    Ihave a feeling that girls are going to take over the World.

    I think this would be a good thing.

    Just think, us men could get enticed to notice girls with a bribe of wine trifles and cream puffs.

    We would only be needed on Saturday nights every pancake Tuesday.

    The rest of the time we could be off fishing. Or watching Cricket. Very little chance of being distracted there. westwind.

    That is the way it may start if it were to happen, but in the end you would want more and create a revolution :P Besides, it's unlikely to happen as men and women are not the same, and the fact that men are more aggressive would mean that women on the whole would remain on the short end of the stick for another long while. Maybe in 200 years things will be different.


    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    Maybe we should blow some baloney like the men would be those who lead the world. Even if trying hard to attach any measurable signification to what ruling the world means. The typical example is that politic leaders are all men. Well, sure is. Guess what ... they do not decide where I am going to spend my holiday, you can guess who is

    There are whips and there are clubs, and it is obvious who is using which. Sub specialization in species is not rare (2 gender even 3), and over rated. Yes men are more violent and women more cruel. Men can produce more work, and women can organize it better.

    No gender rules over the other, not even species rule over others. Even if a virus can 'decide' the way I die, it does not 'take over' me.

    In short, it is a mistake to consider men an women as different species. Only the join of them can be called human being. One cannot live without the other, there are dozens of hormones and various body appendage to reminds you of that facts

    Women took over a long time ago. We just let you guys think you are in charge so that you get blamed when it all goes to hell rather than us lol. Why do you think the most powerful men always have strong women behind them, pulling their strings.

    Men are no more aggressive than women. They just tend to be physically stronger. Women express aggression in other ways. We are more subtle and manipulative. We are the ones best at brainwashing people into feeling sorry for us and giving us what we want. We appeal to the ego of men and make them believe that they will be perceived as powerful and merciful at the same time if they give us what we want. While internally we laugh and call them "suckers". Women are, by nature, succubi and we are damned good at it. Most of us have the good sense to be ashamed of it and will deny it to the death, but we all do it. Even the best intentioned of us. We simply cannot escape our nature. Though many of us do try to use our powers for good rather than evil.

    Yes, I see where youare coming from seagypsy. Wished you had posted this 68 years ago. Wished I then could have understood the truth of a woman's nature at that time. It's true, we act to our nature, it works, it gets the job done, survival of the cleverest. Some of these skills were hard come by, I understand that.

    So now that you have come clean lady seagypsy, what about taking over the reins for awhile? Us men need a break. We just want to go down to the Pub and have a few beers for a year or two, then a lovely hot Roast on the Table when we decide to come home?

    What say you seagypsy? westwind.

    Women are better at the game of nuclear war than men are. They hold grudges longer and retaliate against one another for perceived wrongs with a fierceness most men can't even begin to comprehend.

    On the other hand, two men may get into a fist fight, punch each other silly, and then an hour later they're having a beer together. I think war was a better institution when men were in charge of it. Too bad we can't go back.

    Nuclear war? I remember something from back in the days when we were seriously afraid of the real thing. I suspect it's an urban legend, but the story went that a few 'surprise' drills revealed that quite a few people were likely to resist going ahead with their designated push-button, hit Go, or whatever task required for a nuclear strike. So they did some psychological testing to identify who was and who wasn't likely to obey orders to initiate a nuclear attack.

    And who was most likely of all? Grandmothers.

    As I said, I think it's an urban legend. But it's revealing about what people think a grandmother's protective instincts might lead to.

    I don't know about your nuclear war analogy, kinda leaves me a bit lost but as far as how we fight is concerned you are right. We are far more passionate and tend to hold grudges. Not all of us of course, but on average I'd be willing to guess that women do hold grudges and fight more fiercely than men do. I doubt there are any easily obtainable statistics or studies to confirm these speculations though. I base my assumptions on my own observations alone. Anyone else is welcome to their own interpretations of their observations.

    But what you described is why I prefer to watch women's boxing over men's. Between two men, it is just a sport. Nothing personal. So the hits are all precision and planning. But you get two women in the ring, and it starts out as a sportsman like contest until the one bests the other and it becomes personal. You can see them cursing each other's future grandchildren through the expression in their eyes and you know that if no one is knocked out they are both looking over their shoulder as they leave lol.

    On nuclear war.

    Ever hear of Vasili Arkhipov?

    There is the greatest hero of the 20th Century. The man who saved the world from nuclear war. And no one has even heard of him, except for a few.

    Thanks for that skeptic. I'd heard the story, just not the name.

    We should all be grateful.

    The sad thing is that this guy, the greatest hero of the last 100 years, returned to the Soviet Union in disgrace, and was treated as a pariah. He died impoverished, leaving a wife to struggle to survive, and died of radiation poisoning, which is a shocking way to go. He never received any credit during his lifetime.

    Good for you.

    I prefer to watch because I can't afford self defense classes and I have learned a lot on how to protect myself from watching boxing as well as cage fighting matches. I even learned moves that I ultimately used against a man much bigger than me, my first husband.

    Not to mention the fact that in situations of violence our true faces emerge and it is interesting to see who people reveal themselves to be underneath all the facade of daily living. Very much like the experiments the Joker conducts in The Dark Knight.

    Men (and dogs) fight over the possession of territory.

    Women, as mates and help-mates, are an object of desire for many, but not all men. Men assume that they are the ones doing the 'selecting' but ultimately, unless the man uses force, it is the woman who has the choice to acquiesce or not and I use the word acquiesce with full understanding that it means to accept, comply, or submit tacitly or passively, for one has no control over which gender they were born unto.

    Perhaps it is an evolutionary behavior that women are so fierce because, on the whole, their investment in bringing forth and nurturing life places more demand on their physical being. Males have the capacity to reproduce exponentially, given the right opportunity, (Niall, Thomas Jefferson and Genghis Khan) while a woman is limited to how many children she can personally bear. Even with modern fertility technology, the sperm of the male is easier to attain, harvest and proliferate than are the eggs of the female.

    Males may be combative over possession...of many incidental things of perceived value to various cultures, yet biologically speaking, women 'own' the territory regardless of how her culture may be seen to accommodate her, for in the end, all men are of women born.

    (In selecting and breeding horses, the mare will have more influence than the stallion. Both have equal potential for genetic input as per Mendal's laws of heredity but the female has the additional input of nurturing and early conditioning.)


    Figure 2 Dihybrid cross. The phenotypes of two independent traits show a 9:3:3:1 ratio in the F2 generation. In this example, coat color is indicated by B (brown, dominant) or b (white), while tail length is indicated by S (short, dominant) or s (long). When parents are homozygous for each trait (SSbb and ssBB), their children in the F1 generation are heterozygous at both loci and only show the dominant phenotypes. If the children mate with each other, in the F2 generation all combinations of coat color and tail length occur: 9 are brown/short (purple boxes), 3 are white/short (pink boxes), 3 are brown/long (blue boxes) and 1 is white/long (green box).
    As far as women taking over control of the world, we must first create a society which permits her control over her own body, and then we may see where that path leads.

    You think? I think it tends to bring out the worst in people on both sides of the 'transaction'.

    Isn't it our worst side that we tend to try and hide. We always show our best side. But the reality of who we really are is somewhere in the middle. And while I agree that it TENDS to bring out the worst, I have been witness to violence bringing out the best in people. During a riot we see people running to the aid of those who are wounded, putting their own lives at risk. Remember Reginald Denny? He was nearly killed until some unlikely bystanders protected him by pretending to steal his truck so they could get him to medical help. Violence can bring out our real nature. And I believe that many people have a very dark side to them. While some continue to shine as beacons of hope for the future of humanity. But this is a discussion for another thread. Let's try to stay on topic.
