"Generally, women are more emotional (than men)", "women are more prone to emotional imbalances and thus, may make decisions rashly/on a whim" - i'm troubled by these statements, deeply troubled.
Consider their implications:
- Women shouldn't be allowed to make critical decisions - they're likely to screw them up because they "may" suffer "emotional imbalances".
- Organizations should never promote a woman to a managerial position - what if her "emotional" decision proves disastrous for the company?
- Women should be banned from holding government office - God forbid that legislation is tabled by an "emotionally imbalanced" woman. Sure, they aren't imbalanced all the time, just "sometimes", just "generally", they "may" be emotional. Can we take the risk with our country's legislation over "perhaps"?
- Since we're at it, lets not even let women work, or drive, or do anything of significance - "emotionally imbalanced" women "may", "perhaps" give a new definition to the phrase "road rage". We wouldn't want that, now would we?
- Let's set up a council of men who will help women make decisions - just in case a woman "may" be "emotionally imbalanced", she can seek help here
Ladies, i am not in your shoes so i won't pretend to know what you know about yourselves and your gender. But, if you're looking for reason why you can or can't do something, look beyond your emotions. Emotions are not your exclusive domain; men can be equally poor in managing theirs.
