"Women rarely commit murder, but forensic psychiatrist Sigrun Rossmanith has treated many female killers. She tells SPIEGEL ONLINE that women's dark side is underestimated."
"Men have issues too, though it's a perspective that is rarely mentioned in the debate over gender equality. Germany's family minister is holding a conference next week on challenges males face — including the work-family balance and lower life expectancy — next week in Berlin. Feminists are unlikely to be amused." —But isn't that always the case?
"WOMEN appear to have won a decisive victory in the battle of the sexes. Psychologists have found female IQ scores have risen above men's for the first time…. One possible explanation is that women's lives have become more demanding as they multitask between raising a family and doing a job. Another is that women have a slightly higher potential intelligence than men and are only now realising it." —Or maybe men are getting not as smart now. Maybe all those years of crushing beer cans against our skull and watching organized sports have made the thinky-splodge inside our headbone become dumbified. Only theory. Me no know for sure.[...]
Look, ladies, if scientist Stephen Hawking, whom we as a society have chosen to designate as the world's smartest man—the guy who literally wrote the book called The Theory of Everything—admits that even a person in possession of his vast intellectual capabilities and comprehension of the systems that make our world run cannot understand women, how do you expect someone of my much more modest intelligence to figure out why the hell you're crying? Get off my back.
Hey, fellas: Want to do sex to that special—or simply just available—lady in your life? Text her! "Nearly 40 percent of women say that social-networking media, such as text-messaging and Facebook, are causing them to jump into the sack faster with partners than they would have in the past, according to a poll by Men's Fitness and Shape magazines." Some clinical psychologist suggests that the false sense of intimacy texting provides will get you over the hump (heh), as the lady in question will think that "you've actually been together for a longer amount of time, so it's actually OK to have sex quicker. You may have gone [...]
Men beware: That special new lady who makes you feel like everything you do is amazing will eventually become the woman who changes everything about the way you dress because it sucks. How long is "eventually"? Six months. This would probably be more disturbing if men weren't secretly just as happy not to be making decisions about these things.
"If the ascent of women has been much exaggerated, so has the descent of men. Men’s irresponsibility and bad behavior is now a stock theme in popular culture. But there has always been a subset of men who engage in crude, coercive and exploitative behavior. What’s different today is that it’s harder for men to get away with such behavior in long-term relationships. Women no longer feel compelled to put up with it and the legal system no longer condones it. The result is that many guys who would have been obnoxious husbands, behaving badly behind closed doors, are now obnoxious singles, trumpeting their bad behavior on YouTube." —If [...]
Mars needs women: "Women will be among the first teams to take part in pioneering trips to Mars, experts have said. Any future missions to one of Mars' two moons are only likely to happen by 2033. And despite it being Neil Armstrong and his two male colleagues who first set foot on the Moon, some of the world's leading space experts believe that women could be on the first explorations to the 'red planet.'"
"The latest figures issued by the World Economic Forum are alarming. In the organization's 2010 Global Gender Gap Report, Italy ranks 74th among 134 countries, below Colombia and Venezuela. In no other European country do so few women work outside the home (only 44 percent), and those that do earn half as much as their male counterparts. They spend 21 hours a week doing domestic chores, longer than any other European woman. Only five percent of Italian men have ever operated a washing machine."
"Wives eyes light up when they see the closets. They smile and say they'll need more clothes to live here. Their husbands just shake their heads."
Do we have an actual estimate of the quantity that quantifies as "droves"? Is it 10? 50? 100? Anyway, it turns out that the dating scene in New York is so dire that "droves" of mature, professional women are forced to submit themselves to the indignities of commuter rail in order to find a man they can trick into marrying them.
"With her fulfilling managerial job and enviable 18th century cottage, 27-year-old Abigail Gavin has already achieved what many women in their late 20s aspire to. What Abigail doesn’t have is…" —Guess what Abigail doesn't have! GUESS!
"Women care about height and for many short men who are looking for a wife that means either settling for one who is less attractive or not finding one at all. There is a silver lining though: a short man who is able to establish himself economically could very well find that later in life he has a younger wife than his taller friends."
Science, answer this age-old mystery for me: Why are women less likely than men to have casual sex with a stranger?
The playing field isn’t level. Men, after all, can almost be guaranteed a pleasurable sexual encounter if they’re with someone they find attractive. But Conley points to new, yet-to-be published research by sociologist Elizabeth Armstrong which finds “women orgasm only 35 percent as often as men in first-time sexual encounters.” “Women’s perception that their heterosexual casual sex partners will be unlikely to give them pleasure is not unwarranted,” Conley states.
Tough times for todgers on Knifecrime Island: "The recession is diminishing the contents of British men's trousers in more ways than one, a sex survey suggests." (What they mean by "more ways than one" there is that not only do British men have less money in their pants, they are also having problems with the drooping dongs that dangle therein.) But it's not just the recession that is to blame for Albion's defective dicks; the ladies of the land are knob-obsessed, sex-starved harpies who are gagging for it and will slice it right off if they don't get it the way they want.
