    Is empathy gender specific and is it innate?

    Is empathy gender specific and is it innate?

    By Celtic Druid


    Many events throughout my life have reinforced my view that women are overwhelmingly and disproportionately empathetic towards other women - regardless of circumstance. Nothing or no one can assuage me from this view after what I have witnessed, and endured in my lifes somewhat tedious journey as a male running the gauntlet of feminism.

    As men our first tentative steps are for the most under the assumed unquestioned "safe" guidance of our mothers as children. Who, without any kind of stewardship or egalitarian filter have taught - or is it indoctrinate their sons? learned self-serving perceptions which have soley benefited generations of women - who have passed on this chauvinistic assumption that women are more valued than men.

    Empathy is often marketed pompously by feminists and in turn women, who parrot how women are much more capable of empathy then men. However when the evidence is evaluated devoid of politics and personal agendas, undoubtedly we see that men not only do not receive empathy from women regardless of the situation. They receive contempt and derision in it's place.

    I uphold my view that women raise their sons 'consciously or subconsciously' to be slaves and servants to women. Mothers always fanatically indoctrinate their sons how girls are "sugar and spice an all things nice" and you shouldn't hit girls - also if you are hit by a girl BE A MAN and suck it up you big baby/whiner. This selfish sexist and chauvinistic mentality only but serves to ensure (in part) that empathy remains gender specific and the 'divide' is maintained.

    Girls are not taught that perpetrating violence against boys is wrong, this validates societal perceptions that whatever despicable crimes women commit - including killing children - it still evokes empathy from many women and men, almost as a learned social default. This moral "disparity" should not be drawn along gender lines regarding how we respond to the 'slaughter of the innocent.' Instead, the very least we as a civilised society can do is apply the law EQUALLY regardless of gender and socially engineered politics! Not to do so, ensures that we have colluded in the next murder!!

    Empathy has reached such insane proportions that child protective agencies worldwide (NSPCC for eg) are 'seemingly' more interested in protecting the physically abusive and murdering mother - than the child/ren they have abused or murdered. Such is the gynocentric influence of feminism and for example - the moronic viewers of cult oprah -- Who fanatically propagate this sickening notion endlessly -- and its insidious ilk, ensure this one-sided notion of empathy prevails seemingly unabated.
    The wicked flee when none pursueth. Proverbs 28:1

    'Rise like Lions after slumber In unvanquishable number - Shake your chains to earth like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you - Ye are many - they are few.'

    Percy Bysshe Shelley

    "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. "
    Thomas Jefferson

    The internet has been a lifeboat for men's opposition to the floodings of feminism.

    Re: Is empathy gender specific and is it innate?

    Celtic Druid- you raise some good points here

    Yes- I loathe and detest the way in which society are raised to view females (intentionally or otherwise) as somehow more worthy of protection and praise

    What is also disgusting is that so many people, like they always do, sit back and let it happen without a smidgin of foresight

    It is foresight that will save us darnit!!

    Why don't these numbskulls think about the consequences for boys growing up when they are told:

    - Don't hit girls

    - Always treat women with great respect

    - Women and children first

    They never

    NEVER

    Even think about what such tom-foolery entails!!

    All it does is send the notion that you are male, therefore you are inferior and must put your needs last- even if you are abused

    And it is toothrot!

    The lot of it!!

    And whenever you even attempt at telling people this it is like banging your head against a brick wall :headbang:

    These are not isolated cases- in fact, almost all males have been told this

    Also- I would say in the case of empathy- you would have to of been in that situation, as opposed to sympathy- feeling sorry for someone from an outer-perspective

    I believe the gossiping of women in general, (labour/childbirth/period pains etc) evoke an amount of empathy, which are common experiences they harp on about continually

    Whilst alleged 'discrimination' is more sympathetic- as this doesn't exist as much, if at all, as others lead you to think, so when people hear of this so-called prejudice against women, sympathy is the emotion here

    And it comes from both men and women

    And the sooner that people start getting real and waking up to the fact that women are NOT under-privilaged the better

    And I don't know about you guys, but I won't be telling my sons femprop and lunacy
    Some feminists never die, they just smell that way

    Why stop there Fred? How about the notion that women have been OVER-priveledged for centuries?

    In modern societies male-driven technology is vastly more powerful than the ability to make babies. The latter is simply an instinct and a biological gift. Neither education, insight, nor social responsibilty are required ( but they could be useful). The basic plumbing comes free as a gift of God. There's an immense supply. In global terms, it far outweighs the demand.
    SHE starts life with a saleable asset. HE starts life with nothing (unless his parents believe in his potential). SHE has something to sell, with minimal effort. HE has to work hard to become even a potential buyer.

    Western societies are now back-to-front. Those who have much to offer (men) sell themselves cheap. Those who have little to offer (women) sell themselves dear. It will all come out in the wash.

    BTW I need to acknowledge Karl here. On many other boards I could not rant so freely. I would carefully qualify 'some women' or 'most men' in order to be politically correct. Karl's guidelines are broad but if I overstep in any rant, I'll abide by his ruling.
    Whatever I say, write, think, do or even imagine.... some woman somewhere made me do it.
    It's her responsibility and not mine.

    Of course women have been over-privilaged, protected and more valued

    I've stated this point numerous times on my blog!!

    The point I was making above is that society needs to be made aware women were NOT underprivilaged like feminists claimed they were

    I have no intention of letting them off that easily lol

    I was writing a long post about this but it doesn't seem to want to transfer smoothly from my brain to the computer.

    For now I'll just say this:

    Nothing brings people together like a common enemy.

    Ahh, welcome to my world.
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    Re: Is empathy gender specific and is it innate?

    Perhaps, to even things out - and help men who do need empathy, we could remove all sex from the situation.
    For example, in court:
    When the judge hears both sides of the story, don't discuss how Mr. Jones (or perhaps the children's father) would work day in & out. Let's not refer to Mrs. Jones (or mother) and how she stayed in the home to raise the chidlren.
    Instead they could discuss how person 1 had a job and 'they' rose up the managerial laddder. Meanwhile, person 2 remained at home and so on

    Then when men are being abused and mocked in court, the jury will not hear of he was stabbed, how she kicked him in the head with stilletoes, etc. They'll onlyhear that person 1 was stabbed by person 2, person 2 continued to batter person 1 with their pointed foot-wear... etc.
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    Re: Is empathy gender specific and is it innate?

    The first post by Celtic Druid puts me in mind of how I used to wonder why all this talk about oppressed women, the patriarchy, male dominance blah, blah, blah did not ever acknowledge that children are almost exclusively cared for by women. From birth till school – mother, all through school – mainly female teachers. During this time children are almost exclusively exposed to female thoughts, world views and prejudices Etc. – yet somehow we all turn out as products of the patriarchy. As we all know, the stereotype of fathers ruling in the home is a myth – my mother ruled the roost in my home. Why is this never acknowledged or even talked about?

    Women are the ones that shape little boys into the belief that they must protect women at all costs, take it like a man, care more about others than themselves. This is why men are more empathetic than women. And women also teach little girls to expect this. Women are the ones shaping our society, and they always have been.

    The way that feminists have duped everybody into accepting that we live under male rule is unbelievable. Everything today concerned with gender difference is given the twist that whatever females do is heroic, caring, self-sacrificing and everything that males do is self-serving, inadequate, sordid.

    One of the things that has always bugged me is the way women and their advocates carry on about pregnancy and birth. It is portrayed as courageous and of much more significance than anything a male can or would do. While acknowledging that I would rather not go through it if I had the choice, I believe that if males had to be responsible for the continuance of the species they would go about it in a much more dignified, quiet and purposeful way.

    Like men have done for millennia, they would just do their job and shut up about it. Before societies were evident, when the clan needed feeding men went out and risked life and limb to obtain food. Then later, when their society was threatened they faced the marauding hordes. When society industrialised they were the ones who did the dirty, dangerous work. Still they are the ones who go quietly go about their work, but now they must also face the barrage of unfair criticism of the feminized society.
