naturally. proven to have faster brain processes.

research shows that they reason more with different halves of their hemispheres, but a combined effort always result in a BLAST.

@TOPIC, its not only in leadership positions, but almost every other areas.

Men are world leaders becos that is hw it has been from the beginning,Adam was made first b4 Eve and the bible also made a statement that the woman should honour the man becos he his the head just like Jesus Christ is the head of the church.And i believe men are more sturdy in facing risk than woman,although there are a few woman u can face thesame risk.

Moreorso,men easily adapt to circumtances surrounding them and are good when it comes to leading a troop.

Attempt to equal men with women in any sphere of life will amount to disunion, insecurity and anarchy in the society. Look at, since women who were coal miners originated the act of women putting on trousers,it has earned the society more evil than good. Women are now going Unclad, incidences of molest is high, prostitution is high.

Before now, polyandry is not known in this part of the world.So we are contending with two cases; polygamy and polyandry.

Our children are jettisoning the core African value because women want to do what men are doing.

So much alteration of nature has the tendency of destroying the entire human race. Beware!

@ALL

PLEASE LET'S MAKE A CLEAR DISTINCTION BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND BRILLIANCE.

@AMEBO NO1

DON'T CONFUSE BRILLIANCE FOR INTELLIGENCE

brilliance is a much broader term to intelligence

@amebo no1

don't analyze with your emotions but with your brain cells,if you were careful to read through my post, you will find out that i did not only mention academics,so why choose to be defensive in an issue that is clearly not debatable.have you for once pondered which of the sexes is largely associated with the numerous scientific discoveries,inventions and innovations?

Women are no doubt intelligent,besides men need them to stand out in most cases. don't forget that i used the phrase 'contextual differences' and i ended by saying that the axiom is true in general.so take your time and read through any post critically before you reply.i do not want to draw a reference from creation,but amebo no1 you can understand what is been said if you drop the sentiments and 'feminism'.for now men remain the most preferred bundle.let's just hope a evolution takes place in the near future.

ok people, God created men and women for special roles, child bearing doesn't mean a woman is an , and tilling the soil doesn't mean the man is an either. The order of creation has nothing to do with intelligence. It only has to do with the roles of each gender in life. Roles does not equal intelligence. Child bearing isn't a standard for measuring intelligence and neither is bringing home the bacon.

taa God forbid. Male and female he created them. Each with their distinctive and special roles in life, but never unequal in intelligence. Anyone that tells you that is an . If you are a christian, it isn't in the Bible, I am not too sure about the quran and others, but I know in the Bible it ain't so.

We are not standing behind them. Any man who has his woman standing behind him is severly insecure about his manhood. If he was a real man, he would be confident enough to have her by her side. Seriously God has blessed me never to meet such a man and I thank him for it.

It's a mans world but it will be nothing without the woman.

The ultimate and sole purpose of man's action and every man-made structure on earth is to please woman by making life easier and safer for her and children.

So who's the real mugu? who's the real helper/servant of whom?

Men are not even smart enough to figure this sh*t out.

for the sake of it even when they know deep down inside the truth is what is been told, you tell some

women the moon is white they ll turn around and say no it is purple, just dont like admitting stuff.

until women outshine men in logical thinking and creativity, the statement remains valid.

This should not even be a topic for debate to be honest, men think with logic and women are emotionally driven

that right there is a factual statement, anyone that has a different opinion should direct that question to GOD himself i.e

why did you put Adam in charge of the garden of Eden and not Eve.

Even though there are certain deviations or contextual differences. speaking generally men tends to be more intelligent than women,most of us are graduates of institutions of middle and higher level and in our schooling days we are supposed to have seen multiple cases of men's intelligentsia dominating that of the ladies both in academic,sports,mind games and a whole lot.i will be quick to specify that there are several factors that gives in to male dominance which i believe is largely due to the shortfalls of the women,put simply women choose to be overridden by men and that cannot be changed.it has been that way right from creation and the beginning of things.

I understand that this is a gender-superiority debate and some ladies will rather choose to be maintain a feminist view in defense for instance LUXOIRE .the dumbest dummy knows that 1+1=2,so it still doesn't follow if some people choose not to accept that simple theory.

I RECOMMEND THE POST OF SASHA009,BEAF AND OHAECHESI

@EZEAGU AND JABBOK

ALWAYS BEAR IN MIND THE THEME OF THE POST,IT IS A GENERAL ANALYSIS.WOMEN WHO ARE WILLING TO COMPETE WITH THE MEN AMID THE CIRCUMSTANCES WILL DEFINITELY FLY HIGH.THE ONES THAT HAVE STOOD UP ARE VERY SMALL RELATIVE TO THE MEN.

The issue of men's "born to rule superiority" coms from different angles

creationism: God created men bfore women

science: charles darwin evolution scientist indoctrinated the issue of men being a stronger sex

also during "survival of the fittist" period men where the one's who always steped up for there families and even till date men will alway do without being told why? It's in them as a resposibility during those time leadership involved "show working" i.e going to wars, hunting, overcoming a physical adversiry etc which Women even without children responsibility did'nt have the balls to face, now because civilization has made leadership a white colla thing for civillians women want equal chance.

i dont think women should be treated with less respect to men or is a man more intelligent than women but obviosly men have proven themselves more worthy of leadership than women. Y'all can be what u want be but not men. If women = men who will play the role of women

women be women, men will alway be MEN.

biblically, women are the weak vessel. at the same time, women are defiled during mentrual period while there are no season in the bible a man could be defiled. it simply means men stands upright to face any challenge at all time.

@Sasha009,

You are a very analytical and intelligent lady, most of the ladies in this forum believe that women are as strong as men when in actual fact,God has made man to be the stronger being,

However,the two beings should not enter into competition as God never intended it to be, Women were made to assist the man and not to compete the man, but for people to be comparing who is stronger and more intelligent between the two is funny,

You should realise that the bible was translated for political benefit (read the preface). Also, it was written 1000+ years ago, so does not answer several modern day sociocultural issues.

By all means follow it if you must, but don't quote it to back up every logical arguement. It makes the points you raise formulaic and dogmatic, whereas situations, cultures and other experiences are unique.

We just need to accept what we are, there male and female before the bible.

Ask any male child who he fears and respects most, It would be his dad. Why? His dad has the physical and hormonal attributes to wrench seven devils out of him should his head turn wrong. His mums smaller voice really does'nt do it. The whole thing begins from birth.

This is where the man the upper hand; a more imposing physical build, a deeper voice, the likelyhood to take riskier actions, the likelyhood to be more competitive (have you seen responsible grown men at red lights? One foot on the throttle, feather touch on the clutch?).

On average women are much better communicators, where men are much more forceful.

It really is sad that women don't get as many opportunities as they deserve and talents can go unrealised. We can't escape it, its the law of the jungle; the biggest male always leads the lion pack.

Men should always have these things in mind and be cortious and supportive.

Men, bring your sons up to respect women, we owe them several debts.

@Poster. I think you are one of those few women that are objective enough, Come to think of it, there are not so many women that are objective; you keep on hearing phrases like" what a man can do, a woman can do better" duh. I don't think i need to disproof that statement. We all know that some of the greatest minds that lived were men, scientists, philosophers, inventors. I am yet to hear of any female inventor(except Marie Currie who discovered x-ray. She even worked with her husband, Not an inventor though she's close to being one).  

But to say a man is more intelligent than a woman might not be 100% accurate , neither would i say that men are superior, that is another extreme. But let each sex come to accept who they really are,  

Most women right group and activist would not like to hear things like this, Beware of them ( Remember mama na boy the MTN advert?)

True!

A woman’s most important assignment is her husband and her kids, but she should be fulfilled careerwise, etc. Women should be strong If not, she is wasting her brains and abilities. What if she has 6 children all female and they all decide to be housewives? Wasted resources!!!

Prov 31

10A truly good wife is the most precious treasure a man can find! 11Her husband depends on her, and she never lets him down. 12She is good to him  every day of her life, 16She knows how to buy land  and how to plant a vineyard,   17and she always works hard. 18She knows when to buy or sell, and she stays busy until late at night.   25She is strong and graceful, [b] as well as cheerful  about the future. 26Her words are sensible, and her advice  is thoughtful.  27She takes good care of her family and is never lazy.  28Her children praise her,  and with great pride her husband says,  29"There are many good women,  but you are the best!"  30Charm can be deceiving, and beauty fades away,

Epehsians 5: 22-33 AFTER THE CURSE

22Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

25Husbands, love your wives,  . . . 33However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Correct!

Gen 1:26-28 BEFORE THE CURSE

    26God said, "Now we will make humans, and they will be like us. We will let them rule the fish, the birds, and all other living creatures."

    27So God created humans to be like himself; he made men and women. 28God gave them his blessing and said:  Have a lot of children! Fill the earth with people and bring it under your control. Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds in the sky, and every animal on the earth.

    Gen 3:16- THE CURSE

To the woman He said:

      “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;

      In pain you shall bring forth children;

      Your desire shall be for your husband,

      And he shall rule over you.

God had made his work perfect and so would it be. Head shall we be and not tail. I don't see women as inferior or lesser being but appreciate the fact that God has made domine over wowen, hence the reason for the excellence and greatness of all sorts that's been endowed on all men. Women could be as great, intelligent, wise etc like or more than men, but God's work cannot be challenged, it's done and so be it.

First of all, it is scientifically pr-oven that men are physically stronger than women (except the woman is into fitness). It is also scientifically prove that our brain structure though similar, differ in function. Men analyze based on logic, strategy and fact, while women analyze base on instinct and emotion. This difference, like someone mentioned earlier, was brought about due the the varying domestic roles played by both sexes. Men had to be more analytical in hunting, war, and the construction/ building of comunities. While women on the other hand had to be more tender and nurturing, so as to attend to and understand the fragile wants of the child (A task you would not want to leave to a man whom had just returned from hunting a wild boar , lol) Both task, in the general scope of things are of equal importance and significance. The inequality between both spawned about when some women got board (especially those who couldn't have kids) of staying at home and wanted to accompany the men in battle, or on a hunting expedition of which the men replied "you not as capable of a man to handle this or your not Strong enough to do this" This mentality has stuck with us from those early day of civilization till date. Like wise woman wouldn't want to leave the well fare of the child with her husband. Now the work place has changed, and women are becoming more indepented, and keep making major contributions to our society (somthing they have always done) But still the stereo types persist.

First of all, intelligence is definitely not a criterion at least not in practice for being a world leader.

Second, men are world leaders because society has always left them free to pursue outside-of-the-home work interests.

As for gender and intelligence. I don't think men are necessarily more intelligent than women overall or vice-versa. It's really juvenile for people to be making all these one-gender-is-better-than-the-other generalizations. Some people are in certain ways more intelligent or ambitious or scheming than others but I don't think it has anything to do with gender.
