A female dominated world
« on: March 26, 2012, 03:02:04 PM »
Everything seems to be run by men. Politics, science, religion, education, technology, the list goes on. Pretty much nearly every aspect of human endeavour is dominated by men. I wonder what a world run more by women would be like. I imagine it would result in more peace, harmony, understanding, less competitiveness and more cooperation. I'm not talking about a world where women rule, but one where women are in charge more than they are currently.

I imagine it would be the same. Men and women are not as different as you think.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

^^^^^Having had good and bad male bosses and good and bad female bosses, I am inclined to agree. But that doesn't mean women shouldn't get an equal shot at effing up the world.
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

Ngfm, don't you think a more female dominated world would be better, what I mean is, more balance, more female input?

You will, although my guess is that the world will already be pretty fucked up by then.
Evolution is slow compared to our lifetime, but social evolution is probably even slower. It took almost ten thousand years[1] for women to be given equal rights. And those rights aren't even recognized around the world.
 1. If we start counting from the appearance of the first civilization.

Women and men are both human beings with all the good and bad inherent in that. There are some gender differences, depending on culture, upbringing, etc. Like women tend to be more verbally adept and men more physically adept, or whatever. But both are equally smart, equally good and equally bad.

Maybe because I was raised by an abusive mother, I don't have any illusions that a female-dominated world would be a kinder, gentler place.

Maybe a world run by effeminate gay men?  :?

Two words:

Margaret Thatcher.

Another two words:

Falklands War.

Not all women are peaceful and educated. Imagine Sarah Palin as president - she seriously frightens me. With religion, what about Shirley Phelps? She's clearly insane, she's definitely not understanding. But these are just examples.

It might be more peaceful if we had a peaceful woman in power.

Agreed. In fact, Stephen Fry for Prime Minister.

True. And by "true" I mean that the English food I was actually able to find[1] was good. Everything else was foreign. I could barely find English people in England. How fucked up is that?

I hang my head in shame at these exported representations of what passes for American food. We on both sides of the pond share a fondness for fried, boiled, salted, sugared, caffeinated starch covered with grease.  :P

But at least you have the good sense to give everyone health care.

Why are all those Indian, Jamaican, Pakistani, Egyptian, Nigerian, Hong Kong, Malaysian and Trinidadian foreigners in England? Besides selling all the decent cuisine in nifty street stands? Comes from all those centuries of the English colonizing everyone on the planet, taking all the goodies so the people have nothing left at home. Don't even get me started. Ask the Irish.

Where in England did you visit? You might find some places more dense with foreign people than others. If in London, then you're looking at a large mix of cultures. Though my town has a strong Eastern European population, but they're still a minority group, despite what some people like to believe.

Foreign food is actually quite popular here, so I can imagine a foreigner coming to try the British cuisine might be a bit limited for choice in restaurants and cafes.

You'll normally find things like roast dinners, lamb joint, pies (like Steak and Ale), steak dishes and fish n chips - I know Wetherspoons do dishes like those (they're a chain of bar/restaurants around the country) - their menus try to offer some variety - you'll also get lasagnes, curries, chillies, burgers and the like. If you find a tea shop then you can have tea and scones and feel like a British stereotype.

Our house tends to have quite a mix of food, we still eat plenty of different British dishes, but we also eat a lot of foreign food.


And of course, yes, we pretty much tried to take over the world once upon a time, it's quite possible the British empire has brought some influence to our cuisine, well, you can blame the British Empire for our obsession with tea.  :o But we've had influxes of people coming here since we became weaklings. We have a strong Asian community and it might be responsible for the reason we enjoy Asian food instead of the Empire's colonisation of India.

The current complaint you'll find is eastern Europeans, but we adopted the open border policy of the EU, so we don't have as much border control as we used to. Not that I mind people immigrating over, it brings a nice variety of culture and some are quite interesting people, but obviously some would argue we've over done it and wonder if it's good for our economy.

Both Australia's political and royal head's of state are women. I don't think it makes a huge difference, but then again they don't actually have much real power.

As for differences between men and women:

I'll give you brits points for two things: popularizing tea and your accents.

You probably realize that a British accent can get you employed, drunk, befriended and/or laid in pretty much any US city. As one US fangirl remarked about Benedict Cumberbatch (oh yeah, may I add that you have some goofy names?), "his accent is like liquid sex."

As for me, tea is liquid sex. Scones with it are da bomb. :)

Not that I'm planning on benefiting from it in any way...but how are Australian accents received?

Or has Mel Gibson spoilt it forever with his rants?

A loud aussie is as bad as a Bronx NY accent--grating on the ears. But a soft-spoken aussie accent is also liquid sex. Try it on the sheila tonight. ;)

Here where I'm from, when a Foster's beer or Outback Steakhouse commercial comes on, everyone has to try their best Australian accent.  Usually doesn't sound anything like the accent.

So...why haven't I moved over the states? Kind of reminds me of this scene from Love Actually (one of the only romantic comedies I actually like):



Not all British accents can be sexy though, I mean if you're from the West Country. Darth Vader is actually from Bristol, so good thing they got James Earl Jones to voice over instead.

Bill Bailey on the West Country accent:

lol, I don't actually. But to be fair I've managed to avoid watching them. I do have Two Weeks Notice, another Hugh Grant film. That was another funny one. Does The Hangover count as a romantic comedy? It ends on a wedding.  ;)

So do we think that a more female centred world would be the same as what we currently have, or do we feel that it would different? I just want to get back on topic.

Oh no, I just realized that ACDC is Australian. :o
 
I take everything back. Scratch the aussie accents off my liquid sex list. Delete Hugh and substitute Edward Petherbridge...hell, I'd even take Michael Caine, as long as he didn't shout. What is that he speaks-- cockney?

Everything seems to be run by men.

In some ways this is an illusion. Women control the spending in our economy.

Further more, more women are getting post-secondary educations than men.

I think, its more of a woman's world than you think

Here in Canada, men have to pay for prostate exams. The 30$ is symbolic. Women don't pay for breast cancer exams.

It may still be true that many of the top jobs are held by men but very few people are in the top jobs.
