For most men and women the headline graphic simply illustrates the difference between men’s and women’s brains… but from the scientists view – it’s a little more complex…

Women have better global thinking abilities…

The female brain is more diffuse and utilizes significant portions of both hemispheres for a variety of tasks.  Women naturally see everyday things from a broader, “big-picture” vantage point.  Women are better equipped to divide their attention among multiple activities.  Women look at the holistic view and handle multiple issues with their whole brain (both hemispheres) more readily. 

Men have better focused thinking abilities…

The male brain is highly specialized, using specific parts of one hemisphere or the other to accomplish specific tasks. Men are able to focus on narrow issues and block out unrelated information and distractions. Men can narrowly focus their brains on specific tasks or activities for long periods of time without tiring. Men are able to separate information, stimulus, emotions relationships etc. into separate compartments in their brains. Men see individual issues with various parts of their brain. 

I Would Get the Women Out Of The Foxholes And Into The Captain’s Chairs

This post addresses the growing presence of women in work and service positions that traditionally have favored males.  Women’s interest in these positions not only has been motivated by financial benefits but gender equality issues as well.   Typically these include Construction,  Firefighters,  Combat,  and  Law Enforcement.  There are those right wingers who believe the higher the percentage of women in these physical risk services, the higher the risk of injury and death to themselves, their fellow workers and those they are assigned to protect. Now don’t hit me, ladies!  I tend to agree with that notion.  However, before I’m locked into a stockade and browbeaten by thousands of 1960s bra burners, this post will demonstrate that an increase in elected and appointed women bosses and decision makers in government and business will, across the board, improve social, political, economic and environmental conditions never before realized.  This includes dramatic decreases in military conflicts, street crimes and accidents, thereby reducing the risk of injury and death.

Then there is what seems to be a reasonable viewpoint of simply making every job and responsibility gender natural.  As long as the individual can meet the minimum mental and physical standard qualifications to perform the routine responsibilities of that work, he / she may be considered for the position.

In addition, those doing the hiring must consider the ability of the individual to handle unknown and unforeseen occurrences and emergencies. These rarely occur but may require minimum strength and running ability above and beyond those required for the basic standard skills responsibilities of the job. 

If we can assume that the average lifting strength and running speed of the average male is greater than the average female and the decision maker has to choose between a group of  men and women who already met the minimum standards of strength and speed,  doesn’t  it make sense to choose the men for the job based on this assumption?

Now, to secure the total amount of physical strength and dexterity to kill people, save lives, protect our citizens from street crime and put out fires, it would appear to assign the body of the male humanoid animal to these tasks.  Don’t feel bad, ladies.   It’s very much like assigning the strongest available Mule, Ox or Horse to drag the plow.  Of course that’s not saying much for men, is it?

Now that we got the women out of the foxhole and the men back into the mud, what do we do with the women?  Good news, ladies.  No longer will you get dirt under your nails. You’re now going to occupy the Captain’s Chair but don’t kid yourselves.   We men are still in charge.  Your first order from us men is as follows: 

“From now on you women are in charge and are to tell us men what we can and can’t do. So There! You will sit in your captain’s chair and be in charge. WHY?  BECAUSE WE SAY SO! “  “Don’t worry. You’ll still remain hug-able and squeezable.”
