Why don’t women read philosophy?

Because philosophy is outdated and no longer useful.

They don't. Writing about feminism is probably an easy way into a philosophy best-seller.

Depends on what you mean by "philosophy." Post-Rawlsian political philosophy is dominated by an excess of math, game theory, and pseudo-economics, which aren't female dominated areas to begin with, so it shouldn't be surprising that women don't tend toward that area. Although, there are some less-mathematical philosophers who write political philosophy today (Judith Shklar, Martha Nussbaum, Iris Young). In modern moral philosophy, different theories tend to be gendered. Virtue ethics is almost exclusively women (Rosalind Hursthouse, Julia Annas, Philippa Foot), which makes sense, as virtue ethics proceeds very similarly to English, a female dominated area. Deontology is kind of 50/50, with major female philosophers among the most important in the field (such as Christine Korsgaard), but it's still dominated by men overall (Nagel, Scanlon). This again makes sense. Deontological ethics are very similar to law, a field with some but not many women in it. Most forms of consequentialism or other unusual forms of ethics have an extremely small number of women in them. It's very difficult to even think of one major female utilitarian thinker. This again makes sense, as utilitarianism and other forms of consequentialism tend to be based in scientism (which women gravitate away from).
On the other hand, when it comes to things like philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, and (to an extent) philosophy of science, there are extremely few major female philosophers. Anscombe comes to mind as a major one; the only other even somewhat major one I can think of in any of these areas is Susan Haack, who isn't even that important. This again makes sense, as modern philosophy focuses on a mathematical form of logic influenced from mathematicians like Frege, so of course, these areas, which tend to be very strict (read: rigorous) with their usage of logic, are least likely to attract women.
At the end of the day, it just seems like modern philosophy is more similar to male-dominated areas like economics, math, and hard sciences rather than female-dominated areas like English and psychology. You could probably formulate a form of philosophy that women would be attracted to, but it would just look like an "x studies" course (which makes sense, as many of those "x studies" courses were formulated as a way for women to study philosophy-adjacent topics without the strict logical rules (read: rigor) that philosophy requires).
This is why, in spite of most college students being women, about two thirds of philosophy students are still male. It seems to me that unlikely that this fact will ever change, as feminist organizations probably don't really care about getting more women in philosophy, which pays pretty poorly to begin with.

>> No.18647517

I recommend casual arm wrestling with friends if an opportunity arises. There is a lot of technique and fine muscle control in trying to improve your position. Just make sure you don't send your torso flying in a total different direction from your arm and the possibility of injuring yourself is minimal. Unfortunately there is an unavoidable culture of serious steroid use for obvious reasons, making it unreasonable to take it seriously in any way.

Holy shit you are so completely utterly retarded, and most importantly, shallow, its baffling. philosophy is about striving for truths, its analysis of reality (something you obviously are not well acquainted with)
sometimes that means exploring how realities of the human experience intersect with lifestyle, and what is fulfilling and what is not, and sometimes it has nothing at all to do with any of that type of thing
the idea that philosophy is limited to self help tips is so completely asinine it makes me question whether you've ever actually seriously engaged with literature in your life
