in all honesty I don't think we are equal were 2 genders for a reason we have different roles in our life and how we live it we are equal in our species but why do you think woman have the kids and not everyone has babies or can birth so were not equal but to a certain extent we are
Don't talk bout 'privlege' when millions are wondering where there next meals coming from. Those unfortunate enough to live in poverty are on the grind to change things rather than complain about that won't get you no where. Trying your best to overcome disadvantages in your life will get you further than a tweet bout it on Twitter. There's people better of and worse of than you and if this bothers you you're the only one that can change that. Might not be what you want to here but is very true
I remember when I was little, when my sisters would bring back As and Bs they would get so surprised and get excited as if my sisters weren’t supposed to. But when I bought back As and Bs they would just say, “ good job” then pass it back to me like I always get them like as a boy. Then one day when 2 of my sisters got into the advanced placement, they thought it was a joke, saying how most girls weren’t always in advanced placement, so they should do their best. That’s one of my worst memories and probably sexist ones back in childhood.
All my life I’ve heard that girls are smarter than boys! And in my class I’m smarter than most boys. But I’m not saying girls are smarter than boys. I believe that different people work at their own pace. And that their intelligence is based on their genetics and background. Isn’t it tiring when you hear that boys are better than girls or that boys are better than girls?
Why is everything gender based. It depends on the person not gender. Do you think a man that only watches tv and never studies is smarter than a woman who studies everyday and works super hard to get good grades? I don't think so.
being smart is different than having enough common sense. smart at using your brain or learning fast, or because you have go to school? i once picked up an Intel employee as a lyft driver. there was no front door you can park like hotel , but there was street waiting area right in front, looks like a bus stop. a lot of people waiting there too, so naturaly some waiting for bus and some waiting for rideshare. so i parked there 5 minutes, on my phone im at pick up location, rider didnt share her location. she called me and said she was in parking lot, i told her i been there, plus the building is surrounded by sections of parking lot, which one. so i drove in circle, pass through parking garage, then i saw her. wow i drove 360 around the building. why she didnt look on her phone see i was just 30 feet near by. doesnt she every see many people waiting in 1 area and think humm that might be a hot spot for drivers, why not wait there, you can also see my location on your phone. common sense should kicks in, thought she should be way smarter than me but lacking common sense and work your surroundings.
Duhduhduh boys brains are bigger than girls... oh... now boys are taller than girls... I'm the tallest in my class! One of the tallest! I'm taller than most 5th graders! And also I have a lesson to teach you boys that bully girls to get them to like you... if you bully a girl then they will hate you more.
It depends. You can't just say that one party is better than the other because some men are pretty stupid and some women are pretty dumb as well. What matters is how you use your brain for the better. I don't care if men are smarter than women or women are smarter than men. All I want is a great life in a peaceful planet we call earth.
Too late for that.
Iam still waiting for the moment, where the old generation is dead and the new are now adults. Reading the comments shows that Most people think female and male are equal. But i think that people who doesnt think so, dont click on this Video so... iam still waiting
game women have Periodes becouse they can get pregnant. This is Biology. Men are stronger becouse they have more muscels to protect the female and kids in stone age. This is Biology. But the muscels and the fact that women can habe Babys dont effect the Brain. So you ganz argue with this points
Zlatan Ibrahimovic men do have more brain matter- but they have more muscle to process and control. Lots of people look at brain anatomy and think they know what it means- but it’s way more complex than that. And well- okay not to be stereotypical here...but I have an Asian friend...and Asians as a whole just seem to be better at math. They have a great mathematical brain. I’ve known many intelligent Asian women too.
Like a little girl for example was crazy amazing at math. Better than all the older white boys in my Youth Group.
If you have links- I’d love to see the whole...school system hating on boys thing. Because if that’s true I shouldn’t ignore it. I know that now-a-days the left is controlling the schools opinion and well- we know how biased THEY can be.
I don’t have a lot of experience of men putting down women within organic relationships. But on YouTube and other places on the internet where they feel they can be safe- the expose their true disgusting feelings.
Not to mention- it’s very easy for boys to feel emasculated if a woman is better at anything than them. There’s a FEW articles I’ve read that have shown they do prefer to date stupid girls over intelligent and prefer ones that aren’t that dominant. (But I’d take those with a grain of salt.)
But I’d seriously recommend treating people as individuals because my aunt and uncles and mother have tested IQ’s on a literal genius level. So- like. I betcha my mom is way smarter than any typical man.
Other thing is I have two sisters. One has a really high EQ (which is emotional intelligence) and thinks a lot with her feelings. I can see why guys would find that stupid. I personally don’t do that. I try to stay rooted in logic most all the time. But I also have to admire her for her real intelligence that is born out of her EQ. It’s harder to appreciate but I’d be lying when I say it’s less important than IQ.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic you’re right. Feminism is failing boys. But the other thing to consider is that women do feel oppressed in Asian countries. Specifically still China.
But his “points” where not rooted in fact. I’d recommend looking up videos done by psychologists because he mostly focused on brain anatomy which isn’t ALWAYS as telling as you may think. And I feel like you should care if he’s sexist or not because then he’ll ignore other basic facts that support women. It’s just common sense not to read or trust a biased source.
Regarding your earlier reply:
The average IQ for women is growing, but so is the mens. We take Japan as an example again (convenient and I hear we're some of the smartest people) the average IQ for women was around 99. Average for men was around 104. The numbers are the average of the results of an IQ test done on approximately 2000 men and women. Link will be added here later.
The average IQ belonged to the highest women for the longest time, not currently. Now why have you left out the fact the other 9 out of the 10 people with the highest IQs are men?
About Albert Einstein, also false. According to Wikipedia: "regions involved in speech and language are smaller, while regions involved with numerical and spatial processing are larger". Then there's the fact there's tons of articles published that proves Einsteins brain in particular wasn't even that special to begin with. If you study hard and effective enough, most people can be almost, if not just as or even smarter than Einstein was. And no, it wasn't "abnormally small". Neither was it more similar to the anatomy of the average brain of a female, than that of the average male.
As for the density argument. Now let's say women do infact have more dense brains, this does not prove the mass of the average womans brain is greater or even equal to that of the average man. I could say Men have more brain mass and counter you argument. Men, generally, also have more gray matter which is what drives intellectual performance. This argument about the brains could go on and on so I'll leave it here. Feel free to bring it up again.
How are women often getting put down by their male counter parts? In detail.
More males commit suicide than females doesn't prove men are mentally weaker. The finger can be pointed at a lot of things. We have a higher chance of going through more traumatic events. From going out to war to being bullied, the chances are higher for a boy/man than it is for a girl/woman. A woman can be crying homeless no one is going to tell her to man up. The way society is functioning for now, there is much more sympathy towards women than for men. This is easily one of the dumbest things I've read from a feminist till date.
There is countless evidence that suggests the education system (in the west) favors women. "It's shown everywhere"? Yes like how the overwhelming majority of chess grand masters, programmers, leaders and scientists are men. Like how almost everything in your house was invented by a man:)

I never said he wasn't sexist. He could be a Nazi for all I care, he is still making valid points. I only sent that video hoping this argument would be shortened as much as possible anyways. We can still "discuss" some of his points though.
"Where women are excelling men always say "oh well. People are just making it that way so women feel better about themselves"" false. It's been proven that America's education system heavily favors women. Take Japan for example (where I went to middle school) not once did I hear boys were smarter or dumber or better in any way, nor was it ever implied. All our parents and teachers do is encourage everyone to study as hard as they can. As there's this mentality that studying more = better job in the future, hence drastically increasing the pressure on students and what we end up with? Higher rate of suicide. In this environment, the math prodigies and tournament winners are almost all male. Language related subjects and topics, e.g essay contests, English tournaments, mostly had female winners though. Anyway, we compare that with America for example where there's countless organizations, speeches from the famous, and so on encouraging girls exclusively; it's no wonder your boys are failing and society in general is falling apart. Me as a (wannabe) pragrammer, the first site I looked at was code.org. First thing at the top of the page is a section solely for girls. To deny that the education system in the west isn't made to give girls an edge is foolish even for a feminist.
It's possible for a woman to be smarter than a man, but the male gender is smarter than the female. No excuses here, only facts and common sense.
Again, the "biased jerk" still gave valid points and facts. I still disliked his video though, as like you say he was quite sexist at times, but I agreed with him for the most part nonetheless.
That depends on the person....................
I don't care who's smart and who's not, if somebody is unsure on something, then help them, not bring them down like saying "You're so dumb, you're not gunna get a job" or smth like that
Being left-brain dominant, boys think in terms of causes and effects, results and outcomes. Girls tend, being right-brain dominant, to explore the immediate environment and harmonize with it. This is not about being smarter or dumber; it is about habitual focus of attention. See my video on this topic, The Gender War . . . https://youtu.be/ZEHBzlBkSbA . . . in which I declare that women are catching up cognitively with left-brain thinking. Personally, one major social problem is that the legalist syastem is a left-brain-male-domination system rather than a problem-solving system that includes right-brain-dominant individuals as full participants.
I know boys who are dumber than girls... but also seen girls who are dumber than boys! But it's not just general knowledge it's specific subjects that they enjoy and love.
For example, my friend who is a boy is good at drama and isn't that good at maths and all that but I suck at drama but I excel in maths.
So it depends on who you are.
Also a have a few friends who are mainly girls and we are good and bad at lots of different things and the boys are normal dumber because at our school they just focus on getting a girlfriend and playing fortnite... so yeah.
+Game Seriously again? I know who you are...You are that four knocks guy...Both your accounts got terminated because you were mean in the comment section...So you make another name just so you can roast some more??
Hi yall. Apple Bloom here. And lets remember not to kill eachother over other opinions. Its amazing that we all have different opinions on stuff. :D Even me! Like my big Sister Apple Jack hates it when ponies like me love to fart. I love to fart because its funny. :D Apple Jack thinks its stupid to enjoy it but i think its awsome! <3 :)
+game smh. Wtf is wrong with somebody wanting for women and men to be equal? I know we aren't equal. Im just saying that I hope one day we will be equal. And just so you know, that's my opinion. Also, if you think men are better because they are stronger, faster, and smarter then think again cause they weren't born like that. They had to work. Like women do too🤦
the first part where you mentioned girls being better in language what you mean they are better liers and better at being coniving with words and this is no woman hating there have been studies that show woman are better liers
How are there more girls than boys in gifted programs in America? Maybe it’s just in my school district, but in all of my gifted class seminars have a lot more boys than girls in them. I would know. Last year, i was the only girl in 2 of my seminars classes.
+Zlatan Ibrahimovic there are other reasons too. The way they tackle their problems for example. How to end school shooting: ban guns. The shooter could just come with a knife then. How we solve it: stop bullying. Many reasons why the west is falling.
girls are kinda smarted than boys on iceland sometimes boys want to know thinks so they want to learn more so they be smart sso the awsner is who is smarter on iceland is = girls / becus they want to make their parents proud
