Ask CNN or the Democrats :P -- NOT a political statement, but just what I always hear and read from theirs and major media propaganda.
@Inbox Study world history and the story of countries that were ruled by women. Violent conflict has been just as common wit women rulers.
Oh I know. Behind most wars, there's a woman pulling the strings.
@Inbox Look at the track record for countries that have had female rulers and see how often they go to war when their is a female at the helm. What people fail to realize is that the kind of women who aspire to political power tend to have more masculine-like traits, especially with respect to assertiveness/aggressiveness and the use of force.
Refusing sex with a woman would be a severely punishable crime.
Evil witch queens who stick to power until they die. That's dictatorship. Monoarchy is modern way of saying dictatorship.
@DaMack999 you’d shit yourself if you had to go through half of what the Queen has.
@Shuttlebus78 Are you serious? The current Queen's position as the head of state is nothing but symbolic.
@Puppystarfish23 If you're referring to Theresa May and Margaret Thatcher as "extremely successful", you're delusional. Elizabeth I on the other hand, was one of the most if not the most successful monarch in English history.I think the question was more referring to the society being matriarchal though. As in women leading households, being socially superior to men, etc.
Margaret Thatcher was a racist woman, who had demented views about islam or women who wore the hijab. I’m pretty sure that woman is burning in hell or being tortured in her grave for the atrocities she’s done to others. Just because her emphasis was on neoliberal policies benefitting the UK, US and Canada what about the others who suffered? We led to believe what we support is something that is socially just when it’s not. I mean people disbelieve in God or refuse to care about previous prophets that walked on this earth who were pious, smart, socially-just human beings but people pushed that aside. By the enlightenment period the focus was self thought. I really don’t get why we are forced to believe that capitalism or communism is good? I’m not a fan of either ideology. Karl Marx was a communist and someone who not religious, he was an atheist. Funny thing is Marx advocated for workers rights and less on companies exploiting those rights. Well how is America under capitalism any different then China under communism? It’s not both countries oppress its people with absurd working conditions. If life was so great then is suicide and violence on the rise more then ever? I know my response doesn’t entirely focus on “female” leaders and I’m not saying every female who was or is a politician is bad. However, misusing power is a scary thing, especially when people look the other way with ignorance or worse, praising it.
@Highwayrobbery oh sure it’s all so easy when it isn’t you or your story. Get bent.
@Inbox what part didn’t you understand?
Yee right, if woman were leaders from start, we would be living in trees.
@__inkRat then perhaps we wouldn’t be living in the midst of an impending environmental crisis and wouldn’t have demolished the natural habitats of a variety of other species.
Yee we wouldn't, but nature would try to kill us on every given chance. You usualy would not live longer than 28 in fact death at 20 would not be so out of place. Nea, I will take my chances now, even thought I could survive in such enviroment to. I dont think you fully understand what life would be in trees. Non Of our comforts including sop, teeth brush, shampoon would exist.
@__inkRat The fact that you think that society would lack all innovation in technology and infrastructure is a sexist and ridiculous idea. But on top of that there are tons of groups and societies that coexisted with nature and have had life expectancies longer than 28.
The fact that you only see the bad and don't get past the surface of issues is a typical trait of a brainwashed SJWs.
@Inbox As a person who has only ever lived in the U. S. I can only speak for my experience here. There’s certainly some good things about our country, but there’s also a shit ton of bad and black women get an even shittier end of the stick. We’ve seen where male leadership goes. What’s so crazy about wanting to try a new option?
@Inbox I don’t think people look past negativity until it suits them- that includes you.
@Shuttlebus78 I also think that people make wild assumptions without getting to know more -- that includes you. @Cherokeehp I have no issue with diversity - I think we can agree that diversity is a good thing. I don't agree with blanketing the entire male race as a failure. No systems, technology, etc are ever 100% perfect. Are you watching too much CNN?
@Cherokeehp because woman are not risk driven. In early days of humanity it was pick plants and not evolve or hunt and evolve. So what is so sexist about basic biology? In order to fuel bigger more capable brains early humans needed more protein/ energy. Its way more productive to hunt/ risk and eat meat than eat plants all day. Yes there are primitive cultures where people live longer, but its average life expectancy, back then kids died young, and people did not have medicine. In fact throw modern human in same enviroment starting from scratch and his live expectancy will drop a lot. In order to create new tehnology yo need energy, relative peace and resources. With not taking risk at best you will have one of them for any amount of time. But yee lets scream sexism just because we can, and lets not look into why. Ps.I would not be so proud of living only in USA.
@__inkRat well for starters I’m not proud at all that I live in the U. S. I was just born here and I haven’t left because I’m only 20 and don’t have the finances to pack up and leave and move to another country.Second, there were female hunters. Researchers have discovered bones of prehistoric women along side their hunting tools and bones of their prey. Women can hunt, women can innovate, and women can lead. We wouldn’t still be braving the wilderness just because we were being led by women.
In neolithic period I would agree with you, but not in paleolithic period, nor before it. And even from neolithic period it would be hard to tell how biface was used, as they were made and with time remade into arrows. Also I do find your claim of buried with weapons and prey as ood, because in paleothic period early humans did burry there dead with primitive stone tools and animal bones (animal cults). There are no reasons to think that those animals were killed by said person or said person was hunter. Yes woman can do all those things, but I gues you dont have idea how hard life was for early humans. Woman are believed to have done: child raising, gathered berries, and other easy food and food making.
@__inkRat I’m not saying women should have abandoned all their roles. I’m saying It’d be nice to see women in leadership roles. The U. S. has never had a single woman president.
actually women leaders start more wars than men
@Cherokeehp You're not proud to be born here? My girl, you have no idea just how lucky you are to be American. I understand you're young and probably have NOT traveled, but the access to food, water, shelter, opportunities, - including the ability to have the freedom to do it, America is one of the few places that allows all this. I say this to you whose family were immigrants and came with $18 in their pocket in 1990 and rose to the upper class through extreme hard work - we are living examples of the American dream. We've seen horrific things. It's amazing how Westerners complain about so many insignificant things like gender roles or equality nonsense, then proceed not to take the advantages that the West has the LUXURY of.
@Inbox well for starters what, exactly am I supposed to be proud of. I appreciate the freedoms I do have, but I was just born here. I don’t think it’s an achievement just to be born in a specific place. Also my family didn’t immigrate here. My ancestors were dragged here against their will on slave ships. The U. S. has good things, but it also has a lot of bad things, and it’s up to its citizens to be critical of it so we can improve. The U. S. is not perfect. It’s not some fantastical utopia where everybody’s dreams come true.
The fact that you're using the "slave" argument tells me all I need to know - you have a backward mindset, rather than a forward looking one. I don't know what kind of experiences you've had, but I'll entertain your argument. First, access to clean water and food on a 24/7 basis - even the homeless have better access to welfare than most countries - I won't go any further than this because if you cannot infer from this, than I cannot help you. Second, you have only a 4.2% chance of being born an American. Thirdly, if you're that concerned about how your ancestors were dragged against their will and how it is somehow keeping you down, I suggest you go travel to another country (when you have the money) where you barely speak the language AND only have $18 in your pocket and try to survive. Additionally, the advantage you have is that you speak the language and I'm pretty sure you have more than $18 to your name. Lastly, we need to criticize our country to improve it, but not ignorant racist or sexist ones. For the record, I agree that discrimination does exist against the African American community, but I also think some it is manufactured. Constantly being reminded of the past and that the world is against you is extremely demoralizing and discourages many from achieving their goals, aka creates a backward mindset. The US may not perfect, but it's far better than most.
Bloody rapist disliked. Please die.
This is the best answer i've seen and it takes a big person to admit this since you're a woman. I applaud you.
@john23232323 That's so sweet of you. The first step in moving forward is admitting what you aren't capable of doing.
Democrats aren’t stupid they know what they are doing is to influence and the best method of influence is emotional
@Tslav_ You're right.
And Bernie would've been 10x better than Kamala
@Highwayrobbery So would Satan.
@Highwayrobbery Satan would be better than Kamala.
Your role model for humans is the bonobo society.Wow!!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
@BuiltLikeATank I guess we should elevt teroid junkies threatening ww3 every second as politicians. Women are less violent and empathic according to studies.
@BuiltLikeATank Its on the internet somewhere. Not interested in looking it up because I don't support gynarchy, just saying women are more chill. Are you a tankie?
"Are you a tankie"You spotted me. 🤣
@BuiltLikeATank No seriously. You a tankie or just a troll?
I'm a tankie indeed.
How would it be different?
I don't have a better guess than everyone. I just know that men and women are different, which, logically should mean that a world run by women would be different
Interesting, I always hear that female competition can be fierce. Personally, I think it's because women tend to spend their whole lives sharpening their emotional and social intelligence, thus making it more competitive to get the best guys on a romantic level, but it seems you think politically or in general as well?
@Inbox we don't do it for men. females are naturally competitive in all fields
@___nik Try reading my response again.
@Inbox you just said females are competitive for male attention. i'm saying females are just competitive, not just for male attention.
we spend waaaaay too much time on women's needs already
I’m sorry you feel that way.
South Korea and China
@J2ohhhhh Neither of which have female leaders?
So maybe it's not about the gender but ethnicity. The world needs more Asian leaders.
@J2ohhhhh I hardly think so. I'm not interested in totalitarian dictatorships nor communism.
You really think that it is possible to oppresse 1.4 billion people? In China you are busy with enforcing traffic law and at the same time they build a 400 metres building without construction petmits cus shit is so hectic and it is just physically not possible to control so many things at the same time.
@J2ohhhhh Dude, don't even try. I've read up on China closely, I'm a student of Political Science soon with a Master's Degree and I've written essays on China. I know all about the the secret police of Gouanbou who kidnap dissidents, how Internet is completely censored and how much propaganda the CCP under Xi Jinping spew out, they even cut out the parts of the Presidential debates this election that concerned China for all Chinese citizens.
@J2ohhhhh And I strongly advise against trying to make some racist case for Asian superiority, trust me when I say you'll loose that debate.
The countries with the best COVID response are countries with more authoritarian governments. Democratic Republics struggle due to the decentralized control of government which leads to longer control times
Which country? New Zealand, Germany, Iceland, Taiwan, Finland, Norway, and Danemark.
And you think it's *solely* due to female presidents and not also other factors like geographical positions, the patterns of the covid spread in the rest of the world, and the fact that countries like Denmark, Iceland and Norway have a very low population compared to other nations, thus it is far easier to control outbreaks and spreads? Germany's case is quite easy to explain: They isolated the minute the virus broke out and only allowed for a maximum of 2 people meeting for a long while. And given that Germany is a federal state, regulations vary from different states or "Länder".
So apparently, the countries you're comparing to the USA or countries led by men are of only around 10 million vs 330 million? Apples aren't oranges. Moreover, you're assuming that success in one issue automatically means superiority? SMH
I think you mean Taiwan and NZ. These countries have women leader and had somwhat good response to Covid. But these are very small countries with very small population so it's not a fair comparison
@AlexanderAnttila I can assure that China resembles what you read about it as capitalist countries resemble the wealth of nations.
@J2ohhhhh And I know that is a lie.
Economic growth is higher than in western countries. There are 3 rape cases /100000 people while in uk for example it's 96. China is number one in pisa rankings, so education is much better than in the west (or we are superior who knows) I don't know how you measure the effecincy of a government but everything that can be measured is improving and better than in the west, it isn't propaganda it is just a fact. My father didn't have a proper pair of trousers when he left China and I was raised to eat the last pice of rice from the plate and when I went to China people were wasting food like there were no tomorrow. US has 10.5% poverty rate, China has 0.3. When Deng Xiaoping came into power he was like "I won't gonna be bitching on Mao and his cultural revolution, just wanna fix shit" and he lifted more people from powerty than anyone in history. EU has 65% tariffs on Chinese made wheels 55% on bicycles and god knows the rest but they cry about China's protectionist trade policies. Just look at the numbers and it will tell you how incompetent western politicians are so they need to blame it on someone, like China. Why take responsibility for the shity covid measures when you can just call it the Chinese virus? When things are going well in a country people are following and no oppression is needed. "Fill their belly, empty their mind." If you look at murder statistics, evil people do a very small percentage, it is usually careless drivers and work accidents. Being such a wanker as western politicians causes way more trouble than being oppressive or even evil.
@J2ohhhhh yeah no thanks. They started the pandemic to begin with and treat their people like shit. Fuck totalitarianism.
@J2ohhhhh Alright, let us break down these claims you've made. Yes, China is rapidly growing economically; but this is relative. You're arguing from an assumption of Asian superiority, but then what would you say about the 60's and 70's when the US were at the very top of the world both economically and militarily? The Saudi Arabian Oil embargo against the US wherein they cut of oil exports to hurt the American economy, but the US was so filthy rich that it was like a fart in space, barely even noticeable. What was the truth then? That white leaders were superior? Or by all means, some decades before that at the height of the British Empire, the largest and wealthiest empire in world history that controlled 23% of the world population. Up until now the US have dominated the world economy and still have the most powerful and influential military. And yet because China is experience growth because of outsourcing of African nations you call that superiority? Point is: The fortunes and downfalls of countries are ever changing, it isn't an argument for superiority. And then you go on about rape statistics and make only one comparison with China and the UK, but fail to mention that the safest country on earth is Iceland, and after them all the other Nordic countries. And as for education: You're making a strawman. What China has ranked top place in regarding PISA is science, as in one category, they aren't in the top with regards to other areas such as reading and equal opportunities with regards to sex and socio-economic backgrounds. China is doing very much below average there. PISA is also only one measuring site, others have ranked Finland on first place regarding quality of education overall. "Everything that can be measured is improving and better than in the west", source on that please. What your father taught you about food has nothing to do with anything.
And as for poverty rates that is also true regarding China's fast growth but is still connected to my point on relativity, and you once more make but one comparison as if the West is only the US or the UK, but take Ukraine for example, they only have 1.3%, and Belarus only 5.6%, these statistics can change very much and quite quickly, and poverty rates aren't the only measurements by which to identify welfare. The wealthiest countries by GDP for instance, remains as the US, Luxemburg, Switzerland, all the Nordic countries, Ireland, Germany etc. According to this list for instance, China numbers on place 89. www.worldatlas.com/.../...ntries-in-the-world.html And as for murder statistics; Iceland has you beat with only 0.30%. So in conclusion: Your very disarranged wall of text is barely the shadow of an argument for Asian superiority. And I'll say this and only say it once: Only heavily insecure people feel the need to deal in notions of superiority. It's a pathetic doctrine to follow.
@J2ohhhhh And people call the virus the Chinese virus because it was China that spread it. As simple as that. You people were experimenting with a beta-version of Covid-19 in some remote laboratory and then you lost control, we've all seen the reports. If you did loose control that is; it does strike me as suspicious that just as China is clawing to shift geopolitics, a deadly virus just happens to spread from Asia to weaken all western economies.
That's correlation, not causation. Those countries have female prime ministers because those are some of the most developed countries and they have dealt well with COVID for the same reason.
China was numero uno economy through most of human history. Without once invading any other country. It was peacefully trading with anyone than it was England who tried to hook people on opium then semi-colonised China and that's where China's defensive realist approach to international relations is from. The US got wealthy because of one good opportunitist decision, by supporting western european countries after world war two with a condition of purchasing its products. Credit belongs to the US for that, it was a smart and win-win thing but it isn't really a recent example. Luxembourg was a country blessed with natural resources such as iron and coal and made a relatively wise decision to turn it's economy to tirtiary sector when Europe started to turn away from coal and China's steel industry was growing. Northern countries were in a lucky situation with their geographics and they were being able to avoid wars.Same decision making what Hungary had, but because being in the middle of Europe it was not really an option, it isn't about better decision making, but their given position on the map.
While Europe had it all. It had the colonies the wealth the technology and they managed to fight eachother and lose the bettet portion of it. And what is the west still doing today? Bitching on China, bitching on eachother bitching on EU bitching on brexit, bitching on immigration, bitching and bitching and bitching. China don't even care about colonisation, it happened because of the lack of security power. Now China military is fixed and thats it no need for bitching, because when China needs salty water it goes to the ocean instead of crying. China was invaded for more than 100 years, Mao managed really well in war time, just like Churchill, or Che Guevara but he was not the best leader for peace time (just like Churchill and Guevara, I think they were the same archetype of leaders). So basically it was since Deng Xiaoping when China's economy grown from 150 billion to almost 15trillion. Without invading one single country or having any natural resources abundance or starting from an advantageous position and last but not least bitching on anything.
This isn't because China is superior this is just the nature of democracy. Hafl of the population will always be complaining while the other half will be complaining about the ones who are complaining and don't respect democratic votes just look at the shit show around brexit or US election. In China everyone takes their portion of discomfort and that's it, no bitching for inequality. You can have double figure economic growths and there will always be people with 0 experience and even less knowledge telling that they could do better and your only job is to oppose the ones who lifted 500 million people from extreme poverty. The main reason for that uplift is that China opened it's market to the foreigners and implied western policies to it's economy. And this is why Chinese decision making is better, because they don't care where things coming from they don't have this idea pioneering ego, they just judge things for their utility. The internet isn't censored because they want you to read little redbook, it is censored because they see the amount of bullshit and lies on western media. Most people in China doesn't even care about politics, this is what happens when things are improving.
Fucking people shouldn't study politics without understanding globalisation, history, sociology, economics and the rest. Must regret not to go for international relations, would be more useful of a degree. I'm done here though.
uhhh aaaactually they all have more in common than that, like being islands, being economically irrelevant to the world (thus no travel) and having low population densitybut please ignore the facts for sexism
@J2ohhhhh south korea is a totalitarian state that tracks its citzen's every location, plus they got a very non contagious strain of covid19china is straight up lying about their numbers
Arden is a futon liberal/labour moron.
You're a moron
Right! Have you heard of Alexandra Ocasio Cortez? Her speech was phenomenal.
