Why do men make better leaders than women?

Report as

Well history has showed that men are much more common leaders than women and that men leaders have been much more successful in the ruling empires and large countries.That is because men have parts of the brain that are specialized for dominance and control. While women have larger parts of the brain for creating emotion. Men also tend to look at the big picture more and always strive for power, while women and try to make small things perfect. This would explain male leaders like Alexander the great, who conquered all of the known world.The people he conquered where angry creating riots. Alexander maintained public order through military dominance and harsh punishments.If a girl where in control of a empire such as that, she would probably not have the will to kill and execute thousands of people and would try to change things by constructing building and keeping taxes low. Quickly her and her empire would decline and fall. Campaigns of hate and war are always led by men, who soldiers would see as a strong charismatic figure.History has showed men have always been better strategists in battles and wars,leading to great powerful empires,lands ruled by girls got wiped out quickly

Not all leaders all political. And to be a leader, you have to also be organized and care for the people you are leading. What about rosa parks? She was a leader, was she not? She started a whole movement!

I think you need to go recheck your anatomy and then go reread your history book. Firstly, there is not a single study that shows that gender has anything to do with leadership skills. It's all about personality type, training and experience. Just because society expects a man to assume a leadership role doesn't mean he is cabable of it. Secondly, the reason history shows mostly great men leading their great armies into glorious battle and conquering lands and building empires is simply because women were for the most part not allowed to lead or rule anything other than the kitchen. Thirdly, you spoke of of crumbling empires because of soft leadership, guess what, they crumbled under the leadership of men. Not a single great empire left in the world.

There are actually some pretty good studies that show the differences between male and female leaders. Not everyone would agree with you that men make better leaders. There are quite a few who would say that females are better negotiators, better decision-makers, and better at organizing people and tasks. Female leaders aren't perfect, but I'd like to see what kind of shape we'd be in with more of them.
If men are such great leaders, why is Congress unable to do the most basic tasks? It's made up mostly of men. Then there are all the power-mad dictators and authority figures -- such as in Syria, many Middle Eastern countries, North Korea, etc. Yeah, men really are the best leaders.

Except not all people love and follow God. When leadership is exercised as God meant for it to be exercised, men make excellent leaders. When it isn't, we have all kinds of problems.
Besides that, there are a number of female leaders in the Bible. Deborah, Abigail, Dorcas, Lydia, Priscilla .... others who led and led well. There are others, such as Esther, who were in positions of influence and used their positions for the good of their people.

Umm... If you love god, you love and respect others. You misinterpret the bible deeply.

Why are you so sexist?? This is straight up not true! Confidence, determination, and leadership skills along with brains makes a good leader. Along with an OPEN minded and caring person. This can be either gender. But I'll tell you one thing, good male leaders are backed up by good MOTHERS. Remember that when you make snarky comments regarding women.

Some people are better at leading than others and do have different approaches to the task. Maybe you just don't communicate well with women who are in a leadership role or they with you. Do you find this to be a problem with all women or one woman? If it is with all women, perhaps you are the one with the problem.

Because, unfortunately, in our society opinionated and pushy men are seen as strong and authoritative. The same trait in women, well, we are called the word that rhymes with witch

They really dont... Men decided that they would lead by oppressing the women a very long time ago. Proclaimed themselves a step above because they could throw a rock a little further one day at the caveman olympics... and of course they are bigger so it's dangerous to argue with that determination without a system in place that would protect the one who argued. One could easily argue that they make really crappy leaders on average. All we really have to show when the aliens come check out our background is thousands of years of war, senseless bloodshed, raping and pillaging etc etc. All of this coming from that aggression that seems to dominate the male mind. I wonder how different the world would have been with women in charge. We probably wouldntve had cool things like nukes and mustard gas but we probably would have cured every disease known to man by now.
