Men’s Standard of Excellence

Any discussion on gender differences bring howls of protest from feminists and politically correct activists, who see it as undermining many of their arguments for a fair go in life. But while the prejudices of society may reinforce and intensify stereotypical behavior in men and women, and fundamental inequities, the stereotypes are not the cause of the behavior. Our basic biology and how our brains are organized are the culprits.

Many women feel that they are failures or that women in general have failed by not conquering male-dominated areas. That is simply not true. Women have not failed; they have merely not been particularly well-equipped to enter areas that suit male brains much more. Women have not failed – they have only failed to be like men.

The idea that women have not succeeded in society is only valid when based on the assumption that success by male standards is, or should be, the benchmark for everyone’s success. But who says being a chief executive controlling a corporation, flying a jumbo jet or programming a space shuttle’s computer is the final measure of fulfillment? Men do. It is their standard of excellence, not everyone’s.
