    Of course, with practically everything, there are exceptions. From my experience, I tend to know more males who are on the logical side then the emotional (It would be nice to find a guy who was though!). I also seem to know more emotional woman than purely logical ones. Therefore, my (very stereotypical) conclusion.

    When I respond to a poster, I'm addressing their mind, not their genitals.
    I'm offended, and disappointed.

    If we're calling on life experiences then from my experience men pretend they don't feel, but they really do, and bottle it all up, shake it for years, until it explodes - usually bringing everyone around them down. Men are more prone to channel their emotions into physical activity and violence because that is the social outlet they're given and encouraged to follow.

    Logic? No - that is something you acquire over time with great effort. It's a form of reasoning. Men and women are equally capable and able to reason logically - only men are seen to be emotionless and logical, and women are seen to be emotional and logical (people also call it wise or insightful).

    Now, WHAT they are being logical about is strongly affected by their lifestyle (employed vs stay at home mother - for example)

    So am I, but there are points that do not need to be made when one woman addresses another. There is a short hand that takes place in the exchange.

    Also, some things men say, just don't need to receive a response, whereas when a woman says something contextually similar, I will reply.

    To the OP: I voted yes, but, it's more correct to say that sometimes it depends on the topic.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    All really good points! I agree that men do bottle it up inside more and women definitely like to lay it out, vocally that is.

    If you spend any time on this forum, you will realize that its not women who are emotionally driven, its every damn human being on this planet. Our debates pretty much always include illogical rationalizations regardless of the gender of the participants.

    Heh - My husband's as femme as it gets, apparently - you should be here for his mood swings. They're quite impressive. heh (and then I got to hell for making fun of him)

    Society responds this way:
    Woman has extreme mood swings and is angry often = she's just an emotional woman . . . she's just letting it out.
    Man has extreme mood swings and is angry often = he's holed up in a psych facility. . .because he's more likely to suddenly act on it.

    While I do notice some posters are female, based on their user ID or their avatar, it's never an issue for me in responding to someone's post or engaging in discussion/debate. I don't come to DP looking for dates, so your gender doesn't attact or distract me in any way. I simply react to the content of an OP or post, nothing more.

    I'm surprised a female, who prides herself in being female and considers herself better than men, would initiate such a thread - makes you appear needy for victims or victimhood.

    I don't agree. I think she's concerned about being treated any differently.

    I also think females are better than males in specific respects but not more intelligent necessarily or more qualified to lead, etc.
