Meh...wimmin....
« on: January 06, 2005, 08:29:27 PM »
This was in the paper today, and all us men had a good laugh at it :azn:

Quote
Women who over-react to remarks about their body shape are only doing what comes naturally, a study has found.

Psychiatrists have located the part of the brain that 'lights up' when a woman's weight and size are under scrutiny.
They say it is the same area responsible for anger and fear - which could explain why women tend to take personal remarks so...personally.
The study suggests that they are born to be sensitive about their body image, while men are more rational :yes:

Words such as 'fat', 'overweight', and 'heavy' have an immediate effect on the area of a woman's brain programmed to take action over threats and emotionally negative experiences. :huh:

Such words have a different effect on men, triggering the part of the brain that deals with rational thought and problem solving. :afro:

Muahahahaaaa! :fugly:

Let battle commence ;)

Have you ever stopped to think that this female method of responding to threats may be more sound than the way men are programmed to respond? If negative comments trigger fear... is it not possible that women may then find a way to improve on their shortcomings? Men, on the other hand, get all rational and just sit back and say things like "Well, it's just the way I am." [scratch, belch, fart]

Food for thought.  :cheesy:

Wait a minute, I resemble that remark... :huh:

Nope, it just sounds like an irrational argument to me :fugly:  Don't worry though - apparently you're just responding to your programming ;)

See, women just get angry, fearful and tearful - then hit the cakes and go on a binge to make themselves feel better, whereas men figure out what they're going to do about it...if anything, because they know there's a good chance the woman is just being irrational again, and they're lookin gooood, despite what their other half's telling them :dance:

Simply, emotions are a double edged sword, too much and you'll suffer, too little and you'll suffer.

Okay. So it's all about balance, huh? I'll have to see how I feel about that...  :yess:

And, Blunt, here's what I think about your comparison of you and I:

 :lipsrsealed:

See, I may be female, but I am also v e r y smart!  :evil:

Since I have time today, maybe I can stir up some shit myself. IF there is indeed a part of the brain that responds negatively to INSULTS (doesn't seem so wierd) then I guess the actual physical response might be dictated by culture as well.  I'm from the "hood," as we say down here and we are programmed to respond to insults and threats with violence or threats of violence--which is the healthiest way, I know. :evil:

Like the time the guy who  called me a "stupid bitch" got sent across the room with a kick to the head...
I haven't actually had anyone call me fat, come to think of it. :/

I tried to spread the gospel in college to my middle- class girlfriends. It's hard, though. This world needs some more ass-kickin' :afro:

Say,  Canadian. Is that your REAL picture? It's kinda hot. :)
