Test: esti barbat sau femeie?  

Thrown (Ţâpat) in , , ,

Am aflat recent despre un test care ar deduce daca esti barbat sau femeie pe baza preferintelor tale. Asta-i genul de test care-i oripileaza pe unii (sau unele). Eu sunt insa curios sa identific diferentele. Totusi, nu vei gasi aici un test similar celui cu dreapta vs stanga.

Monkey Boy PenisPutini oameni au nevoie de un test pentru a-si determina sexul – este suficient sa tragi cu degetul de elasticul chiloteilor. Diferentele intre barbati si femei sunt evidente psihologilor – vorbesc in principal despre deosebirile de gandire si comportament, nu despre cele fizice. In ce ma priveste, eu consider ca exista diferente innascute, care au de a face de multe ori cu hormonii sexuali (testosteronul si estrogenul), diferente pe care societatea le subliniaza si incurajeaza prin educatie. Asta inseamna ca nu poti transforma o fata in baiat (sau invers) numai prin educatie, nesocotind biologia, fiindca asa vrei tu ca parinte. Pe de alta parte, acestea sunt idei generale si exista destule variatii de la mainstream.

Nu demult, impreuna cu alti cativa bloggeri, am facut un exercitiu de “cadavru delicios”. N-am stiut la vremea aceea ca atat poemix cat si gramo aveau exercitii similare in blogurile lor. Exercitiul a mers chiar bine, considerand urmatoarea productie “americana”:


Remember the book "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus"? Well, here's a prime example offered by an English professor at an American University.

In-class Assignment for Wednesday "Today we will experiment with a new form called the tandem story."

"The process is simple. Each person will pair off with the person sitting to his or her immediate right. One of you will then write the first paragraph of a short story. The partner will read the first paragraph and then add another paragraph to the story. The first person will then add a third paragraph, and so on back and forth. Remember to re-read what has been written each time in order to keep the story coherent. There is to be absolutely NO talking and anything you wish to say must be written on the paper. The story is over when both agree a conclusion has been reached.

"The following was actually turned in by two of my English students:
Rebecca - last name deleted, and Gary - last name deleted:"

STORY: (first paragraph by Rebecca)

At first, Laurie couldn't decide which kind of tea she wanted. The chamomile, which used to be her favorite for lazy evenings at home, now reminded her too much of Carl, who once said, in happier times, that he liked chamomile. But she felt she must now, at all costs, keep her mind off Carl. His possessiveness was suffocating, and if she thought about him too much her asthma started acting up again. So chamomile was out of the question.

Meanwhile, Advance Sergeant Carl Harris, leader of the attack squadron now in orbit over Skylon 4, had more important things to think about than the neuroses of an air-headed asthmatic bimbo named Laurie with whom he had spent one sweaty night over a year ago. "A.S. Harris to Geostation 17," he said into his transgalactic communicator. "Polar orbit established. No sign of resistance so far..." But before he could sign off a bluish particle beam flashed out of nowhere and blasted a hole through his ship's cargo bay. The jolt from the direct hit sent him flying out of his seat and across the cockpit.
He bumped his head and died almost immediately, but not before he felt one last pang of regret for psychically brutalizing the one woman who had ever had feelings for him. Soon afterwards, Earth stopped its pointless hostilities towards the peaceful farmers of Skylon 4. "Congress Passes Law Permanently Abolishing War and Space Travel," Laurie read in her newspaper one morning. The news simultaneously excited her and bored her. She stared out the window, dreaming of her youth - when the days had passed unhurriedly and carefree, with no newspapers to read, no television to distract her from her sense of innocent wonder at all the beautiful things around her. "Why must one lose one's innocence to become a woman?"she wondered wistfully.
Little did she know, but she had less than 10 seconds to live. Thousands of miles above the city, the Anu'udrian mothership launched the first of its lithium fusion missiles. The dim-witted wimpy peaceniks who pushed the Unilateral Aerospace Disarmament Treaty through congress had left Earth a defenceless target for the hostile alien empires who were determined to destroy the human race. Within two hours after the passage of the treaty the Anu'udrian ships were on course for Earth, carrying enough firepower to pulverize the entire planet. With no one to stop them, they swiftly initiated their diabolical plan. The lithium fusion missile entered the atmosphere unimpeded. The President, in his top-secret mobile submarine headquarters on the ocean floor off the coast of Guam, felt the inconceivably massive explosion which vaporized poor, stupid, Laurie and 85 million other Americans. The President slammed his fist on the conference table. "We can't allow this! I'm going to veto that treaty! Let's blow 'em out of the sky!"
This is absurd. I refuse to continue this mockery of literature. My writing partner is a violent, chauvinistic, semi-literate adolescent.
Yeah? Well, you're a self-centered tedious neurotic whose attempts at writing are the literary equivalent of Valium. "Oh shall I have camomile tea? Or shall I have some other sort of FUCKING TEA??? Oh no, I'm such a air headed bimbo who reads too many Mills &
Boon novels."
Get fucked.
Eat shit.

Daca "eseul" iti aminteste din discutia to communicate we have to listen, nu esti singurul.LaughingRaised Eyebrow

In contextul diferentelor dintre sexe, este remarcabil ca spre surprinderea multor barbati, o majoritate a femeilor par sa gaseasca placere in male-on-male gay porn (yaoi). Aceasta pare sa fie mai degraba o asemanare cu gusturile barbatilor, care gasesc de asemenea lesbian sex “hot”.
