our world would be like today if we all lived in a female dominated, matriarcal world?

We don't? I suspect that women would have made as big a mess of the world and society as men have. There is no reason why women in power would be any less corruptible than men.

Question for you: what if we lived in world where you couldn't assume who was in charge by simply looking for protrusions and indentations?

Once a month there would be global thermonuclear war, and the next week everyone would forgive each other.

Now, spungo-is that the best you've got?

There would be no more jails-male criminals would be forced to go shopping with an armed woman guard 16 hours a day and talk about relationships at the same time. I think that'd be a much better deterrent. Female criminals would be forced to watch South Park over and over...

*Shudder* I think I'd rather opt for Death Row... although I imagine the sentence would be carried out by lethal nagging.

No resting the beer, though.

So, what would the penalty for female criminals be? Death by flippancy????? Or maybe just a guy standing there with his hands over his ears saying,"I can't hear you-lalalalala"

Nah, just make them watch 24-hour rolling sports. And mix it in with - violent police-chase videos... and episodes of 'When Rodeo Bulls Go Bad' or a documentary 'The Truth About Jock Itch'...

my only thought is that men would most deffinately be in a worse position than women are now...I mean, we couldn't be corrupt and sleep with the boss to get a leg up (so to speak heh)...I suppose that could be different for some guys, but, eh, frankly I dun give a damn either way, but, look back through history...would things that have been invented have ever existed? Most of the worlds greatest innovators have been men, so the question is, would women have come up with the same things? Or perhaps better things? Or would they all still be jealous of eachothers beutiful hourglass shape thats only been created as a facade using a girdle...so many what ifs in this world aren't there?...like..what if my dad got a transfer to everett division of boeing?...would me parents sell our house and move there or would he just commute even farther than he already does? but, anyhow, since I'm not supposed to digress, ciao for now, I'll post more pointless things as soon as they pop into my head, and you can count on that

In a female-dominated world, hardware stores would have to have tech support.

*The following is not my real opinion, just meant to be humorous!*
When people are arrested, and they ask what the charge, they'll be told "If you don't know what you did, I'm certianly not going o tell you." There will be laws like "Men cannot wear speedos unless they have...." and the doctors would be looking into ways to transplant babies for males to carry them so government doesn't sut down when the Speaker of the house is delivering. The filibuster wouldn't exsist, as the debate would only end when all the women of congress think that they are getting what they want. Tim Allen would be on public display in a zoo, with a sign that says "Man, before the the dawn of the age of women... Do not give tools." Pulic water supplies would be drawn from hot springs, and cleaned by Avida or Deseni. Micheal Jackson would be looked at as "evolving" as opposed to becomming more and more freaky, as he becomes more feminine. Racism would exsist, but "tacky-ism" would be running rampant "You can't hang out with him, he wore a blue shrit with pink pokadots yeasterday."

**Alright, now what I think would happen**
We'd live in a world that is alot like it is now. There would be wars, and other problems, and there would be democracies like there are now. The places where these are would e different, but it would all be in the mixing pot.
