    ["men are rational/logical, women are emotional"]

    What does that mean to you? Why? Do you agree with the statement? Why or Why not?

    I tend to agree with it generally... although it's not true in ALL cases.

    All human beings are emotional, but some are more emotional than others... it is true that women's emotions tend to be dictated greatly by their hormones.

    You're gettin' like Anida...

    Emotion is feeling. They begin as chemical reactions in our brain that manifest themselves in a number of physical ways when we interpret situations or respond to stimuli that has meaning.

    Don't ever say that again, please. Ever.

    I wasn't being a smart ass... just wanted to know what "emotion(al)" meant to you.

    Interesting...

    Do you consider anger, lust, fear and/or passion "emotions"?

    I disagree with that statement.

    Generally, people who hold such views have archaic ideas about women and men. I believe there is a diversity of qualities within the categories of "men" and "women" and I do not believe we can ascribe certain characterstics to one gender.

    As a generality- yes it's true. But it is that, and isn't a detailed look into individuals and their situations.

    Do you think women "tend to be dictated greatly by their hormones" moreso than men when it coms to those emotions?

    I hear you. I also think that people are mainly referring to the outward expression of certain emotions traditionally associated with being feminine [sadness, hapiness, crying, being vulnerable] when they make that statement. Its expected and even lauded for men to give in to emotions of anger and lust [not so for women, actually the opposite], but people don't seem to make the connection that those are emotions as well.

    I just wonder... once people start to buy into that stereotype, what's the next logical step in the way they view gender relations... you know? I mean, we clearly see where that lie of thinking leads... I just wonder if they ever stop to think about [the validity of] what they're actually saying.

    Statistics show that most crimes that are committed by women occur during "that time of the month."

    Hormones are like drugs in a sense... because they are chemicals in the body that influence behavior and emotions... a "chemical imbalance" is essentially an over or under production of specific hormones... and we all know that chemical imbalances affect everything from bipolar disease to depression to schizophrenia.
