Why the Male Gender Is the Worst, and How It’s Not Even Close

The male gender is the worse, more violent, and less balanced of the two traditional male and female genders. It’s not even close.

To be crystal clear: I am not saying that all men or even most men are horrible. I know plenty of wonderful human beings that are male. I know some women that are terrible, terrible people. But speaking in generalities, the female gender is superior to the male gender in numerous ways.

In the aftermath of the latest racially-motivated mass shooting (As always, committed by a man, not a woman) in Buffalo, NY, I’m going to briefly explain 10 reasons why most women are superior to most men. And why men need to step it up in this world, especially in our country. Buckle up.

1. Mass Shootings Committed in the United States Are Almost Always Done By Men.

In the past 40 years, there have been 121 mass shootings committed by men versus 3 committed by women. Mass shootings are defined as four or more victims killed at one time, in a public setting.

This study was current as of March 2nd, 2022 by Statista. The fact that 97.5% of mass shootings in the US have been committed by men and 2.5% of them have been committed by women would indicate that the male gender is far more violent and disturbed enough to commit these heinous crimes.

Are men not in control of their anger? Do they suffer from mental illness at a far higher rate than women? These percentages indicate that women are far more in control of their emotions and anger. They seem to have a way higher control of rationality.

2. Men Commit an Overwhelming Amount of Rape Crime.

According to, 91% of rapes occur by men against women, vs 9% of rapes being women against men.

The fact that the percentage of rapes are committed by approximately 10 times as many men raping women as women raping men is a telling statistic. This shows that men are severely lacking in self-control or morality, likely both.

3. Men Suffer From A Fragile Ego Far More Than Women

Some women may get their feelings hurt easily, but men suffer from this more and more openly. I’ve seen the fragile male ego being damaged far more in my time than I’ve ever seen women being so vocal and openly hurt.

One could argue that women hide their feelings of hurt and humiliation better, but I don’t feel that’s accurate. I don’t think that women take things to heart nearly as badly as many men do.

Women tend to be better at processing emotions, whereas men get hurt and openly angry as a response to a perceived slight or insult sent their way. In this regard, this makes the female gender emotionally stronger than the male one.

4. Serial Killers Are Overwhelmingly Male Vs. Female.

According to the Department of Justice, an estimated 85% of serial killers are male. This compares to 8% being female and the other 7% unknown, relating to the percentage of killers that remain at large.

This would indicate that the cruelty required to be a serial killer is a trait that is dominant in the male gender far more than in the female gender. The lack of human decency and empathy in these male serial killers is genuinely disturbing.

5. 96% of Child Molesters Are Male.

According to a study done by YWCA, 96% of child molestation cases are done by male perpetrators. This compares to 4% of all cases being committed by female abusers.

Just as in the mass-shooter and serial killer examples, men commit an overwhelmingly disproportionate amount of these sexually violent crimes. It is quite rare for a woman to be caught sexually abusing a child.

It makes one wonder if men lack empathy, self-control, or feel they are entitled by being physically dominant over their victims. It is a genuinely sickening thing to think about, the giant gap between male versus female violent crime.

6. A Higher Percentage of Men Cheat in Marriages and Relationships

When thinking back to all of the people I’ve known who have broken up over someone cheating in their marriage or relationship, I’ve seen a far higher percentage of the cheaters being men versus women.

I have known of a few women who were caught cheating, but I’d venture to guess it’s about 3/4 of men being caught cheating, at least in the examples I’ve seen or heard about personally.

Some might argue that men and women cheat the same amount, but that women are just sneakier and smarter about hiding their infidelity. I tend to doubt that women cheat as much or more as men do, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they were more covert and smarter about hiding it than men.

7. Men Act Far More Ignorant Online Than Women.

When it comes to one gender acting more immature and ignorant toward the other gender on social media, men seem to have this one, hands down. The comments I see that men post on women’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter would be laughable if they weren’t so pathetic.

Many of these men can barely spell, use proper grammar, or punctuate. I have to assume a large percentage of them are drunk or high when they post some of the dumb things they post.

You can tell they feel like they’re being charming and clever, when it’s quite the opposite. So many of these men are clueless as to how this makes them look to the female gender.

You don’t often see women cat-calling men or trying to flirt with all sorts of random men. I’m not saying it never happens, but men are guilty of this far more than women are.

I’m guessing you’re about one hundred times more likely to receive an unsolicited dick pic from a man as a woman than a random woman sending a man a picture of her vagina. I also feel safe in assuming that if a man doesn’t answer a private message from a woman back, she’s not likely to call him a stuck-up cunt or a whore.

8. Men Are Usually More Racist, Bigoted, Sexist, and Homophobic

Again, this is just playing the percentages. I actually have seen some of these types of comments online posted by women. But for everyone one I’ve seen a woman post, I estimate I’ve seen at least ten times that many posted by men.

One of these that stands out far more than the rest is the homophobic comments. Many men still think it’s acceptable to use derogatory terms for gay or trans people, even if only in jest. This is very much unacceptable and makes them look quite ignorant.

Women seem to be far more accepting of gay and trans people, from the posts I see daily. They seem to use far fewer slurs for people of other races, sexual orientations, and for people from other countries. Any time I post a pro-LGBTQ post, I’d estimate 8 or 9 out of 10 positive reactions are from women.

9. Men Won’t Admit That They Hold the Power In the Workplace

Men still will try to argue with women that there is complete and total equality in the workplace. Their refusal to acknowledge the disproportionate pay differences between men and women doing the same job is ridiculous.

They often feel that by acknowledging such an idea exists, they would be insulting themselves or their gender. They usually feel they’ve earned everything they’ve achieved solely on the merit of their work, not with gender bias working in their favor.

By refusing to be an ally to women’s rights in the workplace, they are solidifying their position at their job or company. Standing up for women’s rights is the right thing to do, but they will act as if women are being unfair and emotional toward their male co-workers. It’s male-fragility that men refuse to acknowledge.

10. Women Handle Their Feelings In a Far Healthier Way Than Men

Women are stronger human beings than men because they deal with their emotions in a much better, healthier way than most men do. Men are still conditioned by many to hold their feelings in and are often shamed by family, friends, or coworkers if they do show emotion.

Women are still far more likely to seek the help of a professional counselor or therapist than men. Men often will only seek professional help for their mental health if a spouse or significant other pushes them to do it.

The fact that men commit a large majority of violent crimes, sexual abuses, murders, mass killings, and spousal abuse demonstrates their true need for therapy. They would benefit from checking their pride at the door and being open to receiving actual help.

To be clear: I am not a man-hater. I have not written this to gain favor with members of the female gender. I feel the statistics and things I’ve observed over my 30-year adult lifespan speak for themselves.

I don’t think all or even most men are horrible human beings. Many are good people and solid citizens. Not all women are wonderful, perfect people. But men need to step their games up. On all of these topics I’ve mentioned and I’m certain, many more.

Women are educating themselves at a higher rate than men are these days. They are seeing the benefit of getting a higher education to be able to afford to live on their own. Being in a relationship with a sub-standard mate is not something most people want to deal with in 2022.

I would love to know what a world would look like where all or most politicians were women. Men like to use the phrase, “Women are too emotional to/for __________.” However, it would seem men are far more emotional of the two genders, especially as it relates to violence and crime.

A perfect example would be Donald Trump. Look at how many angry, emotional meltdowns he had during his presidency. People like Alex Jones, Ben Shapiro, Tucker Carlson, and other right-wing politicians, commentators, and conspiracy theorists do not have control of their emotions and lack common sense and decency.

Men, if any of these topics struck a nerve, work on yourselves. Check into therapy. Don’t be afraid to confront the things from your past, talk about the present, and voice your worries about the future.

Step up your game, be a better human being, and change for the better. Women deserve a lot better than they’re getting from many men out there. The world deserves more than all this bloodshed and violence against women and children.
