少了睪丸酮就無事?

偶爾看到的文章,What would we be if women ran Wall Street?

結論幾乎一面倒說女人當家就萬事興,結尾還要故作持平地補上一句「最好當然是男女互補啦」。

文章的理據不外乎女人:1.) 沒有男人那麼具侵略性 2.) 不像男人般ego driven 而且更有責任心 3.) 較少受權勢腐化 4.) 更謹慎投資

在企業和國家機器之下,無論放甚麼人上去結果可能大同小異。公司政策要求你做某某決定,股東要求公司有若干增長,國家政策要求企業配合,如果相信換上另一個性別的人就天下太平,那當初換陳馮富珍代替楊永強,陳四萬換董突首,是否代表香港的SARS不會爆發呢?相信稍有常識都不敢苟同。我甚至不認為女人處理SARS會死少些人,因為整個危機的爆發和處理,跟性別並無太大關係。

不妨再大女人一點去想,假如day 1 就由女人辦Wall Street,會否更好?這個我不懂答,因為我認識的歷史,是由冷兵器年代體力等於權力的男權社會過渡至現在的熱兵器+溝通形像為主導的資訊社會,要突然無視前因強猜一個後果,很難得出有意義的結論。

反而文章所講女性特有的幾個優點,在現實社會並非必然存在。例如不少職場女性為了在傳統男性環境中表現自己,會變得比男人更陽剛,更aggressive以及更ego driven (否則大家就不覺得她有leadership)。而女人間爭風呷醋的內鬥,隨時比男人明刀明槍來得更辣。

所以,來佬貨的新聞也不一定是好野,幸好入面d comments 比較有sense,否則米國真係無救了。

又想起Faithless 的一首歌: Mass destruction

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're Soaraway Sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct
You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction


My dad came into my room holding his hat
I knew he was leaving,
He sat on my bed told me some facts.
Son, I have the duty, calling on me
You and your sister be brave my little soldier
And don't forget all I told ya
Your the mister of the house now remember this
And when you wake up in the morning give ya momma a kiss
Then I had to say goodbye
In the morning woke momma with a kiss on each eyelid,
Even though I'm only a kid
Certain things can't be hid
Momma grabbed me
Held me like I was made of gold
But left her inner stories untold
I said, momma it will be alright
When daddy comes home, tonight

[CHORUS]
Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find the courages, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction (x3)


[CHORUS]
Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find the courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction (x3)

My story stops here, lets be clear.
This scenario is happening everywhere.
And you ain't going to nirvana or far-vana,
you're coming right back here to live out your karma.
With even more drama than previously, seriously.
Just how many centuries have we been
waiting for someone else to make us free?
And we refuse to see
that people overseas suffer just like we:
Bad leadership and ego's unfettered and free
Who feed on the people they're supposed to lead
I don't need good people to pray and wait
For the lord to make it all straight.
There's only now, do it right.
'Cos I don't want your daddy, leaving home tonight

[CHORUS]
Whether Halliburton Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find the courages, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction (x3)

没有男人掌权, 又会有其他问题浮现, 反正全男/全女/50%男50%女, 都一样会有问题.

我成日唔明係,點解所謂"成功女士"大多要扮Man 先可以做Leader.

Isn't that endorsement for male's ability!?

係制度以及一大棚人出左問題,無論換咩人上去都死,正如我地換任何一個突首上位,變化不大

> C+

果d我諗唔算係male traits,因為普遍的male已經無乜呢類attributes。應該話上位做頭的,普遍endorse 呢幾種性格特質囉 (大ego, aggressive, 投機)
