Blackcat2 Are men more musical? (96* d) RE: Are men more musical? 15 Feb 00

Greetings all

On The Lilith Fair - I attended (I'm male) with 3 female friends (only 2 were lesbian) - It was great and in my mind was really just a marketing move (no insult intended here - just that anyone who puts together a multi performer concert is trying to make it a success - Lilith was - so was Lolapalooza, Monsters of Rock, most Jazz Fests, etc.) Whaty it did was give a wider audience to the smaller groups than they would have had by just doing a bar tour in the same cities. I'm sure it also allowed them to hang out with performers that they respected and could learn from.

As for the main discussion: I think times are changing and more and more women are becoming publicly musical. This has (in my opinion) everything to do with the fact that women are continuing to move towards "actual equality" with men when it comes to public lives.

But to say that men are better or women are better in anything is really an unfortunate and probably incorrect generalization. Individuals are individuals and that is that. Strengths and weaknesses with the exception of physical size are (in my opinion) primarily culturally based.
