Is There Anything Good About Men?

That is the title of an article by Roy F. Baumeister, Eppes Eminent Professor of Psychology & Head of Social Psychology Area, Florida State University (what a long title).

I found this to be very interesting: Is There Anything Good About Men?

For those to lazy to read it, here is a summary:

  1. Feminists and Machos are both wrong.
  2. Men and Women are equal but different.
    1. Average IQ is the same for men and women, but there are more men at the highest and lowest ranges.
      1. Same for height, money, etc. Men are more likely to be at the extremes, good or bad.
  3. Men and Women have different social outlooks
    1. Men prefer large groups that are loosely bound.
    2. Women prefer small tight-nit groups.
  4. Men are expendable
    1. If half the men in a population die, the next generation can still be the same size. But, if half the women die, the next generation will be half the size.
    2. So – men end up taking the riskiest jobs – even though women could do them.
    3. Riskier jobs also carry greater rewards, which is why historically, you see more men at the “top.”

That is probably the worst summary ever – go read the article if this intrigues/enrages you.
