Via bakadesuyo.com (H/T Roissy) comes a very, very interesting post from Psychology Today (yes, the place where Satoshi Kanazawa used to blog before being busted for having good taste in women).
Read the whole thing, but let me stress the important points:
• When men watch wrongdoers getting punished, there is activation in reward centers of their brains, whereas women’s brains show activation in pain centers, suggesting that they feel empathy for suffering even when it is deserve (Tania Singer and collaborators).
• Women are more likely to factor personal cost into decisions about whether to punish an unfair stranger, which suggests that women are more context-sensitive, and men adhere to principles (Catherine Eckel and Philip Grossman).
• Women were twice as generous in a game that involved dividing $10 with a stranger (Eckel and Grossman, again).
Ok read this carefully and tell me how it is not obvious that women should not be allowed to vote or be voted. Women do not belong in political society. Period.
Hey for you Christians, its in the Bible:
As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church. (NIV, 1 Corinthians 14:33-35)
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. (NIV, 1 Timothy 2:11-12)
Now I think this must be held as one of the standard tenets of any reactionary theory. Women don’t mess in politics. No exceptions.
Disclosure: I am soon to be married to a great girl whom I love deeply. She also tends to ask me how to dress herself, what to cook and where to go out. +2 too.
Meanwhile Islam was busy suiciding: Saudis just gave women the right to vote. Good luck with that.
