Sarkywoman shared, ‘MUST READ: Interesting Facts about Men and Women‘. Not sure where it originated, but a lot of people seem to feel that these are ‘General Facts’. Please note how it is all made to sound scientific and well researched.
Human Brain Analysis – Men vs. Women…
Women – Multiple process
Womens brains designed to concentrate multiple task at a time.
Women can Watch a TV and Talk over phone and cook.
Men – Single Process
Mens brains designed to concentrate only one work at a time. Men can not watch TV and talk over the phone at the same time. they stop the TV while Talking. They can either watch TV or talk over the phone or cook.
IHM: Patriarchal gender stereotypes being presented as scientific facts. Star Plus anthem propagated the same stereotype.
Women can easily learn many languages. But can not find solutions to problems. Men can not easily learn languages, they can easily solve problems. That’s why in average a 3 years old girl has three times higher vocabulary than a 3 years old boy.
IHM: Patriarchy would not have survived so long if this was true.
Most religious texts and their powerfully argued misogyny; most of history (almost totally refusing to acknowledge women’s existence); and frequently poetry that taught women to see romance in dependence and sexual inexperience were (many still are) written by men (and some women) who had mastered the art of using language(s) for communication.
3. ANALYTICAL SKILLS
Mens brains has a lot of space for handling the analytical process… If a complex map is viewed by women, they can not understand it. … For them it is just a dump of lines on a paper.
IHM: Reminds me of this:
“WOMEN love self-sacrifice
Suffering and good advice;
If they don’t love these sincerely
Then they’re not true women really.” [Alice Duer Miller]
WOMEN S SPHERE If They Meant All They Said CHARM is a woman s strongest arm; My charwoman is full of charm; I chose her, not for strength of arm But for her strange elusive charm. And how tears heighten woman s powers! My typist weeps for hours and hours: I took her for her weeping powers They so delight my business hours. A woman lives by intuition. Though my accountant shuns addition She has the rarest intuition. (And I myself can do addition.) Timidity in girls is nice. My cook is so afraid of mice. Now you ll admit it s very nice To feel your cook s afraid of mice.[Alice Duer Miller]
4. CAR DRIVING.
While driving a car, mans analytical spaces are used in his brain. He can drive a car fastly. If he sees an object at long distance, immediately his brain classifies the object (bus or van or car) direction and speed of the object and he drives accordingly. Where woman take a long time to recognize the object direction/ speed. Mans single process mind stops the audio in the car (if any), then concentrates only on driving.
IHM: So we know why women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia.
Also, the underlined part directly contradicts the underlined part in point 1.
When men lie to women face to face, they get caught easily. Womans super natural brain observes facial expression 70%, body language 20% and words coming from the mouth 10%. Mens brain does not have this. Women easily lie to men face to face.
So guys, do not lie face to face.
IHM: Please note women can’t analyze or read maps with these ‘super natural brains’ that observe 10% ‘words coming out of mouth’.
6. PROBLEMS SOLVING
If a man have a lot of problems, his brain clearly classifies the problems and puts them in individual rooms in the brain and then finds the solution one by one. You can see many guys looking at the sky for a long time. If a woman has a lot of problems, her brain can not classify the problems. she wants some one to hear that. After telling everything to a person she goes happily to bed. She does not worry about the problems being solved or not.
IHM: Another attempt to reinforce a stereotype. Fact is men need to communicate as much as non-men.
7. WHAT THEY WANT
Men want status, success, solutions, big process, etc… But Women want relationship, friends, family, etc…
IHM: Patriarchy favors financially successful men. And Patriarchy expects women to see their husband’s extended family, father’s neighbours (before marriage), husband’s neighbours’ aunts’ third cousins (after marriage) etc as their world (ghar sansaar). A disinclination to devote their lives to getting along with the above mentioned is disapproved of. Also, the relationships women are permitted are controlled by the patriarchal role they are playing.
Such ‘scientific studies’ put further pressure on individuals to fit into stereotypes.
If women are unhappy with their relations, they can not concentrate on their work. If men are unhappy with their work, they can not concentrate on the relations.
In general men in patriarchal societies are not allowed relationships unless they can ‘provide for’ these partners. (The partners are kept dependent by deeming the work demanded of them as unpaid labour)
Women’s existence as individuals is often not even acknowledged, they are seen as wives, sisters, mothers of men.
‘In his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama said: “We know our economy is stronger when our wives, mothers, and daughters can live their lives free from discrimination …”
Defining women by their relationships to other people is reductive, misogynist, and alienating to women who do not define ourselves exclusively by our relationships to others. Further, by referring to “our” wives et al, the President appears to be talking to The Men of America about Their Women, rather than talking to men AND women.’ [Link]
Women use indirect language in speech. But Men use direct language.
IHM: This is not true even though, in some patriarchal societies women must not be heard at all, specially by men and elders. Women are raised with rigid guidelines to get along and be tactful (i.e. Relationships). Good girls are described in various patriarchal societies as sweet, soft spoken, tactful, respectful, ‘good natured’, ‘ever smiling’ etc. Women who don’t follow these rules are accused of being disrespectful, difficult, provocative, deserving of well timed slaps by their husbands (and other family elders), shameless, behaya etc.
Men are encouraged to be aggressive achievers, respectful and decent only towards those more powerful. Polite behavior and decency extended by men towards ‘deserving and respectful ladies’ is seen as an exception/favor. Since it’s not seen as the norm, it even has a name – ‘chivalry’.
10. HANDLING EMOTION
Women talk a lot without thinking. Men act a lot without thinking.
IHM: So nobody thinks. Some people talk, some people act.
