    Sexism May Shorten Men's Lives: Study

    Sep 15 2005
    THURSDAY, Sept. 15 (HealthDay News) -- In a somewhat unexpected finding, societal male dominance over women -- patriarchy -- may help explain why men have a lower life expectancy than women worldwide.

    British researchers analyzed rates of female murders and male death rates from all causes in 51 countries in Europe, Asia, Australasia, and North and South America. The prevalence of violence against women was used to indicate the extent of patriarchal control in each of the countries. Socioeconomic factors were also taken into consideration.

    The study found that women lived longer than men in all 51 countries. The study also found that those countries with higher rates of female murders (indicating higher levels of patriarchy) also had higher rates for male death and shorter male life expectancies, compared to countries with lower female murder rates, the researchers said.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.

    Killing is our business, and b'ness is good.

    Besides, who wants to hang around and look at old women anyway?

    Screw the disclaimer. It's better than looking at old men.
