the chromosom - X

An illustration I thought of yesterday, as I was arguing with Yew Meng that women are emotionally driven and most of what we do/say/think are emotionally motivated, while men are just not built that way – so stop telling me to “not base my arguments on my feelings” (he hates it when I say “I feel that…”.

The Woman On A Horse theory.


A woman and her emotions is like a horsewoman (the female “horseman”) who goes everywhere, does everything while sitting on her horse. Her horse called “emotions”. If her horse is untamed and wild, she too, sitting upon that horse will just be carried wherever the horse takes her – the horse becomes the master. But if the horse is bridled, under control – then it is the woman who masters the horse, not the other way around – and it would be for her benefit. Of course, the woman could get down from her horse – but imagine an emotionally detached woman/mother/girlfriend/wife.

Men, on the other hand, are less attached to their “emotion” horses. They swap between emotions and logic, which is what makes them so frustrating, sometimes (I’m not asking you for a solution! I just want you to listen to me rant and empathize with me!). That’s just how we were built, men and women.

Do you agree?

Very interesting post. I think every individual is different, whether male or female, but you have some good points here.
