Since I’m already probably in trouble for my op-ed post, I’m going to put up another one.
You know those silly quizzes on Facebook? Usually, they’re just fun and don’t mean a thing, and I take one and immediately forget about it, moving right along with life.
Today, however, I took a quiz that told me I have a 63% male brain, and a 37% female brain.
I cannot tell you how annoying that is. The quiz is based solely on the premise that all men think logically all the time, and all women think emotionally all the time. No one thinks just one way all the time. I do not find it a compliment when some man, in wide-eyed amazement, tells me that I think like a man. I just think he must be stupid.
I just THINK! Women do, you know. Unless you are some kind of genetic mutant who has a head full of nothing but testosterone or estrogen, you are thinking. It’s part of the human condition.
How shocking it must be for Mr. Testosterone to meet a woman who doesn’t swoon at his manly feet. How amazed Miss Estrogen must be when she meets a man who can actually shed a tear over something or the other.
How ridiculous that these stereotypes are accepted as absolute truth. Good grief.
So if a woman is a successful attorney, it’s not because she’s a smart, careful, organized, capable woman. It’s because she thinks like a man.
If a man is a very tenderhearted daddy, it’s not because he has the strength to love openly. It’s because he thinks like a woman.
If a woman is an exceptional doctor, it isn’t because she’s smart, dedicated, and talented. It’s because she thinks like a man.
If a man is an excellent, caring nurse, it’s not because he has a gentle nature and compassion. It’s because he thinks like a woman.
According to this quiz I took, men have no empathy and they buy ugly shoes. Women need to work on being logical.
I couldn’t even find any illustrations to use that don’t focus on male brain=sex and female brain=stupid.
Ok, I think I’m done.
