The Male Brain (it's bigger than you think)
"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness, can be trained to do most things."
Men like to think and use their brains. Men have feelings and emotions. So what if testosterone just happens to limit the subject matter men think and feel strongly about (...life is complicated enough). When Dr. Louann Brizendine initially embarked on writing her second book "The Male Brain" (which is the follow up to her best seller "The Female Brain") she was greeted by such comments as "That will be a short book! Maybe more of a pamphlet." HOW INSULTING IS THAT!?!?! (as I said, men do have feelings... I think I'm gonna cry). Through her clinical research, Dr. Brizendine has found the male brain to be a "lean mean problem-solving machine." The next time you ladies are out driving with your boyfriends or husbands he isn't lost, he's just problem solving...
In the male brain, testosterone is KING and he reigns supreme. Dr. Brizendine goes on to explore why this is actually very necessary. The male brain and the female brain are fundamentally different but this is to the mutual benefit of both groups. The greater a female's ability to understand male-speak and the male's ability to understand female-speak will lead to better and healthier relationships.
