Warren Farrell - The Myth of Male Power
that is three hours long. care to summarize?
Not really, just thought it was an interesting video to share. There is a breakdown of the contents if you take it to youtube and read the description.
Well okay, I will a little, but I doubt most people will read this or watch the video:
An amusing statement around was around 2:10:00 'Historically, women as victim attracts men. Men as victim repulses women. You see this acted out every day when a women's tire goes flat. When a man's tire goes flat, women don't stop to help him. Historically when women dropped handkerchiefs men picked them up. When men dropped handkerchiefs they picked it up.'
There are lots of good facts and viewpoints in the discussion particularly regarding financial sophistication, psychological bias and community property gender bias in the eyes of law. This includes the female standard of self defense with the 12 'female-only' defenses in murder trials. Including an example where 'PMS' was used to wave a life long murder sentence to out patient help.
The author also wraps this up into the increasing isolated male social model and commitment phobia in western society that is a major concern for all people if you have an interest in the happiness of both males and females.
