women logic! bloody sheit! what makes things better is finding viable solutions to the problems that we face. The problem with some(if not most) women is that some of their "problems" are not actual problems but more like PMS induced mood swings for which there are no viable solutions other than letting them(the feelings) go away on their own whilst providing a shoulder to cry on. This sounds a lot like a feminist using women logic to criticize actual logic.

I don't think she is right. Empathy has a dark side as well. A good toturer must be very empathic. But a good tortured must not feel sympathy for the victim.

Except an empathetic torturer would be better than a sympathetic one who says: "At least I'm not boiling you in oil!"

Latest comment: Allowing our emotions to drive our primary thinking was all well and good thousands of years ago as it kept us alive and was our only way of actually understanding the world around us. Now we use logic predominantly to greater effect. Emotion should never be disregarded completely but to find the best viable solution to things we need to allow logic to rule. Look at what science has done in 200 years compared to illogical thinking for millennia.
