The same is true for intellectual work. An eight year old can work quite hard to solve a math problem, the same math problem that a 35 year old will solve without making much of an effort.

As for the difference between men and women, we generally say that women are better "multitaskers" than men. This is actually not true, here's one of several studies showing men are actually better multitaskers, but this myth that women are better multitaskers comes from the fact that men are also better at focusing (working harder) to solve an intellectual problem. So yes, men do work harder (on average) than women, even with intellectual work. That's the reason successful societies developed by letting men do all the hard and specialized work. "Equality" will make our society far less efficient, which means societies less concerned with equality will overtake us.

Yes, I know, I'm misogynistic for saying this truth.

What defines a "douche bag" is a question of perspective. From my point of view, LGBTQQIAAP rights activists, feminists, and other SJW are the douche bags. But, of course, I agree that those douche bags (from my perspective) can consider me as a douche bag (from their perspective). So let's fight each other for our moral values and let's see who will be the strongest!

Is parroting my post the only thing you can do? By the way, I'm most probably far more to the left than you are. But people who now use this label are just a bunch of delusional, mediocre and incapable fools who can only valorize themselves by virtue signalling. "Leftist" is now an insult because of this. And there's no way I will use this label for me. There's no way I will associate myself with those modern "leftist".

Also, what you view as "tribalism" is in reality having principles. But principles are also something "leftists" don't understand much nowadays.

Comment Re:NO MONEY (Score 1) 643

Since when people need to be the owner of a home to have sex? Back in the good old days, there was this concept we called renting an apartment. It was only when people reached 30 to 40 years old, after they were married and had their first children, that they bought their home.

As for what happened in Japan, it's quite simple : women are searching for men who earn more than them (I saw a poll saying they were, on average, searching for a man who was earning about twice as much as them). So in a society where men and women are paid the same, the result is women never find the man they are looking for, and everyone is single.

Comment Re:Inheriting from grandparents? (Score 1) 643

Millenials have a lot more money and a far more comfortable life than we had at the same age. You talk about the grandparents' money? You have to realize that 40 years ago, not only grandparents were a lot poorer than now, but they could easily have more than 10 or 15 grandchildren. When you divide a small house among 15 people, let's that there's not much left.
