Dalai Lama: Women empathize, men kill

Article here. Wasn't Buddhism founded by a man? Hasn't it been led by men for centuries now? HHDL is losing it. Excerpt:

'The Dalai Lama said Friday that more women are needed in leadership roles because they are more compassionate than men, who are valued instead for their ability to “kill.”
“Women have been shown to be more sensitive to others’ suffering, whereas, warriors celebrated for killing their opponents are almost always men,” he tweeted in celebration of International Women’s Day celebrated on March 8.

“We need to see more women in leadership roles and more closely involved in education about compassion,” he said.

This is not the first time that the Buddhist leader has vocalized his support for female leadership, going so far as to suggest that his successor as Tibet’s spiritual leader could well be a woman.

In 2013, the Dalai Lama was asked about Australia’s gender battles under then-Prime Minister Julia Gillard. He said at the time that the world faces a “moral crisis” of inequality and suffering and needs leaders with compassion.

Ms. Gillard, who ended her term as prime minister just weeks later, said that conservatives would marginalize women and set back abortion laws, while accusing opposition leader Tony Abbott of a pattern of misogynistic behavior.'

That violence is part of the tactics of negotiation. They hit their sons more than the father does and teach their sons that violence is a valid tactic. Then they bitch and moan when men grow up violent. Their violence came from a good teacher who goes by the name "mother".

Like comments at the bottom of the article indicate. How are women considered so compassionate when there are millions of abortions? Dont' take Dalai Lama seriously.

I'd like to know what "empathy" women are supposed to be showing.
I mean, men are about 80% of the homeless in the U.S. (similar numbers, here in the U.K.) More than 80% of suicides are men, (again similar stats in U.S. U.K.) 70% of domestic violence is committed by us "ladies", and I hear VERY LITTLE "empathy" coming from women. In fact I hear mostly silence from us.
And even when a female does speak of the issues facing men and boys it's usually with condescension and even amusement.
I see and hear VERY FEW men behave this way towards women and our issues.
We are the "empathetic" sex..?
Pooh! Don't make me laugh. When it comes to men and boys, most of my sex is nearly completely devoid of "empathy". And it makes me sick!
