Men and Women are Different

I have an announcement to make. I’m sure it will surprise many of you. Contrary to progressive belief Men and Women are different. Now that you’ve recovered from that shocking revelation let me explain some new found evidence I have for this crazy hypothesis.

Something that bothers Amanda is that I’ll say that I’m hungry and she’ll ask me what I want to eat and I’m okay with eating anything. She finds it very frustrating that I’m not craving something specific. Last night I asked about dinner and she said that she wasn’t hungry and that I’d have to have dinner by myself. She prepares a rice based dish for me and while I’m eating she’s eating out of my dish. I find this odd because she said she wasn’t hungry. Right about as we finish my dinner she says that the Indian food we had at the Royal India is what she’s hungry for. I find this odd because she said a few minutes ago that she wasn’t hungry; I inquire further and this is how she explains it. Her stomach will give a little signal to her brain that she’s hungry. Her brain then goes through the list of everything that she can think she might be hungry for. If nothing feels like it can satisfy her hunger she’s not hungry anymore. Now that she’s figured out something she’d like to eat, she is hungry. I’ve never had anyone say anything like that before, it’s rather novel. I then explain to her that when I’m hungry there’s a sharp poking pain stabbing in my stomach up towards my diaphragm and all I want to do is to consume anything that can get past my tongue, just so I can make the pain stop. Amanda finds this to be very odd.

Today at work I was talking to my coworkers James and Liz. I’m recounting this experience and right as I’m explaining Amanda’s point of view Liz acknowledges with an understanding “Okay”, and at the same time James says “Weird”. I think I’ve stumbled across a bit of novel information.

So there we have it. Due to the way that women can suppress their hunger and men cannot; Men and Women are different.

    well, you may find more such differences across cultures. people are simply different. they care about different things, they have different ways to express it. they tend to treat people the way they think they should be treated. i like your attitude of not just focus on what is different but rather observe and try to understand it. in a sense, woman cares about *feelings* a bit more, but there are also exceptions.

    It\’s not necessarily that you\’re not craving anything that bothers me, it\’s that you don\’t help me narrow down the vast list of food items that I could cook for you by telling me something you would like to eat. It would be CONSIDERABLY easier to plan a meal if I knew what you would like to eat. Throw me a bone every now and then and just say the first thing that comes to mind instead of shrugging your shoulders and saying “I don’t know, just something.”

    or you may observe what he likes, like treating a baby who cannot talk. 😉 my family is simple, any tofu dish is the way to go.
