14. From the time that men are born, they are conditioned to be
hard and mean, on average. A man who was raised to be gentle can be gentle, but unfortunately, too often, men will try to be hard and mean to "fit in" or "be acceptable in society."

My personal view on this issue transcends male and female. I agree with you that women are often aggressive and mean as well. And yes, women do fight differently, but they do in fact fight too. I think it has to do with evolution more than it has to do with gender. Hormones may play a role, but a man or woman full of testosterone can control themselves and be soft, if their mindset is more evolved. I really think it has to do with the evolution of humankind. The less violent people are more evolved than the more violent people. Gender may seem to play a role to most people, but I think that's just the "societal norms" of our era.

What we need are, regardless of gender, more evolved thinking people to be our leaders. Chimpy definitely does NOT qualify for the position. He needs to be locked inside a cave with bin Laden and the other less evolved violent subhuman characters until he learns to think or rot there. I personally don't care which happens. I'd rather never see him again.

My aunt has a saying about ignorance, which, imo, plays a big role in violent tendencies. She says that ignorance should be eliminated or eradicated. Either way, the human species needs to grow up and learn to resolve conflicts in a more intelligent way or else. I agree with that idea.
