Article on benevolent sexism
@manimal, as for some of your posts on gender and socialization, I can recall some going back several months. How many do you want me to dig up? Here’s a recent one:
“Gender suppression has very little to do with it.”
It’s hard to know where to draw the line between the influence of “natural inclinations” and socialization. You may find the emergence of a division of labor interesting.
@dalniente, Correct. However, I wonder why you’re so certain nobody knows for sure… whether there are or aren’t people out there who know is something you could only know if you were one of them.
You never know who holds the answers to your questions. Assuming that people don’t, that is a perfect way to miss out on a lot of knowledge and other good stuff.
There are huge differences between men and women, nobody should have to explain that or give examples, as it’s all really obvious and fundamental stuff. Social conditioning is also, in most cases, obvious and basic stuff.
Men are men, women are women. That’s all there’s to it. I love being a man, and I don’t see any reason why women shouldn’t love being women.
It’s funny, most people just have a good time, keeping it real, but then there’s the feminists who are just full of hatred and anger. Just because they’re jealous of what SOME men have.
It’s not hard to discern which side is the crazy one.
@manimal, someone’s view could be accurate without them knowing it. The reason why it’s so hard to figure out how much of a role socialization plays is that many of these things are extremely widespread (and ingrained), and thousands of years in the making. Just think of what it would take (possible ethical implications?) for in-depth research.
I think the idea of feminism is to stop the “Some men” From being All the men, just in much the same way we have the occupy movements, why we had African Americans protest the million man march, and why we have gay rights and legalization happening right now. Because people stand up and change things, that they feel is ridiculous. Just as you know that feminism is ridiculous. How does society evolve? This is a great example! It is a social equalizer (I believe, you don’t have to). Nothing crazy about that in my opinion. I think both sides are crazy. If people feel wronged they should say so. If Some people benefit at the expense of others, then shame on them!
Annnnyyy ways @dalniente, thanks for your interest in this article. :)
:) @manimal, Lets be more civil please to the other members ;) Don’t fit a preconceived notion your claiming doesn’t do as wrong.
Maybe being a gentleman should just be called kindness and if the woman doesn’t want to act the same way then that’s the source of the problem?

@everymorningbornfromtheashes, No shit they are capable, but there is an obvious biological reason some things are more chick-like or dude-like. And there is nothing wrong with people living like that.
