This is a question Sexism

Freddie Woo tells us: Despite being a well rounded modern man I think women are best off getting married and having a few kids else they'll be absolutely miserable come middle age.

What views do you have that are probably sexist that you believe are true?

And one last one
I think people have finally noticed that "female comedians aren't funny" appears about 3 times on every page and stopped repeating it. So I'm not stating that they're not funny and thinking no-one else has said it yet, just trying to explain why.

Male humour tends to be a status thing. Men genrally want to be funny to gain popularity and stand out. Their humour is funny to people they don't know as they hope to gain popularity, and is loud and confident.

Female humour is more often a bonding excercise among friends. It is subtle and injokey, but absolutely hilarious if you're in on the jokes. A lot of it only makes sense within the group, a lot is non-verbal.

It isn't that women are less funny than men, it's just that the "male humour" is far better suited to a situation involving going on stage alone and making strangers laugh.

There are more funny women comediennes on telly than there have been for some time but I would still say the funniest comedy is written and performed by men.

Personally I think this comes down to sex. Comedy/humour/performing is largely a method used by men to get attention from the opposite sex. Women just need to wear less clothes to get attention from the opposite sex. Men need to try a bit harder, hence more male comedians. Plus there's the whole male comedy nerd thing memorising entire Montey Python scripts and such like. Do women do this?

Yes some women do do this
I know several.

HOWEVER, is memorising a Monty Python script evidence of a great sense of humour? Or is it just autism?

I think it's being over analysed
I can name several female comedians that I think are hilarious, I can think of more male comedians(that are good) though, but I think that may be because there are simply more in number. So the proportions may be the roughly equal. In general I think that American comedians are shit (there are a few gooduns)both male and female.
