It is in the spirit of human intercourse, untrammelled by paywalls and anonymous peer reviews, to freely exchange ideas and reflect on life. In that light I reproduce here, for greater public attention, comment No 41 on my post “Intelligence and General Knowledge”. Good books have been based on less.

“This is true in my experience – also true is that women (90% of my colleagues, and 100% of my mentors in long career as man in human services/education) enjoy a very similar advantage over men when it comes to communication (in terms of affective comprehension, attentive consultation, co-operation and consensus-building).

A happy and long-lasting marriage is a reflection of this simple biological fact of life. In a successful (increasingly rare) partnership, a man and a woman complement one another in using their differing intellectual and social problem-solving skills together to cope with whatever life throws at them.

It is a commonplace among men that women “talk too much”, but a wise husband learns to tune out some of his wife’s ‘distracting’ verbalization, because he has learnt that it is an absolutely necessary component of female ratiocination and genius – just as his wife has learnt to overlook his apparent self-absorption and obsession with factoids and hobbies.

Arguments caused by these differences are crucial tests of both partners’ ability to learn about their own abilities and limitations, as well as their ability to appreciate another person’s perception of reality under stress – to support one another, to ‘deepen their love’ and to continue to build their lives together. It takes much patience, giving, and forgiving of oneself – as much as of the other person, so that that person does not become a stranger.

Unfortunately, too many people of both sexes fail this test, resorting to old needful and selfish childhood attitudes and behaviours that are fatal to an adult relationship. Hence our depressing divorce rate of 50%, and its doleful effect on everyone involved, especially children caught in the playground crossfire.

Infantile social ‘justice’ warriors (whatever their emotional motivations for playing on these differences – mommy/daddy problems?) will get nowhere with their absurd gender theories – which are actually a denial of biological and evolutionary science.

If there is a Divine Plan, there is no better proof of it than in the magnificent and complementary differences between males and females of our species, evident everywhere in Nature. It is the Truth, it is pure Genius in our lives, and it is why we’re still on this planet, despite all the odds against us.”

I am a much better person, and man, for having learnt so much from the women with whom I have worked – and those I have served in my career.

    It was quite good until he reached the bit about a Divine Plan.

    He could just as well have said “If the Theory of Evolution is to be entertained, there is no better proof of it than in the magnificent and complementary differences between males and females of our species, evident everywhere in Nature.”

    Or even “If the notion of particle/wave duality is to be entertained, there is no better analogy for it than in the magnificent and complementary differences between males and females of our species, evident everywhere in Nature.”

    I actually quite like and personally identify with Christopher Langan’s concept and definition of God.

    I also believe God can be known and defined.

    “I believe in the theory of evolution, but I believe as well in the allegorical truth of creation theory. In other words, I believe that evolution, including the principle of natural selection, is one of the tools used by God to create mankind. Mankind is then a participant in the creation of the universe itself, so that we have a closed loop. I believe that there is a level on which science and religious metaphor are mutually compatible.”[16]

    – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Langan#Intellectual_pursuits

    He follows in the tradition of Theistic rationalism: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theistic_rationalism

    He is in good and esteemed company:

    Historian Gregg L. Frazer argues that the leading Founders (Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Wilson, Morris, Madison, Hamilton, and Washington) were neither Christians nor Deists, but rather supporters of a hybrid “theistic rationalism”.[23]

    Yeah, he could have said "theory of evolution", but the theory of evolution is just another metaphysical construct. The God of the theory of evolution is called Chance.

    Let's get scientific! The theory of evolution is not and cannot be a scientific theory. It is a form of speculation about historical events that we cannot ever observe. I'm fine with that. I use the theory of evolution every day of my life to explain things. Wouldn't have it any differently.

    But get down off your high horse about what it is. It is a metaphysical speculation, not a fact. Therefore, if the author wishes to invoke a divine plan, why can't you be charitable enough to except his metaphor.

    Note: Karl Popper refers to the theory of evolution as a "metaphysical research project".

  2. Commentator has a lot to say about marriage, but seems to have gotten all his knowledge of females from work, ie non-sexual relationships. Putting up with women in this day and age, when options are available, takes the patience of a saint. I’m still hanging in there–barely.

    The problem is that you are reading WAY too much Return of Kings. The issue is that SOME women, just like SOME men, have issues when it comes to relationship development and maintenance..

  4. The comment overlooks that female intelligence and aptitudes work extremely well and yield the most benefit to our species on the micro scale of man-woman mated/nuclear family, but not on the macro scale of society-wide/global, as female wonts focused upon forcing the macro scale to hew to the practices and customs of the female on the micro scale have been destructive of the micro scale’s superior yield of benefits and have inhibited beneficial advances on the macro scale (to wit: transfer of the onus of child rearing from the mated pair to the state/institutional corporatism).

    There is, of course, the exception of the ultra-patriarchal societies (veiling, arranged marriage, cousin marriage, verbal divorce by males, immolation of undesired wives, &c.) which negate the benefit of female intelligence and aptitude even on the micro/mated-man-&-woman scale, and this is in large part why, until the mid-1960′s, Western Civilization/Christendom, with its focus on mated/nuclear family micro-scale benefits while macro-scale affairs were conducted overwhelmingly by males, enjoyed ever-increasing living standards and scientific/social/economic advances while ultra-patriarchal societies languished, and continue to languish, in backwardness that includes Malthusian runaway fertility.

    All of the above I submit not as exclusive, but to stimulate argument.

    We just had a discussion on this very topic over in the other thread, and I posited that exactly the opposite is true, namely that greater female emancipation/influence/power has yielded tremendous macro scale benefits to the World, that might not be entirely obvious to everyone quite yet:

    Firstly, feminism and female emancipation is the most potent tool and weapon we have at our disposal to fight against the grave threat of overpopulation: http://www.unz.com/isteve/imf-sub-saharan-africa-wont-economically-grow-its-way-out-of-its-overpopulation-crisis/#comment-1835140

    We won’t be nine billion: Jørgen Randers at TEDxMaastricht

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73X8R9NrX3w


    Secondly, I believe that female emancipation and feminism are highly eugenic and pacifying:

    It is still being selected for, but the how exactly is important and difficult to figure out. This is just speculation on my part so far, but I suspect and my research has led me to believe, that with greater emancipation of women selection for intelligence rather than aggressiveness, etc. actually increases. This could be another explanation for the Flynn Effect; greater emancipation and protection of women, which enables them to select their mates by traits they prefer and like, like intelligence and agreeableness rather than aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior. So the less chauvinistic/“macho” a race or culture is the more likely it is to select for intelligence and low(er) testosterone, i.e., lower aggressiveness, and against the “warrior gene,” i.e., psychopathy.

    Women like men to make them laugh for example; I think this has an evolutionary reason, because it is an easy way for women to test/detect intelligence, and also it is beneficial for one’s health and well-being if one is less often stressed/afraid and more happy, which is not the case if one is married to a violent psychopath for example, whom one cannot divorce, etc. Watch the video of Christopher Hitchens in my linked comment; he, rightly in my opinion, states that women are on average not as funny/intelligent as men, but that does not mean that they don’t have a sense of humor, i.e., they can, maybe even better than men, recognize and appreciate humor/intelligence/eccentricity

    women seem to be far superior judges of intelligence than men:
    This is interesting in itself. I never claim to be able to judge intelligence immediately, but these women seem to do so at better than chance level.

    It seems that very harsh and “Social Darwinist” environments and cultures do not necessarily select for intelligence exclusively, or maybe not even predominately, but that they mostly select for risk taking, aggressiveness, ruthlessness, i.e., psychopathic and rather anti-social traits. This has wide-ranging implications and consequences for our World

    My dear FKA Max, good luck with that feminism/eugenic improvement schtick, because its consequence on the macro scale is women subscribing against their own safety to "WELCOME REFUGEES!" from ultra-patriarchal societies, which is socially, politically and economically destabilizing to stable, high-trust societies, and which yields avoidable internal conflict which the stable society male mates selected for "agreeableness" are not equipped to withstand against the "aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior" of the incoming Third World.

    Your program's consequence of feminizing the macro scale results in today's horror of Sweden as the Rape Capital of Europe, Germany's Silvester Night in Cologne and other German cities, France's Nice truck attack and Bataclan, and the UK's Rotherham Third World sex slavery of Western women.

    Do the women of ultra-patriarchal societies needlessly imported into the West stand a chance? Do German women? Swedish women? British girls?

    Your feelgood theory is lovely - and it works, but only in high-trust Western societies populated overwhelmingly by Westerners, as upon contact with the rest of the real world it collapses.

    Michigan: More confirmation that refugee resettlement is an industry

    https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/tag/catholic-charities/

    I don't think Peter Sutherland and George Soros are women either, but I could be wrong.

    Appointed in January 2006, he has been responsible for the creation of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD).[2] He is President of the International Catholic Migration Commission, as well as member of the Migration Advisory Board of the International Organisation for Migration.

    Sutherland has previously served as Attorney General of Ireland (1981–84), European Commissioner responsible for Competition Policy (1985–89); Founding Director-General of The World Trade Organisation,[3]formerly GATT (1993–95), and former Chairman of Goldman Sachs International (1995–2015).

    The ``Refugees Welcome'' and ``open borders'' agenda is driven by globalist capitalists (Davos Men), who are aided and abetted by the Catholic Church, etc., not by ordinary women.


    The “Latino” Oligarchy, as is often the case with Mercantile elites, is short-sighted and profit oriented. Their alliance with the Church has put in place a system that pays no heed to genetic inheritance. When the Catholic Church is in power in Latin America, whether the stronger ecclesiastical current of time is on the Right or Left, the arc of history will always lead to a country (even one as white as Argentina) that looks like Brazil or the Dominican Republic, with all of the politico-economic problems that entails.

    Trump is actually more low-testosterone than many realize:

    Together, finasteride and a closely related compound dutasteride (sold under the brand name Avodart) are a class of drugs called 5-alpha-reductase-inhibitors (5-ARIs) which work by blocking the conversion of testosterone to its more potent form, dihydrotestosterone.

    My dear FKA Max, good luck with that feminism/eugenic improvement schtick, because its consequence on the macro scale is women subscribing against their own safety to "WELCOME REFUGEES!" from ultra-patriarchal societies, which is socially, politically and economically destabilizing to stable, high-trust societies, and which yields avoidable internal conflict which the stable society male mates selected for "agreeableness" are not equipped to withstand against the "aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior" of the incoming Third World.

    Your program's consequence of feminizing the macro scale results in today's horror of Sweden as the Rape Capital of Europe, Germany's Silvester Night in Cologne and other German cities, France's Nice truck attack and Bataclan, and the UK's Rotherham Third World sex slavery of Western women.

    Do the women of ultra-patriarchal societies needlessly imported into the West stand a chance? Do German women? Swedish women? British girls?

    Your feelgood theory is lovely - and it works, but only in high-trust Western societies populated overwhelmingly by Westerners, as upon contact with the rest of the real world it collapses.

    "Is the Pope a woman?"

    My dear FKA Max: no, he's not a woman, yet he may as well be. I call him Pope Eloi I, because he's shown absolutely no concern, and not even the slightest mindfulness, that his exhortations to the West to admit massive Third World migration has lethal consequences for the societies, economies, politics, citizens, and stability of (what's now left of what used to be) Western Civilization, and also has the grim consequence of destabilizing various parts of the rest of the world.

    You also overlook the flipside of this: why aren't Globali$t $ellout E$tabli$hment Big Shots, such as the Pope, George $oro$, Angela Merkel and the Koch brothers, calling for massive Western migration to China, Africa, South Asia, or for massive African and Moslem migration to China? - wouldn't those migrations form a boon to your pie-in-the-sky female-eugenic theory?

    Again, your female/eugenic improvement program works in theory, and only to a very limited extent only in stable Western societies - and then only when women work their peculiar magic on the micro nuclear family scale but not the macro scale, yet when your theory collides with the real world it folds like a house of cards. What's more, Pope Eloi I and his ilk are not helping your feelgood utopian theory. In fact, they're working powerfully against it, and are proving it deadly, sorrowfully mistaken and misbegotten. In fact, the links and videos in your last comment prove my point by demonstrating real world obliteration of your theory's baselessly presumed benefits.

    Then you went off on two extraneous tacks: first about Orientals-Occidentals testosterone metabolization; second, interjecting speculation about "the potential side effects" of a drug which President Trump may - or may not - be taking. What has any of this to do with your theory that female influence on the macro scale is somehow universally beneficial to all mankind?

    When it comes to President Trump, I - and many others who voted for him based on his stay-out-of-Syria, America First campaign positions - worry more about Ivanka's sorry influence on the macro scale: to wit, her apparent persuasion of the President to launch a missile strike against the head of a country with which the United States has no, absolutely no, strategic involvement or conflict - the head of a country who'd kept his nation stable and its minorities protected until his sectarian foes "aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior" tore it apart and flung it into horrific bloody massively lethal chaos. Shouldn't Ivanka's peculiar female beneficence on the macro scale have instead worked to persuade the President to strike, not the force in Syria for stability and protection of minorities, but the force whose "aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior" hurled Syria into unspeakable havoc? Why did Ivanka's marvel of female benefit make the blazingly obviously wrong choice on the macro scale?

    Does Donald Trump have low testosterone? What his very low PSA tells us
    https://drjengunter.wordpress.com/2016/08/18/does-donald-trump-have-low-testosterone-what-his-very-low-psa-tells-us/

    I brought up this example to refute your earlier point, that only ``manly'' men could protect Western Civilization. Trump has many, many flaws, no doubt about it, but because of his lower testosterone levels and his other attributes ( for the connection of IQ, testosterone, etc. to genius see details here: http://www.unz.com/jthompson/isteve-metrics/#comment-1823832 ) he is Western Civilization's best chance at survival, in my opinion:

    which the stable society male mates selected for “agreeableness” are not equipped to withstand against the “aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior” of the incoming Third World.
     

    What will defeat “aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior of the incoming Third World” is not more “aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior” but more intelligence and common sense, and both men and women can make a contribution in this department. Case in point:

    On the macro level there is no one else I can think of, who has done more to inspire and keep Donald Trump in check than Ann Coulter, and last I checked she was a woman. The video in this comment of mine has been deleted since, but I think you can still find it on Youtube:


    …Ann Coulter, whom I believe to be a female genius…

    Ann Coulter is doing a great job of putting pressure on Trump, Bannon, et al.

    By the way, the ``Refugee Resettlement Watch'' website I linked to is run and edited by a woman as well.

    Also on Syria, refugees, etc. This, in my opinion, is the reason for the Civil War in Syria, again high testosterone plays a role:

    The Effects of ‘Youth Bulge’ on Civil Conflicts
    http://www.cfr.org/world/effects-youth-bulge-civil-conflicts/p13093


    Between 1970 and 1999, 80 percent of civil conflicts occurred in countries where 60 percent of the population or more were under the age of thirty, according to the PAI report.
    [...]
    In the Muslim world, experts say large populations of idle youth are especially prone to virulent strands of Islam as an alternative force for social mobility. Of the twenty-seven largest youth-bulge societies in the world, thirteen are Muslim, according to Heinsohn.
    [...]
    What are some policy prescriptions to combat youth bulge?
    Improve access to family planning measures. Improved reproductive health care and better access to family-planning measures, such as contraception programs, have proven effective in places like Iran, where births dropped from over six children per woman in 1979 to two per woman today. Better education programs for women can also help control the sizes of families and cause lower fertility rates.
     

    What’s more, Pope Eloi I and his ilk are not helping your feelgood utopian theory. In fact, they’re working powerfully against it, and are proving it deadly, sorrowfully mistaken and misbegotten. In fact, the links and videos in your last comment prove my point by demonstrating real world obliteration of your theory’s baselessly presumed benefits.
     
    This was exactly my point!!! Did you think from reading my comment, that I was supporting the Catholic Church et al., or thinking that they are helping??? Of course not!

    Do you think, I believe, that the Catholic Church is a friend of women and a great champion of women's emancipation??? Of course not. Exactly the opposite is true. Without the meddling and resistance of the men of the Catholic Church against birth control, etc. my `` feelgood utopian theory'' would be a much wider-spread reality already than it currently is.

    I think something got lost in translation here between us... it seems, that you completely misunderstood my earlier comment, or I completely misunderstood you?

    Anyway, here another female, who has made incredibly positive contributions on the macro scale:

    Melinda Gates: 'I'm a Catholic, but women need access to contraceptives'

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQzg8JUd6I8

    , @Daniel Chieh
    There's almost no evidence that macro power of women do anything sane at all.

    Nancy Ammon Jianakoplos & Alexandra Bernasek found that women are basically more risk averse in all situations, which ushered a sea change to constantly increase the size of government.

    And of course, young single women are almost 50% more likely to vote democratic and liberal reforms, supporting a higher income tax as well as more education and welfare spending. And divorced women with children are almost 75% more likely to vote Democrats.

    http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~iversen/PDFfiles/LottKenny.pdf

    Of course, on top of it, women basically lack much of a sense of an inground beyond their own sex.

    As noted in the study below "women appeared to be only relationally focused, shoiwng very low levels of collective attachment..."

    "Women were significantly more likely to trust an outgroup member who shared a potentially crossgroup relationship connection..in fact, for women, there was no significant difference in trust toward the ingroup member and the potential relationship target..Men trusted ingroup members significantly more than outgroup members regardless of cross-group relationship connections."

  16. Women are of course, different from men. In general (i.e. 95 percent or more of the time) women aged 28-52 or so have a choice men do not have: the women can squander the evolutionarily rare hormone mixes that make them feel they are the center of the world (the hormone mixes are there for the purpose of making the women think they, and by extension their children, are at the happy center of the world – children need to be around that kind of attitude, which mitigates the difficulty of growing up in a harsh world) on making low-stress workplaces more cooperative, thanks to their squandered hormone mixes (while other people watch their children). Of course men do not have that choice, the testosterone difference teaches men that they are dispensable, that the world is a hard place, and that defeat is not only possible but likely. These are not useful lessons in the typical comfortable workplace. Men have to work hard to adjust to cooperating in low-stress environments and that is why female managers are preferred in comfortable workplaces. On the other hand, in high-stress environments with external challenges – where the goal is not ‘cooperating for the sake of cooperating’ or ‘making everybody feel good’ but is ‘avoiding devastating failure’ – who would not prefer to have high-testosterone people at one’s side?

    When it comes to President Trump, I - and many others who voted for him based on his stay-out-of-Syria, America First campaign positions - worry more about Ivanka's sorry influence on the macro scale: to wit, her apparent persuasion of the President to launch a missile strike against the head of a country with which the United States has no, absolutely no, strategic involvement or conflict - the head of a country who'd kept his nation stable and its minorities protected until his sectarian foes "aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior" tore it apart and flung it into horrific bloody massively lethal chaos. Shouldn't Ivanka's peculiar female beneficence on the macro scale have instead worked to persuade the President to strike, not the force in Syria for stability and protection of minorities, but the force whose "aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior" hurled Syria into unspeakable havoc? Why did Ivanka's marvel of female benefit make the blazingly obviously wrong choice on the macro scale?

    Does Donald Trump have low testosterone? What his very low PSA tells us

    https://drjengunter.wordpress.com/2016/08/18/does-donald-trump-have-low-testosterone-what-his-very-low-psa-tells-us/

    I brought up this example to refute your earlier point, that only “manly” men could protect Western Civilization. Trump has many, many flaws, no doubt about it, but because of his lower testosterone levels and his other attributes ( for the connection of IQ, testosterone, etc. to genius see details here: http://www.unz.com/jthompson/isteve-metrics/#comment-1823832 ) he is Western Civilization’s best chance at survival, in my opinion:

    which the stable society male mates selected for “agreeableness” are not equipped to withstand against the “aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior” of the incoming Third World.

    What will defeat “aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior of the incoming Third World” is not more “aggressiveness and violence/anti-social behavior” but more intelligence and common sense, and both men and women can make a contribution in this department. Case in point:

    On the macro level there is no one else I can think of, who has done more to inspire and keep Donald Trump in check than Ann Coulter, and last I checked she was a woman. The video in this comment of mine has been deleted since, but I think you can still find it on Youtube:

    …Ann Coulter, whom I believe to be a female genius…

    Not being Donald Trump, but especially not being Steve Bannon fanboys is the key to Make America truly Great Again… in my humble opinion.

    Ann Coulter is doing a great job of putting pressure on Trump, Bannon, et al.

    By the way, the “Refugee Resettlement Watch” website I linked to is run and edited by a woman as well.

    Also on Syria, refugees, etc. This, in my opinion, is the reason for the Civil War in Syria, again high testosterone plays a role:

    The Effects of ‘Youth Bulge’ on Civil Conflicts

    http://www.cfr.org/world/effects-youth-bulge-civil-conflicts/p13093

    Between 1970 and 1999, 80 percent of civil conflicts occurred in countries where 60 percent of the population or more were under the age of thirty, according to the PAI report.
    [...]
    In the Muslim world, experts say large populations of idle youth are especially prone to virulent strands of Islam as an alternative force for social mobility. Of the twenty-seven largest youth-bulge societies in the world, thirteen are Muslim, according to Heinsohn.
    [...]
    What are some policy prescriptions to combat youth bulge?
    Improve access to family planning measures. Improved reproductive health care and better access to family-planning measures, such as contraception programs, have proven effective in places like Iran, where births dropped from over six children per woman in 1979 to two per woman today. Better education programs for women can also help control the sizes of families and cause lower fertility rates.

    What’s more, Pope Eloi I and his ilk are not helping your feelgood utopian theory. In fact, they’re working powerfully against it, and are proving it deadly, sorrowfully mistaken and misbegotten. In fact, the links and videos in your last comment prove my point by demonstrating real world obliteration of your theory’s baselessly presumed benefits.

    This was exactly my point!!! Did you think from reading my comment, that I was supporting the Catholic Church et al., or thinking that they are helping??? Of course not!

    Do you think, I believe, that the Catholic Church is a friend of women and a great champion of women’s emancipation??? Of course not. Exactly the opposite is true. Without the meddling and resistance of the men of the Catholic Church against birth control, etc. my “ feelgood utopian theory” would be a much wider-spread reality already than it currently is.

    I think something got lost in translation here between us… it seems, that you completely misunderstood my earlier comment, or I completely misunderstood you?

    Anyway, here another female, who has made incredibly positive contributions on the macro scale:

    To be fair; I am probably one of the very, very few Trump supporters who think and know that his below-average testosterone level is a very, very good thing:

    Well, What Do You Know? Donald Trump's Testosterone Level Is Below Average
    For a guy whose fans are obsessed with "Cuckservatives," this is not great news.

    Your testosterone is 441, which is actually (hesitates, nods) it’s good. (audience laughs, applauds)

    Trump’s “alt-right” fans have an odd fixation with testosterone levels, which is why it’s ironic that while Trump’s level is within the “healthy” range, it is below the average level of 679, and even below the norm for his age, which is 524.

    I thought I had actually already answered that question in my previous comment... but it seems that he/she did not read between the lines:

    Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, who broke up in 2008 when their religious differences caused them to split. [...] Trump later converted to Judaism, and the couple married in 2009.
     
    Israel and Assad don't like each other. Jared and his family like Israel. Ivanka likes Jared. Donald likes Ivanka.

    Ivanka manipulating Donald Trump into bombing Assad/Syria has nothing to do with her being a female, and everything to do with her and her husband being Jewish, and Jared's family being big supporters of the State of Israel.

    For Kushner, Israel Policy May Be Shaped by the Personal

    "Is the Pope a woman?"

    My dear FKA Max: no, he's not a woman, yet he may as well be. I call him Pope Eloi I, because he's shown absolutely no concern, and not even the slightest mindfulness, that his exhortations to the West to admit massive Third World migration has lethal consequences for the societies, economies, politics, citizens, and stability of (what's now left of what used to be) Western Civilization, and also has the grim consequence of destabilizing various parts of the rest of the world.

    You also overlook the flipside of this: why aren't Globali$t $ellout E$tabli$hment Big Shots, such as the Pope, George $oro$, Angela Merkel and the Koch brothers, calling for massive Western migration to China, Africa, South Asia, or for massive African and Moslem migration to China? - wouldn't those migrations form a boon to your pie-in-the-sky female-eugenic theory?

    Again, your female/eugenic improvement program works in theory, and only to a very limited extent only in stable Western societies - and then only when women work their peculiar magic on the micro nuclear family scale but not the macro scale, yet when your theory collides with the real world it folds like a house of cards. What's more, Pope Eloi I and his ilk are not helping your feelgood utopian theory. In fact, they're working powerfully against it, and are proving it deadly, sorrowfully mistaken and misbegotten. In fact, the links and videos in your last comment prove my point by demonstrating real world obliteration of your theory's baselessly presumed benefits.

Why did Ivanka's marvel of female benefit make the blazingly obviously wrong choice on the macro scale?

    There’s almost no evidence that macro power of women do anything sane at all.

    Nancy Ammon Jianakoplos & Alexandra Bernasek found that women are basically more risk averse in all situations, which ushered a sea change to constantly increase the size of government.

    And of course, young single women are almost 50% more likely to vote democratic and liberal reforms, supporting a higher income tax as well as more education and welfare spending. And divorced women with children are almost 75% more likely to vote Democrats.

    http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~iversen/PDFfiles/LottKenny.pdf

    Of course, on top of it, women basically lack much of a sense of an inground beyond their own sex.

    As noted in the study below “women appeared to be only relationally focused, shoiwng very low levels of collective attachment…”

    “Women were significantly more likely to trust an outgroup member who shared a potentially crossgroup relationship connection..in fact, for women, there was no significant difference in trust toward the ingroup member and the potential relationship target..Men trusted ingroup members significantly more than outgroup members regardless of cross-group relationship connections.”

    Commentator has a lot to say about marriage, but seems to have gotten all his knowledge of females from work, ie non-sexual relationships. Putting up with women in this day and age, when options are available, takes the patience of a saint. I'm still hanging in there--barely.

    “Putting up with women in this day and age, when options are available, takes the patience of a saint. I’m still hanging in there–barely.”

    The problem is that you are reading WAY too much Return of Kings. The issue is that SOME women, just like SOME men, have issues when it comes to relationship development and maintenance..
