I am however accusing you of either being senile or an idiot.
I don't get the point of this thread.
Apparently women are smarter than men because only men are here whining and trying to make a big deal out of the statement.

If president Obama said "Men are smarter than women.", would you feel the same way?
yes, i still wouldn't care
We know throughout history, women have been treated as second class citizens in most cultures.
Even today, many men oppress women in many ways - even here in the US.
The oppression of women stems largely from men’s desire for power and control. The same need which, throughout history, has driven men to try to conquer and subjugate other groups or nations, and to oppress other classes or groups in their own society, drives them to dominate and oppress women. Since men feel the need to gain as much power and control as they can, they steal away power and control from women. They deny women the right to make decisions so that they can make them for them, leave women unable to direct their own lives so that they can direct their lives for them. Ultimately, they’re trying to increase their sense of significance and status, in an effort to offset the discontent and sense of lack created by humania.
provide evidence/proof it's hogwash
In the US: Women still earn .88c to men's $1.00. Men makes health care decisions for women through politics that takes away women's right to their own control.
Not to mention that even if this were true (which it is NOT) this is not a legal right Setanta, you moron.
In fact, in the United States there is a law that was signed in 1963 by JFK that SPECIFICALLY prohibits wage discrimination based on gender. You can read about this law right here:
So again Setanta, even if men were being paid more for equal work (which they are NOT), that would not be a legal right that they are entitled to. What it would be is discrimination on the employer's part. A discrimination that would be punishable under U.S. law. You know, the U.S. law that PROTECTS women from wage discrimination.
Not to mention, you're like WAY older than me and you've never heard of the equal pay act???
I wasn't even alive then and I've heard of it!
So what we've established (besides that you're a douchebag/idiot, Setanta) is that not only do men NOT have a "legal right" to make more money than women do, but conversely women have the SAME EXACT opportunities to make as much money as men do!
But the thing is that women CHOOSE (of their own free will) to work less hours than men do, and to go into lower paying career fields.
How many women do you know of that study to become an engineer for example?
But feminists sure love to spin this into women being payed less. But they only seem to bitch about there not being as many women in high prestige jobs such as CEOs. They never bitch about there being less female coal miners or oil workers then males. Because feminists don't want to do these hard labor jobs! Even though they're more than welcome to! Even though these jobs pay well!
And let's think about it like this:
So in our capitalist society, if a company can save 23 cents on the dollar by hiring more women, it's still somehow more important to have a lot of penis around. Penises being around is THAT important.
In our society which has deemed it AGAINST THE LAW to discriminate based on gender, all these companies are willing to knowingly throw caution to the wind just to have more penises around! It's worth facing fines and/or whatever other penalties just to have more penises around!
Men makes health care decisions for women through politics that takes away women's right to their own control.
The oppression of women stems largely from .......
is that how logic works were you come from, you make an assumption and then try to explain why the assumed condition might happen?
