Boys' interests tilt towards things; girls' interests tilt towards people. Strikingly, these differences, strongly influenced by biological factors, are most pronounced in the Scandinavian societies where gender equality has been pushed the hardest: this is the opposite of what would be expected by those who insist, ever more loudly, that gender is a social construct. It isn't. This isn't a debate. The data are in. ...Other factors play their role in the decline of boys. Girls will, for example, play boys' games, but boys are much more reluctant to play girls' games. This is in part because it is admirable for a girl to win when competing with a boy. It is also OK for her to lose to a boy. For a boy to beat a girl, however, is often not OK --and just as often, it is even less OK for him to lose. Imagine that a boy and a girl, aged nine, get into a fight. Just for engaging, the boy is highly suspect. If he wins, he's pathetic. If he loses, well his life might as well be over. Beat up by a girl.Girls can win by winning in their own hierarchy -- by being good at what girls value, as girls. They can add to this victory by winning in the boys' hierarchy. Boys, however, can only win by winning in the male hierarchy. They will lose status, among girls and boys, by being good at what girls value. It costs them in reputation among the boys, and in attractiveness among the girls. Girls aren't attracted to boys who are their friends, even though they might like them, whatever that means. They are attracted to boys who win status contests with other boys. If you're male, however, you just can't hammer a female as hard as you would a male. Boys can't (won't) play truly competitive games with girls. It isn't clear how they can win. As the game turns into a girl's game, therefore, the boys leave. Are the universities -- particularly the humanities -- about to become a girl's game?
The underlying message of this is that boys are superior to women if they can only lose status and women can only gain. What I don't get is how are the inferiors running the games of the superiors? In a hierarchy of power, shouldn't that be the other way around?
I have recognized my generation as being sacrificed to the feminazi gods. We did not achieve equality. All we achieved was ineffective men and hobbled boys who would otherwise be great men. The observations that have led me to this conclusion are readily had; one simply has to look around and use a little introspect to see it.
A court in Brussels fined him €3,000 for insulting a police officer because of her gender, Le Soir reported.It comes as France prepares to create an offence of street harassment, described as “sexist and sexual outrage”.The Belgian case involved a driver who was stopped for breaking the highway code. The young man – who has not been identified – insulted the police officer because of her gender, the court heard.He was reported to have said she would be better off doing a job “adapted to women”, in a scene witnessed by several other people. The driver was found guilty of three charges: contempt of a police officer, making threats and sexist remarks in public, and a serious violation of another person’s dignity because of her gender.He was warned that if he failed to pay the fine, a prison term of a month would be imposed.
Competitive team games in which men test their mettle against others are universal across the world, and may have deep roots in our evolutionary past. Among hunter-gatherers, these games enable men to hone their physical skills and stamina, assess the commitment of their team members, and see how each performs under pressure. ..."Periodic participation in such games during childhood, adolescence, and early to middle adulthood provides individuals with opportunities to viscerally assess the aggressive formidability and commitment of their own and -- when played with neighboring groups -- other coalitions as their composition and skills change through time," explains Scalise Sugiyama. "The widespread evidence for such games among hunter-gather societies suggests that the motivation to engage in them is a universal feature of human psychology, generating behavior that develops, rehearses, and refines the coalitional combat skills used in lethal raiding."

I feel like this argument needs more work. I don't understand how a fringe and rare phenomenon (even in the Bay Area) of girls trying to play in boys' sports leagues could be responsible for so many social ills.
