Sexism and Paleo?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 24, 2013 at 4:39 PM

It is appalling to see the incredible amount of sexism here on hacks. For Nada to be permitted with such comments as the one on this question http://paleohacks.com/questions/181460/is-it-true-that-most-men-die-in-their-60s-and-most-women-in-their-80s-closed#axzz2Lkvrf0GW that there is no problem with men dieing earlier than women, is outrageous. While mcorrison's questions were closed in both instances here http://paleohacks.com/questions/181460/is-it-true-that-most-men-die-in-their-60s-and-most-women-in-their-80s-closed#axzz2Lkvrf0GW and here http://paleohacks.com/questions/181520/nadas-disgusting-bigoted-and-sexist-closed#axzz2LpmuodJH, there is most evidently an alternative agenda with the mods here on hacks. This question is in protest to the misandry that is prevalent on Hacks, and I appreciate all of your support. Thank you.

Both the male and female have a purpose! Men are the primary hunter-gatherers and women are care-takers. To say that our providers dying earlier is not a problem, is a very brash statement and I do not feel as if it should remain unreconciled.

Thank you once more, for all of your support! It is very much appreciated! :-)

Edit

DId someone edit my tags? I did not put "fags" in my tags. Nada, was that you? Silly girl :)

@ Paul 'Sigh. Perhaps someone can empathize with how I must deal with imbeciles such as Luckie'. I'm sure many people do think like you- sexism and misogyny is alive and well in this world and on this board unfortunately. A sad state of affairs really where people like you think they can justifiably talk this way. I daresay your words say more about you than they do about any of the people or (hugely diverse) groups you attempt to tarnish...

Women have lived longer than man in the past mainly due to lower stress since in the past fewer of them had high stress jobs. A lot has changed in the past 40 years and now the gap in life expectancy has narrowed significantly because women are getting the same high stress jobs that used to only be done by men.

In some areas men outlive women and they re-marry at around 90 years old because their first wives die. The only difference in those areas that women eat more grains.

I would never insult a wonderful group of people like gay men by insinuating that YOU are one of THEM. In fact, I kinda feel bad for the men who are misrepresented as a whole by individuals like you. Luckily, there are a lot of fine, upstanding gentlemen on this forum who are great examples of how men can be wonderful human beings.

There's no conspiracy on the part of mods. In fact, no moderators were involved in the closure of those previous questions. I predict that none are involved in the closure of this one either. Ask better questions, stop being an ass, and you won't get your questions shut down by other users.

Calling homosexuals offensive things is a homophobic action. If you're not actually a homophobe, don't do homophobic things and people won't think that of you. Also, this is Paleohacks, not SexismHacks, making it off-topic, and this isn't a real question even if it were SH. This post is also subjective and argumentative. Lots of reasons to close, and all of them valid.

You're the same person who called homosexual people the offensive f-word. If you want people to take you seriously when it comes to these kinds of issues, try not to dish out homophobia. Consider this voted to close.

Men are the primary hunter-gatherers and women are care-takers.

I think that is sexist.

"Women live longer than men on average" is like "Women are shorter than men on average." I don't find problem with either statement. Am I sexist?

nada did not say, "Men do not deserve to live as long as women." That would be sexist. But that's not what nada said.

Edit:

Women's longer life expectancy may be natural. Females outlive males in many other species. It may have something to do with mitochondria. Here is a place to start: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/08/120802122503.htm

Now, I am NOT saying men shouldn't live as long as women. Do not distort my words.

I have no idea what the fuss is about. The question was essentially whether men die, on average, earlier than women. I think it is a legitimate question with legitimate answers. Life expectancy varies by gender.

I don't think these posters were anti-man or anti-woman nor did they express or imply that it was good/acceptable for men to die younger. Statistically they do, a little, but not 10-20+ years sooner. There is plenty of data available on this.

Before this closes....

In the broadest possible terms, I think men and women use paleo in different ways. Men tend to use it to justify the eating of more bacon, eggs, steak and all the other great stuff. Women tend to use it as an optimizing tool.

As a man, this often results in the frustration of seeing data walls of thyroid (or whatever particular issue) hieroglyphics, but I try to learn something useful. I did not focus myself on health issues until I had them, and would be healthier overall if I had started working on them sooner. I work with other men who will be mired in diabetes problems for the rest of their prematurely shortened lives.
