Are Men More
Emotional Than Women?
On Thomas James Ball
He doused himself
in gasoline then self immolated on the steps of a family
courthouse in New Hampshire. Mr. Ball chose to use his own
agonizing death to focus public attention on the corruption of the
A truly terrible tragedy - a tragedy that much of the
mainstream media refuses to report on.
To me, this is yet another example demonstrating that men are
often more governed by their emotions than is often purported to
be the case.
Indeed, is it not men, rather than women, who do the craziest
things in certain circumstances?
For example, it is men who are crazy enough to die for their
countries or their rulers.
It is men who end up the most passionate about their religion.
It is men who seek the thrills from sports and taking risks and
True. Men seem to be endowed with greater skills than women
when it comes to logical analysis, mathematics, space and time,
and more able to detach themselves from emotions, but it does not
follow from this that men are, in general, less emotionally driven
than are women.
Perhaps men are more driven by emotions than are women, whereas
women are more confused by emotions than are men.
Or maybe it's the other way round.
Or, maybe, men are more driven and
more confused by emotions than are women.
Or, then again, maybe it's the other way round.
why have men not enslaved women?
And, surely, if men were as rational and as emotionless as they
are often proclaimed to be, then why have men not enslaved women?
After all, it would certainly make good rational sense to do
Think of the benefits!
And who could stop them?
Oftentimes I wonder if men have been sold a lemon when we are
led to believe that women are more emotional than men.
Maybe it's just a ruse - an excuse - for their miserable
A deception of the most heinous kind.
A bit like childbirth being hugely painful.
After all, how do we men know that childbirth is hugely
Maybe it's just a scam by women to wheedle some extra sympathy
out of everybody - and to get time off work.
We only have their word for it.
But we don't actually know, do we?

The researchers then called the moms twice, two days after birth and again
two months later, to see if they used the same pain scale and provide an
overall evaluation of her labor pain. The results show the women rated the
process less painful two days after their delivery than they did when the
researchers asked them again two months later.
In other words, the alleged pain had increased.)
And we all know how prone are our women to exaggerating their

And then they learn how to manipulate their very own children,

But it's all a scam.
The chocolate spinach tastes like old underwear, and you don't

And that's all that matters to that no-good hussy.
Her whole life is engaged in developing the art of manipulating

what about chivalry and honour?
And what about chivalry and honour? - manly qualities for the
Qualities that require sacrifice of some sort.
Is there much that is 'logical' or 'rational' about men seeking
to possess qualities such as chivalry and honour?
Surely, in most cases, the drive to possess such qualities and
to exhibit them - genuinely
so - is much more based on emotion than on reason?

And at the more negative side of the spectrum, we have smoking,
drinking, drug-taking, gambling, porn.
All to do with emotions. And all engaged in by men far more so than
So where, exactly, lies the evidence to suggest that women are
more emotionally driven than are men?
People often think that some of the activities mentioned above have
little to do with 'emotions'.
But they are mistaken.
As a psychologist myself, I can assure you that they have very much to
do with emotions.
Some men often think that their sexual activities have often very
little to do with 'emotions'.
They believe that because their sexual focus is so often on the
female's body - rather than on any relationship matters - then emotions
must have nothing to do with it.
But getting pleasure from physical contact, visual stimulation and,
basically, getting turned on by engaging in sex (or in anything else for
that matter) is packed full of what psychologists and neuroscientists
would definitely describe as 'emotions'; because emotions are, generally speaking, all those feelings that one
experiences - positive or negative.
They affect your mood, your attitude, your sense of well-being.
Indeed, almost everything that has an impact on your 'feelings' is
deemed to have emotional significance.
And, as such, sex and orgasms probably represent some of the most
positive 'emotional' experiences that people have.
Drinking alcohol, losing a bet, getting a thrill when your side scores
a goal, banging your head against a brick wall for being so stupid,
punching someone on the nose.
All these things are to do with emotions.
So. Take another look at all the items that I mentioned above. And ask
yourself again the following question.
"Are women really more emotional than men?"
