    Anger can also be useful when it serves as a force motivating a person to take action. Crying rarely has that impact in the heat of the moment.

    I was actually in a very mild car accident (fender bender, basically) about a year and a half ago.

    I pulled over, got out, assessed the damage, called the cops, and made contact with other person involved before the other driver even had time to get out of her car.

    Why?

    Because she was crying instead.

    Not to make sweeping generalizations here or anything, but women seem to run into those kinds of problems a lot in my experience.
    How old was she? I think that plays a factor too. I remember my young neighbor (she was like 19) got in a car wreck outside of our house and she was a blubbering idiot. She actually cried for her mother. . . for real. The paramedics ended up having to literally restrain her because she as fighting with them, and she wasn't even injured. Lol!

    I understand she was frightened and young, and probably explains her irrational behavior.

    She looked to be in her forties.

    To be fair, however, she wasn't hysterical, or anything. It just took her several minutes to compose herself afterwards.

    My mother actually told me that she had the same reaction to an accident she had in her thirties as well.

    This might simply be coincidence, of course, but it almost seems like a lot of women cry in response to stress simply as a matter of reflex. Men usually go the opposite direction and either get angry or shut down their emotions entirely.

    Well, keep in mind that the behavior that Peter was arguing against was not behavior I was supporting. He considers those behaviors things that control women and things that third parties should set some sort of acceptable stand for to make men better in marriages and relationships. Nothing he described in any of his posts controls women or makes them do anything they don't desire to do, and these kind of decisions should be dealt with by those involved in relationship, not by people outside of it. I find it very foolish and two-faced to complain about womens work and then to try to set a new standard that doesn't really remove the underlining problem with the idea, but just refocuses it.

    I agree. While it certainly sounds like his father was kind of a worthless excuse for a man, I don't see any evidence to suggest that he was especially "controlling" of women.
