The Destruction of Gender Roles


#101

Even the women who do those things do them in a womanly way.


#102

No doubt about it.


#103

So I’m not sure it is so much instinct as necessity. Even a female CEO wants and demands woman things.


#104

Instinct may be the wrong word, as I believe alpha personalities are developed.


#105

I don’t see why thinking that means that I “still think I’m among my Hannity liberal gang”. I’m very upfront about the fact that political views are exclusionary. Almost none of them say stuff like that. They’ll talk as if they’re views don’t exclude rival views, stuff like “If you don’t like abortions, then don’t have one.”.


#106

Interesting concept. I always believed them to be intrinsic.


#107

Personality and instinct?


#108

Another interesting statement.


#109

Innate, born with.

Strengthened by environment, but not removable by environment


#110

From the moment we were born, our parents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, grandparents, friends, spiritual leaders etc., all gathered around us, and told us who we were.


#111

That’s a unicorn. Doesn’t exist.


#112

And some rise above it if those people are negative because born within them is drive and determination. While others would acquiesce.

Just as some people have a talent for drawing and art while others can barely draw a stick figure.

I do think Alpha characteristics are something one is born with as part of base personality.


#113

I believe everyone has every instinct a person could possibly have within them.


#114

Fight or flight? Protective reaction to certain stimuli? As a base, I agree.


#115

Personalities amplify broad or specific instincts. Environment effects personality. Traits evolve. Etc… Lots and lots of layers to the fabric.


#116

Alright. It’s true by the nature of physical reality.


#117

The nature of physical reality. lol


#118

Yes, it is rather a chicken or the egg kind of debate :wink:


#119

:rofl: no it’s not. Your political truth is not mine. As soon as you add “political” to any phrase, you take “truth” out of the equation.


#120

Perhaps. If anything, it’s fun to explore under certain conditions. As of now, I conclude that consciousness precedes measurement in answer to the chicken or the egg.
