    I wonder why emotions rank under logic? Why can’t they just stand side by side as different but of the same value? And I know a lot of woman, who are not over emotional and men, who are. So, why not just drop all these prejudices? If we were all the same, that would be so dull! 😉

      I agree, Stella — I’d much rather be judged on my own merits, as I am, gender & all

    I did one of those comparative writing prompts and was told i write like Wallace Stegner. I really like his books so I was pleased – but it also made me not believe in the accuracy of the prompt.

    Interesting idea, Daal.

      It’s good to be compared to an actual (& fine) writer, rather than all men as if women are inferior…

    I grew up with my brothers and my father. I married a man and had two sons. I don’t know that I write like a man, but I definitely think logically and emotion gets a back seat in my thought processes. It IS a compliment!

    Ha! I’ll give you one better: a friend brought in a copy of my short story, totally enthusiastic, “You must read it – look how this guy writes!” I asked, “What makes you think it’s a guy?” He said with a smirk, “A woman can never write like that.”
