I agree. Women in 3rd world countries are capable adults. They can take care of shit, they're though. (Most of) Our women are retarded, spoiled, can't-do-wrong princesses.

The problem is that they're raised to have princess complexes. I remember one time when I was playing some Mass Effect 3 multiplayer when one person in a group was talking about their newborn daughter and how they wanted to spoil her and raise her treating her like a princess. I tried to talk them out of it, I failed.

People in 3rd world countries don't have the luxury. I remember from university when girls from countries like Pakistan, Nigeria and Jamaica were very mature and disciplined when it came to working. However, I did not have a representative sample, only girls who got accepted into a world-renowned university.

It's not just the women; even our boys are less capable of taking care of themselves than they ought to be. As a society, we're just regressing.

I think women from a developing country who are exposed to these conditions on a regular basis wouldn't behave this way.

Yeah... pretty much. I also suspect the result was influenced by the selection methods: People wanting to show off volunteering for a TV show and producers picking the best looking ones. If they picked some hatchet-faced pig farmers from alabama they'd probably get a more even distribution of work.

You're correct, in fact there are some peoples such as the Samburu tribes of Kenya where the roles in this "experiment" are completely reversed and it is the women who traditionally do all the work while the men laze around all day.Women's only village in Kenya

This might be the source...not 100% positive yet. Not easy looking for a Dutch TV show when you only know english.

Edit: Yeah that's it.

Edit 2: Found this description through google:

Oh right I remember that season lol. That really was hilarious. Think I'll download that again.

Just saw the video of that episode posted below... holy crap. First thing the woman "in charge" says to the guys when they arrive is that they've made a list of things that need doing. Like chopping wood and making fire etc because they are physically weaker... In the interview the guy says they were intially welcomed... like a day labourer ;)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uc2EtMhoKU

The guy shows up and starts talking to all the desperate women like a leader, and the look of admiration on their faces after weeks of living in hell is priceless. They realize it's exactly what they needed.

But even as he's picking up piles of wood a woman just walks up to him and jokingly says he's a slave and they should use him as much as they can while they go sunbathing in bikinis... The guy clearly wasn't amused. If I was him I would've fucked off to another part of the island and lived on my own. What a hell.

Pretty soon he's hooked up and the other girls are clearly jealous and jokingly shouting at them from a distance. Really pathetic and childish behavior...

And the first girl who shows up on the male beach said it's "like a café on the beach, and all she needs now is some cocktails".

As the groups are later mashed together the guys lament at how they had it so good and now all that peace and tranquility falls away ;) The annoying chore-distributing-sunbathing woman starts acting like she's in command first chance she get's, and first on the agenda is dancing etc. The guys don't look very amused :D He then proceeds to ask the women why they fucked everything up so bad and didn't live up to their stereotype of being all neat and organized. Next shot is a girl being depressed because it rained.

The guys then proceed to build them a camp while the girls just stand there and approve admiringly. One girl even says "I remember hearing once that if it was up to women we'd still be living in the stone age" to which another girl says "you shouldn't say that!!" (in front of the men, apparantly) she answers "but it's true... just look..." The other girl is silent for a while and says... "I'm in the mood for pancakes...".

Man... that truely is great television hahaha. You can't make that stuff up.

Having never seen the show, is it possible they intentionally selected really ditsy, self-absorbed girls in order to create this much needed drama for the show? I would love to see the same situation played out in a controlled experiment but those stupid ethics get in the way.

[–] ShinyVoater 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Reality shows always select the personalities that will get the best ratings, which generally means the type to pick a fight or fire-and-ice casting. However, that the men's island didn't descend into chaos across three sample populations proves these data points aren't completely worthless. If you'd like a another one without the drama lama running the show, try this all-female company one woman started.

EDIT: /u/motoguy posted the same thing lower down

Nah it's not. They did the same with Bear Gryllz(sp?) Tv show where two groups (men and women) both have to survive on individual islands. And it's a lot more brutal, they let them pretty much starve and dehydrate until they needed medical attention. The womens group has the same issues as @OP post, they did fuck all but bicker and moan and the producers ended up "leaving" stuff around the islands so they stopped suffering (included 2 small bush pigs clearly used to human attention) which they almost didn't kill because they were "too cute". This was after not eating for several days too...

So feminists should raise their daughters to be independent and capable of solving their own problems and taking initiative to do what they need or want to do.

edit. I wonder how well modern, real-world feminists would be able to live up to that. Also, practice it themselves.

I think originally, that is what feminism meant. Now it means sit on your fat entitled ass doing nothing and whine about how much privilege and respect you deserve just cuz you have a vagina.

This is what a society looks like when composed of women raised in a patriarchal society.

They were raised in the netherlands, not saudi arabia.

And if those guys had any sense they would ask for some pussy in exchange for food. Fuck it, let's be patriarchal to the end. No blowjobs, no food - Patriarchy wins.

They needed a reality show for this? Ask any Basic Training or Boot Camp TI... He'll/She'll tell you...

When I was a TI, I actively and consciencely tried to trade away EVERY SINGLE FEMALE FLIGHT I WAS ASSIGNED!

With the male flights, they'd bicker and argue for about a week... Maybe two... But they'd get the point, work together, and get shit done. They knew they weren't going home until shit got done.

But the female flights... JEESUS FUCKING CHRIST! You'd have girls screaming at each other, pulling each other's hair, and crying right up until the last day. They'd hold grudges, form cliques, and gang up on one another. Very little semblance of teamwork, if there ever was any. They'd sabotage each other, and leave each other out to dry before standing up for one another.

Buy the male flights learned that punishments were easier if they worked together, or stood up for one another... Something you try to drill into them from day #1: teamwork. I can't honestly say I remember any female flight doing this.

Sadly, even with the evidence swaying the way it is, many women would argue this.

Yeah, it's the basic unit for the Air Force. The Marines have a platoon, the Army has companies, and the Navy has gay orgies... J/K... The Navy is a bunch of badass MF's, who can hold their own. They just have the most arbitrary rank structure nomenclature, uniforms, and force structure.

I watched an american version. It was glorious. The guys found the beach they wanted by the end of the first day. there was some arguments, but they got it figured out. Specifically one guy just kept going, screw what everyone else thought, so they followed him. The women spent 3-4 days wandering in circles around the island, crossing their own paths multiple times because they kept changing their minds on who was in charge of directions. They would literally stop 3-4 times per day and elect a new person to be in charge of where they were going. You could write another one of these info-graphics just on the season i watched. I think at one point the producers felt super sorry for the chicks cuz they were out fishing and some random fisherman just happened to come by with some extra fish they got to take home to the rest of them. Felt very contrived. Like they had to consult with medics about how little nutrition the girls were getting and whether it would get shut down based on that alone. craziness.

Don't really know, but it's 'reality TV', so I suppose you can put however much faith in that as you want. I was curious so just looked it up on Wikipedia (again, as much faith in that as you want). While the descriptions of the episodes provided don't suggest that was the case, the only way to really know I suppose would be to watch the episodes. The references by season name were correct, so it isn't pulled out of thin air. At least there's that.

And just as a side note, 32 fucking seasons in the US? I didn't even think the show still ran, yet millions of people watch it.

If the women were told to fail by the producers they would be screaming about sexism and end up on Oprah. Not saying it's true, just my first thought.

And just as a side note, 32 fucking seasons in the US?

US now does multiple seasons of reality shows each year. Survivor: X, Survivor Y, etc.

EDIT: I decided to look up how to spell Oprah.
