    This is actually becoming quite the problem in some circles. Now, whether the women are genuinely "smart" or the men genuinely "stupid" is impossible to know at this time but the women are very successful in their careers and the men are less successful.

    The problem happens when the women wait until their late 30s to get married. At that point, there are very few available men who are successful enough. They are either married or they have divorced but no longer have an interest in marriage and certainly not in starting a second family via fertility treatments. Those successful men who are available and do want marriage and family life are looking at women 10 years younger.

    So, there is a pool of successful women who can't find mates that match their criteria and a larger pool of adequate guys who aren't successful enough.

    Nothing. That's rather the point.
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    What a mess we've made.

    ďThe interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasnít originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.Ē óSaikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.

    "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." óCNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    "What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.Ē ―Robert F. Kennedy.

    It appears to be innate interest in having a 24/7 job. That was one of the stumbling blocks in studying the Scandinavian Paradox. Neither researchers, academics, nor politicians asked themselves "What do most women want?". They asked each other a lot but most of the women involved were themselves career-driven and very successful in their fields.

    Later, they asked actual women who weren't concerned about the issue. Turns out, most of them don't derive as much emotional satisfaction from attaining dizzying career success and aren't willing to invest the time commitment every day.

    Those who were did, indeed, smash through all kinds of glass ceilings in politics, academia, business, and research. There just weren't that many interested in the effort.

    Which is actually just fine. The standard concept of "success" today is often based heavily on some male models of achievement. Some men like these models and pursue them while some other men prefer to have more time for family or hobbies. Most men never become "successful" in terms of power and reward if the bar is set at being a millionaire or running a corporate board.

    There are even fewer women willing to give up their lives to attain this kind of thing so there are fewer women pursuing it and of those, not all competent (just as with men).
