Male Power

Male Power Over Females Is Not the Default Social Dynamic in Primates

Guess what? We are primates. 

The study found that no particular pattern of intersexual power can confidently be attributed to the ancestors of many major groups of primates, and therefore an assumption of ancestral male-biased power is not warranted.

So much of what we think we know is based on what we want to be true. 

The reality is:

  • Women are not the weaker sex.
  • Women can fight just as well as men.
  • Women are just as intelligent as men.
  • Women are just as emotionally stable as men. 
  • Men are just as sympathetic as women.
  • Women are just as abusive as men. (This is often controversial but if you substitute whites for women and blacks for men, how would you view it?)
