    Wink Men, Women, and Monkeys (split)

    I personally can't keep myself from making that sort of jacking, "you're full of shit" gesture every time I read one of those incredibly gender dividing comments. :rolli:
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    I think the differences between men and women are vastly over-rated. Most of them are socially formed. Of course, being social creations, they are subject to popular belief, so ironically, people like you reinforce their existence even as you complain about them.

    And for the record, the majority of the time you make some snarky comment about men and women, your depiction of women is closer to what I'm like.

    Word up.

    Y'all are exceptions to the *general* rule.

    I am pretty exceptional too.

    Rock on!!!

    It's a pet peeve of mine to read or hear someone make broad generalizations about how "all men act" or how "all women behave." It's like, are you kidding?

    I don't mind when people make generalizations about men and women in jest or mockery, but when they are completely serious about dividing the human experience into what males experience and what females experience, I just don't understand the logic. If you want to talk about how men and women differ physiologically or societally, and how THAT might have an impact on their behavior, go ahead, but don't try to take universal human emotions and experiences and assign them exclusively and totally to one sex or the other, rather than to the realm of all humans. There may indeed be experiences that apply exclusively to one sex or the other, but it's important to try discern the difference between (1) societal conditioning and/or physiological-based differences and (2) what are most likely universal human experiences, and it's important to try not to blur those lines too much or with reckless abandon. I guess the thing I hate most about these generalizations is that they're not carefully or well thought-out.

    WOAH. Mempy just got serious on your asses.

    Edited to add:

    I also agree with Magic that the differences between men and women are just vastly exaggerated.
    They're running just like you
    For you, and I, wooo
    So people, people, need some good ol' love

    Pssht.

    I've sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo done my research on this subject.

    I actually happen to exhibit plenty of androgynous characteristics as well.

    Go do some research on the physiological effects of estrogen and testosterone on human behavior.

    To put an emphasis on societal and environmental factors on sexuality and sex differences is a disservice to people like homosexuals. They are biologically wired differently, just as women and men happen to be.

    Of course there are and will forever be exceptions to the *general* rules.

    Regardless, please, I implore you, do your research.

    Also, think big, or bigger at least.

    Think of males and females in the *entire* animal kingdom.

    Then think smaller, think of animals in the mammalian sense, sans hyenas, you will definitely recognize behavioral tendencies of males and females that transcend the species level.

    For all intents and purposes and to be concise,

    Femininity ~ Estrogen-induced behaviors/characteristics

    Masculinity ~ Testosterone-induced behaviors/characteristics

    We seem to identify with each other on a lot, Mempy. Why does it always seem like you are in the shadows?

    I've studied evolutionary psychology, honey-buns. I'm aware of the effects of hormones. I'm also aware of certain neurological differences but the vast majority of conclusions about men and women open up useless chicken and egg questions. Also, there are an enormous number of studies that are total crap...

    I recall the thing that was posted here before about men mentally linking sex and money. The interpretation of their results were so poor...
    Go to sleep, iguana.
