Are women good, and men bad? How many times have you heard that women are wiser, kinder, more efficient, and just all around superior human beings? A never ending succession of books and news stories suggests they are. AEI scholar Christina Hoff Sommers looks at the evidence.

Philosophers like Immanuel Kant and Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Friedrich Nietzsche deemed women intellectually inferior to men. Fortunately, those male chauvinistic days are mostly gone. But today a new kind of reverse, female chauvinism prevails. It is so common, social scientists have given it a name: the WOMEN are WONDERFUL phenomenon—WAW for short. Here is a sample of recent WAW headlines. Let’s consider some common claims of female superiority: Multi-tasking: It is a truth universally recognized that women are better at multi-tasking; Here is the British writer Sir Ken Robinson in one of the most watched TED talks of all time: “I think this is probably why women are better at multitasking. Because you are, aren’t you? There’s a raft of research, but I know it from my personal life.” Sir Robinson refers to a “raft of research” Well, where is it? What we have is a handful of small, inconclusive, inconsistent studies. Some show women are better—while others find that it’s men who excel. Thomas Buser a researcher at University of Amsterdam, took a careful look at the data and concluded that, “As far as gender differences are concerned, we do not find any evidence for them in the effects of multitasking.” It turns out that neither sex is particularly good at focusing on more than one thing at once. Niceness: What about the claim that women are just a lot nicer than men? According to film critic Roger Ebert: “Women are nicer than men… in terms of their lifelong natures, women are kinder, more empathetic, more generous. And the sooner more of them take positions of power, the better our chances as a species.” Is he right? Well, when it comes to generosity, kindness, and altruism, once again you find lots of dueling studies. But one of the most thorough and careful surveys was carried out by Tom Smith and his team at the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. Unlike many other studies of altruism, this one was not limited to a small, unrepresentative sample of college students. Also, Smith and his team asked questions that included both male and female styles of altruism. Women tend to adopt nurturing and caring roles toward people they know—while men excel at good deeds and acts of kindness involving strangers. In Smith’s survey, women proved to be more empathetic than men: they were more likely to feel pity for others and to describe themselves as soft­hearted. But when it came to the empirically critical measure of generosity—how much do you actually do for others—the results were different. When Smith and his colleagues tallied up the results, they found that the score was even. “Gender,” Smith concluded, “is not notably related to altruistic behaviors.” Advantage: Neither sex. Both sexes have their graces and their own styles of being virtuous. Neither has a monopoly on good or evil. How did we lose sight of this obvious truth? Because we're in the age of WAW. The rules of the Women are Wonderful game make it impossible for men to win: If women do something better than men, that is evidence of their superiority. If men outperform women, that's proof of discrimination—retrograde patriarchy and toxic masculinity. To violate the spirit of WAW is to invite havoc. Suggest, as the former president of Harvard Larry Summers did, that men may have some innate advantages in math and spatial reasoning, and prepare to change your job. Write a book or article titled “Are Men Necessary?,” "The End of Men," Man Down, or Women are From Venus, Men are from Hell," and the gods of the zeitgeist smile. #aei #news #politics #government

Man are superior than weak useless woman in almost all way. Man are better in fighting,sport,technology and almost all other thing. If any feminist bitch say woman are better than surely that bitch is mentally unsettle.

Men aren't designed to compete with women. To win is to lose to lose is to lose or maybe win depending on whether you get lucky later. Men are designed to compete for women. Women love to compete with men. Losing doesn't mean anything and winning proves you're superior. It's always great fun for a woman to beat a man in anything. "You just got beat by a girl". Emasculation gives no man a reason to compete with a woman. Plus it's better for a man to throw the fight in most situations. Ever play fight with a girlfriend? Did you try to beat her down....nope. In fact most of those play fights will inevitably lead to you in a ball holding your testes while they laugh and apologize.

Equality is impossible, the only way to be equal is under the law, other wise men are superior, under the law females love to crush the men who built the society they live in

This is all hype orchestrated by the left and the main stream media. Just like all the social justice issues none really grip the usual folks of the nation. No one of any significant mindset pays any attention to all of this rhetoric. It is a product of all the social media and media outlets. No value, no concern.

God Christina is annoying....she helped third wave of feminism to be introduced in the world and now she keeps presenting it as a good thing....Feminism must die. Period. Women spoiled it for themselves, it is bad social project. Men and women are not and never meant ro be equal. Only leftists think this way. Out in the nature, me. and women are not equal.

They are better at the job.
big craig the nonce (28 days ago)
maths, engineering and architecture are male dominated realms, that is not to say that men are better at the job. I'll discount 3 and 4 because they are unnecessary, of course only women can be mothers and only men can be fathers. As for 5 and 6, that is just a different skill set that suit both genders differently.

Once women are equal to men, they act like men and no men I am sure wants that. I believe in equality in genders but I don't believe that women should act like men just so that they can be equal. Please be feminine.

that is the view of equality of outcome that would want both genders to act the same.

Physically it has been proven that women are inferior to men. Look at all the weight lifting records. 😂 feminists are fucking idiots.
big craig the nonce (28 days ago)
ok 1: yeah, feminists are fucking idiots, and 2: yes, there is a difference between physical capabilities but the mental ones just aren't there and in a society that is now valuing mental over physical capabilities, the difference is becoming less prominent
We're both superior in different ways. We're the yin and yang.

Most women have been told from children they are great,as school is set up for girls teaching all children theoretically because when boys were taught practically in class their energy enthusiasm and willingness to get shot wrong to test their boundaries they outperformed girls easily,so to even the playing field they changed to theoretical schooling where sitting quiet and listening to a teacher writing on the board, now girls perform the same whilst boys are called disruptive and naughty instead of bored and not stimulated to learn because it makes it easier for lazy teachers and girls it's accepted so they refuse to change the way they teach boys and instead lump them full of prescription meds which are wrongly prescribed in order to fill the pockets of doctors who get back handed pay for promoting drug companies products at the expense of the minds and sanity of a generation of boys who grow up stunted intellectually and even psychologically damaged to their physiology being altered by psychotropic drugs meant to treat serious mental illness and not just a n underestimated young inquisitive mind which is not being taught properly all in the name of a more equal outcome of result due to manipulating the playing field in favour of girls. And still boys outperform girls when they are eventually removed from the shackles of school and allowed to practically learn in the real world where their natural ability to take calculated risks and explore their limitations no longer is seen as disruptive and instead a bonus as those are the people who.push our boundaries of understanding t a ending not the kids in class that listen to instruction, talk only when talked to and blindly follow those in front,they are the qualities of a lemming granted a lemming who will probably have better SAT scores but that only proves they can repeat what others told them to say, New ideas need to come from within not from others

Please do not accuse these great philosophers of being sexist without evidence. They were not sexist, they merely understood the difference between men and women; something which has been forgotten today. You cannot have differences without a lack of some perfection which is present in another.

This woman has no valid points here. She fails to discuss women's ability to maintain systems necessary for modern human survival: Transportation, Farming, Electrical, Plumbing, Law Enforcement. When investigated, it is found that men excel in all these things and women come up sub-par AT BEST. Women are inferior to men and they DEPEND on US for survival
Zangatti (1 month ago)
Women are inferior. They are more malicious. They have less sympathy. Less physical strength. Take all men away from society, and watch it crumble. Take all women away from society, and watch it be hindered but otherwise remain unchanged. We men maintain the power grid. We maintain the sewer network. We maintain the water distribution system. Go forth, women, and attempt to thrive in the hard world of maintaining the systems that you require for your survival in this modern age. I will stand there laughing at your feeble attempts at doing so successfully.

Is she ignorant or a plain egoist driven by sense of inferiority???????? Much of the world has been run mostly by men. Scientists (physicists, biologists, engineers), economists, prophets, philosophers, sages, poets,, are all men. All you have to do is look at the big picture with an open mind.
Sehrish Khan (2 months ago)
If women had been more intelligent throughout the history, there would have been evidence for their superiority.....Most of the philosophers, scientists, war experts, poets, novelists, strategists, economists have been men, even today. Isn't it strange that feminism has recently become one of the most heated debates among some women dealing with inferiority complex. When a woman achieves something, she is marketed like she has done something that was beyond her and some fools think it is a compliment --- it is not a compliment - it is a surprise that a woman, who wasn't supposed to be that great, still managed to perform better than man. Superiority comes naturally to men while to woman, it is unusual and a is looked at something that comes as a surprise

Men are more rational men invent creat build more than woman. as for multitasking well that means anybody is doing two half arsed tasks at once. That don't work in the building world. Thats called neglect. men do the work woman think is below them. Men die in war very few woman can make such claims. Men get screwed over in the family court men pay ridiculous alimony to lazy woman who need a man to pay for them. hell I'd be here all day. men are going MGTOW and woman can only blame themselves when men pull out of relationships and take their money with them. few woman will buy their own homes its easier to let the man accumulate the home and all. then the practice of woman is to take it. MGTOW is a new world mans life style lasies. enjoy your cats.

women are nicer in general just not to each other if they are the same age. It surprised me, coming from a small town, where girls always played with each other, and always sided with each other, in college tho women fucking hate each other. Its so fucking crazy, it doesn't matter if they are hot, igly or fat. they are so fucking jealous of each other. For example I thought these two girls were like best friends, because they are constantly talking, laughing, and sitting near each other in lab, but then the girls turns and shit talks the other. Its like I thought you two were friends. She like what would give you that impression . IMMM LIKE WHAT!!!

Men are better in ways and women are better in ways. Just stop some women from trying to control someone’s life. And also stop some men from trying to control people in ways. It’s pretty much equal. It just has to be balanced out a bit more on what people choose to do to affect it

There has NEVER been male supremacy or female supremacy. Both ideas were made up to further someone's agenda. We are all humans for better or for worse. The current tide of gynocentrism is part of the feminist propaganda that fills our society. We will not be able to successfully move our civilization into the future until we drop these insanely stupid ideas and realize we are all part of a greater society and that each individual has value in who they are as opposed to what gender they belong to.

female brains are on avareage smaller then male.. but they have more dense brainmatter. so in the end that evens out. no winner males have more .. lots more estosterone. and women more lots and lots more estrogen. testosterone does make a person more risktaking and can cause more irritation so more outburst in men but estrogen does affect emotion more so there are differnces.. no idea if any is better just depends on what you seek out to be a pro or con. strengthwise males are stronger and have more broad build skeleton so if you find strength the better quality i is males that are in that area superior on the whole. yet female bodies are smaller, lighter need less calories per day can grow older on average and also have a reproductive system build in that body. so effeciency wise its females. (nasa also takes this into consideration for long distance travel as less weight and less calories means less fuel needed to get there) each has pros and cons and it depends on what you find more important in a certain area

If they still insist that women are superior to men? Ask them this: “Do you believe in God? Did you know that He’s a MAN!?” Double whammy and winning!!!!!!😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

After modern feminism and loosing all my female friends and having my outstanding reputation dragged through the mud by screeching charlettons who take no time to concider the consequences, meaning or even execute any other though than momentary superiority over another. I'ts left me with PTSD (Because members of my family joined in, why would women lie? much less your sister) and severe trust issues towards women. I was betrayed in ways men never would dare betray eachother because the consequnces would be clear, and violent. So here i am, left with abroken body filled with anxiety and stress, constantly in fight or flight mode, because for 13 years of my life all it was was feminist chaos. Thank god for the age of Trump because I truly felt alone, all these men who agreed with women even when they were wrong just o they could get a chance at sex, no longer being the accepted norm, but now up for contest. I dont think ill be a proud mysoginist forever, but if millenial women continue their path of ignorance I feel like I have no other choice.

These questions probably are only contemplated in a world of technical conveniences IE electricity, clean running , and a working sewer system. Shut off the power and water and see what happens. While we're at it take away all the sperm so women can't have babies and be mommies. Even up the playing field a little. So many easy 2 ask questions when all the conveniences are in place. Both men and women are spoiled ny the conveniences bestowed upon them in a technology advanced world.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoabcKNg5i0 This explains the will and understanding. They both represent woman and man. Love is of the will. and will is of love. The will also mean good, Faith, hope and love but greatest of these is love. Love is meant the female. Love is from God, not from self. Man can only receive love from God by way of the female. The female receives love from the Lord directly and gives Gods love to the male. Willing not to do evil to the neighbor is of love.
