Now, don’t get me wrong. I do find women very attractive. I find them cute, adorable etc. Now the woman liber’s, the woman firsters, the feminists etc. are the ones I do not like. Those ladies need to stop being leeches on the governments bum, and to us lesser men, stop being leeches to us. Now If I was a zillionarre, I wouldn’t care. I’m broke Middle Class, so yeah, I’m not going to be happy about the thought of alimony and child support.

So yeah, I can avoid marriage, and stay married to women who want to fight all the time, but us men shoudn’t have to do these things in our own nation our fathers built. You women say you don’t need men, prove it.

My friend wrote.

I was driving home from work today when I stopped at a red light. To my left was a woman in a very late model full size Mercedes Benz sedan. As I pulled up to her I noticed her reverse lights were on and I knew that:

1. A woman was behind the wheel
2. She didn’t know her car was in reverse
3. Something funny was about to happen

I take a closer look at the Benz and I see the woman putting on makeup and looking at herself in the visor mirror. The windows were down and I could have easily told her that her car was in reverse (but that’s no funbiggrin.gif). Not five seconds later, a late model 5 series BMW pulls up behind the Benz, this car also had a woman in the driver’s seat. I look at Mrs. Benz, she’s still putting on makeup, still has no idea she’s in reverse. I look back at Mrs. BMW, and she’s on the phone chattering away, oblivious to the Benz’s bright white reverse lights. Another fifteen seconds pass and the tension was building, I bit my lip to avoid laughing. I thought the light was going to turn green and Mrs. Benz was going to trade some paint with Mrs. BMW, but something EVEN FUNNIER happened.

(I couldn’t make this up if I tried…)

Mrs. Benz continues applying makeup and glancing at her baby in the backseat, when she drops the makeup case which falls onto the floor in front of the passenger’s seat. She leans over and fumbles on the floor of her car as her foot slides off the brake and the car starts crawling backwards and downhill. By the time the lady in the BMW saw this and hit her horn, it was too late and I heard the crunch of plastic bumpers trading paint. Mrs. Benz springs up, makeup case in hand and starts screaming at Mrs. BMW, thinking she was rear ended. My light turns green and I almost stall my car laughing.laugh.gif

Mrs. Benz, she’s still putting on makeup…

I have seen women putting on make-up and talking on their cells while driving.  However, I have seen men using an electric shaver and talking on their cells while driving.  I think more men are cited for reckless driving than women.  This is why their car insurance is far higher than women.  Getting insurance for teenaged males is far more expensive than females.  Although there has been an increase in teenaged female rates.

Some friends and myself witnessed a man getting cited by police at the mall.  He was cited for going in the mall and leaving two children under the age of five in the car in over 100 degree heat.  I know women have been cited for leaving their children in their car and having their children die from heat exposure.

Neither sex is better than the other.  They both can act equally reckless.

Actually my friend men drive 2/3 million more land miles than women. We have slightly hirer amounts of wrecks than women. Something like 5.37 per million miles driving, vs 5.127 per million miles driven by a woman.

When men crash, the accidents are deadly, when women crash, there are slightly less deaths, as there are more rear end collisions, more backing into telephone poles, etc.

In my city Portland alone, a woman managed to drive off a bridge while on the phone, into the river. She managed to live. Another car full of four women drive off the road and into the river. Instead of swimming to safety the woman called her husband for a rescue as the car sank. They all drowned.

There are coordination issues that are different in men and women. Equalitarianism cannot kill that.

Guys, think your driving skills are exceptionally better then your female counterparts? Think again! According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 2004 Early Edition Report, male drivers were involved in 27,000 more fatal accidents, 432,000 more injury crashes and 1,369,000 more property-damaged incidents than female drivers – which inevitably equated to 1,828,000 more insurance claims in a single a year. Sorry guys, the ladies win.

And it’s not just male drivers between the ages of 18-24 that are making these insurance claims – it’s men of all ages.

“By nature, men are generally more aggressive and tend to engage in riskier driving practices, such as not wearing their seat belt, speeding and driving under the influence,” says Ohio insurance agent, Brad Vermillion. “Men also typically drive more miles than women do over the course of their lifetime, which increases their risk of being involved in an accident and the amount of auto insurance claims they could potentially file.

Care to change your mind, Pat?

Who cares?

He already told you, men drive more miles than women (driving to and from work, driving when the woman is in the passenger seat). And yes, he told you that men have a slightly higher accident rate per mile than women. But just slightly. What’s the point of these statistics you are putting up? They don’t mean anything unless you control for, bare minimum, the number of miles.

men driving slightly more than women–shouldn’t amount to a 2,000,000 accident difference…Now play nice.

Do you have an English comprehension problem. He didn’t state men drive slightly more. He stated that men have a slightly higher accident rate to women per mile. Since men drive a lot more of the miles on the road then they are more likely to skew the accidents in their favor. Think about the amount of OTR truck drivers being men compared to women and this will increase the odds for men having higher accident fatalities.

Free–you don’t have to be nasty with your comments.  The article stated that men have approx. 2,000,000 more insurance claims a year than women.  I do not call this a slight increase as Pat stated.  Notice he didn’t put the numbers down for obvious reasons.  If he did, I appolige for not reading his post.

Maybe you should reread my posts where I pointed this out and not be so quick to get on the harping wagon……Regarding truck drivers—In open pit mining mining companies would rather use women drivers driving their big rigs—rigs with tires bigger than a person.  These mining companies have found that women are safer drivers— They are more careful and use their mirrors more.  They are involved in less accidents.  They check their surroundings more–more alert. I learned this on a field trip with my class.  We were learning about open pit mining and the prevalence of women miners in today’s world.

This is what he stated. So it seems we are close if he got these stats from a proven source. The truth is I drive a lot of miles. I work in construction all over the country and after a 10 shift may drive 200 to 300 miles to the next job. Sometimes were still driving 3 to 4 AM in the morning after work to get home and I don’t see much women on the road during these times but mostly men. These are more likely the danger zones of driving when your tired, again statistics can be skewed in all directions but you have to look at what the driving conditions are for men compared to women. I just don’t see women taking as many chances as men do so they have lower levels of accidents. How many more men drive drunk? How many more men think they are invincible behind the wheel? All I know is overall women are terrifying to watch behind the wheel at times. I jhave been cutoff more often by women in a daze then men. Right turn signal on when they turn left etc. Drive 30,000 miles plus a year and you will see every thing behind the wheel. The best one is a driver in a GEO that swings their car into the left left to make a right turn as if they have a 50 foot trailer behing their car.

The truth is men lead, we push the envolope of new technology and exploration. This has been and always due to our nature of wanting to prove it can be done. Women follow after, many times claiming to do what a man can but almost never lead. This is why career women have trouble with men, you want to lead but, leading men will never accept this so there is friction. In the end society will lose when the leading men find an alternative or they give up in the millions. Women will never lead a society to a higher level. Women want comfort zones so they demand more government intervention. A real man doesn’t want to see government in his life he tends to take care and protect himself. The dfference between foreign women and American women is simple. The foreign women is just as smart even smarter since she uses sugar to get her way. You will lose challenging men in a relationship. Where you lost your female instincts who knows? Probably feminist’s studies in college claiming men to be oppressors causes you to fight your own nature.

Men lead
Women follow.

Yo, PV:

I’d like to take a look at the statistics you based this response on. Would you post a link for us? Thanks in advance.

Also, since my motorcycle is my primary mode of transportation 3/4 of the year, I have a unique perspective on distracted drivers.  I’ve seen ’em all: Soccer moms in SUV’s trying to balance their fruit smoothies while changing out the Barney CD for the Blues Clues CD, young professional types fiddling with their Blackberries, teenagers (the worst) playing “The Fast and the Furious,” on the freeway. Yesterday, I had the displeasure of encountering a middle-aged man in a Toyota READING A FRIGGIN’ NEWSPAPER while driving 45 in a 65 zone. C’mon! They’re everywhere, regardless of gender, age, race, creed, or color.
