A nice hot cup of 'irrational'

"I'd like a nice hot cup of 'irrational' with two teaspoons of 'undecipherable emotion' minus the common sense, please."

Sadly, those stereotypes are far too eminent at this day and age than any other time in history. Many males, and possibly a few females, have propagated these unsubstantiated claims some even going as far as to provide half baked 'scientific evidence' that females are the irrational, unreasonably emotional, highly volatile species who lack common sense.

Let's take a moment to ponder the concept of common sense. When attempting to define common sense, I've stumbled across a very accurate and concise definition of term and that is: 'The ability to adapt to any situation by applying what one has learned or through one's previous collective experiences through out his/her own life'. Not everyone experiences life through the exact same scope which is why one course of action may be considered 'logical' by one individual yet may not be fully understood by another.

It frustrates me to no end to see these false and completely unfounded stereotypes being thrown about like ocean waves crashing against large boulders just as it would frustrate any decent self respecting man who has been accused of being a serial rapist or a perverted scoundrel simply because he is male.
