    Are men bigger whiners than women?

    Have men become spoiled and want things to go their way, more so than women and do they whine more about it?

    I don't think so, I think both genders have their fair share of whining going on.  I think the political scene these days make it look like more males than females whining wink, but in general I would say no.  Social skills are kind of on the decline across the board and I feel people are not really taught the value of "emotional intelligence" or learning to compromise and value the needs of others as much.  I hope we start to come around and focus on "the whole" more than the "what's in it for me?" mentality that is so pervasive these days.

    I enjoyed the explanation given by ChristinS because it gave me a different take on an opinion I had already formed. As a product of the Baby Boomer generation, I grew up with a father who I guess was so happy he wasn't in combat (veteran of both WW II & Korea)  that I never once remember him whining about anything. However, now it seems as though men of the 21st century pout, fold their arms and isolate in protest over a host of things and generally behave in a way that is somewhat foreign to someone in my age group. I do agree with the previous responder that social skills are on the decline and that there is much more compromise needed between the sexes.
