In an ironic twist of fate, one of the most liberal universities in the country (and perhaps the world) has published a new study that openly declares women to be “the most difficult people” to deal with in life.
After surveying thousands of both men and woman about who they feel are the most annoying whiners, naggers, and control freaks in their lives, researchers from the University of California, Berkeley found that most of the respondents pointed to their female kin, including wives, mothers, and sisters, as being the biggest sources of relational strain.
Published in the journal American Sociological Review, the paper evaluated toxic relationships in general and how people tend to deal with them. Most of the problems seem to reside within the family, it reveals, and the most common culprits appear to be those of the fairer sex.
The study’s results were compiled using data gathered from amongst 1,100 diverse respondents who described more than 12,000 of their closest relationships. For respondents between the ages of 21 and 30, sisters were named as the most problematic, followed by wives and mothers. Way down on the list were male kin, including fathers, brothers, boyfriends, roommates, and co-workers.
Amongst older people between the ages of 50 and 70, mothers and girlfriends were listed as the most difficult relationships. Just like with the younger group, male relationships were all the way down at the bottom of the list, suggesting that men are preferred to women when it comes to people’s desired relationships.
“The message here is that, with female relatives, it can be a two-sided thing,” study author Claude Fischer stated. “They may be the people you most depend on, but also the people who nag you the most.”
That UC Berkeley would admit something like this, and in a scientific journal no less, is shocking – especially considering that this is the same institution of higher learning that’s been in the news on multiple occasions for tolerating riots by Antifa terrorists whenever conservative speakers come to its campus.
It’s also somewhat eye-opening that this leftist college is basically admitting that males are different from females as well. If the sexes were exactly the same in every way like many modern-day feminists like to claim, then such a study would have found that the most annoying people are all people – which wasn’t the case.
Not only were women directly pinpointed here, but one could also make the argument that, since those polled for this study all live in the San Francisco Bay area of California, the most annoying people are actually feminist and left-leaning females – which is perhaps even more triggering for not only feminists but those of gender amorphous persuasion.
Another tidbit from the study that will probably anger the gender confused is the fact that most people seem to have relationship troubles at work, meaning their co-workers are the biggest source of stress in their lives. Combined with the fact that most people find women to be the most troublesome relationally, the implication here is that women in the workplace is a bad idea.
“Overall, workplaces were hotbeds of trouble, but not of the ‘difficult engaged’ kind,” the study’s authors point out, further suggesting that the most annoying people tend to be those with whom it is impossible to fully cut ties – including co-workers.
“Whether it’s an alcoholic father whom you want to cut ties with, an annoying friend with whom you have a long history or an overbearing boss, relationships are complicated and in many cases unavoidable,” Fischer added.
