So this has been an interesting topic of conversation in my life lately. Apparently, men are more logical than women (yes, a man said that...I know, you're as shocked as I am with that little revelation.) Women, however, are *emotional*. (Duh.) However, does that mean men have no emotion, are NEVER lead by their emotions (no, I did NOT say penis, thankyouverymuch!) and women are ONLY moved by emotion, and NEVER logic?
Well, saying it that way, it seems like a stupid question. But is it? Can women separate logic from emotion? I think so. I'd LIKE to think so. However, every single time I think of a "for instance", there's an emotion linked to it. A past memory for my actions/words/whatever. An opinion...an emotion. I can't imagine the world in black and white, black OR white, logic OR emotion. To me, they go hand in hand.
Granted, some are more emotional than others, and some people are naturally more logical than others. Writer vs. attorney, for instance. I'm sure, regardless of their "career", you can INSTANTLY assign, in your mind, the logical one as the attorney, dealing with facts, and the emotional one as the writer...especially if you ARE a writer and thus you go through 4985047850345 emotions in an hour with your work in progress. What if I said, however, that the attorney is the female, and the writer is a male? Kinda changes up that mental image you had going there, didn't it?
And it also proves my point. Men are not more logical than women (hello?! We will ask direction when lost!). But I DO believe that we are also more emotional. (Yeah yeah, I know you guys are still stuck up there where I mentioned "penis" and are like..what? What do you mean you don't mean my penis?!?! Move along and keep up, k?) So if you ADD our emotion to our logic, yet you do NOT add the emotion to the male's logic, it *appears* we're merely emotional. Make sense? If you're a guy, you're probably scowling at the screen and thinkin' HUH? If you're a chick, 10 to 1 odds, you're nodding, because you TOTALLY understood all of that.
And THAT, my friends, is *logical*.
Yes, it is.
Tomorrow, I'll tell you why I'm thinking so much about this. Oh wait..it's an idea for a book, so no, you'll just have to wait and read it.
