Power To The Women!!
    #3799825 - 02/18/05 07:47 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

What do you say? It seems that men+power usually equals something not too good. Seeing how men did a pretty bad job up until now dealing with power, why not give a chance to women?

For some reason, i'd personally feel more comfortable if it was a woman governing the world today.

Plus, if you take a look at the radical turn our society is taking concerning women and their social status, like how more and more women are getting degrees and diplomas, how their average salary is climbing and climbing, basically how they're getting more recognition, money, and power, then it is easier to imagine that one day women will rule the world!! and maybe for the better.

margaret thatcher was not exactly ghandi.

Men and women have one thing in common: they're human.

If more women get into power don't expect things to change too much.

By the way, at this point it doesn't matter who becomes president, an elitest puppet will be installed.

Woman are more vicious than men when they are in power. Look at the Queen, what a psychobitch. Actually woman have always been more powerful than men when it comes to ruling this planet... well actually.. the men were just as powerful but it's not the way people think with woman.

Are women decisive enough?

Testosterone drives males to compete and attain power. It also makes men more "action" oriented.

Power exists, and a lot of its effects aren't the greatest, but it is a necessary evil in order to protect and maintain societies/countries. When it comes time to utilize that power, men will have less inhibitions toward using it, which is needed when life/death is in the balance.

What makes you think they haven't been in power for decades? They control half of the money and all of the pussy. Seems pretty "in control" to me.

Women do occupy offices of power in this world.  Women are members of Congress in the United States.  Margaret Thatcher was the prime minister of Britain for a while.  Either Indonesia or the Phillipines (I forget which) is currently run by a female prime minister.  India was run by a female prime minister for a while.

I think women would do about the same shoddy job as men.  Men+power=not good is wrong.  The proper equation is  people+power=not good.


For some reason, i'd personally feel more comfortable if it was a woman governing the world today.

You seem to be advocating a world where one person calls the shots for everybody.  That would be a worldwide dictatorship.  I would not like that.


one day women will rule the world!! and maybe for the better.

What if they had PMS and they pushed "the button" because of that?  :smirk:

I think that women have a larger preference for peace over war, on the opposite of men. I'm not saying that their would be no war with women in power, but i'm definitely saying that the world would be more peaceful.

Take for example..a Parrty. If there is going to be a fight, 29 times out of 30 the fight will be between two men. Is that not proof!!?? lol jk

I don't think that women would hesitate to use power when its a matter of life/death.

How about this: put a woman in charge of the country and a man in charge of the military. The woman will judge when it is best to go to war, and the man will be the one taking action when its war-time.

This way, a country will not go to war for unnecessary reasons because a woman would only go to war when there really is a need for it. A woman would never have gone to war for the reasons Bush went to war, and that is because, as you say, men have less inhibitions towards using power.

And when a war is needed, let men take care of it, action and violence are fields where men like to play, and IMO they're better players than women.

True, but globally, the world is run by like 95% men and 5% women. With such small numbers of women in power, we haven't really had the chance to see how the world could turn out if it was run by a larger number of women than men. And i think the results would be positive.

A woman who's less inclined towards violence would also be less inclined to seek power. After all, government is force, even when that force is not used overseas.

yes, unfortunately there are a few exceptions...you're right i'm probably naive, power corrupts men exactly the same way that it corrupts women. But i was thinking that maybe women are for the most part inherently immunized against this kind of corruption. Maybe i haven't seen enough of life to make myself a right opinion on this, but from the few of it that i have seen, my opinion still holds that women are generally more peaceful than women.

BTW, i just wanted to point out that for some reason i feel more emotionally hurt by "kthnxbye" than by "you're incredibly naive and wrong". just an observation

I'm surprised more women aren't in politics, considering how manipulating they can be.
