    Males Are More Tolerant Of Same-Sex Peers, Study Shows

    Women have traditionally been viewed as being more social and cooperative than men. However, there is recent evidence that this may not be the case and new study in Psychological Science reveals that males are more tolerant than females of unrelated same-sex individuals. These findings suggest that gender differences in tolerance may be based on the different functions and expectations that same-sex friendships serve for males and females.

    Wow. I would normally not have thought that to be so, but upon reflection it does make a lot of sense.
    "Gallantly shall he speak and gifts bring who wishes for woman's love: praise the features of the fair girl. Who courts well will conquer."

    The three highest causes of the true human are: Truth, Honor, and Duty.

    I think the key to understanding this is the importance of coalitionary violence for the success of males, which even lives on in ritualised form within our pacified social structure.

    Increased tolerance towards peers should nicely contrast with decreased tolerance towards outsiders.

    Interesting article. I thought most people already knew this.

    """The researchers caution, however, that their definition of tolerance may be limited and more work needs to be done to uncover the fundamental processes suggested by their findings."""


    There could be many reasons why males are more 'tolerant'. My view is that male social hierarchy has a more organized structure than female social hierarchy, and groups of male peers tend to resolve instability (inter-peer conflict) in that hierarchy very quickly.

    Male social perception is based on that hierarchy (conscious or not), and conflicts appear as a disturbance in it. So events tend to fall into the context of that hierarchy. From 'who looks away first' when making eye contact with a male stranger on the street to ,'which of my male room-mates left the dirty plate in the sink?'. The importance of either case depends on the (perceived) position of the antagonist (the other guy) in the hierarchy relative to ones own position.

    Conflict among males is often resolved with violence, and this violence often leads to a closer bond between the two males who were previously in conflict. Seeing how hard your friend can punch you in the face and seeing how well he can take a punch from you brings you closer to him as a male friend. This kind of 'test' gives you an idea of who you can really count on to be able to handle violence with another group that affects the success of the home group as a whole.

    So when we are mad at each other we do not stew about it, we confront each other and either resolve it with words or with fists. Then we are friends again, and are closer than before. This is why a male member of the group who stews about things, talks about the conflict to others, but never confronts his adversary is called a "b!tch" (a spiteful female) or a "little punk" (an immature male who needs sense beat into him) and slides to the bottom of the social ladder.

    So yes, even as we bloody each others noses and bruise each others ribs we tolerate one another very well and even in the midst of violent conflict can excel at coordinating our efforts successfully to whatever ends the group has determined.

    Who cares?
    In the olden days, most of the young men were killed on the battlefield, providing a surplus of women which made it easier for surviving men to get "lucky".



    Now it's the opposite problem. Although women might outnumber men statistic wise (mainly because of less risky lifestyles and living longer), I think men outnumber women in the youth demographic and I see this everyday when walking on the street, using public transit and going to university classes.



    So in this case I support homosexuality. It'll just provide a surplus of women for me
