Why are men disposable?



Log in to see fewer ads
I was on a local trail last week and came to a wooden bridge spanning a wash about 30' deep that was taped off due to some safety issue. Four ladies and a guy hiked up and were bummed that they had to turn back.

I said, "Howsabout you girls walk out there and see if it collapses? Me and him will follow you if it doesn't." They all laughed and one of them said, "You guys first; you're the men!" I responded, "Yeah, but what's all this I hear about equality? Let's all walk out together." The guy with them agreed with me. We all spent a few minutes joking about how men are generally tasked to risk life and limb to protect the womenfolk.

My wife frequently says " women can do anything a man can do". I respond " unless she can get a man to to do it instead" . She will only respond with a simple smirk. I win the argument as I get on with the unpleasant or undesirable task that she could do as good as Me.

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

This is a good book to read, and there are examples of exactly this sort of situation.

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus (1992) is a book written by American author and relationship counselor John Gray

Reminded me of the time a reporter asked an Iraqi woman. Why do you still Walk behind your Men you are liberated and free now.
The Iraqi woman said one word landmines.

Dad schooled me on that one. Ask them:

Did a crew of women build the house you live in?

Who laid the pipes and ran electricity to it?

Who produced the food in the refrigerator and trucked it to the store for you to buy?

Who shows up to crawl under the house when you call a plumber?

I believe that women can do anything that men normally do but in reality, they generally don't choose certain careers. Nothing wrong with that. I didn't choose to work in a field traditionally handled by women either.

It's purely evolutionary DNA tactics. One man can make women pregnant almost continuously, while having a child takes a set of genes out of circulation for a fairly significant chunk of time, especially when lives were generally much shorter than they are today.

Men are more easily replaced, and less valuable to genes; disposable - at least to a greater degree than women.

But women can multi-task. My butt! They also have that herd mentality - why the younger gen of men are pusses and socialism is on the rise. My rant over - carry on.

most if not all people will play a card like that until their balls/overies are on the line, and then everyone turns yellow.

then there is the "the tree of life is self pruning" comes into play.

When I sold tools, I had a young woman as a customer who drove trains for a living. She could have been a super model and her hobby was building hot rods.

I met a very cute young woman recently who is a union electrician.

They're out there.

It's as obvious as a Star Trek episode. There was never a disposable crew woman.

Men are much like sperm going hard to be first or good at something. This gets rid of many men.

Women are like eggs waiting, waiting and tired of waiting for men to do whatever the woman wants. This rarely gets rid of many women.

I'm sure they are, but US Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that they're outliers.

I'd like to lie out with either of them.

There are a few women in my industry. Mostly an oddity, and by production volume represent very little. On the surface this seems rather chauvinist and is cause for much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

But let's be clear. At my level in my industry we discriminate against 99% of men as well. I push men and equipment to the absolute edge of capacity. I've pushed muscle bound tattooed guys to panic attacks that left them soiling themselves in the fetal position. The ones left standing have enabled me to out produce my peers to an astounding level.

It has societal upsides, even if culture tries to make me the boogey man.
