OK: who is best? - men or women ?

when it comes to work, science, creativity, skills etc

Let’s have a real debate about it

I go for the men

how about you

What about when it comes to driving :stuck_out_tongue:

Two holes good, three holes bad.

I go for the men, too; but, sadly, they don’t go for me.

You’re in Great Debates. Back up your assertion, please, with cites and an argument, or very few people will debate with you.

Better yet, read some of the other debates around here - especially the original posts, to see how they begin and continue. And I second the recommendation in another thread to use your Lotto winning to buy some punctuation and capital letters. Please.

Wow, it’s exciting to know that this age-old question will finally be unambiguously settled once and for all, and I’ll be here to witness it. Truly historic. Let the debate begin!

well, here are my arguments…

who have created sivilizations through history: men
who have created our modern society we have today: men
Who have delivered most of the inventions the last 200 years: men
who have delivered most of the inventions the last 50 years: men
who have created the political systems of the 19th and 20th century: men
who have won most of the nobel prizes : men

Well folks, I don’t know about the rest of you but that’s all the evidence I need.

Colour me convinced.

Minotaurus, may I please subscribe to your newsletter?

Women might have done those things if not systematically denied the opportunity, in practically every culture more technologically advanced than the mesolithic, to do anything but “women’s work.”

In my experience women are the intellectual equals of men except in one or two minor areas. I’ve noticed women have a hard time giving or receiving directions – especially directions involving “north” and “south” rather than “left” or “right.” Maybe our male hunter ancestry fits us better for that kind of thing, I dunno. But it’s a trivial thing on which to base any all-encompassing male chauvinism.

I predict this thread will go to six pages.

Girls rule, boys drool. Have you heard about our spelling? We’re excellent spellers.

one female anthropolog said some years ago that, if women have ruled the world since the dawn of mankind, we would still be living in straw huts


don’t remember because i read it a decade ago in a magazine or newspaper

Real or imaginary?

I predict this thread will reach the point of total degeneracy (if only for the presence of Minotaurus) and be locked far before then. I’m giving uh… (thinks back to the thread about bookies’ calculations) 6 to 1 odds. Any takers?

Maybe this thread should be moved to IMHO?

You forgot some of the most important things!

who can write their name in the snow: men
who has bigger balls: men
who would win in an arm wrestling competition: men
who is the most pointlessly arrogant about being superior: men

Could you possibly make a thread any more embarassing?

I’ll take 2 pages for $100. Given it’s beginnings, it had nowhere to go but up.

Is that a challenge? :slight_smile:

I’m going to have to disagree on that one.

I’m too lazy to provide a real cite, so here is a Googlecite:
