Why are women considered the empathetic ones?

Women are considered to be more capable of empathy but they are much more cold than men, they move on more quickly, they are more judgemental, and friendship among women are normally just a fight of backstabbing, where did the stereotype come from?

They are better at reading emotions, and emotional manipulation.

It levels the playing field as they're so much weaker physically.

That can be used positively, aka empathy, but can also be used viciously.

Men haven't had such an extreme need to be tuned in like that, so we're not.

Same reason your pets will know more about you than you will them.

Their lives depend on reading your emotional state.

women are better at reading peoples vibe.

doesn't mean they care.

just cos she can tell you're sad doesn't mean she's gonna come give you a hug.

You fuckers are killing my blue pill. Thanks!

Pretty much. Part of them being mother's if they can't understand children attempting to communicate their needs then they're useless to nature.

women don't even care about feminism, only what feminism can do for them.

[–]IntrepidLawyer3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

It is equality only when it suits wymn, when wymn would be disadvantaged actually being equal it is called misogynistic.

[–]iResistBS0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Hence why the ebb and flow all the time. Only month it suits them for whatever reason to wear a vagina hat, the next they are pissed off Men don’t hold door anymore lol

They are not more empathetic, they're more emotional. Men think with logic, women prefer what wets their panties

Women are weak, even when able to better empathise with others ( scientifically proven fact ) , they are ignorant and unhelpful, they also don't have the same concept of honor and men do. So they can empathise with weakness but not value and honor strength.

[–]djc_tech14 points15 points  (2 children) | Copy

Go through a divorce and you’ll see how empathetic they are. Everything you need to know about a women you learn from a divorce.

Most women these days are a waste of time.

Well, you're on the wrong sub then lmao

[–]Ill_mumble_that-4 points-3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Well he's not wrong. Sex is a waste of time if you aren't doing it to procreate.

That said, partying and sports are a waste of time too and I really enjoy those things.

[–]jenovajunkie1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm not saying that.

Because they are an extension fo themselves.

[–]redarkane3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Most women are hypergamous, selfish, and narcissistic creatures. And they should be considering their shelf life is usually until 35 and they need to utilize every trick in their book to get a successful male for genetics and/or financial security. It makes sense from a evolutionary standpoint, not that I think it is morally right.

Source: my second ex-girlfriend dated me, her best friend's ex. Didn't matter how good a friendship them two had, she still sacrificed her friendship and made advances towards me. Then this same woman dumped me and got with a doctor and played the part of the good girl. This woman preferred anal sex and ATM, and she got with a doctor by playing the part of Mother Teresa. She secured the bag before her expiry date.

My ex fiance threw away a year plus relationship to sleep with an older man who played the role of a sugar daddy (who had a wife and kids of her own), who gave her cash incentives and vacations. All of a sudden all the memories we made together and the future we had planned didn't matter. They move on quick. I'm 31 with a white collar career, no kids, bright future. Another man with $$$ came in and took the chick. Can't say I blame him.

I wasn't redpilled before all my experiences: I was a blue pilled simp. And I definitely wasn't an incel: I had plenty of luck and lots of sex in my 20s. I was in the camp that you should believe women and that they weren't capable of lying and cheating.

The media portrays women as saints. It couldn't be further from the truth. As men, I wholly believe that in life the only woman who is truly capable of loving you is your mother.

Your girlfriend/wife will never truly love you. You are an asset for resource extraction to ensure her survival and her offspring. That's it. And if she can secure a male with better genetics, higher smv, and better finances, she will fucking do it.

[–]IntrepidLawyer1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It came from Hollywood movies, the same source of that apparently women are capable of romantic love while males are not, when reality is the exact opposite and males start relationships as fast as females can ruin them.

[–]leotard-princess3 points4 points  (4 children) | Copy

Come on guys.


[–]leotard-princess-1 points0 points  (3 children) | Copy

If you stop hanging round with borderline bitches who love anal and choking with self esteem issues maybe this will change. Sure AWALT but women are capable of great acts for humanity. One of my heroes is Brooksley Born. She wanted to stop the horrors of Wall Street and already saw the future shocks of the 2008 collapse...


[–]Ill_mumble_that-2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

The only difference between your hero and the girl taking it up the ass from 20 guys last week is who her father was and what kind of value he taught her that she had.

A pussy can be extremely lucrative for a woman. It can propel them to become a millionaire actress/model, or it can be of little value and just used for her entertainment while she performs cheap tricks.

[–]leotard-princess0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Disagree so much. Everyone has agency. Men and women. There have been amazing women who have risen from alcoholic and abusive families and men who have had every head start and opportunity who have been debased drug addicts who treat women and men like shit.

And a dick can be amazingly lucrative for a man. Check out the Tale of an Osaka Love Thief.

People on this sub need to go outside once in a while.

[–]leotard-princess-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

I am sure she was innately hypergamous. But she did manage to get over it.

[–]Immuchtooawesome1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Stereotypes always have a bit of truth to em.

Women are physically weaker and needed social intelligence to get ahead in life. This translates well into empathy or at the very least, emotional understanding.

[–]red_matrix1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Women are like butterflies. They float here and there. Often beautiful to look at and to be in their presence. But they leave on a whim and often will have no memory of you. Men will try to chase them, and they will fail. Butterflies have to come to you (you need to attract), not the other way around.

[–]WiterS20 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Women have higher capacity for empathy towards children, other women and unknown people, but not toward men they have a relationship with.

Romantically, women want a dad that fucks them. They only care for themselves, unless there is something to gain.

What women give to a man they admire is respect, not empathy.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Because we're evolved to think so.

[–]thislittlelighto-1 points0 points  (12 children) | Copy

Very interesting to have read some people's responses to this, really I'm not sure how many of the comments are tongue-in-cheek.

The scientific literature around this issue seems to be inconclusive, but generally follows two notions:

-Biologically, women are hardwired to be more responsive to the emotions of others (e.g women react quicker to the cries of a baby than men)

-Culturally, women are expected to be more empathetic (and take responsibility for handling others emotions.)

Personally, I don't think it is a difference between men and women, I think it comes down to maturity. If you're mature, you'll have an understanding of how your behaviour affects those around you.

In terms of women being more 'cold' than men, and moving on more quickly - which I'm presuming is in reference to dating, I'd say this is not a universal truth. Of course some women are 'cold', as some men are 'cold' too. I think women are taught a lot more about understanding their own emotions than men, and will rely on support from friends a lot more than men might in terms of handling relationships. Because we're taught it's OK to talk about how you feel! So from an outsiders perspective it may seem like, as a woman has moved on more quickly, said woman did not care as much, but (and obviously it varies from situation to situation) it's more likely that she would have been through the motions of coming to terms with how she feels, leaning on others for support, and opening her heart up again a lot quicker than the man.

Obviously, some women are just plain bitches, but I don't think that's the majority.

I think dating in 2020 is becoming almost impossible, as men and women both feel victimised by the other sex, and tar them all with the same brush. A lot of the time, the people you choose to date is more of a reflection on you than anything else.

I'm also sorry, some of you seem to have gone through some really rough experiences. I just would like to emphasise that not all women are like this!!! And maybe instead developing a mob mentality of sorts, it might be beneficial to talk to women directly about why they may behave the way they do :)

[–]FinallyRed2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

You need to read the sidebar.

[–]thislittlelighto0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I've read the sidebar, just felt like maybe I should crack into this steaming echo chamber of bitterness and self pity a little. Thank you :)

[–]FinallyRed0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Funny because basically your entire comment was blue pill talking points that have been addressed ad nauseum.

[–]vondoom900-2 points-1 points  (5 children) | Copy

Most of the people are here because all women are like this though. How many trillions of studies need to be done before everyone is on the same page. It's the most irrefutable social evidence you can come across - they dont even release dating statistics anymore because I think guys will just flat out stop bothering unless they hover around that 70-90 mark.

[–][deleted]  (1 child) | Copy


[–]vondoom9001 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

There's studies that prove women are attracted to ugly short bald men in the 70-90% range?

How's that glue you're sniffing?

[–]thislittlelighto1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

what do you mean by 'this', though? How are you defining women?

[–]vondoom9001 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy


[–]thislittlelighto0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well firstly I'd like to clarify that being hypergamous is not synonymous with being cold or heartless. I'll discard the original question, which doesn't actually reference hypergamy at all, and tackle your issue head on - I'd like to point out that any person given the choice, and an ounce of common sense and a stable self-esteem, would participate in 'marrying up'.

That said, it may be of interest to read this:

See: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs13524-017-0601-3

"Because the number of highly educated women exceeds the number of highly educated men in the marriage market, the likelihood of educational marrying up has substantially increased for men over time while women’s likelihood has decreased. "

[–]daymi-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

it might be beneficial to talk to women directly about why they may behave the way they do

I doubt that.

The plural of anecdote is not data.

[–]thislittlelighto1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fully aware that the plural of anecdote is not data, but thank you. Would appreciate some studies actually being cited? Very happy to read through the ones you're a proponent of.

What I mean is, from what I've gathered there is a lot of bitterness and resentment towards women here. If you want to create better relationships with women in your own life, you need to talk to them. Unless you're unfortunate enough to be completely surrounded by toxic, manipulative, 'narcissists' (which is statistically unlikely - it's a very extreme end of the spectrum of personalities), all of whom happen to be female, I think that perhaps you're really a victim of miscommunication or just a lack of insight. This forum is an echo chamber, sidebar stating you should post from a red pill perspective.

They are only empathetic to their children, it's in the readings

[–]Transport1270 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

They are just emotional, not emphatic

[–]circlingldn0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

empathy means understanding how people feel, on average women can understand how people feel better than men

empathy does not equal being nice

[–]pebblefromwell0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Because they have crotch goblins

[–]trpthrowaway2240 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Women are more emotionally intelligent. Not necessarily displaying more emotion.

[–]HurricaneHugues0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Because men have always been onoy recogbized for their brutish strength and dominance, and women the ones who take care of children. The lie is that women are more empathetic than men because they're less aggressive and competitive and less judgemental. Yeah right... The most judgemental people are women.

[–]MVWeiss0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

They lie.

[–]IntelligenceLtd-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

you need to to go back to the dictionary empathetic doesnt mean nice (sympathetic is what you mean) it just means your able to understand someone elses perspective but this actually allows you to manipulate them more if you are so that way inclined. to be fair to women they have less of an ability to use direct physical force than the average, man and so place themselves in much more danger by being openly confrontational and assertive so a lot of them have evolved (or at least are cuturally conditioned) to be sneaky and in that way.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
