Is this humourous talk, Bruce examines some truths… Men have been running the show for 6 million years. Women are more emotional than men.
We can all agree that men are physically stronger than women. Has that set the template for inter-gender relationships more than anything else? Men are from Mars women are from Venus. The education system of the Industrial revolution trained intellects and created generations of intellectually overbuilt and emotionally underdeveloped men. However, Genetics tells us we are identical. Very smart people can do very dumb things. When emotions are combined with the intellect in the right way, at the right time, in the right amount we create intelligence and meaning. Is the real question, can men learn something from women?

to all of those saying 'men invented everything' there are reasons for that :
1. women are pre occupied with children so have less time on their hands
2. for a long time in history women were not given opportunities such as not being allowed to vote ect so they weren't given a chance or say in society
3. its only been some decades since women have more rights so women getting better is going to be a gradual process to undo societies previous restrictions so thats why there hasn't been much change yet
4. there are women who have discovered things too like Rosalind franklin discovery has contributed to the discovery of dna
intelligence doesn't have a gender and the ones who are less intelligent are quick to think they are more intelligent than a lot of people this is simply a fact
non of the men in these comments have discovered or invented anything and yet feel the need to comment on this video how men are better than women because men are the inventors
Mr.Coffin Gaard3N yes but being a genius is a minority and i wasn't saying that most women are just average i just meant that there isn't much variation in iqs that go to the extremes that would skew the results
Mr.Coffin Gaard3N ok but a few points doesn't really make much difference in a large population and the average iq is only higher because of those geniuses mens average iq scores can vary from very low to very high while women have less variation of iqs so majority are average rather than really low or really high but men have more outliers which makes the average higher so even though there are more geniuses in men which makes the average higher there are also more really unintelligent men more than there are very unintelligent women because they have a bigger range of iqs if you get what i mean so iq is more complex than just an average
@Raa16 Women aren't as good as soldiers since men are biologically stronger, however they can be just as good commanders, since that's related more to intelegence than to physical strength. I also don't think women would have "conquered" the new world, since they aren't as violent as men, I think they would find more pacific ways to interact with the new countries that didn't envolve violence.
Imagine women fighting in WWII and in the Civil War? You know those were caused by men in power right? So those probably wouldn't have happened. Also, lots of women did fight in WWII, there were lots of groups that rebelled against the nazis and helped defeat them, there were women in those group that were extremely important like Nancy Wake.
I won't comment on the Civil War since I'm not American and uneducated on the matter.
"All civilisations that empowered women failed"
Just look at countries nowadays. The countries with gender equality are doing much better than the ones that only empower men.
I don't want a society that only cares about women. A want a society where men and women are both empowered and treated equally. I want a society that combines men's strength (since they are proven to be incredibly strong, doing much better in sports) and women's brains (since women on average are slightly more intelligent, do better in college/schools, have higher EQ and their IQ average is also rising way faster than the male one since the liberation.)
I want a society where women and men work together. Because, let's be real, if oppression never happened, society would be much more developed. Just imagine what things could have been different and much better we would all be if our ancestors didn't oppress and kill others.
@Mafalda Araujo Women aren't even net contributors now. The average woman receives more from the government than they put in through taxes over the course of their lifetime.
In general, women simply are not as good as men as soldiers, commanders, protectors of borders, or law enforcement.
"Women could have build, protected and maintened a society as well." That is so unrealistic. Just imagine women conquering the new world, fighting the civil war, and fighting in the trenches of WWI. Imagine female stone masons, knights, conquistadors, etc. There is a reason why the Greek Amazons(or any other civilization that empowered women) were eventually conquered and wiped out. There is a reason none of them made it. Why don't you learn from that reason instead of just repeating the same mistakes?
@Raa16 also, the whole men vs women in an island thing. Those aren't women, those are priveleged bitches who never to do anything by themselves, as a woman, I'm ashamed of them. I, a teenager, could get a group with my friends and do better than those girls they clearly know nothing about basic survival skills
When women wanted to join the work force, men had to invent "Human Resources" just to give women the ability to do something because men already had everything under control. Ask your selves one question, since we basically invented something we did not need to help women feel involved in business, do you enjoy how well your "Human Resources" operates? Does your Human Resources magically work when no other mostly women based made up need for operation of a business flow smoothly?
Serious enquiries. I will watch and try to determine whether valid peer reviewed scientific evidences are given and if I miss one please comment for me. (I mean it genuinely, as I might miss some because of subjectivity). Also please inform me also on methodology used to determine intellect of men and women.
@ambellina miles Debate it..than
Why are you even going for some history book... Btw even in history books women were portrayed as wimps. Men are warriors by nature, they fight for their country, protect it to keep their Women and children safe...Men have a huge contribution to this society,
why can't you just accept it and appreciate the sacrifice that men did & still do ? ..THIS EGO will lead you to nowhere.~
if man truly real man will be imprisoned more look at it my invent vehicle man invent eyeglass we invent truck bus by car house play aircraft rocket screen monitor camera even the TV that you're on so why don't give credit where credit is due
@ambellina miles No, I am not against girls. You just don't understand how important the mothers role is/was. Imagine starting civilization over again and you are part of a tribe with several other tribes around you. Your tribe empowers women and as consequence the fertility rate goes down and you have a smaller amount of kids every generation. Infant survival rate is 50%, combine that with no medical knowledge, unforgiving winters, famine, droughts, plagues, territory disputes, etc. Now while your tribe is either shrinking or barely replacing itself in population every generation, imagine other tribes around you that do not empower women and are multiplying every generation. They are expanding and conquering. Are you starting to see the situation there? Eventually whats going to happen to your tribe?
@Raa16 stoupid. if you even manged to read a history book you would also know that women were not aloud to do all the stuff men could do. if we did have the chance the world would be a much better place
Most men are stronger than women and all men and women are smart in their own ways. Many men usually have less common sense and women have more. It's really more complex than you think, but it's mostly men who are more advantageous in many ways physically, mentally, and smart wise.😗😗
Men are smarter and stronger, woman however are more emotional and creative! Plus maybe a tiny bit more of common sense. I would rather that then strength and intelligence. I do not believe we are the same, but neither of us is "better" it can depend on the person. We need each other! if woman were the same emotion and creativity wouldn't exist. And if men didn't exist then we wouldn't be able to protect our self! We are all better at different things! Treat each other with equality and don't be sexist to EITHER gender! We are not the same, we are better at different things!
Women need men. Men can get by okay without women.
Men are better than women on average. For every one trait women have that exceeds men, there are 5 other ones men have that exceed women.
"We are all better at different things! Treat each other with equality and don't be sexist to EITHER gender! " Are you familiar with 1st wave feminism? Because that kind of talk is exactly what led to our current problems.
@Mercuria 2 The point of my comment is to show how untenable and how death ensuing that choice is.
You cannot legislate equality for men and women. You would have to give unfair advantages to women while also placing more responsibility on men for that to possibly happen which will result in death.
Women, happy? Come on
You can entirely rework society for the sole purpose of benefiting women, they will still be unhappy. They will even resent and hate the men giving them all these gifts, and vote for immigrants and even enemy’s into the country to replace the men.
@Mercuria 2 Yes, women are fine in traditional patriarchal societies where the negative aspects of their nature is checked. Western women would be fine again if traditional western patriarchy was restored. That however provides no invalidation about my claims regarding human nature.
Raa16 never heard of those instincts being ‘biological’. They are more to do with the woman’s background, parental figures and culture etc. The idea of women needing to be protected is not engrained wholly in DNA.
@Michel Hebou Women have biological instincts to be protected and provided for. That is what the left offers in the form of the welfare state and the police state. They also have misplaced motherly instincts that drive them to help immigrants. If needed I can provide evidence for this.
You know, Muslims didn't flood into Sweden because the men suddenly started feeling large compassion for people 100-500 miles away.
My own reasons why men are more physically and intellectually superior than women.
1. Mens' discoveries and inventions dwarved those of womens'
(Men have more convenient inventions than women but women have also too.)
2. Men are better than most sports and mind sports, examples are: Chess, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Football, etc.
3. Men are more recognizable for being the best at some genre like at math or science. Examples: Albert Einstein, Aristotle, Galileo Galilei, etc.
These are my reasons why men are better intellectually and physically.
Feel free to reply
@Epic Rants "why would you general a society that's based specification of the individual" Yeah and it worked before, for people responsible for themselves. Women are dependent on men and men are responsible for women.
"each person plays a certain role" Only mens taxes matter. Women receive more from the government than they ever put in through taxes over the course of their lifetime.
"its difficult to assess all of them at once and frankly futile" Muslims are doing it right now and its working for them.
"it's true in general but when looked at in more specific situations it's not" That doesn't invalidate the rule. You cannot build or maintain society on a fraction of women that are a small minority of the population.
" i think if you found men or women who are physically and mentally prepared for such scenarios you would find that they both succeeded in surviving" That is called cherry picking and you think it supports your position when it does not.
This concept:Some women can compete and succeed as much as men
Doesn't prove this concept: Women are equal and just as important as men.
@Raa16 why would you general a society that's based specification of the individual, each person plays a certain role, its difficult to assess all of them at once and frankly futile, it's like that paygap argument, yes it's true in general but when looked at in more specific situations it's not, I dont think most people in general are fit to survive on a deserted island, i think if you found men or women who are physically and mentally prepared for such scenarios you would find that they both succeeded in surviving
@Raa16 the real question is, what are you smoking? have you not heard all the things women have done? men have done more important things because back then girls did not have the chance to, and we would be running the world having you pathetic people knelling at are feet. so i suggest you shut that little mouth of yours and DONT open it again. thank you
Of all qualities to give women to make it seem like they are equal to men, you decide on rationality and intuition? What are you smoking? Do you want to be shown some of the countless studies that come to the conclusion that men are more rational than women?
The Best Of Cartoons Don’t bother. Women are a lost cause. They key to saving society is red pilling men.
A janitor helps and compliments a CEO however the janitor is not equal to the CEO nor does the janitor deserve the same privileges the CEO has earned. Women understand this when it comes to business, but when its the sexes, they really trip up.
@The Best Of Cartoons Men build buildings, but women are much better at communication and advancing human interractions and cooperation. Do you think men created everything in the old times? When archeologists discover some ancient pots or primitive ceramics, do u think it was men who created it? Since women were in charge of cooking and fire in general? Not to mention healing powers of herbs, looms, grain-grinders, knives, food preserving technology, tannig methods, btw women hunted too, not only men, but it was predominantly a male thing.
Women contributed tremendously to the technology through the early Neolithic.
@Gabriel Tejada I do think some woman in the past liked the stay at home lifestyle, but what I'm trying to say is, don't compare men and women. It's possible the interests of many men (not all) are different to the interests of many woman (Not all), but I don't think it's possible to judge which gender is superior since one can't rely without the other. I also don't understand when you say "they often cannot handle the responsibility that comes with the authority they're given," can you please provide an example?
Bob Ross if you’re referring to women in general then it may surprise you that lots of women in the past before feminism didn’t find it boring in fact they were MUCH happier compared to the women of today’s world since modern women have proven that they often cannot handle the responsibility that comes with the authority they’re given (I say given because most women don’t earn these positions since feminism just hands it over to them like nothing).
Hardcore feminists are just blinded by their crazy conceptions and beliefs. But honestly, would you want to stay at home all day? That would get boring. Just let people do whatever they want as long as they're aren't blowing up buildings or something
@Trinity Livingston good to see someone who's not wasting time to find an answer . But I think men and women both have different abilities .Men have the ability to start from nothing and create huge empires . But women have good communication skills and ability to solve disputes . I think men's rational thinking can become aggressive and lead to wars , also women's abilities should be used . Women should be given more opportunities in governance . But again women need to show interest in these issues bcoz no is going to handover the power straight into their hands . Both men and women need to change .
Girls develop language skills earlier than boys, as well as interpersonal skills. This gives them great advantage in reading and articulation as well as group discussions, essentially learning parrot fashion and using memory, thus getting good grades. Boys at school tend to work more independantly (if not, they're more disruptive) This has nothing to do with intelligence, or actually understanding a subject. I noticed when I was at college on an access to science course too that boys grades were typically higher than girls, despite there being less boys, and that girls seemed largely clueless when asked to give explainations. I think by this age boys language and cognitive skills are fully developed, and they are able to articulate what they are thinking more. This is obvious when you ask the question: are we the same? No we are definately not. Boys and girls certainly learn differently, always have always will its not a bad thing and it needs to be acknowedged by the education system
@vedrusa Well look at Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome they were not only Patriarchal but very hard Patriarchy, read about the indo-europeans the ancestors of modern Europeans were a warlike Patriarchal race.
vedrusa hun you really don’t know what trolling is do you? I’ve seen bad trolls that would probably walk circles around you despite not being good at trolling. Just do yourself a favor and call it quits 😉
Of course it's not, but if we're talking about communication skills a man is designed to be superior in that regard even way before when we were in caverns, hunting in collective requires a really good co-ordination
Women are not better at communication lmao, that is the biggest blatant lie I've heard, in terms of social interaction yes! But in terms of coordination and collective unit THEY'RE NOT, Women are more social than men, but indeed in sports that require a good mindset and communcation skills like for example soccer you'll a see a massive difference between men and women lol, teams like the best female soccer team (USA) got beaten by a bunch of u17 boys 7-0.
@vedrusa Mens history is more lengthy, diverse and complex than womens, which is why its so hard for people to describe and put men into a nutshell so to speak. So we simply nowadays choose to focus on mens bad points and ignore the rest. Example being men had to do reckless things to discover new things. Womens history is fairly recent so thats why its easier to forgive women of any bad things they may do, and see them striving to acheive as a good thing. Intelligence is nothing different in the genders, but curiousity and bravery is, which men seemed to have more of in the past
water bucket no just men, the women are just there to take the credit from the men that put their lives on the line for the greater good of our species which also unfortunately includes delusional folks like you.
Want to know who is smarter, just look at STEM fields. Women have had their educational freedom for over 30 years, yet they STILL account for less than 20% of STEM jobs, and what's more is that they aren't even enrolling in the courses for these fields as they only account for 35% of STEM undergrads even though they get more degrees than men.
@Jerome Truitt its natures fault, we are motivated by our urges, biology wants women to be teachers, nurses or models. It has nothing to do with intelligence. Same thing as with heroes. Men act like heroes usually only around women and it works cuz it increases their attractiveness. Female heroes dont increase their attractiveness.
Honestly seems like the comments section is filled with overly emotional men who are upset that anyone would think women and men are equally intelligent. This is exactly what the speaker was pointing out.
@ThatSadFrogMemeakaPepeTheFrog why do people have to show evidence when u not going to believe the evidence anyway?? Why not look it up yourself. And if u say u don't have too, that proves u don't want to know the truth about men or women is smarter
@vedrusa it's not really fair to compare the intelligence of a man that is the same height as a women because men are genetically taller. For a fair comparison, you'll need to find a man who is a bit taller than the women.
vedrusa no you aren’t smarter than men and you never will be no matter how many times feminists tries to cover it up while forcing people into spreading misinformation on the economics and reproductive dynamics on humanity and civilizations.
So let me tell u smth the physical strength of men is the factor that shutted down women's intelligence if men nd women were physically equivalent than We'd do the same things
We were created to work together nd in harmony not to fight who's smarter nd who's better if u shut ur emotions u'll be an intellectual half inelegant nd if u shut ur intellect u'll become more emotional half inelegant so thru all these years we've been growing half inetelegant apart science proved that women r stronger medically than men We r equal
Lmao.. As per my experience with both man and woman in collage.. I've realised that (I'm being fair). Women are naive in comparison to men in general. A man can cause damage to a women not just physically, but psychological too.. I think in many instances man are wayy superior or women... ALSO the reasoning capabilities of a man can outmatch women...
from my understanding men have a wider distribution in the IQ spectrum. Men follow the extremes where the top and bottom 1% are mostly men. Women are more average. This is great for our species as the alpha male usually spreads more of his genes. If it wasn't for this distribution our species would of never been able to move forward and evolve the way it is now.
Why can’t the world go back to the way it was where men and women actually worked together? Men and women are good at different things so they are smart in different ways. They are both like pieces of a puzzle.
Why are you so eager to compete with men ?? Anyways. You will lose no matter what you do. You can't dominate male orientated fields where men are WAYY better..
Be it _ Science, maths, engineering, biology or philosophy.
To say that the education system is designed for boys is one of the worst jokes I have heard recently. Girls are more successful at school. Schools do not allow for physical release (more critical in boys), are not built for nonverbal communication, do not learn through doing, increase the weight of homework more and more (boys are more successful on tests, and girls in homework - on average). Etc. etc.
@The REAL Exposing the Joy of Satan yeah, there are more geniuses and idiots among men. That doesnt mean all men are smarter :) Many female geniuses were actually denied credit for their work in the past. Female artists were not supported. Women in the past were considered only good for childbearing. Also, 5 points is not that much, if it were 20 points, that would be a huge difference. And remember that female iq has risen up fast and continues to rise since the liberation. I think we are more similar than different.
@TrPpc 379 WHITE PEOPLE/EUROPEANS DID NOT START ALL THE WARS, MEN BUILT AND ACHIEVED GREATNESS AND EVERYONE ELSE TRIES TO COME INTO THEIR CIVILIZATIONS AND TAKE IT! FACT, READ UP ON HISTORY, SPECIFICALLY EUROPEAN HISTORY WHERE EVERYONE CONSTANTLY TRIED TO COME INTO ANCIENT ROME AND ANCIENT GREECE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEIR TECHNOLOGICAL SUPERIORITY, THE GREEKS AND ROMANS GOT ATTACKED ALL THE TIME!
Who also started all the wars,where thry killed hundreds of thousands of people land,conflicts in the actual world and created all social norms who don't allow anyone besides white straight men to be themselves?
@Perfectly Mad So both genders are capable because if you think men are smarter because they are born that way then you would have to explain what makes then smarter than women genetically. So what that being said our environment with genetics shapes our intellect.
@Perfectly Mad Its common sense societal expectation and rearing of men to dominate is the difference between why you see more men doing this than women. It has nothing to do with genetics and women not having the capability to be just as smart. To be truthful if intelligence was solely based on genetics then women would hands down have the advantage and men who are very intelligent based on genetics should be thanking their mothers. So lesson learn being intelligent comes from your environment and your genetics.
Well, studies show that women are smarter. All studies about gender and intelligence como to the same conclusions, women are smarter than men and if it wasn't for the oppression that happened due to women being physically weaker, there would be many more women in STEM fields.
I'm not saying men aren't smart, men are obviously smart too.
Mary Cury is the proof women can be extremely intelligent and reach same goals reached by men. Just, luckily for our society we have different ways of thinking and of our brain working. I suggest you to read "A Room of One's Own" written by Virginia Woolf. It is enlightening and more complete than this short ted talk.
vedrusa yeah and guess what? competition is what helped built the society we all live in as well as the technologies we benefit from, competition exists for a reason and has a purpose whether you like it or not.
