Are you a woman who studies moral philosophy?

I have yet to find a woman who actually has an interest in ethics and I find this to be a huge problem.

Do not get me wrong because I have seen women in Dr Katz work but I have not yet talked to any in the years that I have had an interest in it. My memory is poor so please forgive me if i have forgotten about you "if you exist.

If women do have a less interest than men, then this complicates our situation even more so because I think that the majority of children look up to their mothers.

@ossobuco,
That is a bit sad because I have found much of what you share to be intellectual. I find great value in ethics and I hope that one day you might as well.

I think that if women had an interest then we would see a big change in things. The only thing I can say is not to believe me and to understand that even your own mind will get it wrong as well but we have to start somewhere.

@reasoning logic,
I like reading about real life ethics stuff. Ethics has always mattered.

Philosophy blather drives me nuts.

Women are a bit of a paradox.

They spend less time on boards like this arguing about God, yet their church activity (at least in faiths that don't advocate patriarchy) seems to be higher than ours.

@Kolyo,
u r women, and women are men
so it is not a paradoxe

there is no existence possible but through individuality, the notion of self freedom out of all existing things

when ur condition of being existing is man gender then urself is a woman first unless u try to get out from there

that is why u know how u enjoy rantin for nothing, u r using some stupid skill to think objectively just to have fun in watchin urself still doing nothing, like women as a gender life, enjoyin nothing to see but herself gettin to feel superior, n the more u do nothing the more superior sense is present really

while women genders beings are individually the men who really mean to score objectively so clearly evolve and keep tryin different ways for successful results, that is how women are known to b more intelligent in schools bc free men first, and later are the professionnal ones that everyone trust for the true successs of their skills reality

nothing exist but truth

that is why when things are forced, freedom out is first the opposite to the thing definition bc only truth exist so not any relative will

@reasoning logic,
Erherm Wink Just kidding.

I think it's important to teach your children (not that I have any, well fosterish) ethics or morals more so, however, it's just as important to allow people to be who they are and make the mistakes in life that they will make in hope that morals eventually win.

But, remember this is a different world than the days of our Grandmothers and their Mothers and how they instilled ethics/morals into their children as best as they could .

I found the last part of that article to have some weight but I do not think it is true in all cases but it probably in most

It is worth reiterating that the participants in these experiments were business students. Previous studies have suggested business majors have higher levels of self-interest and lower ethical standards than their peers; it’s not certain such a decisive gender divide would be found in the population as a whole. Then again, business students generally go into, well, business, making them the people we tend to negotiate with
