Another reason not to allow women power in government.

24 Killed by PC

But revenge themes have always been very unpopular with women. Even female-oriented revenge flicks such as Jodie Foster’s “the Brave One” have not succeeded with women. This is likely due to profound gender differences. Men are both more comfortable with violence and familiar with what it can and cannot achieve. Every young boy is in at least several fights, while most young women experience social exclusion rather than physical intimidation as right of passage from puberty into adulthood. For men, moreover, physical violence can work to produce a higher status in society or reverse their usurpation from a position by a rival. Physical violence and revenge, however, does not “work” for women in the mating game. It does not make women either prettier or younger. Women generally take the tack that violent revenge does not work because it does not, indeed, work for them. For men, and within reason, violent revenge does work and is sometimes mandated to prevent further loss of power, status, and even life.

    Women will persist in saying that revenge and violence don’t work as long as they have violent men taking revenge on their behalf.
