Quote# 141424

If you read Ancient Rome and other civilizations literature, women tend to indirectly lead to the demise of civilizations. Not because they are bad leaders (actually they are great leaders, often too great), but due to their inherent nature to avoid conflict and appease everyone.

Yeah, that Queen Boudica was a real peace-lover.

Prove it. Oh wait, you can't. None of you can.
Oh well.

Which is why the Falklands are now back in Argentina's hands, because Maggie Thatcher avoided conflict. Oh wait...

Yeah, um, you might have to think again about that.

In fact, between 1480 and 1913, Europe’s queens were 27% more likely than its kings to wage war, according to a National Bureau of Economics working paper.

How could a leader be "too great"? I don't get that one...

You've been reading "I, Claudius" instead of history. Right?

FIRST: What everyone else said.

SECOND: What's wrong with settling conflicts peacefully with non-violence, diplomacy and compromise?

You just disproved your own point and inadvertently stated that the Feminine Way is superior.

But again, Boudicca and Thatcher don't strike me as "hippie" material and Hinduism's most powerful and nigh-invinceable Deities are Durga-Kalika....

....I wouldn't mess with her if I were you....especially Kalika (or Kaali).

Neville Chamberlain: 'Peace In Our Time', followed by his 'Piece of Paper' that was ultimately worth only wiping his arse on after he'd made a certain radio announcement in 1939.

Holy Paradoxes, Robin!

God forbid we avoid conflict. That would lead to nasty things like peace and friendship. Dreadful stuff if you ask me. /S

Ooohhh, you mean that in 100% of civilisations that had women in the population, all ended, right? Therefore women are responsible for the deaths of those civilisations. Do I need to point out the obvious?

The Roman Empire started going down the drain the moment christianity started to get some traction in its political system. It split soon after christianity became the official religion and the Western part collapsed just a few decades afterwards.
Rome survived just fine all these years, even with women having some semblance of power, but the moment christianity became prevalent, things went downhill. There might not be causation, but the correlation is certainly interesting.

So women are peace loving, great leaders & men are violent, warmongering rapists. Is this really the argument he wants to make for male supremacy?

@The Crimson Ghost & Doubting Thomas

I dunno; These guys are weird. I think some people find violence exciting and peace boring (because they're to stupid to ride a roller coaster or something).

Yeah right, you mean like the way Queen Cleopatra avoided conflict. There were other ancient women, such as Queen Artemisia of Halicarnassus.

OH, hang on...
