Do you really think this book contains valuable information, or are you trolling?
It equates women's reasoning power with that of children,
I don't think the authors were trying to demean women by implying lower IQ but rather women rely more on emotions then logic for decision making - similar to children. "Women score higher in terms of language development and emotional intelligence.
" source: Men, Women and IQ - The Daily Beast
states that a woman's mental capacity is not equal to a man's
It's true, men have higher IQ. Men ARE more brainy than women, says scientist Professor Richard Lynn | Mail Online
women should be led away from assuming anything like equality with men for their own good.
That's right. Why? Because a woman's function
isn't equal to a man. (You can't have a woman as a fireman, construction worker or soldier because her body is weaker then a man. However, she can become a doctor or bus driver because she's capable (functional) of it. It's glaring obvious that women aren't equal to men, and this is for the good of everyone in society.)
You sound outraged because the truth is shocking (like finding out your parents having sex everyday at 12:00 PM, sharp).
Does that mean men are more important then women? No. Because without women, there wouldn't be men (or humankind, for that matter)
Both genders have different functions that work in synergy to compliment each other. Feminist get it wrong when they try to mold women into men (it's like using a screw driver as a hammer, it just doesn't work)
Being a feminist is bad, so is being a chauvinist. The sweet spot is seeing reality for what it is and acting accordingly.
