/females on earth, and proved our superiority! Now the human race gets to die!”

  11. Christian Madsen on

    I hope you had a good time writing this because to me it was nothing more than the typical american undocumented and non-proven brainfarts. Good day 🙂

  12. Lol wtf this is laughable..and men get killed more on the job cus we do alot more dangerous jobs..always have always will..and the millionaire is funny..all the rickest people in the world are men..dont see that changing
