Men are tougher than women. Perhaps I should say men are likely tougher than women since the research simply leans towards that view. Regardless, it seems feminists don’t like this view and argue for a belief that men and women do not have any innate biological qualities, i.e. gender differences. Instead they argue that any differences we see are actually a result of society and our education. So, to them, men and women can simply be changed with education because their gender identity is learned. I want to present some evidence I have accrued that does not reflect this view at all.
Have a look at this (somewhat older) video with Gavin McInnes in it arguing for gender differences against 3 pseudo-academics and a possibly gay man all at once.
I like Gavin McInnes, his fame and notoriety are growing in the media for speaking the truth and he hasn’t changed his message or issued any apologies.
To begin with, the female professor of law argues that toughness, aggression, and success are all wrongly linked to maleness. Taking her at her word, that means she believes men are educated by society to be these things, it’s the old “patriarchy theory”, and that women could just as well be tough and aggressive. This is where science disagrees. This article points to a gene that only men have that is linked to differences in reaction to stress. Men have more of a fight-or-flight response to stress than women. The male response seems to be regulated by hormones influenced genetically via the SRY gene.
Also, male facial shape appears to be buttressed against punches. Violence and men go back a long time and this shows up in their biology. Men also are larger, stronger, and have more testosterone. Testosterone is linked with aggression. Not only this but men are 70% of the victims of homicide. If aggression was simply something that was taught, why wouldn’t men and women be targeted equally by men? Instead men primarily seem to target other men suggesting a possible link to reproductive strategies. Further, this quote:
Also important in this regard are the findings of social psychologists who have noted that the social emancipation of women in recent decades has barely influenced or enhanced the expressiveness of aggressive behavior in women, which is additional proof that the higher degree of masculine aggressiveness is, first of all, due to genetic factors.
(Both the homicide statistic and the quote taken from here.) In other words, being encouraged to act like men, women do not appear to be committing violence as much as men.
Men and women also have language use differences according to this research paper. Men use more direct language. Direct language would seem to be an important part of successful negotiation therefore perhaps lending credibility to the idea that success in areas of business is indeed a male thing, contrary to what the female professor said.
One thing to keep in mind is that violence is not necessarily a bad thing but the professors seem to believe it is always a bad thing.
I also want to address this bogus idea that Gavin was policing what masculinity is. Gavin argues for what masculinity is based on biological grounds and then a professor disagrees by accusing him of trying to police what masculinity is. So these feminists argue that insecure patriarchal males are bullying and policing masculinity and that defining masculinity is bad, then they themselves try to define and police what masculinity is. At no point did anyone actually refute Gavin, they just accused him of things.
The professors also say Gavin is afraid and weak and insecure because he thinks masculinity is biological. If anything, I suspect the professors are insecure with the concreteness of a biological definition. Whether they realise it or not, they are saying that there are no gender differences because any perceived difference is actually a result of education. So where is the evidence this is true apart from a nice theory?
There is some very strong evidence that the “education” theory of gender differences is false. Although it is long, the article from Wikipedia explains the story of a man whose penis was destroyed at a young age and his parents were convinced by a psychologist that to resolve this issue, they could simply raise him as a girl and things would turn out fine. The brainwashing did not work out and the man did not identify as a woman in his life, he later committed suicide. Researching such a thing on a large scale would be highly unethical but this I suspect contains more evidence that gender is not learned.
The gender education theorists do not have any scientific proof of their theory. We are slaves to our biology, and this is a good thing. Leftists believe societal norms can be divorced from, separate to biology so that the two have nothing to do with each other. That professor, Mary Anne, says what’s wrong with masculinity is insisting it is one particular way, biological. Yet she herself can only insist it is not biological. Even by arguing that men could and should if they wish become house husbands, she is arguing that masculinity is not biological but fluid. I imagine this view will continue to be pushed in western education for a while to come and I think it has had pernicious effect on society.
Recently, Gavin was seen in this video telling a woman she would be happier at home.
There is another interesting video of Gavin McInnes I dug up where he is debating a social justice warrior. It is about an hour if you have the time.
