Men are the stronger sex
In this day and age of feminists in the West clamoring for minimum quotas of women in office and upper management it is relevant to ask whether this would really serve society and whether women have the capacities needed for leadership.
It is well known that men are physically stronger. Feminists have had their go at explaining this away with a number of rationalizations, but none of them worked because of the obviousness of the fact. So now it is being ignored as irrelevant. Women these days don’t need strong men, because they have lesbians in the police force protecting them from male oppression and sexual harassment. Or so they think.
However, less clear is the fact that men are also intellectually dominant. Clear proof of this statement can be found in the chess world. I’m very familiar with that sport, having been an avid tournament player for years, president of one of Hollands leading chess clubs and member of the board of the Dutch Chess Federation.
Chess is a clearly intellectual sport. It requires brainpower, energy and good health. A chessplayer can use as much energy during a 6 hour ‘game’ as a soccerplayer can use in a 90 minute match. However, no physical strength is required, so it is a very reasonable testing ground for intellectual prowess.
And the fact of the matter is: men totally dominate chess.
In chess strength is expressed in Elo rating. You gain Elo points when you win, you lose them when you lose.
The best chess player in the world at this point is Magnus Carlsen, who has an Elo rating of 2826. Elite players have an elo rating of 2700 plus.
The best female player in the world is Judith Polgar, who at this point has an elo rating of around 2680. She is the only female player in the Top 100. Her sister is Susan Polgar, who was at some point Woman World Champion. She never crossed the 2600 threshhold though. In fact, besides Judith there is only one woman who ever managed to get a 2600+ elo rating.
But Judith is an anomoly, because she was raised by a Hungarian psychologist who published a book before she was born entitled ‘How to create a Genius’. And that is what he set out to do. He succeeded with her, but the fact of the matter is, he was unlucky to have only daughters. Had his son been Vishy Anand, Magnus Carlsen or Vladimir Kramnik, they would probably have ended up with a 3000 elo rating.
Of course there are strong women and a strong woman will beat a weak man. But a strong man will always beat every strong woman.
The few women that have the capacity and will to work at (near) top level should be able to do so.
But the fact of the matter is, that very few women can really compete with men.
Nature has its paradoxical ways of asymmetric justice. Yin and Yang are opposing forces. Yin is the water that erodes the toughest rock. Women give birth to men and women alike. They nurture their offspring, literally. Women have been fooled to dismiss this invaluable contribution as unworthy. It is the strangest of things.
Both men and women have their role to play in this world. The way feminists try to usurp the male role is not based in fact and pathetic. To have second rate women lead first rate men is a disgrace and unacceptable to real men. Which explains to a high extent the ever larger number of young men dropping out of school and employment.
Let men be the head of the household and women its heart. That is a reasonable and truthful way of organizing ourselves as a species.
