Considering her ways Monday September 12, 2005, 7 comments

Men appear emotionally inferior to women. Men appear increasingly socially inept. Boys are falling behind girls in education, both at the early schooling level and university level. Scans of the brain reveal that women can think of many things simultaneously, while men can only think of one thing at a time.

Men are increasingly irrelevant in society as women dominate the workforce. Men face emotional challenges they are not equipped to handle when challenged by strong, ambitious women. And its not just societal, there seems to be scientific proof.

The X chromosome is larger than the Y chromosome by a factor of six – not only larger, but far more dense in terms of information capacity. Many of these “extra” genes are associated with brain function. While I am the first to admit genetics is in its infancy, there is at this time significant evidence that women are, in fact, genetically superior to men. And that the gap is widening.

While women have made very strong strides toward equality in western society, the fact has always been that women have always had an ace up their sleeve when it came to equality – reproduction. Since western society has rendered the role of protector/provider obsolete, men have become irrelevant except for the few moments it takes to supply source material.

Now women have all the aces. Reminiscent of science fiction stories (such as Consider Her Ways, a short story by John Wyndham) in which society exists without men, scientists in Britain are busily creating a fetus that has two genetic mothers and no genetic father at all. Is it the last offense in the battle of the sexes?

The male is in decline. No wonder I feel out of place.

As long as there are spiders to be killed and jars to be opened and lawns to be mowed the male will be safe in our society.

As long as cars need to be serviced and things need to be done around the house, the male will be safe in our society.

Besides, whithout us men, who will be wrong?

The proof is that you took this long to figure it out.

And then we’re back to the cloning discussion. But I won’t go into that.

And stop worrying, men won’t become irrelevant. We will always need someone to point at and laugh ;)

At the age of eleven or thereabouts women acquire a poise and an ability to handle difficult situations which a man, if he is lucky, manages to achieve somewhere in the later seventies.

Another way to see it is – all the chromosomes are present in duplicate in men and women, except that men have a whole chromosome that women do not have, rather than just having duplication of the X chromosome. The Y chromosome contains, among other things, a lot of controlling genes that turn various genes in the other, shared chromosomes on or off.

The significance of that? God alone knows…

But my car needs washing…

Anyone else find it ironic that I have all these female scientists commenting on this?

Haha I think its quite funny
