Sorry to burst your bubble but most men DO drive better than woman. If by being a better driver means you have to go 60km/hr on a perfectly deserted route , then the woman takes the cake. But in terms of control and speed , men still wins.<br />
I think it's pretty certain that men are more capable than woman but then again without us woman , there won't be any men so each gender has it's up and downs. Most of the world leaders are men (Obama , etc etc) and behind every successful men is a woman backing him up.
Performing well for a test does not mean they would have the same competency when the situation arises. Men are able to adapt well in times of crisis whereas women would be swayed by their own emotions instead. This is also one of the reasons why people say that women are more emotional than men because they often get swayed by their emotions , making absurd decisions.
Mary me, i cant do diy to save my life
Kaiyi , while I do agree with some of the points that you had made , I beg to differ about your point of girls not able to adapt as well as guys do. You should not stereotype since not all women are like that , some are just as capable of handling the situation as well as guys do.
I agree with your point that both genders have it's ups and downs since both genders have their strengths and weaknesses and those are what that made us equal. But chocolate , don't you think that you're stereotyping a little here as well ? The article only surveyed 7280 people , not the entire population of males and women so you can't entirely based your post on that ALL men respond with aggression and that ALL women would respond with fear.
Men are generally leaders but they do have their own flaws and it's our roles as women to fill the gap in their leading role , that's why most of us girls keep a low profile behind our men while they take all the credit which ultimately led to us being underestimated as not being as capable as men in terms of being a leader.
I think ultimately , it just boils down to the individual. There's no use to base your argument on such a small-scaled survey. God made two genders for a reason , both of them are equal. There's no point in arguing which one is better than the other and whats not.
Because thinking in a binary way is easy.
To answer you first question society has taught men to be tought and not show emotions so men appear less emotional but simple bottle things up. In my opinion that is wrong and for the same reason men appear more logical because they appear less emotional. I use the term appear becasue as you right ly say when put to the test some woman are more intellegent and adept than some men and for others the reverse is true. The truth is we call all excell if we put our mind to it weather we be male or female. It is not a question of can i it is a question of can i be bothered and one can argue that in todays sexist society that women have something to prove and therfore try harder. Does this make them more intellegent, no it just means that they have more to prove to overcome the opressive constraints that our media fueld society places on us all
Yes and it doesnt make it right
Then why don't you just grow one then and find out how hard it is to be a man in this world.<br />
Stop being a Hypocrite.
You have No Idea.
You really need to stop thinking in two dimensions. (Us against Them)
Society thinks of men as more logical because it casts men in the role of soldiers, workers and administrators. These roles make it necisscary to use logic constantly so most men become schooled in it's use and develope logical thinking habbits at least where work is concerned. <br />
Women are used for producing children. And society has pushed them to be attractive to men. They are taught to obssess over fashion, hair styles and makeup. Women are taught to wear their sexuality on their sleeve, to; constantly put on a show for the men. <br />
My sister is a long time women's rights advocate and has had a lot of trouble <br />
Finding women ready to break out of the distructive cycle and utilise independant action.<br />
Statistics indicate that women are better drivers , insurance companys know this as well. In fact women are capable of anything humanly possable. The trick is to undo the damage done by society. To keep them from sliding back into the ditch. The best way is to get them young, get rid of the stupid pink frilly toys and childrens shows, stop forcing these dehumanising gender roles on people.<br />
As more women shake off the pathetic girly girl mentality and begin to do for them selves their reputation will change accordingly.<br />
Why any man alive would ever want to involve himself with a babyish frilly self made invalid instead of a woman who acts and thinks like a grown adult I do not know.
@koolranch: Men drivers have significantly fewer crashes per mile driven than women drivers. Men do a lot more driving to even though men are better drivers, in total they have more crashes. Not a lot more though. Insurance rates tend to discriminate against men.
Dan is a fairly hard core conservative koolranch's post smacks of desperation. Death statistics plainly show the male proclivity for foolish and dangerous behaviour, one coroner wrote that men showed up on the slab who died deaths befitting cartoon characters. This to is society's fault for pushing men to prove over and over how tough and brave they are, the ultimate goal of course, being to use them as soldiers.
Yes, feminists are much better at creative lying and in believing their lies no matter how silly the lies are. That only serves to demonstrate the fact that women are not very good at logical thinking.
OK. Now I can sleep better tonight.
Ill let you have all but the driving opinion haha
It's just that most women tend to think while taking emotions into account, and most men don't have to think like that, making them more "logical". It's also a matter of point of view and where you get your facts from
Yeah, but it also depends on the individual. I tend to respond with both fear and aggression if faced with the right circumstance.
Lol yes, very true.
