Male brains 'not wired' to listen to women

Scientists have found that women`s voices are more difficult for men to listen to than men`s. Researchers at the University of Sheffield tracked activity in the brains of 12 men while playing recordings of different voices. There were startling differences in the way the brain responded to male and female sounds. Men deciphered female voices using the auditory part of the brain that processes music. Male voices engaged a simpler mechanism at the back of the brain. Researcher Dr Michael Hunter said today: "The female voice is actually more complex than the male voice, due to differences in the size and shape of the vocal cords and larynx between men and women, and also due to women having greater natural `melody` in their voices. This causes a more complex range of sound frequencies than in a male voice. "When a man hears a female voice the auditory section of his brain is activated, which analyses the different sounds in order to `read` the voice and determine the auditory face. "When men hear a male voice the part of the brain that processes the information is towards the back of the brain and is colloquially known as the `mind`s eye`. This is the part of the brain where people compare their experiences to themselves, so the man is comparing his own voice to the new voice to determine gender."

They needed a study to learn this? Men don't listen to women's voices because until fairly recently what women had to say mattered little in a man's world.

Look at Politcial Correctness, and the HAVOCK it is wreaking. P/C=Feminism=Anti male= open borders=anti male culture.

Females BENEFIT from open borders, (more types of males to breed with) While it undermines the conservative, ethnic identity of the adapted peoples....


Females are also, less accountable for what they say...because it "feels right".


The road to hell....

CAnt say for sure Western Civilization will survive. Neo-cons are resistant to Western European ethnicity also......

Jeepers, Badmonkey-I don't know where to start on your post.

Females in the US do NOT benefit from open borders as the average illegal immigrant is not a "catch" in the sense of breeding potential (overall low status, small income, low education, high risk for disease and crime). As a matter of fact, illegal immigration threatens the quality of life for our native born children, e.g. exposure to diseases such as TB, poor quality schools, etc.

Secondly, where did you get your DATA on female accountability or lack thereof (or is this just a personal feeling of yours)?

In my world, females are just as accountable for what they say as any man. I work as an independent contractor, and I've yet to see the client who would accept a late product because I told them that a late date "felt right". Ha!

Although it might be fun to try....just once. :)

Interesting vis-a-vis the Greek mythology of the song of the sirens....

Thats correct, women are men with wo's. Sorry, they look and act alike, think the same, etc...bla bla bla...when will this end???

I like women who fart, and spit, and get drunk and puke all over, and want to go to war to kill babies...

Gosh, I dont know where to end...


I think it has been shown at the BBC science site that women are more attracted to bigger dummer men, when they menstruate. So that s scientific fact, for the most part...sorry if its not part of the common factual norm....google it..

Females benefit from genetic diversity, as it were. Males try to keep it in the family so to speak, which speaks to a patriarical system, etc...Sorry, youll have to be able to read between the lines, and keep up with modern anthropology, not anthro-Apology...(P/C)

"How do you write women so well?"

"I think of a man, and take away reason, and accountability..."

Great line from Jack Nicholson, and from a guys point of view, very accurate...!

bordergal,

It is well documented that females are either aracial or seriously hyporacial in their assessment of potential mates which translates to their views on immigration issues. It is obvious from the feminists in Scandinavia which is light years ahead in the feminism department amongst European nations. Hence the pathologic leanings towards extreme leftism in these nations and their subsequent problems.

You may rightfully ask, what about North America? It is liberalism that has infested all of the west and feminism is just an extreme form of liberalism. Liberalism is an untenable ideology that eventually will lead to its own destruction, though NOT before it takes a tremendous amount of its followers with it. History proves this time and again.

I disagree. I am very involved in the illegal immigration issue in the US, and such organizations represent both genders about equally. On a practical note, what use is it to women to have a deluge of low status males overrunning their country? Women looking for mates want SECURITY and STATUS so they can raise their offspring in safety. A native woman is not likely to be attracted to a low status immigrant for these reasons. As time goes on, and the immigrants become more integrated into society and achieve financial success and higher social status, they will become more desireable. Witness the marriage patterns of immigrants in the US. Men, on the other hand, benefit from a larger pool of low status females as prospective mates, since men are more likely to "marry down" then are women for the reasons mentioned above (think Condeleeza Rice and a bartender, or Donald Trump and his secretary, which is more likely to happen?).

Issues related to excess immigration such as increased taxes and social issues (e.g. crime and disease) actually act to the detriment of the native born population, and therefore the well being of our children.

I'll have to agree with you about excessive liberalism. I can't understand how any woman in her right mind could make common cause with Islamists!!!!

On the other hand, I am quite grateful for the early feminists who gave me the right to be judged based on my abilities, not my gender.

Bordergal,

While I commend you on your beliefs and actions towards racial issues in the US, you are not the norm with respect to women and race. I agree that women in the US are more conservative in relation to their sisters in other parts of the globe, however again, they are still liberal sympathizers. The norm is males are usually territorial and racially aware and females are less so or not at all. Males in certain countries have been beaten down over the years into a passive submission of these liberal ideals. Case in point is the absolute pathologic tolerance of male Swedes who will not defend their women against all sorts of assaults, ranging from simple sexual overtures from strangers to rapes by invaders.

You also make my point indirectly by stating that the Mexican invasion has brought "undesirable" mates for women, however if they assimilate and succeed, then women will consider them as potential mates. This is the hyporacial aspect of women. They are not interested in maintain a racial lineage, only in who is the best catch to support the offspring.

Issues related to excess immigration such as increased taxes and social issues (e.g. crime and disease) actually act to the detriment of the native born population, and therefore the well being of our children.

This is true. Another fact of tremendous immigration is the fact that is DETERS many Whites from having children earlier and having as many as they normally would have had if not for these financial and social burdens.

Ethnocentrist: This post was meant mostly as a humorous post. It had nothing to do with race, and I'm a bit tired of seeing you hijack every thread you post on with racial issues.

Consider this a warning.

My apologies, fjordman.

I have to admit that I am frustrated by men who blame everything that is wrong with their society on women (just as women who blame everything on men are abdicating their own responsibility for positive change).

Men make up 50% of the population, don't they? Thus they bear 50% of the responsibility for the state of their society. NONE of the immigration situations in Scandanavia could have occurred in a democratic country without male cooperation.

As my husband tells me when I complain about a political issue that drives me nuts, don't whine about it, fix it!

BTW, Fjordman, we did get a good laugh about the article, despite the unrelated postings.

Bordergal,

I am not blaming women. I am stating a truism. What I blame is liberalism, and that includes men and women.

Ethnocentrist-

"I agree that women in the US are more conservative in relation to their sisters in other parts of the globe, however again, they are still liberal sympathizers. Males in certain countries have been beaten down over the years into a passive submission of these liberal ideals."

Please reread your post from above. It appears that you are positing all women as liberal and men as victims of liberal ideas.

I am uncomfortable with terms until I have some idea of what the other person means. The term "liberal" can cover a lot of terrority, particularly across international boundaries.

Can you define the term from your perspective?

 
At August 06, 2005 7:52 PM, Blogger Ethnocentrist said...

Bordergal,

You are correct, my use of the term liberal is broad and ill-defined. When I say liberal, I mean extreme liberal ideology and not just moderate or liberal thinking. Women are more tolerant and gravitate to "liberal" thinking,meaning open and tolerant thinking.

When I say "men have been beaten down", it is from extreme, intolerant liberalism which men, in general, oppose. I did not mean it was the women who did it.

Sorry for the confusion.

Ethnocentrist-
Thanks for your clarification.

Both liberal and conservative extremism = totalitarianism.

Liberal extremism example: hate crimes legislation.

Conservative extremism example: burkhas.

I will personally take a nice moderate viewpoint any day.

Ethnocentrist, you can post at American Renaissance freely in your style for the most part.Little Green Footballs is also very open, but swamped.

They are nice because for the most part, you have 2,3, or 10 people who said what you were gonna say anyway, or close enough, so you dont have to post in the first place!
