Anyways, I think Jay's confusing greed and selfishness. Women are definitely more greedy in terms of material goods. Men in my opinion are more selfish.

i think it depends more on personality rather than which gender.

Women are selfish when it comes to material things...but men are selfish in bed.

I don't think there is any relation to gender. And selfish is extremely culturally defined. What a communist thinks is selfish varies completely from what an aristocrat views as selfish. It is almost a half empty / half full thing; selfless people cannot give enough and selfish people cannot take enough.

If you want to play with traditional gender roles, early history presents women not as people, but as property. Since then, women have developed more of a sense of "self", therefore have been increasing in "selfishness" by default. In pregnancy, women concede their life to their offspring throughout the ordeal. But modern women aren't as excited about that as their great grandmothers were.

I don't think you can draw a line over an individual's selfishness and pull out a gender because selfishness is extremely arbitrary.

^ Pip, pip gopher. I have met a lot of people, and it really does not matter a whole lot if the person is male or female in relation to their mind boggling selfishness.

If this is all about a stereotype, then I am sure woman are more selfish about some things, while men are selfish about others.

I said men are more selfish, typically. Not always, but in my life exp, men are the more selfish of the sexes... Not that all men are selfish, or men are naturally selfish, but that our culture tends to make men more selfish. Our culture, being the American culture.

I think we should narrow it down to social classes and also define what selfishness we are talking about
Don't pretend we don't have one now

At the moment I'm living in a suburb full of working class people and... through my experience males have been kinder than females so far... alot of females look really mean around here when asking for assistance males are asked, they obligingly help. Honestly, I can't think of one female stranger that's been that kind to me so far...
Maybe it's because the females have their wits about them and know not to trust anybody so easily in a crime ridden place like this.

But overall I am inclined to think that women have the potential to be bitchier than men. Although most criminals, mega selfish/greedy corporation owners... are men
SO I guess the question comes down to the how and in what selfish ways we mean and which we'd prefer in life, a female's selfishness or a male's?
