Should women rule the world?

Humans have existed on this planet for approximately 5000 years and since the beginning men have asserted themselves as the dominant species, with women being held back as so-called secondary citizens. History is littered with wars, corruption, greed and poverty, all of this coming under male rule. There has never been a point in time when there is no war going on anywhere in the world. Today, there are far too many instances of cruelty and suffering whilst wealthy people simply become more wealthy. Basically, men have made quite a mess of it. Would the world be a far better place if it was dominated by women?
Incredible as it may seem, before the 20th century, women were given very little opportunities in anything. Men closed the door on them in just about every field. Do you agree that men have been grossly unfair in imposing wide-ranging restrictions on women in the past?
Yes
No
Consider this: women were not allowed to vote in the USA until 1869 (and this was only in the state of Wyoming; it wasn't until 1920 that every state had complied). Women couldn't vote in the UK until 1918 (and even then it was only allowed for women over 30). In Australia it was 1901, in Finland it was 1905, in the Netherlands it was 1919 and in Norway and Denmark it was 1913. Do you think this is clear proof of how women were held back in the past?
Yes
No
Even though progress finally began for women in the last century, it was still difficult for them to make any kind of headway. Prior to the 1980's, there were very few female surgeons, female politicians, female pilots, female astronauts etc. Do you think that men continued to hold women back as long as possible?
Yes
No
Even in sports, there were few opportunities for women. In tennis, the Wimbledon men's singles championship began in 1877, but the women's singles championship did not come about until 1968. And in that year the prize for the men's winner, which was Rod Laver, was 2000 GBP, whereas the prize for the women's winner, which was Billie Jean King, was 750 GBP. Do you agree that in the past women have been held back in sports too?
Yes
No
Governments in western countries have been run by white middle-aged men for as long as any of us can remember (with very few exceptions). These governments bicker amongst each other and compete for power, and once they have power they continue competing to keep it. And nothing ever changes. Men seem completely incapable of solving the world's problems. Are you satisfied with current political systems?
Yes
No
Historically, governments that have been overthrown in bloody revolutions were replaced with another only for there to be no significant improvements. Similarly, in democratic countries in which a new government is voted in, the same problems that existed before go on and on. In the UK, every successive government promises to improve the National Health Service but they never do. There are other rogue countries which are ruled by dictators or warlords (all male). Do you think that this is an indication that male rule doesn't work?
Yes
No
Men's testosterone-driven instincts make them aggressive and competitive by nature. Bear in mind that the vast majority of violence and crime is committed by males. Do you think they have the right temperament to govern?
Yes
No
It is generally agreed that women are more caring, nurturing and understanding. There is also a widely-held view that women are more intelligent, more perceptive, more sensible and more practical. Do you think that women have the right temperament to govern?
Yes
No
It is only in the last 20-30 years that women have been making real progress as more opportunities open up for them, and they are excelling. Females are performing better than males in every level of education and more females than males are graduating from university. There are more female managers and business owners than ever before, and more and more top jobs are going to women. Do you agree that women will continue to advance and the gap between them and men will widen?
Yes
No
With more economic power, women are gaining more freedom and independence. They no longer have to rely on men and limit themselves to just getting married and having babies. Women have more choices available to them and are becoming the major earners. Do you agree that finally women's role as the true masters is being established?
Yes
No
Politics and big business have largely been run by "boy's clubs", which have been extremely difficult for women to penetrate. Even when they do enter these fields, women have found it difficult to make changes because they are in a system that has been created by men, for men and is run by men. However, slowly but surely women are gaining more control and showing that they can do a better job. There have been many polls which have shown that both men and women prefer having a female manager. A female manager is being viewed as more competent, more approachable, more efficient and more intuitive. Would you prefer to have a female manager?
Yes
No
A man's ego and psyche are known to be extremely fragile, which makes it difficult for them to accept that women are superior. A man's instinct will likely prompt him to be abusive and dismissive when presented with this fact. He will likely blurt out something like "What have women ever invented?" But of course his point is utterly irrelevant because up until the latter part of the last century women had very few opportunities to show their ability in any field. Do you agree that a man's ego makes it difficult for him to step aside and let women take over?
Yes
No
When boys are growing up they play with toy guns and action figures. They then proceed to violent video games and violent movies such as "The Terminator", "Reservoir Dogs" and "The Expendables". With these influences, it's no surprise that boys develop aggressive and competitive instincts. Of course, girls can play violent video games and watch these same violent movies. Yet they don't develop the same instincts. Nor do they grow up to commit violence and crime (at least nowhere near as much as men). Do you think that this indicates that males are more primitive and immature than females?
Yes
No
If a government was run entirely by women do you agree that they would focus more on health, education and welfare and less on funding the military and invading other countries like men do?
Yes
No
Do you agree that the world would be a better place if women were in charge of everything; that Presidents and Prime Ministers were female, businesses were run mainly by women, that women were the major property owners and women are accepted as being the head of households.
Yes
No
To sum up, do you agree that women are far superior in both mind and body?
Yes
No
What is your gender?
Female
Male
