It amazes me to what length people go to excuse the utterly inexcusable behavior of women. One of my favorites is calling a woman “emotional” when she’s instead emotionally unstable and should much more appropriately be called crazy instead. I first noticed this when I did some research related to a draft of a book on online dating I received quite some time ago (that project is in limbo but not dead). I don’t like online dating because women just lie so much.
Anyway, when looking at a few profiles, I noticed that some women described themselves as “emotional”. I found this rather peculiar because I could see absolutely nothing positive associated with that. No, of course I don’t mean that showing emotions is a negative attribute. Instead, a woman being “emotional” means that she is e.g. combative, unable to control herself, or abrasive. Who in their right mind would want that in his life? I certainly don’t.
Women calling themselves “emotional” in an attempt to excuse that they have the emotional maturity of a really badly brought up five-year-old is laughable. Even more laughable is it when they, after an outburst, try to excuse their behavior. A woman I knew thought it was an adequate defense to accuse me of being “unemotional” because I, unlike her, am able to control myself. That made for a fun interaction. That was not even the worst. Blog reader ‘meszi’ pointed out another aspect of defenders of emotional women, which adds insult to injury. While calling a woman ’emotional’ could be seen as at least a partial admission of guilt on her behavior, the new trend is calling the husband or boyfriend a narcissist — and excusing her behavior entirely!
