May I intervene a bit.
We are moving a away from what
was asking. But I would like to try to just help everyone to see the other persons point of view.
, I believe you might be reading a bit more into these comments then were intended. Let us all try to take a deep breath and not accuse everyone else of meaning this or that.
I have not see what
said since he removed his post. So I will not comment on that.
As far as I can see
was simply speaking of his own experience and of generalities.
Being "an emotional creature" in no way means that all women are an emotional mess. Actually, all humans are emotional creatures, men included. After all, someone who has no emotion would have something very wrong (isn't that what we call a psychopath or sociopath? I can never remember which is which). So I certainly hope that none of us are that type of person!!!
Now from what I have read so far, all that was said is that most women and girls tend to be more in touch with their emotions. Which I also believe is true. That does not mean we (as in all females) are irrational. Far from it. It simply means most of us are better able to anticipate the effect a comment we say will have on the mood and emotion of the person in front of us. Having that sort of sensitivity in no way means that we cannot understand logic or science. Yes, there are sometimes guys who joke saying "girls can't think logically" or that "girls are bad at science" and such. Those guys are just idiots and the clearly lack both logic thinking and emotional understanding! Some women can be doctors, scientists, judges and all that if they so wish. Just like some men can. But not all.
Recognising gender difference in no way restricts people. It only helps to think and organise. After all there are gender differences (and I do not simply mean the obvious physical ones). Anyone is different, and yes some girls like to play rough and some boys might like to do delicate work. But overall, there are activities that interests and attracts one gender more than the other.
I also wanted to mention something about this thread. In a thread like this, with someone asking for general help, people cannot give better answer than general ones. If someone says "give me 2 activities that might interest my sons", the answer will likely be "Hockey and running" simply because without knowing the boy in question, there is a higher chance he might like those activities than if the answer had been "gymnastics and bracelet making".
