    Re: The End of Men

    ...What if the modern, postindustrial economy is simply more congenial to women than to men?
    Imagine an article that reversed that or subbed in various ethnicities in place of genders.

    As to the OP itself: The trend of increasingly disproportionate female education certainly exists, but I don't think it really proves what the authors are implying.

    Poor HP stockholders. And to think the GOP are actually running her as a candidate. Wow. They must be desperate.

    I'm not down on women being CEO's and **** like that, if they can do it, be my guest.
    What I do dislike is the thought process that women are superior to men and that they can/have done it all by themselves.

    That is what I'm calling bs on.
    It's really easy to climb to the top, when you have people carving out special exemptions for you.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Don't go there... LOL. You saw what happened to the authors of The Bell Curve.

    Gladwell's theories on success are interesting.

    Hopefully to a society that doesn't keep score of who is where in the workplace: male, female, black, white, brown, olive, red or yellow. It really doesn't matter... does it?

    May the best man or woman win the job available... but we know that ain't gonna happen any time soon.
    Politics won't allow it.

    Time to ban women rights and introduce a minimum wage based on gender (female min. wage being lower of course) lol )

    I guess white men would be the experts on this one, right?

    I like to think we are moving towards more balance, where women contribute and gain from society in a way that suits then, and the same for men, and hopefully this balance would bring out the best of both genders. It should have been how things were all along, but with gender discrimination and women now feeling a need to prove themselves in a way that men understand and that gains respect in the world as it is, the fine gender status quo has been greatly damaged. Hopefully, it can be repaired and the outcome is that both genders gain equally but in their own ways, and both are equally respected.

    It is true that countries will experience greater economic success as women gain more power, because women tend to have a different approach to problem solving. As it is, most economic issues are only benefitting from the more masculine imput, and what women would be doing if they had the freedom and equality to do so is not being done. Women in fincance roles are doing the same as men are, because a more female approach is not yet recognised as valid. Hopefully, it wont take a rock bottom social and economic crisis, for gender balance to be introduced.
