Quote# 89898

Besides functioning as glorified birth machines women have done nothing to uphold society. Didn’t build the housing, hunt the food, develop the technology or fight the wars. I guess they helped with some of the farm work but no more so then the animals that men domesticated. So aside from children women have historically had done about as much for society as mules have. Probably less, actually.

I always laugh when I hear guys say things like, “If women ran the world, we’d still be churning butter”. Women would never have developed the technology to churn butter.

Doubting Thomas

Oh and I might add that it's the conservative right who have traditionally held women back and told them that they're just glorified birth machines who belong in the kitchen, and then they claim that women haven't contributed to society. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Oh this guy is a scumbag of the highest order.

First of all, where is our "Sexists Say the Darnedest Things"?

Even Freud, who hated women, allowed that women must have invented fire. If we assume that, plus strict hunter-gatherer division between the sexes, then women must have invented:

Hot water
Brewing (which they alone did until the Sixteenth Century)
Grain foods
Food cultures, like yeast and lactobacilli

They doubtless also were the first to domesticate hens and cows, and dairy cows and poultry remained their province even in societies that gave all else to men. It was doubtless, also, in the ashes of some big cooking hearth that a woman discovered that certain stones, subjected to enough heat, gave off malleable metal.

In all likelihood, it was a woman, tired of straying afield to gather, who thought of bringing home plants and seeds so stuff could be grown near at hand. And the domestication of animals was probably started by little girls.

I am sure our sweaty commenter understands the importance of beer. More important is that he learn the proper use of soap, hot water, and brushes.

You're posting on a site called "ManBoobz".

Your preachment is forfeit.

EDIT: Oh, and do look up Grace Hopper sometime. Y'know, author of the first compiler and all that. Huge leap forward for them thar computron thingies that you so like to use to harangue half the human race with.

Otis the Sweaty has never been laid! Probably cause he's sweaty.

Actually, women have developed a huge number of innovations. It's been traditional for men to claim female achievements or marginalize them. Hell, sewing was likely a female invention and we'd never have survived the Ice Age without it.

"Didn’t build the housing, hunt the food, develop the technology or fight the wars. I guess they helped with some of the farm work"

WWII. Rosie the Riveter.

Your argument is invalid.

Agriculture was developed as an extension of the "gatherer" side of the hunter/gatherer economy.
That was the side dominated by WOMEN.
Women made it possible for men to sit around bragging about the big hunt ten summers ago, when they actualy got something.

"glorified birth machines" ?

a woman carrying a child for 8 months is taking a fairly large risk with her own health and life.
What alternative is there ? Can you carry a baby to term ? can you build a machine that will do it ? can you use another animal as a surrogate ?

No ?

Then join me in a small cheer for women, without them there would be no society.


10/4/2012 8:10:13 AM


And neither would you, so shut up you underfucked hillbilly.

10/4/2012 8:11:00 AM


You may be right, but of course we will never know because of the fact that you and your ilk have been oppressing women for millenia.

ManBoobz...how appropriate because you sir are a boob.

10/4/2012 8:40:38 AM


You fail humanity on top of many other things

10/4/2012 9:06:05 AM


I'm seeing someone who will continue to have problems getting laid. Your comment is a vast cesspit of ignorance and stupidity. There are volumes written about what women have accomplished in engineering, technology, science, medecine.
Their biggest problem throughout the centuries have been clueless assholes like Otis the Sweaty (nice image that conjures up)

10/4/2012 9:17:25 AM


Women would never have developed the technology to churn butter.
Sorry, Marie Curie was too busy discovering radioactive energy and inventing the modern world to hear the incredibly ignorant and stupid shit you just said.

@ Scrappy B: Thanks...good to know :)
He had me fooled with that utterly tasteless post!

"...women have historically had done about as much for society as mules have. Probably less, actually."

But you would say that, being heavily biased in favour of the ones you have a greater and more intimate knowledge of, which in this case is mules. You know nothing of women.

There's three types of human, men and women, who take care of children and business, and storage units for rapidly moving canon balls who kill men, women, children and themselves and destroy businesses.

If women ran the world, we would be colonizing Mars by now.

10/4/2012 10:17:14 AM


OK, so you're a man and a boob.

10/4/2012 10:50:59 AM


This is not true. Women have been used for unpaid labour for centuries, and when they were employed they were often underpaid and exploited. In fact they were employed for exactly that reason, cos they could be paid less.

"Besides functioning as glorified birth machines women have done nothing to uphold society."

well, obviously, that's not the case. but more importantly, what's otis the sweaty done to uphold society? my suspicion is that he's taking the achievements of better men as his own because he happens to have a dick (probably only just, too).

@Thinking Allowed
Argument from ignorance, appeal to consequences and ad hoc fallacy.

I hope you're just trolling or being sarcastic because otherwise you do your name a disservice.

10/4/2012 12:29:56 PM


Ever get the urge to just knock someone on their ass and then piss on them?

10/4/2012 12:58:01 PM


Plus, raising structures was for the longest time a whole-community endeavor, where everyone of both sexes contributed. So zero again, Otis.
