Barnicle: Women 'Better Balanced, Have Better Judgment' Than Men
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 06/05/2013 5:16:58 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Looks like Mike Barnicle's not going to let anyone get to his PC-left when it comes to women.

On today's Morning Joe, Barnicle claimed that "a lot of men . . . fear the fact--and I think it's a fact--that women are better balanced than men. They have better judgment about things than a lot of men." Barnicle's comment during a discussion about the statement made yesterday by Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant that the decline in educational outcomes for children today is due to the entry of women into the workforce.

When are we going to treat people as individuals rather than assume everyone have the characteristic typical of whatever group they're in.

I believe that on average women do have a lower center of gravity (polite way of saying they have big butts) so perhaps they are “better balanced.”

Thanks for watching, Mark. Airtime for the socialist mouthpieces, pandering to their collectives to pave the progressive cup-de-sac for the former sociopath of state and its run to the presidency.

Here’s a story that happened to me last decade, while I was still wearing the Green Suit:

I was part of a major National Guard event held at Fort Leavenworth. Units from half a dozen states sent their staff weenies to play a map game, and my unit went along.

As we were all sitting around at the chow hall, a few of the back-East liberals began a political discourse, which wound up at the Constitution. A few began spouting all sorts of liberal crap, showing their limited knowledge.

So, I had some fun...

I asked the group a single question: “Which amendment to the Constitution has caused the most damage to our nation?”

Thoughtful looks, followed by a few tentative guesses. Predictably, one said the Second. One said the First. Another the Fourth.

I stared around the room and said, “You’re all wrong. The answer is... The Nineteenth.”

And I got blank looks. NO ONE remembered the Constitution. So I dropped the stink bomb:

“All of society’s ills today, all of our debt, our decadence, our debauchery, can be traced back to THE DAY WE GAVE WOMEN THE RIGHT TO VOTE!”

And all I got was sage nods from the back-East liberals...

Barnicle continued, “For instance, women would have better sense than to get busted for plagiarism on numerous occasions like I have been.”

women gave us clinton and obama. Not exactly what I’d call good judgement.

As to being well balanced, hasn’t this guy ever read any facebook posts? I think women (in general) first get well balanced sometime around 70 years of age.

What does "better balanced" even mean?

As to judgment, yes, I'd say women do have better judgment on some things. But men have better judgment on others.

Each gender has (in general) strengths and weaknesses. God designed it that way so we would complement one another.

It’s not saying much to say that somebody has “better judgement” than Barnicle, a man (well sort of).

I always laugh when I hear such nonsensical generalized statements about any group, particularly when it involves genders.

When I was a young woman, a male colleague of mine insisted that men were more spiritual than women. He was certain that he was correct. I told him that I disagreed with his statement. That spirituality was a personal thing and was not tied to one’s gender; that men and women can be either deeply spiritual or not spiritual at all.

Illogical thinking is a result of people who do not have much wisdom of life.

To a Dem, it means "they agree with the Progressive agenda". That's all it ever means.

You are smart and sane if you agree with the Left's agenda. If you disagree, then you are stupid, crazy, evil, and not fit to be running around unsupervised.

In a Christian life skills seminar I was told to consult the wife prior to making major business decisions. In much of my history that would have been a very good idea.

A friend was in Boston yesterday, where I believe Barnicle hails. Anyway, he told me there were men dressed in high boots, wigs and even some in makeup (he saw one with smeared lipstick) standing on street corners asking people to help women causes. Of course, no sign of women helping men in any causes. I told him if the subject is domestic violence ask the individuals if that includes babies killed by women.

As a female I laugh at him, he obviously knows nothing about estrogen and progesterone. These hormones deeply affect judgment.

Truthfully, there is a saying that, “When ladies stand up, gentlemen sit down and listen.” And there is a lot of sense in this.

When men have a conversation with each other, they often jockey for “conversational dominance”, one-upmanship, and the “male answer syndrome” (in which they try to authoritatively answer questions even when they don’t have a clue.) This can be seen with their body language, their inflection, pace and volume of speaking, etc.

If they are to be at a table, men will move their chairs before sitting, rearrange “their stuff” on the table, vie for table space, “ankle-thigh” cross their legs to show their personal territory, etc.

Most men still try to maintain this dominance when there are women *seated* at the table as well. This often ends up with women ignoring what the men are saying, and the men being irritated by what the women are saying.

However, this changes a lot when women stand to speak. “They have the floor”, or feminine dominance, is a strong signal to men to sit there and shut up.

There is probably some very deep biological underpinnings to this, that are not fully explained, but it is very obvious to “people watchers”, who have been studying such things since at least Charles Darwin, who wrote a book about it. (Though Desmond Morris’s “Manwatching” is a very good, well illustrated, modern read for it.)
