Come on. I said that there were some exceptions. But generally, I don't care if it's genetics, or experience or tradition. If men and women suddenly switched roles you'd have a huge increase of crap-filled diapers, and toddler concussions.
If we're going to accept that statement, then I suppose women being crappier drivers, less intelligent, etc. are all true as well.
Ooooh good one. Rather than arguing directly with my point you came up with a completely unrelated example.
Do you really think that the majority of men have the instincts, experience, desire, and patience to do as good of a job as women?
Its not really that unrelated, the same principle is at issue. If you're willing to accept the fact that women are genetically predisposed to being better parents, then you would have to be willing to at least accept the possibility that women are genetically inferior in some ways, examples being intelligence, driving, etc.
Okay, I'll accept that women and men are genetically different. Men are generally stronger, bigger, and faster. Am I wrong about that too?
Now please answer my question:
Do you really think that the majority of men have the instincts, experience, desire, and patience to do as good of a job as women in raising small children?
Some men, yes. Some men, no. Also, some women yes, some women, no. I don't see a difference in parenting skills between men and women. Generally, people are people and the degree of parenting skills they have is generally a result of the type of person they are.
