1. Women have more taste for starches and sugars, while men is more inclined towards eating meat. All women love good pasta. This denotes our evolutionary past, meaning that women (also kids) diet consisted of starches much longer (thousands of years longer) than men. Men were still either hunting or herding, while women were already on mostly starch, nut, fruit diet.
2. Do you think women were not capable of figuring out how to plant veggies and wheat close to home, instead of walking and gathering for millies? As Balder mentioned, it makes so much more sense to have stuff growing around the house, while also tending and cooking for 10 kids.
3. It took time till proper crops (big scale farming) were developed, which needed men to control oxens with the plow or scatter manure around fields. Till that time there was no reason to pull men away from herding or hunting (essential source of protein), just to tend small gardens. For gardens and small fields women and kids were adequate.
4. Go to the village and you will see that gardens by homes are attended almost only by women.
5. Women have straing (comparing men) inclination towards flowers and small scale gardening. They make them happy.






I am not selling women short, i am simply stating the fact that the majority of human achievement, either intellectual or otherwise, was facilitated by men. You will find isolated cases where women contributed to math, science and or philosophy, but not many. Those cases are the exception to the norm.

To prove that women are as intellectually capable as men in Chess, a woman will have to occupy the highest rating in Chess. Until that happens, which it won't, it is rational to conclude that their purpose on earth lies within the machinery of the womb.
It should be self explanatory...

By the same token, man has a penis and sperm, so what is man's purpose?

For god sake, it doesn't mean that women should stop there. Do you want them to walk around impregnated all the time to fulfil their main purpose of life?

Women are intellectually inferior to men.
I hope you'll be so open to your girlfriend or wife.

You know what, keep your chess, because if it comes to multitasking at work or family life women are superior to men. And it is so much more important in real life, unless you're Kasparov.

I'm not saying that men and women are the same and have same capabilities to do all jobs equally. In some men are better in some women are. But we have to keep in mind that only decades passed since women got equal rights in western world, and till today have to prove themselves in business, politics and science to be accepted as equal in traditionally male oriented fields. So cut them some slack at the moment, make sure you treat them with respect and give them same opportunities, and after 100 years we will know for sure who is good for what.
