*The War of the Sexes*

by on April 18, 2012 at 3:02 pm in Books | Permalink

By Paul Seabright, Amazon link here, it arrived yesterday on my doorstep and is due out April 29.  The subtitle is How Conflict and Cooperation Have Shaped Men and Women from Prehistory to the Present.

Paul is a splendid writer and thinker, and of course this is a topic of importance.

Yes, but there will never be a final victor in the War of the Sexes because there is too much fraternizing with the enemy.

This was funny and made my day.

I first heard it attributed to Henry Kissinger in the 1970s, but now I think it’s older than that.

Women will win. As Jack Nicholson said. “they’re smarter, they’re stronger and they don’t play fair.”

But you really don’t need to. Other women will do it for you. for instance if a woman asks you if she looks good in something, any response other than,”i don’t really know but i guess the other women will let you know” will get you done for.

Then why is it taking so long to win? And what does “win” mean?

Haven’t they already? Young, single, college-educated women out-earn their male peers, yet women are still politically favored with figures like Obama pointing to the 70 cents on the dollar canard as evidence of patriarchal oppression.

He also said of women, “I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability.”

He only said that because a script written by Mark Andrus told him to.

That said, it’s a damn funny line.

it’s funny ’cause it’s true.

By winning they destroy the culture, and thereby lose.

14 AB April 18, 2012 at 11:00 pm

The polloi would do that, wouldn’t they?

Kissinger FTW!

This book release might explain Mr Seabright’s absence from the comments section of many blogs over the last 6 months or so. For awhile there he was chiming in pretty regularly.
