Does the violence men perpetrate against women indicate that men fear women?
I agree but maybe a man's dominance may be natural as it's probably in their DNA to take the upper role because of the history of mens attitude towards women. But maybe if women dominance triggers such a strong emotion then it would most likely be linked to their past. I think that this question is probably a lot more complex than what one may originally thought as there are many possibilities to this and each person is unique and individual so they would all have a different story. A bit off topic but just asking... is there an age restriction to having an account on TED? Only I'm a kid but I like to be involved in debates and discussions (and the videos) so I signed up...

I think it may do because men have always been the "dominant male" and this has been carrying on throughout history and that woman are the "lesser species". But I think that the violence that men perpetrate against women is because they want to show that they have the power and they threaten anyone who denies it or goes against it, so if they go to all that trouble to prevent the opposite sex dominating them. Then surely they're afraid of change in this case, woman.

What has, or would have, helped you to learn better?
I think that our education now in England is more to do with our creative side and our new ideas. What I don't think we're focusing enough on is the basic knowledge that we need in the first place in order to gain new, intuitive ideas. I think that it's all a bit too relaxed and we need a tighter education system, because it's all well enough to bring things such as iPads into our learning, but because of this students would rather play games and socialize instead of supposedly being inspired by what technology can do these days. So I think sometimes we need to go a bit more old school so we don't take things for granted but enjoy learning at the same time.
