dangerous assumptions

All woman are not the same.

All woman do not want, need, think or act the same.

Not all woman are competitive simply because they are woman.

What we do is to act and react to the extreme pressures of our society and how we were raised. for instance, jealously as well as monogamy are the norm. Women seem to assess body language quicker and I believe, more accurately. I could go on but I think you get my general drift.  We were taught to be the way we are to function within the constraints of our particular society.  At least I was.  And on many levels it was not overtly so much as covertly.

There is no such thing as “born that way” with respect to all women wanting the same thing or acting the same way.

All woman are NOT the same.

    crazy…
