    im probably repeating what everyone else has said, but i dont care

    on average
    men are physically stronger
    men are better at hiding their thoughts/feelings (though i think this is because of differences in upbringing)
    women are better at expressing their thoughts (see above)
    women are better at thinking about more then one thing at a time
    men are better at thinking about one thing at a time
    women's voices are better at soothing a baby
    men can drink more alcohol and not get as drunk

    thats all i can think of

    I think it has been established several times that Greeks had no monopoly on sexism.

    Of course that quote depicts a certain attitude toward women; but it primarily is about Fortune. And Niccolo Macchiavelli was yet another hideous coward.

    Only with seniority.

    Get out of thinking that in the same office a man and a woman employed in like things are payed differently.
    John and Jane, hired on the same day to do the same things get payed the same way. Nuff said.
    If his check is higher, he's been there longer.

    Of course they do, but its all shot to shit at the site of fresh cherries.

    True, but Blue's right.

    Fraggle we aren't birds, or even close to them.
    If you look at chimps, gorrilas etc, males are the dominant sex, females get by in the world by being nice to the dominant male who, if the females are successful at sucking up, will protect them from other males.
    That seems to be the deal with the whole region of the evolutionary tree that we reside in. And it's evidenced blatantly in human society anyway and most human societies through history so I don't understand what the confusion is over. Women have always been second class citizens, thats how this species is wired.
    Things are changing now, but thats got nothing to do with instinct, and in fact its not changing as smoothly as it would if we didn't have instincts struggling against the change.
