You know, the more I think about it, the more I think it's our stoicism that's got us in the dire position we are in right now. If we don't talk more, women will continue to walk all over us.
I think, Shiva, that you believe that there is no masculine or feminine innate traits other than plumbing, am I correct?
If not, can you tell me what traits you find that are masculine or feminine?
I would consider a woman who did not like to talk about any feelings to have a more masculine personality.
Shiva the idea that all traits are socially constructed has pretty much been thrown out.
Shiva, stereotypes do not just fall out of the sky.
QuoteI think, Shiva, that you believe that there is no masculine or feminine innate traits other than plumbing, am I correct?No. I don't think many things are truly 'innate' at all.
I think of all traits as human traits. What I'm arguing against is the stereotyped assignment of certain traits as male or female. There are always majorities that make the study look sound, but when these studies pretend that the humans I know are complete aberrations or fallacies... Well, I disregard those studies.
