Is this humourous talk, Bruce examines some truths… Men have been running the show for 6 million years. Women are more emotional than men.
We can all agree that men are physically stronger than women. Has that set the template for inter-gender relationships more than anything else? Men are from Mars women are from Venus. The education system of the Industrial revolution trained intellects and created generations of intellectually overbuilt and emotionally underdeveloped men. However, Genetics tells us we are identical. Very smart people can do very dumb things. When emotions are combined with the intellect in the right way, at the right time, in the right amount we create intelligence and meaning. Is the real question, can men learn something from women?

Every one is intelligent in their own ways. You can not compare all men with all the women because everyone's unique, everyone's different. There are many diversities among the women and the men. There are creative man and woman, rational men and women, also emotional men and women. A men would never actually admit if they are emotional because they are taught from a very early age not to show emotions. But most importantly, if someone is a true intelligent then they would never be so narrow-minded to comment "Men are smarter!!!!" instead, they would be able to see the reality.
ITS ALL BS ESPECIALLYTHE POINT WHEM HE STATES 95% IN PRISON ARE ALL MEN OFCOURSE THEY WILL BE THEY FEND UPON THEMSELVES WOMEN JUST NEED TO SREAD LEGS AND THEY R DONE ITS A SOCIAL IMPRESSION NOT SOME BORN FCKING PHENOMENON
I really get fed up with the number of women who say "we weren't allowed education" or "men oppressed us" ok imagine in the days when the worlds oceans had to be sailed for the first time, or mines had to be dug, or sewers were created, or lives were risked etc imagine if men said, then "ok women go ahead" I doubt it would have worked
to all of those saying 'men invented everything' there are reasons for that :
1. women are pre occupied with children so have less time on their hands
2. for a long time in history women were not given opportunities such as not being allowed to vote ect so they weren't given a chance or say in society
3. its only been some decades since women have more rights so women getting better is going to be a gradual process to undo societies previous restrictions so thats why there hasn't been much change yet
4. there are women who have discovered things too like Rosalind franklin discovery has contributed to the discovery of dna
intelligence doesn't have a gender and the ones who are less intelligent are quick to think they are more intelligent than a lot of people this is simply a fact
non of the men in these comments have discovered or invented anything and yet feel the need to comment on this video how men are better than women because men are the inventors
@Anonymous Neo The Nobel Prize committee explains that today´s awards are given for discoveries from 70´s, 80´s when there were only few female scientists. Today its different and they say there will be more women who win the Nobel prize (look 2018).
@MDickie F5 oh sorry, my mistake I misunderstood a part of your comment. Also, you do realize that not being in Mensa doesn't mean you aren't intelligent , right? Intelligence is based on much more than just your IQ.
When women wanted to join the work force, men had to invent "Human Resources" just to give women the ability to do something because men already had everything under control. Ask your selves one question, since we basically invented something we did not need to help women feel involved in business, do you enjoy how well your "Human Resources" operates? Does your Human Resources magically work when no other mostly women based made up need for operation of a business flow smoothly?
Serious enquiries. I will watch and try to determine whether valid peer reviewed scientific evidences are given and if I miss one please comment for me. (I mean it genuinely, as I might miss some because of subjectivity). Also please inform me also on methodology used to determine intellect of men and women.
So according to you historically if women were allowed to go to the gym, they can be stronger than men That is simply not the case, men are always above women it doesn't matter how much you women try to avoid reality and believe in fairytales like saying "WiMin wErE oPrEsSeD aNd tHeRefOrE wErE nOt As sMaRt As mEn".
@ambellina miles Debate it..than
Why are you even going for some history book... Btw even in history books women were portrayed as wimps. Men are warriors by nature, they fight for their country, protect it to keep their Women and children safe...Men have a huge contribution to this society,
why can't you just accept it and appreciate the sacrifice that men did & still do ? ..THIS EGO will lead you to nowhere.~
if man truly real man will be imprisoned more look at it my invent vehicle man invent eyeglass we invent truck bus by car house play aircraft rocket screen monitor camera even the TV that you're on so why don't give credit where credit is due
Most men are stronger than women and all men and women are smart in their own ways. Many men usually have less common sense and women have more. It's really more complex than you think, but it's mostly men who are more advantageous in many ways physically, mentally, and smart wise.😗😗
@vedrusa are you running out of points ? :) C'mon tell me what qualities women have other than 1. Communication skills 2. Memory and 3.Reading . And don't misunderstand me I'm not trying to discourage women .
Men are smarter and stronger, woman however are more emotional and creative! Plus maybe a tiny bit more of common sense. I would rather that then strength and intelligence. I do not believe we are the same, but neither of us is "better" it can depend on the person. We need each other! if woman were the same emotion and creativity wouldn't exist. And if men didn't exist then we wouldn't be able to protect our self! We are all better at different things! Treat each other with equality and don't be sexist to EITHER gender! We are not the same, we are better at different things!
@Mafalda Araujo women are usually smarter ??? Hahaha joke of the day !!! Most of the girls fail in SAT exam , most of the top chess players are men , and boys are much better at maths !! Keep dreaming kitchen clowns 😂😂
@Mercuria 2 The point of my comment is to show how untenable and how death ensuing that choice is.
You cannot legislate equality for men and women. You would have to give unfair advantages to women while also placing more responsibility on men for that to possibly happen which will result in death.
Actaully, statistics and studies show that women are emotionally smarter (they have a higher EQ) in average. Just like men are stronger in average. Generally intelligence (IQ) is pretty much equal in both gender.
@Mercuria 2 Yes, women are fine in traditional patriarchal societies where the negative aspects of their nature is checked. Western women would be fine again if traditional western patriarchy was restored. That however provides no invalidation about my claims regarding human nature.
Raa16 never heard of those instincts being ‘biological’. They are more to do with the woman’s background, parental figures and culture etc. The idea of women needing to be protected is not engrained wholly in DNA.
@Michel Hebou Women have biological instincts to be protected and provided for. That is what the left offers in the form of the welfare state and the police state. They also have misplaced motherly instincts that drive them to help immigrants. If needed I can provide evidence for this.
You know, Muslims didn't flood into Sweden because the men suddenly started feeling large compassion for people 100-500 miles away.
My own reasons why men are more physically and intellectually superior than women.
1. Mens' discoveries and inventions dwarved those of womens'
(Men have more convenient inventions than women but women have also too.)
2. Men are better than most sports and mind sports, examples are: Chess, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Football, etc.
3. Men are more recognizable for being the best at some genre like at math or science. Examples: Albert Einstein, Aristotle, Galileo Galilei, etc.
These are my reasons why men are better intellectually and physically.
Feel free to reply
Lol you clearly lack knowledge about sports if you think that the intellect is irrelevant, haven't you seen any soccer game? Where many teams have different playing style philosophies and the managers tells the players how to position theirselves in order to cover the areas where the rivals can exploit them LOL do not talk if you know nothing about something.
Volleyball is female dominated sport lol it doesn't matter as much as football (Both American and soccer), My teammates and I were putted together to pkay againsts girls and we've beaten them 9-0 HAHAHAH
@Anonymous Neo He was better at math and physics than other subjects, but he still had to learn all of it from a textbook first. Without learning how to read he would never know what Pythagorean theorem was and his creativity would be slowed down.
The Best Of Cartoons Don’t bother. Women are a lost cause. They key to saving society is red pilling men.
A janitor helps and compliments a CEO however the janitor is not equal to the CEO nor does the janitor deserve the same privileges the CEO has earned. Women understand this when it comes to business, but when its the sexes, they really trip up.
@The Best Of Cartoons Men build buildings, but women are much better at communication and advancing human interractions and cooperation. Do you think men created everything in the old times? When archeologists discover some ancient pots or primitive ceramics, do u think it was men who created it? Since women were in charge of cooking and fire in general? Not to mention healing powers of herbs, looms, grain-grinders, knives, food preserving technology, tannig methods, btw women hunted too, not only men, but it was predominantly a male thing.
Women contributed tremendously to the technology through the early Neolithic.
@Gabriel Tejada I do think some woman in the past liked the stay at home lifestyle, but what I'm trying to say is, don't compare men and women. It's possible the interests of many men (not all) are different to the interests of many woman (Not all), but I don't think it's possible to judge which gender is superior since one can't rely without the other. I also don't understand when you say "they often cannot handle the responsibility that comes with the authority they're given," can you please provide an example?
Bob Ross if you’re referring to women in general then it may surprise you that lots of women in the past before feminism didn’t find it boring in fact they were MUCH happier compared to the women of today’s world since modern women have proven that they often cannot handle the responsibility that comes with the authority they’re given (I say given because most women don’t earn these positions since feminism just hands it over to them like nothing).
Because school is nothing but memorising elements and putting them into the paper, the reality is that in the real world when it's time to show up your skills women fail and they say that this society is way too biased to men because they cannot keep up to the excellenece of men
Girls develop language skills earlier than boys, as well as interpersonal skills. This gives them great advantage in reading and articulation as well as group discussions, essentially learning parrot fashion and using memory, thus getting good grades. Boys at school tend to work more independantly (if not, they're more disruptive) This has nothing to do with intelligence, or actually understanding a subject. I noticed when I was at college on an access to science course too that boys grades were typically higher than girls, despite there being less boys, and that girls seemed largely clueless when asked to give explainations. I think by this age boys language and cognitive skills are fully developed, and they are able to articulate what they are thinking more. This is obvious when you ask the question: are we the same? No we are definately not. Boys and girls certainly learn differently, always have always will its not a bad thing and it needs to be acknowedged by the education system
@vedrusa Well look at Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome they were not only Patriarchal but very hard Patriarchy, read about the indo-europeans the ancestors of modern Europeans were a warlike Patriarchal race.
vedrusa hun you really don’t know what trolling is do you? I’ve seen bad trolls that would probably walk circles around you despite not being good at trolling. Just do yourself a favor and call it quits 😉
@Duvdev men are more competitive in athletics. I just read that testosterone raises competitiveness in men and estrogen raises competitiveness in women. Both sexes are competitive but in sport, men compete more because sport is associated with mating.
@vedrusa You said it right there! "Men are more competitive" damn right we are.
Every field is competitive from sicence , engineering to sports and even art. Men are more competitive and is one of the reasons that men are smarter.
@vedrusa Mens history is more lengthy, diverse and complex than womens, which is why its so hard for people to describe and put men into a nutshell so to speak. So we simply nowadays choose to focus on mens bad points and ignore the rest. Example being men had to do reckless things to discover new things. Womens history is fairly recent so thats why its easier to forgive women of any bad things they may do, and see them striving to acheive as a good thing. Intelligence is nothing different in the genders, but curiousity and bravery is, which men seemed to have more of in the past
Want to know who is smarter, just look at STEM fields. Women have had their educational freedom for over 30 years, yet they STILL account for less than 20% of STEM jobs, and what's more is that they aren't even enrolling in the courses for these fields as they only account for 35% of STEM undergrads even though they get more degrees than men.
@Jerome Truitt its natures fault, we are motivated by our urges, biology wants women to be teachers, nurses or models. It has nothing to do with intelligence. Same thing as with heroes. Men act like heroes usually only around women and it works cuz it increases their attractiveness. Female heroes dont increase their attractiveness.
Honestly seems like the comments section is filled with overly emotional men who are upset that anyone would think women and men are equally intelligent. This is exactly what the speaker was pointing out.
No they're not, evolution made men and women different in many aspects just like women being objectively superior to men in recapting or memorising things, multitasking, being flexible, having a much better social interaction skills and men being smarter, stronger, faster, bigger, being more athletic, healthier and better at handling stress than women.
So let me tell u smth the physical strength of men is the factor that shutted down women's intelligence if men nd women were physically equivalent than We'd do the same things
We were created to work together nd in harmony not to fight who's smarter nd who's better if u shut ur emotions u'll be an intellectual half inelegant nd if u shut ur intellect u'll become more emotional half inelegant so thru all these years we've been growing half inetelegant apart science proved that women r stronger medically than men We r equal
Lmao.. As per my experience with both man and woman in collage.. I've realised that (I'm being fair). Women are naive in comparison to men in general. A man can cause damage to a women not just physically, but psychological too.. I think in many instances man are wayy superior or women... ALSO the reasoning capabilities of a man can outmatch women...
@vedrusa say thanks to women's quota in colleges . Those rich women can pay thousands of dollars to get a degree from MIT or any STEM field . Also it is said that a women get work in NASA only bcoz their parents were ex employees . This is how they are gonna compete with men lol . Modern women are so weak and insecure !!!
Why can’t the world go back to the way it was where men and women actually worked together? Men and women are good at different things so they are smart in different ways. They are both like pieces of a puzzle.
@Joanna Dim. I am not looking down towards nor demean women in anyway, I love women, love my mom, my girlfriend and my sisters and most women, I just have exceptions in those who feel like women have contributed equally in S.T.E.M and inventions as a whole.
To say that the education system is designed for boys is one of the worst jokes I have heard recently. Girls are more successful at school. Schools do not allow for physical release (more critical in boys), are not built for nonverbal communication, do not learn through doing, increase the weight of homework more and more (boys are more successful on tests, and girls in homework - on average). Etc. etc.
@TrPpc 379 WHITE PEOPLE/EUROPEANS DID NOT START ALL THE WARS, MEN BUILT AND ACHIEVED GREATNESS AND EVERYONE ELSE TRIES TO COME INTO THEIR CIVILIZATIONS AND TAKE IT! FACT, READ UP ON HISTORY, SPECIFICALLY EUROPEAN HISTORY WHERE EVERYONE CONSTANTLY TRIED TO COME INTO ANCIENT ROME AND ANCIENT GREECE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEIR TECHNOLOGICAL SUPERIORITY, THE GREEKS AND ROMANS GOT ATTACKED ALL THE TIME!
Who also started all the wars,where thry killed hundreds of thousands of people land,conflicts in the actual world and created all social norms who don't allow anyone besides white straight men to be themselves?
Anar Haji look, all I read was that it was created by women. Another source told me computers were made by women when in truth both genders worked equally hard to contribute to the making of it. Perhaps that’s what happened there.
Mary Cury is the proof women can be extremely intelligent and reach same goals reached by men. Just, luckily for our society we have different ways of thinking and of our brain working. I suggest you to read "A Room of One's Own" written by Virginia Woolf. It is enlightening and more complete than this short ted talk.
@Gabriel Tejada wrong, women and only women were designed to protect the offspring, men were designed to fight each other for women. Everything else is social construct. Men hunted, women did everything else, including creating innovative technologies (men did that too of course). Men + women = successs.
vedrusa Men were designed by nature to do everything and help insure the survival of the species which requires intelligence to do so while women only have to sit back and look pretty while picking out the best man cause hypergamy floats which has been part of the reproductive dynamic since time and memorial, no matter what feminists say it ain’t ever gonna change or go away.
