Several weeks ago I was watching a round-table political debate on television when one of the members of the discussion casually stated that, ‘It is becoming increasingly clear that women are better than men’.
Waiting for someone to challenge this statement I was amazed to see the entire panel, including the men, nodding in agreement or otherwise voicing their assent.
This is a belief that I have seen elsewhere and although I consider it nothing more than the opposite version of the same sexist rubbish that women have had to traditionally deal with (and still do in many parts of the world) I found it disturbing that such a statement could pass unchallenged on a public television program and that it seems to be becomingly increasingly common elsewhere. It’s regular for men to be presented in the media and other material as simplistic creatures ruled by simple animal desires such as food, beer and sex while women are the truly three-dimensional, complex and emotionally mature sex.
I was wondering if anyone believes the above assertion to be true, and why.
Sorry, no cites, just going from memory here.
