Small Excerpt: Emory professor Melvin Konner’s Women In The End
In Females In The End: Sex, Evolution, and also the Finish of Male Supremacy (W.W. Norton), Melvin Konner, an Emory anthropologist and neuroscientist, argues society might find men and women in equal positions of power:
Unlike all received knowledge, women tend to be more logical and fewer emotional than men. Women do cry easier, which, too, is partially biological, although certain male politicians along with other prominent men appear in a position to deploy tears strategically in public places. But existence in the world isn’t threatened by women’s tears nor does that brimming salty fluid cause poverty, drain public coffers, ruin reputations, impose forced intimacies, slay children, torture helpless people, or reduce metropolitan areas to boulders. These disasters are actually man-made. They derive from men’s feelings, that are a continuing distraction for them.
