So if the hill is too high. . . few will try to climb it. . . then why are the women charging the hill and the men watching???peace
 Quoting: George B


Because all are considered equal - there is no difference - mediocrity is considered the goal. Exceptionalism, of men or women is not expected nor desired.
 Quoting: No Dhimmi


That still does not explain women's greater desire to succeed while men are satisfied to observe. . . .
 Quoting: George B


Can you imagine going to a waterpark where you never have to climb stairs?

At the end of every slide, another slide awaiting you?

That's this world and women.



Now imagine one where you have to climb twice for yourself, and once for the woman beside you.


That's this world and men.


Of course, I could also just say that in the real scheme of things, women are short-sighted, and fully capable of running a civilization into the ground over the course of only a few generations.

But that might ruin the fun.

On what evidence do you base your conclusion women are more incompetent than men?

The environment of political correctness - removed true leaders from government and industry - the lack of true leaders affects all of society. There are no strong masculine role models for young men. If all are perceived as equal - there is no differentiation to excel and model excellence. Combine this with no rule of law remaining (but exemptions for the elite) there is no incentive to take risk, reducing the incentive to innovate and take chances. A few break through this barrier – but fewer see the way or the possibilities of award.

Many white men have observed others (women and minorities) obtaining promotions based on thier status rather than thier skills and/or merit - they lose their incentive to care or try.
Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Ecclesiastes 10:2 “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”

We are all born ignorant, but it takes a lot of work to keep looking the other way to remain stupid.

Islam is not a race - the racism rant is lame, used by the intellectually lazy to derail the debate.

Even if the promoter knows they are favoring the woman or whatever, they rationalize it off saying someone else will hire this guy.

Which is exactly the same rationalization used by every other promoter who does the same.

If there was a law stating that you have to carry home any spare change someone donates to you, and everyone in your city donated a cent, you would be crushed under the weight.

How about a severely flawed education system
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1043775


A society which says everyone should go to college, even though everyone clearly shouldn't go to college, and then these people who would in other generations be unskilled laborers or factory workers now have college degrees and have been duped into believing they're too good for hard work, but they aren't smart enough for the few white collar jobs available, so they move back home and play video games while waiting for a six figure job offer which will never materialize. When they turn 40 and realize half their life has passed them by, they won't be qualified even for unskilled labor and they will either mooch off mom and dad until they are dead or they will die in the streets.

I will, however, say this. I am glad I came up in the 80's when there was still abundant hope for the future. I was motivated to do well in school, I went to college and law school and am now a successful attorney with a great law practice. At this stage, however, I see no future for the economy or people of the United States. My law practice is exclusively bankruptcy, and so that is why I am so successful right now, and will be for as long as it takes this economy to unwind and crash. If I were a college student today, I might be tempted to move home and play video games too. There just seems to be no hope for anyone starting out today. Once the economy is done crashing and unraveling and I have no more work, I will likely take my family and what fortune I have managed to accumulate and move to South America or someplace where I can live off what I have saved, and where my kids might have a future.

OP, stop running the rhino and let us know your thoughts on the results:

4) The economy stupid 16.0% (167)
3) Video games have created a generation of zoned out addicted young men 13.4% (140)
5) Lack of reasonable moral or religious upbringing 12.8% (134)
8) Everyone has given up. . . The young men just gave up first 11.8% (123)

It looks stupid what sheeple consider to be the main cause. I would say the root cause is the lack of reasonable moral or religious upbringing, the rest are just effects of that.

I cannot decide if the society (meaning the affluent G20) are just spoiled by relative abundance and any retraction from that abundance and opportunity (by natural economic cycles) is causing undue stress or if we are being intentionally manipulated for some diabolical covert purpose . . . both are possible or a combo of the two . . . young men being the most vulnerable group to be affected . . .

Both, at a minimum.

So, being military, my husband being an ex-ranger, I thank you for your service...How do feel about some calling for women to sign with selective services?

If you mean combat services . . . I think it is a slippery road . . . most women I served with didn't want anything to do with direct combat but would not run from it either . . . I personally see no need to subject women to the horror and degradation of combat . . . women are much more important to the survival of mankind than that . . . but necessity can sometime trump desire . . .

I guess that would be whomever is assisting in making a large segment of society disenfranchised.

I think we are all going to be surprised at just how acutely aware young men are of the expected response and manipulation over the years. All it will take is one reason to remove the willful blindness.

Often these triggers occur unexpectedly, or without fanfare.
